Anti-wear tungsten carbide recycling inserts and waste treatment
In shredders or mills for waste treatment and recycling, hard metal knife and anti-wear inserts are increasingly used for their high wear resistance.
Depending on the specific characteristics of the material to be recycled: hardness, physical or chemical resistance, suitable grades and compositions are chosen.
An example can be found in grinding mills where the rotor is equipped with a series of hard metal inserts that grind the scrap with the aid of a counter blade. These hard metal inserts allow longer tool life while reducing replacement time.
