Anode Furnaces

An anode furnace is a specialized fire-furnace used to refine blister copper into anode copper. Blister copper is 98% pure copper created during the smelting process when sulfur is removed. The anode furnace is used to further refine the blister copper by removing any remaining oxygen in the copper. The result is copper that is about 99% pure.
