    Striaght Bricks make up the bulk of the bricks in any kiln. Straight Bricks do not have any holes or angeled channels.   Peep Bricks are standard straight bricks that have a tapered hole in them for a peep plug.   Kiln Sitter Bricks are standard Terminal Bricks with a hole drilled for a kiln sitter tube to pass through. Thermocouple bricks also have holes that allow the element pigtails to pass through. For non KM kilns only.

    Terminal Bricks have a special angled grove to make the transition from the bottom wrap to the top wrap. Terminal bricks also have holes that allow the element pigtails to pass through.   Thermocouple Bricks are standard Terminal Bricks with a 1/2" diamater hole drilled for a thermocuple. Thermocouple bricks also have holes that allow the element pigtails to pass through. For KM kilns only.    
             

    * There are two types of Terminal, Thermocouple and Kiln Sitter bricks (Old Style or Standard). Skutt changed the way the element pigtails pass through the bricks many years ago, so if you are replacing bricks in a very old kiln you may need Old Style bricks. If your kiln has a KM or KS code as part of the model number you do NOT need Old Style bricks.

    If the holes drilled in the sheet metal for the element pigtails are in a straight line you need OLD STYLE bricks, but if the holes are staggered you need standard bricks.

     

    How do I know if I should repalce a damaged brick?

    Replacing a broken brick can extend the life our your elements because the elements are supported by the bricks and as the elements get hot they also get softer and can sag if not supported. If the damage to the brick is above the element channel it is not normally necessary to replace it unless the damage is severe. If the damage is below the element channel it is advisable to replace the brick before the element is damaged.

    Do I need to replace my element(s) if I replace a brick(s)?

    It depends. If your elements are fairly new they are probably still flexible enough to carefully remove from the channels and then replace them when you are finished replacing the broken brick. If your elements are older they will probably be too brittle to remove and replace. Elements get brittle after being fired multiple times so if you are unsure, it's best to have the elements on hand before you start replacing bricks so you do not have to order them separately.

    In order to replace terminal bricks (the bricks with pigtails running through them into the control box) you will need to remove the element completely. If you are repalcing a terminal brick you will need a new element unless the kiln is a PK model with removable element connectors. Element connectors used on non-PK Skutt Kilns can't be removed and need to be cut to be removed.

    Our recommendation is to always have an element on hand when replacing bricks since it is very easy to inadvertently break an element.
