Goodfellow Ceramic and Glass Division offers alumina crucibles in sizes ranging from 0.03ml to multi-litre capacity and with tolerances to suit specific customer applications.
In addition to standard shapes – conical, cylindrical, cup, rectangular, round, shallow and tapered – the company can supply crucibles made to customer drawings. Depending on the size, tolerance and number of pieces required, alumina crucibles can be made by pressing, slip casting or injection moulding.
Alumina crucibles represent a cost-effective alternative to certain other materials when heat resistance and corrosion resistance are essential. Specifically, alumina offers:
- Maximum operating temperature of approximately 1700 degrees Celsius
- Good strength and hardness
- Chemical stability
- Electrical insulation
When different end-use characteristics are desired, Goodfellow is able to supply crucibles made from other materials. These materials include the metals tantalum and zirconium and ceramics including boron nitride, magnesia, quartz, silicon carbide, titanium diboride, vitreous carbon and zirconia.
