Comparing the SC-2 and SC-2 Pro Upgrade
The venerable SC-2 has been in production since 1997. It is a proven design that we have steadily refined over the years. Thousands of artists in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Japan love their SC-2.
The sleek Paragon SC-2 Pro kiln has the same ceramic fiber firing chamber as the standard SC-2. In addition, the SC-2 Pro features a brushed stainless steel door with an easy-to-open 9” long wooden handle. The door opens and closes gently with an adjustable, spring-loaded catch on the bottom. The control panel is sloped for easy viewing and operation of the controller. The doors on both kilns open 180 degrees to give you full access to the interior. The SC-2 Pro also has an easy-access back panel for quick maintenance.
Solid State Relay
The Paragon SC-2 Pro kiln elements are powered by a quiet, solid state relay. For your security, the solid state relay is backed by a mechanical safety relay that turns off the heating elements should the solid state relay ever fail.
A Proven Design
The high-tech ceramic fiber firing chamber is wrapped in a steel inner case. The outer steel case remains cool due to the air gap under it. In addition, the case is slotted for air circulation. Electrical components, located in the base, stay cool even at extended hold times.
Even Heat Distribution
As with the standard SC-2, the SC-2 Pro has separate heating elements in the left and right sides of the firing chamber. The back of the chamber has no element, so the heat distribution in the SC-2 Pro is even throughout the firing chamber because heat does not build up in the back.
Adjustable Door Catch
The Door Catch is located on the bottom edge of the door, just below the handle. This catch consists of a spring-loaded, steel ball-bearing mounted in a round, adjustable brass barrel housing. The ball latch will rest in a small depression located on the top edge of the control panel. The outer circumference of this brass barrel is threaded, so it can be screwed in and out to adjust the tension on the door. Simply adjust this barrel to get the tension you want. To increase the latching force, screw the adjustable housing out. To decrease the latching force, screw the adjustable housing in.
