Model – Quatro 16 TLC Top & Clamshell Loading – 120 volt, inside dimensions: 16.5″ x 16.5″ wide x 6 ” deep, fires to 1700° F
The Quatro 16 TLC provides a square glass fusing kiln for individuals who need a kiln larger than 14.5″ x 14.5″ wide (Square 146GFE) but not as large as 18″ x 18″ wide (Square 186GFE). Glass firing kilns are used for fusing and forming glass shapes, precious metal clay and heat-treating. 120-volt glass fusing and precious metal clay models are equipped with a lid element for the fusing segment of the glass firing and a body element for the ramping up, down, and annealing segments of the firing. A selector switch is on the electrical box to designate either the lid or body element to heat during the firing. Only one of the elements can be used at a time because of the limited power of 120 volts. If the selector switch remains in the neutral position, neither element will heat. Models come equipped with pilot light, 18” tall metal stand, stainless steel jacket, and Bartlett Instruments 3 Key electronic controller. Data is entered by scrolling through the up and down arrows for the desired ramp/hold programming. Two-year warranty.
Upgrade to the 12 key digital RTC-1000 controller for more ramp-hold user programs and multiple features including delay start, preheat, 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, and for viewing the current segment the firing is in. Other options include the lid lift assist, which makes it easy to open and close heavy kiln lids, bead door, quartz glass viewing window, Type S thermocouple, vent, and much more!
