The Caldera is a digitally controlled brick kiln designed for glass fusing, bead annealing and glaze testing. The Caldera is also ideal for bronze, copper and silver alloy clays because it heats from all 4 sides. The Caldera holds heat for hours making it excellent for glass annealing.
Maximum firing temperature is 2350F. The kiln bricks are wrapped in a polished stainless steel case. The firing chamber is 8" x 8" x 6-3/4" deep. The lid lifts off for loading and unloading. This model features a Bead Collar and a Viewport window in the lid. The Viewport window allows you can monitor glass and enamel firings. The Bead Collar allows you to insert mandrels into the kiln through the bead door for annealing without losing heat.
The Caldera is digitally controlled by the Sentry Xpress 3-key controller. This controller offers cone, degree Fahrenheit and centigrade modes and includes 5 speed settings and 4 program settings. the controller does not offer presets. presets are programs that are hard-wired into the controller and cannot be changed. Presets are not as helpful as they sound. Since they cannot be changed, you'll find them very limiting. The Sentry Xpress is very easy to operate, so you'll appreciate the flexibility that it offers you as you learn all the wonderful things you can do with your kiln.
