Various zones of cupola    

(i)            Well or crucible

(ii)          Tuyer zone

(iii)         Combustion zone

(iv)         Reducing zone

(v)          Melting zone

(vi)         Preheating zone

Advantage of a cupola

(i)            Its continuous operation

(ii)           Low cost of operation

(iii)          Easy to operate.

(iv)          Composition of the melt can be controlled.

(v)           Temperature of the melt can be controlled.
