Ceramic Element Connections

Easy, Secure Connections

  • Elements are twisted around stainless steel screws mounted on solid ceramic terminal blocks.
  • The entire assembly is mechanically secure and solid.

Wide Electrical Contact

  • All contact between elements and wire lugs is over a wide surface of heavily torqued stainless steel washers.

No Special Tools

  • Wires are not crimped to element ends as in some other brands.
  • This means you can change elements yourself without buying an expensive tool or hiring a kiln repair person.

Easier Than Crimped Connectors

  • Ask anyone who has changed an element in both an L&L kiln and other kilns with crimped connections.
  • Many repair people tell us it takes 3 hours to change elements in a other kilns vs. 30 minutes in an L&L.
  • You need to be either very strong or else use a large special crimping tool to properly crimp a terminal.
  • If you don’t get it just right you can ruin the element and wire end.
  • Also every time you change an element you shorten the connecting wire.

Used on Most L&L Kilns with these Exceptions

  • 480 volt kilns which require more terminals than are available on these ceramic terminal blocks.
  • Powered Bottoms
  • Easy-Load kilns use a similar ceramic terminal
