Arc-melterThe 2DCC Arc Melter with maximum temperatures of 3100 oC max is placed inside the glovebox that is being utilized for arc-melt air-sensitive, high melting point alloy. By tilting the tungsten electrode, it allows for a variety of small metal/alloy smelting in sequence on the water-cooled copper hearth with six cavities. This Arc Melter is also served as arc welder to seal sample inside metallic tube for later use in the high-temperature (>1200 oC) single crystal growth.
