  Furnace - LoveToKnow 1911
Blast furnaces are, from the intimate contact between the burden to be smelted and the fuel, the least wasteful of heat; but their use supposes the possibility of obtaining fuel of good quality and free from sulphur or other substances likely to deteriorate the metal produced.
Furnaces of the second kind were first used in alkali works for the conversion of sulphate into carbonate of sodium in the process known as fl ash fusion, but have since been applied to other processes.
Furnaces of this kind may be used for melting cast iron or bronze in small quantities, and were employed by H. Sainte Claire Deville in experiments in the metallurgy of the platinum group of metals.

 AISI | How A Blast Furnace Works
The blast furnace is a huge, steel stack lined with refractory brick, where iron ore, coke and limestone are dumped into the top, and preheated air is blown into the bottom.
At the top of the furnace the materials are held until a "charge" usually consisting of some type of metallic (ore, pellets or sinter), coke and flux (limestone) have accumulated.
The materials are charged into the blast furnace through two stages of conical "bells" (5) which seal in the gases and distribute the raw materials evenly around the circumference of the furnace "throat".

 Is it time to replace the furnace? (Page 1 of 2)
For example, an AFUE of 80 means that 80 percent of the fuel used by the furnace warms your home, while the other 20 percent escapes as exhaust with combustion gases.
Older gas furnaces that utilize pilot lights have estimated AFUE ratings of 55 percent to 65 percent, so both your immediate and long-term savings could be significant if you replace such an inefficient unit with a modern 95 percent AFUE two-stage closed-combustion gas-fired model.
