Studio Pro 17
The Studio Pro 17 is our largest, and best selling personal design. Artists prefer its large 17" x 17" chamber while still operating on 120V.
The Studio Pro 17 is constructed of both fiber and firebrick. A fiber lid is used to help speed up the process and gain temperature with ease. The firebrick walls and floor offer excellent heat-storage and annealing properties.
This thoughtful design combines the best of both worlds to create the finest personal sized glass kiln available.
The defining feature of the Studio Pro design is its front access. Simply lift the chamber to expose the entire floor. It's wall-free and wide open.
Front access is perfect for glass placement: simply build directly on your shelf and close the chamber. Front access is also great when using tools that require a horizontal approach such as raking, roll ups and manipulation techniques.
The Studio Pro 17 features top access as part of the dual access design.
Top access is excellent for the loading of shelves and forms as it allows for easy and precise placement. Top access is also preferred for many vertical-approach manipulation techniques such as embossing.
Fiber & Firebrick Design
The Studio Pro 17 is constructed of both fiber and firebrick.
Fiber is used in the lid to speed up the firing process to avoid devitrification and provide for a lighter weight lid.
Firebrick is used in both the walls and floor and provides excellent heat-storage properties which helps smooth out temperature swings and is awesome for annealing. By its nature, firebrick cleans up the temperature fluctuations that "all-fiber" kilns experience. You want a portion of firebrick in your glass kiln and the Studio Pro 17 delivers.
Swing View Equipped
Studio Pro 17 temperature controls are fitted to our Swing View Adjustable Enclosure.
The swing view is a pivoting, swing-up enclosure that allows you to rotate the control to a comfortable viewing and programming angle. Once you're done, lay it back down to see it from across your studio. It's that simple.
The swing view pairs well with touchscreen controls like the TAP II, Icon+ and Icon as viewing angle can be perfectly aligned. You'll love it.
Relay Access Port
The Studio Pro 17 incorporates our Relay Access Port for simple, no-panel-off relay replacement.
Simply remove the access plate to gain access to the mechanical 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.
The Studio Pro 17 is designed to be placed directly on your counter or bench-top or within the included floor stand (see below), the choice is yours.
Bench-top operation positions the kiln at waist level for very comfortable front access use.
Please note that counters and bench tops must be constructed of non-combustible material and be capable of supporting the load of the kiln.
Elemented Fiber Lid
Evenheat's fiber lid construction offers a faster heat-up than traditional 120V firebrick designs, about 50% faster. This faster firing potential reduces or completely eliminates devitrification.
The lid of the Studio Pro 17 is constructed of a special fiber material that provides excellent thermal properties along with light weight. This design allows the heating elements to be positioned on the surface for maximum heat transfer and firing efficiency.
We also position these lid heating elements left to right to prevent them from sagging or bunching-up with repeated opening and closing. It's a small but important detail that guarantees performance and satisfaction over the life of the kiln.
Floor Stand included
The Studio Pro 17 is supplied with a 16" stand for optional floor placement if desired.
Power Interrupt Switch Equipped
The Studio Pro 17 is standard equipped with a power interrupt switch which removes electrical power from all heating elements if either the lid or chamber is opened.
This is important for those who may access the kiln during firing such as glass manipulation and roll-ups.
Multiple Control Options
The Studio Pro 17 is available in a variety of controls including the Icon, Icon+, Tap II and Rampmaster 3.
At Evenheat we take the best control platforms on the market and make them even better by adding Special Limits thermocouples for precise temperature sensing and non-metallic faceplates for stellar Wi-Fi reception for on-line Apps. Visit our Controls tab to learn more about our controls and why they represent the very best that you can get.
Quiet Drive Solid State Relay Option
Studio Pro 17 models are available with our Quiet Drive Solid State Relay option.
Our Quiet Drive Solid State Relay System offers tight temperature control, high reliability and increased heating element life. The Quiet Drive is arguably the best designed and best performing solid state system on the market.
Our default production for Studio Pro 17 is 120V, Single Phase.
We do offer to build in 200V, 208V, 220V, 230V and 240V by request.
All controls available on the Studio Pro 17 will operate properly on both 50Hz and 60Hz line frequencies. To say it another way, line frequency has no effect. It doesn't matter.
Evenheat recommends that you check your operating voltage before ordering or placing the kiln in service.
Voltage Phase Options
Studio Pro17 models are produced in a single phase design only.
3 phase Delta and Y (380V, 400V and 415V) designs are not available.

Studio Pro 17 Shelf
Shelf - 16" x 16"
We offer shelf posts ranging from 1/2" to 6". In general you will always want to post up your firing shelf. We recommend using at least a 1/2" post.
Our Brushes are a wide and very soft brush used to apply shelf primer.
Shelf Primer - 24oz. (Dry)
Shelf primer creates a layer of protection between the kiln shelf and your glass as it prevents your glass from sticking to the shelf. It is generally applied using a soft brush like our Haik brush. It can also be airbrushed on with the proper equipment.
Our shelf primer of choice is a Hotline product called Hi-Fire. It's supplied in dry form and is mixed with water for application onto the kiln shelves.
