Features and uses of different types of crucibles

Crucibles are specialized containers for melting metallic materials at very high temperatures. The molten material is cast into new objects or used to make new alloys (different metals combined in specific proportions). Since crucibles are used to melt materials at high temperatures, the material used to make the crucible must have a higher melting point […]
