Using ADVANCER® Shelves in Wood Fired Kilns

ADVANCER® shelves have been used successfully in many wood-fired kilns. However, they should not be used in areas where there will be direct flame impingement early in the firing, such as fire mouths and areas adjacent to checker walls in second chambers. In these areas a conventional, thicker silicon carbide is preferred due to their ability to better withstand thermal shock. Wadding on brick posts under ADVANCER shelves is also recommended to minimize surface contact areas with massive kiln furniture.
