I. Introduction to tungsten carbide button
Tungsten carbide buttons, which are cylindrical components of small size, are extensively used in the mining, construction, and oil drilling sectors due to their exceptional durability and wear-resistance. These buttons are generally employed as cutting elements on drill bits, also known as carbide button bits, and are used in various drilling applications, including the penetration of rock, soil, and other tough materials. The buttons made of tungsten carbide offer superior hardness and wear resistance to the bit, whereas the metallic binder assists in holding the buttons together and maintaining their structural integrity.
The importance of tungsten carbide buttons and carbide button bits in the mining, construction, and oil drilling industries cannot be overstated, for several reasons.
To begin with, these sectors frequently involve drilling through hard and abrasive materials like rock and soil, which can shortly deteriorate conventional drill bits. Tungsten carbide buttons provide superior wear resistance and hardness to the drill bits, making them highly effective in such harsh operating conditions.
Secondly, tungsten carbide buttons exhibit remarkable toughness, allowing them to endure high levels of impact and shock during drilling operations. This makes them highly dependable and long-lasting, reducing the need for frequent bit replacements and increasing productivity.
Lastly, tungsten carbide buttons are highly resistant to corrosion and chemical degradation, which ensures the longevity and reliability of the drill bits in harsh and corrosive environments.
II. Grades of the tungsten carbide button
