Thick, 3" Firebrick Construction
The KO's are constructed of a thicker, 3" firebrick (the standard is 2-1/2"). This added thickness provides more insulation for a faster heat up and higher temperature potential.
We use Thermal Ceramics insulating firebrick exclusively in all our products. This firebrick is made exclusively in Augusta Georgia, USA out of some very special Georgia ground. It's by far the best available.
High Temperature Heating Elements
The KO Series feature a special high temperature element wire normally reserved for high temperature, ceramic applications. This special alloy plays nice at temperature and allows us to reach a maximum of 2400°F (1316°C).
We use Sandvik heating element wire for all of our products. It winds nicely, it stretches evenly and it tends to last. It's just good stuff.
Quiet Drive Solid State Relay Option
All KO models are available with our optional Quiet Drive Solid State Relay.
It's the job of the relay to turn the heating elements On and Off. A solid state relay can do so up to 120 times per second which allows for incredible temperature control. It also does so without the given, eventual failure of a mechanical relay. We fully expect our solid state relay to last the life of the unit.
We have more to tell you about our solid state relay, our design choices and why you should choose the solid state option. Just click below.
Side Opening Door
Heat treating requires the removing of some very hot material from the chamber in order to quench. Everything in the chamber is hot, which includes the door. The doors on the KO's swing out and to the side, a full 180° if you need it. This puts the super-heated door well away from you as you concentrate on the work at hand.
The side opening door is an excellent design choice and makes all the difference.
Multiple Control Options
Evenheat works closely with control manufacturers SDS Industries and Bartlett Instruments to bring you the best in performance, features and programming ease.
The KO Series models are available with the very popular TAP touchscreen control by SDS Industries as well as the Rampmaster 3 and Set-Pro by Bartlett Instrument.

Relay Access Port
All KO models incorporate our Relay Access Port for simple, no-panel-off relay replacement.
Simply remove the access plate to gain access to the relay. There's no need to remove the control panel and dig into the internal wiring. It's absolutely simple and effective and all it takes is a screwdriver!
It's a given that mechanical relays will fail at some point. This relay access port really comes in handy when they do.
