The 14-9PAK china painting kiln is 2" deeper than the earlier X-14J and of single-piece construction. The 14-9PAK comes with an analog set point controller. It is very simple to operate: turn a pointer knob to the desired temperature printed on the switch box. Press the “on” button. The heating elements remain powered until the kiln reaches temperature. Then the kiln shuts off automatically.
The 14-9PAK 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 stand, complete with mar-proof plastic feet, is tall enough to accommodate the optional Orton Vent Master.
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.
