The Olympic 259GFE electric kiln is used for the fusing and forming of glass shapes, precious metal clay and heat treating. It has an oval shape and fires to 1,700°F on 240 or 208 volts. It is one of the shallower Olympic oval glass fusing kilns.
Oval kilns are designed for large workloads and unusual shapes that do not fit in a cylindrical or square shape kiln and used for fusing and forming of glass shapes and heat-treating.
The 259GFE is equipped with a lid element for the fusing segment of the glass firing and a body element for the ramping up and down and annealing segments of the firing. A selector switch is on the electrical box to designate either the lid or body element to heat during the firing.
It comes with a RTC-1000 electronic controller.
