VENT-SURE KILN VENT SYSTEM Vacuum in the Duct makes this the Safest Downdraft Kiln Vent Available WALL MOUNTED VENT BLOWER 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 Dawson Kiln Sitter). VACUUM IS SAFER THAN PRESSURE The vent tubing is kept under vacuum instead of pressure (unlike competitive brands). 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 with a filter. LARGE CAPACITY 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. Only 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. Donít 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 collection box features adjustable damper for adjusting the amount of venting in the kiln The cord-mounted On/Off Switch Above is a Vent-Sure System shown attached to the stand of a Jupiter or Easy-Fire kiln. Below is a Vent-Sure System shown attached to a DaVinci kiln. THE VENT SURE CAN BE USED ON MOST KILNS The VENT-SURE is designed to be used on the Jupiter and DaVinci kilns, as well as other brand kilns. You can order one of our Jupiter 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 have almost never had to replace fan motors!) PATENTED ORTON DOWNDRAFT TECHNOLOGY The VENT-SURE downdraft ventilation system is produced under license from The Edward Orton Jr Ceramic Foundation and is covered by US Patent Nos. 4,863,374 and 4,978,295. This technology produces better firing by promoting higher temperature uniformity in the kiln. UL / CANADIAN LISTED The VENT-SURE Model VS-1 is c-UL - us listed for use with L&L Kiln Mfg. Inc. Jupiter and DaVinci kilns. See page 3. This mark is applicable in the US and Canada and is recognized the world over for its integrity.
