Marine Special Products
Righton Blackburns supply a range of special products to meet specific marine application requirements.
Titanium forms a very tenacious surface oxide layer, which is an outstanding corrosion inhibitor. In many harsh environments it can outlast competing materials as much as 5:1. It is corrosion resistant and has a high strength/weight ratio. Titanium is also erosion-corrosion resistant (critical speed in sea water is high. At speeds below 35m/s the passivated film is not removed). Titanium can be used in sea water desalination plants and for flow lines and riser pipes in the offshore industry.
Corten® is recommended for use where high structural strength is needed and where maintenance is difficult. It is a high strength, low alloy, weldable structural steel possessing excellent weathering resistance and it is ideal for galvanising in marine and other aggressive environments. Corten® is available in sheet & plate in 1mm - 50mm thicknesses.
Tungum Alloy Tube & Bundles
Highly resistant to sea water and its atmosphere, Tungum® resists both stress and crevice corrosion to offer outstanding serviceability. It has a high strength/weight ratio, excellent ductility and first class fatigue properties. Tungum® can be used in a wide range of applications in both hydraulic and pneumatic circuits. Tungum® is available in 8mm - 50mm OD.
Tubes in various metals in a weatherproof plastic jacket for pneumatic and hydraulic control systems including thermal insulated tubing for steam traced metering, sampling and analyser lines, steam and condenser lines and electrically traced tube bundles for metering, sampling and analyser lines. Tube bundles provide highly economical solutions, they can be easily and quickly laid like an energy cable, require no maintenance and are extremely well protected against mechanical damage, abrasion and corrosion. Tube bundles can be delivered in very long units, thus reducing waste material and the need for tube connections.
