Full Firebrick Design

The GTS 23 features a construction made entirely of firebrick.

In a glass kiln, firebrick is highly valued for its heat retention properties at the start of the firing process, helping to stabilize temperature fluctuations. Towards the end of the firing, it gradually releases this stored heat, facilitating a gentle and even annealing process, particularly beneficial over an annealing range. This quality not only enhances performance but also adds an aesthetic charm.

Including firebrick in the construction of any glass kiln is essential, and the GTS 23 embraces this by incorporating firebrick fully in its design.

Swing View Equipped

The GTS 23 comes equipped with temperature controls housed in Evenheat's Swing View Adjustable Enclosure.

This unique feature is a pivoting, swing-up enclosure, designed to enable rotation of the control panel to your preferred angle for comfortable viewing and programming. After adjusting the settings, you can easily lay it back down for clear visibility from anywhere in your studio. It's effortlessly simple.

The Swing View is especially compatible with touchscreen controls such as the TAP II, Icon+, and Icon, allowing for the ideal alignment of the viewing angle. This feature is sure to enhance your kiln experience.

Solid-State Relays: Revolutionizing Kiln Technology for the Future

Solid-state relays (SSRs) mark a major step forward from traditional mechanical relays that rely on physical contacts and electromagnets. By using solid-state semiconductors, SSRs eliminate moving parts, reducing wear and significantly improving temperature control in kilns.

Advantage 1 - Superior Durability: SSRs are renowned for their extended service life, free from the mechanical wear and electrical arcing typical of mechanical relays. Unlike mechanical relays, which are known for their characteristic clicking sound indicating wear, Evenheat's SSRs operate quietly and with high reliability, greatly prolonging their lifespan to match that of your kiln.

Advantage 2 - Exceptional Temperature Control: Mechanical relays usually cycle every 10 to 14 seconds to balance control with lifespan, whereas SSRs can cycle as frequently as 120 times per second. This rapid cycling allows for quick adjustments and exceptional temperature control. All Evenheat control systems, including the sophisticated Icon controller, benefit from this, achieving unparalleled temperature accuracy.

Advantage 3 - Increased Heating Element Longevity: SSRs employ Zero Crossing technology, activating at the zero-voltage point of AC power cycles. This method helps extend the life of heating elements by maintaining optimal voltage levels, an advantage absent in mechanical relays.

Design Excellence - 30 Amp Capacity: Evenheat chooses 30-amp rated SSRs but operates them at a conservative 15 amps. This approach provides a significant safety margin, ensuring the SSRs remain within their derating curve even at a 15-amp load, resulting in cooler operation and extended lifespan, a testament to Evenheat's commitment to superior design.

Design Excellence - Externally Mounted SSR Heatsinks: The effectiveness and lifespan of SSRs greatly depend on proper cooling. Hence, Evenheat has strategically mounted SSR heatsinks externally, facilitating airflow and preventing heat buildup inside the control box. This design approach minimizes heat transfer to the SSRs and includes standoffs to create an air gap for additional cooling. This meticulous design ensures optimal SSR performance, as demonstrated by an impressive six-year track record of zero failures.
