    The versatile Xpress-J-11 is popular for heating jewelry molds, but it can also fire Art Clay Silver, PMC, glass, and copper enameling. The kiln is made of energy efficient, light weight ceramic fiber for fast heating and cooling. The heating element is embedded in the firing chamber. Maximum temperature is 1700° F. The kiln operates on common household power.

    The inner door surface is recessed for a good fit. The door opens easily yet remains securely closed with the spring latch. The door is mounted on a heavy duty hinge shaft. As you can see, the sturdy Xpress-J-11 is built for long life.

    The Xpress-J-11 comes with a vent hole and ceramic vent hole plug in the top. Vent lost wax casting and silver clay fillers such as cork clay. The Sentry Xpress controller, located in the slotted base, stays cool for long life. Since the controls are mounted in the base, the Xpress-J-11 takes up less tabletop space than kilns that have a side-mounted switch box. No extra stand is needed. The kiln includes a power switch on the front panel. The element uses Paragon’s heat-dissipating connectors, which have been perfected over many years in Paragon kilns.

    The Xpress-J-11 is available with an optional wax tray for lost wax casting.

    If you have never used a digital controller, you will be amazed at the convenience of digital firing. The Xpress-J-11’s controller continually monitors the firing so you can spend your time productively without closely watching the kiln. The sealed touch pad keeps out dust and is easy to wipe clean.

    The Xpress-J-11’s user-friendly 3-key Sentry Xpress 3-key controller includes two firing modes: Single Speed and 8-segment Ramp-Hold. As you can see from the controller features below, you can change the program even while the kiln is firing.
