Model – 186GFE – 120 volt
Inside dimensions: 17.5″ wide x 6″ deep, fires to 1700° F
The 186GFE is as big as a 240-volt kiln but built to run on 120 volts. Now you have the size kiln you need without the extra expense of adding 240 volts when it isn’t available.
Glass firing kilns are used for fusing and forming glass shapes, precious metal clay, and heat-treating. 120-volt glass fusing and precious metal clay models are equipped with a lid element for the fusing segment of the glass firing and a body element for the ramping up and down and annealing segments of the firing. A selector switch is on the electrical box to designate either the lid or body element to heat during the firing. Only one of the elements can be used at a time because of the limited power of 120 volts. If the selector switch remains in the neutral position, neither element will heat. Models come equipped with a pilot light, an 18” tall metal stand, a stainless steel jacket, and a Bartlett Instruments 3 Key electronic controller. Data is entered by scrolling through the up and down arrows for the desired ramp/hold programming.
The model comes with a tall 18″ stand, peephole plug, lid wedge, and instruction manual. Two-year warranty.
Upgrade to the Genesis touchscreen controller or the 12-key digital KilnStar controller for more ramp-hold user programs and multiple features including delay start, preheat, skip step, and many more for precise firings every time. Messages and Information are available for reviewing a firing profile before or during the firing, and for viewing the current segment the firing is in. Other options include the lid lift assist, which makes it easy to open and close heavy kiln lids, bead door, quartz glass viewing window, Type S thermocouple, vent, and much more!
Furniture Kits for 120-volt glass fusing and PMC kilns include two layers of shelving for stacking ware, assorted square posts, ceramic paper, and a one-pound bag of kiln wash. Choose the standard furniture kit or build your own with shelves and posts in the quantities required.
