Q. Do solid state relays improve temperature holds?
A. Yes. Solid state relays give more even temperature holds on small digital kilns. But not on large kilns such as the Dragon. The smaller the kiln, the greater the improvement in temperature holds. This is because a large kiln can’t fluctuate rapidly in temperature since the thermal mass of a large firing chamber is stable.
