Xtralloy’s high alloy content and superior quality mean longer wear life where it matters most.
Field proven since 1988
Columbia Steel’s 24% manganese steel, Xtralloy®, became a production alloy in 1988 and has been widely accepted by customers in aggregate production and ore processing as a way to reduce downtime costs.
Xtralloy is significantly higher in carbon and manganese content than conventional Hadfield’s manganese steel, resulting in excellent wear resistance with reliability. The extra effort and skill required to manufacture it have proven worthwhile, as Xtralloy continues to be the crusher operators’ premium wear material of choice.
Solid performance data
Starting in 1989, we began publishing Xtralloy progress reports, noting significant wear life increases over previous crusher parts of various other alloys and origins. The reliability of Columbia Steel’s Xtralloy parts has always been excellent.
Based on data and comments provided by our customers worldwide, Xtralloy offers the following benefits in many crushing applications:
- Longer wear life
- Savings in labor, backing material and downtime
- Crusher production maintained throughout liner life
- Lower cost per ton of material crushed
Xtralloy shows its best performance improvements when crushing tough materials. Since 1988, our Product Engineers have gained extensive experience with alloy applications in all types of crushing conditions, so they are able to estimate Xtralloy performance. Like no other alloy on the market, Xtralloy uniquely meets the need for heavy-duty premium manganese steel crusher wear parts. We can also improve the wear life ratios of opposing wear parts by using Xtralloy and standard manganese alloys.
