Fire porcelain, stoneware, china, ceramics, and decals in Paragon’s Caldera XL-KS. Test glazes and glaze application ideas before running production quantities in a large studio kiln.

You will never outgrow a small kiln. If you eventually buy a larger kiln, continue to use the Caldera XL-KS for testing or small projects. Carry it with you to seminars or on vacation; hand lifts on the sides aid in moving.

The Infinite Control Switch

The Caldera XL-KS operates without electronics or timers. It uses a reliable infinite control switch to adjust the heating rate. This switch has been proven for many years in Paragon kilns.

The infinite control switch contains a bi-metallic timer that cycles on and off. The higher the switch setting, the longer the heating elements stay on during each cycle. When the switch is turned to High, the heating elements stay on continuously.

The Orton Autocone Shutoff Device

The Caldera XL-KS is equipped with the Orton Kiln Sitter Autocone, a cone-activated automatic shutoff device. The Autocone is dependable and accurate when loaded and fired properly.

A small pyrometric cone placed in the Autocone bends to maturity and turns off the kiln. (A pyrometric cone is a small pyramid of clay that bends when the ware you are firing has reached maturity. Cones and ceramic materials are rated by cone number.)

Built to Last

The firebrick corners of the Caldera XL-KS are fitted together with L-shaped notches for extra strength. This type of joint lasts longer than the butted joint and the "picture frame" mitered joint found on competitive brands.

The inner and outer lid surfaces and the top rim of sidewall firebricks are hardened and sealed with a refractory coating that protects the ware from dust. The firing chamber, including the lid and bottom, is made of 3” thick firebricks, 20% thicker than standard 2 1/2” bricks. A heavy steel base supports the reversible brick bottom. No extra stand is needed.

The heating elements are made from the finest high-temperature wire available. Paragon uses heat-dissipating element connectors refined and proven over many years in our kilns. The stainless steel case and lid band include case tighteners for easy maintenance.

Water-Base Paint

The Caldera XL-KS control box is painted with a durable high temperature, water-base finish. We use water-base paint because of the low emissions during spraying. This creates a safer working environment for our employees and cuts down on pollution.
