I recently bought a large used electric kiln, inside dimensions approximately 30 x 40 inches. Where can I use it safely? I have a barn in which hay is stored. There is also a room inside the barn where it can be placed. The room however has a wooden floor. I am concerned about the safety of running the kiln in the proximity of hay. Thanks
I do not know the exact environment or condition your barn is in, but with a careful approach the kiln should do fine in the barn. An interior of electric kiln is a very well protected and keeps the red/orange/yellow heat in really well compared to a gas firing kiln.
I would recommend putting it in the smaller room inside the barn, keeping all hay 10 ft. or so away. Also make a cinder block pad 12-24" wider then the kiln and put the kiln on top of that.
Having said all that, before going out and doing this it would be good to get the opinion of any kiln manufacturing companies, on this, because it is a whole barn full of hay. You could ask this question here http://www.skutt.com/request.html as well, and please let us know what you find out.
