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
