Assembly9” high sections stack on top of each other. The hinge and element connection box hold the entire kiln together as an integrated unit. The kiln is very easy to assemble and disassemble. All wires are marked or color coded and attach to pull-off terminal strips.

Construction - Stainless steel wrapped around shaped firebrick. There are three adjustable clamps welded to each casing. All assembly is with stainless steel screws. The kiln sections sit on a separate stand.

Hinge - Spring loaded "Easy-Lift" lid opens with a feather-lite touch. The strength of the hinge allows the lid to rest back away from the opening without a support arm that would get in the way of loading the kiln.

Stand -Heavy-duty 14 gauge full solid stand with multiple bends for strength. Legs bolt on with heavy 1/4-20 stainless bolts. The metal is aluminized for good corrosion resistance.

Brick Coating -A proprietary brick coating is applied to all interior surfaces of the kiln. This is put on before the element holders are inserted. This coating penetrates the firebrick and fuses the surface on a microscopic level which helps prevent dusting and crumbling of the fragile firebrick.

Peephole Plugs -Solid ceramic peephole plugs with full 1” diameter. Two total: one per section.

Warranty - Limited Three Year Warranty

Control Type - DynaTrol Multi-Program Zone Control

Zones - Multi-Zone with a separate thermocouple for each 9" zone. 

Thermocouple - 8 Ga Type K Exposed Thermocouples in Mullite Protection Tubes are standard on Easy Fire Kilns

Control Mounting - Mounted on control panel

Control Box Mounting -The control panel is angled for easy viewing and operation of the DynaTrol. All controls and components are mounted in a separate control panel that is piggy-backed on top of the element connection box. A layer of insulation and this separation helps keep the controls cool for longer life. The control panel and element box are hinged for easy access and maintenance. Moreover, when the top control panel is in the open position it rigidly stays in a perpendicular position making servicing safer and easier than with other make kilns. Also the control box can be easily removed for servicing. On/off switch and control fuse are included. More about Easy-Fire control panel.

Control Panel ServiceControl box drops down perpendicular to kiln for easy access to wiring and controls. All electrical wires are color coded or numbered.

Please note: Not all kiln options are available on all L&L kilns. Specific options available for this kiln can be checked in the drop down options above. 

Rolling Stand

L&L's rolling kiln stand features heavy gauge (14 ga) galvannealed steel construction with multiple bends for extra strength, steel swivel locking casters, integrated vent collection box support, and guide rails for the kiln. Each size is fitted to the kiln. Important special caution plates are riveted to three sides of the stand. The vent collection box is not included but, when you order a Vent-Sure vent system the longer duct is included with the system.


E-Quad Element Option

Large Diameter Elements With Thick Wire And Lower Watt Density

  • The Quad element system provides four rows of elements in one 9" high section.
  • The combination of large 1/2" diameter element coils (most non-L&L elements are only 1/3" in diameter), the doubled surface area of the Quad element design, and superior heat transfer of L&L's patented ceramic element holders, make this the best element system in the world today.
  • Used on JH Series kilns for several years now - under the rigorous conditions of high temperature crystalline glaze firing - element life of over 130 firings with standard A-1 alloy have been normal. In another example, on an eQuad-Pro, with three sets of elements being used, one customer got 232 firings to Cone 5 per element set.
  • Increased surface area of our Quad element system results in more even firings.
  • Quad elements are more cost effective than APM elements for high-fire work. Combine Quad and APM for the ultimate in element life.

Available As An Option On These Kilns - Easy-Fire, Easy-Fire XT, Jupiter, DaVinci, Liberty-Belle

Standard On These Kilns - eQuad-Pro, JH Series


Vent-Sure for 120 Volts or 220 Volts

    A Critical Component In The Longevity Of Your Kiln!

    The Vent-Sure automatic kiln vent helps prevent corrosion on the inside and outside of your kiln. It ensures that your kiln gets the longest possible life from your elements and electrical components. This is so important that, if you do not have a Vent-Sure installed on your kiln, the pro-rated element warranty is in a different category.

    Vent Blower

        • The vent blower motor is normally mounted with the 12" outlet protruding through the wall.

    L&L Vent-Sure Components

        • This keeps the heat of the kiln away from the motor (for long motor life) and keeps the motor vibration away from the kiln (which can cause ware to move, damage to the kiln, and misfiring of cones on a Kiln Sitter - if you have one).

    Vacuum Is Safer Than Pressure

        • The vent tubing is kept under vacuum instead of pressure.
        • This insures that any leak in the tubing does not blow noxious fumes into your room.

    External Venting Is Better

        • External venting is safer and surer than venting to the inside of your kiln room (even with a filter).

    Large Capacity

        • The blower vents up to 130 CFM (cubic feet per minute).
        • This will handle up to a 20 cubic foot kiln (and usually larger). More than one vent can be attached to a kiln.

    Minimal Electrical Power Needed

        • The motor only pulls 1.37 amps at 120 Volts.

    Six Foot Power Cord With On/Off Switch

        • The blower motor features a 6 foot long 120 volt 15 amp power cord. An On/Off switch is located on the cord.
        • 240 volt models are available.

