For some reason kilns don't produce nearly as much heat as advertised. It says in the description it produces 20k DTU/s, which should be more than the metal refinery, but in fact the metal refinery outputs it's heat into a liquid, while the kiln's heat comes from the building itself. Buildings count as 1/5 for heat calculations, so the result is 4k DTU/s of output.
Please fix by either changing the output to be 5x higher, or change the description to match the actual values produced.
2. Build a kiln in an insulated vacuum
3. place 200kg of the same material the kiln is made from
4. heat both the kiln and the raw material to an arbitrary high point, say 1000 degrees C
5. transfer the heat from the kiln into a gas and note the result
6. transfer the heat from the 200kg of raw material into a gas.
7. compare the results of items #5 and #6. The raw materials contain and transfer much more heat.
You can also try with 40kg of raw material, in which case the results will be close to the same as the 200kg kiln, which doesn't add up.
