For what its worth… finished the second 200lb. charge and this time halfway through I called larry @ watlow to see if we could speed up the recovery time. Turns out the scr was set @ 37 amps…turned it up to fifty and the temperature recovered to 2250 in 30/35 min.

The clamp temps range from 85f/140f

The little porcelain bushings are real hot…320+/-

Some spots in the cable are as high as 140f

Temperatures of the furnace sides ranges from 140f/180f

Peeking in the door at 2350 cooking temperature…something like staring into the SUN......