    Adjustable Vent Control

      • A vacuum bypass on the kiln bypass/collection box adjusts the amount of venting from the system.
      • Don’t waste heat and energy by venting more than you need.
      • Adjust vent to kiln size.

    Vent-Sure Collection BoxVent-Sure Collection Box

    15 Feet Of Flexible Aluminum Duct

    • 15 feet of flexible expandable aluminum 3" diameter duct is included along with necessary hose clamps.
    • Longer lengths or lengths of 3" stove pipe can be used as well.
    • Length can be as great as 60 feet horizontal or vertical with up to four 90 degree bends.

    Three Year Limited Warranty

    • Because of our unique wall-mount fan we rarely replace fan motors.

    MET Listed To UL499 Standards

    • The VENT-SURE Model VS-1 is c-MET-us listed for use with all c-MET-us listed L&L kilns. It is MET-us listed for all MET-us listed L&L kilns.

    Optional Multi-Mounting Bracket

    • A special Multi-mounting bracket (M-V-MULT/00) is available to mount the vent motor on the floor or point the outlet vertically for ceiling installations.

    Vent-Sure Floor Mounting Bracket

    Vent-Sure Floor Mounting Bracket Installed

    Optional Vent Doubler

    You can get a Vent Doubler option (M-V-VENT/DB) which allow you to vent two kilns that are each up to 10 cubic feet.

    Vent-Sure Vent Doubler

    Optional Vent Controller To Turn Vent On And Off With DynaTrol

    Vent Controller

    • The Vent Control will allow you to program the vent motor to turn on and off during the firing cycle.

    Vent-Sure for 120 Volts (primarily used in the USA)

    This is the complete 120 volt Vent-Sure System.

    WHAT IS INCLUDED:

    1. One wall-mounted blower mounted on a bracket with a 12" long vent pipe to go through outside wall
    2. One Motor Inlet Duct
    3. An 6 foot power cord with an attached On/Off switch plugs into a 120 volt standard receptacle
    4. One Bypass Collection Box to be mounted to the kiln or on the kiln stand, with mounting hardware
    5. One length of flexible aluminum ducting (expands to 15 feet) with two hose clamps
    6. One 4” diameter 90 degree elbow (for outside the building)

    Model: M-V-VENT/00

    NOTE: Vents made by manufacturers other than L&L may not be listed to UL499 standards if used with an L&L kiln. The same is true in reverse - the L&L Vent-Sure is listed to UL499 standards only with L&L listed kilns. If you have any question please contact the manufacturer of your non-L&L vent system.

    High Limit Control

    • Bartlett High Limit Control with latching relay acts as a back up to the main DynaTrol control.
    • You set a high limit temperature on this control for the kiln.
    • If the DynaTrol fails for any reason then this acts as a "back stop" and shuts the kiln down.
    • It latches in the closed position until the High Limit control is manually reset by pressing a button on the face of the control.

    Back Up Contactor Option

    • The normal configuration for the control breaks the power to the negative of the relays.
    • However, you can also purchase this with back up contactors which will be completely redundant power contactors so that if one or more contactors fail in a closed position then the kiln still cannot climb above the High Limit set point.

    Genesis Touch Screen Control Option

    9th Generation Bartlett Control!

    The new Genesis control from Bartlett includes a touch screen interface and WIFI connectivity added to the proven software of the DynaTrol.

    Electronic High Limit Back Up Control

    The High Limit Control is shown below the DynaTrol on the product photo.

    High Limit Control

    • Bartlett High Limit Control with latching relay acts as a back up to the main DynaTrol control.
    • You set a high limit temperature on this control for the kiln.
    • If the DynaTrol fails for any reason then this acts as a "back stop" and shuts the kiln down.
    • It latches in the closed position until the High Limit control is manually reset by pressing a button on the face of the control.

    Back Up Contactor Option

    • The normal configuration for the control breaks the power to the negative of the relays.
    • However, you can also purchase this with back up contactors which will be completely redundant power contactors so that if one or more contactors fail in a closed position then the kiln still cannot climb above the High Limit set point.

    Pyrocil Metal Sheathed Industrial Thermocouple Upgrade

    Where They Are Used?

    • The industrial metal sheathed Type K thermocouples are available by special order.
    • They are not as long lasting as our standard 8 gauge thermocouple when it is protected by the industrial mulllite protection tube.
    • However, they do offer greater sensitivity to temperature change and so may be appropriate in applications that are below about 2200°F and require sensitivity (glass is a good example).
    • Note that our standard 8 Gauge thermocouples with ceramic protection tubes use a +18 Deg F thermocouple offset which is programmed into the DynaTrol or One-Touch control. If you use these Pyrocil sheathed thermocouples start with a thermocouple offset of zero.

    • L&L provides these thermocouples with a 1/4” diameter sheath. These will last longer than the smaller 1/8” diameter thermocouples that some manufactures use. We use a high quality ceramic terminal block on the end. They are 6-1/2" long.
    • From our own extensive testing we found that this particular metal sheathing performed best of the available materials on the market under repeated Cone 10 firings.

