The Vulcan glass blower’s kiln heats approximately 50 pounds of glass to molten temperature. Mix custom glass colors. Make huge glass figurines, paper weights, blown vessels, stringers, and much more. Pull your own neon tubing. Make glass castings. The Vulcan is a glass blower’s dream kiln, designed by glass blowers.
Platinum thermocouple, thicker walls
The firebrick sidewalls are a massive 4 ½” thick. The extra insulation and heavy 12-gauge elements are designed for the stress of very long heat soaks. The deluxe S-Type platinum thermocouple with ceramic protection tube is standard on all Vulcan kilns. This thermocouple far outlasts the standard K-Type.
Quick release bottom section
The bottom section of the Vulcan includes the firebrick floor and the bottom row of blank 2 ½” high wall bricks. The bottom section is held in place with heavy duty spring-twist locks. Should a crucible crack and leak glass onto the kiln floor, merely replace the damaged bottom section. The 2 1/2” high wall section is blank, so you won’t worry about damage to a heating element from a cracked crucible.
Galvanized steel base plate
A heavy galvanized steel base completely covers the reversible brick bottom. Tabs around the galvanized base are pushed up under the stainless case on all sides and fastened with screws to strengthen the firing chamber. This is one more assurance that your Paragon kiln is built to last.
Fiber board retains heat when lid is openedThe Vulcan comes with a 2”-thick ceramic fiber board retaining ring insert that fits into a recess at the top of the firebrick walls. Cut a hole in the fiber board to fit your crucible. The fiber board holds heat inside the kiln when you open the lid. The Vulcan is 13 ½” wide x 18” deep. The fiber board retaining ring in place reduces the firing chamber to 15” deep.
