Paragon Industries has released the F-130 Elite, a kiln designed to anneal 11-in.-tall glass figurines. The kiln also fuses and slumps glass and anneals glass beads. The firebrick interior is 11 in. wide, 13 in. high, and 11 in. deep. Maximum temperature is 1700°F, and the spring-assisted door opens vertically. A punty rod can extend outside the firing chamber through a secondary 2 1/2-in.-high door. Heating elements are mounted in the roof with pinless element grooves. The kiln uses the Sentry Xpress digital temperature controller, which is located in the base, and the kiln plugs into a 20 amp, 120 volt outlet.
