A retort furnace is a furnace wherein a closed vessel of metal or ceramic is utilized in a batch process. Retorts allow accurate and efficient control of the work space atmosphere and provide low atmosphere usage due to the closed nature of the system.

Retorts can be fixed mounted in Front Loading Box Furnaces with gasketed doors, Pit Furnaces with a flange at the top, or moveable in Bell Furnaces that are lowered over a fixed base, or Bells permanently mounted inside the heating chamber of a Bottom Loading Furnace.
