The Xpress E9A features a double-wall steel case with a brick firebox. This
double wall case keeps the outside cool even when firing for several
hours. Notice that the firebox is high above the base of the kiln;
keeping the space below the firebox completely cool. The firebrick
insulation means a long, slow cooling time, perfect for glass
annealing. The door includes a peephole for viewing the progress of
your projects. This model has a very roomy interior and the height will
accommodate one bronze clay firing box.
The Xpress E9A features the Sentry Xpress 4.0 controller by Orton. The
Sentry Xpress is a 3-button controller that has 5 speed settings and 4
programmable, segmented settings. The speed settings can be used by
entering in just the target temperature and hold/soak time, and the
segmented settings can be used to program anything from a single
segment firing to one with up to 8 segments. All this flexibility is
very user friendly. Watch our
video tutorial to see how easy it is to operate a digitally controlled kiln.
an eye on your work is important for glass and enamels. The Xpress E9A with the optional viewport
includes a small peephole in the door with a metal cover for looking in
on the progress of the firing. For a bigger view, order this model with
a 1” x 3” Viewport. Having a viewport on your kiln can cause some heat loss during firing. A fiber plug is available to place in the window
during firings which will help preserve the heat inside.
