Re: ordering new kiln -- single or three phase?

FYI The power supply in your building will determine the voltage and phase requirements of the kiln. For example if your building is powered by 208 volts and single phase electricity, your kiln should have the same power specifications. Contact your custodian or local electric company for this information. Please let me know if you need a quoted price. Hope this helps.

  Subject: ordering new kiln -- single or three phase?

  I am ordering a new kiln and have selected the Skutt 1218-3 with the automatic controller. What is the difference between the single phase and the three phase kilns? Also, has anyone had any trouble with this kiln or controller? I am replacing a older, smaller Skutt 818 that has crumbling walls and several hanging coils.
