Key features of this design include the absence of a connection to the kiln body, a single-point lifting system, and a focus on allowing the lid to function naturally.

In contrast, competing lid lift designs attach the lifting mechanism directly to the kiln itself. This places all the lifting forces on the kiln chamber, leading to significant weakening and damage over time. Our Dyna-Lift takes a different approach by channeling all lifting forces to the kiln stand itself.

The Dyna-Lift is the ultimate Lid Lift Assist that ensures no damage to your kiln!

Multi-zone Control

The HF 2318 is equipped with an advanced multi-zone control system. This technology involves the use of multiple thermocouples (temperature sensors) to effectively manage and maintain the heat levels within the firing chamber.

Swing View Equipped

The HF 2318 incorporates its temperature controls seamlessly within Evenheat's Swing View Adjustable Enclosure.

This feature comprises a swivel, lift-up enclosure that allows you to adjust the control panel to the optimal angle for convenient viewing and programming. When you're done, simply lower it back into position for a clear view from any location in your studio. The process is straightforward and efficient.

The Swing View pairs exceptionally well with touchscreen controls like the TAP I and Icon+, ensuring the perfect alignment of the viewing angle. Its convenience is certain to be well-received.

3" Firebrick with No Loss in Chamber Volume

As the history of kiln design progressed, the 2-1/2" firebrick played a fundamental role. However, the emergence of high-temperature requirements signaled the ascendancy of the 3" firebrick, leading many kiln manufacturers to adapt. They chose to shrink the firing chamber to accommodate the thicker insulation while keeping the kiln's external dimensions unchanged.

In contrast, Evenheat took a distinct path. Instead of reducing the chamber's size, they maintained its generous interior space and increased the external dimensions. This innovative approach preserves the chamber's capacity, ensuring a seamless fit for standard kiln furniture. This thoughtful design choice reflects a commitment to maintaining compatibility and user-friendliness.

Swing-Away Peephole Covers

Evenheat's kiln designs incorporate swing-away peephole covers, departing from the conventional use of plugs.

Traditional plugs often have a tendency to become lost or damaged over time. In contrast, Evenheat's integrated peephole covers remain securely attached to the kiln, allowing for convenient swinging open and closing. This design guarantees that they won't be misplaced or suffer damage.

Lid Security Bar

The HF 2318 is considerately furnished with a lid prop bar, skillfully designed to securely hold the lid in an open position. This convenient addition seamlessly complements our meticulously engineered lid handle, collectively improving the ease and smoothness of the kiln's operation.

Relay Access Port

The HF 2318 highlights Evenheat's Relay Access Port, a cleverly designed feature that simplifies and streamlines relay replacement without the necessity of disassembling the entire panel.

Users can easily remove the access plate to gain direct access to the mechanical relays, eliminating the need to remove the control panel or deal with intricate internal wiring. This process is remarkably straightforward and efficient, requiring only a screwdriver.

Acknowledging that mechanical relays may eventually encounter issues, Evenheat's introduction of the relay access port proves to be an invaluable resource during such situations.

Exploring ways to mitigate the issues associated with mechanical relay failures and the associated maintenance costs?

Embark on a journey with Evenheat's Quiet Drive Solid State Relay System, a pinnacle of innovation characterized by its absence of moving parts, offering a long-lasting, maintenance-free existence. Revel in its superior performance, providing precise and consistent heating to uphold your kiln's optimal functionality.

Exploring Relay Technology: Solid-state relays (SSRs) emerge as a robust and dependable alternative to conventional mechanical relays, which are known for their moving parts and electromagnetic coils. SSRs employ a solid semiconductor mechanism, eliminating mechanical wear and providing significant advantages in kiln temperature management.

Advantage 1 - Exceptional Durability: SSRs are renowned for their extended lifespan, resistant to the mechanical wear and electrical arcing common in mechanical relays. The familiar clicking sound often associated with kilns signifies the operation of mechanical relays, which over time leads to wear and the need for costly repairs. Conversely, Evenheat's SSRs offer silent and reliable operation that aligns seamlessly with your kiln.

Advantage 2 - Superior Temperature Precision: Mechanical relays have limited cycling frequencies to prolong their lifespan, while SSRs can cycle as frequently as 120 times per second, enabling swift adjustments and unmatched temperature precision. All Evenheat controls, including the standard Icon controller, benefit from the rapid cycling of SSRs to ensure precise temperature control.

Advantage 3 - Prolonged Heating Element Life: SSRs incorporate Zero Crossing technology, engaging and disengaging at the zero-voltage point of AC power cycles. This significantly extends the lifespan of heating elements by ensuring they operate at optimal voltage, reducing wear compared to mechanical relays lacking this feature.

Design Excellence - 30 Amp Capacity: Evenheat carefully selects SSRs with a 30 amp rating but operates them at a cautious 15 amps, providing a significant safety margin for reliable performance. This practice ensures SSRs remain well within their derating curve, promoting cooler operation and enhanced longevity, all upheld by Evenheat's commitment to quality.

Design Excellence - External SSR Heatsinks: Effective cooling is essential for the longevity of SSRs. Evenheat addresses this by externally mounting SSR heatsinks, improving airflow and preventing heat buildup inside the control enclosure. This design approach minimizes heat transfer between the control enclosure and the SSR, with standoffs creating a gap for cooling air. This meticulous approach guarantees that SSRs function at their optimal capacity, as evidenced by an impressive six-year track record of zero failures.
