Paragon: Multi-Purpose Kiln

Paragon recently introduced a digital top-loading firebrick kiln called the Janus-1613, which is designed to fire both glass and pottery. It has heating elements in the top and sides. The element in the lid uses a new element groove that eliminates element pins, and the sidewall elements are seated in dropped, recessed grooves. Users can choose between glass and ceramic firing with a toggle switch. In the glass position, heat comes from the top element and one sidewall element. In the ceramic position, heat comes from all six rows of sidewall elements, while the lid element remains off. The Janus-1613 uses the Sentry digital temperature controller manufactured by the Orton Ceramic Foundation for Paragon.
