EnviroVent 2 is a Downdraft Ventilation System designed to extract fumes from your electric kiln and vent them outdoors before they have a chance to enter the room. Because it is a DownDraft Ventilation System the EnviroVent 2 also improves the firing atmosphere in the kiln while it is protecting you from the odorous fumes that can be emitted from certain clay bodies and glazes when they are fired.
The Skutt EnviroLink
WHAT IS THE ENVIROLINK?
EnviroLink is an electrical switching device that can be controlled by an automatic kiln to deter-mine when a vent turns on and off. The EnviroLink was developed by engineers at Skutt to provide kiln owners with the ability to automatically control the Skutt EnviroVent and EnviroVent 2. The device utilizes a programmable power output (OUTPUT 4) on Skutt KilnMaster and GlassMaster Controllers to turn on/off the EnviroVent and EnviroVent 2. The kiln may be programmed to control the vent during any segment of a Ramp/Hold Program or during preset times of a ConeFire or Glass Fire Mode program.
The Easy View is a new optional feature that makes it easier to see and program your controller by angling the touchpad up. It can be added to any KilnMaster kiln in minutes without having to remove any wires from the controller. The suggested retail price is only $30.00. Ask your distributor how to get one for your kiln today.
Type S thermocouple-
Cone 10 - This thermocouple can hold up to the high demands of High Fire applications firing after firing.
Accurate - Type S wire is the most accurate thermocouple wire available.
Responsive - The low mass ceramic protection tube insures that this thermocouple remains responsive.
Long Life - This thermocouple does not degrade and will virtually last forever if not broken.
No Drifting - Since this thermocouple does not degrade it will not drift.
Sealed tube - Protects probe from kiln atmosphere .
Recommended Applications - High Fire Ceramics and Applications where high precision is critical.
All Skutt Kilns
All Skutt 10 and 12-sided kilns come with a Lid Lifter as a standard feature. These spring-assisted lids are so light you can lift them with a finger. Compare them to other brands and you will feel the difference.
Every Skutt lid is coated with a strong, long lasting refractory cement that prevents brick dust from falling into the kiln and improves the lids structural integrity. Since both sides are coated, the lid can be reversed for double the life.
A 2-position, lid brace is included for additional safety and convenience.
Energy-saving 3" brick
• Recommended for high-fire models. • Comes standard on 1627, 1227, and 614 models. • Remember this will decrease the chamber size on some models by 1". • 3² brick will increase the temperature rating on some models. • Kilns will cool slower.
Kanthal APM elements are different from standard elements because they are manufactured from powdered material. This new technology provides improved dimensional stability at higher temperatures which results in significantly longer element life. If you are firing Crystal Glazes or consistently firing Cone 10 materials, these elements are highly recommended.
Triangular Posts and Shelves
A furniture kit is used to create shelf layers inside your kiln. Although the contents of shelf kits vary depending on the kiln model all shelf kits will contain a selection of shelves and 1 or more post assortment kits. Furniture kits for kilns with 8 sides or less will come with 18 posts, 3 each in lengths 1" thru 6". Kits for larger kilns will come with 36 posts. All furniture kits are designed to fire to Cone 10 temperatures.
KM-1 Wall Mount Controllers
KM-1 Wall mounted Controller 50 AMP single phase
KM-1 Wall mounted Controller 40 AMP 3phase
A blank ring is a 4.5" extension ring that may be added to most Skutt KilnSitter models to increase the height and overall capacity of the kiln. On multi-section kilns, the ring fits between the master section and the top section. Due to the fact that blank rings increase the volume of the kiln without adding more power, the maximum Cone rating when fired with a blank ring is reduced to cone 1. The ring can be added or removed when necessary.
The Zone Control feature was designed for users who require tight uniformity of heat throughout the kiln. This feature incorporates thermocouples in each kiln section so each section can be monitored and controlled independently. This can be very helpful for applications where it is not possible to load the kiln evenly. The increased control can extend firing times in certain situations. Consult your distributor for more details.
Computer Interface System (C.I.S.)
This system allows you to program, monitor and graph the firings of up to 10 KilnMaster controlled kilns using a PC. Installation is simple and quick. The system includes a CD with the software and all of the necessary hardware to connect your computer to the KM controller.
