The Original Oval Glass Kiln - GTS 2541

Top Load

The GTS 2541 features a design that loads from the top, with a chamber measuring 41 inches in width, 25.25 inches in length, and 13.5 inches in depth.

Full Firebrick Design

The GTS 2541 is entirely made of firebrick.

Firebrick is particularly beneficial in a glass kiln because it initially stores heat during the firing process, helping to even out temperature fluctuations. Towards the end of the firing, it gradually releases heat, contributing to a very stable and gentle annealing process, especially over the annealing range. This quality is simply remarkable.

In any glass kiln, incorporating some amount of firebrick is advisable.

Lid Lift Assist

The substantial firebrick lid of the GTS 2541 can become quite heavy. To make opening and closing easier, the GTS 2541 is equipped with Evenheat's unique Dyna-Lift lid lift assist system.

The Dyna-Lift reduces the effort required to operate the kiln lid by attaching to and lifting from a single point – the lid handle. Importantly, the lift assist is not connected to the kiln chamber in any way. All the significant lifting forces are transferred directly to the kiln stand, not the kiln itself. This ingenious design ensures that no lifting forces are exerted on the chamber, preventing any potential weakening.

The Dyna-Lift Lid Lift Assist stands out as the most well-designed and effective lift assist on the market.

Swing View Equipped

The temperature controls of the GTS 2541 are integrated into Evenheat's Swing View Adjustable Enclosure.

This feature comprises a rotating, swing-up enclosure, enabling you to pivot the control panel to an angle that's comfortable for both viewing and programming. When you've finished setting it up, you can simply lay it back down for easy visibility from anywhere in your studio. It's a straightforward and efficient design.

The Swing View works exceptionally well with touchscreen controls such as the TAP II, Icon+, and Icon, as it allows for optimal alignment of the viewing angle. You're going to find it incredibly convenient.

Relay Access Port

The GTS 2541 features Evenheat's Relay Access Port, designed for easy and hassle-free relay replacement without the need to remove the entire panel.

To access the mechanical relays, you only need to remove the access plate, eliminating the need to dismantle the control panel or delve into intricate internal wiring. The process is incredibly straightforward and efficient, requiring just a screwdriver!

Given that mechanical relays inevitably fail over time, this relay access port proves to be extremely useful when the need for replacement arises.

2 Position Lid Vent

The GTS 2541 features a lid vent adjustable to two positions.

When set to the lower vent position, the lid is propped open approximately one inch, ideal for venting adhesives and other binding materials that operate at low temperatures.

In its upper vent position, the lid is elevated roughly four inches, significantly enhancing airflow to expedite the cooling process.

Embracing the Future with Solid-State Relays: A Kiln Technology Breakthrough

Solid-state relays (SSRs) represent a significant advancement over traditional mechanical relays, which depend on physical contacts and electromagnets. SSRs utilize solid-state semiconductors, removing the need for moving parts and thereby diminishing wear, while substantially enhancing temperature control in kilns.

Advantage 1 - Enhanced Durability: SSRs boast a longer lifespan, free from the mechanical deterioration and electrical arcing common in mechanical relays. In contrast to the notable clicking noise of mechanical relays indicating use and wear, Evenheat’s SSRs operate in silence and with high reliability, significantly extending their service life to match that of your kiln.

Advantage 2 - Unrivaled Temperature Accuracy: While mechanical relays typically cycle every 10 to 14 seconds to balance control and longevity, SSRs can cycle up to 120 times per second. This swift cycling enables rapid adjustments and outstanding temperature precision. Every Evenheat control system, including the advanced Icon controller, benefits from this rapid cycling, achieving unmatched temperature accuracy.

Advantage 3 - Prolonged Heating Element Lifespan: SSRs utilize Zero Crossing technology, activating at the zero-voltage point in AC power cycles. This approach extends the lifespan of heating elements by maintaining ideal voltage levels, a feature not present in mechanical relays.

Design Excellence - 30 Amp Capacity: Evenheat selects SSRs with a 30-amp rating but operates them conservatively at 15 amps. This strategy offers a significant safety margin, ensuring the SSRs work within their derating curve even at a 15-amp load, leading to cooler operation and a longer lifespan. This reflects Evenheat's dedication to outstanding design.

Design Excellence - Externally Mounted SSR Heatsinks: The longevity of SSRs is highly dependent on efficient cooling. For this reason, Evenheat mounts SSR heatsinks externally, enhancing airflow and preventing heat accumulation inside the control box. This design minimizes heat transfer between the enclosure and the SSRs, with standoffs creating an air gap for additional cooling. This careful design ensures the SSRs function optimally, evidenced by an impressive six-year record of zero failures.
