Cupola Melt System & Furnaces

Industrial Cupolas: Enhanced Function for a Proven Technology

Cupola furnaces are highly efficient melt systems for continuous casting of gray iron and other metals. While industrial cupolas are constructed with the same basic design as those in common use since the Industrial Revolution, today’s cupola furnaces are digitally controlled and highly automated. The cupola furnaces designed and built by EC&S are energy efficient, compliant with stringent emissions standards, and capable of maintaining tight quality control on any operating scale.
