The UltraLite Beehive Kiln is a table top jewelry kiln used to fire FS999 Fine Silver Clay, EZ960 Sterling Silver Clay, PMC and Art Clay Silver. It will fire glass cabochons, over glaze enamels and is good for metal annealing and heat treating. The UltraLite is also popular with jewelers world-wide for working with granulation, keum boo, and enameling techniques. And, it's possible to fuse small glass projects as well.

The heating chamber of the kiln measures 3 1/2" in diameter and the exterior measures 5" in diameter. 3" Element. It uses only 250 watts of power. The 15" cord plugs into standard 120V household power and heats directly to 1550F / 843C. The temperature can be raised to 1600F / 871C with the use of the Flat Cover Accessory.

The Ultra Lite Beehive Kiln is shipped ready to use for granulation and enameling. Spatula Included. Weighs 2 pounds.
