Thermal Analysis Cups
The QuiK-Cup thermal analysis cup measures the cooling curve and phase changes of molten cast iron and ductile iron. In addition, the thermal analysis cup measures the carbon equivalent, carbon, and silicon of your iron.
The QuiK-Cup thermal analysis cup is designed with a highly accurate type K thermocouple which measures the liquidus temperature and the eutectic temperature as the iron solidifies. The carbon equivalent is calculated from the carbon and silicon measurements taken from the Quik-Cup. The QCTE QuiK-Cup comes with a tellurium “blob” at the bottom of the thermal analysis cup, allowing it to measure the liquidus and white eutectic temperatures of both hypo and hyper eutectic iron, providing very accurate CE, C & Si calculations. The controlled release of the tellurium into the solution guarantees 100% white solidification. No other design offers this controlled infusion of tellurium. The QSN QuiK-Cup comes without the tellurium blob and is used to measure the grey eutectic cooling curve points.
