Our transport crucibles are mechanically scraped clean while hot in the crucible-cleaning station. The crucible rotates while the cleaning tool is guided along the crucible wall.
Advantages over conventional systems:
Hot-cleaning of crucibles saves time and money compared to conventional systems, as time lost while waiting for the crucible to cool down or heat up again is kept to a minimum. Apart from that, the low pressure applied by the cleaning tool preserves the refractory lining’s integrity.
The crucible-cleaning station is designed for use on our cruicibles, but the turning mechanism support can be adjusted to the crucible feet you normally use.
