Learn More About glass Melting and the Right Furnace

People often ask, "Can I melt glass in a ceramic kiln?" The answer to that question is yes, but ceramic kilns are usually much deeper, designed to hold larger items and stack multiple layers. It's like heating a sausage roll in a blast furnace. It will get the job done but it's over the top!

The first problem seen in glass melting furnaces is size. You will know the types of items you want to produce, so you need to be careful about the size of the internal combustion chamber. Smaller ovens, like the Paragon SC2, are perfect for smaller items like glass jewelry but are too small for larger items like glassware and decorative glassware.

The larger the oven, the more power it will need to run it. Larger ovens run on 30 liters or more of power, so you need a circuit breaker that must be installed by a qualified electrician in your fuse box. Then the line is fed to the oven position and the 'stove type' switch is equipped with oven tin that goes directly to the switch.

The next issue to consider when purchasing a glass oven is how the oven is located and where the heating element is located. This is very important because some ovens will allow you to work inside the oven when turned on, others will not, and this really depends on the position of the heating element in the oven.
