Small glass pieces can be fired and cooled to room temperature in only 30 to 40 minutes. Small ceramic pieces take only 40 to 50 minutes.

I put together 80 pairs of earrings after the verification. If I had just taken a chance and not done a test, it could have been a very expensive mistake, because I would have not oriented the pieces properly on my forms and not gotten a bend.\"\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cspan class=\"bodyText\"\u003eDemonstrate the QuikFire to your family and watch their astounded reaction.

Instead of risking a good piece of greenware on an untried technique, you can fire throw-away clay scraps and view the results in minutes.

It measures 6\" x 6\" x 6\" inside. The shell rests on a ceramic fiber base with steel stand. The QuikFire is rated to 2000°F. It fires on 120 volts and needs no other heating source. At only 1560 watts, it uses less power than many hair driers.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cspan class=\"bodyText\"\u003eTo see how your work is progressing, tilt the shell up an inch for several seconds.

The Sentinel is available as an option on any Paragon kiln that comes with the 12-key Sentry controller.\n\u003cp\u003eThe new controller is made by Bartlett Instruments of Fort Madison, Iowa. New Paragon kilns equipped with the Sentinel give a continuous amperage and circuit voltage readout during firings. This is to inform the kiln user of voltage drops during times of heavy electrical demand, such as hot summers. The amperage reading indicates when the elements are beginning to wear.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eRamp-Hold programs can have a customized program title, which is entered through a touch screen.

Fire red and green glazes in the same load without glaze contamination. The Vent Master draws air from the kiln, dilutes it with room air, and pushes it outdoors through a vent hose.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe Vent Master removes fumes containing volatile metals, fluorides and sulphur oxides. You can fire even lusters, decals, metallics, and pate-de-verre glass without strong odor.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe flow of fresh air helps even out the temperature throughout the kiln. The vent also extends the life of the Kiln Sitter tube assembly, since fumes by-pass the tube. You will enjoy the convenience of the Vent Master. Throughout the firing, keep the lid closed and peephole plugs inserted. You no longer need to remember to lower the hot lid from vented position.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe Vent Master increases firing time by about five minutes for firings up to cone 4; 12 minutes for firings from cone 4 to 10. It has little effect on maximum temperature. At 132 watts, electrical consumption of the Vent Master motor is only pennies per firing.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eFrom the shut-off temperature down to 1000°F, the Vent Master has little effect on cooling time. From 1000°F to room temperature, it reduces cooling time by about two hours.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAs with Paragon kilns, the Orton Vent Master can be made for any electrical system in the world. Approved for use in the 1992 Uniform Mechanical Code. UL\/CSA approved for UL Listed kilns. ETL Listed, CE Certified. Two year limited warranty.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eOrder a kiln with the Vent Master and we will drill all necessary holes at no extra charge. (Please note: kilns in stock will not be uncrated to drill the holes.) The holes are only ¼”.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe Vent Master requires a separate 120 volt wall plug unless your kiln is equipped with the AOP vent.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eA 3’ long 2” duct comes with each vent. The 2” duct runs between the collection cup and the blower motor. Use 4” aluminum dryer duct or 4” PVC pipe between the motor and the vent outlet. (Do not use vinyl dryer duct.)\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003ePosition the Vent Master next to the kiln and attach the collection cup to the bottom or side of the kiln. The collection cup fits under most top-loading kilns. (Note: The kiln stand must be at least 5” high to accommodate the collection cup.) Since the vent motor is away from the kiln, there is no vibration in the kiln, the motor is kept away from the heat of the kiln, and the fan is easy to clean. The Vent Master works with all Paragon kilns except the smallest tabletop models. The Vent Master can vent two kilns.

Fire red and green glazes in the same load without glaze contamination. The Vent Master draws air from the kiln, dilutes it with room air, and pushes it outdoors through a vent hose.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe Vent Master removes fumes containing volatile metals, fluorides and sulphur oxides. You can fire even lusters, decals, metallics, and pate-de-verre glass without strong odor.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe flow of fresh air helps even out the temperature throughout the kiln. The vent also extends the life of the Kiln Sitter tube assembly, since fumes by-pass the tube. You will enjoy the convenience of the Vent Master. Throughout the firing, keep the lid closed and peephole plugs inserted. You no longer need to remember to lower the hot lid from vented position.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe Vent Master increases firing time by about five minutes for firings up to cone 4; 12 minutes for firings from cone 4 to 10. It has little effect on maximum temperature. At 132 watts, electrical consumption of the Vent Master motor is only pennies per firing.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eFrom the shut-off temperature down to 1000°F, the Vent Master has little effect on cooling time. From 1000°F to room temperature, it reduces cooling time by about two hours.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAs with Paragon kilns, the Orton Vent Master can be made for any electrical system in the world. Approved for use in the 1992 Uniform Mechanical Code. UL\/CSA approved for UL Listed kilns. ETL Listed, CE Certified. Two year limited warranty.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eOrder a kiln with the Vent Master and we will drill all necessary holes at no extra charge. (Please note: kilns in stock will not be uncrated to drill the holes.) The holes are only ¼”.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe Vent Master requires a separate 120 volt wall plug unless your kiln is equipped with the AOP vent.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eA 3’ long 2” duct comes with each vent. The 2” duct runs between the collection cup and the blower motor. Use 4” aluminum dryer duct or 4” PVC pipe between the motor and the vent outlet. (Do not use vinyl dryer duct.)\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003ePosition the Vent Master next to the kiln and attach the collection cup to the bottom or side of the kiln. The collection cup fits under most top-loading kilns. (Note: The kiln stand must be at least 5” high to accommodate the collection cup.) Since the vent motor is away from the kiln, there is no vibration in the kiln, the motor is kept away from the heat of the kiln, and the fan is easy to clean. The Vent Master works with all Paragon kilns except the smallest tabletop models. The Vent Master can vent two kilns.

