A new type quartz melting furnace to avoid shortages of traditional quartz furnace such as high cost of graphite electrode, low production efficiency, high quartz melting furnace energy consumption is tested and simulated in this paper. Simulation is done as well as the experiment to test distribution of every sensor points. On the basis of comprehension of both results, a design 3-stage continuous furnace is given and then simulated. According to the later simulation, the energy consumption of new type furnace is 0.868 kWh/kg, which means 51% energy saving comparing with the traditional type’s consumption of 1.786kWh/kg.
