This kiln is a beast! The Paragon F-200 is a true high-performance kiln and is like having two kilns instead of one. The 2” tall, 11” wide double doors give you 22” of width for inserting bead rods and, with the element in the top, you can fuse and slump glass up to 6” tall. When you raise the spring-loaded vertical-drop door to insert a glass figurine with a punty rod, the punty rod can extend outside the firing chamber through the smaller punty rod door thus allowing the glass to anneal safely.
It has durable insulating firebricks in the roof, walls, and floor. The element is mounted in the top of the kiln and seated in pinless grooves for safety. There is no sidewall element. The thermocouple, which senses temperature inside the kiln, is protected with a high-nickel stainless steel sheath for long life. No extra stand is needed; the built-in base stays cool even during extended hold times.
The F200 also has dual mechanical relays for extra reliability. They send power to the elements on command from the digital controller. Two relays last longer than the single relay of competitive kilns because of the reduced amperage going through the relays.
In addition, you can order the mercury relay upgrade with your new kiln. The mercury relays found on our large industrial kilns outlast mechanical relays. The life of the quiet, reliable mercury relay has been measured in millions of on/off cycles.
