Paragon Pearl-4426 Glass Kiln
THIS IS A DROP SHIPPED OR SPECIAL ORDER ITEM. PLEASE CONTACT OR LEAVE A NOTE IN THE COMMENTS BOX REQUESTING ESTIMATED WAIT TIME FOR SHIPPING The Pearl-4426 is a 44” x 26” x 13” glass kiln. The top lifts away to give access to the shelf area. Air pistons lighten the top. A woven rope seal mounted on all four sides of the lid acts as a gasket and cushions the top. The lid elements are protected in six quartz tubes for a cleaner kiln interior. There is less dust in the kiln, because there are no element grooves; the firebrick top is one continuous smooth surface. The quartz tubes absorb very little heat, allowing the elements to heat the firing chamber efficiently. Quartz tubes also protect the user from contact with the elements. The firing chamber includes two rows of sidewall elements, which are mounted in the upper sidewall section that lifts up when the kiln is opened. The kiln uses power ratio technology to balance the heat between the top and side elements. Program the digital controller to balance the heat between the top and sides in increments of 10%. Mercury relays are standard on this kiln. The Pearl-4426 has 3” thick firebrick sidewalls, bottom and top with a 1/2” ceramic fiber expansion joint down the center of the firebrick top and bottom. For easy maintenance, you can quickly remove the top and front sections of the control panel. The electrical parts are thoughtfully laid out for quick maintenance inside the large control panel. The control panel includes an on/off switch, two pilot lights, and the 12-key Sentry 2.0 controller.
