Paragon Xpress-J-14-2

The digital Xpress-J-14-2 is popular for heating jewelry molds. The kiln is made of ceramic fiber for fast heating and cooling. The digital controller yields consistent quality jewelry molds. It is a real time-saver. Set the controller and spend your time working on jewelry instead of monitoring the kiln. The Xpress-J-14-2 operates on 240 volts. Maximum temperature is 1700° F.

The firing chamber is a one-piece ceramic fiber shell with embedded elements. For greater thermal efficiency, the space between the steel case and the ceramic fiber shell is filled with extra ceramic fiber insulation.

The Xpress-J-14-2 comes with a vent hole and steel cover in the top and door. The door seals tightly with a heavy spring latch. The controls, located in the base, stay cool for long life. No extra stand is needed.

The Xpress-J-14-2 is available with an optional wax tray for lost wax casting.

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.

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. Learn to conserve energy by experimenting with firing speed, load density, etc.

Options and Accessories

Furniture
Recommended furniture kit for the Paragon J-14 series, E-14 series, and equivalent sized kilns. Included:
1 – C-12 Shelf (12” square x 5/8”)
4 – 1/2” long, 1” wide Square Posts
1 lb. Bag Glass Separator
Shipping Weight: 13.00 Lbs.   ( 5.90 Kg.)

Glass is fired in the kiln on a shelf. Coat the shelf with glass separator to prevent the glass from sticking to the shelf. Place short posts between the shelf and the kiln bottom to circulate heat around the shelf.

Paragon’s durable cordierite shelves resist warpage and thermal shock. They are volume-stable. (Note: The photo shows a general assortment of furniture rather than the exact contents of this shelf kit.)

 

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.

PC Control Port for Sentry 2 PC Control Port for Sentry 2
RS232 PORT ON SENTRY 2 CONTROLLERS (PC CONTROL) The RS232 is a computer port mounted to the kiln. You can monitor the kiln from a computer and store a record of each firing on your hard drive. Print graphs of firings.
Sentry 12 Key Controller Upgrade Sentry 12 Key Controller Upgrade
This kiln can be ordered with the optional Sentry 12-key controller instead of the standard Sentry Xpress 3-key controller. The upgrade price is only for a Sentry 12-key ordered with a new kiln.
Controller Comparison
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.)
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. (Programs remain in storage even when the kiln is unplugged.)
Program Storage, 12-key Sentry: one 20-segment and eight 10-segment programs
Program Storage, 3-key Sentry Xpress: four custom programs, 8 segments (steps) each
General Features That are Unique to the 12-key Sentry
Firing Cost: Enter your cost of electricity and the kilowatts used by your 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.
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.
Stop/Back Key goes back one step with each key press during programming to correct errors.
Add Time Key adds five minutes to a temperature hold with each key press during firing. Helpful for glass with holds.
Thermocouple Selection: The 12-key Sentry can operate types K, S or R thermocouples.
Program Safety Lock for the program in active memory gives you peace of mind.
