Ferrotitanium (FeTi), an alloy consisting of iron and titanium mainly used in steel making. There are two main grades of ferrotitanium, the first containing approximately 35% titanium and the second containing roughly 70% titanium. The 35% grade is produced via an aluminothermic reaction while the 70% grade is produced by melting titanium scrap and iron in an induction furnace.
For a complete listing of ferrotitanium specifications, see ASTM A324.

McCreath Laboratories will send trained, experienced technicians to take a represented sample for you. Whether in bulk or containers, our technicians have the training, tools and experience to collect a representative sample, ensuring that all subsequent laboratory testing is accurate and reliable. With our mobile crushing units, Ferrotitanium in lump form can be partially processed on site per the ISO and ASTM standards, increasing efficiency and reducing the amount of material taken off-site.
Laboratory Experts at McCreath Labs
McCreath Laboratories will employ both classical and advanced in-house techniques in the analysis of ferrotitanium. The techniques have been verified through the use of certified reference materials and some are adopted directly from ASTM or ISO standards. A typical ferrotitanium analysis would be done as follows:
|C||Combustion||LECO CS 744||ASTM E1019|
|Al||ICP||Thermo ICAP||In house|
|N||Inert Gas Fusion||LECO TC 600||ASTM E1409|
