Ramping is the increase of heat inside a kiln. A Ramp Rate is the speed at which this occurs, it is messured in Degrees Farenheight per Hour.
to calculate ramp rate:
Final Temprature (or estimate) of chamber – Original Temprature of Chamber
Time to Complete (in hours)
for example, the kiln completed firing yesterday at 1947°F, after 6 hours, 48 minutes. here is the calculation for ramp rate:
(1947 – 85)/6.8 hours = 273.82 °/hr.
