Bailey Studio Deluxe Kilns with direct vertical venting through the
roof deck from the residual and combustion hood. Each residual
hood also has a draft inducer (not shown in image).
Venting a Bailey Gas Kiln
When ordering a kiln, give us a call and we will determine what materials you will need for a safe hook-up. We also require that you send a diagram of your kiln room, indicating the relevant vertical dimensions at the point where the venting materials will exit the structure. Never attempt to hook up a kiln without the technical assistance of our staff. Using the wrong materials can have serious consequences.
Bailey kilns do not require a “continuous” chimney. Our kilns are designed to fire properly with the draft that is supplied by both the kiln’s short chimney and the forced draft burners. Heat escaping from the exit at the top of the kiln chimney is immediately mixed with cool ambient air in our combustion hood and then channeled into a variety of appropriately rated stainless steel venting materials.
The dilution style combustion hood (below) is an example of several styles employed for various models.
