    I was wondering for those of you who have small (30 Pt+) DH kilns, did you paint the Aluminum coils to prevent corrosion?

    Not sure what a DH kiln is. Mine is a DW kiln.

    Dehumidification Kiln. Your's looks like it's a light bulb type with a fan and air holes.

    I know a number of people who use DH units for their kilns. None paint the coils. They just use them “as is” and replace them when they stop working. You can buy home DH units on Craigslist pretty cheap.
