Two 9” high sections stack on top of each other. The hinge and element connection box hold the entire kiln together as an integrated unit. The kiln is very easy to assemble and disassemble. All wires are marked or color coded and attach to pull-off terminal strips.  More about sectional construction...
Stainless steel wrapped around shaped firebrick. There are three adjustable clamps welded to each casing. All assembly is with stainless steel screws. The kiln sections sit on a separate stand.
Spring loaded "Easy-Lift" lid opens with a feather-lite touch. The strength of the hinge allows the lid to rest back away from the opening without a support arm that would get in the way of loading the kiln.
Heavy-duty 14 gauge full solid stand with multiple bends for strength. Legs bolt on with heavy 1/4-20 stainless bolts. The metal is aluminized for good corrosion resistance.
A proprietary brick coating is applied to all interior surfaces of the kiln. This is put on before the element holders are inserted. This coating penetrates the firebrick and fuses the surface on a microscopic level which helps prevent dusting and crumbling of the fragile firebrick.
Solid ceramic peephole plugs with full 1” diameter. Two total: one per section.
Two control zones with two separate thermocouples. More about zone control.
8 Ga Type K Exposed Thermocouple in Mullite Protection Tube (4.5" long /114mm)
Mounted on control panel
The control panel is angled for easy viewing and operation of the DynaTrol. All controls and components are mounted in a separate control panel that is piggy-backed on top of the element connection box. A layer of insulation and this separation helps keep the controls cool for longer life. The control panel and element box are hinged for easy access and maintenance. Moreover, when the top control panel is in the open position it rigidly stays in a perpendicular position making servicing safer and easier than with other make kilns. Also the control box can be easily removed for servicing. On/off switch and control fuse are included. More about Easy-Fire control panel.
Control box drops down perpendicular to kiln for easy access to wiring and controls. All electrical wires are color coded or numbered.

Durability

Durability, Repairability, Better Heat Transfer. The smooth, hard surface of the inside ceramic channel allows the elements to expand and contract freely. No pins! The dense ceramic holders extend element life because they do not insulate the hot elements from the kiln interior.
Mullite protection tubes extend thermocouple life and keep kiln clean. The mullite protection tube keeps the metal oxides of the thermocouple tip from dropping off and contaminating your work.
Thick 8 gauge thermocouples last a long time. Special Limit of Error to ANSI MC96.1 specifications is used.
Industrial grade ceramic terminal blocks make changing elements easy.
Special brick coating hardens and seals brick for durability and cleaner operation.
Three case clamps per 9" high kiln section are redundant safety for your L&L kiln.
Corrosion resistant materials and methods result in a long-lasting kiln.
Stainless Steel clips help the lid stay secure and durable. This extra step ensures that the lid won't slip out of the stainless steel band.
Arched sides on DaVinci kilns are very strong and promote good air circulation
A unique welded rigid frame supports the entire lid on a DaVinci kiln.

Performance

DynaTrol with 4 Easy-Fire programs (Slow Bisque, Fast Bisque, Slow Glaze, Fast Glaze), 6 custom programs, PreHeat, Delay, Program, Segment Review, and Diagnostics. Zone control included on most kilns.
Zone control gives you the utmost in controllable temperature uniformity. The DynaTrol separately measures temperatures in the bottom, middle and top of the kiln and automatically adjusts the heat output of three zones during the entire firing.
K23 firebrick combines good insulation with strength

Ease of Use

Angled control panel makes viewing control and programming easier. (Easy-Fire only)
Solid large non-tapered peepholes allow a wider view into the kiln.
Even the largest DaVinci lids can easily be lifted by one person.

Support

Most L&L Kilns have a three-year limited warranty.
The combined experience at L&L Kilns in kilns, ceramics, electrical engineering and process engineering is unsurpassed. We work as a team to help you get you answers and help.

Serviceability

Remove two screws and a few plug-on wires and the panel disconnects in 5 minutes.
The bottom can be easily reversed in case of a firing mishap.
Sectional kiln construction makes kilns easy to move, set up and disassemble for maintenance.

Safety

All L&L Kilns come with an on-off switch
Power Relays are mercury-free to comply with increasing regulation and concern about mercury in schools

Elements

The combination of 1/2" diameter element coils, the doubled surface area of the Quad element design, and superior heat transfer of L&L's patented ceramic element holders, make this the best element system in the world today. 

APM elements increase element life in difficult applications

Thermocouples

Type S Platinum Thermocouples are recommended for high fire applications

Pyrocil thermocouples are sensitive but limited to about 2200°F but offer greater sensitivity to temperature change and so may be appropriate in applications below 2200°F that require sensitivity.

Vents

The L&L Vent-Sure Kiln Vent is the most powerful downdraft kiln vent on the market today. That means you have more flexibility in the installation.

The Vent Control allows you to automatically control the operation of the Vent-Sure kiln vent with one of the outputs from the DynaTrol (or Genesis). 

Kiln Furniture

Kiln furniture kits are the recommended set of ceramic shelves, posts and kiln wash that go with each kiln model. These are for loading the work in the kiln.

Cone 10 Kiln wash is used to coat shelves to prevent sticking of glaze.

These safety gloves are perfect for handling hot work when unloading a kiln.

Controls

The new Genesis control from Bartlett includes a touch screen interface and WIFI connectivity added to the proven software of the DynaTrol. 

Control, monitor and record data for up to 10 kilns from your computer for a one-time price.

Power

This option helps protect your control from electrical noise

Miscellaneous

This special Seismic Kiln Rack and Brace is designed to prevent a kiln from falling over during an earthquake.
