Paragon Viking-24

The Viking-24 is a 10-sided, 3” wall digital kiln of sectional construction. Separate the kiln bottom and sections to repair bricks, change elements, or to move the kiln down narrow stairwells or through the narrowest doorways. Twist-lock spring latches hold the assembled collars securely.

The top row of brick in the Viking-24 is 2” high and without element grooves. It is less susceptible to damage during loading than a grooved brick.

As with our other 10-sided TnF kilns, it is single-section construction.

Viking kilns are designed for extra heavy-duty firing and high temperatures. They are similar to our standard studio kilns but with these additional features:

All Vikings are digital. As with the TnF studio kilns, they feature the Sentry 12-key controller, easy access switch box, ½ amp fuse, and LiteLid. But in addition, they use heavy-duty mercury relays instead of our standard mechanical relays. Mercury relays outlast the standard mechanical contactor relays by a wide margin. The Vikings have power to spare. They are 14,400 watt kilns and fire on a 70 amp, 240 volt circuit. (Note: we can also make these kilns for international electrical systems.) UL/CUL & NEC compliant high amperage fuses protect the kiln and circuit wiring. These fuses are built into the kiln switch box.

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.

You will be amazed at the convenience of digital firing. The reliable solid-state Sentry controller continually monitors the firing so you can spend your time productively without closely watching the kiln. (Please remember, however, to check the kiln during firing and 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 uses? The 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 firing speed, load density, etc.

Exclusive LiteLid Spring Counter-Balance

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.

Easy Access Switch Box

Hinged at the bottom, the switch box on the Viking-24 opens forward for easy maintenance. A folding support arm holds the box in the open position. The Sentry is mounted at the top of the switch box within easy reach. Operate it from a comfortable position.

Kiln Stand with Extra Support

The 24” wide stand for 10 & 12-sided kilns supports the brick bottom with framing that is 4 ½” wide across the top of each side. The stand is rock-steady, with 16 gauge frame and heavy 12 gauge legs.

If you move your kiln out of the way when not in use, order an optional deluxe kiln stand with steel casters.

The Optional Furniture Kit

The optional furniture kit consists of carefully selected fireclay shelves and posts for this particular model. 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.
