The Nabertherm Top 160 premium ceramic kiln is made out of first-grade materials. The elegant design, additional back insulation, and many extras make the Nabertherm Top series a proven choice for both small and larger pottery workshops and leisure activities. It is also DEKRA-certified (security check by an independent authority).
Nabertherm Top ceramic kilns are the ideal choice for organized leisure activities. It offers a great price to performance ratio and excellent firing results. Ceramic kilns of the Top series are the best equipped ceramic top-loading kilns in our market. The Top series has equipment that is available at other manufacturers for a surcharge, if available at all. The operation is easy and comfortable thanks to this equipment. In addition, the Top kilns are certified for safety by the independent DEKRA authority.
The furnace lining is made of K23 porous refractory bricks stacked dry without glue. It is standard that the furnaces are multi-layer insulated, behind the brick lining of the furnace is located additional back microporous insulation. Furthermore, the small models up to 60 litres has additional fiber insulation. This guarantees efficient operation, the difference in energy saving is 15 – 20%. All the insulating materials used are classified as non-carcinogenic according to the norm TRGS 905 class 1 or 2. (Unfortunately, kilns with carcinogenic insulations from other manufacturers are commonly available in our market.)
The fixed hinge of the furnace lid is adjustable and is complemented by strong gas dampers. These allow easy lifting of the lid and significantly reduce the risk of damage due to careless handling. Another important advantage of Nabertherm Top ceramic furnaces is the lid construction itself, which is not glued with putty. This eliminates the risk of contamination of fired goods by dropping the mortar from the lid. This will be appreciated especially after some time of operation of the furnaces, when glued lids usually crack and come loose due to different shrinkage of both materials during firing cycles.
Heating from all sides of the Top series ceramic kiln ensures good temperature distribution and lower consumption thanks to its circulation of warm air. The heating elements (coils) are covered in lining brick grooves to reduce the risk of contact with fired goods and are made of high quality Swedish Kanhal FeCrAl alloy.
Solid State Relay are used as switching elements, which are silent and almost wear-free in comparison to contactors, so future service costs are minimal.
The maximum temperature of ceramic kilns of the Top series is 1320°C, while increased wear occurs during long-term firing close to the maximum temperature. Therefore, the manufacturer recommends using these furnaces for regular firing up to a temperature of 1230°C. Models marked Top ../R with higher heating power for regular firing up to a temperature of 1290°C.
The Nabertherm Top ceramic furnace is standard equipped with castors that make it easy to relocate the furnace and also has bottom fresh air flap. This is important for proper venting the chemically bound moisture that is released from the ceramic products in the first firing stage. Poor ventilation of the furnace could have a major effect on the firing quality, especially when firing more demanding effect glazes. The casing of the ceramic furnace is made out of elegant stainless steel with a fine structure.
In comparison to other kilns, the control of Nabertherm ceramic kilns is exceptional.
The furnaces are standard equipped with the Nabertherm B 400 controller, which is easy to operate. The controller is multilingual and can be easily switched to 17 languages including English. On the furnace side there is a practical controller holder. For convenient settings, the controller can be removed from the holder.
The B 400 can name and store up to 5 programs, offers a delayed start with a calendar, has adjustable 4 segments, 2 additional switching functions, and an energy consumption indicator for the last firing and total, which is continuously counting.
For first time use, you can watch the controller video tutorials which you will find below. If more programs or more segments of the firing curve are required, the furnace can be equipped with controller C 440 (10 programs, 20 segments) or P 470 (50 programs, 40 segments), or even VCD control and documentation software.
Advanced users might use other controller functions if they are interested.
The controller can work with several levels of access rights.
The Operator can only select and activate / deactivate an already stored program.
In addition, the Supervisor can set and save programs; and finally
the Administrator can also set the user behavior of the controller itself. This function is especially appreciated by ceramic workshops where the furnace is operated by multiple workers. For example, a situation where a less knowledgeable operator mistakenly modifies saved firing curves (programs) cannot occur.
The controller is equipped with a USB port. It can be used for import / export of firing curves and also for firing documentation. If you connect a flash memory stick, it will automatically copy data from past firings in CSV format. This data can be conveniently read in the free NTGraph software, which is based on Microsoft Excel. The firing data is displayed as a table or as a color chart.
Furthermore, the USB memory stick can be used to import / export the firing curve. You can conveniently prepare the curve on your computer with the free NtEdit software, which is again based on Microsoft Excel.
Most top-loading kilns series Top in standard design are ready for fast despatch. Therefore, you will not need to wait long for your new ceramic furnace.
