TLA top loading glass casting kilns.

The TLA Range are Top Loaders built with a longer life in mind.

The kilns are of a square nature, rather than oval, which enables us to interlock the walls in the corners to give each side additional strength.

The walls are 6" thick to ensure for both low thermal loss, and low case temperatures. This provides very smooth annealing for larger pieces and retains heat to help with lengthy casting cycles.

The case is made with angle iron and lines with stainless steel mesh. Panels are then fitted to give a finished appearance. The kiln frames are then powder coated and oven baked.
The lids are stainless steel and stack bonded with non ceramic fibre, a tried and tested technique that guarantees no fibre droppage onto your work.
The lids are lifted with gas springs.

Each TLA is fitted with the impressive KCR32 programmer which has 32 resettable programs, each program has 32 segments, each segment has a ramp rate, a target temperature and a hold time.
The KCR32 can be programmed to go as slow as 0.1 degree per hour where required.
KCR32 details are here.

Automatic dampers can be fitted which are programmed via the kiln controller to open and close at any point during the firing. Obviously a big advantage as the vent can b used to release moisture and close at a given temperature or to open at critical cooling points to aid faster cooling.

All TLA kilns have a 36 month guarantee on all parts and elements.

Near vertical lid opening to give unrestricted load access.

 

The TLA has become popular with many top quality glass casting artists and establishments due to the extreme smoothness and eveness of the firing cycle that they produce making them perfect for casting thick work.

Each TLA is custom built to order.
