PARAGON: Crucible Glass Furnace
The Trifecta crucible glass furnace is designed for glass blowers who make custom glass colors, blown vessels and neon tubing. It can also cast glass.
The wall-mounted digital temperature controller is connected to the furnace with 6-ft cables. The Trifecta holds three crucibles. Three 9-in. holes in the lid each include a firebrick crucible cover. Spring latches hold the lid to the kiln. Three-inch-high temperature K-25 firebrick is used throughout the kiln. The firebrick walls are wrapped with a ceramic fiber blanket, which is protected behind a stainless-steel case.
A mercury relay, which turns on the heating elements, and an S-Type platinum thermocouple are standard on the Trifecta. The separate firebrick bottom can be replaced should a crucible ever crack and spill hot glass. The bottom is attached to the furnace with four T-handle spring latches for quick removal.
