If we already have the specification for the kiln then not a problem, we can make the element but we like to confirm details to get it right for you some minor stretching and bending maybe required in some kilns to get exact fit.
Photo's emailed will certainly help us indentify your kiln and resizing to medium will reduce file size but first ensure your photo is focused and nameplate readable.
If not then we will either need a sample element posted to us or all the information about the kiln elements to determine if elements throughout the kiln are same design or different. For Example Top/bottom or middle maybe different, to enable us to calculate the element we need to know this information.
We will require the Kiln Name Plate Specification details, KW rating, Amps, 1phase , 2phase , 3phase, element coil outside diameter, length of element coil. Element wire outside diameter using digital verniers (see tabel Below)if possible or mm ruler estimation. The number of elements and how it is connected in control box as there are many different configuarations.
Wire Gauge Standard Sizes below tolerances are very close in millimetres
The temperature kilns are fired to has a considerable effect on the life of the element.
If you fire your kiln once a week for one year to 1280ºc would be equal to three years of 1200ºc firings so stoneware firings will shorten your elements life considerable
A lot of people are moving to mid fire clays and firing to a much lower temperature
We also make custom elements made to your specifications
Send an email with pictures of kiln specifcations plate and a few pictures of elements in kiln for us to quote for you.
