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 to Load
The Iguana is easy on the back muscles. With the 22” stand, the interior floor height is a comfortable 34 ½”.
Potters and ceramists who struggle with top-loading kilns will enjoy the Iguana. The door swings open 160 degrees 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.
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.
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.
Saves electricity with 3” firebricks
Cone 10, 2350°F
Two tapered peepholes in the side give a wide view of the interior with little heat loss.
Proportional power elements for more even heating
Heavy-gauge steel completely covers the bottom under the firebricks for extra strength.
1 ½” air gap between the switch box and kiln; electrical components stay cool and last longer
Built-in fuse protects the controller
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.
Designed for production
Paragon’s warranty is not affected by frequency of use. Fire your new kiln every day if you want, even in commercial settings. That will have no effect on the warranty period.
