Mettler crucibles list

Aluminium is safe up to 600 °C; the crucibles are disposable. Alumina pans should be used for higher temperatures; they are resuable. Platinum is very inert and very reusable.

Standard crucibles are

  • aluminium 40 μl 00026763 (100) or 51119870 plus 51119871 (400)
  • alumina 70 μl 00024123 (20)
  • platinum 70 μl 51119654 (4)
