Electric Furance

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“The electric furnace is a device by which a very high temperature is obtained by using a large arc between carbon terminals. The arc consists of carbon vapor, which conducts the current over the gap between the carbons and the resistance is so great that much heat is developed.” -Brownlee 1907
