Smelting Crucibles

Morgan Salamander Excel & Himelt Crucibles

EXCEL and HIMELT are high quality carbon-bonded silicon carbide crucibles manufactured using the latest roller-forming techniques and are designed to cater for a range of non-ferrous melting applications.



EXCEL: Intended for aluminium melting in oil-fired furnaces, melting copper-based alloys in gas and oil-fired furnaces, melting precious metals and non-ferrous alloys in low to medium frequency induction furnaces.

HIMELT: Provides enhanced performance in those applications where more arduous service conditions exist.



EXCEL: 850—1250ºC (1562—2280ºF)

HIMELT: 1000—1400ºC (1830—2550ºF)




• Fast melting speed through high consistent thermal conductivity.

• Excellent thermal shock resistance.

• High resistance to oxidation.

• Good erosion resistance.

• Good resistance to corrosive attack by chemical treatment agents.
