Crucibles & Babbitt Ingots

3_crucibles

A crucible is a heat-resistant container in which materials can be heated/melted at very high temperatures in a furnace.

The use of crucibles to manufacture Crucible steel, introduced in England in the eighteenth century, was an important part of the Industrial Revolution. Today metalworkers around the world use them in a variety of projects. 

Our ingots are sold in 6-7 lb bars and are used for various metalcasting purposes from jewelry, belt buckles to babbitt for making bearings. 

Crucibles - Graphite

Crucibles - Silicon Carbide

The Silicon Carbide crucible must be used if working with silver because the carbon in our other crucibles will react with and spoil the silver.
