Olympic has incorporated the high quality standards of its electric kilns into the Torchbearer Gas Kilns. Portable gas kilns offer many advantages such as low initial cost, convenient movement for demonstration firings, and for use in situations where space does not permit the installation of large permanent kilns.
The Olympic torchbearers will fire to cone 10 using natural gas, propane, or butane, and may be easily adjusted for oxidation, reduction, or Raku firing. The multiple burner configuration gives the Torchbearers very even heating characteristics, fast controllable firing times, and economical operation.
For setup, contact your local gas company to purchase 3/4" pipeline, low pressure regulator and gas tank (if running on propane.) Propane runs on 11" water column (water column is rate of gas pressure.) Natural gas runs on 7" water column. Gas consumption per firing: 18" model, 5 gallons per firing. 23" model, 7-10 gallons per firing. 28" model, 10 gallons per firing.
Olympic approximates that to achieve a cone 10 firing, you will use one gallon of LPG, per every cubic foot of kiln volume, (i.e. The 7 cu ft 2327G, will consume approximately 7 cu ft of LPG for cone 10.)
|Consumption per firing||5 gallons|
|Depth ( inches )||27"|
|Volume ( cu ft. )||3.95|
|Note||Please be warned, gas kilns are not for beginners or for someone who just wants to press a button and have the kiln fire itself.|
