I don't have experience with clay mixers, but I do use a pyrometer that is
set into an automatic timer for our schools two kilns. The pyrometers work
fine but the coupling material is starting to chip of one of our probes so
it hasn't been firing to the right temp. We compensated by doing tests and
extending our firing and raising the temp one cone. The units seem to work
well. It's better than having to babysit a kiln all day. We have
environment vents on the bottoms of both of them.
