JUMP START BEAD Mode

The BEAD mode provides 4 pre-set JUMP START firing schedules for bead annealing and 4 optional USER Programs for creating custom firing schedules. The 4 pre-set JUMP START programs are recommended firing schedules that can also be customized if necessary. These programs provide the various heating and cooling steps for easy selection. 

Ramp and holding programs are useful while beading and lampworking. When the program is started the kiln heats fast and then holds at an annealing temperature for the longest amount of time that is planned to work. In this case 4 hours, and if the time to work suddenly becomes less, then you can use the skip step feature to advance the segment of the program. This segment has the same annealing temperature to hold so that the last couple beads have a chance to anneal for a time before the kiln proceeds to lower in temperature at 100 degrees. 

If you plan on working for 8 hours making beads and you need to stop after 5 hours, then skip step will advance you to the next segment so that the last few beads inserted into the kiln will have a chance to anneal before the kiln starts to cool.

½” Beads Small Moretti — Displayed as BD 1 Ramp and Hold

  • This program heats at Full Power (fast as it can) to 960ºF and holds for 4 hours
  • Then heats at Full Power (fast as it can) to 96º0F and holds this temperature for 30 minutes
  • Then heats at 100ºF/hour to 500ºF and holds this temperature for 0 minutes

1” Beads Large Moretti — Displayed as BD 2 Ramp and Hold

  • This program heats at Full Power (fast as it can) to 960ºF and holds for 4 hours
  • Then heats at Full Power (fast as it can) to 960F and holds this temperature for 1 hour
  • Then heats at 100ºF/hour to 500ºF and holds this temperature for 0 minutes

Batch Anneal Moretti — Displayed as BD3 Batch Annealing

  • This program heats at 300ºF/hour to 960ºF and holds this temperature for 1 hour
  • Then cools at 100ºF/hour to 670ºF and shuts off

Borosilicate Ramp and Hold — Displayed as BD4 Ramp and Hold

  • This program heats at Full Power (fast as it can) to 1050ºF and holds for 4 hours
  • Then heats at Full Power (fast as it can) to 940F and holds this temperature for 30 minutes
  • Then heats at 100ºF/hour to 500ºF and holds this temperature for 0 minutes
  • This program should only be used in kilns with a properly installed bead door to ‘garage’ hot projects 
You can change the pre-set Bead programs and edit them to fit your needs edited. However, if needed, you can always restore the original JUMP START values by entering a zero value for the first RA1 segment of each program and then pressing the PROGRAM button. In addition to the Bead pre-set JUMP START programs, the BEAD mode provides 4 USER defined programs for custom firing schedules. Each user defined program can be up to 8 steps.
