Kiln designed for laboratory tests of materials and glazes up to 1220°C

The various exclusive design solutions allow to reproduce in the laboratory tests the same conditions of operation of standard production kiln:

  • the equipment with gas burners and insulation with bricks creates within the chamber of the kiln the same atmosphere which is located in a common production kiln with burners.
  • the subdivision of the areas of the kiln: preheating, firing, cooling and rapid final cooling are the same as a common production roller kiln.
  • the self-regulated areas, one in preheating zone, two in firing zone and one in rapid cooling zone allow to reproduce the firing curves accurately.
  • the solutions adopted for the chimney flue and the aspiration of the hot air in the cooling zone allow to have these aspirations adjustable according to the firing curve
  • the roller pitch of 48,84mm allows to fire small sizes
  • power and control board are separated, with SMARTLAB supervising system
  • LAB42 according to UNI EN 746-1 and UNI EN 746-2 and the GOST regulations
