Through the use of Smelting gauntlets and the Superheat Form curse, a theoretical maximum of 2,000 gold bars can be smelted per hour (or 1,500 without Superheat Form), although the actual rate will be slightly lower due to needing to interact with the interface between batches.

If the Orthen furnace core is equipped, the Superheat Form curse will not drain any prayer points. Without it, a Grace of the elves will half the prayer point drain of the curse and a Super prayer renewal potion (6) costing 49,060 coins can be used to replenish prayer points.

The Smelting gauntlets provide the ability to smelt ore in batches of 60 at once, when worn. Additionally, each bar takes 4 ticks (2.4s) to smelt normally, but using the Superheat Form curse reduces this by one tick per bar to 3 ticks (1.8s). The Modified blacksmith's helmet is recommended as this gives a 1% chance of receiving an extra bar without consuming an extra ore.
