Paragon 14-9

Uses:  China Painting    Decals   

The digital 14-9SSP china painting kiln is 2" deeper than the earlier X-14J and of single-piece construction. The 14-9SSP uses the Sentry Xpress 3-key digital controller. Experiment with temperature hold to achieve brilliant, saturated china colors.

The 14-9SSP fires to 1700°F on a 120 volt, 20 amp, 5-20R outlet. The lid comes with a lock-in lid support for easy loading and the Prop-R-Vent for two stage venting of china paint fumes.

The heavy gauge stainless steel case is cold-rolled to the shape of the kiln for a tight fit. 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.

Wires are fastened to the elements with heat-dissipating connectors refined and proven over many years in Paragon kilns. Elements are coiled from the finest high-temperature wire available.

  • The Furniture Kit

    The furniture kit consists of carefully selected fireclay shelves and posts for this particular model. When estimating the price of the kiln, include the cost of furniture. The furniture allows you to stack multiple layers of ware. Without it, you could fire only the ware that would fit on the kiln bottom.

  • Heavy Duty Rolling Stand Included

  • A deluxe, rock solid kiln stand with locking casters is included at no extra charge. You will enjoy the convenience of effortlessly moving the kiln out of the way when not in use.

    The stand has a mounting bracket for the Orton Kiln Vent and a greenware drying rack. To install an Orton Kiln Vent, slide the vent collection cup into the vent bracket. The new stand eliminates the need for the collection cup mounting bolt.

    Take advantage of the heat that radiates from the kiln. Load greenware on the lower shelf. Heat from the kiln will dry the ware to prepare it for the next firing. Save the time and electrical expense of drying the ware inside the kiln.

    Assemble the stand with simple tools. The stand slides together with interlocking components that assemble with one size of bolt.

    Designed for production

    Paragon’s warranty is not affected by frequency of use. Fire your new kiln every day if you want, even in commercial settings. That will have no effect on the warranty period.

    Optional colors at no extra charge

    Brighten your studio with color! Order your kiln in one of our standard colors at no extra charge . . . berry, black, blue, hot pink, jade, navy, purple, or turquoise.
