Industrial furnaces are used to produce a variety of products, including metals, plastics, and composites. They use a variety of processes to create the desired product. These processes include melting, cooling, and shaping. The furnaces can be used to make small batches or large quantities of products. The three main types of industrial furnaces are electric, gas, and oil. Electric furnaces use electricity to heat up the material, while gas furnaces use gas to do the same thing. Oil furnaces use oil as fuel to heat up the material.
