KC55 range

Kilncare built Front Loading ceramic / pottery kilns are made here in Stoke on Trent using traditional, time tested methods and techniques.

The kilns are made using the highest quality bricks and backing boards as efficiency is becoming more of an issue these days.

As with all of our kilns, function and durability take priority.

The door seal is maintained by a non-ceramic fibre rope that is set into a channel around the front face, which ensures it stays in place, unlike other methods of "Stick on" fibre seals which often tend to fall off.
The actual sealing of the door is automatically adjusted everytime the door is closed with the variable door clamps.

Variable door clamps Variable door clamps.

The Front Face itself is made from "Hard" insulation bricks to reduce the damage caused by knocks and bumps during loading.

Inset rope seal and hard brick face. Inset rope door seal and hard brick face.

All of the kiln doors in the KC 55 range are made of the same high grade insulation bricks as the chamber sides.

The elements are all made from Kanthal A1 wire, considered the best wire in the world for this application.

Each kiln is fitted with a main contactor and a policeman contactor as standard.

Kiln safety is ensured by a power switching "British Specification" interlock switch that stops the elements from receiving power when the door is opened.

The door vent hole has a lockable swing plate that locks in the bung not allowing the bung to be taken out whilst it is at temperature. This feature is a favourite of education establishments.

undefinedSplit frame option

 

The KC55 range can be specially built to be split into manageable sections if the kiln delivery includes stairs or very narrow access.
This option must be made at the point of order.

KC55 range kilns are fitted with the KCR16 controller, which offers 10 adjustable programs, start delay, power consumed meter etc.
Details of the KCR16 can be found here.

Obviously, it goes without saying that the kilns are CE.


Features

  • Larger kilns can be made in "Split Form", which enables them to be transported upstairs, through access doors and narrow corridors easily and safely.
  • None of our kilns contain Ceramic Fibre.
  • Unique electronic Heat fuse set at 50 degrees above the programmed maximum set point and secondary safety contactor fitted as standard.
  • Automatic dampers can be fitted to all Front Loading kiln as an optional extra.
  • Kilns carry a 24 month guarantee on all parts excluding the elements and heat fuse.
  • You can collect your kiln from us or we can bring the kiln to you. Ranging from a simple dispatch delivery, to far more complicated installations which may require two or more engineers.

 

Maximum temperature for all KC55 range kilns is 1300c
