What Are Tungsten Heavy Alloy Military Spheres?
Tungsten heavy alloy sphere is widely used for military purposes. Tungsten heavy alloy military sphere is usually consisted of W-Ni- Fe or W-Ni- Cu or even W-Ni-Cu-Fe, some tungsten alloys also contain Co, Mo, Cr, etc. Tungsten heavy alloy military sphere can be manufactured in many sizes.
Advantages of Tungsten Heavy Alloy Military Sphere
Very dense, 1.7 times heavier than lead, tungsten is the ideal metal for military purposes. Tungsten is non-toxic and safe material, so tungsten heavy alloy military sphere is often used to replace lead. Owing to its great hardness and resistance to high temperature, tungsten heavy alloy sphere is increasingly adopted for military purposes and defense.
Applications of Tungsten Heavy Alloy Military Sphere
Tungsten heavy alloy military sphere can be also used as bullets or pellets in various military applications such as pellets used inside a shotgun shell. Lead shot and bullets have been banned in many areas because of the environmental concerns.
The main substitute materials are steel, bismuth and tungsten. The main advantages of tungsten heavy alloy military sphere that is used as pellet is that it is very dense, and very hard. The density allows the pellets to travel longer distances without loosing energy, while the hardness allows the pellets to keep their shape while being accelerated by the powder charge, which increases the muzzle velocity.
Tungsten heavy alloy spheres are also used in hand grenade, armor piercing projectile, prefabricated fragments. Tungsten heavy alloy military sphere is small in volume and very dense. Allowing them to penetrate armor and damage targets. Tungsten alloy has been used in missile weapons, armor piercing ammunition, tungsten alloy bullet, shrapnel head, core for armor-piercing bullet measurement, kinetic energy penetrators, armor and shells.
