In some places the electrical power is very inconsistent with power outages, interruptions, blackouts, voltage spikes, voltage drops, or excessive environmental line noise (such as is caused by lar
Automatic kilns and even manual kilns shut off by the use of cones are never as accurate as the human eye. 99.999% of time this is fine.
When in doubt it is almost always better to fire slower than faster.
A slower firing allows for more time for water vapor, fumes and gasses to escape from the body of the clay body.
Available only during a hold period. This option allows you to add time in 5 minute increments to a hold (soak) period.
Change of Program During Firing: When firing you can alter the program anytime. You must press START/STOP, then reprogram, then press “Start”.
A customer asks: I would like to program my kiln to heat to Cone 6 then cool normally to 950°F and then hold for one hour at 950°F and then cool naturally.
The ultimate in precision firing is achieved by using the DynaTrol to control the ramping of the kiln (both up and down) but using a witness cone and your eye to control when the firing stops.
