INDUSTRIAL-LINE HCB/HSQ model series bell kilns, up to 1,320°C

The KITTEC bell kilns in the HCB and HSQ model series have the major advantage of easy loading, not only in the ceramic and art area, but also the industrial area. The base plate is freely accessible, and the workpiece only has to be lifted a few centimetres. This ergonomic advantage makes working considerably easier.
Our bell kilns are particularly suitable for very heavy or very high workpieces such as sculptures or large glass or metal parts. The electric heating system of these kilns is in the bell. Once charging is complete, the kiln is closed by lowering the bell, and can then be heated. After firing or heat treatment, the bell is raised above the device and the workpieces can be removed in a simple and ergonomic way.
