    Comparing the SC-2 and SC-2 Pro Upgrade

    The venerable SC-2 has been in production since 1997. It is a proven design that we have steadily refined over the years. Thousands of artists in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Japan love their SC-2.

    The sleek SC-2 Pro has the same ceramic fiber firing chamber as the standard SC-2. In addition, the SC-2 Pro features a brushed stainless steel door with an easy-to-open 9” long wooden handle. The door opens and closes gently with an adjustable, spring-loaded catch on the bottom. The control panel is sloped for easy viewing and operation of the controller. The doors on both kilns open 180 degrees to give you full access to the interior. The SC-2 Pro also has an easy-access back panel for quick maintenance.

    Solid State Relay

    The SC-2 Pro elements are powered by a quiet, solid state relay. For your security, the solid state relay is backed by a mechanical safety relay that turns off the heating elements should the solid state relay ever fail.

    What Can You Make with an SC-2 Pro?

    You can try the amazing Art Clay Silver, PMC silver clay, and even glass clay. Shape these clays with simple tools. Firing the clays in a kiln to the correct temperature turns the clays into solid silver or glass. Fire china paint, enameling, and glass fusing in minutes. Create unique jewelry that you cannot buy in a store. Give incredible gifts that sparkle with dichroic glass. The SC-2 Pro fires up to 2000°F.

    A Proven Design

    The high-tech ceramic fiber firing chamber is wrapped in a steel inner case. The outer steel case remains cool due to the air gap under it. In addition, the case is slotted for air circulation. Electrical components, located in the base, stay cool even at extended hold times.

    Large Yet Portable

    The SC-2 Pro can hold three shelves of silver clay yet is portable enough to take with you to classes. Program the firing schedule that is perfect for your projects. The kiln turns itself off after the firing is completed. (Please note, however, that you should be near the kiln during operation.) The SC-2 Pro is great in classrooms because the elements are embedded in ceramic fiber.

    Even Heat Distribution

    As with the standard SC-2, the SC-2 Pro has separate heating elements in the left and right sides of the firing chamber. The back of the chamber has no element, so the heat distribution in the SC-2 Pro is even throughout the firing chamber, because heat does not build up in the back.

    Affordable, Easy to Program

    The SC-2 Pro, for a digital kiln, is surprisingly affordable and proudly made in America to exacting standards. It fires automatically at the rate and temperature you enter. A large, brightly lit display prompts for firing rate, temperature, and hold time. Use the hold feature to automatically soak any type of clay silver to its recommended time. Each SC-2 Pro includes a 1/4” thick ceramic fiber shelf.
