Relevance of Using Cupola Furnace in Current Scenario of Technological Advancements

Authors(2) :-Huzaifa Fidvi, Dr. Akash Langde

The present study is done to ascertain the relevance of using old conventional cupola furnace in these modern times of technological advancements. Despite the fact of the big development of the technology of melting cast iron in electrical furnaces, an essential part of melting cast iron especially in Indian SME context is still done in cupolas. Various technical papers are reviewed. Conclusions are drawn from these findings to know the need and importance of using Cupola Furnace for melting Cast Iron in the present era of technological advancements.
