Studio Pro Features
One of the defining features of the Studio Pro design is its Front Access. Simply lift the chamber away to expose the entire floor.
Front access is perfect for glass placement, particularly with glass that can't be disturbed once placed. Simply build on your shelf and close the chamber. Front access is also great when using manipulation tools that require a horizontal approach such as raking or glass roll ups.
All Studio Pro models also have top access as part of our Dual Access design!
Top access is excellent for venting. Top access also works very well when loading forms and comes in very handy when using manipulation tools that require a vertical approach such as glass embossing.
With front access, the Studio Pro kilns offer the artist a wall-free work surface.
The wall-free design provides wide open space for the precision placement of your glass. There's nothing to fight or work around. It's an incredible design feature that further defines the Studio Pro Series.
Quiet Drive Solid State Relay Option
Studio Pro 14 and Studio Pro 17 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.
Swing View Control Enclosure
All temperature controls, except for the Set-Pro, are fitted into 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 the shop. It's that simple.
The swing view pairs well with TAP touchscreen control as viewing angle can be perfectly aligned. You'll love it.
Relay Access Port
All Studio Pro models incorporate our Relay Access Port for simple, no-panel-off relay replacement.
Simply remove the access plate to gain access to the relay(s). 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.
Bench Top Operation
The Studio Pro personal kilns are designed to be placed directly on your counter or bench top or within the included floor stand (Studio Pro 14 and Studio Pro 17). 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.
Studio Pro 17 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.
