Indirect Gas-Fired Kiln Packages
Nyle’s high-temperature indirect gas-fired kilns use a furnace and a heating coil. The gas flame is fully contained in the heating coil and heats the air from the inside out. Not only will this supply you with cleaner process air today, it will also provide you with less maintenance costs down the road.
What is the right size Gas Heating System?
Outfitted with our indirect fired gas-fired kiln packages, you have a chamber you can use for drying as well as heat treating. We use indirect fired heating rather than direct fired, for efficiency, more accurate temperature control, and safety.
Gas has become a low-cost alternative to heat your kiln. In some areas with high electric rates, it is even more economical than our DH kilns. The most economical kiln will depend on the price and availability of natural gas and electric at your location.
