Canfield-Svanidze Sets

Canfield-Svanidze Crucibles

Canfield - Svanidze Crucible Sets (CSCS) are a modification of the Canfield Crucible Sets (CCS). In addition to the step-edge-frit-disc, which serves to separate liquid from solid, CSCS features threads on the crucible and the frit, which help to better contain both liquid and vapor during the synthesis and decanting processes. Much like CCS, the CSCS is used as the main container during synthesis – it can be placed inside amorphous silica, tantalum, or niobium tubes. Usage of CSCS is advantageous for growths where elements with high vapor pressure are used or when more complete containment of the decanted liquid is needed.
