Transform Your Pottery Experience with the Olympic Kilns - 1818FLE

A New Horizon in Ceramic Artistry

Introducing the Olympic Kilns 1818FLE, a state-of-the-art kiln designed to cater to the evolving needs of both novice and expert ceramic artists. This model excels in providing superior control, precise firing, and a platform for boundless artistic expression. Its remarkable features and customizable options position it as a top-tier choice for ceramic enthusiasts.

Redefining the Art of Firing

The 1818FLE takes precision in pottery to a whole new level. Attain the exact firing results you aspire to, with capabilities reaching up to Cone 8/2300°F. Every aspect of this electric kiln is finely tuned to breathe vibrancy into your ceramic pieces with unmatched precision.

(Note: Opting for the quartz viewing window adjusts the maximum firing temperature to 1700°F.)

Master Your Creative Process

Select a controller that complements your unique pottery practice.

The standard offering in the 1818FLE is the reliable 3K-CF Bartlett Instruments controller, ideal for infrequent use, capable of storing up to 4 custom firing profiles with 8 segments each.

Pottery Pulse, however, advises considering either the digital KilnStar controller or the Genesis Touchscreen controller for an elevated level of customization and control. For an additional $128, the Genesis controller offers the ability to program up to 12 different firing sequences, each with 32 segments, ensuring complete command over your firing process.

Customizable Door Options

The 1818FLE, as a front-loading kiln, presents a choice of either a bottom-hinged or a guillotine-hinged door, allowing you to pick the option that best aligns with your operational style.

Personalize Your Kiln

Customization lies at the heart of the Olympic Kilns 1818FLE. Begin by selecting the voltage that matches your studio's setup. Follow this by choosing the controller and door hinge type that align with your preferences. Further tailor your kiln with additional features like a bead door, a quartz viewing window, consider a Type S thermocouple, caster wheels, a ventilation system/kit, and more, to construct a kiln that truly resonates with your artistic vision.

The Advantage of Solid State Relays

For peak temperature control, nothing compares to solid state relays. These high-efficiency, quick-acting relays significantly enhance temperature accuracy, prolong the life of kiln elements, and contribute to energy savings. Built to last as long as your kiln, they minimize the need for future replacements. Unlike mechanical relays, which are prone to wear and tear, solid state relays provide reliability and peace of mind.

We recommend upgrading to solid state relays and a higher-level controller for an unparalleled kiln experience.

Ease of Movement and Enhanced Safety

Featuring an optional stand with caster wheels, the 1818FLE ensures easy mobility. For additional safety, consider the power interrupt switch option, which disconnects the power to the elements when the kiln door is opened, safeguarding both you and your artistic creations.

Maximize Chamber Space with a Furniture Kit

Designed specifically for the 1818FLE, the furniture kit includes two 16" x 16" rectangle shelves, four sets of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, AND 6-inch small square posts, along with a 1-lb. bag of kiln wash. These components are indispensable for fully utilizing the spacious interior with each firing cycle.
