The 10-sided TnF23-3 comes in deluxe 3” thick sidewalls, lid and bottom. This is 20% thicker than the standard 2 ½” thick bricks. Since the TnF23-3 is designed to fire porcelain and stoneware, it will easily handle low-fire ware.
The massive lid is easy to lift with Paragon's patented “LiteLid,” which does away with cumbersome pulleys and cords and reduces lid weight to only several pounds of pressure. Most people can lift the lid with one hand. Unlike pulleys and weights, the LiteLid is self-contained on the kiln. No need to drill holes in the ceiling for pulleys. The LiteLid sharply reduces wear between the lid and top rim of firebrick. The truss and floating lid allow expansion of the lid.
This kiln features a top row of 2” high blank wall bricks. Since the brick is without element grooves, it is less susceptible to damage during loading than a grooved brick. A heavy galvanized steel base covers the reversible brick bottom completely. It folds up under the stainless case on all sides to strengthen the firing chamber. This is one more assurance that your Paragon kiln is built to last.
The Digital Controller
The Sentry 12-key controller has powerful features that you will enjoy using. Yet we have also worked hard to make the controller user-friendly.
You may want to upgrade to the new Sentinel Touch Controller by Bartlett. Please select that option in cart if desired.
