The Cone art 2318D is rapidly becoming a favourite for home studios and schools. It is exactly like the popular 2318D except it is 18″ deep. This makes it much easier to load and unload. It has the same heavy duty double wall construction as all of the other Cone Art pottery kilns resulting in approximately 30% less heat loss through the walls than a brick only kiln. The 2318D kiln comes equipped with a Bartlett 2 zone controller and Cone Art’s patented lid lifter at no extra charge.
This kiln is available with either the standard V6-CF keypad or the new Genesis touch screen. The standard model is the BX2318D. The Genesis version is GX2318D.

The Bartlett V6-CF controller offers precise control and many features not available with other controllers. It comes with preset firing profiles, allowing you to fire by simply entering a cone number, as well as the option of user-defined programs. It will hold up to 6 user-defined programs with up to 8 segments in each program. Or as an option you can combine 2 programs to make one complicated program with up to 16 segments in it. The Bartlett controller has one thermocouple for each circuit in the kiln so it is excellent at ensuring even temperature from top to bottom. We still recommend the use of witness cones with all controllers. Those kiln model numbers with a Bartlett V6-CF controller installed are prefixed with a “BX”. For example BX 1822D.
The Bartlett Genesis is the next generation of kiln controllers. It has a modern, intuitive user platform, and touch screen display. The Genesis has different user-interface levels to match the firing knowledge of the user, and a graphical display of the firing’s progress. It is capable of storing up to 12 custom programs with up to 32 segments each, or you can simply fire by cone number and speed. This unit is Wifi enabled. Soon users will be able to register their units with the manufacturer’s website. This will allow you to download software updates to your laptop, and in turn upload those updates to the controller itself. Dimensions and wiring of this unit are identical to the previous V6-CF model, so people can upgrade to the Genesis from previous models with little effort. Those kiln model numbers with a Bartlett Genesis controller installed are prefixed with a “GX”. For example GX 1822D.
