The 2323HE Freedom Series kiln is made of 3" brick for extra insulation and energy efficiency. It is equipped with the Bartlett Instruments 12-key electronic controller with six ramp-hold user programs and multiple features including delay start, preheat, cone offset, skip step and many more for precise firings every time. Messages and Information are available for reviewing a firing profile before or during the firing, viewing the current segment the firing is in, and cone table for easy look up of temperature and cone number equivalents.
Every Freedom Series kiln ships with its own Freedom Kit, an emergency repair kit filled with over $200 worth of items including two elements, a thermocouple, pint of mortar, crimping tool and wiring schematic.

Should I Upgrade This to A Dual Media Kiln?
Dual Media kilns are designed for the individual or business that works with multiple media. The dual design for reaching high firing temperatures for stoneware, pottery, ceramics, and the lid element for fusing glass provides the versatility needed. You can turn the lid element on and off when you need it saving your element's life and electricity. Oval dual media kilns are built with a 2" blank brick row in the first section of the kiln to protect the elements when loading and unloading the kiln. All Dual Media models high fire to 2350°F and have a lid element to fuse glass.
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.
WHAT MAKES AN OLYMPIC 23H” & 28H” KILN A BETTER CHOICE?
Smart Investment - Olympic 23H” and 28H” models are recognized as a smart investment because of longevity and durability. These models are perfect for the classroom because they are tough and can handle continuous firings.
Extra Insulation = Energy Efficiency - The 23H” and 28H” models are built with 3-inch brick which provides extra insulation resulting in energy efficiency. Olympic’s proven electrical box design, with heat shields and perforations, in the top and bottom, keep the electrical components cool. Balanced heating elements ensure even heating of the firing chamber under all firing conditions.
Stackable - Olympic 23H” and 28H” models are stackable because they are built in sections. This means the kiln can be easily taken apart or changed in size without having to remove the entire electrical box.
Versatility – Olympic 23H & 28H models come in depths ranging from 18”, 22 1⁄2”, 27” and 31 1⁄2” deep. You can add an optional lid element enabling your kiln to fire both ceramics and glass.
Electronic Controller Choice - You can equip your kiln with one of the four electronic controllers Olympic carries based on what works best for you. Choose either the 3 Key/Cone Fire, digital V6-CF or RTC-1000, or the Genesis touchscreen controller.
Lid Lift - Olympic 23H” and 28H” models are built with Lid Lift Assists for easy opening or closing of kiln lid.
Multiple Options – Choose from additional accessories to enhance your kiln, including 2-3 zone control, solid state or mercury relays, castors, and/or an automatic lid shut-off.
Customer Service – At Olympic, they love their products and their customers! They will always be there when you need assistance.
