Ferro Titanium

(Ti) Atomic Number 22

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. Initially all raw material is analytically tested before despatch to the production plant. An independent assayer performs this on behalf of Westbrook Resources Ltd. The ingot is tested and then verified after crushing to ensure accuracy of analysis.

Our standard specification for material is as follows:
