10ml Platinum Crucible

« Return to Crucibles and Lids

Capacity
Nominal Tank Capacity: 10ml
Product Code
850
Description
Laboratory Platinum Crucibles are durable, have high resistance to chemical corrosion and able to cope with elevated temperatures up to 1200°C.

Dimensions - guide
  • Diameter = 26mm.

  • Nominal capacity 10ml


  • Supplied in singles, natural finish.

    The above listing is a guide on resistance or otherwise of platinum crucibles, it’s not an exhaustive guide. Therefore we recommend any new or unknown compounds, heated for first time in your laboratory, a test is undertaken with a proven/old platinum crucible in first instance.

    Lids are available.

    Since this is a rare metal its subject to daily exchange and metal price fluctuations, please enquire at latest prices.
Heating/Cooling Information
Platinum crucibles are soft at room temperature, deformation increases between 700°C - 1000°C as the temperature increases.

Recommended maximum process temperature 1200°C.

During heating and cooling platinum crucibles only handle or touch with either platinum tipped or ceramic coated instruments/surfaces.
Notes
Platinum crucibles can become damaged, decay or fail:


  • with low melting point metals such as tin, antimony and bismuth.

  • using unknown compounds, heated for first time.

  • heating in presence of carbon yellow flame - always use oxygen rich oxidising flame.

  • when associated with following elements, silicone, lead, antimony and phosphorus, which may be airborne or nearby during heating.

  • with sulphur.

  • there are evaporation losses of platinum, even at room temperature a film of platinum oxide builds up, elevated temperatures oxidisation accelerates evaporating in use.

  • unnecessarily heating crucibles for long periods of time since this coarsens the grain structure leading to cracking and embrittlement.

  • when heated in furnaces the ceramic floor of the furnace must be free of contaminates and airborne contamination.

  • if heating a number in furnaces keep them apart to avoid fusing together.

  • placing near or directly on heating elements within furnaces.

  • handled with metallic objects such as tongs, tripods, meshes etc which are themselves not platinum.




Cleaning

  • Boil in solvent.
