DM2818HE 240- or 208-volt Dual Media for firing ceramics and equipped with a lid element for fusing glass
Inside dimensions: 28.25″ wide x 18″ deep, fires to cone 10/2350°F
Dual Media kilns are designed for Individuals or businesses who work with multiple media. The dual design for reaching high firing temperatures for stoneware, pottery, ceramics, and the lid element for fusing glass provide the versatility needed. Oval dual media kilns are built with a 2″ blank brick row in the first section of the kiln to protect the elements when loading and unloading the kiln. All Dual Media models high fire to 2350°F and have a lid element to fuse glass.
Dual Media models are built with the Olympic proven electrical box design which has heat shields with top and bottom perforations to keep the electrical components cool, and balanced heating elements insure even heating of the firing chamber under all firing conditions. Dual Media kilns come equipped with pilot light, metal stand, stainless steel jacket, and Bartlett 3K-CF electronic controller. Data is entered by scrolling through the up and down buttons for the desired cone fire or ramp/hold programming. One-year Limited Kiln Warranty for cone 10 models.
Upgrade to the Genesis touchscreen controller or the 12 key digital Bartlett V6-CF controller or RTC-1000 controller for more ramp-hold user programs and multiple features including delay start, preheat, cone offset, 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, viewing the current segment the firing is in, and cone table for easy lookup of temperature and cone number equivalents. Other options include Type S thermocouple, 480 volts, 2 or 3 zone control, vent, and much more!
Furniture kits are available for dual media electric kilns; however, you can create your own furniture kit. The furniture kits for 18” wide models come with small 1” x 1” square posts which provide more room to fire items inside the kiln. The 23H”, 28H” and oval furniture kits come with the larger posts sized 1 ½” x 1 ½” square.
