The Crucible 18 is built with heavy insulation of 3” thick brick walls and a 1” fiber blanket surrounded by a solid stainless steel jacket. A one-inch ceramic fiberboard gasket retains the heat in the kiln when gathering glass from the crucible and customized gaskets can be cut to the size of crucible when the kiln is ordered. A stainless steel trough protects the kiln brick when gathering glass and the counter weighted lid cover makes gathering glass safe and easy. The 3” thick separate kiln bottom may be turned over or easily replaced if damaged.
The Crucible 18 is equipped with an automatic lid shut-off which turns the elements off when the lid of the kiln is opened.
Element Operation: Four (4) sets of elements can be used for rapid heat up. Two (2) sets are required to maintain temperature, two (2) sets in reserve to prevent unwanted cooling if an element is lost while firing. For rapid heating or melting glass, more than two element sets may be used. Banks of elements are labeled on the electrical box – 1-3, 2-4, 5-7, and 6-8.
