The Deluxe Ceramic Fiber Lid
The deluxe 2 3/4” thick ceramic fiber lid is standard on the Fusion-19. The heating elements are fully embedded in the ceramic fiber; this helps keep the firing chamber dust-free. The lid design eliminates element pins. The Fusion-19 heats from the top for even heat distribution across the glass surface. The ceramic fiber lid is the result of our constant quest for better ways to make kilns. After all, heat is Paragon’s passion.
Reliability at the Heart of the Kiln
The Fusion-19 has a two-year warranty. The temperature sensor, called a thermocouple, is protected with a high-nickel stainless steel sheath for long, trouble-free life. The kiln walls and bottom are made of 2 1/2” thick insulating firebricks. A heavy, built-in steel base, complete with rubber feet, supports the firebrick bottom. The top of the firebrick walls are hardened with a refractory coating for extra durability. These features are extra assurance that your Paragon kiln is built to last.
The Optional Mercury Relay
In addition, you can order the mercury relay upgrade for your new kiln. The mercury relays are ordinarily found only on industrial kilns. The life of the quiet, reliable mercury relay has been measured in millions of on/off cycles.
For your convenience, flip a switch to turn off power to the controller when the kiln is not in use. The large, comfortable 6” wooden lid handle stays cool. The lid is easy to lift because it is made of light-weight, space-age ceramic fiber. The digital controller is mounted at an angle for easy viewing.
Water-Based PaintThe Fusion-19 has a durable high temperature, water-based finish. We use water-base paint because of the low emissions during spraying. This creates a safer working environment for our employees and reduces pollution.
Optional Glass Window and Bead Doors
Beginners and experts alike love the optional high temperature 1” x 3” glass window. Watch every stage of fusing as your pieces glow from dark red to light red, and then to orange. Observe every stage of fusing, from tack fuse through a full fuse. Fine-tune a digital firing schedule by watching the glass and recording the temperature that gives you the amount of the desired fusing. Then program that temperature for future firings.
