Glass Annealing Kilns from Paragon Industries

The PAF10-1 with spring-loaded, quick release latches.

08/26/2010

Expand the production capacity of your glass studio with the massive PAF and PAT series glass annealing kilns. They vary in size from 16 to 28.28 cubic feet. Finally make glass vases, bowls, and figurines without worrying about having enough annealing capacity.

A mercury relay is standard on these kilns. The relay sends power to the elements on command from the digital controller. The life of the reliable mercury relay has been measured in millions of on/off cycles.

The PAF Front-Loading Kilns

The PAF kilns are stackable. As your business grows, add another kiln without using more floor space. The feet of the top kiln fit into the four stacking points of the bottom kiln. Level the kiln in minutes with levelers that are built into the feet.

Spring-loaded quick-release PAF-series door latches allow one-handed loading into the hot kiln. The doors open smoothly on heavy-duty ¾” hinge shafts. The firing chamber opening is lined on all four sides with a fiber rope door seal. The doors also each have a seal where the doors meet in the center. Each door has a safety switch that turns off the elements when the door is opened. The controller remains powered and automatically resumes firing when you close the doors.

The insulating firebricks and fiberboard, wrapped in heavy-gauge steel, soak up heat for slow, efficient cooling.

The PAT Top-Loading Kilns

Level the PAT series kiln in minutes with levelers that are built into the feet. The massive lid is easy to lift with Paragon’s patented LiteLid, which does away with cumbersome pulleys and cords and dramatically reduces lid weight. Unlike pulleys and weights, the LiteLid is self-contained on the kiln. There is 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. Most PAT models have two LiteLid assemblies.

The lid includes a 16” front handle and two side handles. A safety switch turns off power to the heating elements when you raise the lid. The controller remains powered and automatically resumes firing when you close the lid.

A fiber rope seal lines the inner lid surface on all four sides. The top of the firing chamber where the lid rests when closed is grooved to accept the rope seal for a tight fit.

The kiln heats from the four sides. Dropped, recessed brick grooves protect the elements for long life. The kiln is heavily insulated for economical operation. The insulating firebricks and fiberboard, wrapped in heavy-gauge steel, soak up heat for slow, efficient cooling.
