    The Paragon Dragon 24 kiln exudes power. Its 16,500 watts heat the 24” wide, 24” deep, 27” high interior to cone 10 with ample power to spare. Dropped, recessed grooves seat industrial-gauge wall and roof elements.

    **The following states have prohibited the import of Mercury Displacement Relays within their jurisdictions. You are ordering a unit that is built with MDRs as standard. In this case, the manufacturer must substitute Solid-State Relays in place of the MDRs. This is not a 1:1 swap and will require an upcharge. By ordering this unit, you acknowledge that you understand that we will contact you with the associated additional charges. CA, CT, RI, IL, NH, MA, MN, ME, VT, NY, LA, MD, WI**

    This kiln is available with Solid state relays! Please se the drop down menu for the available option. Contact us if you would like a different variation quoted.

    Exceptional element life

    The Dragon exudes power. With 16,500 watts, there is ample power to heat the 24” W x 24” D x 27” H interior to cone 10. Having power to spare improves element life, because the elements do not “struggle” to reach high temperatures. The industrial-gauge heating elements are seated and protected in dropped, recessed grooves.

    The elements are “tuned,” which means hotter elements are placed in the top and bottom of the firing chamber where more heat is needed. This results in superior heat distribution.

    The benefits of extra insulation: save energy and benefit from down firing

    Extra insulation saves energy and lengthens cooling. The 4” thick walls, top, and door are made of 3” firebrick backed by 1” of ceramic fiber block insulation. The floor is 4 ½” thick firebrick. The inner door is recessed to help seal in the heat. Because these kilns store heat so efficiently, elements last longer.

    The extra insulation not only saves energy but also cools the kiln slowly without having to turn the elements back on. This gives the micro-crystalline structure and color of the glaze sufficient time for full development. Achieve dramatic shifts in glaze color such as iron reds and enjoy the richer look of gas firing with “down firing,” or slow cooling. Create breathtaking pottery in this exciting kiln.

    Hinged switch box for easy maintenance

    The ventilated switch box is generously slotted for air circulation for the long life of the electrical components. Hinged at the bottom, the switch box opens wide for easy maintenance. Open the box in seconds by merely removing two screws at the top. A folding support arm holds the box in the open position. There is plenty of working space around electrical components. A bank of built-in NEC/UL compliant high-amperage fuses protects the kiln and circuit wiring.

    Convenient front loading

    Potters who struggle with top-loading kilns will enjoy the Janus Dragon. The door swings open wide on a heavy ¾” steel rod with sealed bearings. Two spring-loaded latches press the door tightly closed.

    Doorway Clearance

    The Dragon will fit through a 34” doorway if the handles and back element cover are temporarily removed.

    Optional colors at no extra charge
