This kiln does it all. An Orton controller that has cone fire schedules and well as user programmable. The temperature in the kiln is displayed the entire firing so that you always know where the kiln is in the firing. It will also calculate the cost of the firing, the time the firing took, and the temperature the kiln made it to. The 55amp-direct wire version offers you more readily available power and longer element life.
This kiln reaches a solid cone 10 firing when fired slowly and held at 2300F, saving you valuable element life! Jen-Ken's over 60 years of reliability and quality will serve you for many years with this solid kiln!!
Zone control with multiple thermocouples is available as an option on this model kiln. This kiln is also available as 3-phase. Email or call us for special pricing on these options.
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.
