Vent-Sure Downdraft Kiln Vent System
The vent blower motor is mounted on the wall. This keeps the heat of the kiln away from the motor (for long motor life) and keeps the motor vibration away from the kiln (which can cause ware to move, damage to the kiln, and misfiring of cones on a Kiln Sitter - if you have one).
Vacuum is safer than pressure
The vent tubing is kept under vacuum instead of pressure. This insures that any leak in the tubing does not blow noxious fumes into your room.
External Venting is Better
External venting is safer and surer than venting to the inside of your kiln room (even with a filter).
The blower vents up to 130 CFM (cubic feet per minute). This will handle up to a 20 cubic foot kiln (and usually larger). More than one vent can be attached to a kiln.
Minimal Electrical Power Needed
The motor only pulls 1.37 amps.
Six Foot Power cord with On/Off Switch
The blower motor features a 6 foot long 120 volt 15 amp power cord. An On/Off switch is located on the cord.
Adjustable Vent Control
A vacuum bypass on the kiln bypass/collection box adjusts the amount of venting from the system. Don’t waste heat and energy by venting more than you need. Adjust vent to kiln size.
15 feet of flexible aluminum duct
15 feet of flexible expandable aluminum 3" diameter duct is included along with necessary hose clamps. Longer lengths or lengths of 3" stove pipe can be used as well. Length can be as great as 60 feet horizontal or vertical with up to four 90 degree bends.
The Vent-Sure can be used on most kilns
The VENT-SURE is designed to be used on almost all L&L kilns, as well as other brand kilns. You can order one of our Easy-fire kiln stands with the bypass/collection box attached to the bottom or you can attach the bypass collection box directly to the side of the kiln.
Three Year Limited Warranty
Because of our unique wall-mount fan we rarely replace fan motors.
Listed to UL499 Standards
The VENT-SURE Model VS-1 is c-MET-us listed for use with all c-MET-us listed L&L kilns. It is MET-us listed for all MET-us listed L&L kilns.
NOTE: Vents made by manufacturers other than the L&L may not be listed to UL499 standards if used with an L&L kiln. The same is true in reverse - the L&L Vent-Sure is listed to UL499 standards only with L&L listed kilns. If you have any question please contact the manufacturer of your non-L&L vent system.
