The kiln is equipped with high performance, hard-wearing infra-red quartz elements and well-designed insulation. It has a fast react thermocouple and is also fast cooling. The elements are located in the lid for even heating; this also makes them easy to replace if required. The elements are switched off when the lid is opened by an automatic safety switch.
The lid is made from stainless steel: powder coated and oven baked. It is lined out with press cut, non-ceramic fibre. This eliminates the risk of brick dust particles dropping from the lid, making for a very clean firing environment. The lid construction enables the Profuser to retain the heat when needed but still release heat rapidly during the all-important cooldown period.
The lid stays open once lifted, leaving you with both hands free to load or unload the kiln. There are also two handles for left or right hand lifting and a catch to hold the lid closed.
In the centre of the lid is a large spy/vent hole with spring return, anti dust flap - great for keeping an eye on your firing.
The base section of the chamber is made from lightweight refractory brick and is a flat floor without recess, making loading and unloading easy.
The Kilncare Pro-Fuser comes fitted with the KCR16 controller, and upgrade from the previous KCR2. It has 10 fully adjustable programs, each with 16 segments. Each segment consists of 1 x rate of climb, 1 x target temperature and 1 x dwell/hold.
