Pottery/Sno Industries Kiln Circuit Breaker Size


Hi, thank you for offering this service.  I'm an electrician and I've been asked to install a sno industries kiln, after reading your other replies, I know they are out of business.  The amp rating on it is 37amp at 240 volts.  SInce I don't have a manual to reference, I'm not sure what size circuit breaker it should have.  Is there a rule of thumb for kilns?

Thanks again.


Dear Jan,

    Thank you for your recent questions and the kind comment.

     Yes, Sno Industries is out of business and it is difficult to retrieve manuals for the kilns they produced. However, in your case, you will need a 40 amp circuit breaker to satisfy the continuous load.

    I hope this answers you question, I you have further questions, please feel free to contact me at any time. I am always at your service.

Will answer any questions on hand building, wheel, glaze, firing. Speciality questions to include those in glaze calculation and development, firing techniques. Please do not send questions on identifying pottery. Although I would love to add this to my question topics, I have a retreat to run as well as the studio and volunteering on AllExperts, and therefore do not have the available time to research indentification and marks. Thank you for understanding.
