FSCG1 Firing Schedule

Shimbo Crystal Schedule 1

Step °C °F Hold Time
1 100°C/hr to 200C  180°F/hr to 392F  0 2:02  
2 200°C/hr to 500C  360°F/hr to 932F  0 3:32  
3 500°C/hr to 1270C  900°F/hr to 2318F  0 5:04  
4 999°C/hr to 1100C  1798°F/hr to 2012F  0 5:14  
5 10°C/hr to 1075C  18°F/hr to 1967F  0 7:44  
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.
