e28T-3 Pottery Kiln

Model e28T-3 Easy-Fire Automatic Kiln with with Multi-Program Three-Zoned DynaTrol mounted in an easy-open cool-firing piggy-back control panel that is angled for easy viewing of control. Kiln comes with hard ceramic element holders, thermocouple protection tubes, strong solid-top stand, easy-lift spring hinge, and solid peephole plugs. 28" diameter by 27" high (10.2 cubic feet). 3" K23 brick. NEMA 6-50 single phase or 15-50 three phase 6 foot power cord included. C-MET-us listed in the USA & Canada. Cone 10 for all three phase models- see below for single phase.

Note about  e28T-3 Easy-Fire Kiln on 1 phase power

The e28T-3 kiln is only rated for Cone 8 when the power supply is 240 volts, 1 phase. It is only rated for Cone 5 when the power supply is 208 volts, 1 phase.

A cone rating should be several cones higher than the cone you plan to fire to. Elements in a kiln that is rated for cone 8 will not last very long when firing to cone 5 or 6 especially with heavy loads.

That said- if you answer yes to any of these following questions, you probably want to go with a more powerful L&L, like the eQ2827-3 or the JD2927-3-QD (if you need UL listing). Both of these kilns, in the single phase versions, have more power (watts) than the e28T-3 and will consistently deliver the power you need to reach Cone 6. On the other hand, both the 240 and 208 volt three phase versions of the e28T-3 deliver plenty of power (watts), so this note does not apply to three phase e28T-3 models.

  1. Do you fire to Cone 5 or 6 at least twice a month?
  2. Would you fire with more than 3 layers of kiln shelves in a kiln this size?
  3. Can you get a larger circuit breaker? (80 amp breaker for 240 volts, 1 phase OR 90 amp breaker for 208 volts, 1 phase)

NOTE: If the largest circuit breaker you can have is a 60 amp breaker on 240 volts, 1 phase power, you should either get a smaller L&L- like the e23T-3, or count on changing the elements often- about every 30 or so firings. Another help is to get the Quad element option. With the Quad element option the elements will last longer but you won't get any more power in the kiln (so you could still get slow firings).

Three 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. Three total: one per section.
Three control zones with three 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

Corrosion resistant materials and methods result in a long-lasting kiln.
Three case clamps per 9" high kiln section are redundant safety for your L&L kiln.
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.
Industrial grade ceramic terminal blocks make changing elements easy.
Special brick coating hardens and seals brick for durability and cleaner operation.
Aluminized stands are extremely strong and corrosion resistant. The offer solid support under the kiln - unlike spot-welded angle stands that are common in the industry.
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.
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.

Performance

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.
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.
K23 firebrick combines good insulation with strength

Ease of Use

Feather-light spring hinge allows full access without a side support bar - for easy loading. Standard on all 10 and 10 sided polygonal kilns.
Angled control panel makes viewing control and programming easier. (Easy-Fire only)
Solid large non-tapered peepholes allow a wider view into the kiln.

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

Most L&L kilns are MET listed to UL499 standards. Listed kilns include Easy-Fire. Jupiter. DaVinci, School-Master, Liberty-Belle. Hercules & Easy-Load kilns areMET-Us Listed for US only.
Power Relays are mercury-free to comply with increasing regulation and concern about mercury in schools
All L&L Kilns come with an on-off switch

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.

All power is switched off with a 50 amp power switch before the door can physically be opened. (Easy-Fire & School-Master Kilns only).
