Paragon Dragon Kiln


Paragon Dragon
The Dragon is an industrial furnace designed for pottery and ceramic studios. And considering its features, it is surprisingly affordable. Potters who struggle with top-loading kilns will enjoy the Dragon.

The door swings open wide on a heavy ¾” steel rod with sealed bearings. Two spring-loaded latches press the door tightly closed. The Dragon exudes power. Its 16,500 watts heat the 24” wide, 24” deep, 27” high interior to cone 10 with ample power to spare. This results in long element life, because the elements do not “struggle” to reach high temperatures.

Paragon Dragon Kiln Stainless steel FinishSHOWN RIGHT WITH OPTIONAL STAINLESS STEEL JACKET.
Dropped, recessed grooves seat industrial-gauge elements for long life. 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.

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. 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 inner door is recessed to help seal in the heat. Because these kilns store heat so efficiently, elements last longer. The extra insulation 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 this exciting kiln.

The Sentry 2.0 digital controller is standard on Paragon front-loading pottery kilns. Results are repeatable from one firing to the next with astounding accuracy. The solid-state controller continually monitors the firing. This is almost like hiring an assistant. 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. A bank of built-in NEC/UL compliant high-amperage fuses protects the kiln and circuit wiring.

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. Hinged at the bottom, the switch box opens wide for easy maintenance. Open the box in seconds by merely removing two screws at the top. A folding support arm holds the box in the open position. There is plenty of working space around electrical components.

The 24” tall stand is also available with casters for easy moving. The stand is priced separately from the Dragon.

Please see options for other stands available for the Dragon. When ordering a Dragon, 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.
