Therser UK the UK's number one Kiln and heat treatment company have recently completed the construction and installation of an Electric Heated Shuttle kiln with Kiln car and in-line tracking a normal capacity of 1.5 m³ Nominal Size for firing to 1250°C (maximum rating 1,300°C).


The kiln has a pre-fabricated kiln frame complete with integral rear mounted element connection chamber. The kiln structure is of a twin design, meaning lower heat losses and a comfortable working environment. Externally the kiln is clad with coloured powder-coated steel plates and stainless steel cladding on the afterburner and the front face of the kiln, which create a natural cooling cavity between the inner and outer skins which will give an excellent “visual finish”.

The kiln also has:

  • A vertical operated door by a motorised cross shaft complete with chain sprockets and guide wheels on adjustable back plates on the four corners of the door, running inside the vertical support channel.
  • Free standing PLC control panel.
  • Car haulage moving system operated by a rack on the kiln car with a motorised spur gear driven by a floor mounted drive motor with a Hand held push button control 
  • Low thermal mass ceramic fibre lining with brick piers for element support trays.
  • Roof mounted motorised automatic exhaust/cooling damper system.
