No assembly required
Solid steel case (11 gauge) with separate but attached welded square tubing stand. Feet include anchor pads with anchor points.
Heavy-duty door hinges to the left (special option allows it to be hinged on the right). Door opens all the way so that the door opening is completely unobstructed.
The welded angle-iron stand is separate but attached to the case. It includes leveling bolts and holes for anchoring the kiln to the floor.
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 (6.5" long /165mm)
Mounted on control panel
Separate attached to right side.
Control box cover is hinged for easy access to inside of control box.

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.
Arched roofs are the time-proven way to build a long-lasting front-loading kiln
A thick welded steel case holds up better to corrosion over time.

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
This is for cooling purposes and does not replace the Vent-Sure automatic kiln vent.

Ease of Use

Solid large non-tapered peepholes allow a wider view into the kiln.
Two strong door latches secure the door. They are adjustable.

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.

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.
All L&L Kilns come with an on-off switch
Shuts off power to kiln when door is open
Power Relays are mercury-free to comply with increasing regulation and concern about mercury in schools

Elements

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.

Electronic High Limit Back Up Control acts as an upper limit back up to the main control.

The Eurotherm 2604 is an indutrial-grade PID control with two or three zone cabability built in.

Power

L&L's 480 volt option can include a NEMA 1 control panel

This option helps protect your control from electrical noise
