MAX-119 (120 volt Multi-Use Kiln)
Uses: China Painting Crystalline Glazes Decals Dolls Glass Casting Glaze Testing Low-Fire Ceramics Porcelain and Stoneware
The Max-119 is heavily insulated so you can fire to 2300°F on 120 volts, making this kiln ideal for glaze testing. Fire small ceramic projects, glass jewelry, clay beads, and china painting.
Glaze test kiln
Buy a Max-119 for your classroom. Students can make gifts in time for a birthday or holiday without waiting until the school’s large kiln is fired.
New teachers inherit bags of unlabeled clay. Many ceramic firings have been ruined because the clay was fired to the wrong temperature, which disappoints students. With a small kiln, you can test unlabeled clay.
Students can test glazes while they feel the momentum instead of waiting to fire them in the large kiln. A test kiln creates enthusiasm for a clay program. And a test kiln is relatively inexpensive. A glaze test kiln vastly increases students’ knowledge of glazes.
The walls are 4 1/2” thick! The 2 1/2” thick firebricks are backed with an extra 2” of block insulation between the firebricks and the stainless steel case. The lid is 3” thick, and the bottom is 4 1/2” thick.
The digital controller
The Sentry Xpress 3-key controller is packed with features. It includes Cone-Fire and Ramp-Hold modes. (Note: Ramp-Hold and Cone-Fire on the Sentry Xpress do not include some of the advanced features of the 12-key Sentry 2.0.)

Features of the Max-119
A heavy galvanized steel base covers the reversible brick bottom completely. It folds up under the stainless case on all sides to strengthen the firing chamber. This is one more assurance that your Paragon kiln is built to last.

A kiln you won’t outgrow
You will never outgrow a small kiln. If you later buy a larger kiln, continue to use the Max-119 for testing or small projects. Perfect a new design in the small kiln before running production quantities in the large kiln. A small test kiln is invaluable in solving ceramic glaze problems and perfecting difficult glazes such as crystallines.
