This Cone 10-firing kiln’s wide range gives the unit the versatility to handle a variety of tasks from creating stoneware to overglaze projects to porcelain and even earthenware.
The HF-101’s 5.06 cubic foot firing chamber is insulated by 4.5 inches of combined insulation. This level of protection provides the kiln with a low-radiant temperature that creates efficient heating and a safe environment in studios and classrooms. The chamber’s firing heat comes from the high-end 14-gauge Kanthal wires, housed deep within the walls of the chamber. The heating elements are easily removable.
The unit is constructed with 11-gauge welded solid steel frames in the front and durable 1/8-inch frames of welded steel in the rear. 18-gauge steel shells fortify the entirety of the unit.
Ceramic rope rounds the chamber lid, creating a tight seal to prevent head from escaping. The lid itself is supported by refractory material that helps to keep heat inside the chamber. The lid is spring balanced, making it easy to open and close.
AMACO offers a five-year warranty with this unit, and the option to control the firing with either the Select Fire computer or the Kiln Sitter/Limit Timer/Pyrometer unit.
