All Cautions

POST FIRING CAUTIONS

  1. Thermocouples (in automatic kilns) must be inserted into the kiln at least 1" (2.5 cm) in from the inside surface of the kiln.
  2. They must protrude into the kiln itself because if the measuring tip of the thermocouple is buried inside the insulation the thermocouple will measure a lower temperature than the actual temperature in the kiln.
  3. This could cause an overfire of the kiln.
  4. Replace thermocouples once they are no longer reasonably accurate.
