OLYMPIC KILNS DownDraft Gas Kiln Options Vent Hood - Olympic builds vents for DownDrafts. The vents are made of stainless or galvanized steel and measure 48" x 48". Vents shipped with a kiln are palletized separately and have an approximated shipping weight of 172 lbs. You will need to purchase a double or triple walled exhaust pipe 10" in diameter to extend out of teh top of the vent and trhought the wall or ceiling to the outside.
ANAOLOG Pyrometer$105- An analog pyrometer is an available option for measuring temperature of the kiln while firing. Pryometers are not installed directly on gas kilns and the instrucent itself should be wall mounted away from thekilnto prevent damage to the instrument. Olympic's pyrometer is rate 0-2500F.
Gas Kiln Sitter System - A gas kiln sitter and limit timer is an available option for DownDrafts. The kiln sitter provides an automatic shut-off when the kiln reaches a specificed cone temperature. The limit timer will shut the kiln off at a preset time. An electric vave runs the gas kiln sitter on 120 volts.
Electronic High Limit Controller - Olympic's electronic wall unit features programming by cone number or allows you to create your own programs. Each program has eight segments with ramp/hold profiles and controlled cooling rate. The controller also features numerous means for diagnosing problems and convenient program review before or during a firing. Because the electronic controller runs in an on/off mode and is not proportional, the gas kiln operator will need to manually adjust the gas flow several times as the kiln reaches 1500F, when the controller can fully automate the firing.
Blower Burner - Forced air blower burners are available; however, the standard venturi burners work extremely well.
