The size is ideal for teachers of china paint or dolls. The 8-sided, 16 ½” wide and 13 ¼” deep interior is as tall as standard 7-sided kilns. The TnF-1613-3 kiln is 43% larger than the 66-3 series, yet costs only a few dollars more.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003eThe TnF-1613-3 plugs into a 30 amp, 240 volt outlet. (The kiln is also available for international electrical systems.) It uses 6400 watts of power, more watts per cubic foot than conventional kilns. The extra wattage helps compensate for aging elements or low voltage. This extra power is ample for cone 10 and, if desired, rapid heating. Elements last longer, because the extra wattage and thicker 3\" firebricks help the elements reach porcelain temperatures without strain.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003eFeatures of the TnF-1613-3\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cul\u003e \u003cli\u003eLong-life electrical system\u003c\/li\u003e \u003cli\u003eLock-in lid support with a positive catch\u003c\/li\u003e \u003cli\u003eWide-view tapered peepholes\u003c\/li\u003e \u003cli\u003eVentilated, louvered switch box\u003c\/li\u003e \u003cli\u003eTwo hand lifts\u003c\/li\u003e \u003cli\u003eHeavy duty kiln stand with mar-proof plastic feet accommodates optional Orton KilnVent\u003c\/li\u003e \u003cli\u003eFull-formed, galvanized steel base\u003c\/li\u003e \u003cli\u003eFall-away two stage Prop-R-Vent\u003c\/li\u003e \u003cli\u003eCoated lid, peepholes and rim of firebricks\u003c\/li\u003e \u003cli\u003eOperating instructions on switch box\u003c\/li\u003e \u003cli\u003eHeavy gauge stainless steel case\u003c\/li\u003e \u003cli\u003eFull firing capacity: fire ware directly on the brick bottom\u003c\/li\u003e \u003cli\u003eReversible brick bottom\u003c\/li\u003e \u003cli\u003eDropped, recessed brick grooves, which eliminate element pins\u003c\/li\u003e \u003c\/ul\u003e \u003cp\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eDesigned for production\u003c\/strong\u003e \u003cbr\u003eParagon’s warranty is not affected by frequency of use.

The upgrade price is only for a Sentinel ordered with a new kiln. 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. Store 12 custom programs with up to 32 segments per program. The Sentinel includes Novice Mode, which adds questions to guide you during programming. The controller can be updated through WiFi. View the progress of a firing in graph mode. The firing schedule can be edited during firing with Skip Step, Add Segments, Add Temperature, and Add Time. The Sentinel can turn a kiln vent or gas injection flow meter on or off for each segment of a program.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv id=\"col1\"\u003e\u003cimg style=\"float: left; margin: 5px; border: 1px solid black;\" title=\"Lid or Door Safety Switch\" alt=\"Lid or Door Safety Switch\" src=\"http:\/\/www.kilnparts.com\/kps_images\/Paragon\/paragon_lid_safety.jpg\" height=\"125\" width=\"125\"\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv id=\"col2\"\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"font-size: medium;\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eLid or Door Safety Switch\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe optional lid or door safety switch turns off power to the heating elements when the lid is raised or door is opened.

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.

Paragon TnF-1613-3

The TnF-1613-3 3" wall kiln is designed for porcelain, so it easily fires ceramics, china paint, decals and gold. The size is ideal for teachers of china paint or dolls. The 8-sided, 16 ½” wide and 13 ¼” deep interior is as tall as standard 7-sided kilns. The TnF-1613-3 kiln is 43% larger than the 66-3 series, yet costs only a few dollars more.

The TnF-1613-3 plugs into a 30 amp, 240 volt outlet. (The kiln is also available for international electrical systems.) It uses 6400 watts of power, more watts per cubic foot than conventional kilns. The extra wattage helps compensate for aging elements or low voltage. This extra power is ample for cone 10 and, if desired, rapid heating. Elements last longer, because the extra wattage and thicker 3" firebricks help the elements reach porcelain temperatures without strain.

Features of the TnF-1613-3

  • Long-life electrical system
  • Lock-in lid support with a positive catch
  • Wide-view tapered peepholes
  • Ventilated, louvered switch box
  • Two hand lifts
  • Heavy duty kiln stand with mar-proof plastic feet accommodates optional Orton KilnVent
  • Full-formed, galvanized steel base
  • Fall-away two stage Prop-R-Vent
  • Coated lid, peepholes and rim of firebricks
  • Operating instructions on switch box
  • Heavy gauge stainless steel case
  • Full firing capacity: fire ware directly on the brick bottom
  • Reversible brick bottom
  • Dropped, recessed brick grooves, which eliminate element pins

Options and Accessories

Furniture Kit
Recommended furniture kit for the Paragon Janus-1613, Xpress-1613-3, TnF-1613, and equivalent sized kilns. Included:
2 C-18 Shelves (15” round x 5/8”)
1 C-18 Half Shelf (15” round x 5/8” half)
1" Square Posts, 3 each – 1/2”, 1”, 2”, 3”, 4”, 6”
1 lb. Bag Kiln Wash
Shipping size: 19” long x 18” wide x 7” high
Ware is fired on shelves that are separated by posts so you can fire multiple layers of ware in your kiln. Coat the shelves with kiln wash, which prevents glaze or glass from sticking to the shelves.

 

Sentinel Controller optional on new kilns with a Sentry Controller Sentinel Controller optional on new kilns with a Sentry Controller
This kiln can be ordered with the optional Sentinel Smart Touch controller instead of the standard Sentry 2.0 12-key controller. The upgrade price is only for a Sentinel ordered with a new kiln. The Sentinel is available as an option on any Paragon kiln that comes with the 12-key Sentry controller.

The 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.

Ramp-Hold programs can have a customized program title, which is entered through a touch screen. Store 12 custom programs with up to 32 segments per program. The Sentinel includes Novice Mode, which adds questions to guide you during programming. The controller can be updated through WiFi. View the progress of a firing in graph mode. The firing schedule can be edited during firing with Skip Step, Add Segments, Add Temperature, and Add Time. The Sentinel can turn a kiln vent or gas injection flow meter on or off for each segment of a program.

Lid or Door Safety Switch Lid or Door Safety Switch
The optional lid or door safety switch turns off power to the heating elements when the lid is raised or door is opened. The controller remains powered. The switch turns the power to the elements back on when the lid is closed. The switch mounts to the back of the lid or front of the door. IMPORTANT: The lid or door safety switch is required in some areas such as Canada and Europe.
  Orton Ventmaster, Not Installed Orton Ventmaster, Not Installed KILNVENT MASTER 120V M9 VENT MASTER (Installed after the kiln is set up) The patented Orton Vent Master not only vents fumes but also improves firing results.

It pulls fresh oxygen into the kiln for brighter colors, especially noticeable with red and orange glazes and decals. 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.

The 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.

The 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.

The 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.

From 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.

As 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.

Order 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”.

The Vent Master requires a separate 120 volt wall plug unless your kiln is equipped with the AOP vent.

A 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.)

Position 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. For the second kiln, order the Vent Master Expansion Kit.

AUXILLARY OUTPUT FOR SENTRY II CONTROLLERS (VENT CONTROL) The AOP (Auxiliary Output) is an electrical outlet mounted to the kiln. Plug either a downdraft vent or an external alarm into the AOP. Control the vent with Cone-Fire or Ramp-Hold modes.
