Knowledgebase FAQ

  • See the Sales FAQs for Frequently Asked Sales and Preorder Questions
  • The Knowledgebase is organized into a series of questions and answers having to do mostly with technical troubleshooting and understanding of kilns.
  • Although we write this for our own kilns many of these articles apply to other makes - although L&L takes no responsibility for that.
  • Many Knowledgebase articles have Actions, PDFs and Videos associated with them.
  • Actions are specific actions for you to take during the troubleshooting or repair process.
  • Each Action may also have Videos and PDFs associated with it and, in addition, specific Cautions.

Standard Easy-Fire Program Profiles in the DynaTrol

EASY-FIRE TEMPERATURE PROFILES

These charts tell what the EASY-FIRE programs do to your kiln when you choose one of them. These charts will also be good reference points for writing your own programs in the VARY-FIRE mode. These charts are for cones 07 through 04 and cones 5, 6, 7, and 10. Other cone numbers will work as well in your own programs.

NOTE: No delays, preheats. or final soaks are shown. When these programs are fired the actual final temperatures will vary as the Dynatrol adjusts itself based on how quickly it is climbing to that final temperature. This would not be the case for VARY-FIRE programs that you develop and input yourself.

Also note that all these programs end on Seg 7 rather than start on Seg 1. This is due to the way the Orton feature works in the EASY-FIRE mode and is not relevant to your own programming in the VARY-FIRE mode. (Seg #7 in the EASY-FIRE mode is a special Seg that incorporates the Orton software and so
it must be the last Seg of every “ EASY-FIRE” profile). Start your VARY-FIRE profiles on Seg 1.

NOTE: All the programs shown are written to accommodate the fastest possible empty kilns. THE NUMBERS DO NOT REPRESENT TYPICAL KILN FIRING TIMES WITH A LOAD. Your kiln can take considerably longer (as much as 4 times) to fire than the times shown here.

The final set point temperature is based on the specific rate of rise programmed for the last Segment. If the rate of rise changes (for instance if the kiln goes slower than the programmed rate of rise because of a heavy load or aging elements) then the final set point temperature will be recalculated by the control. This maintains the “heat-work”. The faster the rate of rise in the final Segment, the higher the set-point temperature needs to be to get the same “heat-work”. Inversely, the slower the rate of rise the lower the set-point temperature needs to be.

How to Read the Tables

Seg = Seg (this is the Seg of in the control that consists of a temperature set point, a ramp in Hours and a hold time (unusally there is no hold time).

Temp = The temperature set point in Deg F.

Rate = The Speed of firing or Ramp in Degrees F per Hour

Hours = The number of hours that that Seg is programmed to take (note that actual time can vary)

Hold = Hold time
