The Skull Melting technology has several advantages. Firstly, it is considered the best one to reach a high chemical homogeneity, due to the fact that the metal under melting is mixed for a long time inside a crucible.
As a second advantage, Skull Melting is a cold hearth technology that removes both low (hard alpha) and high density inclusions. It is the best method to produce clean titanium.
A third advantage is that Skull Melting technology is economical: all the titanium melting technologies melt a mix of titanium sponge and recycled titanium material but the Skull Melting technology allows to use a higher quantity of recycled scrap.
