Never Fire Moist Greenware

All Cautions


  1. Never load moist greenware or pots in your kiln.
  2. The expanding water vapor in the ware could cause the ware to explode, damaging your kiln interior.
  3. We recommend using a dry out segment in your bisque program at 66°C (150°F). (Note that, because of the thermocouple offset programmed into our DynaTrol when we use the ceramic protection tubes, the display temperature will read 93°C (200°F) when the real temperature is 66°C (150°F)).
  4. Remember that there may be water trapped in the work even if you can't always see it. If you place a piece of greenware next to your wrist and it feels cool to the touch it probably has too much moisture in it to fire.
