Oval Mastery for Eclectic Creations

Designed for artists who venture beyond the conventional, the 2518HE’s oval shape is perfect for sizable and irregularly shaped artworks. It integrates a durable 3” brick construction, complemented by a protective 2" blank brick row in the base, enhancing the kiln's efficiency and extending its operational life.

Technologically Advanced Build for Superior Results

Built upon Olympic's esteemed electrical box design, the 2518HE includes top-tier heat shields and ventilation systems to maintain the electrical components at optimal temperatures. Its evenly distributed heating elements ensure consistent heat throughout the firing chamber, producing uniform and predictable results for every artistic endeavor.

Innovative Features for Enhanced Artistic Control

This kiln is equipped with indispensable features such as a pilot light, robust metal stand, a resilient stainless steel jacket, lid lift assist, and the user-friendly Bartlett 3K-CF electronic controller. These components simplify the operation of the kiln, delivering precision and ease in programming the ideal firing cycles.

Personalized Options to Suit Your Artistic Process

Elevate your art with optional upgrades like the Genesis touchscreen controller or the 12-key digital KilnStar controller. These advanced features, including delay start, preheat, cone offset, and skip-step, allow for intricate and finely-tuned firings. Stay informed and in control with comprehensive access to firing profiles and other essential data.

Extended Customization for Complete Firing Flexibility

Select from additional features such as a Type S thermocouple, 480 volts, 2 or 3-zone control, and a ventilation kit to further customize your kiln for safety and functionality. These choices enable the 2518HE to perfectly align with the specific needs of your artistic practice. For pricing on the 480 voltage configuration, please contact Pottery Pulse directly.
