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.
Solid State Relays
The F200 has solid-state relays that are mounted to aluminum heat sinks. SSR's last far longer than standard mechanical relays and offer better temperature control during holds. SSR's also have no moving parts to wear out. You will also notice is that SSR's are silent. The only sound you will hear just the reassuring hum of the heating elements.
