Model – GF5E 240 or 208 volt
Inside dimensions: 29″ x 29″ wide x 9″ deep, fires to 1700° F
The GF5E’s square design expands the firing space provided by traditional cylindrical glass kilns. The model has an element in the lid of the kiln to provide radiant heat needed when fusing temperature is reached and elements in the kiln walls for conductive heat are used to evenly heat the glass piece. Models have a maximum temperature range of 1700° F to protect the optional quartz glass viewing window but can be reprogrammed to fire to higher temperatures. Glass kiln models 20” wide or larger are equipped with a lid lift assist for easy opening and closing of the kiln lid.
240-208-volt glass fusing kilns come equipped with a pilot light, a tall 18” metal stand or frame, stainless steel jacket, and Bartlett 3 Key electronic controller. Controller data is entered by scrolling for the desired temperature for ramp/hold programming. Included in the kiln package are peephole plugs and instruction manuals. Two-year Kiln Limited Warranty.
Additional options include upgrading to the RTC-1000 digital controller or the Genesis controller with touchscreen technology, KISS computer interface, Type S thermocouple, flash arm, quartz glass viewing windows, lid elements in quartz rods, venting, and more!
