Quick Overview


Model - 189GFETLC  240 or 208 volt, inside dimensions: 17 ½" wide x 9" deep, fires to 1700° F

Two kilns in one!  The 189GFETLC is a top loading and clamshell loading kiln!  You get the standard top loading model plus the clamshell loading which makes flash venting, glass raking and loading shelves with glass positioned easy and convenient.  Glass firing kilns are used for fusing and forming of glass shapes and heat-treating.  240-208 volt glass fusing models are equipped with a lid element for the fusing segment of the glass firing and body elements for the ramping up-down and annealing segments of the firing.  An infinite switch controls the intensity of the heat coming from the lid element.  If the switch remains in the OFF position, only the body elements will heat the kiln. If the infinite switch is turned to the High position, all elements, both body and lid, heat at the same intensity.  The kiln operator may choose to lessen the intensity of lid element by turning the switch down.  Models come equipped with pilot light, 18” tall metal stand or frame, stainless steel jacket, and Bartlett Instruments 3 Key electronic controller.  Controller data is entered by scrolling through the up and down arrows for the desired temperature for ramp-hold programming.  

Model comes with attached tall frame or tall stand, peephole plugs, lid wedge, instruction manual, and warranty card. Two-year warranty.
Upgrade to the 12 key digital RTC-1000 controller for more ramp-hold user programs and multiple features including delay start, preheat, skip step and many more for precise firings every time.  Messages and Information are available for reviewing a firing profile before or during the firing, and for viewing the current segment the firing is in.  Other options include the lid lift assist, which makes it easy to open and close heavy kiln lids, bead door, quartz glass viewing window, Type S thermocouple, vent and much more! 

Furniture Kit is included for this 240-208 volt glass fusing kiln.  It includes 2 layers of shelving for stacking ware, assorted square posts, ceramic paper and a one pound bag of kiln wash.  Choose the standard furniture kit for the model chosen or build your own with shelves and posts in the quantities required.
