The Bluebird safely anneal glass beads to prevent breakage during cooling with the The BlueBird Paragon Kiln. This USA made kiln opens doorways of opportunity in beadmaking. Enjoy a full 510mm of width with the 50mm tall, 255mm wide double doors. This kiln is also ideal for busy teachers because it is like having two kilns instead of one.
The BlueBird Paragon Kiln features high-tech ceramic fibre insulation in the roof, walls and floor. The element is embedded in the roof between layers of ceramic fibre board to reduce dust.Paragon have added exciting new performance-enhancing features to the BlueBird, such as the stainless steel glass rod warmer on top of the kiln. Pre-heating glass rods saves production time. This is a true high performance kiln.
Insert bead mandrels into the kiln. The mandrel ends rest outside the kiln on 76mm-deep slotted stainless steel mandrel holders, cradled at two points. Adjust the height of the mandrel holders by loosening the screws underneath.
Side latches hold the doors closed while the kiln is heating to annealing temperature. Phenolic knobs stay cool to the touch. Rare-earth magnets hold the doors open when needed. A safety switch on the front panel turns off power to the controller when the kiln is not in use.
To save table space the Sentry Xpress digital controller is now mounted under the kiln in an ergonomic, sloped panel for easy operation. The built-in base stays cool even during extended hold times. It is slotted to dissipate heat and comes with mar-proof plastic feet.
The steel base supports the kiln in two layers. The upper steel base supports and strengthens the ceramic fibre floor; the lower steel base covers the entire kiln bottom where it rests on the work surface. Electrical components are mounted to the lower base, away from the heat of the firing chamber.
The BlueBird Paragon Kiln plugs into a standard household outlet. It draws only 1500 watts and is economical to fire. Specially designed cartons and vacuum-formed padding assure that the kiln will arrive safely.
The BlueBird Paragon Kiln has a durable high temperature, water-base finish.
The BlueBird’s user-friendly 3-key Sentry Xpress digital controller automatically maintains the annealing temperature selected. The controller is packed with features but is very easy to program. The kiln includes a Quick Start programming guide and a 16-page controller instruction manual, printed in colour.
The Sentry Xpress 3-key controller includes two modes: Single Speed and 8-segment Ramp-Hold. The solid-state controller continually monitors the firing so you can spend your time productively without closely watching the kiln. The sealed controller touch pad keeps out dust and is easy to wipe clean.
Digital firing is very convenient. The reliable solid-state Sentry Xpress controller continually monitors firing and although it is unnecessary to closely watch the kiln we recommend checking the kiln occasionally during firing and also to monitor it near the expected shutoff time
