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.
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.
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.
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.
Three case clamps per 9" high kiln section are redundant safety for your L&L kiln.
Corrosion resistant materials and methods result in a long-lasting 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.

Ease of Use

This is used on top-loading kilns that are 8 sided or less

Safety

Most L&L kilns are MET listed to UL499 standards. Listed kilns include Easy-Fire Pottery Kilns, Easy-Fire-XT Square 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, Doll-Test Kilns, and Liberty-Belle Craft Kilns. Easy-Load Production Front-Loading kilns are MET-Us Listed for US only.

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.
APM elements increase element life in difficult applications

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.

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 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
Liberty-Belle kilns come with a 14-30 or 14-50 plug as standard. Others are optional.

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.
