Fusion-16

Glass Fusing   


Paragon Fusion-16 Glass Fusing Kiln

Paragon’s square Fusion-16 digital glass kiln operates on a 120 volt outlet. Its square firing chamber makes it ideal for fusing glass tiles.

You can also fire small glass bowls, pendants, earrings, cufflinks, and even bracelets. Try out the newest glass techniques taught in seminars and books. Enjoy making stunning dichroic glass jewelry. Make gifts that your friends will treasure. When you own a Paragon Fusion-16, you can endlessly experiment with glass fusing.

The Fusion-16 heats from the top for even heat distribution across the glass surface. The lid elements are mounted in pinless element grooves. The elements do not need pins, because the element coils are wider than the groove opening.

Optional Ceramic Fiber Top

The standard Fusion-16 comes with an insulating firebrick top. You can also upgrade your kiln with the optional deluxe ceramic fiber top, which also has pinless element grooves. The fiber top helps keep the kiln interior even cleaner. The fiber lid is a result of our search for better ways to make kilns.

Reliability at the Heart of the Kiln

The Fusion-16 has a two-year warranty. The temperature sensor, called a thermocouple, is covered with high-nickel stainless steel sheath for long life. A heavy steel base supports the reversible brick bottom. These features are extra assurance that your Paragon kiln is built to last. No extra stand is needed.

The reliable Fusion-16 has two mechanical relays for long life. (The relays turn on the heating elements after receiving a signal from the digital controller.) The two relays in the Fusion-16 last longer than the single relay of competitive kilns, because less amperage goes through the dual relays of the Fusion-16.

In addition, you can order the mercury relay upgrade for your new kiln. The mercury relays are ordinarily found only on industrial kilns. The life of the quiet, reliable mercury relay has been measured in millions of on/off cycles.

Convenient Features

For your convenience, flip the switch on the front panel to turn off power to the controller when the kiln is not in use. The large, comfortable wooden lid handle stays cool.

An 18” tall stand comes standard on the Fusion-16. This stand raises the kiln to a comfortable height for loading and operation.

The Fusion-16 control box has a durable high temperature, water-base finish. We chose water-base paint because of the low emissions during spraying. This creates a safer working environment for our employees and cuts down on pollution.

Optional Glass Window and Bead Door

Beginners and even experts love the optional high temperature 1” x 3” glass window. Watch every stage of fusing as your pieces begin to glow orange and then progress from tack fuse through full fuse. Watch the glass to fine-tune a digital program. (Always wear firing safety glasses, available from Paragon, while watching the glass through the window.)

You can even anneal glass beads with your Fusion-16. Order the optional bead door, which mounts to the front of the kiln. Use your kiln to safely cool even large, ornate beads through the annealing range.

The Ease of Digital Firing

You will be amazed at the convenience of digital firing. The reliable solid-state Sentry Xpress controller continually monitors the firing so you do not need to closely watch the kiln. (Please remember, however, to check the kiln occasionally during firing and to monitor it near the expected shutoff time.) You can try out a demonstration of the controller on your computer by clicking here.

Paragon’s compact, 3-key controller will help you achieve consistent results from one firing to the next. The controller has powerful features that you will enjoy using. Yet the controller is also user-friendly. It comes with a quick-start guide that you can hang on the wall for ready reference.

The reliable Sentry Xpress 3-key controller includes two modes: Single Speed and 8-segment Ramp-Hold. Control both heating and cooling with simple 3-key operation.

Features of the Sentry Xpress 3-key Controller on Paragon Fusion Kilns

  • Program up to 8 segments (steps) in Ramp-Hold mode.
  • Fire to a single temperature at a single speed in Single Speed mode.
  • Store up to 4 programs in Ramp-Hold mode.
  • Skip a segment in Ramp-Hold without having to stop the kiln to reprogram. (For instance, you want to skip to the annealing segment.)
  • Change the target temperature in Ramp-Hold during firing without stopping the kiln to reprogram.
  • Hold (soak) the temperature in both Single Speed and Ramp-Hold.
  • Add Hold Time during firing without having to stop the firing to reprogram.
  • Easily control both heating and cooling in Ramp-Hold.
  • Program Review lets you check the program you are about to fire.
  • Program the Temperature Alarm to sound when the kiln reaches a specific temperature. Program an alarm that will remind you to check on the kiln.
  • Temperature display throughout firing and cooling in your choice of °F or °C
  • Thermocouple Offset adjusts the thermocouple readout.
  • Set the Delay to turn on the kiln at a time that best suits your busy schedule.
  • Error Messages report mechanical problems.
