The Swing View harmonizes exceptionally well with touchscreen controls such as the TAP I and Icon+, guaranteeing the perfect alignment of the viewing angle. Its convenience is sure to be warmly embraced.

3" Firebrick with No Loss in Chamber Volume

As the evolution of kiln design unfolded, the 2-1/2" firebrick played a pivotal role. However, the rise in high-temperature requirements marked the dominance of the 3" firebrick, prompting many kiln manufacturers to make adjustments. Their choice was to shrink the firing chamber to accommodate the thicker insulation while leaving the kiln's external dimensions unchanged.

In contrast, Evenheat pursued a distinctive path. Instead of reducing the chamber's size, they retained its ample interior space and expanded the external dimensions. This innovative approach preserves the chamber's capacity, ensuring a seamless fit for standard kiln furniture. This considerate design decision underscores a commitment to maintaining compatibility and user-friendliness.

Swing-Away Peephole Covers

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

Conventional plugs tend to go missing or get damaged over time. In contrast, Evenheat's integrated peephole covers stay securely attached to the kiln, enabling convenient swinging open and closing. This design ensures they won't be lost or suffer damage.

Lid Security Bar

The HF 2918 is thoughtfully equipped with a lid prop bar, expertly crafted to maintain the lid securely in an open position. This handy feature works in perfect harmony with our carefully engineered lid handle, enhancing the ease and fluidity of the kiln's operation.

Relay Access Port

Revel in its superior performance, delivering precise and consistent heating to maintain your kiln's optimal functionality.

Exploring Relay Technology: Solid-state relays (SSRs) emerge as a robust and dependable alternative to conventional mechanical relays, 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.
