Elevate Your Crafting with the Olympic Kilns 149FLE: An Exceptional Kiln for Precision and Reliability

Experience Unmatched Performance with Solid State Relays

Discover the 149FLE (Front Loading, Electric), a cutting-edge kiln that promises to transform your ceramic and glass crafting endeavors. Designed for discerning artists and professionals, this model boasts a generous interior, measuring 14 1/2″ wide, 9″ deep, and 10″ high at the peak. Capable of reaching a formidable Cone 8/2300°F, it ensures consistent, high-quality results for your most ambitious projects.

(Please note that if you do opt for the quartz viewing window option, the maximum firing temperature is 1700°F.)

Why Upgrade to Solid State Relays?

  • Superior Reliability: Solid State Relays (SSRs) offer exceptional durability and reliability compared to standard mechanical relays. With no moving parts, SSRs are less prone to wear and tear, ensuring a longer lifespan for your kiln.
  • Enhanced Precision: SSRs provide more accurate temperature control, crucial for achieving perfect firing results. This precision ensures uniform heat distribution, critical for delicate and complex projects.
  • Energy Efficiency: Enjoy reduced energy consumption with SSRs. Their efficient operation leads to lower electricity bills and a smaller carbon footprint.
  • Quieter Operation: SSRs operate silently, making your crafting environment more peaceful and enjoyable.

State-of-the-Art Features for the Modern Crafter

Olympic's 149FLE comes equipped with a range of standard features:

  • Pilot Light & Stainless Steel Jacket: For safety and durability.
  • Attached stand: For safety and effective operation - proper heat management, air circulation, leveling.
  • Bartlett 3K-CF Electronic Controller: Easy-to-use with scrolling arrows for cone fire or ramp/hold programming.
  • Bottom-hinged door: Easy loading

Optional Features to Consider

Yes, the standard kiln will make you happy. A few of these options added on and you might be bouncing off the walls with unbridled joy!

Pottery Pulse always recommends an upgrade to the one of the two digital controller options: the Genesis Touchscreen or 12-Key Digital KilnStar Controller. They offer advanced ramp-hold programs, delay start, preheat, cone offset, skip-step, and more, more customizable firing profiles with an ability to review / adjust profiles for precision control, and so much more. Bottom line - they are better controllers that will provide you a better experience.

Additional options for a more fully-tailored experience include a guillotine-style lift door, bead door, quartz viewing window (choose from one of two size/configuration options), Type S thermocouple, casters, and a vent kit.

    Furniture Kits for Complete Flexibility

    This is a really a must have too. There are many reasons you want kiln furniture, but just a few are:

    • Maximize space in your kiln's chamber for both greater efficiency (fire more pieces each time)
    • Better results from more even heat distribution
    • Kiln protection by keeping  glaze drips, clay debris, or other materials that can be damaging away from the kiln's interior surfaces. 

    The 149FLE customized furniture kit includes (2) 12” x 7” rectangle shelves, (4) each of 1, 3, and 5-inch small square posts, and a 1-lb bag of kiln wash.
