Some industries using crucibles for melting require methods of cleaning the crucibles possibly after several cycles of use.

Foundry Projects Ltd provide a semi-automatic system where the crucible is located into a tilting cradle which secures the crucible and tips it through 90˚.

The crucible then continuously rotates slowly and at the same time a hydraulic operated scraping arm goes into the crucible at high level until reaching the base of the ladle and lowers so scraping the base of the ladle. The arm then retracts to scrape the crucible sides and drag the dross into a skip at the front.

This operation is repeated several times until the desired objective is reached to remove the dross.
