The Importance of Quality Control in Tungsten Alloy Manufacturing

The value of good engineering resides not only in the practical use of technological know-how but also in the measurement of product quality and ongoing process improvement. A particular and dependable production process as well as significant quality control procedures are required to manufacture alloys with high characteristics and quality.   In the manufacture of tungsten […]

Is Tungsten Magnetic?

Tungsten, frequently known as wolfram, is a chemical element with atomic number 74 with the symbol W. It’s an uncommon metal only available in nature as a compound with different metals.  Notwithstanding its low defenselessness to magnetism, tungsten heavy alloy’s other crucial properties incorporate reactivity, malleability, and conductivity. Many people have this question is tungsten […]

Tungsten Shot Density 18g/cc

No Bluff! At Agescan, when we say our Tungsten Super Shot (TSS’s) density is 18g/cc, we really mean it!! Although the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standard gives us the tungsten density allowance with the range from 17.75 – 18.35g/cc, our strict production process generates better controlled up-range density results, thus, providing more […]

Tungsten Shielding in the Applications of Nuclear Industry and Medicine

Today, there is a huge focus on the widespread prevalence of nuclear medicine applications. There are some of the best and most sophisticated components (engineered) available which allow for imaging of molecules and nuclear medicines for the purpose of absorbing the gamma X-rays and gamma radiations, including tungsten radiation shielding. This eventually helps in a […]
