Manufacturer strongly suggests that items never be placed directly on kiln floor.
The Clean air system starts when the kiln starts, then turns off automatically when the firing is complete. After slow cooling to 1000F (to reduce possible stress cracks in your ware) the fan restart to cool faster and again turns off at 140F when the load may be safely unloaded. New features include stopping fan at pre-set temperature and restarting at 1000º F to gently cool to 140º F, when it turns off for unloading. You get a little quicker cool down with the best annealed and strongest pieces possible. This unit is now certified by CSA and certified to UL standard 499 for use on Cress kilns. It reduces cross contamination of firing colors by exhausting the fumes separately from the top, middle, and bottom.
