Control

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. Also see Genesis Touch Screen Option with Phone App for Remote Monitoring
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.
Each kiln sections plugs into the Jupiter control panel. Easy to remove or change kiln configuration.
Wiring is neatly laid out using National Electrical Code and UL499 Standards
Ceramic protection tubes protect the end of the thermocouple.
Thick 8 gauge thermocouples last a long time. Special Limit of Error to ANSI MC96.1 specifications is used.
Power Relays are mercury-free to comply with increasing regulation and concern about mercury in schools. Solid State Contactors are available as an option on most L&L Kilns.
All L&L Kilns come with an on-off switch

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.
Solid large non-tapered peepholes allow a wider view into the kiln.
Industrial grade ceramic terminal blocks make changing elements easy.
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.
Special brick coating hardens and seals brick for durability and cleaner operation.
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.
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.

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.

Performance

K23 firebrick combines good insulation with strength

Serviceability

Sectional kiln construction make Jupiter kilns easy to move, set up and disassemble for maintenance. Kiln Sections all plug into a separate control panel making the kiln easy to take apart and reconfigure.

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.

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. NOTE: Price of upgrade is per each thermocouple.
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. NOTE: Price of upgrade is per each thermocouple.

Vents

A Critical component in the longevity of your kiln!The Vent-Sure automatic kiln vent helps prevent corrosion on the inside and outside of your kiln.
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).
The Vent Doubler allows you to use one vent on two kilns.

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.
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. A phone app allows you to monitor your kiln remotely.
Solid State Relays are quiet and result in longer element life because the switching time is so fast the elements don’t heat and cool as much the way the will with regular mechanical contactors. The whole system includes heat sinks, special fast acting fuses, cooling fan and extra safety relays.
Electronic High Limit Back Up Control acts as an upper limit back up to the main control. Back up contactors are also available.
Control, monitor and record data for up to 10 kilns from your computer for a one-time price.
The Eurotherm 2604 is an industrial-grade PID control with two or three zone capability built in.

Power

Powered bottoms increase power and can aid uniformity in large kilns
This option helps protect your control from electrical noise

Miscellaneous

L&L's rolling kiln stand features heavy gauge (14 ga) galvannealed steel construction with multiple bends for extra strength, steel swivel locking casters, integrated vent collection box support, and guide rails for the kiln. Each size is fitted to the kiln.
Unpowered rings can extend the height of our Jupiter kilns.
This special Seismic Kiln Rack and Brace is designed to prevent a kiln from falling over during an earthquake.
