Why Hot Shot Series?

Hot Shot has multiple different series available for any purpose. Although the Hot Shot line was developed for heat treating, we've tested them with glass and ceramics and they perform incredibly well! The kilns are capable of heating up to 2000°F and can temper up to 600°F.

Cool Touch Technology

Hot Shot Oven & Kilns are equipped with Cool-Touch Technology that provides a safe external temperature to allow for safer operation and protection of its surroundings. Each dual display oven comes with a removable high-density fiber kiln floor. This is ideal to assist with project setup or if it needs to be replaced. It is built with a high-quality 304 stainless-steel core construction with a fan-cooled external powder-coated enclosure. It features a dual-layer air plenum for external heat management and precise temperature control. 

Side Opening Fiber Lined Door with Cool Touch Handle

Using a heat-treating oven entails removing very hot material from the core to go to the next phase of the process. This oven is designed to have a side-opening door that can open far enough to not be in the way. The handle is designed for a one-handed operation for easy and quick removal of the material. Safety is a key concern so the cool touch handle is made from high-quality stainless steel. In addition, the door opens completely out of the way, to keep users safe.

Hot Shot ovens include a fiber-lined door and full fiber body, which absorbs less heat than a firebrick kiln.  For this reason, Hot Shot ovens fire and cool faster when programmed to so you can use your Hot Shot kiln to fire small projects quickly!

Cooling Fan

Hot Shot Ovens come standard with a rear vented cooling fan. The oven fan turns on automatically when the kiln is in operation. While the cooling fan stays on, the outer surface of the oven will stay within 68°F/20°C of room ambient. Please make sure to keep the fan unit at least 3 inches from any wall or obstruction.

Solid State Relays INCLUDED (WOW!)

All Hot Shot ovens come standard with a solid-state relay. Having a solid-state relay eliminates the distractive clicking noise that a mechanical relay makes. A solid-state relay is also more dependable and provides a longer life expectancy than a mechanical relay. Best of all, Solid-state relays deliver better temperature regulation, keeping you closer to your target temperature every step of your firing program.

Cutting Edge Performance

High-efficiency technology allows you to reach the maximum temperature of 2000 degrees F/1093 Degrees C with the use of the on-screen controller. This unit is equipped with a kiln type “K” thermocouple and 16AWG Kanthal A-1 heating element.

Each piece of insulation is routered to fit perfectly together. This allows for the oven to maintain the temperature perfectly and not fluctuate due to gaps or poor fit. Each piece is routered to fit the heating element perfectly, so it has a snug fit. Each oven comes with a removable high-density kiln floor. This is ideal to assist with project setup or if it needs to be replaced.

N480D Controller

The N480D series of PID temperature controllers were designed for non-experienced novice users for combining extreme simplicity in operation with high performance only found in expensive high-end controllers.

It is a low-cost instrument that can be easily installed and operated. It accepts most thermocouples and Pt100 RTD features a relay and pulse output for driving solid-state relays and optionally can be supplied with a linear 4 to 20 mA output.

Autotuning PID function, dual display, full-range universal power supply, and ramps soak function are standard.

It greatly surpasses the old and obsolete analog controllers in performance with ease of operation.

Programmable Alarm

Each unit comes standard with an integrated alarm that can be set to alert the user when a desired point or temperature is reached in the program.
We also have integrated a safety door switch that will de-energize the heating element when the door is open.
