What Kilns Use a Kiln Sitter?
Currently, Evenheat produces three series of kilns that include the Kiln Sitter as standard equipment: The Classic, TnB and Fyrematic series. Good Kilns produces the Blue and Red series kilns which include the Kiln Sitter. In each of these series the kilns contain controls which regulate and control the heat with the Kiln Sitter shutting off power to the elements at the proper time. Does the Kiln Sitter Control the Heating? No. The Kiln Sitter simply removes power from the heating elements when the proper temperature is achieved. It has no other function. What precautions should I take? One important thing to remember is that the kiln sitter system is not fool-proof. For that matter, the computerized kilns can also malfunction. You must never leave a kiln unattended while it is firing. Never leave the room nor sleep when the kiln is on. Loose wiring can cause a fire. Wiring may work its way loose over time because of heating/cooling. Check the connections once per year. A kiln that doe
