MELTING KILN, Mod. FCN
A laboratory melting kiln with a movable crucible, that is, the bottom of the kiln, where the crucible is located, is movable. At the moment that the mixture will be molten, one lowers the bottom of the kiln with the crucible by means of an appropriate mechanism. At this point one takes the crucible by means of adequate tongs and pours the molten mass in a container with water.
The quantity of the mixture that can be molten is approx. 600-1000 g. at a time.
The structure of the kiln is made of steel, stove enameled at 180°C. with epoxy paints.
The thermal insulation consists of panels of ceramic fibre with a high alumina content, suitable for the working temperature of the kiln.
The heating is obtained by means of Super Kanthal elements, which do not require a protective ambience and which do not present ageing phenomena. In this way one has the advantage of a simple and safe operation of the kiln and a long lifetime of the heating elements with the possibility of exchanging one element only without changing the behaviour of the others.
The temperature and the firing curve are controlled by a microprocessor based controller, model K1PX, with which it is possible to program 4 cycles of 8 steps each.
