Model - SQUARE 149GFE 240 or 208 volt, inside dimensions: 14 ½” x 14 ½” wide x 9" deep, fires to 1700°F
Glass firing kilns are used for fusing and forming of glass shapes and heat-treating. 240-208 volt glass fusing models are equipped with a lid element for the fusing segment of the glass firing and body elements for the ramping up-down and annealing segments of the firing. An infinite switch controls the intensity of the heat coming from the lid element. If the switch remains in the OFF position, only the body elements will heat the kiln. If the infinite switch is turned to the High position, all elements, both body and lid, heat at the same intensity. The kiln operator may choose to lessen the intensity of lid element by turning the switch down. Models come equipped with pilot light, 18” tall metal stand or frame, stainless steel jacket, and Bartlett Instruments 3 Key electronic controller. Controller data is entered by scrolling through the up and down arrows for the desired temperature for ramp-hold programming.
Top loading Glass fusing kilns come in cylindrical and square styles and have the option of top loading, clamshell loading or top and clamshell loading. Glass kiln models 20” wide or larger are equipped with a lid lift assist for easy opening and closing of the kiln lid; however, smaller width kilns have the option of adding a lid lift if needed. 240-208 volt glass fusing kilns come equipped with pilot light, a tall 18” metal stand or tall 18" frame, stainless steel jacket, and Bartlett 3 Key electronic controller. Controller data is entered by scrolling up and down arrows for the desired temperature for ramp/hold programming. Included in the kiln package are peephole plugs, lid wedge, instruction manuals, warranty card. Two-year Kiln Limited Warranty.
Additional options include upgrading to the 12 key digital RTC-1000 controller for more ramp-hold user programs and multiple features including delay start, preheat, skip step and many more for precise firings every time. Messages and information are available for reviewing a firing profile before or during the firing, and for viewing the current segment the firing is in. Other options include lid lift assist for models 18” wide or smaller, Type S thermocouple, flash arm, quartz glass viewing windows, lid elements in quartz rods, venting, and more!
