When average isn’t good enough

 

Built in the heart of The Potteries, the IKON has Ceramics running through its veins

 

The IKON has unbeatable performance, reliability and heritage and that is what makes it the PREMIUM kiln.

  

Here are its list of features which is totally unrivalled.

 

  • ·        416mm diameter x 330mm.

  • ·        46 Litre chamber capacity.

  • ·        3kw with standard three pin plug top fitted.

  • ·        1315c maximum temperature.

  • ·        Triple section lid seal including anti draught rope seal, brick to brick and lid insert.

  • ·        Three layer chamber insulation including Micropore “super” insulation.

  • ·        Double layer floor insulation with full stainless steel under plate.

  • ·        Lower inlet port with shutter raised from the kiln floor to avoid debris blockage.

  • ·        Upper exhaust port with shaped chimney and multi position shutter.

  • ·        Lid and chamber made from 100% 316 brushed stainless steel.

  • ·        Strong skeleton sub frame to absorb lid lifting and closing pressure.

  • ·        Twin gas spring lid assist. One on either side to make lifting and closing an easy operation and avoid lid twist.

  • ·        Twin lid clamps. One of either side to keep even lid pressure when closed, with padlock locking facility.

  • ·        Kanthal A1 elements.

  • ·        Low rear mounted and heavily ventilated power component box to keep the major components cool and away from residual heat generated by the chamber during firing.

  • ·        Solid State Relay control switching for maximum reliability due to no moving parts and also near silent operation.

  • ·        Element connections housed separately from power components to ensure cool running.

  • ·        Dual contactor over fire protection circuit

  • ·        Dual channel lid safety cut off switch

  • ·        Dual contactor lid cut off circuit.

  • ·        KCR32C 16 program, 32 segment controller.

  • ·        KCR32C can be hand held to avoid kneeling by the kiln to set and program.

  • ·        Keypad lock, power used, over fire protection, program pause, segment advance and 4 day delay are all features of the KCR32C.

  • ·        Twin rear solid castors.

  • ·        Twin front swivel and lockable castors.

  • ·        36 month guarantee on all parts excluding the elements.

  •  Built by Kilncare in Stoke on Trent.

 

 

Machined lid insert of three section seal.

undefined

 

The IKON has a unique three section lid seal that massively improves heat retention.
The first section is a machined insert in the brick lid that puts a brake on the heat before it reaches the second section, a traditional brick on brick contact which is what the majority of top loaders rely on as their only seal.
Section three is an outer anti-draught rope lining around the outside of the chamber that traps in any remaining heat that makes it through the first two sections of the seal.

 

Strong skeleton sub frame.

undefined

 

The IKON is ultra strong due to the skeleton sub frame that the chamber sits on. A common issue with top loaders is the pressure and movement that is generated as the lid is open and closed and ultimately this will add strains to the chamber that can cause damage.

The skeleton sub frame effectively leaves the chamber free to sit there and simply do its planned job of heating the ware inside whilst the skeleton does all of the physical work.

 

Lockable swivel castors

 

undefined

 

The kiln sits on heavy duty castors. Two fixed wheel at the rear and two lockable and swivel castors at the front.

 

Twin gas spring lid lifts.

undefined

 

The lid of the IKON is lifted with a gas spring on either side so that the pressure of lifting the lid is even across it and so vastly reducing twist and cross pressure on the brickwork. As mentioned previously, this is helped by the skeleton sub frame.
Twin gas springs ensure that the lid weight is counteracted to such a degree that even if the lid is accidentally knocked whilst in the vertical position, its decent will be controlled and not reult in brickwork damage.

 

Chamber exhaust shutter.

undefined

 

Whilst chamber exhausts are common place on top loaders, the IKON is unique as it has a shutter that can vary the effectiveness of the exhaust, which is also larger than most, as well as close it all together when the efficiency of the kiln is most needed. This increases the efficiency of the kiln as it retains its heat when it most needs it.

 

Low level cool power panel.

undefined

 

The electrical camponents of the kiln are mounted at the rear of the kiln at low level. The mounting panel is highly ventillated and there is also an air space between the panel and the kiln chamber.
The ensures that the electrical components of the kiln are kept at minimum temperature which in turn vastly extends the life span of the components.

 

Inside this panel is the Solid State Relay which enables the kiln to have optimum control and due to there being no moving components in the Solid State Relay, there is no wear so ensuring maximum reliablity. No moving parts also means that the kiln is near silent in operation apart from the traditional buzz of the elements.

 

KCR32C

 

undefined undefined

 

The IKON is controlled by the easy to use KCR32C.
The controller not only is easy to use but has huge capabilities.
It has 16 fully adjustable programs then can be pre-set to any firing that is required or the pre-set programs can be used. Each program has 32 segments, each segment comprises of a ramp speed, a target temperature and a soak period. This capacity allows the IKON to not only be used for ceramics but also can be used for prolonged glass firings without the need for an expensive controller upgrade.


The controller can also be set to run as low as 0.1 degrees per hour, has a delayed start of up to 4 days, will show the amount of power that has been used in the previous firing which tells you exactly how much that firing has cost, lockable keypad, program pause, segment advance facility and obviously has all of the standard safety features that are expected from a modern controller.
In the event of a fault the controller emits and audible alarm signal.
The KCR32C can also be set in C or F.

 

One of the controllers really strong features is that it mounts into an holster on the side of the kiln and so means that the controller can be set and used without the need for the user to kneel down at the side of the kiln. The makes the IKON much more user freindly.
