ALL L&L FEATURES

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.
The Quad Element System provides a massively robust element for long life under production conditions. Standard on eQuad-Pro and JH Series. Optional on most other kiln series.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Arched sides on DaVinci kilns are very strong and promote good air circulation
A unique welded rigid frame supports the entire lid on a DaVinci kiln.
Welded heavy-duty stand supports heavy loads. Alumized top sheet reflects heat.
Arched roofs are the time-proven way to build a long-lasting front-loading kiln
A thick welded steel case holds up better to corrosion over time.

Performance

K23 firebrick combines good insulation with strength
This is for cooling purposes and does not replace the Vent-Sure automatic kiln vent.

Ease of Use

Feather-light spring hinge allows full access without a side support bar - for easy loading. Standard on all 10 and 12 sided polygonal kilns.
Even the largest DaVinci lids can easily be lifted by one person.
Two strong door latches secure the door. They are adjustable.
This is used on top-loading kilns that are 8 sided or less

Control

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.
Type S Platinum Thermocouples are the best high temperature thermocouple for ceramics
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 included on most kilns. Also see Genesis Touch Screen Option with Phone App for Remote Monitoring.
No need to pay extra for this important feature! Zone control on an electric kiln gives you the utmost in 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.
Angled control panel makes viewing control and programming easier.
Four-Key Control that Redefines Simplicity • Perfect for Schools & Hobbyists
Control panel pulls down easily and remain 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.
Each kiln sections plugs into the Jupiter control panel. Easy to remove or change kiln configuration.
Wiring is neatly laid out using National Electrical Code and UL499 Standards
DaVinci Panels are wired to industrial standards with good clean wire layout.
The control panel is mounted on a stand away form the kiln.
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.
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.
