Furnace Sizing
Furnace sizing starts with the understanding of how the molten metal is to be utilized. What is the largest pour, how often, total volume per hour of production? The largest pour can determine the required furnace size, however if multiple furnaces are planned and the large pour is rarely required, multiple furnaces can be simultaneously used and thereby reduce the size of the average furnace.

Typically, the hourly volume of molten metal determines the furnace size, unless multiple furnaces are utilized simultaneously. Charging, prepping, and pouring the furnace on the basis of a one-hour cycle, is the most common practice in foundries today. Therefore, a production rate of 2000 pounds per hour would indicate the need for a 2000-pound capacity furnace.
