Ovation 1013 Oval Kiln

Decals    Glass Fusing    Glass Painting    Glass Slumping   


Paragon Ovation-1013 Oval Glass Fusing Kiln

Fast firing

The glistening Ovation-1013 will inspire you to make glass. It is rugged, reliable, and designed to last. When you need speed, you can rapidly fire production loads of glass. Enjoy fusing, slumping, pate de verre, and painting in this large production kiln. Imagine making large screen prints on glass. Fire quantities of glass decals, create large paintings with frit and stringers, experiment with recycled glass. You might even try glass weaving.

13” deep for slumping glass

If you have been firing a smaller kiln, you will be amazed at the space inside the Ovation-1013. Fire several large projects such as bowls or platters in one load. The 13” depth allows you to slump tall molds. The sidewall elements, mounted in two horizontal rows of grooves, improve heat distribution near the edges of shelves. This is especially desirable for large slumping projects.

Lift the lid effortlessly

Dual spring-assisted lid springs transfer the weight of the lid to a massive hinge assembly on the back of the kiln. This reduces the stress on the kiln wall to give your kiln the long life that Paragon kilns are famous for. The patented spring counter-balance, called the LiteLid, adjusts the hinge to compensate for expansion during firing.

Pinless element grooves

The Ovation-1013 lid elements use an element groove that eliminates element pins. The element coils are wider than the groove opening, so the elements stay in place without pins. The sidewall element coils are protected in dropped, recessed grooves.

Reliable relay design; optional mercury relay

The Ovation-1013 has two mechanical relays for long life. (The relays turn on the heating elements after receiving a signal from the digital controller.) The two relays last longer than the single relay of competitive kilns, because less amperage goes through each relay.

You can also order optional, industrial-grade mercury relays for your kiln. This type of relay is a must for long annealings and soaks, because the mercury relay is not only quiet but also outlasts other relays by a wide margin.

Tall stands for easy loading

The Ovation-1013 comes with two massive, heavy 18” tall stands at no extra charge. They raise the kiln to a comfortable height for loading and operation. They include mar-proof plastic feet.

Sloped control panel

The Ovation-1013 comes with a sloped control panel for easy viewing and programming. The digital keypad is mounted high in the switch box. This, combined with the 18” stands, brings the controller to a comfortable height.

The control box is finished in a durable high temperature, water-base blue paint. We use water-base paint because of the low emissions during spraying. This not only cuts down on pollution but also creates a better working environment for our employees.

Optional windows

The Ovation-1013 comes with two large, tapered peepholes. They offer a wide view of the firing chamber with little heat loss. Or you can order the kiln with optional glass windows, which replace the peepholes.

The peepholes, both sides of the lid and top rim of sidewall firebrick are hardened and sealed with a special refractory coating to protect the ware from dust.

Digital control

You will be amazed at the convenience of digital firing. The reliable solid-state Sentry controller continually monitors the firing so you can spend your time productively without closely watching the kiln. (Please remember, however, to check the kiln during firing and to monitor it near the expected shutoff time.) The sealed touch pad keeps out dust and is easy to wipe clean.

The controller has powerful features that you will enjoy using. Yet we have also worked hard to make the controller user-friendly. It has only 12 keys that are simple to use.

Miserly with electricity

Do you ever wonder how much electricity your kiln uses? The digital controller can figure this for you with the press of a button. Find out how little a kiln actually costs to fire.

Long lasting wiring

Wires are fastened to the heating elements with heat-dissipating connectors that have been refined and proven over many years in Paragon kilns. Elements are coiled from the finest high-temperature wire available. The thermocouple, which measures heat inside the kiln, is protected with a high-nickel stainless steel sheath for long life.

Made in America

The Ovation-1013 is made in America by skilled workers. About one in four employees have been with us for over 10 years. Many have been here 20 years.

The Furniture Kit

The furniture kit consists of carefully selected fireclay shelves and posts for the Ovation 10. When estimating the price of the kiln, include the cost of furniture.

  • Maximum temperature: 1700°F
  • 3”-thick firebricks in the walls, top and floor for solid construction and slow natural cooling
  • Heating elements in top mounted in pinless grooves
  • Heating elements in the lower sidewalls
  • ¼” heavy duty sheathed Type-K thermocouple
  • Full-formed galvanized steel base for extra strength
  • Sloped switch box for easy operation of the digital controller
  • Heavy duty wiring
  • Two front tapered peepholes with plugs for a wide view
