The GL-24ADTSD digital kiln is 15" high inside with room to bend glass for curved windows or cabinet doors and to repair lamp shades. Make huge glass-fused platters. Crack the door to drag a rod across the softened glass or to emboss designs in the surface. Paragon's GL-series are made for years of rigorous firing, as artists all over America can attest.
The insulating firebrick, wrapped in heavy gauge steel, soak up heat for slow, even cooling. The GL-series lid elements in the 240 volt version of the GL-24ADTSD use a new element groove that eliminates element pins. The element coils are wider than the groove opening, so the elements stay in place without pins. The spring-pressure latch and a ½" recess around the edge of the firebrick door seal the door tight. The door remains rock-steady on a heavy hinge shaft.
Mercury relays are standard on the GL-24ADTSD and are industrial-grade and far outlast mechanical relays. The life of the quiet, reliable mercury relay has been measured in millions of on/off cycles. Use the kiln' s side heat for taller projects such as drop-out vases sagged through a ring mold. Side elements, seated in dropped, recessed brick grooves, span the three walls in six horizontal rows.
The kiln's door elements offer unsurpassed heat distribution for difficult pieces. (The door, with elements, is always hinged on the right side.) The kiln uses infinite control switches to balance the heat between top and side/door elements. Kilns with side/door elements are equipped with a door safety switch. When the door opens, the switch shuts off the elements while leaving the temperature controller on.
