Features

The Paragon Xpress Kiln is the digital version of the Q-11A. The Paragon Xpress Kiln features the reliable and easy to use 3 Key digital Sentry Controller. This small kiln is rated for 2350 F and runs on a normal household outlet!
Offered here from Sheffield Pottery with Free Shipping to the lower 48 !

The Paragon Xpress Kiln fires rapidly to 2350F. Create breathtaking jewelry or small keepsakes using almost any medium you can imagine: silver clay, enameling, china painting, glass, lost wax casting, ceramics, stoneware, and porcelain. Since the kiln opens from the front instead of the top, it is ideal for copper enameling. This small kiln is a true multipurpose kiln.

Imagine the glass you could sag, slump, and fuse with this small kiln. Make pendants, earrings, cufflinks, and even bracelets. Enjoy the glittering beauty of dichroics. This kiln will give you years of creative enjoyment. It is light-weight; take it with you to seminars or on vacation.

The Paragon Xpress-Q-11A Kiln comes with the Sentry Xpress digital controller, which is mounted in the kiln base (instead of a side switch box) to save table space. The front control panel of this small kiln is tilted for easy operation.

The Sentry Xpress 3-key controller is packed with features. This small kiln includes Cone-Fire and 8-segment Ramp-Hold modes. (Note: Ramp-Hold and Cone-Fire on the Sentry Xpress do not include some of the advanced features of the 12-key Sentry 2.0.)

Features of the Sentry Xpress 3-key Controller for Ceramic Kilns

  • Fire to a pyrometric cone by merely entering cone number and slow, medium or fast speed.
  • Program Review lets you check the program you are about to fire.
  • Set a temperature alarm to remind yourself to close a vented lid.
  • Design Ramp-Hold programs with up to 8 segments (steps).
  • Skip a segment in Ramp-Hold during firing.
  • Hold (soak) the temperature in both Cone-Fire and Ramp-Hold.
  • Control both heating and cooling in Ramp-Hold.
  • Add hold time in Ramp-Hold during firing.
  • Change the target temperature in Ramp-Hold during firing.
  • Temperature Display throughout firing and cooling in your choice of °F or °C
  • Thermocouple Offset adjusts the thermocouple readout.
  • Set the Delay to turn on the kiln later to suit your schedule.
  • Error Messages report mechanical problems such as a disconnected thermocouple, stuck relay or broken element.
  • 12 Month Warranty
  • LED Lights show whether you are in program, review, or firing mode.
  • Colorful, illustrated instruction manual. Download it from the “Additional Information” section below to review these features in more detail.

    A 1/2” hole is stamped into the steel door case and includes a brushed stainless steel cover. We have left the firebrick behind the hole undrilled so that you can drill it to the exact size that you need for a peephole, vent hole, or extra pyrometer hole. (Most people do not need the hole and leave the firebrick undrilled.)

    The Paragon Xpress Kiln heating element, exposed in dropped, recessed insulating firebrick grooves, is easy to replace. The 2 1/2” thick firebricks store plenty of heat for slow cooling through the glass annealing range. For small glass pieces such as jewelry, you can anneal in this small kiln without having to turn the elements back on during cooling. (Extra heat is necessary for annealing large pieces, however.)

    The Paragon Xpress Kiln enables you to unlatch and open the door with one hand. No extra stand is needed; the built-in base stays cool during operation.

    The Xpress-Q11A can ship by UPS. Enjoy lower shipping cost and faster service for this small kiln. Specially designed cartons and foam padding assure that the kiln will arrive safely.

    Paragon kilns are built to be dependable. They are loaded with attention to details, such as the costly nickel-plated copper wire with high temperature glass-braided insulation. Wires are fastened to the elements with heat-dissipating connectors refined and proven over many years in Paragon kilns.

    Becky Johnson, a glass teacher in Dallas, Texas, describes opening the kiln: “I like to open the kiln with my students so that we can review and admire each other’s treasures together. The transformation of the glass inside the kiln is magical and mystical. It changes from pieces of arranged cut glass to awe-inspiring art. To be some part of that process is a true gift.”

    “Paragon kilns just go on working forever,” said Jeff Zamek, author of “What Every Potter Should Know.” He added, “Paragon kilns have one of the lowest incidences of repair of any kiln manufactured in the U.S.”

    The Furniture Kit

    The furniture kit consists of carefully selected fireclay shelves and posts for the Paragon Xpress Kiln. When estimating the price of the kiln, include the cost of furniture. The furniture allows you to stack multiple layers of ware. Without it, you could fire only the ware that would fit on the kiln bottom.
