Whenever high corrosion resistance is needed, tantalum is a sensible option. Although tantalum is not one of the noble metals, it is similar in terms of chemical resistance to them. Additionally, considering its body-centered cubic crystal structure, tantalum is very simple to function at far below room temperature.
In a wide number of chemical applications, the corrosion resistance of tantalum makes it a valuable material. For example, this material is used to manufacture heat exchangers for the construction equipment industry, charge carriers for the construction of furnaces, medical technology implants and capacitor components for the electronics industry.
UNS R05200 is thick, very difficult, simple to produce, ductile and also highly conductive for heat and electricity. In many chemical reduction conditions, such as chlorides, sulphides, alkalis, nitric acids, sulfuric acids, and other harsh chemicals, this alloy is renowned for its corrosion resistance. This grade is around 3017 degrees C with a high melting point.
The composition of other elements exceeds this. It has two phases that are crystalline, such as alpha and beta. It is resistant to pitting, cracking, and stress corrosion cracking in many adverse conditions.
The UNS R05200 Heat Exchanger / Condenser can regulate the transfer of heat easily. This alloy exhibits a high thermal expansion coefficient.
Tantalum is ductile, superconductive and has high power, low thermal expansion and high capacitance at high temperatures. Tantalum is robust, strong, and ductile, and provides good workability and weldability as well. Moreover, with strong dielectric properties, it has the ability to generate uniform and stable oxides. The resistance of tantalum to corrosive attacks by acids and liquid metals is excellent.
Tantalum R05200 Tubes are used in the manufacturing and repair of chemical process equipment and heat exchangers, Rupture discs, Capacitors, Semiconductors, Medical implants, and Medical Devices.
It is suggested that using the seamless tantalum 2.5 percent tungsten tubing in order to increase the metal ‘s efficiency.
There is a large range of diameters and wall thicknesses available. The standard specification for pure tantalum is ASTM B521 R05200 and 2.5% tungsten is ASTM B521 R05252 for tantalum.
This removes weak points in the goods due to cracking, holes or tearing that might fail. In addition, we can conduct an eddy current test to detect leaks and test the tubes for pressure to ensure that no leaks are present.
Tantalum has outstanding corrosion resistance in general, and is frequently used in chemical processing
equipment. Tantalum is rugged, robust and ductile with low expansion, superconductive and high-temperature strength. The melting point of Tantalum at 3017 degrees Celsius is surpassed only by tungsten and rhenium. Tantalum is very malleable with excellent corrosion resistance, and can be cold-forged, rolled, punched, pulled and otherwise easily formed.
Tantalum’s naturally occurring oxide surface film is one of the most corrosion-resistant materials in general use, offering intense resistance in violent media. Tantalum will not corrode at nitric acid concentrations of up to 98 percent and at temperatures of 100 degree C.
