If you require a large front-loading kiln with power to spare then the Paragon Super Dragon is for you.
The Paragon Super Dragon can handle any project firing up to 2350F such as Crystalline Glazes, Glass Casting, Industrial applications, Decals, Heat Treating, Porcelain, and Stoneware ceramics.

It does require significant amperage so this really is not a home studio kiln. It is perfect in a busy production studio or for most any industrial application.

Paragon Super Dragon Kiln Package is offered here as a package with Digital Touch Screen Controller and Orton Vent System.

Features of the Paragon Super Dragon Front-Loading Kiln

The Paragon Super Dragon kiln is an industrial furnace designed for pottery and ceramic studios. This front load industrial furnace is suitable for glass arts as well as metal heat treating applications. And considering its features, it is surprisingly affordable.

The Paragon Super Dragon kiln exudes power. Its 21,600 watts heat the 27” wide, 27” deep, 36” high interior to cone 10 with ample power to spare. This results in long element life of the front load industrial furnace because the elements do not “struggle” to reach high temperatures. 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 of the Paragon Super Dragon kiln is made of 4 ½” thick firebrick. The extra insulation on this front-load industrial furnace not only saves energy but also cools the kiln slowly without having to turn the elements back on. This gives the micro-crystalline structure and color of the glaze sufficient time for full development. Cool slowly to achieve dramatic shifts in glaze color such as iron reds and enjoy the richer look of gas firing. Create breathtaking pottery in the exciting Super Dragon.

The elements are “tuned,” which means hotter elements are placed in areas of the firing chamber that need more heat. This results in superior heat distribution within the Paragon Super Dragon kiln.

The Sentry 2.0 digital controller is standard on Paragon front-loading pottery kilns but here we include the upgrade to the Bartlett Genesis Touch Screen Controller. Results are repeatable from one firing to the next with astounding accuracy. The solid-state controller continually monitors the firing in the front load industrial furnace. This is almost like hiring an assistant.

Do you ever wonder how much electricity your kiln uses? The digital controller will figure this for you; merely program the kiln’s wattage and your cost of electricity into the controller. Learn to conserve energy by experimenting with firing speed, load density, etc.

The Type-K thermocouple, hermetically sealed for accuracy, is standard. We also recommend the optional Type-S for stoneware and porcelain.

Long-lasting mercury relays power the elements in the Paragon Super Dragon kiln. A bank of built-in NEC/UL compliant high-amperage fuses protects the kiln and circuit wiring. Potters who struggle with top-loading kilns will enjoy the Super Dragon. The door swings open wide on heavy hinges with sealed bearings. The Super Dragon has a floating door system with four spring door latches. The door hinge is fastened to a 2” tubular steel frame that extends from the floor to the top of the kiln. The latches of the front load industrial furnace press the door tightly closed.

The ventilated switch box is generously louvered for air circulation for the long life of the electrical components. Yet dust is kept to a minimum.

The stand is built into the Paragon Super Dragon kiln and comes at no extra charge. (Note: Casters are not available for the Super Dragon.)
Included here is the Orton Vent Master, which mounts to the back of the kiln.
