Model – GF32E BELL 240 or 208 volt
Inside dimensions: 96″ wide x 48″ front-to-back x 12″ deep, fires to 1700° F
The GF32E Bell model has unique features that make it the number-one choice for volume production. The firing chamber lifts and lowers electronically and the top of the chamber contains the elements in quartz rods. The floor of the kiln can be built two separate ways, 1) the floor has rubber wheels to roll out for loading and unloading, or 2) the floor is set on track for a smoother roll-out than the rubber wheels and can only come out as far as the track goes.
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. These 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 a pilot light, heavy angle iron frame, stainless steel jacket, breaker box, KilnStar digital electronic controller, and instruction manuals. One-year Limited Kiln Warranty. Available options include upgrading to the Genesis touchscreen controller, Type S thermocouple, 2 or 3-zone control, 480 volts, vent, and much more. Furniture Kits are available and provide one layer of shelving with smooth ceramic fiberboard, ceramic paper, and large square posts.
