The Alpha, The Original 14" Square 120 volt Glass Fusing Kiln!
The Olympic Square 146GFE is equipped with a lid element for the fusing segment of the glass firing and a body element for the ramping up, down and annealing segments of the firing. A selector switch is on the electrical box to designate either the lid or body element to heat during the firing. One of the elements is used at a time because of the limited power of 120 volts. If the selector switch remains in the neutral position, neither element will heat.
The 12" square shelf in this kiln allows for even bigger projects. The stand is nice and tall, so you won't have to bend over to load it. Best of all, the Olympic Square 146GFE kiln is sent via UPS, making set up even easier.
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.
