KK-12 (Kwik Kiln® 12")
Our largest propane fired furnace can smelt ore
concentrates, fire assay, melt pure metals, old jewelry... it can do it all, in
larger quantities. You will be surprised at how quiet it is, too.
We offer the only sectional kiln that allows for easy
removal of the crucible before pouring. The liner of the kiln is constructed in
a layered and stacked configuration that is less susceptible to cracking from
thermal expansion and contraction, as each layer can expand or contract
separately. Another feature of the layered and modular design is that
individual sections of the kiln liner can be replaced at a fraction of the cost
of replacing the whole liner, in the event of a serious spill or boil over of
The KK-12, as with all of our Kwik Kilns®, is constructed of
a stainless steel tension adjustable jacket, surrounding alumina silicate
refractory insulation that comprises the interior of the kiln. The refractory
insulation has an operating temperature rating of 2300° F.
Included in your deluxe kit will be a custom USA built
precision machined bi-metal brass tipped propane burner, 6' Hose with 60psi
regulator, gauge and needle valve.
