Frontloading Kilns

Rohde Electric Front Loaders - Overview

Helmut ROHDE GmbH have more than 30 years' experience in the manufacture of kilns and machinery for the processing and firing of ceramics. Over the past years, their range of products has been extended by different kilns for all types of heat treatment.

Products range from the starter models KE-B to the KE-N and KE-S series for professionals. The KE-L models will cease to be produced from 31 March 2018 although spares will continue to be available. The KE-B series has been refined and improved as a substitute.

Rohde's new kiln concept ELS together with the KE-S and KE-SH series have been developed for industrial applications up to 1400°C.

Rohde ELS

The ELS Ergo Load System is a kiln series patented by Rohde, which makes the daily loading routine significantly easier, safer and kinder on the back as it allows the kiln floor to be pulled out completely allowing access on three sides. This improves the loading density of the kiln by 20% which in turn, saves time and reduces energy and firing costs.

Kilns are supplied with the ST215 or TC304 controller as standard, other options are available.
