Uses:  Decals    Low-Fire Ceramics

During busy seasons when orders are backlogged, you will be grateful you own a dependable Paragon kiln such as the digital TnF24. Studio owners call these kilns “real work horses.”

Paragon studio kilns have withstood years of abuse in school environments. High school ceramics teachers fire these kilns unmercifully, without remorse. Yet the kilns keep going. People swear by them.

Hinged at the bottom, the switch box on 8, 10 & 12 sided digital Paragon kilns opens forward for easy maintenance. A folding support arm holds the box in the open position. The Sentry is mounted at the top of the switch box within easy reach. Operate it from a comfortable position.

The TnF-24 features sectional construction. Separate the kiln bottom and sections to repair bricks, change elements, or to move the kiln down narrow stairwells or through the narrowest doorways. Twist-lock spring latches hold the assembled collars securely.

The top row of brick in the TnF-24 is 2” high and without element grooves. It is less susceptible to damage during loading than a grooved brick.

The 10-sided digital TnF24 comes in standard 2 ½” thick sidewalls and lid. The TnF-24 bottom is 3” thick. For porcelain or stoneware, order the TnF-24-3, rated to 2350°F. Since the TnF-24 studio kiln uses 2 ½” wall brick, we recommend it for low-fire ware, not for porcelain and stoneware.

The massive lid is easy to lift with Paragon's patented “LiteLid,” which does away with cumbersome pulleys and cords and reduces lid weight to only several pounds of pressure. Most people can lift the lid with one hand. Unlike pulleys and weights, the LiteLid is self-contained on the kiln. No need to drill holes in the ceiling for pulleys. The LiteLid sharply reduces wear between the lid and top rim of firebrick. The truss and floating lid allow expansion of the lid. Ask competitors if their lid spring includes a truss and floating lid.

The 24” wide stand for 10 & 12-sided kilns supports the brick bottom with framing that is 4 ½” wide across the top of each side. The stand is rock-steady, with 16-gauge frame and heavy 12-gauge legs.

The Digital Controller

The Sentry 12-key controller has powerful features that you will enjoy using. Yet we have also worked hard to make the controller user-friendly.

You may want to upgrade to the new Sentinel Touch Controller by Bartlett.  Please select that option in cart if desired.

Do you ever wonder how much electricity your kiln uses? The digital controller can figure this for you with the press of a button. Find out how little a kiln actually costs to fire. Learn to conserve energy by experimenting with firing speed, load density, etc.

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.
