The Paragon Dragon Kiln

08/27/2003

The Dragon is an industrial furnace designed for pottery and ceramic studios. And considering its features, it is surprisingly affordable.

The Dragon exudes power. Its 16,500 watts heat the 24” wide, 24” deep, 27” high interior to cone 10 with ample power to spare. Dropped, recessed grooves seat industrial-gauge elements.

Extra insulation saves energy and lengthens cooling. The 4” thick walls, top and door are made of 3” firebrick backed by 1” of ceramic fiber block insulation. The floor is 4 ½” thick firebrick. The extra insulation not only saves energy but also cools slowly. This gives the micro-crystalline structure and color of the glaze sufficient time for full development.

Long-lasting mercury relays power the elements. A bank of built-in NEC/UL compliant high-amperage fuses protects the kiln and circuit wiring. Potters who struggle with top-loading kilns will enjoy the Dragon. The door swings open wide on a heavy ¾” steel rod with sealed bearings. Two spring-loaded latches press the door tightly closed.

The 24” tall stand is also available with casters for easy moving. The stand is priced separately from the Dragon. Also available is the 8” tall stand, which comes with casters.

When ordering a Dragon, specify whether the stand is to ship separate from the Dragon or pre-installed and shipped as one unit.

Doorway Clearance

The Dragon will fit through a 34” doorway if the handles and back element cover are temporarily removed.

Other Options

Orton Kiln Mount Vent, which mounts to the back of the kiln

The Furniture Kit
