Paragon Furnaces Ceramic TNF23 1287℃

Paragon TnF-23-3
If you have difficulty loadng deep kilns,we recommend the 22¼deep TnF-23-3 . If you need extra firingcapacity in a short kiln,consider the 12-sided TnF-27-3 .
During busy seasons when orders are backlogged,you will be grateful you own a dependable Paragon kiln such as the TnF-23-3 . Studio owners call these kilns real work horses .
Paragon studio kilns have withstood years of abuse in school environments . High school ceramics teachers fire these kilns unmercifully,without remorse . Yet the kilns keep going . People swear by them .
The 10-sided TnF-23-3 comes in deluxe 3 thick sidewalls,lid and bottom . This is 20{89ed6a4e861fa1450bcdffea9c875977b8fbe2ec09d431aa27b85266faa15f02} thicker than the standard 2½thick bricks . Since the TnF-23-3 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 . Ask competitors if their lid spring includes a truss and floating 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 loadng than a grooved brick .
The 24 wide stand for 10 & 12-sided kilns supports the brick bottom with framing that is 4½wide across the top of each side . The stand accommodates the Orton KilnVent . The stand is rock-steady,with 16-gauge frame and heavy 12-gauge legs .
If you move your TnF-23-3 kiln out of the way when not in use,order an optional deluxe kiln stand with steel casters .
Something to consider if you already own a 12-sided kiln: Why purchase a 10-sided kiln such as the TnF-23-3 when you produce enough ware to fill a 12-sided kiln It is because some ware fires more efficiently in a 10-sided kiln . Example: 10- and 12-sided kilns both fire four 10 wide bowls per shelf . When you own both sizes of kilns,you can choose the most efficient kiln for each size of ware . The 10-sided kiln is a good choice for those whose production depends on short firingcycles . Since 10-sided kilns are smaller than 12-sided,they can heat and cool faster . The 10-sided shelves are lighter than the 12-sided,and easier to lift .
A heavy galvanized steel base covers the reversible brick bottom completely . It folds up under the stainless case on all sides to strengthen the firingchamber . This is one more assurance that your Paragon kiln is built to last .
You will be amazed at the convenience of digital firing The reliable solid-state Sentry controller continually monitors the firingso you can spend your time productively without closely watching the kiln . (Please remember,however,to check the kiln during firingand to monitor it near the expected shutoff time .) The sealed touch pad keeps out dust and is easy to wipe clean .
The controller has powerful features that you will enjoy using . Yet we have also worked hard to make the controller user-friendly .
Do you ever wonder how much electricity your kiln usesThe digital controller can figure this for you with the press of a button . Find out how little a kiln actually costs to fire . Learn to conserve energy by experimenting with firingspeed,loaddensity,etc .
