Digital Handheld Pyrometer Thermocouple Balanced Elements
Digital Handheld Pyrometer
 The FireBox 8 now comes standard with the versatile digital handheld pyrometer. The liquid crystal display is easy to read even in bright daylight. This reliable hand-held pyrometer weighs only 5 ounces and measures in degrees F up to 1999F Max temperature. Replace the Type-K thermocouple in seconds with a simple plug-in connection.
 The low mass of Skutt thermocouples ensures that changes in temperature are measured quickly making it one of the most responsive thermocouples on the market.
Balanced Elements
 Nearly all Skutt kilns have Computer Balanced Elements. This means we design the elements so that more heat is put in areas of the kiln that naturally fire cooler. The top and bottom of the kiln lose heat faster than the center so Skutt puts hotter elements (more power) in those areas.

The figures above indicate how a kiln with Balanced Elements will take a naturally unbalanced chamber and adjust it to be balanced.

Skutt Kiln 2 Year Warranty
Skutt 2 Year Warranty

Skutt’s 2 year warranty is straight forward. If you have a failed component on your kiln within 2 years of purchasing it, we will fix it. We will pay parts AND labor. Many of our full service distributors will even repair the kiln on site. Due to the fact that it is possible to exceed the estimated life of a thermocouple before the end of the warranty period, thermocouples are the only items we do not cover under our warranty.
