Paragon Iguana kiln, 240-volt 1-phase, with Sentry 12-key controller and 24" stand. Black.
The Iguana is powered with reliable extra heavy-duty elements. This results in long element life, because the elements do not “struggle” to reach high temperatures. 10,800 watts heat the 18” wide, 18” deep, 22 ½” high interior to a full cone 10.
The Iguana is easy on the back muscles. With the 24" stand, the interior floor height is a comfortable 36 inches.
Industrial-gauge elements are seated and protected in dropped, recessed firebrick grooves. The elements are easy to replace, because you can comfortably reach into the kiln.
Potters and ceramists who struggle with top-loading kilns will enjoy the Iguana. The door swings open wide on a heavy ½” steel rod with sealed bearings. A spring-loaded latch presses the door tightly closed. A recessed firebrick lip around the door seals in heat.
The Sentry digital controller is manufactured by Orton Ceramic Foundation. It is unsurpassed in reliability for a controller in its price range. It includes a programmed cool-down, Cone-Fire and Ramp-Hold modes, and is capable of accepting types K, R, or S thermocouples. A type-K thermocouple with an Inconel® sheath comes standard.
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.
For your peace of mind, the Iguana includes a safety switch that shuts off power to the controller when not in use.
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.
