July Featured Product – Olympic Ovals

The Incredible, Affordable Oval …


Cone 8 or cone 10 versions of the Olympic Oval are available and run on 208, 240 or 480 volts. Ovals come equipped with an electronic controller, combined lid lift and stand and observation plugs. Additional options include mercury relays, solid electrical box (replacing separate electrical boxes on each section), and three-zone control for sensing and maintaining temperature at three levels within the kiln.

The lid vent-hole substitutes for a lid wedge which is used with smaller kilns for venting. Each section or ring of the Oval has handles for easy lifting and unique ring locks made by Olympic prevent shifting of the kiln rings when in use. 

Olympic Ovals are available in three exciting widths –

  • 20 Ovals are 20 inches deep, front-to back by 30 inches long
  • 25 Ovals are 25 inches deep, front-to-back by 37 inches long
  • 30 Ovals are 30 inches wide, front-to-back by 42 inches long

Ovals depths measure 20 inches deep to 33 1/2 inches deep.

The Olympic Oval requires little more room than the cylindrical kiln yet it provides space for large ceramic pieces and bigger production loads. Olympic Oval kilns are extremely energy efficient, constructed of three-inch brick for added insulation and strength. The top section has an additional 2-inchh blank row of bricks to protect the first row of elements. The top and bottom sections are connected to the center section by an interconnecting plug, allowing the sections to be easily separated and reducing the amperage carried by the interconnecting plug. Balanced heating elements insure even distribution of heat within the kiln regardless of the load being fired.
