28″ Raku & Torchbearer kilns – 40″ x 40″ stainless steel vent hood-
Gas kilns require proper ventilation when firing, especially if the kiln is going to be fired indoors.  Olympic builds stainless and galvanized steel gas vent hoods for the updraft and downdraft gas kilns. The vents are square in design and have a 10″ diameter at the top for a non-flammable double-walled exhaust pipe to extend out or to go through the wall or ceiling to the outside.  Vent hoods need to be mounted approximately 36″ above the top porthole of updraft gas kilns or enough room to be able to raise the lid on Torchbearer gas kilns. Kiln Vents are crated separately from kiln shipments and have an estimated shipping weight of 200 lbs.
