Paragon Super Dragon front-loading kiln; 240-volt single-phase, with 12-key controller and mercury relays.
Paragon's Super Dragon is an industrial designed furnace for pottery and ceramic studios. The Super Dragon is powerful leading to long life because the elements will not struggle to reach high temperatures. The extra insulation saves energy and creates a slower cooling time. The heat distribution is superb due to the placement of “tuned” elements (hotter elements) placed in areas of the firing chamber that require more heat. The Super Dragon has a built-in stand (casters are unavailable on the Super Dragon).
