It is only 22 ¼” deep, yet larger inside than the 29” deep 10-sided 24-series kilns.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003eThe TnF-27-3 features sectional construction. Separate the kiln bottom and two sections to repair bricks, change elements, or to move the kiln down narrow stairwells or through the narrowest doorways. Twist-lock spring latches hold the assembled collars securely.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003eThe top row of brick in the TnF-27-3 is 2” high and without element grooves. It is less susceptible to damage during loading than a grooved brick.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003eThe massive, 12-sided Paragon digital TnF-27-3 kiln is a profit center of the busy ceramic studio. It eats up stacks of low-fire ware as well as porcelain and stoneware. It is rated to a full cone 10. At a cost per cubic foot, the TnF-27-3 is one of the most economically priced standard kilns we make.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003eDuring busy seasons when orders are backlogged, you will be grateful you own a dependable Paragon kiln. Studio owners call these kilns “real work horses.”\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003eParagon studio kilns have withstood years of abuse in school environments. High school ceramics teachers fire these kilns unmercifully, without remorse. Yet the kilns keep going. People swear by them.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003eEasy Access Switch Box\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003eHinged at the bottom, the switch box on 8, 10 \u0026amp; 12 sided TnF kilns opens forward for easy maintenance. A folding support arm holds the box in the open position. The Sentry is mounted at the top of the switch box within easy reach. Operate it from a comfortable position.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003eThe TnF-27-3 uses deluxe 3” thick firebrick throughout: in the sidewalls, the reversible brick bottom, and the 3” thick lid. The massive lid is easy to lift with Paragon's patented “LiteLid,” which does away with cumbersome pulleys and cords and reduces lid weight to only several pounds of pressure. Most people can lift the lid with one hand. Unlike pulleys and weights, the LiteLid is self-contained on the kiln. No need to drill holes in the ceiling for pulleys. The LiteLid sharply reduces wear between the lid and top rim of firebrick. The truss and floating lid allow expansion of the lid. Ask competitors if their lid spring includes a truss and floating lid.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003eThe 24” wide stand for the TnF-27-3 kiln supports the brick bottom with framing that is 4 ½” wide across the top of each side. The stand is rock-steady, with 16-gauge frame and heavy 12-gauge legs.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003eIf you move your kiln out of the way when not in use, order an optional deluxe kiln stand with steel casters.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003eA 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.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003eYou will be amazed at the convenience of digital firing. The reliable solid-state \u003ca href=\"http:\/\/www.paragonweb.com\/Sentry_Digital_12-key_Ceramics.cfm\"\u003eSentry\u003c\/a\u003e 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.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003eThe controller has powerful features that you will enjoy using. Yet we have also worked hard to make the controller user-friendly.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003eDo 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.

Paragon TnF-27-3

The TnF-27-3 is easier to load than the deeper studio kilns. It is only 22 ¼” deep, yet larger inside than the 29” deep 10-sided 24-series kilns.

The TnF-27-3 features sectional construction. Separate the kiln bottom and two sections to repair bricks, change elements, or to move the kiln down narrow stairwells or through the narrowest doorways. Twist-lock spring latches hold the assembled collars securely.

The top row of brick in the TnF-27-3 is 2” high and without element grooves. It is less susceptible to damage during loading than a grooved brick.

The massive, 12-sided Paragon digital TnF-27-3 kiln is a profit center of the busy ceramic studio. It eats up stacks of low-fire ware as well as porcelain and stoneware. It is rated to a full cone 10. At a cost per cubic foot, the TnF-27-3 is one of the most economically priced standard kilns we make.

During busy seasons when orders are backlogged, you will be grateful you own a dependable Paragon kiln. Studio owners call these kilns “real work horses.”

Paragon studio kilns have withstood years of abuse in school environments. High school ceramics teachers fire these kilns unmercifully, without remorse. Yet the kilns keep going. People swear by them.

Easy Access Switch Box

Hinged at the bottom, the switch box on 8, 10 & 12 sided TnF kilns opens forward for easy maintenance. A folding support arm holds the box in the open position. The Sentry is mounted at the top of the switch box within easy reach. Operate it from a comfortable position.

The TnF-27-3 uses deluxe 3” thick firebrick throughout: in the sidewalls, the reversible brick bottom, and the 3” thick lid. The massive lid is easy to lift with Paragon's patented “LiteLid,” which does away with cumbersome pulleys and cords and reduces lid weight to only several pounds of pressure. Most people can lift the lid with one hand. Unlike pulleys and weights, the LiteLid is self-contained on the kiln. No need to drill holes in the ceiling for pulleys. The LiteLid sharply reduces wear between the lid and top rim of firebrick. The truss and floating lid allow expansion of the lid. Ask competitors if their lid spring includes a truss and floating lid.

The 24” wide stand for the TnF-27-3 kiln supports the brick bottom with framing that is 4 ½” wide across the top of each side. The stand is rock-steady, with 16-gauge frame and heavy 12-gauge legs.

If you move your kiln out of the way when not in use, order an optional deluxe kiln stand with steel casters.

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.

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.

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.

Auxiliary Port for Orton Vent-Master Auxiliary Port for Orton Vent-Master
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.
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.
FREE Deluxe 24 inch Rolling Stand FREE Deluxe 24 inch Rolling Stand
Paragon 7-, 8-, 10-, and 12-sided top-loading ceramic and glass kilns now come with a deluxe rolling stand at no extra charge. The new stand has locking casters, a mounting bracket for the Orton Kiln Vent, and a greenware drying rack. You will enjoy the convenience of effortlessly moving the kiln out of the way when not in use.
The ceramic kiln deluxe stands are 12” high, and the glass kiln deluxe stands are 18” high. The stands include assembly instructions. The deluxe stand replaces the discontinued standard kiln stand.
The discontinued stands had four legs, four horizontal side pieces across the top, and plastic feet. The new stand has two side frames, two shelves, and four locking casters. The Ovation oval kilns will receive two stands per kiln.
The new stands slide together with slots that line up the screw holes. To install an Orton Kiln Vent, slide the collection cup into the vent bracket. The new stand eliminates the need for the collection cup mounting bolt.
Take advantage of the heat that radiates from the kiln. Load greenware on the lower shelf. Heat from the kiln will dry the ware and prepare it for the next firing. Save the time and expense of drying the ware inside the kiln.
