Cupola, Other Engineering

The cupola is the most widely used furnace in the foundry for melting ferrous and non ferrous metals and alloys.

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.

Other Foundry Furnaces

(i)            Crucible or Pot furnaces
