Carbon Cups

Rapid molten thermal analysis in ferrous and non-ferrous foundries

Series of expendable cartridges that determine %CE, %C, and % Si in gray, ductile and malleable irons by the thermal analisys method when used with TemCar or other similar instruments.

TheCup assures accurate measurement and excellent reproducibility with every cartridge you use.

  • Tellurium plug on the type T cartridge mixes completely with the molten iron sample, helping the formation of white iron on solidification.
  • Precise shape of cartridge and accurate positioning of thermocouple junction provide accurate, reproducible cooling curves with well defined arrest points.
  • Special high thermal shock-resistant mould prevents "leaking".
  • Gate on base of cartridge permits simple visual orientation with plug.
  • Quartz tube insulates the thermocouple wire.
  • Accurate Chromel-Alumel thermocouple is calibrated to an accuracy of +/- 1°C at 1200°C (+/-0.01 CE).
  • Thermocouple wires form electrical contacts on underside of cartidge; sufficient interference between thermocouple wire and plug contacts, together with weight of sample, create shake-proof connection between cartridge and holder contacts.
  • Guide posts on plug align cartridges for proper electrical polarity; sturdy holder supports cartridge firmly.
  • Male contacts are made of thermocouple-grade Chromel and Alumel to prevent thermo-electric errors. Pins are easily replaceable to reduce maintenance time.
  • Plug is moulded from special high temperature material and protected from overflow by cartridge shape.
  • Environment friendly design
  • State of art automation to ensure high level of consistency.
