Paragon Furnaces Ceramic Xpress-1613-3 1287℃

Paragon Xpress-1613-3
The 3 wall Xpress-1613-3 kiln is designed for porcelain,so it easily fires ceramics,china paint,decals,and gold . The size is ideal for teachers of china paint or dolls . The 8-sided,16½wide and 13¼ deep interior is as tall as standard 7-sided kilns . The Xpress-1613-3 kiln is 43{89ed6a4e861fa1450bcdffea9c875977b8fbe2ec09d431aa27b85266faa15f02} larger than the 66-3 series,yet costs only a few dollars more .
The Xpress-1613-3 plugs into a 30 amp,240 volt outlet . (The kiln is also available for international electrical systems .) It uses6400 watts of power,more watts per cubic foot than conventional kilns . The extra wattage helps compensate for aging elements or low voltage . This extra power is ample for cone 10 and,if desired,rapid heating . Elements last longer,because the extra wattage and thicker 3 firebricks help the elements reach porcelain temperatures without strain .
Wires are fastened to the elements with heat-dissipating connectors refined and proven over many years in Paragon kilns . Elements are seated in dropped,recessed brick grooves . Costly heavy-gauge nickel-plated copper wiring is covered with high temperature glass-braided insulation . The thermocouple,which senses temperature inside the kiln,is protected with a high-nickel stainless steel sheath for long life . A switch on the front panel turns off power to the controller when the kiln is not in use . The controller is mounted near the top of the switch box for easy access .
The peepholes,both sides of the lid and top rim of sidewall firebrick are hardened and sealed with a special refractory coating to protect the ware from dust .
The heavy gauge stainless steel case is cold-rolled to the shape of the kiln for a tight fit . 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 .
A kiln stand is included at no extra charge . The stand is complete with mar-proof plastic feet and tall enough to accommodate the optional Orton Vent Master .
The Xpress-1613-3 is proudly made in America to exacting standards . The switch box has a durable high temperature,water-base finish . We chose water-base paint because of the low emissions during spraying . This creates a safer working environment for our employees and cuts down on pollution .
