Skutt GM818 & GMT818 Glass Kiln

The GM818 is a side fired kiln. With a side fired kiln you need to fire a little slower but you more then make up the time with the amount of work you can get in the kiln.Great for annealing blown glass vessels too!

Chamber Capacity - Approximately 18 in. x 18 in. opening and 18 in. high: 2.6 cubic feet.

KilnMaster Controller

Sophisticated, Yet Easy to Use

  • GlassFire Mode allows you to write a program simply by choosing your technique and the speed. It’s that easy!
  • Write your own firing programs with up to 8 Segments usingRamp and Hold. Now you can store up to 12 programs.
  • Built in Diagnostics give you or our technicians the ability to diagnose kiln problems with just a few button presses.
  • The Alarm feature allows you to set a temperature alarm that will notify you when the kiln is at peak temperature.
  • Adjust temperatures or hold times while the kiln is firing using Add Time or Add Temp or simply press Anneal Now to set your project and begin annealing it.
  • Use the Delay Start feature to fire the kiln when it is convenient for you to be there when the kiln reaches temperature.
  • …and so much more. Click Here to see the whole story.



Current Sensing Technology

Skutt is one of the few brands that installs aCurrent Sensor in every KilnMaster Kiln. This allows you to read the Amperage of each section of the kiln as well as the Voltage andVoltage Under Load.

Now with the touch of a few buttons you can give those readings over the phone to your kiln repair technician so they can troubleshoot the problem and make sure they have the correct parts when they come out for the repair. ThisSaves Time and Money.

Prior to the use of these current sensors someone would have to come to your house and test the amperage and voltage inside the control box with live wires exposed. This system is Much Safer.


Sectional Design

Sectional Design is a good idea on so many levels. 


Imagine trying to move a kiln into the basement or through a narrow door without being able to break it down into sections.

No more standing on your head in the kiln to replace those bottom elements or removing every brick in the kiln to get to the one you want to replace. Just remove the control box, unhook the buckles and place the section you want to work on on a table.

We hope nothing really bad happens to your kiln … but … if it does, isn’t nice to know you can replace one bad section instead of the whole kiln?


Balanced Elements

A large amount of the heat you lose in your kiln passes to through the lid and slab of your kiln. To compensate for this, Skutt directs more heat to these areas when they design the elements. The fact that we have twice the element grooves in our kilns gives us more design flexibility than some of our competitors. 

It also gives you more loading options since it is always recommended to have at least one element radiating between each layer of shelves. Oh and by the way, twice the grooves means you get twice the amount of element wire, which means each element doesn’t have to work as hard, which means longer element life! Whew!


Zone Control

  • Thermocouple in each section of the kiln allows controller to control each section separately to even out temperature variations top to bottom.
  • Critical when fusing on multiple shelves and annealing large blown vessels.
  • Works in conjunction with balanced elements to ensure firing efficiency.


The Thermocouple

  • Thin-walled inconel cover equals faster reaction time and higher accuracy.
  • Easy and quick to replace.
  • GM818, GM1018. and GM1227 all come with Zone Control. Since these kilns are designed to fire on multiple levels we place a thermocouple in each section to keep the temperature uniform from top to bottom.


The Lid Lifter

  • Your GM1018 may be ordered with an optional Lid Lifter
  • Lift your lid with very little effort.
  • All stainless construction.
  • Easy and safe to tension.


The Warranty

  • Unlike most warranties, ours covers Parts AND Labor.
  • Never Pro-Rated.
  • Serviced by the most extensive, knowledgeable and talented distributor network in the industry.
  • Backed by a company whose mission statement is “We help you make great things”. When your kiln is down, you can’t make great things.


And So Much More!

When you are buying a kiln, you are not just buying the equipment, you are also buying the service that comes before and after the sale. From the moment we cut that first brick to the day you open the box, to the day you are ready to retire it, our reputation is on the line and we take that very seriously. Get the whole story here.
