Constructed from high quality, imported insolation materials (bricks and calciboard).
Most of our kilns are built into a steel frame for a comfortable working height. Optional stands are available for smaller units that are not fitted with a frame (Only on the VTFL-170, VTFL-250, and VTFL-340)
A chimney is fitted for improved moisture release from the heating chamber.
Our Elements are made from Kanthal wire (or equivalent), and are designed to fit snuggly into precision cut grooves to reduce possible damage.
A standard K-type thermocouple is fitted to all Van Tuyl Kilns. Other types of thermocouples can be fitted on request.
All kilns are fitted with the VT-36 programmable Microprocessor controller as a standard. This controller enables you to easily manage your kiln and can hold up to 36 programs.
The maximum recommended operating temperature is 1300°C
All steel parts are powder coated prior to assembly to protect them from corrosion.
An arched roof design is standard on most of the kilns and adds structural strength and improved heat circulation.
Some of the heavier freestanding models (VTFL-520 to VTFL1375) are fitted with wheels for mobility.
While we have a wide selection of Standard Kilns and Furnaces, we can also design and build custom units to your specific requirements.
