What Causes Steel Corrosion?

Corrosion of Steel

One of the greatest drawbacks and inherent danger of using steel is the fact that it corrodes. When steel corrodes, it becomes weaker and structurally unsound. (more…)

Industrial Steel Supply – Service is the Key to Success

In any business, including the steel business, customer service will ultimately determine your success. Just like the restaurant business, if the waiter is not attentive or responsive to your requests, and it takes forever to get a drink or food, you probably will not return, no matter how great the food is.

What is a Steel Mesh Grizzly Screen?

A steel mesh 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.

How Quenching and Tempering Makes ENDURA a Superior Steel

In order to make steel harder, a common treatment is to Quench and Temper, a process that involves heating, rapid cooling, and re-heating the steel. However, while Quench and Temper is common, it is ENDURA’s unique take on this process that gives it its TRIP EFFECT properties.

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…)
