Oil is increasingly produced in deep water environments
The use of titanium in the oil industry.
Titanium is a chemical element, atomic weight — 47.88, covering 22 in the periodic table number. It has a silvery — white. He's a bit like steel. He has a very high resistance to corrosion, very strong metal.
It is mainly used in the needs of missile and aircraft and marine shipbuilding. Titanium is widely used in various industries, including the oil.
With the development of oil offshore titanium used for such equipment and systems, as system of drilling, sea, passing and drinking water. deepwater drilling risers, different heat transfer equipment, pumps, and more.
Oil is increasingly produced in deep water environments, where in the opinion of many leading firms the main structural materials should be titanium alloys and himself. Mine oil on the shelf for a long time be the Russian oil industry, this process is a natural fact for years. Proof of this are the work being done on the Caspian shelf, "Sakhalin — 1", which was also undertaken. It is worth noting floating drilling station, which is being built for "Prirazlomnoye" (oil).
Placid Oil Oil Company first applied the titanium alloy for the manufacture of equipment for oil offshore.
Titanium is a very active chemical element. It forms various compounds, both simple and complex: forms hydrides, combining with hydrogen arsidy with arsenic, nitrides with nitrogen and phosphorus phosphides, carbides with carbon and so on. Titan is not terrible either cold or boiling water, it takes any great atmosphere, shows its very good resistance to salt water, organic and inorganic acids, it is also not afraid. Not including platinum, gold and other precious metals it has the highest corrosion resistance in seawater relative to other metals and their alloys. Titanium melting occurs at very high temperatures. Its physical and chemical properties remain unchanged when heated hardness, low density, and others.
If titanium nitrate is used, its surface a gold film, which is no less beautiful than the noble metal.
