Tungsten Carbide Balls

Tungsten Carbide Balls

Tungsten carbide balls are used in variety of applications that require extreme hardness and wear resistance. They are used in such applications as ball screws, bearings, check valves, pumps and flow meters. They are also used for inspection tools, gauging, and comparative checking. Tungsten carbide itself is practically inert; any attack is usually on the binder. Since other materials are less expensive, the selection of tungsten carbide solely for corrosion resistance is usually not justified. In severely corrosive conditions, carbides with more resistant binder formulation can be supplied.
