Pyrometric Cones Or Bars?

Recommended Posts

I don't use a kiln sitter but from what I remember that others have said on here bars sit more evenly in the sitter where its easier to place a cone slightly off center which will affect how it works.

In addition to the uniform physical dimensions of the bar vs. the variable thickness of the cone, the bars are designed to run a little hotter than the same number cone, to account for the additional heatwork flowing up and down the side edges of the kiln vs. in the middle of a shelf. The possible downside is that many walk-in supply shops do not carry the bars, only the mini-cones. If yours is one of the few that does carry them, you are in luck; otherwise you will need to order them from one of the usual online suspects.
