We own the Jen-Ken AFG ProFusion Fiber 26" kiln, and we think it just can't be beat! We can do 3 pot melts in it at one time. Wow! That's cool! It holds so much and the clamshell design is so great on the back. The high stand means no more bending back aches when loading the kiln. Plus, this kiln is a fantastic deal! The stand alone is worth $500! We've been waiting for the perfect size between the 16" and the 36" and it's now available at the perfect 26" size! This 26" all-fiber top clam shell style kiln can hold a 24" kiln shelf on it's 26" solid brick base. Plus it's on a 32" high heavy metal stand with casters so you can place it anywhere in your studio! You can stand and build right on the shelf without any of that annoying back pain!
This is one of the new generation of kilns made from rigid fiber that is hard as a rock. No more fluffy stuff that pills and tares. So cool! It's 100% fiber top means it heats and cools really fast when you want it to, but can be programmed for long slow anneals too. Square means more space, Finally a full sheet of Bullseye's Tekta can be fired with no compromises! This kiln heats so fast you have to be careful not to thermal shock the ceramic shelf. We recommend getting a fiber shelf if you want to rock this kiln on full to fusing temps.
This kiln is perfect for large formats and production of smaller stuff too. It uses much less electricity than our old kilns that were smaller. We were was the official beta test site for the 16" and the 36" kiln and we are so excited to share the news that this design is a winner!
Why Upgrade from Mechanical Relays to Solid-State Relays?
Mechanical Relays, which come standard on most kilns have internal moving parts which over time wear out and need to be replaced. Kiln manufacturers recommend you replace your mechanical relays approximately every 2 years. Solid-state relays have no moving parts and last far longer than standard mechanical relays and offer far better temperature control during hold times. Since solid-state relays also have no moving parts to wear out, they NEVER need to be replaced. You will notice that solid-state relays are silent. The only sound you will hear is just the reassuring hum of the heating elements. So, this factory upgrade saves you potential down time from having to wait for new relays to arrive, potential over-fires from relays sticking in the closed position, potential aggravation from having to learn how to remove and replace the mechanical relays yourself. We think this upgrade is well worth the cost and will save you time and aggravation over the life of your kiln.
