Water quench from 1800°C.

Crucible dropping.

The quench sequence is:
1) Open the bottom hatch
2) Drop the bottom insulation stack (that allowed 1600 C operation) into sand: this is the first white hot blur
3) Place the water bath (green) under the furnace
4) Drop the platinum (Pt) crucible by releasing the Pt wire at the top that it was hanging from: the second white hot blur

(The video is in slow motion. The crucible drops at 0:40.)
