KILN LININGS

There are two basic types of kiln: intermittent and continuous. With an intermittent kiln, the wares are placed inside, then the kiln is heated up and allowed to cool after the appropriate period. Continuous kilns are more common in industrial applications are built in the form of a tunnel where only the central section is heated and the wares move through on a trolley. An alternative arrangement is to have the heating on a moveable track to pass over the wares. Either of these is more energy efficient than repeatedly heating and cooling the same area but is not practical for the hobby enthusiast or small scale operation. The purpose of a kiln lining is to prevent the kiln walls overheating and energy being wasted. This can be achieved using dense bricks and mortar, insulation bricks and mortar, refractory castable or with ceramic fibre usually in the form of modules. Low thermal mass materials have the advantage of higher turnaround as the kiln will heat up and cool down quickly whereas higher thermal mass materials are more rugged and wear resistant.
