Olympic Raku & Torchbearer gas kilns bisque, high fire (cone 10), reduce, and raku. Olympic updraft gas kilns are constructed from durable firebrick are equipped with venturi burner systems to ensure even temperature firings.
Torchbearer kilns with their portability offer many advantages such as low initial cost, convenient movement for demonstration ﬁrings, and for use in situations where space does not permit the installation of large permanent kilns. Torchbearer models fire using either natural gas or propane and may be easily adjusted for oxidation and reduction ﬁrings. The multiple burner conﬁguration gives the Torchbearer even heating characteristics, fast controllable ﬁring times, and economical operation. Additional rings may be added to the Torchbearer or decreased in size conforming to what the kiln operator needs.
Models can be purchased with burners only or with the option of a burner system which includes an ignition to light multiple burners at one point, maintain the flame on each burner and re-ignite any burner that may extinguish. The thermocouple safety shut-off will stop the gas flow if the flame is lost entirely.
