Looks like ICDs are susceptible to EMI/RFI interference. In an electric kiln/furnace, there is a lot of switching going on that can generate stray fields. Hard to say how much unless the system was put in an anechoic chamber and tested. Walking around the shop with an AM/FM radio may be able to identify if your equipment is noisy.

I have a friend whose icd was triggered by his cell phone receiving a call. He had his phone in his inside jacket pocket. Needless to say his phone no longer resides on his body.

Boston Scientific has posted some papers and the NIH has some studies. Google EMI RF interference ICD. Two links posed for reference.
