Control

GREAT EASY-TO-USE CONTROL. DynaTrol with 4 Easy-Fire programs (Slow Bisque, Fast Bisque, Slow Glaze, Fast Glaze), 6 custom programs, PreHeat, Delay, Program, Segment Review, and Diagnostics. Zone control is included on most kilns. Also see Genesis Touch Screen Option with Phone App for Remote Monitoring.
EVEN FIRING. MAKES LOADING MORE FLEXIBLE. ADJUSTS FOR ELEMENT AGING. No need to pay extra for this important feature! Zone control on an electric kiln gives you the utmost controllable temperature uniformity. The kiln control separately measures temperatures in the bottom, middle, and top of the ceramic kiln and automatically adjusts the heat output of three kiln zones during the entire glaze or bisque firing.
EASY TO SEE AND PROGRAM THE CONTROL. Angled control panel makes viewing control and programming easier.
WHY WOULDN'T YOU HAVE AN ON-OFF SWITCH? All L&L Kilns come with an on-off switch and panel-mounted control fuse. We do not rely on kiln control to keep the kiln off.
HEAVY-DUTY. Power Relays are mercury-free to comply with increasing regulations and concerns about mercury. Solid State Contactors are available as an option on most L&L Kilns.

Serviceability

THIS IS THE SAFEST AND EASIEST KILN TO WORK ON. The Control panel pulls down easily and remains perpendicular to the element box for very easy access. All wiring is neatly laid out in a professional and industrial way with color coding and numbering for easy repair and troubleshooting. Best of all the double panel design results in cooler panels and longer control and relay life.
EASY TO MOVE ANYWHERE. Sectional kiln construction makes kilns easy to move, set up and disassemble for maintenance.
OOPS... JUST TURN IT OVER. The bottom can be easily reversed in case of a firing mishap.

Durability

KEEP YOUR WORK CLEAN. Ceramic protection tubes protect the end of the thermocouple. Keeps the oxide dust from the thermocouple tip from getting into the kiln while firing.
HEAVY-DUTY. Thick 8 gauge thermocouples last a long time. Special Limit of Error to ANSI MC96.1 specifications is used.
NO PINS TO REPLACE AND DAMAGE YOUR FIREBRICK! Durability, Repairability, Better Heat Transfer. The smooth, hard surface of the inside ceramic channel allows the elements to expand and contract freely. The dense ceramic holders extend element life because they do not insulate the hot elements from the kiln interior.
STOP BREAKING PEEPHOLE PLUGS. Solid large non-tapered peepholes allow a wider view into the kiln. The peephole plugs are made from solid ceramic and are not as fragile as hollow-type plugs used on competitors' kilns.
NO CRIMPING! EASY TO CHANGE. Industrial-grade ceramic terminal blocks make changing elements easy. All contact between elements and wire lugs is over a wide surface of heavily torqued stainless steel washers. 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.
FULL SUPPORT STAND. Aluminized stands are solid and corrosion-resistant. They offer solid support under the kiln - unlike spot-welded angle stands that are common in the industry.
Special brick coating hardens and seals brick for durability and cleaner operation.
PROTECT AND SUPPORT. 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.
Three case clamps per 9" high kiln section are redundant safety for your L&L kiln.
KEEP YOUR KILN LOOKING NEW. Corrosion resistant materials and methods result in a long-lasting kiln.

Ease of Use

WIDE OPEN - EASY-TO-LOAD. A feather-light spring hinge allows full access without a side support bar - for easy loading. Standard on all 10 and 12-sided polygonal kilns.

Performance

K23 firebrick combines good insulation with strength

Support

THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT WHEN YOU CONSIDER THE ELECTRONIC CONTROL. Most L&L Kilns have a three-year limited warranty.
LET OUR EXPERIENCE WORK FOR YOU. The combined experience at L&L Kilns in kilns, ceramics, electrical engineering, and process engineering is unsurpassed. We work as a team to help you get your answers and help.
LIKE HAVING A KILN LIBRARY AT YOUR FINGERTIPS. The combined experience at L&L Kilns in kilns, ceramics, electrical engineering, and process engineering is unsurpassed. We provide a visual parts list with photographs, part numbers, prices, and helpful information to reduce confusion when ordering parts. We also include well-vetted information and wisdom from our industry partners to ensure our customers have access to all the basic information necessary to be successful from the first firing.

Safety

CERTIFIED SAFE. Most L&L kilns are MET listed to UL499 standards. Listed kilns include Easy-Fire Pottery Kilns, eQad-Pro Professional Kilns, eFL Front-Loading Kilns, Jupiter Sectional Kilns, DaVinci Square & Rectangular Production Kilns, School-Master School Kilns, Fuego Home Craft Kilns, and Doll-Test Kilns. Easy-Load Production Front-Loading kilns are MET-Us Listed for the USA only.

Controls

The new Genesis control from Bartlett includes a touch screen interface and WIFI connectivity added to the proven software of the DynaTrol. A phone app allows you to monitor your kiln remotely.

Thermocouples

Type S Platinum Thermocouples are recommended for high fire applications. NOTE: Price of upgrade is per each thermocouple.
Pyrocil thermocouples are sensitive but limited to about 2200°F but offer greater sensitivity to temperature change and so may be appropriate in applications below 2200°F that require sensitivity. NOTE: Price of upgrade is per each thermocouple.

Miscellaneous

L&L's rolling kiln stand features heavy gauge (14 ga) galvannealed steel construction with multiple bends for extra strength, steel swivel locking casters, integrated vent collection box support, and guide rails for the kiln. Each size is fitted to the kiln.

Vents

A Critical component in the longevity of your kiln!The Vent-Sure automatic kiln vent helps prevent corrosion on the inside and outside of your kiln.
The Vent Control allows you to automatically control the operation of the Vent-Sure kiln vent with one of the outputs from the DynaTrol (or Genesis).
The Vent Doubler allows you to use one vent on two kilns.

Kiln Furniture

Kiln furniture kits are the recommended set of ceramic shelves, posts and kiln wash that go with each kiln model. These are for loading the work in the kiln.
These safety gloves are perfect for handling hot work when unloading a kiln.

Power

This option helps protect your control from electrical noise

Shipping/Crating

Export crates, ISPM-15 Skids for export, and special pallet designs for unloading Easy-fire kilns without a forklift.

Elements

The combination of 1/2" diameter element coils, the doubled surface area of the Quad element design, and superior heat transfer of L&L's patented ceramic element holders, make this the best element system in the world today.
