As Evenheat says: Better by Design!

Top Load

The HF 1813 showcases a vertical-loading structure and presents a spacious chamber, 17.5 inches in diameter and 13.5 inches deep.

The 17.5" chamber is the preferred minimum diameter for ceramic work.

Outfitted with 3 inches of premium firebrick insulation, this kiln effortlessly achieves and sustains elevated temperatures.

Lid Handle

The Evenheat 8" lid handle is thoughtfully crafted for user convenience. Positioned strategically at the wide corner, the handle offers a firm and comfortable hold, even with gloves on. Its distinctive design not only enhances usability but also contributes to the overall pleasing experience of operating it.

Lid Vent

The HF 1813 comes with an innovative two-position lid vent, ingeniously designed to accelerate the cooling phase with finesse.

Swing View Equipped

The HF 1813's temperature controls are effortlessly incorporated into our cutting-edge Swing View Adjustable Enclosure.

This pioneering component boasts a swivel and lift-up design, allowing you to effortlessly tilt the control panel to your preferred angle for comfortable viewing and programming. Once done, you can just lower it back down for an unobstructed view from any spot in your studio. The mechanism is intuitive and user-friendly.

The Swing View is particularly compatible with touchscreen controls such as the TAP II, Icon+, and Icon, offering the flexibility to adjust the screen to the ideal viewing angle. Its convenience and practicality are features you're sure to value.

3" Firebrick with No Loss in Chamber Volume

Throughout the chronicles of kiln design evolution, the 2-1/2" firebrick stood as a staple. However, with the advent of high-temperature demands, the 3" firebrick ascended, prompting many kiln manufacturers to concede. They chose to reduce the firing chamber size to integrate the thicker insulation, maintaining the traditional external kiln size.

Evenheat, however, embarked on a distinct journey. Instead of diminishing the chamber's size, they preserved its spacious interior and extended the outer dimensions. This innovative strategy ensures the retention of the chamber's volume, guaranteeing a perfect fit for standard kiln furniture. This deliberate design choice reflects a commitment to maintaining compatibility and ease of use.

Swing-Away Peephole Covers

Within the domain of Evenheat's kiln creations, we are excited to unveil our swing-away peephole covers, a remarkable upgrade from traditional plug options. This innovation is the epitome of intelligent design!

Traditional plugs are infamous for their propensity to disappear or deteriorate over time. However, our robust peephole covers defy these challenges. Permanently affixed to the kiln, they effortlessly pivot open and close on your cue. Bid farewell to the perennial concerns of losing or damaging them. With this ingenious solution, ease of use and lasting durability coalesce beautifully.

Lid Prop

The HF 1813 comes thoughtfully fitted with a lid prop bar, designed to hold the lid securely and comfortably in its open position. This convenient addition pairs seamlessly with our meticulously designed lid handle, collectively elevating the simplicity and smoothness of the kiln's operation.

Relay Access Port

The HF 1813 features Evenheat's Relay Access Port, ingeniously designed for straightforward, hassle-free relay replacement without the need to remove the entire panel.

Users can effortlessly remove the access plate to reach the mechanical relays, bypassing the necessity to dismantle the control panel or navigate through intricate internal wiring. This process is incredibly straightforward and efficient, requiring nothing more than a screwdriver.

Considering that mechanical relays are bound to fail eventually, the inclusion of this relay access port by Evenheat proves to be extremely beneficial during such times.

While Pottery Pulse strongly recommends investing in the Quiet Drive Solid State Relay system, for those on a budget, this innovation serves as a valuable and user-friendly feature.

Full Stainless Steel Jackets

The concept of multi-section, multi-jacketed kilns was initially conceived to cut manufacturing costs and streamline the installation process, objectives that are undeniably admirable. However, this strategy often leads to a reduction in kiln quality—a sacrifice Evenheat is not willing to entertain.

Evenheat's dedication to superior craftsmanship is evident in their approach to kiln construction. Opting for complete stainless steel jackets that extend from the base to the lid, they prioritize enduring strength and stability. This intentional design choice ensures their kilns are impervious to leaks, wobbling, or structural weaknesses. Opting for an Evenheat kiln means choosing a product with full stainless jackets, where exceptional construction quality is not just an attribute; it's a commitment.

The HF 1813 offers a rich selection of control options, including the Icon, RampMaster II, Icon+, and Tap II.

Evenheat elevates these remarkable control systems by integrating Special Limits thermocouples for accurate temperature monitoring. They further optimize online application connectivity through the use of non-metallic faceplates to improve Wi-Fi reception.

Seeking to sidestep the pitfalls of mechanical relay failures and the associated maintenance costs?

Discover the revolutionary Quiet Drive Solid State Relay System from Evenheat, a marvel of innovation with no moving parts, promising a durable, maintenance-free lifespan. Revel in its outstanding performance, delivering precise and consistent heating to keep your kiln at peak performance without interruption.

Exploring the World of Relay Technology: Solid-state relays (SSRs) emerge as a robust, reliable choice over traditional mechanical relays with their moving parts and electromagnetic coils. SSRs harness a solid semiconductor, negating mechanical wear and offering significant advantages in managing kiln temperature.

Advantage 1 - Peerless Durability: SSRs excel in longevity, immune to the mechanical wear and electrical arcing that plague mechanical relays. The repetitive clicking from a kiln, indicative of mechanical relays at work, eventually leads to wear and subsequent repair costs. Evenheat's SSRs, in contrast, deliver a quiet, dependable performance that endures alongside your kiln.

Advantage 2 - Enhanced Temperature Accuracy: While mechanical relays are limited in cycling frequency to preserve their lifespan, SSRs can cycle up to 120 times per second, enabling quick adjustments and unparalleled temperature accuracy. All Evenheat controls, including the now-standard Icon controller, utilize the rapid cycling of SSRs for precise temperature regulation.

Advantage 3 - Prolonged Heating Element Life: SSRs incorporate Zero Crossing technology, switching at the AC power's zero-voltage point. This significantly extends heating elements' lifespans by maintaining optimal voltage levels, reducing wear in comparison to mechanical relays without this technology.

Design Excellence - 30 Amp Capacity: Evenheat selects SSRs rated for 30 amps but operates them at a safe 15 amps, ensuring a wide safety margin for consistent, reliable performance. This keeps the SSRs comfortably within their derating curve, ensuring they operate coolly and last longer, backed by Evenheat's quality promise.

Design Excellence - External SSR Heatsinks: Proper cooling is essential for the longevity of SSRs. Evenheat optimizes this by externally mounting SSR heatsinks, allowing unrestricted airflow and preventing heat buildup inside the control enclosure. This design isolates heat transfer between the control enclosure and the SSR, aided by standoffs that introduce a cooling air gap. This meticulous design ensures the SSRs operate at peak performance, evidenced by an impressive six-year track record of zero failures.
