Item #: PXE12A12
Paragon Xpress-E-12A, 120-volt, standard model.
Create breathtaking jewelry or small keepsakes in silver clay, enameling, china painting, glass, lost wax casting, or bronze clay with Paragon's digitally-controlled Xpress E-12A. Imagine the glass you could slag, slump, and fuse with this kiln. Make small bowls, pendants, earrings, cufflinks, and even bracelets. Enjoy the glittering beauty of dichroics. Since the kiln opens from the front, it is ideal for copper enameling. This kiln will give you years of creative enjoyment!
The Xpress E-12A comes equipped with Paragon's Sentry 3-key kiln controller, which is packed with features. It includes two modes: Single Speed and 8-segment Ramp-Hold. With just three simple keys, you will be amazed at how much control you have over this kiln. This kiln controller is mounted onto the kiln's base, as opposed to being mounted on a side switch box, to save table space in your studio or classroom. The kiln includes a door safety switch that turns off the element when the door is opened. The controller automatically resumes firing when you close the door. The digital Xpress-E-12A fires to 2000°F (1093°C), or Cone 03.
The Xpress-E-12A heating element, which is exposed in recessed and insulated firebrick grooves, is easy to replace if necessary. The 2.5" thick firebricks store plenty of heat for slow cooling through the glass annealing range. For small glass pieces (such as jewelry), you can anneal without having to turn the element back on during cooling. If extra heat is necessary for annealing larger pieces, that's easy, too - just program a slow cooling segment in Ramp-Hold mode. The kiln's thermocouple is protected with a high nickel-stainless steel sheath for a long life. No extra stand is needed for this kiln - the built-in base stays cool, even during extended time holds.
The Xpress-E-12A features a vent hole in the top, complete with a tapered vent plug, is designed for lost-wax casting. You can also vent combustible cork clay and other fillers used with silver clay with this feature.
