Chlorination of domestic titanium bearing feedstock in fluidized bed reactors
K.L. Zanaveskin
In the article the existing industrial methods of obtaining titanium tetrachloride from various mineral titanium-containing raw materials are considered. It is shown that the process of chlorination in fluidized bed reactors is the most modern and universal method of obtaining TiCl4. The results of chlorination of quartz-leucoxene, autoclave titanium concentrates, as well as titanium slag, are presented. It is shown that domestic titanium raw materials can be processed by the chlorination in fluidized bed reactors. The optimal temperature interval for the chlorination of the Yarega concentrates is 850–900°C. It was shown that the processing of titanium slags should be carried out at a temperature of 1100°C.
Keywords: titanium-containing raw materials, chlorination, titanium tetrachloride, fluidized bed reactor

Induction thermal processing of titanium alloys
I.I. Vegera, A.I. Mihlyuk, V.B. Demidovich, M.Yu. Hatsayuk
The article deals with the using of a perspective method for heating titanium alloys such as induction high-frequency heating. Its advantages and features are shown here. Questions of the uniformity of the distribution of temperature fields over the sectional view of the titanium blank during the induction heating are considered. A new technology and equipment for precision induction heating of titanium blanks with the realization of reciprocating motion of the billet are proposed. The prospects of using the developed technology and equipment for various technological operations are shown.
Keywords: induction heating, titanium alloys, modeling, temperature fields.

Production and application of biologically and mechanically compatible NiTi implants
M.Yu. Kollerov, A.A. Ilyin
Main application areas of titanium nickelide based alloys possessing shape memory effect, superelasticity and high strain-controlled fatigue limit for biologically and mechanically compatible medical implants have been considered. Approaches for the choosing of NiTi chemical composition and technologies of their semi-products treatment for the required exploitation properties of implants and external prostheses have been demonstrated.
Keywords: titanium nickelide, memory effect, superelasticity, strain-controlled fatigue limit, medical products, implant.
