Wear Parts Brazing



Why Tungsten Carbide?

When it comes to hardness, Tungsten Carbide is second only to industrial diamond and is proven

outlast most metals. There is no surprise that it is now the most favoured way to create longevity

and increase performance in agricultural wearing parts

The Economical Benefit of using Tungsten Carbide

The fact that Tungsten Carbide extends the life of wearing parts is no secret, facts show that

it can increase life by 4 to 10 times in comparison to heat treated steel, reducing down time

and increasing time spent in the field. However, wear life is not only increased by the surface

hardness of the Tungsten Carbide, a correctly designed component utilising Tungsten Carbide

in the correct places will be much more efficient at penetrating and cutting the soil, resulting

in minimal smear and compressive forces which would otherwise increase drag and fuel consumption.

The Agronomic Benefits of using Tungsten Carbide

Applying Tungsten Carbide in key areas protects the shape and design of the part, ensuring

optimum performance throughout its entire life.

On a component without Tungsten Carbide, the edges wear becoming rounded and more likely

to smear and compress the soil when running through it. This compressive, smearing action of

a worn part acts on the soil at depth. Often this is at the ‘problem depth’ when soil loosening,

or the key seedbed depth, critical for early crop emergence and essential root growth when cultivating.

In either situation, smearing at this depth creates a barrier for root growth, water and air movement.

These barriers created by smearing are worsened when soil is damp, effective water and air movement is

vital for crop establishment and growth. These barriers can also create localised flooding which even when

temporary will reduce plant growth and yield potential.

These diagrams show how the crop suffers when in compacted ground. The one on the left is suffering as

it is unable to establish root growth and lacks oxygen and water. The crop on the right is doing well as it

has room to grow and sufficient air and water movement.

In most cases with non Tungsten Carbide parts, wear life is improved by making leading edges thicker, the thought

being that they will last longer before the part loses its length and lifting effect. However, this bulkier part will wear

to a more severely rounded edge, further increasing the smearing.

Using Tungsten Carbide eliminates smearing, it enables the part to cut through the soil rather than compressing it,

relieving compaction and giving drainage directly where it is needed. The self-sharpening property of Tungsten Carbide

ensures the cutting edge will never round off, keeping its shape and high performance for the duration of its life.
