When you open the kiln lid, either just to peak or like Artist Patty Gray, to manipulate the glass while it is heated, you want protection from the heat and as little of the heat to escape as possible.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eUnlike conventional top loading lid designs, the clamshell does not radiate the heat from the lid back in your face. Instead, it stores it in its bell type kiln lid. This drastically decreases the risk of thermal shock and reduces the time it takes for the chamber to recover back to set temperatures.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe bottom of the kiln is designed so you can post your shelf up level with the top edge. This allows you to assemble in the kiln without having to reach into the chamber just as you would on a table.

About the Skutt GM22CS Studio Series Glass Kiln

The Professionals Choice - The GM22CS, more commonly known as "The Clamshell", is without a doubt the Premier fusing kiln on the market. If you are a professional Fused Glass Artist, this kiln is made for you!

- The extremely wide chamber makes the GM22CS perfect for the teacher or artist who needs to fire may pieces or large pannels.
- The Clam Shell design is the premier for fusing and shallow slumping. It provides easy access to the glass for loading and manipulatig.
- The top chamber of the kiln retains the heat when the kiln is opened and the bottom allows room for heat to flow under the shelf for uniform heating.
- The kiln holds a 20" shelf with enough room for your fingers for easy placement.
- The elements are hung on refractory rods which help extend life and prevent particles from falling into the glass. The coated brick lid is removable which makes changing elements easier than any other kiln on the market.
- The unit is controlled by a GlassMaster wall mounted contoller.
- Tilt switch shuts off power to the elements when the kiln is open for added safety.

Controller - Sophisticated, Yet Easy to Use
Use of of Skutt's built in programs or customize your own.

Current Sensing Technology

Skutt is one of the few brands that installs a Current Sensor in every GlassMaster Kiln.

Sectional Design
Makes moving, repair and installation much easier.

Balanced Elements
To compensate for heat loss through the lid and slab, Skutt directs more heat to these areas when they design the elements.

The Thermocouple
Low mass Type-K thermocouple

The GM22CS Furniture Kit Includes:
1 - 20" x 20" x 5/8" Thick (Square) Shelf

The Shape
The Clamshell Shape of the GM22CS has several advantages. When you open the kiln lid, either just to peak or like Artist Patty Gray, to manipulate the glass while it is heated, you want protection from the heat and as little of the heat to escape as possible.

Unlike conventional top loading lid designs, the clamshell does not radiate the heat from the lid back in your face. Instead, it stores it in its bell type kiln lid. This drastically decreases the risk of thermal shock and reduces the time it takes for the chamber to recover back to set temperatures.

The bottom of the kiln is designed so you can post your shelf up level with the top edge. This allows you to assemble in the kiln without having to reach into the chamber just as you would on a table. It also allows heat to circulate under the shelf preventing a cool shelf.Another advantage of the bottom being level with the top edge is full access for raking or making roll-ups like Jonathan Schmuck.

Its 24″ square chamber (23.5″ x 24.5″) is perfectly suited for tile or large platters and the 14″ chamber height allows for deep slump molds and fairly tall drop rings.
     
 
Elements Over Rods
Traditionally glass kiln elements are routed into the kiln lid. While functional and cost effective, this design sometimes can cause problems. Since the elements expand and contract as they heat and cool, they can cause bits of brick or element pins to fall into your piece. The elements in the GM22CS are suspended over the chamber on ceramic rods which completely eliminates the potential of these things happening.
  Gas Struts
Due to its Clamshell design opening the lid on the GM22CS would be difficult if we did not provide assistance. That is why we added these gas struts. They were similar to the way they work on the hatchback of a car except these are specifically designed to hold up to the high temperatures of the kiln. We positioned them so they will be out of your your way when loading or manipulating glass in the kiln.

GlassFire Mode allows you to write a program simply by choosing your technique and the speed. It’s that easy!

Write your own firing programs with up to 8 Segments using Ramp and Hold. Now you can store up to 12 programs.

Built in Diagnostics give you or our technicians the ability to diagnose kiln problems with just a few button presses.

The Alarm feature allows you to set a temperature alarm that will notify you when the kiln is at peak temperature.

Adjust temperatures or hold times while the kiln is firing using Add Time or Add Temp or simply press Anneal Now to set your project and begin annealing it.

Use the Delay Start feature to fire the kiln when it is convenient for you to be there when the kiln reaches temperature.
 

Current Sensing Technology

Skutt is one of the few brands that installs a Current Sensor in every KilnMaster Kiln. This allows you to read the Amperage of each section of the kiln as well as the Voltage and Voltage Under Load.

Now with the touch of a few buttons you can give those readings over the phone to your kiln repair technician so they can troubleshoot the problem and make sure they have the correct parts when they come out for the repair. This Saves Time and Money.

Prior to the use of these current sensors someone would have to come to your house and test the amperage and voltage inside the control box with live wires exposed. This system is Much Safer.

  Balanc d Elements
As most of you probably already know, glass is very susceptible to uneven heating. The more uneven the heat is in the kiln chamber, the slower you need to fire the kiln. Side fired kiln owners understand this, and are willing to trade the disadvantages of having to slow their programs down for advantages of being able to fire on multiple levels.

Our Studio Kiln Series have lid elements and side elements. This does not mean you can fire on multiple levels. The side elements are there to replenish heat on the bottom of the kiln. This not only keeps the shelf warm (which is important), it also provides for uniform heat top to bottom for artists working with deep molds and drop molds.
 
   
 
   
Skutt Warranty   Skutt Kiln Sectional Design
The Warranty
Unlike most warranties, Skutts covers Parts AND Labor.
Never Pro-Rated.
Serviced by the most extensive, knowledgeable and talented distributor network in the industry.
Backed by a company whose mission statement is “We help you make great things”. When your kiln is down, you can’t make great things.





   Sectional Design

Moving - Imagine trying to move a kiln into the basement or through a narrow door without being able to break it down into sections.

Repair - No more standing on your head in the kiln to replace those bottom elements or removing every brick in the kiln to get to the one you want to replace. Just remove the control box, unhook the buckles and place the section you want to work on on a table.

Replacement - We hope nothing really bad happens to your kiln … but … if it does, isn’t nice to know you can replace one bad section instead of the whole kiln?
     
 
Skutt Adjustable Rolling Stand
Optional Raised Stand and Viewing Window
Get the most out of your kiln by adding the optional view window and Adjustable Rolling Stand. The viewing window allows you to look into the kiln while it is actually firing so you can see if that piece is perfectly fused or slumped without losing heat by having to open the lid. The Adjustable Rolling Stand allows you to raise the kiln to a level that is comfortable for you. Watch this video to see what it looks like.
  Adjustable Rolling Stand
Most Skutt Kilns come with a stand but often times it is nice to be able to roll the kiln out of the way when not in use or to clean under. Now Skutt makes a heavy duty rolling stand for most of it's kiln models.



 
 And So Much More!
When you are buying a kiln, you are not just buying the equipment, you are also buying the service that comes before and after the sale. From the moment Skutt cuts that first brick to the day you open the box, to the day you are ready to retire it, Skutt's reputation is on the line and we take that very seriously.
