High alumina, silicon carbide, nitride bonded silicon carbide and fused silica formulations, for the most demanding metals applications.
Our fired refractory crucibles, distribution boxes, hot top boxes, tubes, nozzles and shapes are made using high alumina, silicon carbide, nitride bonded silicon carbide and fused silica formulations. These materials allow us to engineer the optimum solution for reliability and durability, even under the most arduous conditions.
Our thixotropic casting manufacturing process allows for crucibles and shapes to be made to precise customer specifications. Thixotropic casting uses a dispersion agent, which allows the mix to flow when vibrated without requiring high water content. These manufacturing techniques, combined with precisely controlled firing and 100% product inspection, produce high-quality components suited to the most arduous of high temperature environments. Our crucibles are available in a range of sizes from 136 kg up to 2.7 mt (300 lb – 2000 lbs).
Benefits of our fired refractories solutions are:
Our Cerox, Valcor and Morsil products are typically used in these melting applications:
