Skutt Enviro-Vent II
Properly venting your kiln reduces your potential exposure to toxic fumes like carbon monoxide and sulfides. Be aware and be safe for happy firing!
Skutt's Enviro-Vent 2 allows you to vent your kiln with no vibrations transmitted back through the body of your kiln to your ware inside because the motor is now mounted away from the kiln. It mounts either on the floor (in a floor-mount bracket) or on the wall with the exit ducting. The redesigned plenum cup is spring-loaded to ensure contact at all times with the kiln base. This helps assure a leak-free seal for better venting and even fewer firing fumes in your kiln area.
Is the Vent Worth the Cost?
manufacturers have long recommended that firing areas have adequate
ventilation. Our current environmental and green consciousness has created
more awareness of potential health hazards than ever before. Studies
have shown that carbon monoxide emissions can exceed OSHA Threshold
Limit Values during bisque firings in electric kilns. Formaldehyde and
sulfur dioxide may also be present. Because of these concerns, kiln
venting is required by building codes in most areas.
