BORON NITRIDE LABORATORY CRUCIBLES

MYCROSINT® BORON NITRIDE (BN) LABORATORY CRUCIBLES

Continuous monitoring and analysis of metallurgical processes requires precise and fail-proof instrumentation and evaluation methods. To ensure a product of constant quality and minimize rejects, it is essential to determine the melt purity by analyzing samples.

Analysis crucibles of ESK’s MYCROSINT® boron nitride ceramic are the preferred materials for analysis of almost all molten metals. The fact that they are not wetted, and their low chemical reactivity almost entirely eliminates contamination of the material under analysis.

Because MYCROSINT® materials feature excellent thermal shock resistance, the sample material can usually be taken directly from the melt.
