Sheffield Pottery Paragon Bull Elk KilnThe Sheffield Pottery Bull Elk Front Loading Kiln is a cone 10 kiln designed for pottery and ceramic studios. This school and commercial kiln is suitable for glass arts as well as metal heat treating applications. And considering its features, it is surprisingly affordable.
Expert Kiln SupportFits through 36" door!
Can fit through 34" by taking off handles and back element cover.
Includes door safety shutoff.

The front loading kiln includes a 14” stand with casters. The stand raises the kiln firebrick bottom hearth to 24”.
The floor is 4.5" of firebrick.
The 4" walls are very well insulated. They are 3" of firebrick and 1" of super insulating block insulation.
200, 208, 220 volts, single or 3 phase: same price as 240 volts.
480 Volt / 3 phase configuration is available with up-charge.

The cone 10 kiln interior is 16.67 cubic feet: 24”W x 24”D x 50”H
The external kiln height includes the 14” stand with casters.
Door opens a few degrees past 90.

Sheffield Pottery Bull Elk Front Loading Kiln Extra insulation saves energy and lengthens cooling. The 4” thick walls, top and door are made of 3” firebrick backed by 1” of ceramic fiber block insulation. The floor is 4 ½” thick firebrick. The extra insulation not only saves energy but also cools the kiln slowly without having to turn the elements back on. This gives the micro-crystalline structure and color of the glaze sufficient time for full development. Cool slowly to achieve dramatic shifts in glaze color such as iron reds and enjoy the richer look of gas firing.
The ample power and extra insulation of this commercial kiln results in long element life, because the elements do not “struggle” to reach high temperatures. Dropped, recessed grooves seat the industrial-gauge elements.

The elements are “tuned,” which means hotter elements are placed in areas of the firing chamber that need more heat. This results in superior heat distribution.
The Sentry 2.0 digital controller is standard on the Sheffield Pottery Bull Elk front loading kiln. Results are repeatable from one firing to the next with astounding accuracy, making this kiln perfect for schools. The solid-state controller continually monitors the firing. You can opt to upgrade to the Sentinel Touch Screen Controller.

Do you ever wonder how much electricity your kiln uses? The digital controller will figure this for you; merely program the kiln’s wattage and your cost of electricity into the controller. Learn to conserve energy by experimenting with firing speed, load density, etc.
The Type-K thermocouple, hermetically sealed for accuracy, is standard. We also recommend the optional Type-S for stoneware and porcelain.
Long-lasting mercury relays power the elements. A bank of built-in NEC/UL compliant high-amperage fuses protects the kiln and circuit wiring. Potters who struggle with top-loading kilns will enjoy the front-loading Sheffield Pottery Bull Elk Kiln. The door swings open wide on a heavy hinges with sealed bearings.

The ventilated switch box is generously louvered for air circulation for the long life of the electrical components. Yet dust is kept to a minimum.
The stand is built in and comes at no extra charge and includes casters!

Order the optional Orton Vent Master, which mounts to the back of the kiln.
