Titanium is a soft, ductile, silvery gray metal with a melting point of 1,675° C (3,047° F) and it light giving it the most efficient weight ratio to common metals and becoming a very useful metal.
A metallic element, titanium is recognized for its high strength-to-weight ratio. It is a strong metal with low density that is quite ductile (especially in an oxygen-free environment), lustrous, and metallic-white in color. The relatively high melting point (more than 1,650 °C or 3,000 °F) makes it useful as a refractory metal. It is paramagnetic and has fairly low electrical and thermal conductivity.
Titanium is one of the space age metals. It is strong as steel but only half as heavy, it brides the gap between steel aluminum, it is silvery and attractive in appear and, extremely resistant to corrosion. Most titanium alloys are capable of continuous operation at temperature of about 800°F (427°C), making them ideal in use in high speed aircraft components. Aluminum fails rapidly at temperatures about 250°F (121°C).
A low-density, corrosion-resistant metal designed for specialized applications. Titanium has a relatively high melting temperature and a high strength-to-weight ratio, so it can be used for parts that must withstand stress at high temperatures. It is commonly alloyed with aluminum, tin, and vanadium to produce strong, lightweight materials.
The mining of Titanium
Titanium is mined using strip mining which is a type of surface mining and in this the soil and the rock overlying the mineral deposits are removed so that the mineral may be separated from the soil. The method is used when the mineral is relative near the surface and it uses large and heavy equipment like bucket-wheel excavators which can move as much as 12,00 cubic meters of the earth per hour and though this a loot is mined to get more of the mineral. There is area stripping which is usually done on fairly flat terrain to extract the deposits over a large area .each long strip is excavated and the overburden is placed in the excavation produced by the previous strip. Contour stripping involves removing the overburden above the mineral seam near the outcrop in hilly terrain where the mineral outcrop follows the contour of the land.
The soil is then sent to factories where they take out the ore through many separation methods. It costs a lot of money to separate titanium from ore. And for that reason it is among the expensive metals and the earth minerals and its uses are very significant because it is used to make expensive materials.

The use of Titanium Ore
Titanium and its alloys are used for many aircraft components and other applications requiring light weight and strength at high temperatures and speeds. Compressor blades in jet engines are commonly made from titanium. These blades must withstand very high stresses at elevated temperatures. Large amounts of titanium are also used in the manufacture of wings for fighter planes. The skin of the wing shown reaches temperatures as high as 300°F (150°C).
Titanium can be formed easily when it is heated above 1400°F (760°C). Complex air-frame sections for fighter planes are often made in this manner. However, titanium reacts readily with air when it is heated, so high-temperature forming procedures must occur in vacuum or inert (shielded) atmospheres. Titanium can also be welded if it is shielded with an inert gas cover or welded in a vacuum. Electron beam welding, which uses a beam of high-energy electrons to make joints in a vacuum chamber, works very well with titanium. Complex structures can be formed in this process. The titanium forward boom shown is strong but lightweight.
The high strength and low density of titanium make the metal suitable for many other applications requiring light frame construction. Titanium bicycle frames are the result of modern advances in engineering. This design allows the frame to maintain its rigidity at less weight. is very important to us and we will not compromise this under any circumstance and our policy of partnerships is very clear. Titanium alloys are also used in eyeglass frames. This results to high-end, but resistant and long-lasting frame. Both traditional alloys and shape memory alloys find use in this application. Because it is physiologically inert and can osseointegrate, titanium is a choice material for joint replacement and tooth implants, and body piercing.
