The GF32E Bell model has unique features which makes it a number one choice for volume production. The firing chamber lifts and lowers electronically and the top of the chamber contains the elements in quartz rods. The floor of the kiln can be built two different ways, 1) floor has rubber wheels to roll out for loading and unloading; or 2) floor is set on track for a smoother roll-out than the rubber wheels and can only come out as far as the track goes.
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; and as a Bell design with the firing chamber electronically raised and lowered and a removable floor for convenient loading and unloading.
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.
Floor elements, when selected as an option, are controlled by infinite switches which can be adjusted by the kiln operator as needed. Glass fusing production kilns are equipped with heavy gauge elements and industrial relays for long life. These 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 warranty card. One-year Limited Kiln Warranty. Options are available to include Type S thermocouple, 2 or 3 zone control, 480 volt, vents, and much more. Furniture Kits are available and provide 1 layer of shelving with smooth ceramic fiberboard, ceramic paper, and large square posts.
The Bartlett KILNSTAR 12-key Digital Controller gives you the freedom to create up to six, 8-step user programs. Other features include delay start, preheat, alarm, cone adjustments, thermocouple adjustments, °F or °C operation, 16 segment program, and skip step.
The GF15E 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 downtime 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.
ABOUT OUR FLAT RATE SHIPPING:
NOTE*** This GF32E BELL kiln is delivered fully assembled. No assembly is required on site. This kiln will require private freight company delivery as it cannot be sent through regular (LTL- less than truckload) shipping as it will require the entire truck. The carrier is responsible for transporting the freight but not for unloading it. Large capacity kilns 20 cubic feet and larger require the customer to have a forklift that can move the kiln from the truck to the desired location. If you do not have access to a forklift, check the internet or yellow pages for small moving companies that can take the freight off the long distance carrier and move the freight to the desired location. Give any prospective mover a physical description of the kiln and its weight, and inform them that it is designed to be picked up with truck a forklift only. It is your responsibility to move the freight from the truck to its place of use.
