Idowu Oluwatuase Idowu | Sanya Olajide Tunmilayo
Abstract: A low cost electric kiln was designed and fabricated for low temperature applications. The newly fabricated kiln was made using materials and technologies sourced locally. The kiln consists of kiln chamber, heating elements, a variable thermostat and lagging materials of insulating bricks and fibre glass. The production cost of the electric kiln is twenty-five thousand naira compare with imported ones that cost within the range of thirty-five thousand naira and forty-four thousand naira excluding importation and transportation charges.