      Type-S Platinum Thermocouple Upgrade

      The standard thermocouple used on the DynaTrol is Type K. The most common thermocouple configuration used is an 8 gauge exposed Type K thermocouple covered by a mullite ceramic protection tube (standard on Easy-Fire, Jupiter, Liberty-Belle, School-Master, Doll and DaVinci).

      The Best High Temperature Thermocouple Is A Type S

      • The very best thermocouple for constant high fire applications is a Type S platinum thermocouple with an alumina sheath.
      • This is normally only recommended for the most extreme conditions (like firing crystalline glazes) because of its expense - or if the value or precision of your work is such that you do not want to risk thermocouple drift.
      • You can special order a DynaTrol with Type S thermocouples. They are not available for the One-Touch™ control.

      Technical Information

      • Type S thermocouples are composed of a positive leg which is 90% platinum and 10% Rhodium, and a negative leg which is 100% platinum.
      • It is usable from 32°F to 2700°F. (0°C to 1480°C).
      • It has a different EMF output than Type K thermocouples (meaning the same temperature will produce different voltages to the control which must then be interpreted differently).
      • That different scale requires both a simple hardware configuration change and a software change to take effect so it can not be done inadvertently.
      • At temperatures used in pottery kilns (even the highest 2350°F) these thermocouples can last for a very long time (as long as they are not mechanically broken).

      Retrofitting A Control With Type K Thermocouples

      • This is not a retrofittable option on DynaTrols used before Jan 1, 2006.
      • On the newer 700 DynaTrol boards it is possible to switch from Type K to Type S with a programming change and a jumper change.
      • You MUST also change the thermocouple extension wire from Type K wire to Type S wire.

      Description

      • The Type S thermocouples that we provide have a 5/16" OD alumina sheath.
      • They are ungrounded.
      • There are two lengths.
      • The short one used in the Easy-Fire, Jupiter and DaVinci kilns is 120mm (4.75”) long.
      • The long one used in the front-loading kilns like the Renaissance, Hercules and Easy-Load kilns is 160mm long (6.3”).
      • Termination is in a ceramic terminal block.

      Which Thermocouples Are Used On Which Kilns?

      • One 120mm thermocouple is used on the Doll
      • Two 120mm thermocouples are used for any two section (18" high) Easy-Fire, Jupiter or DaVinci kiln
      • Three 120mm thermocouples on all other Easy-Fire, Jupiter or Davinci kilns.
      • EL2424 kilns use two. EL2427 and all other Easy-Load kilns use three. All front-loading kilns use 160mm TCs.
      • Type S thermocouples are not available on the School-Master, Liberty-Belle, Doll or Renaissance kilns if fitted with a Bartlett 3 Button control or the One-Touch™ control.
      • These are included as standard equipment on the JH Series Kilns.

      Important Note

      • If you have a Type S thermocouple or are retrofitting an older kiln with a Type S thermocouple the control must be configured for use with Type S thermocouples. If not the kiln could seriously overfire. See this for more information...

          Ceramic Fiber Lid for DaVinci Kilns

          Ceramic Fiber Lids Are The Answer To Lid Cracking On Large Span Lids

          • These are ideal for T3400 kilns.
          • The lid firebrick is replaced with ceramic fiber modules.
          • 2600°F ceramic fiber is folded and formed into 4" thick modules that have an alloy support system inside.
          • The internal support of the module is stud-welded to a metal frame that matches the normal metal frame that we use in the firebrick lid.
          • These lids will never crack or spall and will last indefinitely.
          • The ceramic fiber is rated in temperature higher than the kiln rating so there is no concern about shrinkage of the fiber.
          • These fiber lids are available as either new equipment or as retrofit kits to fit older kilns.

          Warning: Refractory ceramic fiber has hazards associated with its use. Please see this current state analysis from NIOSH. Use a NIOSH approved dust mask when working with refractory ceramic fiber.


          480 Volt Option

          Technical Details For DaVinci And Jupiter JD2900 Kilns

          • Standard DaVinci and JD2900 kilns have three elements per section. Elements are wired in a Star (Wye) Configuration to get 277 volts at the elements. This means the voltage potential in the kiln is much safer than it would be if the elements were running at 480 volts.
          • On Quad versions we use two 240 volt elements in series.
          • Power supply does not require a neutral (it is a "floating neutral).
          • Watts are the same as 240-volt kilns. Amperage goes down.
          • An optional NEMA 1 control panel is a special heavy-duty industrial control panel. These panels are floor standing on an included stand. They typically sit on the right side of the kiln. Note that you need the NEMA1 panel to get the MET-us listing. The price of the NEMA 1 panel is added to the price of the basic 480 volt option.
          • Each kiln section is separately branch fused.
          • A lighted “On/Off” switch is included.
          • Kiln sections are “hard wired” (meaning that there are no plugs and receptacles) from the sections to the control panel with flexible “SO” cord (typically 72” long each).
          • These 480 Volt kilns are c-MET-us listed to UL499 standards if the NEMA 1 panel is ordered.
