The V8 was designed, in-part, to operate as a glass vitrigraph kiln.
The modular, stacking design of the V8 allows for easy placement on vitrigraph frame structures. Simply move and stack the individual components to create the working vitrigraph kiln.
Quiet Drive Solid State Relay Option
The V8 is 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.
Vitrigraph Pots up to 7.5" Diameter
Usable floor space is always good and the V8 offers the most of usable floor space of kilns this size. This extra usable floor space is made possible by positioning the thermocouple (temperature sensor) at the corner of the chamber as opposed to the flat side.
Vitrigraph pots up to 7.5" diameter can be used. This means more volume per session without the constant re-load and wait.
With the V8 project size becomes less of an issue compared to competing brands. Larger glass, vitrigraph pots, glass molds or ceramic items can be loaded and fired.
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 V8 is 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
The V8 incorporates 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.
The V8 is designed in a "stackable" format. This allows the artist to convert from a standard kiln to a vitrigraph kiln in a matter of minutes.
Stackable also makes locating the kiln that much easier as each piece is positioned independently. If you plan to convert back and forth between standard use and vitrigraph or are a travelling artist the stackable feature comes in very handy.
The V8 multi-purpose kiln is sized perfectly for home studios, teachers, instructors and test kiln use. It's capable of all firing types and techniques including glass, vitrigraph, ceramic, metal clays and more.
The V8 is equipped with either our TAP, Rampmaster, Set-Pro or Genesis controls that contain preset programs for glass, ceramic and metal clay work. These controls also allow the user to custom design their own firing program for full artistic control.
