Model F1418-usa Fuego Craft Kiln reaches Cone 10 with power to spare. This ideally sized home craft kiln uses a minimal 240 volt 20 amp circuit. Includes simple One-Touch™ program control. Great for apartments or houses with smaller power systems.

The FUEGO has the full range of premium L&L features such as hard ceramic element holders, protected thermocouple, full support 14 gauge aluminized steel stand, two solid peephole plugs with full 1” view, proprietary reflective brick coating that protects brick and minimizes dusting, and three-year limited warranty. Brick thickness is 3” and also includes a layer of non-RCF fiber between the stainless steel case and firebrick for extra insulation, a door shut-off switch for the elements, and an extra peephole plug in the top for venting.

Initially designed for the international market where home voltage is typically 240 volts and either 13 or 15 amps the Fuego and Robin and available for the USA market with a 16 amp 240 volt design. The USA Fuego will heat Cone 10 in 3-1/2 hours!

Control

Four-Key Control that Redefines Simplicity • Perfect for Schools & Hobbyists
Ceramic protection tubes protect the end of the thermocouple.
Thick 8 gauge thermocouples last a long time. Special Limit of Error to ANSI MC96.1 specifications is used.
Power Relays are mercury-free to comply with increasing regulation and concern about mercury. Solid State Contactors are available as an option on most L&L Kilns.
All L&L Kilns come with an on-off switch and panel mounted control fuse. We do not rely on the kiln control to keep the kiln off.

Durability

Durability, Repairability, Better Heat Transfer. The smooth, hard surface of the inside ceramic channel allows the elements to expand and contract freely. No pins! The dense ceramic holders extend element life because they do not insulate the hot elements from the kiln interior.
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 competitor's kilns.
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.
Aluminized stands are extremely strong 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.
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.
Corrosion resistant materials and methods result in a long-lasting kiln.
Three case clamps per 9" high kiln section are redundant safety for your L&L kiln.

Serviceability

Sectional kiln construction makes kilns easy to move, set up and disassemble for maintenance.
The bottom can be easily reversed in case of a firing mishap.

Support

Most L&L Kilns have a three-year limited warranty.
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 you answers and help.

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.

Thermocouples

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.

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.
