Ceramic and Pottery Kilns

Paragon Kiln - TnF 82 Series
     Each kiln in the Paragon 82 series is large enough for most ceramic  projects. Figured at cost per cubic foot, they are among Paragon’s lowest priced hobby kilns. They use the same circuit size as most of the studio kilns. Upgrade to a larger kiln later without having to install a new circuit.
These kilns features a top row of blank wall bricks.  Since the brick is without element grooves, it is less susceptible to damage during loading than a grooved brick.
The S-82, SnF-82 and  TnF-82 are made of 2 1/2” thick firebrick in the lid, walls and bottom.  They are designed for low-fire ceramics, china paint, decals and gold.  For porcelain and stoneware, select a kiln made of 3” firebrick, as are the 82-3 kilns.
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.
