MATERIAL SPECIFIC PROCEDURES

INSPECT THE MATERIAL:

1. Read over any accompanying paperwork and confirm description..

2. Make written notes of contaminants that may cause excessive melt loss, examples are: oil, stones, paper, moisture. etc.

3. Whenever possible remove any non-precious contaminants before charging and hold aside for review by customer or representative.

MELT PROCEDURE:

  1. Load material into crucible and turn on power supply, bring power up to a level that will melt the metal quickly without causing it to spit.
  2. Raise melt temperature enough to liquefy all elements in the crucible, melting point.

SAMPLING:

  1. When all metals in the crucible are uniformly liquid and homogenous the melt is ready to be sampled.
  2. Stir the molten metal well to insure it is thoroughly homogenized.
  3. Dip pin sample into the molten metal.
  4. Inspect sample quality; the lab needs at least 3 grams of good quality sample to complete their analysis.

CASTING:

  1. After acceptable samples have been produced immediately the molten metal is poured into graphite mold.

COMPLETION:

  1. Wait at least 5minutes before removing bar (s) from mold.
  2. Use a needle-gun to remove any slag on the bar.
