Kilns - Olympic GF5E Glass Kiln


Olympic GF5E Glass Kiln

Elements in the firing chamber are used to evenly heat the glass piece and the lid element is used when fusing temperature is reached, which provides accurate, even heating throughout the kiln and enhanced control during slumping and fusing-- the electronic controller allows you to get accurate results time after time.

Intended for use with glass, this kiln is suitable for copper enameling, glass fusing & slumping and PMC work.

Click the Arrows to Choose Your Kiln Options:

truck This Kiln can be sent via Delivery Truck only.  Call us and we can give you a quote for shipping right to your door.  We will call or email you when your kiln ships.   We will have the freight company call you 24 hours before they deliver.  Your kiln will ship Freight Collect so you know you are getting the actual freight bill to your address with no inflated prices.  Keep in mind that although optional shelves and furniture kits are additional dollars up front, they are much cheaper to ship to you with the kiln rather than as a separate shipment after your kiln arrives.
Flash Arm
This option provides a lid brace arm for flash venting and raking glass. The arm is positioned in front of the kiln for easy access and may be set with a clearance of 2 3/4" or 4" and it has a wood handle which keeps the Flash Arm cool for easy operation.

Olympic's 3-Key controller is standard on all of the kilns unless otherwise stated.  To set a numeric value for a setting, the up and down arrows are used to increment or decrement to the value.  Holding down the up/down arrow will increase/decrease the value in larger increments. Olympic's Electronic Controller for glass kilns is designed specifically for glass. This controller allows the flexibility to program "on the fly" and make changes to the program while firing. Stores up to six user programs with eight segments per program and programs 5 & 6 can be combined to create a 16-segment program. The controller will add time in 5 minute increments, has 3 speeds - slow, medium, fast - multi-zone control, delay start, alarm, error codes and computer interface is available.
