Gupta, K N (1994) Cast Iron Melting in Cupola : Its Design, Operation and Control. In: Workshop for Small Scale Foundries as a part of Skill-Cum-Technology Upgradation Programme, December 26-27, 1994, NML, Jamshedpur.



Cupola is a melting furnace used for melting Cast irons for the production of grey cast iron castings, malleable iron castings and ductile iron castings. The word cupola is the diminutive of the latin word "Cupa" meaning cask, due to the fact that cupola was just like a cask. The first design of the modern cupola was made by John Wilkinson and took patent in 1794. This was followed by several .designs by Poumay, Moore, Piwonarsky, Griffin and MBC hot blast cupola.
