Kiln Vent and Kiln Hoods

Vent-Sure by L&L Kilns
L&L Kiln Vent Sure Diagram

WALL MOUNTED VENT BLOWER
The vent blower motor is mounted on the wall. This keeps the heat of the kiln away from the motor (for long motor life) and keeps the motor vibration away from the kiln (which can cause ware to move, damage to the kiln, and misfiring of cones on a Dawson Kiln Sitter).

VACUUM IS SAFER THAN PRESSURE
The vent tubing is kept under vacuum instead of pressure (unlike competitive brands). This insures that any leak in the tubing does not blow noxious fumes into your room.

EXTERNAL VENTING IS BETTER
External venting is safer and surer than venting to the inside of your kiln room with a filter.

LARGE CAPACITY
The blower vents up to 130 CFM (cubic feet per minute). This will handle up to a 20 cubic foot kiln (and usually larger). More than one vent can be attached to a kiln. Only 1.37 amps.

SIX FOOT POWER CORD WITH ON/OFF SWITCH
The blower motor features a 6 foot long 120 volt 15 amp power cord. An On/Off switch is located on the cord.

ADJUSTABLE VENT CONTROL
A vacuum bypass on the kiln bypass/collection box adjusts the amount of venting from the system. Don't waste heat and energy by venting more than you need. Adjust vent to kiln size.

15-FEET OF FLEXIBLE ALUMINUM DUCT
15 feet of flexible expandable aluminum 3" diameter duct is included along with necessary hose clamps. Longer lengths or lengths of 3" stove pipe can be used as well. Length can be as great as 60 feet horizontal or vertical with up to three 90 degree bends.

Skutt EnviroVent 2

Skutt EnviroVent 2 on Sale Today

VENT 2 KILNS W/ 1 MOTOR
Now you can vent 2 Kilns with one vent. The new 140 CFM Motor allows you to vent 2 kilns up to 12 Cubic Feet each, or one kiln between 12 and 24 Cubic Feet, with one Envirovent 2 Motor.

WALL MOUNTED MEANS NO HEAT AND NO VIBRATION
The new design is wall mounted. This moves the vent motor away from under the kiln so the motor is no longer exposed to the heat and can no longer transfer any vibration into the kiln.

PLENUM CUP RETAINS SEAL THROUGHOUT FIRINGSPRING LOADED PLENUM CUP RETAINS SEAL THROUGHOUT FIRING
As your kiln heats up the brick expands. When it expands the hot face of the kiln floor, the inside, expands more than the cold face or underside. This causes the slab to cup, or become slightly concave on the bottom. The result is that the center of the kiln floor moves upward at higher temperatures. The spring loaded cup follows the floor ensuring a tight seal throughout the firing process.

NEGATIVE PRESSURE MEANS NO LEAKING
Since the vent is wall mounted it pulls the air through the duct work instead of pushing it. This means if you were to ever form a leak in your duct work the fumes would not be pushed into the room.

ABILITY TO CONTROL WITH KILNMASTER OR GLASS MASTER CONTROLLER
Now with the purchase of the new Skutt EnviroLink you can control exactly when the Envirovent 2 turns on and off during a firing on a GlassMaster or KilnMaster kiln.

SAME QUALITY VENTING
The EnviroVent 2 is a Downdraft Ventilation System designed to extract fumes from your electric kiln and vent
them outdoors before they have a chance to enter the room. Because it is a DownDraft Ventilation System the
EnviroVent 2 also improves the firing atmosphere in the kiln while it is protecting you from the odorous fumes
that can be emitted from certain clay bodies and glazes when they are fired. Venting FAQ's

Here's How It Works

A designated number of holes are drilled in the lid and floor of the kiln either in the factory or on location. A spring loaded plenum cup (see diagram) is placed under the kiln and tensioned between the floor of the kiln and the floor under the kiln. The holes in the floor of the kiln are drilled in a tight pattern so the plenum cup can cover them all. The other end of the cup is connected by 3" ducting to a fan which is generally mounted on the wall. On the opposite end of the fan the air is ducted through the wall to the outside air. The plenum cup has 3 additional holes from which it draws room temperature air to mix with the heated air from the kiln. This serves 2 purposes. Since the kiln air is mixed with cooler room air the air coming out of the end of the vent is never hotter than an average hair dryer. Secondly, the holes in the plenum cup are sized to reduce the vacuum on the kiln chamber so only a small amount of air is moving through the kiln. This ensures the firing time is not affected and the ware is not at risk.

