The 7-sided digital Xpress-66 is the ideal
size for dolls, jewelry, and china, yet still large enough for most
ceramic projects. Imagine the stunning ware that you could make in this
The heat of the kiln is magical and offers
wonderful surprises. Ceramic glazes undergo a complete transformation
in the kiln. Opening a kiln to view your treasures is a festive moment
that you will never outgrow.
With its 3” firebrick walls, it can fire up
to cone 6. 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.
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 kiln features a top row of 2” high
blank wall bricks. Since the brick is without element grooves, it is
less susceptible to damage during loading than a grooved brick. 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.
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-66-3 is proudly made in America
to exacting standards. It 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.

You will be amazed at the convenience of digital firing. The reliable solid-state Sentry Xpress
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
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.
Program the Temperature Alarm to sound when the kiln
reaches a specific temperature. Set the 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 without having to stop the kiln to reprogram.
Hold (soak) the temperature in both Cone-Fire and Ramp-Hold. Experiment with Hold to improve color saturation of china paints.
Control both heating and cooling in Ramp-Hold.
Add Hold Time during firing without having to stop the kiln to reprogram.
Change the target temperature in Ramp-Hold during firing without having to stop the kiln to reprogram.
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.

The 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.
