Niobium Titanium Alloys
Application of common Niobium Titanium alloys
50%Nb50%Ti is a very important alloy, it is a superconductor at temperatures below 43K. Its alloy wire is usually wrapped in copper.
The most popular application of these Nb-Ti Superconductors in the market is to manufacture Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) scanners used in medical institutions. Nb-Ti alloy (Nb-45% Ti) is used to manufacture light fasteners on aircrafts.
The potential demands for Niobium Superconductors in the future are mainly from nuclear fusion reactors, high-speed maglev trains, magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) power plants, and the storage and transmission of underground capacity. There might be more complex superconductors (such as high Te superconductors) coming out in the future to compete with Niobium Superconductors.
Nb-55Ti can be used in anti-corrosion engineering. Nb-55Ti is used for high pressure equipment to filter Gold and Nickel in high pressure and
high concentration oxygen environment. Niobium also acts as flame retardant in this environment. Niobium-containing Titanium alloys, such as IMI367, are used in surgical implants, particularly in the production of femoral components for hip repair surgery.
