How to Melt Tungsten

How to Melt Tungsten


You can melt tungsten with the right equipment.
Tungsten, also known as wolfram, is a chemical element with the symbol W and atomic number 74. Tungsten has the second highest melting point of all elements after carbon, with a temperature of 6,192 degrees Fahrenheit. This property makes it an ideal element to use in light bulbs. It also makes it dangerous to melt without a well-controlled workshop environment in which you use specialized heating equipment such as industrial welding torches and furnaces.

1. Prepare your work area. Clear the work space of anything that could ignite accidentally. Place the ore receptacle on a flat surface to collect the molten tungsten. Place the electrode holder over the receptacle and secure the piece of tungsten in its jaws.

2. Put on your safety equipment. At a minimum, shaded goggles are necessary as they will protect your eyes from fragments and the glow of the metal under the torch. Gloves and a work suit are optional to provide additional protection to your hands and body.

3. Start the torch. Allow it a few seconds to reach its optimal temperature. Place the tip of the torch's flame to the section of tungsten you want to melt. Watch it carefully so you do not melt or cut more than you intend to. When the tungsten under the torch pools, you can connect it to another metal or object to form a weld.
