Fireworker Kilns

Fireworker Kilns
Fireworker kilns are supplied complete with a controller and thermo-couple, and benefit from an additional protection relay for extra security. The controller connects to the kiln via a Harting socket which offers flexibility for installation. The kilns feature sturdy brick construction with brick to brick door seals within a powder-coated steel chassis. An adjustable-clasp door lock provides security and efficient sealing during firing. The kilns use high grade Kanthal A1 spiral wound elements for long life and energy efficiency. Elements are located in traditional grooves on both the side walls and the floor of the kiln. This allows uniform heat distribution throughout the chamber. In addition the elements are graded from top to bottom, further aiding even temperature distribution.

Fireworker kilns can be bench-mounted provided that the bench has been fireproofed. Alternatively, a sturdy and convenient stand has been developed especially for the fireworker kilns (as shown above). The stand has a built in shelf and the dimensions are 660(W) x 670(D) x 720(H)mm.

Heatworker Kilns

Heatworker Kilns
Heatworker kilns have similar features and equipment to the smaller Fireworker models and will probably meet the capacity requirements of most schools and colleges with a busy pottery section.

Heatworker kilns achieve excellent energy efficiency by using durable low thermal-mass insulation brick and high grade backup insulation board to form the chamber. Durability and protection is ensured with a robust pressed-steel powder-coated frame and stainless steel surrounds. Heavy duty spiral wound elements are used to heat the kiln. These elements are tube-mounted for optimum efficiency on both the side walls and floor of the kiln, to allow uniform heat distribution throughout the chamber. In addition, elements are graded from top to bottom to further aid even temperature distribution within the kiln.

Lightmaster Kilns

Lightmaster Kilns
Lightmaster kilns share the same features and build-quality of the Heatworker and Firemaster models and will be ideal for schools and colleges requiring a traditional front loading kiln with significantly enhanced capacity.

The kilns are constructed of durable low thermal mass insulation brick with two high grade backup insulation boards. Durability and protection is ensured with a robust pressed-steel powder-coated frame and stainless steel surrounds. Heavy duty Kanthal A1 spiral wound elements are used to heat the kiln. These elements are mounted in grooves on both the side walls and floor of the kiln, to allow uniform heat distribution throughout the chamber. In addition, elements are graded from top to bottom to further aid even temperature distribution within the kiln. The kilns have adjustable clasp door locks fitted and stainless steel surrounds. They also have brick to brick door seals and type ‘R’ thermocouples as standard fittings. The kilns are energy efficient and have a roof and door vent for use during firing and to aid cooling.

Ceramaster Kilns

Ceramaster Kilns
The Ceramaster is a semi-industrial kiln and ideal for schools and colleges needing a large capacity kiln for a busy full-time ceramics studio.

The kilns are constructed of a durable low thermal mass insulation brick with a high grade backup insulation board. The roof is of flat arch construction, again with two layers of backup insulation. This is all enclosed within a robust high quality pressed steel powder coated frame. Heavy duty spiral wound elements are tube mounted for optimum efficiency and sited on both side walls and floor of the kiln for even heat distribution. All kilns in the Ceramaster range are now fitted with a manual damper as standard.

Kiln Controllers

The CERA-2 controller is supplied as standard with each kiln. It has two programs, each with three segments - delay start, three heating/cooling ramps, soak, cut-off and program pause. It is a straight forward controller for pottery firing where usually two programs are used. Having three ramps allows for a warming or a cooling phase in the program.

An upgrade option is available to the CERA-10 controller at time of purchase of the kiln. The CERA-10 controller has ten programs, each with ten segments - delay start, ten heating/cooling ramps, a target temperature, soak, cut-off and program pause. This advanced controller is ideal for firings where a range of programs are frequently used. The CERA-10 can be used for any firing requiring close control over multiple heating and cooling ramps such as macro crystal glazes and for glass slumping and fusing.
