Paragon’s square CS-26 digital glass clamshell kiln is easy to load, because the top and walls lift out of the way, giving you full access to the kiln bottom. Assemble glass projects directly onto a shelf inside the kiln. Heavy-duty air pistons lighten the top. The comfortable lid handle stays cool and extends across the width of the kiln for convenient opening. A woven rope seal mounted on all four sides of the top acts as a gasket and cushions the top. The mating surfaces between the kiln top and bottom are hardened and sealed with a special refractory coating. The top of the kiln is protected with a sleek outer black sheet metal cover.
The lid elements are protected in six quartz tubes for a cleaner kiln interior. There is less dust in the kiln, because there are no element grooves in the firebrick top, which is one continuous, smooth surface. The quartz tubes protect the elements from contamination with foreign materials that could shorten the element life. The tubes absorb very little heat, allowing the elements to heat the firing chamber efficiently. Quartz tubes also protect the user from contact with the elements. Mercury relays are standard on this kiln! The relay sends power to the heating elements on command from the digital controller. The industrial-grade mercury relay in the CS-26 far outlasts all mechanical relays. The life of the quiet, reliable mercury relay has been measured in millions of on/off cycles!
