The Kirby Furnace Smelting and Refining Company was incorporated in South Dakota in 1904 and was based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
The company's product (per their own claim) operated as follows:
"In furnaces of the type described, the combination of a fire-box, an ore-smelting hearth, a collecting-basin, a flue extending in the rear of and beneath said basin and in such juxtaposition thereto, that the products of combustion passing through said flue will communicate their heat to said basin."
