Paragon Kiln 82-3TNF

When you buy a Paragon  Kiln from American, we help with kiln prep, test fire, cone results and firing schedules.
All kilns listed below are priced for 240V, single phase. For all 3 phase, add $51.00 to kiln price

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” 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.

Features of the S-82 Kiln

  • Kiln Sitter with Limit Timer comes standard
  • 2 infinite control switches
  • Long-life electrical system with high temperature wire
  • Lock-in lid support with a positive catch

  • Pilot light shows when Kiln Sitter is on
  • Full firing capacity: fire ware directly on the brick bottom
  • Reversible brick bottom
  • Dropped, recessed brick grooves help prevent element bulging; eliminate the need for element pins; make changing the element easier and faster than some competing models that require element pins.

Paragon Kiln 23Series

The 10-sided S-24 comes in standard 2” thick sidewalls and lid. The S-24 bottom is 3” thick. For porcelain or stoneware, order from the 23-3 or 24-3 series, rated to 2350F. Since the S-24 studio kiln uses 2” wall brick, we recommend it for low-fire ware, not for porcelain and stoneware.The kilns designated with a “-3” come with deluxe 3” thick sidewalls, lid and bottom. The 3” brick is 20% thicker than the standard 2” brick.
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.
The 24” wide stand for 10 & 12-sided kilns supports the brick bottom with framing that is 4” wide across the top of each side. The stand accommodates the Orton Vent Master. The stand is rock-steady, with 16-gauge frame and heavy 12-gauge legs.
If you move your SnF-24-3 kiln out of the way when not in use, order an optional deluxe kiln stand with steel casters.

Paragon Kiln Viking24

The Viking-24 is a 10-sided, 3” wall digital kiln of 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 Viking-24 is 2” high and without element grooves. It is less susceptible to damage during loading than a grooved brick.
As with our other 10-sided TnF kilns, it is single-section construction.
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, amp fuse, and LiteLid.
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.
Hinged at the bottom, the switch box on the Viking-24 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.
The 24” wide stand for 10 & 12-sided kilns supports the brick bottom with framing that is 4” wide across the top of each side. The stand is rock-steady, with 16 gauge frame and heavy 12 gauge legs.

Paragon Kiln 27Series
Paragon Kiln Viking 27

The TnF-27-3 is easier to load than the deeper studio kilns. It is only 22” deep, yet larger inside than the 29” deep 10-sided 24-series kilns.
You can separate the kiln bottom and two 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 massive, 12-sided Paragon digital TnF-27-3 kiln is a profit center of the busy ceramic studio. It eats up stacks of low-fire ware as well as porcelain and stoneware. It is rated to a full cone 10. At a cost per cubic foot, the TnF-27-3 is one of the most economically priced standard kilns we make.
The 24” wide stand for the TnF-27-3 kiln supports the brick bottom with framing that is 4” wide across the top of each side. The stand is rock-steady, with 16-gauge frame and heavy 12-gauge legs.

Viking 27 - Plenty of Power
All Vikings are digital. As with our standard TnF top-loading studio kilns, they feature the Sentry 12-key digital temperature controller, easy access switch box, pinless elements, and the LiteLid counter-balance spring system. But in addition, they come with built-in high amperage fuses, and heavy-duty mercury relays instead of our standard mechanical relays. Industrial mercury relays far outlast the standard mechanical relays and are also quieter.
The Viking-27 has power to spare with 14,400 watts. The extra wattage helps compensate for aging elements or low voltage. This is ample power to reach cone 10 and, if you ever need it, to fire rapidly. Elements last longer, because the extra wattage and thicker 3" firebricks help the elements reach porcelain and stoneware temperatures without strain. Since the kiln can fire stoneware, it can naturally handle low-fire ceramics with ease.

The TnF-28-3, 12-sided kiln now 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 TnF-28-3 is 2” high and without element grooves. It is less susceptible to damage during loading than a grooved brick. We have upgraded the TnF-28-3 kiln to 48 amps. With beefier elements, it fires to temperature with less strain. It is rated to 2150F, ideal for low-fire ware.

The TnF-28-3 uses deluxe 3” thick firebrick throughout: in the sidewalls, the reversible brick bottom, and the 3” thick lid. 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.
