Tungsten carbide parts for mining and drilling equipment
Tungsten carbide is one of the hardest materials on earth, according to the Mohs Hardness Scale, the compound ranks above 8 on the qualitative scale. This is why the earthmoving industry and those involved in drilling and mining rely on different components made from tungsten carbide to get the job done, even in the most challenging situations.
The unique feature of tungsten carbide is that it can be shaped into various forms and sizes. At Eurobalt®, we specialize in making components from tungsten carbide.
Why use tungsten carbide components for drilling and mining equipment?
Drilling and mining are already difficult, but with the help of tungsten carbide components, there is one less thing to worry about. Even the toughest of surfaces can be breached with tungsten carbide.
Unless you drill through diamond, there is no doubt that tungsten carbide components are perfect for your drilling and mining equipment. So, here are a few reasons to consider tungsten carbide parts for your drilling and mining attachments and inserts:
Two times harder and double the density of steel
Less wear on the tips and parts made of Tungsten Carbide
Can drill through the hardest of rock faces
Prolonged use and less downtime in replacing tips and buttons
Suitable for soft or hard surfaces
Assured Performance in harshest of climates and situations
Whether drilling and mining equipment is used in the rural areas or urban hubs, tungsten carbide parts are effective and perfect for difficult tasks such as drilling and mining.
Tungsten carbide components manufactured by Eurobalt for the drilling and mining industries
Tungsten carbide may be strong, but it can also be pressed into various shapes and sizes. The hard compound is mixed with binding agents and then pressed with a high amount of pressure and heat to take the required shape.
Here are a few components made from tungsten carbide that we manufacture for drilling and mining equipment:
used on the tips of drill rigs or handheld corded drills
used against abrasive surfaces, especially rocks of all shapes and sizes
used as inserts in rollers and large mining equipment used for tunneling
used as abrasive in the machining industry, tips used as an attachment for earthmoving vehicles
Auger Head Inserts
used in drilling augers for better performance
Rings, Rods, Bushings, and Other Wear Parts
used for the mining and drilling vehicle
used for high-pressure spraying and cooling of drill tips
