LB 22.5 Long Blade Friendly:
Evenheat is constantly developing and testing new designs to increase the performance and value of our heat treat ovens. The LB Series represents the culmination of that effort.

The LB 22.5 runs a close second in popularity and like the LB 18, is most often ordered with the TAP control. It's remarkably even all the way to the back.

The LB Series side-element-only design was inspired by culinary and long-blade makers as well as the knife making community as a whole. Knife makers needed to use the entire length of the chamber without overheating their blades at the back wall. We took a fresh look at our designs and created the side-only heating element LB Series.

The results are incredible: front to back temperature distribution is dead-nut. Whether you're making culinary, tactical, fixed blades, folders, doing gun work or something else entirely, the LB Series sets the new standard!

The LB Series represents the ultimate mix of bladesmith input and Evenheat design. The LB is quite simply the finest heat treat oven on the planet!

Touchscreen technology offers many improvements and Evenheat is dedicated to providing this technology to our customers.

TAP Controller

All Information Displayed on One Screen: Because the TAP Controller offers a fairly large display screen it is possible to display all firing information on one screen, in full text, while firing. There's no need to touch the screen and go looking. The display will show your current firing segment or step, current kiln chamber temperature, the current programmed rate per hour and hold time. It's all there at one time and on one screen. We love this feature as it tells us exactly where we are in the firing without having to touch the control.

The Display from a Distance: While programming and using the TAP Controller, screen information is presented in a legible and easy to understand text and font size. While sitting at the Standby position or when running a firing schedule the TAP Controller screen changes to a large font, high contrast display which is easily seen from across the studio or workspace. Near or far, the TAP display has you covered.

Running a Pre-loaded or Stored Firing Schedule: The TAP Controller is supplied with pre-loaded firing schedules that differ depending upon the style of kiln. Currently, we offer pre-loaded glass, ceramic and metal clay firing schedules (programs). All of our pre-loaded firing schedules have been developed professionally on Evenheat equipment.

Custom Mode Programming:  Feel free to develop your own, custom programs. The TAP Controller makes it very easy and understandable. All firing data is shown on the touchscreen as you develop which makes it very easy to keep your place and not get lost in the process. Your firing data will be shown in a table format and is entirely legible and understandable. This full-text feature of the TAP Controller is one of its highlights. All information is available to the eye.

The TAP Controller contains a vast amount of memory and there is no practical limit to the number of programs you wish to create and store. There is also no practical limit on the number of available segments or steps used for a firing schedule. You're free to create exactly what you want.

Modifying Firing Schedules: Firing schedules (programs), whether pre-loaded or custom, are sometimes not exactly to your liking or needs. The TAP Controller allows you to modify or edit any stored program more to your liking. Simply choose to edit the firing schedule and make the changes.

Wi-Fi Capability: The TAP Controller is designed for computer networking via USB Wi-Fi or Ethernet connections. This connectivity allows the artist to monitor the kiln, develop and edit programs and perform TAP Controller functions from a network connected computer, tablet or other mobile devices. WiFi Dongle Add-On

Add Time to Hold While Firing: During firing, it's not uncommon that additional hold time may be needed to achieve the desired results. The TAP responds to this desire by allowing you to add any amount of time to the Hold while in progress.

Add Temperature to a Hold While Firing: During firing, it's not uncommon to add to the set point temperature to achieve the desired results. The TAP responds to this desire by allowing you to change the set point temperature while the Hold is in progress.

Skipping Ahead to the Next Segment: You'll find moments while firing when you would like to stop the process and skip ahead to the next available segment or step (very common in glass firing). The TAP Controller offers a single touch feature that allows just for this. It's called Skip Ahead. The Skip Ahead feature does what it sounds like: it skips ahead to the next segment. With glass firing, the segment or step right after the fusing or slumping operation is the anneal, which is exactly where you want to go. It's a great feature that allows you to make the glass you want to make.

Accessible USB and Ethernet Ports: Evenheat has designed our TAP Controller package for instant, direct access to the USB and Ethernet ports. There's no need to disassemble the kiln to access these ports. These ports are readily accessible from the outside of the Controller package, simply plug in and go. Proper design and execution, it's what you expect and get from Evenheat.

Cost per Firing: The TAP Controller monitors many functions, among them is your actual cost per firing. Simply enter your cost per kilowatt hour and the wattage of your kiln. The TAP Controller uses this information to calculate a realistic approximation of the cost of your electrical usage for your firing schedules.

Graphing: During firing the TAP Controller collects the kiln chamber temperature and creates a visual graph that can be seen with a single touch of the screen. The graph is continually updated every minute for the duration of the firing. This allows the artist to monitor the history of the firing as it takes place. The visual graph is also stored in memory, along with the particular firing data and can be recalled and inspected at any time.

Software Updates: Software updates will be available on a semi-annual or as-needed basis and are downloaded to the TAP Controller via a USB thumb drive, Wi-Fi connection or Ethernet connection. Updating is fast and simple and will give you the latest in features, themes, and functionality.

Diagnostics: Diagnostics provide a real-time look into the usage of critical kiln components. From the diagnostics screen, you can view the actual number of relay actuations, the amount of time the heating elements have been on, and the amount of time the thermocouples have been exposed to high temperatures.

Logs: The TAP Controller stores all functions and user keystrokes into various logs. These logs become valuable for viewing previous firing graphs, error events, and programming functions.

Options & Accessories

Loud Alarm Option

Cut through your shop noise with our Loud Alarm Option. The Loud Alarm sounds at a loud 80+ decibels! You'll never miss the opportunity to properly quench again.

The load alarm option alerts the user when the heat treat process temperature and hold have been reached, and more importantly when it's over and it's time to quench. Rampmaster, Genesis & TAP equipped Evenheat KF, KO, KH as well as HT-1 and HT-2 heat treat oven models include a built-in alarm jack for easy install: simply attach the alarm and plug it in.

This Loud Alarm Option is intended for use on production models as of mid-April 2014 (serial numbers 107120 and greater). For those who own an oven made prior to this date (serial numbers 107119 and lower) we offer a Loud Alarm Retro- Fit Kit that allows you to enjoy this great feature.

Quiet Drive Solid State

Solid state relays are special switches used to turn the heating elements on and off. Solid state relays enhance control performance, extend the life of the heating elements and are expected to last the life of the kiln.

Our Quiet Drive Solid State relays can turn the heating elements on and off up to 60 times per second as opposed to traditional mechanical relays that tend to be limited to about once every 10 seconds. This fast response time translates into tighter and more precise temperature regulation.

Evenheat uses special solid state relays that will only switch the heating elements on and off when the AC voltage is at 0V. It's called "Zero Crossing" and our heating elements love it and they show that love by lasting longer!

Solid state, by its nature, has no moving parts (that's why it's called solid state). No moving parts mean nothing to wear out and nothing to replace. Unlike traditional mechanical relays, our solid state relays are expected to last the life of your kiln.

Wifi Dongle Add-On - TAP Controller Only

Wi-Fi dongle necessary to establish a Wi-Fi Internet connection for the TAP control.

WiFi Dongle Setup Instructions

The TAP control uses this dedicated USB Wi-Fi dongle for Wi-Fi Internet access. This connectivity allows the artist to monitor the kiln, develop and edit programs and perform TAP Controller functions from a networked computer, tablet or mobile device.

Standard, off-the-shelf Wi-Fi dongles will not work. You must use this particular dongle with the TAP control.
