OPTIONAL Tall Heavy Duty Rolling Stand, 24” 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 Paragon Sentry 2.0 TNF243 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.
Take advantage of the heat that radiates from the kiln. Load greenware on the lower shelf. The heat from the kiln will dry the ware to prepare it for the next firing. Save the time and electrical expense of drying the ware inside the kiln.
The TNF-243 features sectional construction. Separate the kiln bottom and sections to repair bricks, change elements, or to move the kiln down narrow stairwells or through the narrowest doorways. Twist-lock spring latches hold the assembled collars securely.
The top row of brick in the TNF-243 is 2” high and without element grooves. It is less susceptible to damage during loading than a grooved brick.
Hinged at the bottom, the switch box on 8, 10 & 12-sided digital Paragon kilns opens forward for easy maintenance. A folding support arm holds the box in the open position. (See photo on cover.) The Sentry is mounted at the top of the switch box within easy reach. Operate it from a comfortable position.
The 10-sided TNF243 comes in deluxe 3” thick sidewalls, lid and bottom. The 3” brick is 20% thicker than the standard 2 ½” brick. For porcelain or stoneware, order the TnF-24-3, rated to 2350°F.
The massive lid is easy to lift with Paragon's patented “LiteLid,” which does away with cumbersome pulleys and cords and reduces lid weight to only several pounds of pressure. Most people can lift the lid with one hand. Unlike pulleys and weights, the LiteLid is self-contained on the kiln. No need to drill holes in the ceiling for pulleys. The LiteLid sharply reduces wear between the lid and top rim of firebrick. The truss and floating lid allow expansion of the lid. Ask competitors if their lid spring includes a truss and floating lid.
The controller has powerful features that you will enjoy using. Yet we have also worked hard to make the controller user-friendly.
