Melts metals via a powerful electric arc. The arc is deployed using graphite anodes that are partially spent during the process due to the high heat. Beware that the furnace consumes a significant amount of power. It would be polity to notify your local power plan before turning this on.

An Arc Furnace is a machine used to convert Quartz into Molten Silicon for the later creation of Silicon (Poly) in a Silicon Reactor. It requires Coal and Graphite while producing Slag and Exhaust byproducts. As Silicon (Poly) is a strict requirement for Electronics, the Arc Furnace or its Arc Furnace II variant is necessary for their production.
