Annealing?

This is info that I've collected either from Lampwork Etc or Wet Canvas.


Annealing information and charts:


Program kiln to hold at 960 for at least an hour longer than the beadmaking session. The idea here is to give that last bead a soak time of an hour at 960. Next ramp to 500 degrees at the rate of 100 degrees per hour. Then let the kiln cool to room temperature at its own insulated rate, which could also be programmed in, but the kiln is essentially off at that point.
It's OK to turn the kiln off for a minute to reprogram it if you need to adjust the hold time as long as it is started right back up again.
AFAP stands for As Fast As Possible. Depending on your kiln, the command may be 9999 or "Full" (full power) or maybe something else.

Here's another approach, using the same schedule, if the controller has a "skip segment" feature.
Program the kiln to hold at 960 and enter a really long hold time (say 12 hours or something like that). Then program a 2nd hold at 960 for one hour, ramp 100 degrees per hour to 500, then off (or ramp as fast as possible to room temperature - which is the same thing). The idea here is that once the last bead goes in, whether it's after two hours of beadmaking or ten hours of beadmaking, then the "skip segment" feature would be employed to move the kiln to the 2nd hold at 960 (for an hour) and then the rest of the schedule.
