Crucibles are used for melting ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Crucibles vary in size ranging from holding a couple of ounces of metal to having a couple of thousand pounds. Crucibles can be used in an electrical resistance furnace, gas furnace, removable crucible furnace, tilting furnace, pit furnace, or induction furnace. Crucibles are made of either clay graphite or silicon carbide. Carpenter Brothers, Inc. supplies various sizes, shapes, and makeups of crucibles, ensuring we have the proper crucible for your process.
