Paragon PAF20-1 Glass Annealer
Expand the production capacity of your glass studio with the massive 24.24-cubic-foot PAF20-1 glass annealing kiln. The PAF20-1 is designed for annealing, with a maximum temperature is 1100°F (593°C). It is stackable. Levelers are built into the feet.
The kiln heats from the four sides. Dropped, recessed brick grooves protect the elements for long life. The kiln is heavily insulated for economical operation. The insulating firebricks and fiberboard, wrapped in heavy-gauge steel, soak up heat for slow, efficient cooling:
4" thick top: 4" ceramic fiberboard
4-1/2" thick walls: 2" ceramic fiberboard and 2.5" firebricks
3" thick firebrick bottom
Spring-loaded quick-release door latches allow one-handed loading into the hot kiln. The doors open smoothly on heavy-duty 3/4" hinge shafts. The solid state Sentry Xpress controller continually monitors the firing. The sealed touch pad keeps out dust and is easy to wipe clean.
A mercury relay is standard on this kiln. The relay sends power to the elements on command from the digital controller. The life of the quiet, reliable mercury relay has been measured in millions of on/off cycles.
Paragon’s PAF20-1 is made for years of rigorous firing with a heavy 2" tubular steel frame. A heat shield and 1 3/4" air gap between the kiln and ventilated switch box help keep electrical components cool for long, trouble-free service. Costly heavy-gauge nickel-plated copper wiring is covered with high temperature glass-braided insulation. The thermocouple, which senses temperature inside the kiln, is protected with a high-nickel stainless steel sheath for long life. Turn off power to the controller when the kiln is not in use using an on/off switch on the control panel. The PAF20-1 has a durable high temperature, water-base finish. The PAT30-1 is made in America.
