Olympic Kilns builds affordable powerful volume-producing glass kilns. Users are provided with equipment that handles capacity loads and large pieces with ease. The Production Glass Fusing kilns have many outstanding features and can be designed as top-loading, clamshell loading, or both top and clamshell loading.
The frames of the Production glass fusing kilns are built of heavy angle iron and metal tubing. Kiln walls are 4 ½” insulating brick with 1” ceramic fiberboard and 1” air space created by the tube frame. The result is an energy-efficient heavy load production kiln with a cooler outside surface and temperature.
These models are built with double insulated floors consisting of brick and ceramic fiberboard. The kiln's walls and floor are constructed of kiln brick and board insulation. Kiln brick, ceramic board, and pyro-block modules comprise the easy opening counter sprung lid.
Glass fusing production kilns are equipped with heavy gauge elements and industrial relays for long life. Production volume glass kiln models have a hinged electrical box for easy access and their own breaker box for easy access, safety, and lockout.
Production glass kiln models come equipped with pilot light, heavy angle iron frame, stainless steel jacket, breaker box, Bartlett RTC-1000 digital electronic controller, instruction manuals, and a warranty card.
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.
