  • 232 - SiC XO : Resin-bonded isopressed silicon carbide crucibles for melting light and heavy metals in fuel furnaces, for melting heavy metals in electric resistance furnaces and for waste recycling.

Instructions for use

  • Ceramic crucibles must be left empty at their working temperature.

  • Tools must be designed so as not to damage or grip the crucible without a pressure point.

  • Do not push materials into the crucible.

  • If possible, bars and large metal parts should be preheated and carefully placed in the crucible using the pliers. Do not drop metal parts into the crucible.

  • The crucible must be emptied at the end of the day. Do not leave metal waste to cool in the crucible.

  • Ensure the crucible is always filled.

  • If using chemical melting preparations, ensure these products never come into direct contact with the crucible. The action time of these products should be reduced as much as possible.

  • If possible, molten metal should be used immediately once it has reached the desired temperature.

  • Empty the waste from the crucible every day while it is still hot. Clean it thoroughly. Good maintenance increases the life of the crucible. Always use the appropriate tools.
