The K1 Prime is pre-loaded with various fusion methods that can be used as is, or can be customized. All fusion methods can be saved, renamed, deleted or copied, just like computer files. Only the pre-set methods are protected to avoid accidental overwriting.
A standard platinum crucible is loaded with a few grams of powdered sample, an appropriate flux and often other agents. The crucible is inserted into the crucible heater and locked by the heat reflector.
A platinum mold in a special holder is then installed in the mold heater.
When the user instructs the K1 Prime to launch the fusion, electricity heats the crucible element, and all heating steps are automatically started in sequence. Temperature is constantly monitored and displayed.
The tilting motion of the crucible heater continuously mixes the flux with the sample.
