High performance, multi-use crucibles
serve for determination of Precious Metals (PM): Au, Ag, and Platinum
Group Metals (PGM): Pt, Pd, Ir, Rh, Ru, Os by Fire Assay / Cupellation method (aka "Docimasy").
Crucibles are used to "flux-melt"
under high temp. reducing conditions following kinds of samples:
● Exploration ores from drill cores / trenching /
grabbing by gold mines and Geological Labs.
● Mineral concentrates and electrolytic slimes processed by copper smelters.
● Scraps & Residues (ashes)
from sweeps / filings / lemel / catalysts / recycled by PM
♦ Universal Range : For all Precious Metals Assay Laboratories
Given the diversity of furnaces/
handling systems existing in laboratories worldwide, Universal Range
was developed to suit most Assayers jobs. Capacities: from 1 to 2-Ό assay-tons: (A. T.) (+).
Designed to provide erosion and
cracking resistance under harsh working conditions, Universal Range
pots yield longer life, faster fusion, constant melting speed and
resistance to thermal shock.
A carefully blended mix of fireclays
and additives ensures a product of dense body to minimize absorption losses while retaining the
ability to resist flux (litharge) penetration, erosion and cracking
under all furnace working conditions, flux compositions and lead (Pb) or nickel
sulfide (NiS) Precious Metal collection methods.
