Dual Media Kilns
Dual-Function Kilns For SaleSoul Ceramics introduces an innovative range of Dual-Function Kilns, masterfully crafted for artists who work with both glass and ceramics. These kilns are uniquely designed to adeptly manage the distinct temperature requirements for various artistic processes. They are capable of reaching the intense heat necessary for ceramics and pottery, going over 2100°F, and are equally efficient for the delicate process of glass fusing.
Key Features to Consider
Versatile Temperature Settings: Our Dual-Function Kilns come with a range of temperature settings. They can handle low-fire projects for materials like TerraCotta (up to 2100°F, Cone 04-06), medium-fire applications (around 2200°F, Cone 06-8), and even high-fire tasks for materials like stoneware and porcelain (2300-2350°F, Cone 8-10). This versatility also extends to glasswork, including the capacity to work with BoroSilicate/Pyrex glass.
Element Design: The innovative design of these kilns incorporates separate elements for different materials. While ceramic firing activates the side elements, glass fusing primarily uses the top element. It's important to note that when firing ceramics, the top element, though not in use, will still experience indirect heating, which might influence its longevity.
Energy Considerations: Expect variations in power consumption with these kilns. Ceramic firing, due to higher temperature requirements, tends to consume more energy compared to glass fusing.
Loading Techniques: Flexibility in loading is another key aspect. While ceramic firing allows for multiple shelves to be stacked, glass projects usually require a different approach, typically involving a single shelf placed at an optimal distance from the top element.
