Glass Fusing    Glass Painting    Glass Slumping   

Deluxe Quartz Tubes

Imagine the huge glass pieces you could make inside the Paragon CS-5630. Enjoy complete access to your artwork from the sides and front. Add delicate stringers or frit without having to move the shelf into the kiln later.

The roof elements are protected in 10 quartz tubes for a cleaner kiln interior. There is less dust in the kiln, because there are no element grooves in the top.

Heat from the Top, Walls, and Floor

The CS-5630 is 56” x 30” x 17” high. With elements in the floor, walls, and roof, you will enjoy unsurpassed heat distribution. The digital controller uses Power Ratio technology to vary the heat output between the top and bottom elements. Choose the ratio of heat in increments of 10 percent.

Extra Insulation and Woven Gasket

Lift the kiln top section with handles in the front and sides and with assistance from gas springs. The roof is 3” thick ceramic fiber, and the walls are 3” firebrick backed by 1” of ceramic fiber board (4” of total wall thickness). The extra insulation helps to maintain even temperatures. A woven gasket between the kiln top and floor helps to hold in the heat. The floor surface is a convenient 30” high from ground level. The 4 ½” thick firebrick floor includes two expansion joints.

Watch the glass through 2” x 3” peepholes mounted in the left and right sides. The engineered peephole plugs include steel handles. The kiln remains stable with locking casters.

Motorized Vent for Firing Molds

If you fire molds, you will welcome the motorized Orton Vent Master, which is mounted in the back wall of the kiln. The vent, mounted on rubber isolators to prevent vibration, removes moisture from the kiln through two rear-mounted collection cups. This reduces rust in the kiln. The vent is standard on the CS-5630 and plugs into an auxiliary output in the back of the kiln. This allows you to turn on the vent through the digital controller.

Low Maintenance

Deluxe, long-lasting mercury relays are standard. Gain convenient access to the electrical components by removing a single panel. The kiln includes access panels for easy replacement of the quartz tubes.


The CS-5630 is the very picture of ruggedness. A sheet metal ledge extends in front of the kiln by 3 3/4” to protect the brick floor from damage caused by leaning into the kiln. The digital controller is mounted away from the heat of the firing chamber for long life. The kiln base is welded from 2” x 2” steel tubing; the upper kiln frame is welded from 1” x 1” steel tubing.

Thermocouple with “special limit” wire

The thermocouple senses temperature inside the kiln. It is the small rod that extends into the firing chamber. The ¼” wide Type-K, 14-gauge, exposed-tip thermocouple is made with special-limit wire for superior accuracy. The exposed tip gives the controller a fast response time for even temperatures during holds. The thermocouple is made in America to our exacting standards.

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.
