Kilns - Olympic HB86E Hot Box Kiln

Olympic HB86E Glass Kiln

Olympic's Hot Box 86E is designed to be light and easy to use.  The lid removes easily for easy top-loading access.   The solid top allows this kiln to achieve temperatures up to 2350°F.  Since the lid is removable, it allows extra sections to be optionally added.  Add a blank collar or bead collar (with a door) that will add 4.5" depth to your kiln (but does reduce the max temperature to 2000°F.

truck This Kiln can be delivered via UPS.  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.

Most of the Olympic Kilns we sell can come with either a 3-Key Controller or a 12-Key Controller

Model 3K
*3-key Controller (enter, up arrow, down arrow)
*4 user programs, 8 segments for ramp up/down and hold times
*Thermocouple Type K


 *12-key Controller
*6 user programs, 8 segments for ramp up/down and hold times
*Thermocouple Type K

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.
