In Topic: Kiln Not Firing To Temperature?

That makes sense. I will try adding some external rockwool insulation, it looks like I'm loosing about 400w  through the outside at 2000f.

Cool! I just ordered new elements.I just got a bunch of Cone5/6 glazes, is the main reason to not go to Cone6 is that it will be difficult due to being underpowered? I assume all the same series of kilns have the same bricks and it has 3" insulation. I noticed the smaller models have the same power rating. Here is my temperature profile (I slowed it down a lot due to trouble following a faster one as early as 1700 degrees):

I would be suprised if thermocouple isn't working correctly, they are very simple devices and I'm using a digital reading chip. The cone5 cone didn't bend fully. Only 1V is dropped over the SSR. Once I swap out the elements and confirm it is working; I will speed up the higher end area of the profile.
