36 month guarantee on all parts

THE 2013 FK RANGE CONTINUES TO BE THE UK'S FAVOURITE FUSING AND SLUMPING KILNS.

The combination of reliability, quality, reputation and high levels of recommendation keep the FK at the top of the pile. They are the most proven kilns made in the U.K. The list below are just some of the standard features on every FK kiln.

Features include

  • Quartz tube, Kanthal A1 "infra-red" element technology.
  • Side and roof ventilation with "anti dust" stainless steel flaps.
  • Kilncare's unique breathing Stainless Steel slatted roof.
  • Flat, level floor.
  • Replaceable, low density brick floor.
  • Gas Strut lid lift assistance.
  • Ultra-fast response Inconel thermocouple.
  • Choice of controls available.
  • 9 pre-set but resettable glass programs.
  • Low level electrics to ensure cool running and long life.
  • Oven baked, powder coated metalwork.
  • Lockable castors.
  • Can be used single phase or 3 phase and neutral.
  • Can be split for tight access into workshops or studios
  • British designed and built.
  • 36 month guarantee on ALL parts including the element system.
  • CE.
Unique Stainless Steel "breathing" roof system.
Kilncare unique stainless slatted roof section

Design is very much at the fore-front of these kilns and there is no better example of this than our unique, stainless steel lid design which both vastly reduces cooling time and aids in the expulsion of moisture from within the kiln chamber. 
There are vent holes in the roof of the kiln to aid with faster cooling and help extract steam if any moisture is present.
The roof vent holes are closed off with stainless steel vent flaps with our unique, anti-dust, glass fibre insulation pads.
There are viewing/cooling points in the side/s of the kilns.

The entire range is designed to reach 700c in around 30-40 minutes except the extreme sized versions. Although this is faster than most glass will withstand, it does help to quickly stabilize the kiln temperature if the lid has been opened whilst hot for raking etc.
 

The floor of these kilns is made from high grade, lightwieght insulation bricks that give both a structurally steady surface to place the work on and a thermally steady base to aid in maximum glass results.
Each floor is hand worked to ensure the bed is as flat as possible. 
As the bricks are not cemented in, they are easily replaced if required.
The floor is flat and has no retaining wall, this design is a real bonus when loading larger pieces into the kiln as they can be gently slid into position rather than having to lower then into, what may be, a space not much bigger than the glass, making handling difficult. The flat floor method also gives a much clearer visual inspection of the work before it is fired.

"Infra-red" Quartz tube element system

"infra red" heating system

The elements are wound with Kanthal A1, renowned as the worlds best element wire. The elements in inside quartz tubes and the quartz tube element system we use is becoming widely known as "infra-red" kiln heating.
The heating system is in the roof only on FK kilns.
The heating system runs from left to right on all FK kilns apart from FK285 and larger due to the size of span required for them.

Breatheable and expandable floor construction on larger models

Proven under floor stability

On the FK6 and above the under floor steel sheet is replaced with heavy duty walk mesh to aid cooling and to keep a strong, stable bed.

The metalwork of the kiln has many features of its own.
The handle and the rear power box can be easily removed to reduce the kiln to its smallest possible size as more increasingly, these kilns are finding their way through small doors. If that is still not enough, the kiln will split down to 2 sections, the chamber and the base/legs.
The handle has 2 positions. In its default position it is at 90 degrees to the chamber and can be easily altered to be in a more down facing position to assist shorter users

As with all our kilns, the frames are powder coated and oven baked.

All FK kilns are on lockable castors.

Each kiln has an over temperature heat fuse circuit with its own safety contactor to protect the kiln in the event of a disaster.

The electrics are mounted below the level of the floor and are also to the outside of the frame to combat high ambient temperatures under the floor and so vastly increasing the life of the electrics.

FK4                                                                       FK5

The FK range is designed to be totally functional, simple and easily to maintain.
For instance, in the rare event of having to replace an element or tube, the lid is easily removed and the kiln is worked on like working on a bench, this is as easy as it gets and requires very little space around the kiln.

The lid seal is not stuck on but is held in by a removable stainless steel picture frame and as such, in the event of damage, it is fully replaceable leaving a factory fitted finish that will give years more trouble free use.

All FK kilns are fired to 800c with the chosen programmer before despatch to ensure perfect operation, calibration and removal of most of the binder vapours that are released by all kilns on the first firing.

All FK kilns carry a 3 year guarantee on all parts including the elements.

Whether you buy your kiln through ourselves or one of our many agents you can rest assured that service and quality back up is never far away and technical questions can be answered by the actual people that make the kiln - priceless.

All kilns contain no ceramic fibre.
