Buying and Selling Tungsten Scrap Metal

Tungsten’s many alloys have numerous applications, including incandescent light bulb filaments, X-ray tubes (as both the filament and target), electrodes in TIG welding, superalloys, and radiation shielding. Tungsten’s hardness and high density give it military applications in penetrating projectiles. Tungsten compounds are also often used as industrial catalysts.A hard, rare metal under standard conditions when uncombined, tungsten is found naturally on Earth almost exclusively in chemical compounds.

In its raw form, tungsten is a hard steel-grey metal that is often brittle and hard to work. If made very pure, tungsten retains its hardness (which exceeds that of many steels), and becomes malleable enough that it can be worked easily. It is worked by forging, drawing, or extruding. Tungsten objects are also commonly formed by sintering.

Of all metals in pure form, tungsten has the highest melting point (3422 °C, 6192 °F), lowest vapor pressure (at temperatures above 1650 °C, 3000 °F) and the highest tensile strength. Although carbon remains solid at higher temperatures than tungsten, carbon sublimes, rather than melts, so tungsten is considered to have a higher melting point. Tungsten has the lowest coefficient of thermal expansion of any pure metal. The low thermal expansion and high melting point and tensile strength of tungsten originate from strong covalent bonds formed between tungsten atoms by the 5d electrons. Alloying small quantities of tungsten with steel greatly increases its toughness.

Drilling Bits

WMR buy drilling bits from mine sites across Western Australia, these are the drill bits we buy and some information on them.

Rotary Tricone – range’s in size from 159mm to 349mm

DTH (Down The Hole) Drill bits

Flat Face – General purpose bits that will work in all rock conditions but should be used in hard or abrasive conditions such as granite, basalt and hard limestone.

Double Gauge Face – Suitable for fast penetration rates in medium to hard rock formations. This bit face is designed for high air pressures.

Convex Face – Are designed for fast penetration rates in softer rock like shale and limestone with low silica content.

Concave Face – Is designed for unconsolidated or broken rock. These face features will help drill straighter holes in medium to hard formations.

Drop Centre – For high penetration rates in soft to medium hard and fissured rock formations.
