Can I convert my older J Series Manual Econo-Kiln to an automatic kiln?

Can I convert my older J Series Manual Econo-Kiln to an automatic kiln?
  1. The Jupiter automatic kilns use the same basic kiln sections that made the J Series Econo-Kilns so popular and reliable.
  2. You can purchase a new control box that the old sections will plug into.
  3. See the Parts List for pricing on the various panels.
  4. Because of the cost of a new panel, it may be worth considering buying a new kiln but, in any case, the option is a possibility. 
  5. Be sure to talk directly to the factory if you want to do this. We are using all 20 amp cords and receptacles now and, on some J Series kilns, you may have to change either your plugs or have us put in 15 amp receptacles.
  6. We do not make a separate control box to plug our old manual kilns into. We recommend talking to Orton if you are interested in that possibility.
