Tungsten Carbide Balls Have Several Uses

Various ammunition commonly uses tungsten boron carbide balls and stainless steel spheres, including tungsten alloy cubes, to produce fragmentation. They are perfect for creating maximal damage inside a given compressed volume due to their high density and compatibility with one another. Tungsten balls typically have a surface honed to precise tolerances, which might or might not become polished. The sintered tungsten ball with a ribbon around another diameter is referred to as a tungsten sphere. This band is a characteristic of the manufacturing tool. The tungsten cubes offered by TPW have a distinct physical look. Customers may look forward to receiving products with exceptional qualities like sharper edges, squarer faces, and even a greater standard of consistency, all of which are proudly provided by our company.

Tungsten Carbide Ball In Standard Decimal

Industrial Tectonics Inc. produces a normal range of ABMA Grade 24 boron carbide balls with diameters ranging from 0.0050 inches to 0.6250 inches. These balls are given the designation P59. P59 TC balls may be purchased directly from stock in increments exceeding 0.0001 inches. The ABMA specification for grade 24 tungsten carbide balls is always on the range’s positive side (+0.0001″/-0.0000). P59 titanium rings balls are always constructed to this standard. Numerous more TC ball sizes, both bigger and smaller, are also provided from stock and are being created to request. These sizes can range anywhere from larger to smaller. Applications such as ballizing, lubricants, ball screws, compressors, and flowmeters employ tungsten carbide balls because of their high hardness and wear resistance. It is also possible to braze tungsten carbide balls onto a stem or shank, which may be used mostly for valves, gauges, or other purposes.

Tungsten Carbide Ball Applications

Bearings, spherical screws, valves, and measuring devices are examples of applications that use tungsten carbide balls because of their very high hardness and resilience to wear. In addition, TC balls are used in the coining process, as well as pivots, detents, tips, and gages but tracers. Tungsten carbide balls with a size measured in decimal inches are often used for ballizing and hole sizing. Gauging and checking are two other uses for TC balls.

Corrosion Resistance

Tungsten carbide is almost completely innocuous; the binder is often the target of any assault. In most cases, using tungsten carbide as the material of choice for its resistance to corrosion is not justified due to the lower cost of other materials. Carbides with more corrosion-resistant binders may be given for specialized purposes even when the environment is very corrosive.

Standard Fraction Cemented Carbide Balls

The designation C1/C2 is often given to the kind of tungsten carbide ball used most frequently. Many different sizes and grades of TC balls are therefore available through stock or by special order, in addition to the vast majority of regular fractional millimeter TC balls being readily accessible off the shelf. Applications such as ballizing, lubricants, ball screws, valves, and flowmeters employ tungsten carbide balls because of their high hardness and wear resistance. It is also possible to braze cemented carbide balls onto a stem and shank so they can be used for control valves, gauges, or other use.
