Sent into the desert – TungStuds in a test of endurance

Mineral processing machines are subjected to great strains and high levels of wear. Sections of machinery where abrasive materials come into contact with the machine are always particularly susceptible. Any lack of anti-wear protection leads to reduced hours of operation, high maintenance costs and expensive machine failure. In all of those areas the use of tried and tested BETEK tungsten carbide tools pays dividends and BETEK TungStuds, as an additional anti-wear solution, are also exactly where they ought to be: TungStuds are small wear protection bolts with a core soldered into them of high...
