Paragon Ovation-10 Glass Fusing Kiln
The glistening Ovation-10 will inspire you to make glass. It is rugged, reliable, and designed to last. Enjoy fusing, slumping, pate de verre, and painting in this large production kiln.
If you have been firing a smaller kiln, you will be amazed at the space inside the Ovation-10. Fire several large projects such as bowls or platters in one load.
Dual spring-assisted lid supports transfer the weight of the lid to a massive hinge assembly on the back of the kiln. This reduces the stress on the kiln wall to give your kiln the long life that Paragon kilns are famous for.
The Ovation-10 lid elements use an element groove that eliminates element pins. The element coils are wider than the groove opening, so the elements stay in place without pins. The sidewall element coils are protected in dropped, recessed grooves.
- 3”-thick firebricks in the walls, top and floor for solid construction and slow natural cooling
- Heating elements in top mounted in pinless grooves
- Heating elements in the lower sidewalls
- Lock-in lid support
- Full-formed galvanized steel base for extra strength
- Two front tapered peepholes with plugs for a wide view
Thermocouple with “special limit” wire
The thermocouple senses temperature inside the kiln. It is the small rod that extends into the firing chamber. The ¼” wide Type-K, 14-gauge, exposed-tip thermocouple is made with special-limit wire for superior accuracy. The exposed tip gives the controller a fast response time for even temperatures during holds. The thermocouple is made in America to our exacting standards.
Kiln Comes with Two Heavy Duty Rolling Stands, 24” Square x 18” High
Two deluxe kiln stands with locking casters are included with the kiln. Enjoy the convenience of rolling the kiln out of the way when it is not in use. The 18” tall stands raise the kiln to a convenient height for loading and unloading. Should you need a vent, merely slide the collection cup of an Orton vent into a mounting bracket on the top of one of the stands.
The stands have solid tops to support the firebrick bottom of your kiln from edge to edge. They fit together with interlocking components that assemble with one size of bolt. (Stands ship unassembled.)
