Paragon Dragon Kiln

The Paragon Dragon Kiln is an industrial furnace designed for pottery and ceramic studios. And considering its features, it is surprisingly affordable.

This Paragon pottery kiln exudes power. Its 16,500 watts heat the 24” wide, 24” deep, 27” high interior to cone 10 with ample power to spare. Dropped, recessed grooves seat industrial-gauge elements.

Extra insulation saves energy and lengthens cooling. The 4” thick walls, top and door are made of 3” firebrick backed by 1” of ceramic fiber block insulation. The floor is 4 ½” thick firebrick. The extra insulation not only saves energy but also cools slowly. This gives the micro-crystalline structure and color of the glaze sufficient time for full development.

Long-lasting mercury relays power the elements. A bank of built-in NEC/UL compliant high-amperage fuses protects the paragon pottery kiln and circuit wiring. Potters who struggle with top-loading kilns will enjoy the Paragon Dragon Kiln. The door swings open wide on a heavy ¾” steel rod with sealed bearings. Two spring-loaded latches press the door tightly closed.

The 24” tall stand is also available with casters for easy moving. The stand is priced separately from the Dragon. Also available is the 8” tall stand, which comes with casters.

When ordering a Paragon pottery kiln, specify whether the stand is to ship separate from the Dragon or pre-installed and shipped as one unit.

Doorway Clearance

The Dragon will fit through a 34” doorway if the handles and back element cover are temporarily removed.

The Optional Furniture Kit (not included)

The 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.

What is the advantage of using optional APM elements?

APM elements last longer than standard elements. However, APM elements probably cost the same as standard elements when figured at element cost per firing. The savings is in maintenance time.

Optional Door Elements

Elements in the door improve heat distribution. Adding door elements to the Dragon does not change the overall amperage. The wall elements receive less amperage than the wall elements of a standard Dragon.

Optional AOP Outlet:
AUXILLARY OUTPUT FOR SENTRY II CONTROLLERS (VENT CONTROL) The AOP (Auxiliary Output) is an electrical outlet mounted to the kiln. Plug either a downdraft vent or an external alarm into the AOP. Control the vent with Cone-Fire or Ramp-Hold modes.
