We build front loading and top loading annealing ovens, fusing kilns, bell kilns, shuttle kilns and car kilns. All ovens are heavily built with square tube steel and angle iron stands and frames. Boxes are made from 16 gauge galvanized sheet metal. Stainless steel and aluminum boxes are also available where corrosion is an issue, such as ovens used with plaster molds. Elements are made from durable Kanthal A1 wire.
OVEN INSULATION OPTIONS
shim
All of our ovens are available with brick and/or high temperature board interior insulation—most ovens are a combination of both. Board offers a more reflective insulating surface with less thermal mass than brick. Board ovens heat up and cool down faster than brick ovens resulting in lower operating costs, however brick is more resistant to abrasion and impact than board.
 
We often build ovens with modifications to suit our customers’ needs. There are many more configurations than we can list here. We will be happy to discuss various options available to you.

Fusing Ovens

These fusing ovens are like upside down top loaders — the box hinges up instead of the lid. This configuration allows easy access to the work on a table like surface. The interior insulation is high temperature fiber board. This board is a great heat reflector and facilitates rapid heating cycles. The elements are installed in quartz tubes on the ceiling. The quartz tubes prevent element scale falling on the work below. The boxes of these ovens are fabricated from aluminum and all the metal around the openings is heavy stainless steel. Levelers are standard; wheels are optional.

Oven Controls
There are many temperature controls and systems available, and we will install or configure your oven for any control you would like. We most commonly install and use Digitry and Partlow controls. Most glass workers are familiar with the Digitries. We have used Partlows for 20 years and have found them to be reliable and easy to use as well. Partlow also has excellent customer support and warranty backup.
See Combustion Control for temperature control options & pricing.
