Crucible 18 or Color Pot

Price: $2,179.00
Designed to fire kiln up to 2300°F to melt the cullet, then cool down to 1800°F to squeeze the glass, then work at 2050°F to 2100°F for the gathers. When between sessions, hold the kiln at 1800°F, then turn back to work at the gathering temperature. This kiln comes standard with the AF3P Orton 3-button controller, however you have the option to upgrade to the Orton AutoFire 12-key controller or the the TAP preprogrammed digital controller.

Max Temperature 2300F and Max Working Temperature 2150. Coils in crucible kilns tend to last 3 to 6 months and are not warranted

Important Note: Electric Crucible Kilns are designed to melt cullet and not to make glass from batch!!!  Making batch usually causes the thermocoupler and the kiln brick to crystalize and deteriate quickly from the caustic fumes that are given off.
