Transfer Crucible and Ladle Lids

TransferLadleLids TransferLadleLidOpen


Transport crucibles can be made with or without lids. Lidded transport crucibles are typically preferred to unlidded transport crucibles due to the additional safety and efficiency gained through the use of a lid. Lids can prevent minor molten aluminium splashes from exiting the crucible during the fork lift transport process. In addition, transport crucibles with open tops lose temperature quickly due to radiation at the top surface. Lids minimize losses by capturing the radiation, retaining the heat in the transport crucible.
