The Skutt Dual Intake Kit allows you to vent 1 or 2 kilns over 12 cubic feet using one Envirovent 2 Kiln Ventilation System.
Dual Intake Kit Includes:
- Additional spring loaded plenum cup assembly
- 4 - hose clamps
- 1 - 3" Y Duct Connector
- 2 - 8ft x 3" flexible aluminum duct sections
Here's How It Works:
A designated number of holes are drilled in the lid and floor of the kiln either in the factory or on location. A spring loaded plenum cup (see diagram) is placed under the kiln and tensioned between the floor of the kiln and the floor under the kiln. The holes in the floor of the kiln are drilled in a tight pattern so the plenum cup can cover them all. The other end of the cup is connected by 3" ducting to a fan which is generally mounted on the wall.
On the opposite end of the fan the air is ducted through the wall to the outside air. The plenum cup has 3 additional holes from which it draws room temperature air to mix with the heated air from the kiln. This serves two purposes. Since the kiln air is mixed with cooler room air the air coming out of the end of the vent is never hotter than an average hair dryer. Secondly, the holes in the plenum cup are sized to reduce the vacuum on the kiln chamber so only a small amount of air is moving through the kiln. This ensures the firing time is not affected and the ware is not at risk.
