Quick Overview

Model - 3027E 240 or 208 volt, inside dimensions: 42" wide x 30" front-to-back x 29” deep, fires to cone 8/2300°F


Oval kilns are designed for large workloads and unusual shapes that do not fit in a cylindrical or square shape kiln.  Olympic Oval models are built with 3” brick and have a 2"
blank brick row in the first section of the kiln to protect the elements when loading and unloading the kiln.


Oval models are built with Olympic’s proven electrical box design which has heat shields with top and bottom perforations to keep the electrical components cool, and balanced heating elements insure even heating of the firing chamber under all firing conditions. Oval kilns come equipped with pilot light, metal stand, stainless steel jacket, lid lift assist, and Bartlett 3K-CF electronic controller.  Data is entered by scrolling through the up and down buttons for the desired cone fire or ramp/hold programming. Two-year Limited Kiln Warranty for cone 8 models and one-year Limited Kiln Warranty for cone 10 models.


Upgrade to the 12 key digital Bartlett V6-CF controller for more ramp-hold user programs and multiple features including delay start, preheat, cone offset, 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, viewing the current segment the firing is in, and cone table for easy look up of temperature and cone number equivalents.  Other options include Type S thermocouple, 480 volt, 2 or 3 zone control, vent, and much more! 


Furniture kits are available for the oval electric kilns; however, you can create your own furniture kit.   Oval furniture kits come with three layers of shelving with two half shelves on either end and one rectangle shelf in the center to create an oval shape and one layer of shelving.  Large square posts are included in the furniture kit in assorted sizes.

Additional options include upgrading to the 12 key digital Bartlett V6-CF controller, furniture kit and kiln vent.
 
The V6-CF controller provides more ramp-hold user programs and multiple features including delay start, preheat, cone offset, 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, viewing the current segment the firing is in, and cone table for easy look up of temperature and cone number equivalents.
 
Furniture Kits contain shelves for stacking ware, assorted square posts and kiln wash. Choose the standard furniture kit for the Olympic kiln model chosen, or build your own with shelves and posts in the quantities required. CoreLite shelves (hollow centered shelves with smooth surfaces) are available for select models.
 


During operation, the Kiln Vent system keeps the kiln under a slight negative pressure. This pulls the fumes out of the kiln and pulls in a small amount of fresh air. Firing times are essentially the same. The fumes are exhausted directly into a duct system and removed from the kiln room. Improved airflow in the kiln results in more uniform temperatures, reducing hot and cold spots.

Receiving Your Kiln

Olympic Kilns packs its merchandise so that it will arrive at its destination undamaged. Olympic orders are FOB origin when they leave our loading dock. This means we hold the carrier's receipt that your order left in good condition. We do not allow any deductions from invoices for damaged ware. It is the receiver's responsibility to understand and comply with standard shipping and receiving practices as described in this section. The carrier is responsible for transporting your freight but not for unloading it. A lift gate is required if you do not have a loading dock for shipments delivered by freight carrier. UPS and FEDEX will deliver smaller shipments to your door.

If you do not have a loading dock, a lift gate for transporting the freight from the truck to ground level is required upon delivery. You will need to request lift gate service when ordering your kiln from your Olympic dealer. Otherwise additional freight charges will be incurred upon delivery of freight. It is your responsibility to move the freight from the truck to its place of use.

Lift gates are available for kilns on 6 ft. x 6 ft. pallets or smaller. Any Commercial Glass Fusing kiln and 20 cubic feet or larger Commercial Electric and Downdraft Gas models require the customer to have a forklift that can move the kiln from the truck to the desired location. If you do not have access to a forklift, check the internet or yellow pages for small moving companies that can take the freight off the long distance carrier and move the freight to the desired location. Give any prospective mover a physical description of the kiln, the weight, and inform them that it is designed to be picked up with a pallet truck or forklift only.


Location Guidelines for Your Olympic Electric Kiln

1. Adequate space - at least 12 inches of space between the kiln and the wall. (However, for operator comfort, allow room to walk around the kiln if maintenance is required. Stackable kilns require tightening of the kiln rings while firing for proper alignment.)

2. All flammable materials such as curtains, plastics, etc. in the area of the kiln should be removed. Determine room size required from the outer dimensions of the kiln you wish to purchase. For commercial kilns, check door width, and if the door is insufficient to allow kiln entry, contact Olympic Kilns to check if modifications can be made to kiln before it is ordered and built.

3. Proper ventilation - Heat can accumulate in restricted areas above both gas and electric kilns if a hood is not used. If the kiln is gas and located in a confined area it is essential that an exhaust hood be place above the kiln and vented to the outside. This ensures removal of heat and exhaust gases, including carbon monoxide. Even if the kiln is outside be sure that the hot exhaust gases do not cause damage. Check all local requirements or codes before installation.

4. If the kiln is to be placed outside, ensure that moisture is not permitted. Use a roof over the kiln or some type water resistant tarp when the kiln is not being fired.

5. Remember to use sheet metal or non-flammable material to shim the legs when leveling the kiln.

Installation of Your Electric Kiln

Position the kiln with the observation holes clearly visible and with the electronic controller within easy reach. For kilns equipped with a power cord, place the kiln to the left of the proper electrical outlet so that the kiln can be plugged in without touching the metal jacket. Because all kilns generate heat the stand or frame should be placed on a concrete floor. Tiles or linoleum could be damaged without this precaution.

If the kiln is to be placed outside, ensure that moisture is not permitted. Use a roof over the kiln or some type water resistant tarp when the kiln is not being fired. Remember to use sheet metal or non-flammable material to shim the legs when leveling the kiln.

Electrical Hook-Up

To provide the performance it was designed to give, your new kiln must have the proper outlet and breaker to supply adequate voltage and amperage. An incorrect connection may cause disappointing or even hazardous results. A qualified electrician needs to be consulted to determine whether your wiring is adequate.

Electric kilns running on 120 volts will plug into a standard outlet but check your breaker to ensure proper performance. Standard electric kilns will run on 240 volts, single phase. If your kiln was ordered 208 volts, single or three-phase power, it will be noted on the nameplate on the kiln. Commercial electric kilns may be wired for 240, 208, 380, or 480 volts; single or three phase. Most commercial kilns require direct wiring and a receptacle outlet is not required.

Any kiln ordered three-phase will be direct wired (there is not a power cord attached to the kiln).
