Tungsten Carbide is a very dense carbide containing equal parts of tungsten and carbon atoms. In its most basic form, tungsten carbide is a fine gray powder, but it can be pressed and formed into shapes through a process called sintering for use in industrial machinery, cutting tools, abrasives, armor-piercing shells and jewellery.
Tungsten carbide is approximately twice as stiff (high modulus of elasticity) as steel. Tungsten carbide has very high impact resistance and it has very high strength for a material so hard and rigid. Compressive strength is higher than virtually all melted and cast or forged metals and alloys.
Tungsten carbide bushing applications is widely, which is a device to protect a class of components. It is in the actual work and the role and purpose of its application environment have a great relationship. Valve applications, bushings be installed in the valve stem cap trap, in order to reduce the valve leakage, to seal; bearing applications, the use of bush to reduce wear between the bearing and the shaft seat, avoid the gap between the shaft and the hole increases and so on.
Tungsten carbide bushing production and processing of high-strength, can withstand prolonged load, with high chemical stability, alkali, alcohol, ether, hydrocarbons, acid, oil, detergent, water (sea water), and has no smell , non-toxic, tasteless, non-rust characteristics, its widely used in petrochemical industry for Submerged Oil Pump, slurry pump, water pump, Centrifugal Pump,etc.
