  • Refractory moulds
  • Crucibles

Single use crucible

Single use crucible for THERMIT® welds

Benefits

  • Optimization of operational procedures due to less weight and easier handling compared with long-life crucible
  • Applicable for all rail profiles and grades
  • Crucibles can be used for the disposal of welding residues after welding is completed
  • Reduced likelihood of welding errors because – unlike with long-life crucibles – there is no need to dry and to prepare the crucible before use

Features

  • Single use
  • The base incorporates a device for automatic tapping
  • Charged or uncharged available
  • Standard and wide-gap welds possible
  • Use for work in tunnels with appropriate filter attachment
  • Portion and crucible lining are protected against humidity

Long-life crucible

Multiple-use crucible for Thermit® welds

  • Years of success with this proven long-life crucible system
  • Universally applicable, as all portion sizes can be welded
  • All components of the long-life crucible system can be ordered separately
  • Highly economical thanks to multiple use

Features

  • Crucible needs to be cleaned after an average of 15 castings
  • Up to 25 castings can be performed with one lining before this has to be replaced (depending on the portion size used / welding process)
