"C5DHSC" Firing Schedule

Plainsman Cone 5 Drop-and-Hold Slow-Cool

This is modelled after the C6DHSC firing schedule. Please read its notes to understand the logic.

Step °C °F Hold Time
1 60°C/hr to 104C  108°F/hr to 220F  60min 2:20  
2 194°C/hr to 1128C  350°F/hr to 2063F  10min 7:46  
3 60°C/hr to 1183C  108°F/hr to 2163F  10min 8:52  
4 500°C/hr to 1128C  900°F/hr to 2063F  30min 9:28  
5 83°C/hr to 760C  150°F/hr to 1400F    13:53  
Start temperature assumed: 25°C or 75°F
"Fahrenheit degrees" is not the same as "degrees Fahrenheit". A 100° reading on a Fahrenheit thermometer is equal to a 37° reading on a Celcius thermometer. But "100 Fahrenheit degrees of temperature change" is equivalent "55 Celsius degrees of change". That is an important distinction to understand the above temperature conversions.
