The basis of well-fired clay products, whether industrial or decorative, are kilns which can sinter the fired material during the firing itself. It is an undoubtable truth that without a modern ceramic kiln it is very difficult to reach quality properties and first-class final shape of ceramic products. However, not every enthusiast and lover of work with clay has sufficient funds to buy a professional ceramic kiln. Therefore, in our offer you can find not only already mentioned professional kilns with advanced setting options and control of the firing, but also standard kilns for hobby production, which are full-fledged solution for less demanding ceramics lovers! In a nutshell, everyone can choose just the kiln he needs, and we will willingly help you with the selection, so you can choose the most suitable machine with respect to its price and requested properties and parameters.
Whether your workshop needs high-volume ceramic kilns for regular firing of higher volume of clay products, or you are satisfied with occasional firing in smaller ceramic kilns, during the selection you will always be dealing with basic parameters, properties and functionality of a specific kiln. A professional will logically have slightly different needs for a ceramic kiln than a hobby enthusiast with irregular firing. Despite these differences, we can say that when selecting the right kiln for ceramic firing, it is necessary to stick to certain principles. Now, we will describe to you the most important ones. If anything is not clear to you, or if you wish to consult the selection of a new ceramic kiln with us in more detail, feel free to contact us and we will gladly provide you with non-binding professional advice.
1. Type of a kiln heating system – gas kiln vs. electric kiln. Every heating system has its advantages and disadvantages. Electric firing is easier and easier to control and programmable with good reproducibility. On the other hand, gas kilns allow ceramic firing in a reducing atmosphere, lower operating costs, and are frequently used for firing over 1300°C (e.g. porcelain). Initial costs are unambiguously lesser at electric kilns.
2. Firing temperature – we distinguish the maximal temperature of a kiln and the operational temperature. We select the second one with respect to materials and demands on final firing. For long-term smooth operation, the performance reserve of kiln is usually recommended at least of 50, but more preferably of 100°C, comparing to the planned firing temperature.
3. Volume of a ceramic kiln – we comply with the requirement for the size and volume of a batch (or fired products). In standard dimension, we offer inner volumes of ceramic kilns from 16 litres (for firing of samples) up to 10.000 litres, which is suitable for experienced manufactures (higher volumes are individually bespoken devices). For the hobby ceramists firing, kilns with an inner volume of 50 – 300 litres are usually used.
4. Way of filling a ceramic kiln – it is necessary to consider whether it is preferable for you the upper or lateral variant of loading the goods for firing, that means top-loading or chamber kiln. Shutter kilns are used for larger types of kilns.
5. Quality of construction and heating coils – overall top-class design of a kiln, stable and solid construction, solution of heating system, construction of lid or roof, these are important aspects of the selection. For this reason, we recommend you preferring proven manufacturers of ceramic kilns with sufficient history and with the availability of spare parts and service.
6. Way of ventilation and temperature regulation – both effect the kiln´s lifetime. Easy temperature control and, above all, functional ventilation influence, among other factors, the final quality of the firing. Quality ceramic kiln must provide perfect (consistent) distribution of temperature in the heating chamber and low operational costs – remember this when choosing. The quality and dimension of insulation of ceramic kilns, which significantly affect kiln´s lifetime, are also important.
