Pressure Tube

Pressure tube Titan Grade 5 (TiAl6V4)

To offer pressure housings made of titanium grade 5 (TiAl6V4) in a highest quality and at an unbeatable price makes us an internationally renowned partner in deep-sea research.

Titanium is by 44% lighter than steed. By that less floatation is necessary and hence weight and costs are saved. Our pressure tubes are corrosions-free and can be deployed up to a depth of 6000m, if desired even to ultra-deep depth.

Before delivery each tube is pressure-tested in our pressure tank and certified.
