How much will I shorten my element life by opening the kiln at 1800 degrees F for raku firing?
From our experience, opening the kiln at 1800F should not noticeably reduce your element life. We sell kilns to heat treaters, and they regularly open the kilns at that temperature range to remove steel parts.
