Introduction to BAILEY GAS
- Complete Venting
- Complete Firing
- Dramatic Fuel
- Beautiful Firing
A kiln is one of the most important
investments you can make. If you are a potter, your livelihood depends
on the performance of your kiln. If your are purchasing for a school, your
students creativity depends on it. Unlike electric kilns. a gas kiln will
not fire itself automatically. Learning to fire a gas kiln with even
reductions and temperature depends on the design of the kiln. the
technical support from the manufacturer, and the operator.
When you buy a kiln from Bailey, you are
actually getting two invaluable products: the innovation and
unparalleled performance of a Bailey gas kiln, and fast informative
technical support from the expert Bailey Kiln Staff. Our Technical
experts will cover every aspect of installation and operation of the kiln.
When you buy a Bailey, you can buy with complete confidence because of our
30 year history as the leader in innovative equipment design.
Any pottery that has suffered trying to
resolve a firing that won’t balance in heat, or won’t reduce properly,
or won’t build temperature knows the desperate feeling of realizing that
their pots might be ruined. That is an anxiety that no Bailey customer
ever experiences. Solutions are always one convenient call away.
We have the answers.
Compare us to our competition and
there is no other choice. There are “discount” catalogs that will say
absolutely anything to “sell” you a gas kiln. What good is a cheap
kiln when you are panicking on your kiln site without solutions. Then
there are kiln companies that are owned and operated by business people
that have never run and operated a pottery. They don’t have the
expertise to help.
We know our kilns inside out. Our
designs grew out of an intrinsic knowledge of the firing process. The
placement of every brick, the area of every burner port, the flu sizing,
the combustion controls, all have been finely tuned with Bailey logic. When
you talk with the Bailey experts, you are not only talking to experienced
potters, you are talking to a company that is famous for innovating other
processes like slab rolling, extruding and electric kilns.
Dramatic Fuel Savings
Bailey Kilns are built to deliver
maximum fuel savings. This saving is the direct result of superior insulation
in combination with our 360 degree heat flow pattern. As a result, our
kilns consume up to 66% fewer BTUs than competitive brands or home-made
kilns. Even if you only fire a kiln like our Studio 18/12 three times a
month over a period of one year, you can save approximately $600 in fuel
costs. Larger kilns will save substantially more.
Toll-Free Answer Line
When you buy a Bailey, you get fast toll-free phone assistance for any
questions concerning layout, installation, and firing questions. Even if
you have no prior experience firing gas, we can assure you that our
experienced technicians will have you firing confidently within several
firings. You also get a 52 page instruction booklet and, instructional
DVDs which are full of information covering all phases of installation,
firing schedules, troubleshooting, and theory.
