PAT30-1 Annealing Kiln
Expand the production capacity of your glass studio with the massive 19 .9-cubic-foot PAT30-1 glass annealing kiln . Make glass vases,bowls,and figurines without worrying about having enough annealing capacity .
The PAT30-1 is designed for annealing,so the maximum temperature is 1100℉ (593℃) . With this kiln,you are buying only the heating capacity that you need for annealing .
Level the kiln in minutes with levelers that are built into the feet .
The massive lid is easy to lift with Paragon’s LiteLid,which does away with cumbersome pulleys and cords and dramatically reduces lid weight . Unlike pulleys and weights,the LiteLid is self-contained on the kiln . There is 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 . The PAT30-1 has three LiteLid assemblies .
The lid includes a 16 front handle and two side handles . A safety switch turns off power to the heating elements when you raise the lid . The controller remains powered and automatically resumes firingwhen you close the lid .
A fiber rope seal lines the inner lid surface on all four sides . The top of the firingchamber where the lid rests when closed is grooved to accept the rope seal for a tight fit .
The kiln heats from the four sides . Dropped,recessed brick grooves protect the elements for long life . The kiln is heavily insulated for economical operation . The insulating firebricks and fiberboard,wrapped in heavy-gauge steel,soak up heat for slow,efficient cooling:
4 thick top: 4 ceramic fiberboard
4½thick walls: 2 ceramic fiberboard and 2 .5 firebricks
3 thick firebrick bottom
Paragon's PAT30-1 is made for years of rigorous firingwith a heavy 2 tubular steel frame . A heat shield and 1 3/4 air gap between the kiln and ventilated switch box help keep electrical components cool for long,trouble-free service . Costly heavy-gauge nickel-plated copper wiring is covered with high temperature glass-braided insulation . Turn off power to the controller when the kiln is not in use using an on/off switch on the control panel .
Designed for production
Paragon's warranty is not affected by frequency of use . Fire your new kiln every day if you want,even in commercial settings . That will have no effect on the warranty period .
