Furnaces convert ore to metal, consuming fuel.
There are two main types of furnace: Charcoal-fired furnaces with relatively short firing times, and large Petroleum-fired furnaces with much longer firing times but greater efficiency.
The most time and resource efficient CC furnace is the Gyration Cell.
|Furnace||Fuel Type||Max Ore||Fuel Req||Typical Ore:Metal||Typical Fuel:Metal||Maximum Fire Time||Typical Use||Notes|
|Bullet Furnace||Charcoal||200||5||100:1||2.5:1||5 minutes||188 ore + 4 charcoal = 2 metal|
|Compression Furnace||Charcoal||500||20||33.33:1||1.33:1||20 minutes||484 ore + 20 cc = 15 metal||May cause heavy metal pollution|
|Blast Furnace||Charcoal||1000||10||17:1||0.37:1||10 minutes?|
|Gyration Cell||Charcoal||1500||50||10:1||0.33:1||15 minutes||Low pollution, currently the best CC furnace|
|Persephone Furnace||Petroleum||20000||1-1000||8:1||0.035:1||typ. 4+ days||Believed to produce no pollution|
|Hades Furnace||Petroleum||20000||1-1000||6:1||0.06:1||typ. 4+ days||No pollution this tale|
