Receiving Your Kiln

Olympic Kilns packs its merchandise so that it will arrive at its destination undamaged. Olympic orders are FOB origin when they leave our loading dock. This means we hold the carrier's receipt that your order left in good condition. We do not allow any deductions from invoices for damaged ware. It is the receiver's responsibility to understand and comply with standard shipping and receiving practices as described in this section. The carrier is responsible for transporting your freight but not for unloading it. A lift gate is required if you do not have a loading dock for shipments delivered by freight carrier. 

Location Guidelines for Your Olympic Electric Kiln

1. Adequate space - at least 12 inches of space between the kiln and the wall. (However, for operator comfort, allow room to walk around the kiln if maintenance is required. Stackable kilns require tightening of the kiln rings while firing for proper alignment.) 

2. All flammable materials such as curtains, plastics, etc. in the area of the kiln should be removed. Determine room size required from the outer dimensions of the kiln you wish to purchase. For commercial kilns, check door width, and if the door is insufficient to allow kiln entry, contact Olympic Kilns to check if modifications can be made to kiln before it is ordered and built. 

3. Proper ventilation - Heat can accumulate in restricted areas above both gas and electric kilns if a hood is not used. If the kiln is gas and located in a confined area it is essential that an exhaust hood be place above the kiln and vented to the outside. This ensures removal of heat and exhaust gases, including carbon monoxide. Even if the kiln is outside be sure that the hot exhaust gases do not cause damage. Check all local requirements or codes before installation. 

4. If the kiln is to be placed outside, ensure that moisture is not permitted. Use a roof over the kiln or some type water resistant tarp when the kiln is not being fired. 

5. Remember to use sheet metal or non-flammable material to shim the legs when leveling the kiln.

Installation of Your Electric Kiln

Position the kiln with the observation holes clearly visible and with the electronic controller within easy reach. For kilns equipped with a power cord, place the kiln to the left of the proper electrical outlet so that the kiln can be plugged in without touching the metal jacket. Because all kilns generate heat the stand or frame should be placed on a concrete floor. Tiles or linoleum could be damaged without this precaution. 

If the kiln is to be placed outside, ensure that moisture is not permitted. Use a roof over the kiln or some type water resistant tarp when the kiln is not being fired. Remember to use sheet metal or non-flammable material to shim the legs when leveling the kiln. 

Electrical Hook-Up

To provide the performance it was designed to give, your new kiln must have the proper outlet and breaker to supply adequate voltage and amperage. An incorrect connection may cause disappointing or even hazardous results. A qualified electrician needs to be consulted to determine whether your wiring is adequate. 

Electric kilns running on 120 volts will plug into a standard outlet but check your breaker to ensure proper performance. Standard electric kilns will run on 240 volts, single phase. If your kiln was ordered 208 volts, single or three-phase power, it will be noted on the nameplate on the kiln. Commercial electric kilns may be wired for 240, 208, 380, or 480 volts; single or three phase. Most commercial kilns require direct wiring and a receptacle outlet is not required. 

Any kiln ordered three-phase will need to be direct wired (there is not a power cord attached to the kiln).
