Olympic Kilns builds affordable powerful volume producing glass kilns. Users are provided with equipment that handles capacity loads and large pieces with ease. The Large Capacity Glass Fusing kilns have many outstanding features and can be designed as top-loading, clamshell loading, or both top and clamshell loading; and as a Bell design with the firing chamber electronically raised and lowered and a removable floor for convenient loading and unloading.
The frames of the Large Capacity glass fusing kilns are built of heavy angle iron and metal tubing. Kiln walls are 4 ½” insulating brick with 1” ceramic fiberboard and 1” air space created by the tube frame. The result is an energy-efficient heavy load production kiln with a cooler outside surface and temperature. These models are built with double insulated floors consisting of brick and ceramic fiberboard. The kiln walls and floor are constructed of kiln brick and board insulation. Kiln brick, ceramic board, and pyro-block modules comprise the easy opening counter sprung lid.
Floor elements, when selected as an option, are controlled by infinite switches which can be adjusted by the kiln operator as needed. Glass fusing production kilns are equipped with heavy gauge elements and industrial relays for long life. Production volume glass kiln models have a hinged electrical box for easy access and their own breaker box for easy access, safety, and lockout.
Large Capacity glass kiln models come equipped with pilot light, heavy angle iron frame, stainless steel jacket, breaker box, Bartlett RTC-1000 digital electronic controller, and instruction manuals.
