Kilncare HGT pick up kilns are based on our extremely reliable top loading range, but are modified to suit the Hot Glass Studio. Ideal for processes such as colour warming, adding inclusions, graal embryo and other hot glass work. HGT kilns have a heavy duty stainless steel chamber opening frame, designed to protect the kiln wall top against accidental damage whilst handling heavy items.


The stainless steel lid is assisted by gas springs which allow the lid to be opened at working temperatures. High grade insulation ensures low case temperatures, and rapid reclamation of heat after "at temperature" loading. The HGT frames are made from rust resistant metal, and are powder coated then oven baked.

The KCR32C is multi-program controller designed for glass, ceramics & pottery use. It is targeted towards glass use with 32 programs each of up to 32 segments. Each segment is a controlled heating/cooling ramp followed by a soak. It is supplied pre-programmed with 9 typical glass programs and 9 tpical ceramics programs (which can be over-written).

The slow rate capability of the KCR32C, down to 1c per hour, makes it the perfect controller for complicated glass cycles.
