A new white paper, “Kiln Ventilation Facts and Figures,” reportedly shows that a canopy hood kiln ventilation system is effective at removing excess heat escaping from kilnss. Kilns are ventilated to remove hazardous fumes and noxious odors produced during the firing process. Excess heat escapes from the kiln through peepholes and worn seals. With a canopy hood system, room temperature measured 72°F (22°C) 10 ft away from the kiln at 5 ft above the floor and 76°F (24°C) directly above the kiln at the ceiling (8 ft high).
