Salamander Super

Salamander® Super is a high quality ceramic bonded clay graphite crucible range manufactured by plastic forming techniques.


Salamander® Super crucibles are used to provide consistent performance in fuel-fired furnaces and medium/high frequency induction furnaces. The smaller sizes are typically used to melt precious metals, while larger sizes can be used for some ferrous alloys such as grey iron as well as to melt non-ferrous alloys.
