Olympic Raku & Torchbearer gas kilns bisque, high fire (cone 10), reduce, and raku. Olympic updraft gas kilns are constructed from durable firebrick and are equipped with venturi burner systems to ensure even temperature firings.
Olympic Raku gas kilns are specially designed for raku work by retaining heat in the firing chamber when elevated by the turn of a hand winch, allowing easy access, while trapping the heat in the kiln and away from the operator.
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.
Olympic Raku and Torchbearer models come with the frame welded to the firing chamber (Rakus) or with the burners welded onto the kiln stand (Torchbearers), peephole plugs, brick for covering the porthole on top of the kiln lid or chamber during reduction, and an instruction manual. One-year Limited Kiln warranty.