Skutt EnviroLink

Skutt EnviroLink

WHAT IS THE ENVIROLINK?

The EnviroLink is an electrical switching device that can be controlled by an automatic kiln to determine when a vent turns on and off.

WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM AN ENVIROLINK?

Teachers - Even though most vents do not draw a lot of energy, most teachers do not feel comfortable letting the fan motor run all weekend or even overnight. The EnviroLink will shut the vent off when the program is complete or when the kiln reaches a specific temperature. Since it works with ConeFire Mode, it is very easy to program.

Potters - Crystal Glazes and Cone 6 Glazes can be very sensitive to cooling rates. Artists can now use the Ramp/Hold programming mode to control whether the kiln vent is on for each segment of the firing program.

Glass Artist - Artists who fire glass want to cool quick and hold steady. With the EnviroLink they can pro-gram the vent to come on when crash cooling and then turn off during annealing when they are trying to hold the temperature steady.

WHAT KILNS WILL IT WORK ON?
The EnviroLink will work on any Skutt KilnMaster or GlassMaster Kiln which was manufactured after January of 2001. If you are not sure how old your kiln is write down your serial number along with the model number, voltage and phase and call Skutt.The EnviroLink will also work with many competitive brands. Call your particular kiln manufacturer to find out.

WHAT OTHER VENTS WILL IT CONTROL?

It will control the EnviroVent, The EnviroVent 2 and any other DownDraft Vent that draws less than 12 Amps. Consult with your Vent manufacturer to be sure.

Vent-A-Kiln

is an easy-to-install system designed for the removal of kiln firing emissions. With Vent-A-Kiln, unpleasant fumes, odors, and heat are captured at the source and safely removed from the area.

Pre-engineered, Variable-Height Electric-Kiln Ventilation Systems

 

Vent-A-Kiln

Electric kilns use large quantities of high-current electricity to generate the necessary heat to properly fire artwork. In some instances, internal temperatures can exceed 2200º F. Further, the clay medium experiences a metamorphosis, which can result in toxic and odorous fumes exiting the kiln. These heated fumes can accumulate and create an uncomfortable and dangerous environment to work in.

Vent-A-Kiln was the first to create a solution to this problem. By using heat's natural tendency to rise, fumes and heat are safely exhausted away from the work area. This allows the craftsman to create new work while firing ready pieces.

Please measure the exterior dimension of your kiln and choose among the following systems that best fit your size. Remember, if you have a square, rectangular or oval kiln, you must measure the longest dimension; that is, corner to opposite corner. Round or multi-faced kilns need only have the diameter measured.

Orton Vent Master

Vent-Master

How does the Orton Vent Master Work?

A small amount of air is drawn into and through the kiln, collecting fumes and odors while improving firing conditions. Small holes in the kiln lid let air into the kiln. Air is drawn through the kiln drawing fumes and odors out through the floor. The removed gases are then exhausted through ducting to the outside.

Where does it Attach to the Kiln?

There are some vent holes which must be drilled into the floor and lid. We know, it's a new kiln and you don't want to drill holes in it. We don't blame you, but it has to be done. Ordering your new kiln complete with a vent system relieves you of the need to drill. We'll do it for you!! The Vent Master fits underneath the kiln using a small intake plenum. Simply position the plenum under the kiln, taking care to position it within the vent hole area and tighten the turnbuckle for a snug fit.

Why is it important to vent the Kiln?

Many fired products contain organic materials that consume oxygen during the early portion of the firing. Carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide are formed. New air is needed to replace the oxygen that is used.
Many fired products require an oxygen atmosphere to develop properly. Oxygen allows for brighter and more vibrant color, especially red, gold's, luster's and decals. Oxygen also allows for the complete burnout of organics which reduces glaze fit problems like crazing. It also eliminates porcelain mildew due to carbon.

Will it fit on my kiln?

Generally, yes. Most kilns do offer an open area between the bottom of the kiln and floor surface. It's this area that is used for the Vent Master kiln vent.  Please feel free to contact us regarding vent usage on particular models.
