A Porcelain Crucible is a vessel, which can resist very high temperatures and is used for metal, glass, and pigment production. The apparatus is also useful in many laboratory processes. The use of porcelain in manufacturing crucibles is attributed to its high resistance to heat. The material can withstand high temperatures without melting or changing its shape.
The porcelain crucible is usually a cup-shaped container used in laboratories for heating purpose. The apparatus contain chemical compounds for heating at extremely high temperatures. Its size may vary as per the type of experimentation is to be undertaken. Small porcelain crucibles of 10�15 ml size are commonly used in gravimeter chemical analysis.
Porcelain crucibles come with lid covers relative to its size. Smaller crucibles and lids made of porcelain cost reasonably less when purchased in bulk for laboratories and may be disposed of after use.
