                                                                                    Molten Metal Transfer Crucibles

            We engineer and fabricate crucibles for the transfer of
               molten metal over the road to meet customer requirements.
               Our design requires the crucible to be removed from the
               trailer only for cleaning.
               We also provide preheat and cleaning stations as well as
               metal filling and unloading stations.

               Tap blocks are placed to allow tapping of metal from either
              side of crucible to eliminate the need to rotate for location
              of differnet furnaces.

           crucible during manufacturing                   

                Crucibles are fabricated in accordance with  AISE and
               ASME boiler and pressure codes.
               All welds  are in accordance with the latest AWSD1.1
               specifications using E7018 wire and are ultrasonic, magnetic
               particle or dye penetrant inspected in accordance with ASME 
               Boiler and Pressure Vessel Codes.
               Crucibles are manufactured using ¼" plate, grade 515-65
               pressure vessel quality in sidewalls with reinforcing bands
               around the perimeter.
                                                                                   Refractory lining is 5" thick light weight 60% alumina castable
                                                                                   capable of 3000° F. Heat loss ia approx. 45.5° an hour.                                                                           
           Four locking lug plates are used to support crucibles and
           lock onto lugs provided on trailer, as used on cargo containers
           for oversea transport, for added protection from tipping.

           Lids are bolted and sealed to crucible using ASTM A-325
           structural steel bolts, nuts, and washers.
          Crucibles and stations can be engineered and manufactured
           to meet customer requirements.
