This new book covers all aspects of the history, physical metallurgy, corrosion behavior, cost factors and current and potential uses of titanium. The history of titanium is traced from its early beginnings through the work of Kroll, to the present day broadening market place. Extensive detail on extraction processes is discussed, as well as the various beta to alpha transformations and details of the powder metallurgy techniques.The U.S. Bureau of Mines was also doing research work at its Boulder City, Nevada, pilot plant. While the Hunter process for production of ductile sponge using sodium metal was first demonstrated in 1910, its introduction on a commercial scale did not occur until August 1955, ... Because they play a role in future production expansions, they are considered here. ... Two processes used for the chlorination of rutile are fluidized-bed chlorination and static chlorination of briquetted oranbsp;...
