Paragon Xpress-1193

The heat of the kiln is magical and offers wonderful surprises. Stained glass, enamels, and ceramic glazes undergo a complete transformation in the kiln. Ask kiln owners . . . opening a kiln to view your treasures is a festive moment that you will never outgrow.

The 3" wall Xpress-1193 can fire ceramics on a 120 volt, 20 amp outlet. With a temperature rating of 2300°F, it is ideal for small ceramic projects and glaze testing.

Glaze test kiln

The Xpress-1193 is popular in classrooms. Students can make gifts in time for a birthday or holiday without waiting until the school’s large kiln is fired. At many schools, a large kiln is fired only once a month.

New teachers inherit bags of unlabeled clay. Many ceramic firings have been ruined because the clay was fired to the wrong temperature, which disappoints students. With a test kiln, the teacher can test unlabeled clay.

Students can test glazes while they feel the momentum instead of waiting to fire them in the large kiln. A test kiln creates enthusiasm for a clay program. And a test kiln is relatively inexpensive. A glaze test kiln vastly increases students’ knowledge of glazes.

The digital controller

The Sentry Xpress 3-key controller is packed with features. It includes Cone-Fire and 8-segment Ramp-Hold modes. (Note: Ramp-Hold and Cone-Fire on the Sentry Xpress do not include some of the advanced features of the 12-key Sentry 2.0.)

Features of the Sentry Xpress 3-key Controller for Ceramic Kilns

  • Fire to a pyrometric cone by merely entering cone number and slow, medium or fast speed.
  • Program Review lets you check the program you are about to fire.
  • Program the Temperature Alarm to sound when the kiln reaches a specific temperature. Set the alarm to remind yourself to close a vented lid.
  • Design Ramp-Hold programs with up to 8 segments (steps).
  • Skip a segment in Ramp-Hold during firing without having to stop the kiln to reprogram.
  • Hold (soak) the temperature in both Cone-Fire and Ramp-Hold. Experiment with Hold to improve color saturation of china paints.
  • Control both heating and cooling in Ramp-Hold.
  • Add Hold Time during firing without having to stop the kiln to reprogram.
  • Change the target temperature in Ramp-Hold during firing without having to stop the kiln to reprogram.
  • Temperature display throughout firing and cooling in your choice of °F or °C
  • Thermocouple Offset adjusts the thermocouple readout.
  • Set the Delay to turn on the kiln later to suit your schedule.
  • Error Messages report mechanical problems such as a disconnected thermocouple, stuck relay or broken element.
  • 12 Month Warranty
  • LED Lights show whether you are in program, review, or firing mode.
  • Colorful, illustrated instruction manual. Download it from the “Additional Information” section below to review these features in more detail.

    Features of the Xpress-1193

      A heavy galvanized steel base covers the reversible brick bottom completely. It folds up under the stainless case on all sides to strengthen the firing chamber. This is one more assurance that your Paragon kiln is built to last.

    • Large enough to fire a 10” plate
    • Lock-in lid support with positive catch
    • Coated lid, peepholes & rim of firebrick
    • Heavy duty stand with mar-proof feet
    • Full-formed galvanized steel base
    • Wide-view tapered peephole
    • Fall-away Prop-R-Vent
    • Heavy duty elements
    • Cold rolled stainless jacket

    Ships by convenient UPS

    The Xpress-1193 can now ship by UPS. Enjoy lower shipping cost and faster service. Specially designed cartons and foam padding assure that the kiln will arrive safely.

    A kiln you won’t outgrow

    You will never outgrow a small kiln. If you later buy a larger kiln, continue to use the small one for testing or small projects. Perfect a new design in the small kiln before running production quantities in the large kiln. A small test kiln is invaluable in solving ceramic glaze problems and perfecting difficult glazes such as crystallines.

    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.

    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.
