KING-CARB Silicon Carbide and TERCOD Clay Graphite Crucibles and Protection Tubes
Vesuvius Foundry offers a Silicon Carbide and Clay Graphite Crucibles, Refractory Cements, Custom Silicon Carbide, Fused Silica Shapes and Thermocouple Protection Tubes.
KING-CARB crucibles are isostatically pressed carbon bonded silicon carbide, providing excellent thermal conductivity and wear resistance to non-ferrous metals. They are designed for electric resistance, induction and fuel fired applications
TERCOD crucibles feature a carbon bonded silicon carbide composition. They have been the “industry standard” for silicon carbide crucibles since 1917. These spun crucibles have a low coefficient of thermal expansion and will provide excellent resistance to thermal shock.
Thermal Ceramics Pre-Fired Spouts and Crucibles
Thermal Ceramics is well known for its high temperature products that have a variety of applications. They offer high alumina crucibles that range of standard sizes up to 2,250 lbs steel capacity; specials up to 5,600 lbs steel capacity. Their Pre-Fired Spouts offer an excellent resistance against thermal shock and cycling.
Quick change-out time, consistent flow/pour characteristics, and are available in 66% to 95% alumina contents.
The Joy-Mark CF series of insulating riser sleeves and CFX series of exothermic riser sleeves
provide the foundry with a reliable cost effective approach for optimizing feeding efficiency, improving
quality, and lowering cost. Stringent manufacturing procedures and quality control standards ensure
that your risering needs will be met on a continual basis.
Joy-Mark CF insulating and CFX exothermic riser sleeves offer the following advantages over
ordinary sand risers:
• Reduction of heat loss allowing smaller risers to be used
• Improved casting yield
• Reduction of melting and cleaning room costs
• Reduction of piping and shrinkage
• Maintain integrity – will not contaminate sand system
• Improved soundness of castings
• Light weight yet strong compositions to withstand molding
• Low smoke and fumes
• Reduction of remelt volumes
• Easily modified to create special feeding effects while
maintaining thermal performance
Ceramic Fiber Compositions
Joy-Mark offers a variety of different ceramic fiber sleeve compositions. The available selection
allows the foundry to optimize performance and minimize cost for their specific application.
