Bailey has designed a resilient energy efficient kiln specifically for soda. We have also incorporated our effective fume removal system to extract fumes during the process. Soda firing has that beautiful result that is so unique and can't be imitated!
High Alumina Insulation
The insulative lining is a combination of a special type of high alumina insulating fire brick and high alumina hard brick.This special high alumina IFB provides resilience to soda attack as well as providing economical energy-saving firing costs. By comparison, traditional hard brick soda kilns are very wasteful of energy with firing costs over 5 times as much!
Areas of the floor in the firebox tend to see more deterioration. Bailey uses a top layer of dense high alumina hard brick backed by insulating brick. Bailey has also designed this floor brick so it can be pulled out and replaced without effecting or dismantling the side walls. The side walls and door can also have bricks removed and replaced conveniently.Stacking Area
Our 18C and 20C use two 14 x 28 kiln shelves for the stackable area. The interior space around these shelves includes extra circulation space at the front and rear to promote excellent penetration of the soda into the load. Custom sizes of soda kilns are available on request.
