Carbon-bonded silicon carbide and clay-bonded graphite crucibles are used in non-ferrous induction melting furnaces. Silicon carbide crucibles especially have encountered premature failure when used at high power densities and operating frequencies. This is thought to be related to their non-uniform properties. To gain a more thorough understanding of the problem, an equivalent circuit analysis has been applied to the composite load of crucible and metal charge.
