Why Choose Tungsten Wearing Parts?

If you’re getting your teeth into cultivation season, purchasing tungsten wearing parts might be an option you’re considering. Agri-Linc stock a large range of tungsten wearing parts from the BISON and Duratil brands that have been specially developed and designed by our experienced teams.

What Are The Benefits Of Tungsten Wearing Parts?

There are several benefits of using tungsten carbide agricultural wearing parts on your machinery…


Tungsten carbide is one of the toughest materials on the market, being inferior only to industrial diamond. Adding tungsten carbide to wearing parts is proven to increase life by 4 to 10 times in comparison to regular heat-treated steel. This means that tungsten carbide wearing parts will last longer and require less maintenance and machine downtime, ultimately saving you money.

Corrosion Resistance

Tungsten carbide is extremely resistant to corrosion, making it the perfect choice for use in unforgiving outdoor environments where moisture and humidity are a concern. Not every farmer has the luxury of undercover storage for all their cultivation machinery…

Enhanced performance

Tungsten carbide agricultural wearing parts can improve the performance of your equipment by providing a more efficient and precise operation. On a wearing part that has no tungsten carbide applied, edges of the part will wear and become more likely to smear and compress soil rather than effectively running through it. This creates a negative effect on crop emergence and essential root growth, making a barrier for growth, water and air movement. Using a tungsten carbide part will loosen soil, relieving compaction and giving adequate drainage.

Any Drawbacks ?

There really isn’t anything to mention here apart from the obvious factor of cost. Tungsten wearing parts will have a higher upfront cost compared to regular wearing parts. However, you ultimately get what you pay for and the increased lifespan and durability of tungsten parts will be a cost-effective solution in the long term.
