Crucible type melting furnaces are suitable for HPDC / GDC shops where production rates are very low or metal quality is extremely crucial and only electric melting is required. Being Batch type indirectly heated furnaces, the furnaces have comparatively higher energy consumption. Recurring cost of CRUCIBLE is also one of the concern since it drastically affects production in case of sudden failure.
