Orton Ceramic

Orton ships products to more than 70 countries worldwide. The Foundation currently occupies a 33,000 square foot facility in Westerville, Ohio, a northeastern suburb of Columbus, Ohio, approximately 20 minutes from the Port Columbus International Airport. Orton’s 40+ employees are committed to providing the highest quality products and services to its customers.

Dr. Orton recognized the ceramic industry’s need to have a calibrated visual device to measure the amount of heat work delivered to ceramic products during the firing process to insure the products were mature. To meet this need he developed a series of pyrometric cones and established the Standard Pyrometric Cone Company to manufacture the cones. Even with the subsequent development of thermocouples and electronic temperature controllers, Orton’s pyrometric products continue to be a vital part of process control systems around the world.

Country Love Crafts supply Orton Pyrometric Cones.  Orton Pyrometric cones bend at set temperatures during the firing process to help determine approximate firing temperatures. Follow manufacturers instructions.
