Skutt chooses brick that is uniform in cell structure to ensure even insulation throughout the kiln. Skutt Kilns have up to five kinds of bricks: kiln sitter, peephole, straight, thermocouple and terminal.
Skutt Kiln Sitter Bricks are standard Terminal Bricks with a hole drilled for a kiln sitter tube to pass through. Thermocouple bricks also have holes that allow the element pigtails to pass through. Kiln Sitter Bricks are only needed for Skutt KS kilns.
When should you replace a brick? If the damage to the brick is above the element channel it is not normally necessary to replace it unless the damage is severe. If the damage is below the element channel it is advisable to replace the brick before the element is damaged. Click here to learn, according to Skutt, how to replace a brick.
