Kilns & Accessories - Orton Replacement Parts for Kiln Sitters

Sitter Tube Assemblies
(All Tube Assemblies include the Cone Supports, Sensing Rod & Firing Gauge)

Orton Ceramics is now offering Tube Assemblies and other replacement parts to fit existing Dawson Kiln Sitters. Originally there were 2 distinct styles of Tube Assembies: either with a bracket or without. Orton has chosen to produce only tube assemblies with brackets (Type A or Type C ) as shown below. The short Bracket on the Type A tube measures approx. 1 while the Long Bracket of the Type C tube measures approx. 2. The size of the Bracket corresponds to the distance between the Face Plate and Back Plate of the Kiln Sitter see diagram below. Please read through all of the following information to determine how to order the correct replacement tube for your Sitter. If you have any questions please contact our Sales Staff at (800) 431-6067.

If your current Sitter Tube Assembly is a Type B as pictured below, Orton will no longer supply this style. All tube

mounting bracket as shown on the
Type A and Type C examples above.

Type B

To determine the correct Type A or Type C tube to replace an existing Type B tube you must:

1) Measure the distance between the Face plate and Back plate of your Kiln Sitter. Refer to Diagram A at the top of the page.

2) Measure "X" on your tube as shown above.

3) If the measurement from Step 1 is approx 1 you must order a Type A tube. Add 1 to X: this is your Order Length. Find the Order Length in the top half of the Chart to the right and order the corresponding Item No. For example, if "X" measures 6, your order size will be 7 (6+1) and you will order a C-172-S7.

4) If the measurement from Step 1 is approx 2 you must order a Type C tube. Add 2 to X: this is your Order Length. Find the Order Length in the bottom half of the Chart to the right and order the corresponding Item No. For example, if "X" measures 7, your order size will be 9 (7+2) and you will order a C-172-L9.

 Replacement
Back Plate

N/C  

( * ) Please note: when replacing your Type B Tube Assembly with a Type A or C for the first time, you will need a new Back Plate for your Kiln Sitter. A Type B Tube Assembly is attached by a large nut to the Back Plate of the Kiln Sitter. There is a hole in the Back Plate where the tube is attached. The Type A & C Tubes are attached by a bracket to the Front Plate of the sitter and the Tube must pass through the hole in the Back Plate. Unfortunately, the diameter of the ceramic tube is larger than the existing hole in Back Plate; therefore, it is necessary to replace the Back Plate. Orton will provide new Back Plates at no charge along with instructions for the proper installation. Please order a Back Plate (Item No. C-172-BP) if you are replacing a Type B tube assembly for the first time. Once you have made the change over, order future replacements from the Chart at the top of this page.
