Mining and Drilling Tungsten Carbide
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 trust components are made from Tungsten Carbide to get the job done, even in the most difficult of situations.
The unique feature of Tungsten Carbide is that it can be shaped into various dimensions and sizes. And at Eurobalt®, we specialize in making components from Tungsten Carbide.
Why Tungsten Carbide Components for Drilling and Mining Equipment?
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 the drilling and mining needs are for the rural parts of the world or urban hubs, Tungsten Carbides are fail-proof, and they are perfect for a difficult task like drilling and mining.
Components Made of Tungsten Carbide We Manufacture for Drilling and Mining Industry
Tungsten Carbide may be strong, but it can also be pressured into various shapes and sizes. The hard compound is mixed with binding agents and then presses with a high amount of pressure and heat to take the required shape.
Here are a few components we manufacture made of Tungsten Carbide for the 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
