The vertical positioning of the natural draft, high velocity burners produces excellent fuel-air mixture without the need of electric blowers. (see illustration). The frame construction and exterior shell of the Geil Downdraft Kiln consists of heavy gauge structural steel at each joint to provide for maximum strength and durability. Tested and certified for consumer safety by CSA International (formerly the American Gas Association).
