Craft Excellence with the Olympic Kilns 2318E Electric Kiln

Elevate your artistic journey with the Olympic Kilns 2318E Electric Kiln. Ideal for home studios, educational environments, and professional workshops, this kiln is synonymous with innovative design, adaptability, and high efficiency, appealing to a broad spectrum of artists and educators.

Versatile and Mobile Design

The 2318E's modular, stackable build is a breakthrough in kiln design, facilitating smooth transportation and adaptable placement. Its sectional structure simplifies relocation and maintenance, allowing focus on individual sections for repairs or adjustments, without the need to disassemble the entire unit.

Superior Firing Capabilities

With its ample interior dimensions of 23-3/8" W x 18" D, the 2318E efficiently reaches Cone 8/2300°F. The kiln integrates Olympic's renowned electrical box design with heat shields and balanced heating elements, ensuring consistent temperature control and cool operation for optimal firing results.

Precision Control for Enhanced Creativity

The 2318E comes with the Bartlett 3K-CF electronic controller for meticulous firing control. Enhance your firing process with additional options like the Genesis touchscreen or the 12-key KilnStar controller, offering features such as delay start and cone offset, for more refined firing programs.

Personalized to Your Firing Preferences

Customize your 2318E to meet your specific needs with options like 1-phase or 3-phase wiring, a Type S thermocouple, automatic lid shutoff, a rolling stand with caster wheels, multi-zone control, and a ventilation kit.

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.

Flexibility for Various Artistic Media

Primarily crafted for pottery and ceramics, the 2318E is also adaptable for glasswork with the addition of a dual-media lid element.

Solid State Relays are also highly recommended for their quieter operation, precise temperature control, and longer lifespan, thereby improving the kiln's efficiency and performance. So, whether you need the Lid Element or not, Pottery Pulse strongly recommends consideration of the Solid State Relays optional upgrade.
