The furnace is the driving synthetic tool in base minecraft to convert unprocessed materials into more sophisticated materials with the application of heat. Polycraft has added a number of recipes into the furnace itself and created a host of more sophisticated inventories that are better able to process materials into complex forms.
The industrial oven is a scaled up version of the furnace that will be able to smelt/cook multiple items at once with a variety of more complex fuels. The Industrial Oven can be crafted and used in further crafting but is not functional as of the first beta launch release (1.0.7) on Oct. 23, 2014. The Distillation Column, Steam Cracker, Merox Treatment Unit, and Chemical Processor are all polycraft heated inventories that extend the capabilities of the Stone Age furnace into the Plastics Age ushered in to Minecraft via Polycraft World.
