A Perfect Inexpensive Kiln for Ceramic Sculpture

L&L's Pull-Apart Kiln Option utilizes a unique feature of the Jupiter kilns. Each 9" high section of the kiln plugs into a separate control panel. For the Pull-Apart versions we mount the control panel on a stand. The lid just sits on top. Each section can be unplugged and removed one at a time over a large sculptural piece.

This configuration is mostly used on Jupiter Automatic Kilns and ususally the tall 36" and 45" high models. 

It is also possible to make DaVinci square and rectangular kilns in pull apart versions.

The lid is does not come with a hinge when you get the pull-apart option. See this page for details.

Features

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.
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.
Industrial grade ceramic terminal blocks make changing elements easy.
Thick 8 gauge thermocouples last a long time. Special Limit of Error to ANSI MC96.1 specifications is used.
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.
