The PAT20-1 is designed for annealing, with a maximum temperature is 1100°F (593°C). Expand the production capacity of your glass studio with the massive 17.26-cubic-foot PAT20-1.
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
Levelers are built into the feet. The massive lid is easy to lift with Paragon's patented pulley-free LiteLid. The LiteLid sharply reduces wear between the lid and top rim of firebrick. The truss and floating lid allow expansion of the lid. The PAT20-1 has two LiteLid assemblies.
The lid includes a 16" front handle and two side handles. A safety switch turns off power to the heating elements when you raise the lid. The controller remains powered and automatically resumes firing when you close the lid.
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 PAT20-1 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. 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 PAT20-1 has a durable high temperature, water-base finish. The PAT30-1 is made in America.
