Controlling Conditions for Cupola Melting

Controlling Conditions for Cupola Melting

Iron oxide threatens all iron-melting processes. In cupola melting, much greater amounts of iron oxide are produced during the normal melt cycle than are produced in electric furnace melting. This makes iron oxide’s effect much more pronounced in cupola melting. In EF melting, 20%-30% oxidation loss is the extreme of losses encountered. In cupola melting, […]
