Downdraft Gas Kilns
What makes DownDraft gas kilns different is the fact that the kiln’s exhaust and intake are located at the bottom of the kiln. They require a chimney or stack to induce enough draft (hence the name DownDraft) to pull in the amount of fresh air needed for combustion.
Check out some of the downdraft gas kiln’s features:
- Fire to cone 10, 2350° F
- Can be built with brick walls
- Can be built of fiber walls, which allow the kiln to heat up and cool down faster than brick walls
- Frames of the Olympic downdraft gas kilns are built of heavy angle iron and metal tubing
- Kiln walls are 4 ½” insulating brick with 1” ceramic fiberboard and 1” air space created by the tube frame
- The exterior of the downdraft gas kilns are durable stainless steel
- Fiber and brick DownDrafts are built with double insulated floors, consisting of brick and ceramic fiberboard.
The additional strength and insulation enables the kiln to fire at high temperatures, and to maintain those temperatures, without damage or deterioration. The roofs of the Olympic DownDraft gas kilns are designed with bolt in pyro-block modules for energy efficiency and easy repairs.
The DownDraft Car kiln s have a heavy gauge iron track for rolling the kiln floor and door in and out of the kiln chamber.
Olympic DownDraft gas kilns are built with high efficiency Venturi burners located underneath the kiln chamber, and have option of being built on the side of the kiln chamber.
Forced air burners are an available option.
