                                                  TOP OF PAGE

1.   Do I really need to use a pipe screen?

A:  This is a matter of personal choice.
      Before Titan Smokescreen there were benefits AND drawbacks to the use of pipe screens. The benefits include minimal smoking material loss, allows the pipe hole to remain open and not “clog” due to residue (commonly called “dottie” by tobacco pipe smokers), no inhaling of hot smoking material.
     The main drawback was Health & Safety-
     And, of course, ordinary pipe screens don't last very long! They're cheap but  the average user has to replace their pipe screen every 3-5 days - that really adds up over a year; not to mention the constant time & energy.
     Titan Smokescreen has been produced specifically to eliminate the drawbacks, making pipe screen use both Healthy Safe and Hassle Free.
2.   What causes the holes in my screen? What about the missing pieces?
A:  This is generally caused by overheating of the tiny gauge wire used in ordinary (brass/steel) pipe screens.
     Unfortunately, with ordinary pipe screens, those “missing” pieces of metal screen end up in your lungs! NOT with a Titan Smokescreen!
      Titan Smokescreen is manufactured of only the highest quality
High Temperature Stainless Steel & made with a larger diameter wire-
the higher melting point of the material itself and the larger wire diameter affect how long your Titan Smokescreen will last vs. ordinary pipe screens.

3.   How long can I use my Titan Smokescreen before I have to replace it?
A:  Titan Smokescreen longevity depends mainly on personal use levels.
      However, all metal will eventually breakdown when subjected to long
periods of high temperature.
      The first thing you can do to extend the life of your Titan Smokescreen is to review the “Care & Feeding of My Titan Smokescreen” section below and follow the instructions.
      In general, it is recommended that you replace your Titan Smokescreen every 3-6 months; depending on your personal level of use. This will assure that you are always enjoying the Safest possible smoke.
      Never allow holes to form in your Titan Smokescreen, if you do observe holes forming immediately replace it.

4.   How do I clean my Titan Smokescreen? and how often?
A:   Once again, this depends on your personal use levels; but, generally,
the cleaner the better. Simply follow the instructions in the
“Care & Feeding of My Titan Smokescreen” section to assure that you
always get the best out of your Titan Smokescreen.

5.   What is the right Titan Smokescreen for me?
A:  Titan Smokescreen currently comes in (3) sizes -
                      5/8”  - (3)/ Designer Tin (HTS50)
                      3/4”  - (3)/ Designer Tin (HTS75)
VapeScreen -   1"   - (2)/ Designer Tin (HTS100)             
and the Multipack (HTSMP) which includes (3)5/8” &  (2)3/4”
      Your Titan Smokescreen should fit “snuggly” into the bottom of your metal/wood pipe without excessive edge folding; most pipes are made to accommodate one of the (2) smaller sizes - while the 1" VapeScreen is specifically designed to work in vaporizers. Regardless of your "device",
Titan Smokescreen is THE BEST alternative for pipe screen use.
      Glass pipes are a bit trickier; typically round bowl shape and the slickness of glass reduce grip causing your Titan Smokescreen to move around. To combat this, allow a small amount of “residue” to remain in your bowl at all times. Simply use your finger to gently press your Titan Smokescreen into the bowl. If the bowl is too deep or oddly shaped for your finger, use the end of a plastic pen cap or similar - BUT BE GENTLE.

      Likewise, with vaporizers - BE GENTLE when you push the new screen into the neck; use something like a long fireplace matchstick.

NEVER use metal objects, knives or coat hangers to fit (or clean) your Titan Smokescreen.

6.   Is my Titan Smokescreen safe for water-pipes and vaporizers?
A:  Yes. Although all metals are subject to corrosion, your Titan Smokescreen has THE HIGHESTcorrosion resistance” level available! that means it can better resist the affects of water evaporation, vaporizing or atomizing.

      Vaporizers-Titan Smokescreen is ideal for vape users! As they know, it's a real pain to replace the screen in most models; so the longer your pipe screen lasts the better. The Titan VapeScreen is designed to last longer than any other.

ALL sizes of Titan Smokescreen are ideal for vaporizers/pens/etc...  and        ALL Titan Smokescreens are designed to the same High Exacting Standards.

7.   What is High Temperature Stainless Steel and why should I use it instead of regular steel or brass?
A:  As discussed earlier, ordinary pipe screens are made of extremely fine wire in order to cut costs. This wire also has a relatively low melting point (the temperature at which heat begins to breakdown the molecular bonds of the metal).
      A Titan Smokescreen is made of wire that has a considerably higher “melting point”, which means it can take more heat for longer periods.
      Additionally, the “gauge” or diameter of the wire used to create a
Titan Smokescreen is considerably larger than ordinary pipe screens - again, allowing the Titan Smokescreen to handle higher temps for longer.
      This is most beneficial for vaporizer users and those who use "torch" lighters.
      A Titan Smokescreen also dissipates heat faster than ordinary pipe screens, getting rid of the heat faster reduces molecular breakdown.
Titan Smokescreen and VapeScreen are made from the highest quality level High temperature Stainless Steel available. This all means that you get a pipe screen that lasts longer and is safer to use. 
8.   Why is My Titan Smokescreen so stiff?
A:   A Titan Smokescreen is stiffer than ordinary pipe screens because they're made from a stronger material, larger wire and a closer weave.           You can see and feel the difference; and Trust us, it softens with use!
9.   Is Titan Smokescreen more expensive than ordinary pipe screens?
A:  Yes, Titan Smokescreen is more expensive than ordinary pipe screens; but our studies show that, when you average your cost of replacement
for ordinary pipe screens, a Titan Smokescreen will cost you
the same or even less.
Besides, how can you put a price on your Health/Safety?
Remember the old saying-”You get what you pay for!”?      
It's true with Titan Smokescreen.

   "Care and Feeding of My Titan Smokescreen"
                                               TOP OF PAGE
Simplicity; extending the life of your Titan Smokescreen doesn't require that you do anything extraordinary. Follow the simple instructions below, clean your Titan Smokescreen when you normally clean your pipe and always feed your pipe the best you can afford - starting with a       Titan Smokescreen.
1.     Keep your TS clean. Cleaner is always better.
        Use rubbing alcohol , soft toothbrush and hot water.
        NEVER use household cleaners or harsh chemicals.
2.     NEVER “burn” your TS even to “clean” it.
        Excessive overheating is the #1 cause of damage.

3.     NEVER use metal objects (like knives) on your TS.
        NEVER “scrape” your TS to clean it.

4.     NEVER “wiggle” clean your TS. Manipulating your
        pipe screen back/forth loosens the weave and weakens it.

5.     Don’t “overpack” your pipe. This restricts airflow and
        can create excessive heat which can cause damage .

6.     Replace when necessary or as recommended.

7.     Always feed your pipe the best you can afford -starting with a
      Titan Smokescreen.
