The digital Xpress J-14-1 is popular for heating jewelry molds. The kiln is made of ceramic fiber for fast heating and cooling. The digital controller yields consistent quality jewelry molds. It is a real time-saver. Set the controller and spend your time working on jewelry instead of monitoring the kiln. The Xpress J-14-1 operates on 120 volts. Maximum temperature is 1700° F.
The firing chamber is a one-piece ceramic fiber shell with embedded elements. For greater thermal efficiency, the space between the steel case and the ceramic fiber shell is filled with extra ceramic fiber insulation.
The Xpress J-14 comes with a vent hole and steel cover in the top and door. The door seals tightly with a heavy spring latch. The controls, located in the base, stay cool for long life. No extra stand is needed.
The Xpress J-14-1 is available with an optional wax tray for lost wax casting.
The Sentry Xpress 3-key controller is packed with features. It includes two modes: Single Speed and 8-segment Ramp-Hold.
