The Olympic FL5.5E electric kiln is a front-loading commercial model made for high fire loads. This is the second smallest volume model of the FL line and fires to 2,350°F on 240 or 208 volts.

All FL front-loading high volume production models come equipped with pilot light, welded heavy angle iron frame, stainless steel jacket, and 12-key digital controller for more ramp-hold user programs and multiple features including delay-start, preheat, cone offset, skip-step and many more for precise firings every time. 

The FL5.5E is also equipped with its own breaker box for easy access, safety, and lockout.

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.
