Tungsten Grit Hard-Facing
The MSSA Tungsten Feeder (also known as a Pneumatic Tungsten Grit Feeder) is used for Tungsten Hard Facing with Tungsten Carbide. An air driven vibrator consistently feeds the tungsten fragments to your MIG torch. A tungsten grit application can prolong the life of a component by 3 to 5 times (depending on the application) which can make a substantial difference to running costs.
Ground-engaging equipment is commonly associated with the tungsten hard-facing process. Ground engaging blades and ripper points on dozers and cat trucks are just some of the numerous applications that this process is used on.
When painted components are subject to hard-facing, the application area is often grit-blasted initially in order to provide a better surface for the tungsten to bind to.
