Many artists still prefer the traditional close interaction of firing a kiln manually.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003eThe KilnSitter is a mechanical control that fires your kiln by the time and temperature method of heat treatment using pyrometric cones or bars. After being exposed to the propper time and temperature (heatwork) the cone or bar softens and bends to a predetermined ange, shutting off the kiln.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003eThe temperature and heating rate of the KilnSitter (KS) kilns are controlled by switches that you turn up in intervals.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003eA unique feature of the KilnSitter line of Skutt kilns is that all models (except the KS614-3\" and the KS609) can be expanded by inserting a 4.5\" tall brick ring between the sections. It should be noted that the use of the ring limits the maximum firing temperature to Cone 1 (2100 Degrees F) for most models. This ring can be added or removed between firings.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eLimit timers should always be ordered as a safety backup to prevent over fires.

Its Cone 10 capability and expandable design have made the KS-818 the most popular of our smaller models. You can order the KS-818 with a permanent 9\" Wired Ring and fire to Cone 10. For really tall pieces, add a 4-1\/2\" blank ring to fire a 30\" piece to Cone 1. Where energy saving is important, this series can be ordered with a 3\" firebrick.

About the Skutt KS818

KilnSitter Controllers have been used reliably on Skutt Kilns for over 50 years. Many artists still prefer the traditional close interaction of firing a kiln manually.

The KilnSitter is a mechanical control that fires your kiln by the time and temperature method of heat treatment using pyrometric cones or bars. After being exposed to the propper time and temperature (heatwork) the cone or bar softens and bends to a predetermined ange, shutting off the kiln.

The temperature and heating rate of the KilnSitter (KS) kilns are controlled by switches that you turn up in intervals.

A unique feature of the KilnSitter line of Skutt kilns is that all models (except the KS614-3" and the KS609) can be expanded by inserting a 4.5" tall brick ring between the sections. It should be noted that the use of the ring limits the maximum firing temperature to Cone 1 (2100 Degrees F) for most models. This ring can be added or removed between firings.

Limit timers should always be ordered as a safety backup to prevent over fires. They are listed as an optional feature and must be ordered at the time the kiln is ordered.

 This small octagonal kiln is similar to the original Skutt kiln that started it all, and it has long been revered as the work-horse of the small studio. Its Cone 10 capability and expandable design have made the KS-818 the most popular of our smaller models. You can order the KS-818 with a permanent 9" Wired Ring and fire to Cone 10. For really tall pieces, add a 4-1/2" blank ring to fire a 30" piece to Cone 1. Where energy saving is important, this series can be ordered with a 3" firebrick. Invest in the KS-818 and you will fire happily for decades.

Standard Features
The Skutt KS818 kiln includes the KilnSitter controller built in. Other standard features include:

  • 2 Year limited warranty, elements excluded
  • 2.5" thick brick standard with 3" brick available as an upgrade
  • Crimp on connectors on feeder wires
  • Multi-sided design
  • Stainless steel jacket
  • Sectionalized construction
  • Two lift handles on each section
  • Sealed, dust free lid with full-floating hinge
  • Two types of exposed, pinned elements for optimum balance
  • Reversible top and bottom slabs
  • Stand included
  • Peep plugs included
  • UL Listing

Please note, 8, 7, 6 and 4 sided kilns do not include a lid lifter system. The lid is not heavy enough to require the extra expense.
