WHAT IS THE ENVIROLINK?
The EnviroLink is an electrical switching device that can be controlled by a Skutt automatic kiln. It can be used to turn your kiln vent on and off.
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM AN ENVIROLINK?
- Even though most vents do not draw a lot of energy, most teachers do not feel comfortable letting the fan motor run all weekend or even overnight. The EnviroLink will shut the vent off when the program is complete or when the kiln reaches a specific temperature. Since it works with ConeFire Mode, it is very easy to program.
- Crystal Glazes and Cone 6 Glazes can be very sensitive to cooling rates. Artists can now use the Ramp/Hold programming mode to control whether the kiln vent is on for each segment of the Ô¨Åring program.
- Glass Artist
- Artists who Ô¨Åre glass want to cool quick and hold steady. With the EnviroLink they can program the vent to come on when crash cooling, and then turn off during annealing (when they are trying to hold the temperature steady).
WHAT KILNS WILL IT WORK ON?
The EnviroLink will work on any Skutt KilnMaster or GlassMaster Kiln which was manufactured after January of 2001. If you are not sure how old your kiln is, write down your serial number along with the model number, voltage and phase and call Skutt. The EnviroLink will also work with many competitive brands of kiln (many using Bartlett controllers). Call your particular kiln manufacturer to find out.
WHAT OTHER VENTS WILL IT CONTROL?
It will control the EnviroVent, the EnviroVent 2 or most any other vent or device that draws less than 12 amps on a 120 volt circuit. Consult with your Vent manufacturer to be sure.
