Tungsten Carbide

Tungsten Carbide

Tungsten Carbide, is sometimes referred to as a cemented carbide, and is a composite manufactured by a process called powder metallurgy. Tungsten carbide powder is mixed with a binder metal where it is mixed with a binder metal and then sintered in a furnace. The word "cemented" refers to the tungsten carbide particles that have been caught in the metallic binder material and "cemented" together, where it forms a metallurgical bond between the tungsten carbide particles and the binder. The Tungsten carbide industry usually refers to this material as simply "carbide", even though the terms tungsten carbide and cemented carbide are used interchangeably. Tungsten carbide is the preferred material for the parts that must withstand all of the forms of wear and show a high degree of toughness.

Gulf Coast Centrifuge premium quality tungsten carbide tiles are designed to protect against excessive conveyor wear in a highly abrasive process. The tungsten carbide tiles are designed primarily for installation on the Sharples 3400 horizontal decanter centrifuge conveyor, and can be installed in most brands of horizontal decanter centrifuges with bowl diameters up to 24". Our tungsten carbide tiles use a sintered sub-micron tungsten carbide material. This is silver soldered onto a 17-4 PH stainless backing plate, and has a Rockwell average hardness of 93.4 RC-A. Since their introduction, these tungsten carbide tiles have been installed on various types of machines and have performed successfully in many different applications. Conveyor contact surfaces fitted with Gulf Coast Centrifuge Tungsten Carbide Tiles are up to 50 times more resistant to wear than surfaces treated with other materials.
