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.
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.
