Access Port (Pat. Pend.)
Access Port (Pat. Pend.)

The V8 incorporates Evenheat's new relay access port (Pat. Pend.) for simple, no-panel-off relay replacement.

Simply remove the plate to gain access to the service part. There's no need to remove or swing the entire control panel out of the way and dig into the internal wiring. It's absolutely simple and effective and all it takes is a simple screwdriver!

Multi-Purpose Design
Multi-Purpose Design

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 Set-Pro, Rampmaster II, RM3 or TAP Touchscreen 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.

Vitrigraph Capable Design
Vitrigraph Capable Design

The V8 was designed, in-part, to operate as a glass vitrigraph kiln with the use of our optional Vitrigraph Base Accessory.

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.

Evenheat has also positioned the thermocouple (temperature sensor) to the corner of the firing chamber which allows for more usable floor space and potentially larger pots (up to 7.25").

Power is not an issue as the V8 produces 1680W on a standard household plug. It's very capable.

Vitrigraph Base Accessory
Vitrigraph Base Accessory

Converting your V8 to vitrigraph use is possible using our Vitrigraph Base Accessory.

The Vitrigraph Base Accessory is a standard V8 base that has an additional 2-3/4" hole machined through the brick and metal stand. This large hole allows for unimpeded glass flow.

More Usable Floor Space
More Usable Floor Space

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.

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
Multiple Control Options

Evenheat works closely with control manufacturers Bartlett Instruments and SDS Industries to bring you the best in performance, features and programming ease.

Control Options Include:

TAP Touchscreen, full featured touchscreen control with user-defined and preset programs for glass, metal clay and ceramic. Also features full-text graphics, cost per firing, and graphing along with wi-fi compatibility with web and mobile apps and more.

Genesis Touchscreen, full featured touchscreen control with user-defined and preset programs.

Rampmaster 3 (RM3), full featured control with user-defined and preset programs for glass. Features a 4 digit display.

Economical Set-Pro, 3 button control with user-defined and preset programs for glass, metal clay and ceramic. Features a 4 digit display.

Stackable Design
Stackable Design

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.

Power Cable Exits at Rear
Power Cable Exits at Rear

We've placed the power cable exit point to the back of the kiln to keep it out of the way of both you and the kiln itself. It's a fairly minor detail but placing it at this point lessons the potential for entanglement and power cable damage.

Standard Household Plug
Standard Household Plug

The V8 operates using standard, North American household voltage and is equipped with a standard North American household plug. We do offer the V8 in various global designs and fit these units with country specific cables and plugs.
