Heated Drying Cabinets

Bailey HDC-625 Heated Drying Cabinet with Digital Temperature Control 72" wide x 24" deep x 5' high. Custom sizes are available.


The Bailey Heated Drying Cabinet accelerates the drying time for pottery pieces so students can be more productive with limited classroom time. Drying cabinets help to insure that work is properly dried before bisquing. The cabinets are thermostatically controlled to provide a temperature range between 111F and 116F to safely accelerate drying. This is suitable for greenware as well as plaster molds.

The digital controller has a preset temperature set point of 112F, with a deviation temperature range from 111F to 116F. The digital controller provides precise temperature control and a digital readout showing both the set point temperature (in a green LED display), and the actual temperature reading above it (in a red LED display). The upper side walls of the cabinet have outtake ventilation grills. This promotes an efficient updraft current from the heat source at the base of the cabinet while releasing moisture. Two heating elements are placed at the bottom of the cabinet, one at the back wall and one forward to provide optimal uniformity of the "updraft" effect so pieces will dry evenly. The heating elements extend the total width of the cabinet and a protective grill prevents fingers from touching the elements. The placement of the thermocouple in relation to the heating elements at the base of the cabinet insures that the elements will never overheat the bottom shelf, even if the doors on the cabinet are accidently left open.

For safety, we have incorporated a hidden high limit set point of 130F that will trip the unit off completely should some condition cause the temperature to rise beyond the preprogrammed range. If the 130F safety set point is reached, the unit will lock off and stay off until it is manually reset. The digital controller is preset and tamper proof to prevent students from raising the temperature in the cabinet to a level that would be too hot to hold with bare hands.

Each cabinet comes with heavy duty shelves which have extra reinforcement girders in the center area to provide maximum stability. Shelves can be easily repositioned at various heights. We provide mounting intervals of every 2.5" for the rungs that support the shelves. Additional shelves and rungs can be purchased separately.

Bailey Drying Cabinets are certified for the US and Canada. We are the only company manufacturing a certified drying cabinet for ceramics in the US or Canada.


Thermostatically precision-controlled temperature with master on/off and re-set button.

14 gauge Type K thermocouple for lifetime trouble free operation.

Protective expanded sheet metal to prevent contact with heating element.

Vented top sides release moisture while promoting updraft circulation and even heat distribution.

Optional Swivel casters with brakes can be ordered to offer mobility and convenient placement.

You have great flexibilty in placement of the shelving. Intervals for shelf rungs are located every 2.5" for optimal use of space.

Shelves are industrical quality, powder coated with a clear finish, and have two center girder supports to prevent any flexing.

Magnetic door stops provide a strong hold with smooth opening action. No catches are necessary. The white vinyl resting pad prevents scratches to the paint by the magnets.
