Vent-A-Kiln captures and removes unpleasant fumes, odors, and heat from kilns. It is a close-capture fume system designed for low cubic-feet per minute (CFM) and static pressure applications. Standard and custom models are available for use in schools and in other educational or commercial facilities by professionals and hobbyists alike.

Kiln Emissions Can Be Harmful

Electric kilns use large quantities of high-current electricity to generate enough heat to "fire" artwork properly. In some instances, internal temperatures can exceed 2200º F (1204°C).

 

During the firing process, the clay medium undergoes a metamorphosis. Several chemical reactions take place within clays and glazes, causing various organic and inorganic chemicals and minerals to expel toxic fumes at high temperatures.

 

Toxic and odorous fumes can exit the kiln and accumulate to create an unhealthy and unsafe working environment. Electric kilns also produce significant levels of heat, which can create unpleasantly warm conditions in the surrounding area.

Vent-A-Kiln - The First Solution 

In 1983, Vent-A-Kiln Corp. recognized these potentially hazardous problems and developed a solution by creating the world's first commercially manufactured ventilation system specifically for use with electric kilns.


Taking advantage of the natural tendency of heat to rise, Vent-A-Kiln exhausts fumes and heat away from the work area, allowing teachers, artisans, or others to create new work while ready pieces are firing.


The design incorporates a hood that is lowered close to the top of the kiln via an overhead pulley and counterweight system. The hood extends past the exterior dimension of the kiln to ensure effective coverage on top of and around the source of fumes.


A blower mounted on top of the hood creates a draw on top of the kiln where heated fumes are already traveling upward. The blower ensures that the fumes are collected and vented properly. The flexible hose carries the exhaust to an externally mounted louvered exit plate.


Remove Toxic Fumes, Heat & Odors from your Kiln for Less than 1¢ per Hour! 

Hoods positioned close to the kiln will only capture and vent fumes and heat as they exit. This method does not upset the balance of heat load within the kiln. No cold spots inside the kiln. No delayed heat-up times or reduction in firing capability. No kiln modification needed. Vent-A-Kiln Hoods hang 2" above kiln, never coming in contact with the kiln, therefore no motor vibrations will disturb your kiln. This model fits round kilns with a diameter of 24" to 28". 

Vent-A-Kiln is covered with a full 3-year warranty on all parts. All systems include a conical aluminum hood, 2 speed fan/motor (blower), overhead counter weight pulley system, 10 ft. of flexible duct, all necessary clamps and an externally mounted back draft louver with bird screen. 

No extra parts to purchase. Vent-A-Kiln System is light, portable and easy to install.