The upgrade price is only for a Sentry 12-key ordered with a new kiln. \u003cbr\u003e Controller Comparison \u003cbr\u003e Because you can type numbers into the 12-key Sentry, it is faster to program than the 3-key. (Numbers are programmed into the 3-key Sentry Xpress by scrolling up or down with arrow keys.) \u003cbr\u003e Ramp-Hold programs are divided into segments. Each segment has a target temperature, firing rate, and, if desired, a temperature hold. Hold (soak) maintains a specific temperature.

At the end of a firing, the controller will give the cost of electricity to fire that load. Find out how little a kiln actually costs to fire. Learn to conserve energy by experimenting with firing speed, load density, etc. \u003cbr\u003e AOP Vent: The “Auxiliary Output” is available on most Paragon kilns that have the 12-key Sentry. The AOP is a relay-powered electrical receptacle mounted to the kiln. You can plug an Orton Vent Master into the AOP to control when the vent operates during firing. \u003cbr\u003e Stop\/Back Key goes back one step with each key press during programming to correct errors. \u003cbr\u003e Add Time Key adds five minutes to a temperature hold with each key press during firing. Helpful for glass with holds. \u003cbr\u003e Thermocouple Selection: The 12-key Sentry can operate types K, S or R thermocouples. \u003cbr\u003e Program Safety Lock for the program in active memory gives you peace of mind.\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv id=\"col1\"\u003e\u003cimg style=\"float: left; margin: 5px; border: 1px solid black;\" title=\"Mercury Relay Upgrade TF-26\" alt=\"Mercury Relay Upgrade TF-26\" src=\"http:\/\/www.kilnparts.com\/kps_images\/Paragon\/paragon_tf26_merc.jpg\" height=\"125\" width=\"125\"\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv id=\"col2\"\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"font-size: medium;\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eMercury Relay Upgrade TF-26\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003eOrder your new kiln with the factory installed mercury relay upgrade.

Perfecting colors for larger work is faster and cheaper in a small test kiln than in a large kiln. Test glazes while you feel the momentum instead of when you have enough ware to fill your large kiln.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eAn Excellent Classroom Kiln\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cbr\u003eBecause new teachers often inherit bags of unlabeled clay, many kiln loads have been ruined because the clay was fired to the wrong temperature. With your own classroom test kiln, you can fire small clay samples to determine the correct temperature. Your students can make gifts in time for a birthday or holiday instead of when the school’s large kiln is available.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eTeachers are delighted to find that the FireFly Digital is relatively inexpensive. The kiln creates enthusiasm for the clay program, because students see their test results right away. And testing in a small kiln will vastly increase your students’ knowledge of glazes.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eGood Choice for Beginners\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe Paragon FireFly Digital fires rapidly with a digital Sentry Xpress controller at the precise rate and temperature you choose. The controller stores up to 4 custom programs in memory. The display shows the kiln temperature throughout firing and cooling in your choice of °F or °C. Program up to 8 segments, or steps, per firing. Duplicate the firing schedule of your large kiln. If you know the natural cooling rate of your large kiln, you can even program that cooling rate in the FireFly Digital.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eYou will never outgrow a small kiln. If you later buy a larger one, continue to use the small one for testing or small projects. A small test kiln is invaluable in solving ceramic glaze problems.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eThe Kiln Addiction\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe heat of the kiln is magical and offers wonderful surprises. Stained glass, enamels, and ceramic glazes undergo a complete transformation in the kiln. Opening a kiln to view your treasures is a festive moment that you will never outgrow no matter how much experience you gain.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe firing results will thrill you. Create breathtaking glass bracelets and pendants in the 8\" square x 4 1\/2\" high interior. Fire small glass casting molds and even drop molds. But you are not limited to glass. Fire porcelain or stoneware pendants and beads. Test glazes. The kiln has plenty of power to reach 2350°F (1287°C).\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eL-Shaped Notches Strengthen the Firing Chamber\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe Paragon FireFly Digital is made of durable 2 1\/2\" thick insulating firebrick, which stores heat for slow cooling and safe annealing of smaller glass projects. The solid 2 1\/2\" thick firebrick top and bottom help seal in the heat.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe hinged lid is self-adjusting to compensate for expansion at high temperatures. The hinge includes a stop that holds the lid open and out of the way. Lift the lid with a handle on the front or a separate handle on the side.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eTo strengthen the firing chamber, the firebrick corners are fitted together with L-shaped notches. This type of joint lasts longer than the butted joint and the \"picture frame\" mitered joint found on competitive brands.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eLong-Lasting Elements and Thermocouple\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cbr\u003eDropped, recessed grooves protect the replaceable heating elements for longer life. Wires are fastened to the elements with heat-dissipating connectors refined and proven for decades in Paragon kilns. Rugged construction makes this little kiln a workhorse.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThis kiln is built to last. Elements are coiled from the finest high-temperature wire available. The thermocouple, which senses the firing chamber temperature, is protected with a high-nickel stainless steel sheath for long life.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eWatch the Interior Through the Optional Glass Window\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cbr\u003eYou can order the FireFly Digital with an optional glass window in the top. The glass window is rated to 2300°F (1260°C), so it can easily withstand glass-fusing temperatures. Please note, however, that the window reduces the kiln’s maximum temperature to approximately 2100°F (1148°C) and is meant for glass fusing. (You can still fire porcelain and stoneware even with the window, but you will need to plug the window with ceramic fiber.)\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eDurable Paint\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe FireFly Digital switchbox is coated with a durable high temperature, water-base finish. We chose this type of paint because of the low emissions during spraying. This creates a safer working environment for our employees and cuts down on pollution.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eBuilt-in Stand, Long-Lasting Electrical Parts\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cbr\u003eA built-in 2 3\/4\" tall steel base with mar-proof rubber feet covers the entire firebrick bottom. Place the kiln directly onto a heat-resistant work surface. No extra stand is needed.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eA stainless steel heat shield inside the switch box protects wiring from contact with the case. Costly nickel-plated copper wiring is covered with high temperature glass-braided insulation. Slots on the top, side, and bottom of the switch box circulate air for the long life of the electrical components. In addition, Paragon kilns go through a 15-step quality control inspection.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eMade in the USA\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe FireFly Digital is proudly made in Mesquite, Texas by skilled craftspeople.

