Crucible tongs are steel tools used to lift a hot crucible from a furnace. "Front Loading" tongs are used to remove crucibles from a furnace horizontally (opens like a home oven).
Non-Latching Tongs do not have a latching bar. A user adjustable stop is provided that limits the amount of clamping force applied to the crucible.
These tongs are custom made to fit a #4B Bilge Shape crucible, either clay graphite bilge shape or silicon carbide bilge shape. Since these tongs are custom made for these specific type and size of crucible they are not returnable. Please allow 3 weeks for delivery.
