Get it Hotter with the Olympic Kilns 1818HE Electric Kiln

Embrace the pinnacle of ceramic and glasswork innovation with the Olympic Kilns 1818HE Electric Kiln. This advanced version, tailored for both home studios and professional settings, brings new heights of artistic potential to your fingertips.

Superior High-Fire Capability

The 1818HE sets itself apart with its remarkable high-fire capacity, reaching up to Cone 10 and 2350°F/1288°C inside a chamber spanning 17.5" wide by 18" deep. This enhancement opens a new realm of possibilities for ceramic artists, allowing for the creation of high-fired stoneware and porcelain, renowned for their strength and translucence.

Innovative Stackable Design
Maintaining its user-friendly stackable design, the 1818HE offers effortless assembly and disassembly. Its modular structure not only facilitates easy transportation and fits through limited spaces but also simplifies maintenance. This feature is a boon for studios where space and accessibility are key considerations.

Consistent and Reliable Firing

Equipped with Olympic’s trusted electrical box design, the 1818HE ensures cool operation of its components, enhancing longevity and safety. The balanced heating elements are engineered to provide uniform heat distribution, guaranteeing consistent results across all your firing projects.

Advanced Electronic Control
The 1818HE is outfitted with the intuitive Bartlett 3K-CF electronic controller. This allows for easy programming of cone fire or ramp/hold processes, putting precision and control at the core of your creative process.

Robust Build and Assurance

This kiln is designed to endure, featuring a sturdy metal stand, a pilot light, and a stainless steel jacket. With these robust features, the 1818HE is a reliable partner in your artistic journey, backed by a One-Year Limited Kiln Warranty.

Customization at Your Fingertips

Personalize your 1818HE with options like the Genesis touchscreen controller or the 12-key KilnStar digital controller for enhanced firing program flexibility. These upgrades offer advanced features such as delay start and cone offset, ensuring precise firings tailored to your specific artistic needs.

Expanded Options for Versatility

Adapt the 1818HE to your unique artistic requirements with additional features like a Type S thermocouple, 2 or 3-zone control, and a vent system. The Dual Media Lid Element is a game-changer for those who also engage in glasswork, transforming the kiln for glass fusing and slumping.

Pottery Pulse also highly recommends you upgrade to solid state. Avoid the wear and tear of moving parts that is inevitable with mechanical relays, while enjoying better heating element operation, more accurate temperature control, longer element life, and overall improved kiln performance.

Additionally, beyond the 208 and 240 volt configurations, other voltage choices are available. Beyond these two choices, we ask that you contact Pottery Pulse for more information.
