Specifications and Durability

Let’s dive into the EcoKiln 46’s specifications and durability. Its triple-layer insulation, featuring lightweight high-density insulation brick, ceramic fiber board, and microporous board, ensures optimal energy efficiency. The kiln boasts a triple-layer floor and lid insulation, coupled with a double gas-sprung lid, all contributing to its remarkable energy efficiency and user-friendly design.

Notably, the EcoKiln 46 is equipped with A1 grade elements designed for longevity, offering a maximum firing temperature of 1320°C (Cone 11). Its safety features include an interlocking key and spring mechanism on the door, preventing potential damage. The lid is further secured with a padlock, establishing it as one of the safest top-loading kilns available. To safeguard the electrical components, the element connections and power circuitry are thoughtfully separated to maximise heat protection.

Durability is a defining aspect of the EcoKiln 46, featuring a sturdy steel skeleton-based frame and a brushed stainless-steel chamber and lid wrap. The kiln’s durability is complemented by the inclusion of the removable Stafford ST215C controller.
