Olympic Kilns builds affordable, powerful glass firing kilns for industrial, commercial and production volume use. These models handle large capacity loads with ease and are extremely durable and long lasting. Our large glass firing kilns have many outstanding features including design options of top loading, guillotine lift, clamshell loading or bell loading options for convenient loading and unloading.
The frames of the Large Capacity kilns are built of heavy angle iron and metal tubing. Kiln walls are 4 ½” thick constructed of insulating brick, 1” ceramic fiber board and 1” air space created by the tube frame. The design results in an energy efficient kiln with a cooler surface and outside temperature. Olympic’s large capacity glass firing kilns have double insulated floors consisting of brick and ceramic fiberboard. The binder in the ceramic board insulation will emit an odor during the first firing. This is normal and will not occur after the kiln has been fired for the first time.
The lids of the top loading models are comprised of pyro-brick modules and a counter-sprung lid for easy opening and closing of the kiln lid. Our large capacity kilns are equipped with heavy gauge elements and industrial mercury relays for longevity. These heavy duty models come equipped with hinged electrical boxes and are equipped with their own breaker boxes (if over 50 amps) for easy access, safety and lockout.
