Why do we recycle Tungsten Alloys Scrap?
Tungsten, an extraordinary metal, supersedes many other elements with its high melting point (3410° C.), high corrosion resistance, high-temperature resistance, lowest thermal expansion, and no reaction to other gases. This metal is discovered in distinctive materials, which include wolframite and tungstate. Tungsten alloys tend to be strong and flexible, resist wear and corrosion, and conduct electricity well. With a hardness similar to a diamond, alloys like Tungsten Carbide are often used in abrasive environments such as cutting tools and bearings.
Tungsten is also often used in:
- High Thermal conductivity zones
- Arc-welding electrodes.
- Rocket engine Nozzles
- Turbine Blades
- Drill Bits, Inserts, and End Mills
Tungsten imbues tremendous strength, corrosion resistance, and other beneficial properties to other base metals. As such, Tungsten is often binding to other alloys to help tag along with the host of beneficial characteristics Tungsten can provide, such as increased strength and durability. Tungsten recycling has become the focus of the industry. It is estimated that about 30% of tungsten scrap is recycled every year, and the tungsten processing industry can recycle almost every type of tungsten scrap and waste as well as other valuable components. For Tungsten Alloy Scrap Buyers Electronics, Ammunition, Oil & Gas, Mining, and Metalworking shops are the major sources of Tungsten Scrap.
