Model e28T-3 Easy-Fire Automatic Kiln with Multi-Program Three-Zoned Genesis Touchscreen control mounted in an easy-open, cool-firing, piggyback control panel that is angled for easy viewing of control. Kiln comes with hard ceramic element holders, protected thermocouples, a strong solid-top stand, an easy-lift spring hinge, and solid peephole plugs. 28" diameter by 27" high (10.2 cubic feet). 3" K23 brick. NEMA 6-50 single phase or 15-50 three-phase 6-foot power cord included. There are three thermocouples. No charge for 3-phase versions. C-MET-us listed in the USA & Canada. Cone 10 for all three phase models- see below for single phase. 

Note about e28T-3 Easy-Fire Kiln on 1-phase power

The e28T-3 kiln is only rated for Cone 8 when the power supply is 240 volts, 1 phase. It is only rated for Cone 5 when the power supply is 208 volts, 1 phase.
A cone rating should be several cones higher than the cone you plan to fire to. Elements in a kiln that is rated for cone 8 will not last very long when firing to cone 5 or 6, especially with heavy loads.
That said - if you answer yes to any of the following questions, you probably want to go with a more powerful L&L, like the eQ2827-3. This kiln has more power (watts) in the single-phase versions than the e28T-3 and will consistently deliver the power you need to reach up to Cone 10.
  1. Do you fire to Cone 5 or 6 at least twice a month?
  2. Would you fire with more than 3 layers of kiln shelves in this kiln?
  3. Can you get a larger circuit breaker? (80 amp breaker for 240 volts, 1 phase OR 90 amp breaker for 208 volts, 1 phase)
NOTE: If the largest circuit breaker you can have is a 60 amp breaker on 240 volts, 1 phase power, you should either get a smaller L&L- like the e23T-3, or count on changing the elements more often than normal. Another help is to get the Quad element option. With the Quad element option, the elements will last longer but you won't get any more power in the kiln (so you could still get slow firings).

Control

The Genesis control includes a touchscreen interface and WIFI connectivity. The intuitive interface is easy to use and understand. A free phone app allows you to monitor your kiln remotely.
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.

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.

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.
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.

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.

Safety

CERTIFIED SAFE. Most L&L kilns are MET listed to UL499 standards. Listed kilns include Easy-Fire Pottery Kilns, eQuad-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.

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 galvannealed steel construction with multiple bends for extra strength, locking swivel casters, integrated vent collection box support, and guide posts 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 the control.
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 heat-resistant gloves for 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

ISPM-15 Skids ready for export. Accessories are normally packed on top of the kiln.

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.

Controls

Traditional 24-button Keypad control. This control can be substituted for any Genesis full-sized control.
