Titanium

FERRO TITANIUM

The price of Ferro Molybdenum saw a major upturn since the start of WWII and a subsequent drop since the end of WWII. Today the market remains steady, but with a notable dip when Chile entered the market and continued to expand production of Ferro Molybdenum, as well as other alloys. Another factor in the history of the Ferro Molybdenum market was the breakup of the former USSR, where the single system of mining and production was severely disrupted.

Ferro Titanium is used by stainless steel makers as a stabiliser to prevent chromium carbide forming at grain boundaries and in the production of low carbon steels for sheet production.

Titanium is named from the Latin word 'titan', being the first sons of the Earth. We manufacture Ferro Titanium in Sheffield, England, exporting materials to steelworks and foundries around the world on spot, formula and consignment stock basis.

Ferro Titanium is manufactured by melting titanium scrap (sponge, chips and solids) with iron in an induction furnace. We source titanium scrap worldwide from ISO 9001:2000 certified suppliers. Titanium scrap is mainly generated in machine shops, forge shops and fabricators. We have an extensive scrap processing operation to identify and control titanium scrap. All raw material is analytically tested by an independent assayer before despatch to the production plant. The ingot is tested and then verified after crushing to ensure accuracy of analysis.

Ferro Titanium is predominately sold via our subsidiary company, Westbrook Light Alloys Ltd.

(Ti) Atomic Number 22

Titanium Sponge TGTV grade is used as an alloy addition to steel and as an additive in the aluminium industry.
