Product: IGUANA Kiln, Model/SKU: 7261111G00, Price: $3,738.30

IGUANA

Fast Firings    Low-Fire Ceramics    Porcelain and Stoneware   


Paragon Iguana

The Iguana is powered with reliable extra heavy-duty elements. This results in long element life, because the elements do not “struggle” to reach high temperatures. 10,800 watts heat the 18” wide, 18” deep, 22 ½” high interior to a full cone 10.

Easy Installation

The 240 volt Iguana plugs into a standard 6-50R outlet, so you can fire it on the outlet most studio kilns already use.

Easy to Load

The Iguana is easy on the back muscles. With the optional 22” stand, the interior floor height is a comfortable 34 ½”.

Industrial-gauge elements are seated and protected in dropped, recessed firebrick grooves. The elements are easy to replace, because you can comfortably reach into the kiln.

Potters and ceramists who struggle with top-loading kilns will enjoy the Iguana. The door swings open wide on a heavy ½” steel rod with sealed bearings. A spring-loaded latch presses the door tightly closed. A recessed firebrick lip around the door seals in heat.

The Sentry digital controller is manufactured by Orton Ceramic Foundation. It is unsurpassed in reliability for a controller in its price range. It includes a programmed cool-down, Cone-Fire and Ramp-Hold modes, and is capable of accepting types K, R, or S thermocouples. A type-K thermocouple with an Inconel® sheath comes standard. We also recommend the optional Type-S for stoneware and porcelain.

Do you ever wonder how much electricity your kiln uses? The digital controller will figure this for you; merely program the kiln’s wattage and your cost of electricity into the controller. Learn to conserve energy by experimenting with firing speed, load density, etc.

For your peace of mind, the Iguana includes a safety switch that shuts off power to the controller when not in use.

The ventilated switch box is generously louvered for air circulation for the long life of the electrical components. Yet dust is kept to a minimum.

Options

  • 22” tall stand
  • Casters for stand
  • Door elements
  • Stainless steel finish
  • Orton Kiln Master Vent, which mounts to the back of the kiln. Mounting holes are drilled in every Iguana for easy installation.

Iguana Features

  • Saves electricity with 3” firebricks
  • Cone 10, 2350°F
  • Type-K thermocouple with ¼” sheath, or optional type-S
  • Sentry 2.0 controller with programmed cool-down
  • Two tapered peepholes in the side give a wide view of the interior with little heat loss.
  • Available in 200, 208, 220, 240, 480 volts, 1 & 3 phase
  • Proportional power elements for more even heating

  • Four hand-lifts

    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.

    3 C-17 full shelves (16” x 14” x 5/8”)

    1 C-17H half shelf (8” x 14” x 5/8”)
