This large stick is produced from pure quartz to be used with high temperatures. It is widely used for stirring molten metals in 100-oz and 1000-oz graphite/metal crucibles. Recommended for use with the following melting furnaces: R9D-100 & R9D-1000.
Dimensions of stick: 200 mm – length x 8 mm – diameter
Useful tips for beginners:
To clean molten metal from any impurities:
– dissolve this powder in hot tap water 194 F – 203 F (90 C – 95 C) – 500 gr per 1 Litre;
– deep a quartz stick into solution for 2-3 seconds;
– then using your stick carefully stir molten metal in the crucible and any non-metal impurities such dirt, dust and grease will “glue” around your stick.
– to clean your stick out just dip it into your cleaning solution once again and repeat whole process if necessary.
