If you melt metal or hold a molten bath, chances are your operation is unique. Your particular combination of furnaces, alloys, working practices, metallurgical treatments, pouring arrangements and end products are not likely to be duplicated at any other facility. So choosing a crucible that will provide maximum performance for your operation is an individualized and complex task.
This article is designed to serve as a guide for selecting the optimal crucible for your operation. It explains the relationship between metal melting/holding operations and specific crucible characteristics. It provides support for but does not replace the need for metal melters and crucible suppliers to work closely together in the crucible selection process.
Morgan Advanced Materials has published a white paper identifying current trends in primary and secondary aluminium processing, focusing on technology solutions for the global aluminium processing sector.
The consumption of energy is of key importance to the metal casting industry, with most energy expenditure – 55 per cent - occurring during the melting process. However, until now it has been difficult to find data relating to energy use and crucibles, and so to assess the cost of crucible ownership in a way that includes energy savings. That situation has now changed, with a comparative study revealing that Morgan Advanced Materials' Salamander® silicon carbide (SiC) crucible performs particularly well in terms of energy consumption. Furthermore, changes made to the crucible in light of the study mean that the resultant energy-optimised Salamander® SiC may offer very considerable savings to foundries, through its increased energy transfer capability.
Morgan Advanced Materials has launched a new range of stopper rods (monoblock stopper for cast iron applications).
Morgan Advanced Materials has made two new additions to its extensive range of crucible coatings for the foundry sector.
