Kanthal Super heating elements, manufactured by Kanthal AB, are being
used in three electric, fiber insulated kilns supplied to leading
Austrian ceramic giftware and tableware producer Gmundener Keramik.
Designed and built by furnace builder Prins Ovenbau BV, Holland, the
kilns are used to decorate porcelain with enamel at operating
temperatures of 1015C. The total installed power in each kiln is 450
kW, generated by six rows of eight Kanthal Super elements, each 1250
mm long and rated at 9.375 Kw. The eight elements in each row are
connected in series to line voltage without transformers and
regulated by phase angle thyristors. The elements are made from
molybdenum disilicide and a component that forms a dense protective
layer of glass at the working temperature.
