The AMACO HF-97 Kiln is a popular choice for educators and artists looking for a medium-sized floor model that is able to offer guaranteed safety and efficiency for long-term use in high volume environments.
Part of the Master Kiln Series, this is a top-loading unit that is capable of firing to Cone 10. This model offers optimal efficiency for projects that involve earthenware firing and overglaze decorating, as well as porcelain and stoneware materials. Because it is well-insulated (at 4.5"), this kiln has a lower radiant temperature, but also offers increased firing efficiency in order to keep up with multiple projects and higher volume production requirements.
High quality Kanthal 14 gauge element wires can be securely kept witihin deep grooves built into the walls of the firing chamber. Wires can also easily be removed if needed.
Select FireTM computer control is available with this model. Additional options include Limit Timer + Pyrometer, and Kiln-Sitter.
