    The Super Dragon is an industrial furnace designed for pottery and ceramic studios. And considering its features, it is surprisingly affordable.

    The Super Dragon exudes power. Its 21,600 watts heat the 27” wide, 27” deep, 36” high interior to cone 10 with ample power to spare. This results in long element life, because the elements do not “struggle” to reach high temperatures. Dropped, recessed grooves seat industrial-gauge elements.

    Extra insulation saves energy and lengthens cooling. The 4” thick walls, top and door are made of 3” firebrick backed by 1” of ceramic fiber block insulation. The floor is 4 ½” thick firebrick. The extra insulation not only saves energy but also cools the kiln slowly without having to turn the elements back on. This gives the micro-crystalline structure and color of the glaze sufficient time for full development. Cool slowly to achieve dramatic shifts in glaze color such as iron reds and enjoy the richer look of gas firing. Create breathtaking pottery in the exciting Super Dragon.

    The elements are “tuned,” which means hotter elements are placed in areas of the firing chamber that need more heat. This results in superior heat distribution.

    The Sentry 2.0 digital controller is standard on Paragon front-loading pottery kilns. Results are repeatable from one firing to the next with astounding accuracy. The solid-state controller continually monitors the firing. This is almost like hiring an assistant.

    Do you ever wonder how much electricity your kiln uses? The digital controller will figure this for you; merely program the kiln’s wattage and your cost of electricity into the controller. Learn to conserve energy by experimenting with firing speed, load density, etc.

    The Type-K thermocouple, hermetically sealed for accuracy, is standard. We also recommend the optional Type-S for stoneware and porcelain.

    Long-lasting mercury relays power the elements. A bank of built-in NEC/UL compliant high-amperage fuses protects the kiln and circuit wiring. Potters who struggle with top-loading kilns will enjoy the Super Dragon. The door swings open wide on a heavy hinges with sealed bearings. The Super Dragon has a floating door system with four spring door latches. The door hinge is fastened to a 2” tubular steel frame that extends from the floor to the top of the kiln. The latches press the door tightly closed.

    The ventilated switch box is generously louvered for air circulation for the long life of the electrical components. Yet dust is kept to a minimum.

    The stand is built into the Super Dragon and comes at no extra charge. (Note: Casters are not available for the Super Dragon.)

    Doorway Clearance

    The Super Dragon will fit through a 42” doorway.

    Order the optional Orton Vent Master, which mounts to the back of the kiln. (Note: Door elements and stainless steel finish are not available on the Super Dragon.)

    The Furniture Kit

    The furniture kit consists of carefully selected fireclay shelves and posts for this particular model. When estimating the price of the kiln, include the cost of furniture. The furniture allows you to stack multiple layers of ware. Without it, you could fire only the ware that would fit on the kiln bottom.
