All of the burn-out cycles I've seen.....5 hour for example: 1 hr. -
300F, 1 hr. - 700F, 2 hrs. 1350F, 1 hr 800F (+-) = 5 hrs total
Kerr suggests no temp change faster than 9 degrees per minute.
Therefore, to ramp from 300 to 700 would require 44 minutes, 700 to
1350 - 72 minutes.
Where are the ramp minutes in all these published cycles?
If the Kerr Tech rep. is correct - careful "ramping"; that would
make these referenced burn-out cycles look a lot like my Grandma
Hildigard's oatmeal-raisin cookie recipe....a pinch of salt, a slurp
of vanilla...whatever!!! Like...turn off the kiln at 1350, go have a
cup of coffee, check your email, come back and cast - skip the "email
check" on cloudy days.
Am I missing something?
