Paragon has just introduced a glass kiln called the Pearl-18. The name comes from the clamshell tilt-top design. The top lifts away to give access to the shelf area. Air pistons assist in lifting the top.
The Paragon Pearl 18 Kiln heating elements are mounted in the lid using 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. In addition, a special ceramic fiber paper covers the firebrick element grooves. It is designed to eliminate brick dust inside the kiln.
The Paragon Pearl-18 is rated to 2000°F. The interior is 18 inch wide, 18 inch deep and 8 ½inch high. It fires on a 20 amp, 240 volt circuit. Electrical components are mounted inside the base of the kiln.
Kiln features the 3-key Sentry Xpress controller. with 8 ramps and storage for 4 custom programs.