Your students can make gifts in time for a birthday or holiday instead of when the school’s large kiln is available.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eTeachers are delighted to find that the FireFly Digital is relatively inexpensive. The kiln creates enthusiasm for the clay program, because students see their test results right away.

The controller stores up to 4 custom programs in memory. The display shows the kiln temperature throughout firing and cooling in your choice of °F or °C. Program up to 8 segments, or steps, per firing. Duplicate the firing schedule of your large kiln. If you know the natural cooling rate of your large kiln, you can even program that cooling rate in the FireFly Digital.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eYou will never outgrow a small kiln.

Opening a kiln to view your treasures is a festive moment that you will never outgrow no matter how much experience you gain.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe firing results will thrill you. Create breathtaking glass bracelets and pendants in the 8\" square x 4 1\/2\" high interior. Fire small glass casting molds and even drop molds. But you are not limited to glass. Fire porcelain or stoneware pendants and beads. Test glazes. The kiln has plenty of power to reach 2350°F (1287°C).\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eL-Shaped Notches Strengthen the Firing Chamber\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe Paragon FireFly Digital is made of durable 2 1\/2\" thick insulating firebrick, which stores heat for slow cooling and safe annealing of smaller glass projects.

The glass window is rated to 2300°F (1260°C), so it can easily withstand glass-fusing temperatures. Please note, however, that the window reduces the kiln’s maximum temperature to approximately 2100°F (1148°C) and is meant for glass fusing. (You can still fire porcelain and stoneware even with the window, but you will need to plug the window with ceramic fiber.)\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eDurable Paint\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe FireFly Digital switchbox is coated with a durable high temperature, water-base finish.

At the end of a firing, the controller will give the cost of electricity to fire that load. Find out how little a kiln actually costs to fire. Learn to conserve energy by experimenting with firing speed, load density, etc. \u003cbr\u003e AOP Vent: The “Auxiliary Output” is available on most Paragon kilns that have the 12-key Sentry. The AOP is a relay-powered electrical receptacle mounted to the kiln.

At the end of a firing, the controller will give the cost of electricity to fire that load. Find out how little a kiln actually costs to fire. Learn to conserve energy by experimenting with firing speed, load density, etc. \u003cbr\u003e AOP Vent: The “Auxiliary Output” is available on most Paragon kilns that have the 12-key Sentry. The AOP is a relay-powered electrical receptacle mounted to the kiln. You can plug an Orton Vent Master into the AOP to control when the vent operates during firing. \u003cbr\u003e Stop\/Back Key goes back one step with each key press during programming to correct errors. \u003cbr\u003e Add Time Key adds five minutes to a temperature hold with each key press during firing. Helpful for glass with holds. \u003cbr\u003e Thermocouple Selection: The 12-key Sentry can operate types K, S or R thermocouples. \u003cbr\u003e Program Safety Lock for the program in active memory gives you peace of mind.\u003c\/div\u003e"}
