Downdraft ventilation of electric kilns was developed and patented by Orton. A small amount of air is drawn into and throughout the kiln, collecting fumes and odors while improving firing conditions. How it works:
- Small holes near the top let air into the kiln.
- Air is drawn through the kiln.
- Fumes and odors are pulled from kiln near bottom
- Fumes are diluted with room air
- Gases are exhausted through aluminum ducting.
- Gases are vented outside.
