Understanding ENDURA Steel: Tensile vs Yield Strength
If you’ve read our blogs on metals and alloys—particularly as they relate to ENDURA steel—you’ve probably heard the team from Titus Steel talking about tensile strength and yield strength. For those who are new to the steel game, we’re going to take a deep dive to explain what they mean. (more…)
What is a Steel Grizzly Screen?
A steel grizzly screen (sometimes referred to as a grizzly deck, a grizzly scalper, or a grizzly feeder) is a rugged heavy-duty type of screen that is placed just before the first crusher in a mine or quarry. It “sizes” the rocks that have been blasted from the mine or quarry so that the crushing machine (often a jaw crusher or cone crusher) is not fed oversized rocks it cannot handle or undersized “fines” which will slow production.

What Are Our Industrial Steels Made From?
Making industrial steel is like baking a cake: various ingredients are mixed together according to a recipe and then baked at temperature. When it comes to industrial steel supply, the ingredients are elements found in the earth such as carbon, iron, and manganese—and, much like making a cake, changing the recipe can drastically change the end product.

Common Questions About High Manganese Steel (Manganal)
High Manganese Steel (Manganal) is perhaps one of the most unique and exceptional types of specialized steel on the market. However, if you mention ‘Manganese’ to anyone outside of the world of metallurgy, you’ll likely be met with a blank stare.
To help you to understand just how exceptional our High Manganese steel (Manganal) is, we have assembled a list of the most common questions that customers tend to ask:
The Language of Strength: Understanding the Mechanical Properties of Steel
When it comes to steel, the mechanical properties of the grade of steel can often mean the difference between a long, efficient life in the most abrasive and wear-intensive applications, and frequent or even catastrophic failure. Understanding these properties is absolutely essential when selecting the best grade of abrasive-resistant steel for your application. Unfortunately, these mechanical properties are very specific, and their exact metallurgical definitions are not widely known outside of metallurgy. (more…)
ENDURA, the only Patented Wear Resistant Steel
Wear Resistant Steels were developed to retard or slow down the destruction of mild steels, providing longer life, less downtime and maintenance of equipment that experiences wear from impact and/or sliding abrasion. For the most part, this was and still is accomplished by making the steels harder. But the harder the steel, the more brittle it becomes and it is less easy to machine or form into parts, shoots, conveyors, buckets, screens etc. (more…)
Why You Need to Understand the Standards for Wear Steels and Armor Plates
World War II brought about many products that found their way into common use, from the transistor to the microwave. One advancement was the development of low hardness Quenched & Tempered (Q&T) structural steels. These steels were developed based on the technology used to make Q&T armor plate. (more…)
Manganese Alloy: Steel That Stands Where Other Alloy Steels Fail
Of all the steel alloys out there, Manganese is perhaps one of the most unique—and interesting—options on the market. It’s non-magnetic despite its high iron-content, and it actually hardens under conditions whereas other alloys would shear or wear. In this article, we’ll give you a little insight into what Manganese Steel Alloy is, where it comes from, and why it’s so incredible. (more…)
