OPTIONAL Tall Heavy Duty Rolling Stand, 32” Square x 12” High
A deluxe, rock-solid kiln stand with locking casters, is now an option. STANDS ARE NOT INCLUDED. Please check the options box if you would like a stand included with your kiln order. You will enjoy the convenience of effortlessly moving the kiln out of the way when not in use. The stand is rock solid. It fits together with interlocking components that assemble with one size of bolt. (Ships unassembled.)
The 12” tall stand raises the kiln to a convenient height for loading and unloading. Should you need a vent, merely slide the collection cup of an Orton vent into a mounting bracket on the top of the stand. The stands are a massive 32” square with solid tops to fully support the firebrick bottom of your kiln.
If you have been firing a smaller kiln, you will be amazed at the space inside the Ovation-1213. Plus, the 13” depth allows you to slump tall molds.
The sidewall elements, mounted in two horizontal rows of grooves, improve heat distribution near the edges of shelves. This is especially desirable for large slumping projects.
Pinless element grooves
The Ovation-1213 lid elements use an element groove that eliminates element pins. The element coils are wider than the groove opening, so the elements stay in place without pins. The sidewall element coils are protected in dropped, recessed grooves.
Lift the lid effortlessly
Dual spring-assisted lid springs transfer the weight of the lid to a massive hinge assembly on the back of the kiln. This reduces the stress on the kiln wall to give your kiln the long life that Paragon kilns are famous for. The patented spring counter-balance, called the LiteLid, adjusts the hinge to compensate for expansion during firing.
Sloped control panel
The Ovation-1213 comes with a sloped control panel for easy viewing and programming. The digital keypad is mounted high in the switch box. This, combined with the 18” stands, brings the controller to a comfortable working height.
The control box is finished in a durable high temperature, water-based blue paint. We use water-based paint because of the low emissions during spraying. This not only cuts down on pollution but also creates a better working environment for our employees.
The Ovation-1213 comes with two large you can add, tapered peepholes. They offer a wide view of the firing chamber with little heat loss. Or you can order the kiln with optional glass windows, which replace the peepholes.
The peepholes, both sides of the lid, and the top rim of the sidewall firebrick are hardened and sealed with a special refractory coating to protect the ware from dust.
Thermocouple with “special limit” wire
The thermocouple senses temperature inside the kiln. It is the small rod that extends into the firing chamber. The ¼” wide Type-K, 14-gauge, exposed-tip thermocouple is made with special-limit wire for superior accuracy. The exposed tip gives the controller a fast response time for even temperatures during holds. The thermocouple is made in America to our exacting standards.
