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.
