Upgrading An Electric Kiln

Recommended Posts

I would like to start using a mid-range stoneware rather than a low-fire earthenware. However, the max temp on my kiln is 2000 F. I tried firing it higher to see how high it would go, and it only got to 2011. I would like to know if it's possible to change anything (the elements, etc.) to make the kiln able to fire to a higher temperature. We don't have the budget to buy a new kiln, but could afford some changes. We are using an Amaco Excel Select Fire. Thanks for any suggestions!

Contact Amaco for the specs on your kiln and advice to convert your kiln. Be concerned about the maximum temperature it's firebricks are rated for. Sight unseen most likely the brick won't take the higher temperatures you want to reach.
