Paragon Viking-28 Kiln

Heavy Duty Rolling Stand Included, 32” Square x 12” High

A deluxe kiln stand with locking casters is included at no extra charge. Enjoy the convenience of rolling the kiln out of the way when not in use. The stand is rock solid and ships assembled. It fits together with interlocking components for extra strength.

To install an Orton Kiln Vent, merely slide the collection cup into a mounting bracket on top of the stand.

Take advantage of the heat that radiates from the kiln by loading greenware on the shelf under the kiln. Heat from the kiln will dry the ware to prepare it for the next firing. Save time and energy.

The Paragon Viking-28 Kiln is a 12-sided 3” wall digital kiln. It features 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 Paragon Viking-28 Kiln is 2” high and without element grooves. It is less susceptible to damage during loading than a grooved brick.

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, 240v circuit. (Note: we can also make these 240v 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.

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 Paragon Viking-28 Kiln 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 240v 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 Paragon Viking-28 Kiln out of the way when not in use, order an optional deluxe kiln stand with steel casters.

Other Features of the Paragon Electric Kiln:

  • 2”-high blank bricks in the top row of sidewall bricks
  • Sectional design for easier maintenance and moving through narrow passageways
  • Sections secured with deluxe twist-lock spring latches
  • Lock-in lid support
  • Large, tapered peepholes
  • Ventilated switch box
  • Hand lifts
  • Dropped, recessed brick grooves, which do not require pinning
  • Heavy duty elements
  • Dust-free coating in the peepholes, both sides of the lid and top rim of firebrick
  • Heavy gauge stainless steel case
  • Operating instructions silk-screened on the switch box
  • Certified to CSA & UL Standard 499
  • Full-formed steel base

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.
