heat losses, cupola, refractory, furnace, efficiency.


The efficiency of any foundry largely depends on the efficiency of the melting process, This in turn depend on the maximum utilization of heat generated in the furnace by reducing heat losses. This paper discuss the various forms of heat losses in a cupola furnace,, reasons for the losses and ways to reduce it. Minimized heat loss will reduce losses in melting, reduce slag formation and increase the combustion efficiency of coke and overall productivity and improve the quality and Mechanical properties of cast iron using Cupola.
