Paragon Xpress-1193

The 3" wall Xpress-1193 can fire porcelain on a 120 volt, 20 amp outlet. With a temperature rating of 2300°F, it is ideal for porcelain dolls, porcelain jewelry, and glaze testing.

The Sentry Xpress 3-key controller is packed with features. It includes Cone-Fire and 8-segment Ramp-Hold modes. (Note: Ramp-Hold and Cone-Fire on the Sentry Xpress do not include some of the advanced features of the 12-key Sentry 2.0.)

Features of the Sentry Xpress 3-key Controller for Ceramic Kilns

  • Fire to a pyrometric cone by merely entering cone number and slow, medium or fast speed.
  • Program Review lets you check the program you are about to fire.
  • Program the Temperature Alarm to sound when the kiln reaches a specific temperature. Set the alarm to remind yourself to close a vented lid.
  • Design Ramp-Hold programs with up to 8 segments (steps).
  • Skip a segment in Ramp-Hold during firing without having to stop the kiln to reprogram.
  • Hold (soak) the temperature in both Cone-Fire and Ramp-Hold. Experiment with Hold to improve color saturation of china paints.
  • Control both heating and cooling in Ramp-Hold.
  • Add Hold Time during firing without having to stop the kiln to reprogram.
  • Change the target temperature in Ramp-Hold during firing without having to stop the kiln to reprogram.

    You will never outgrow a small kiln. If you later buy a larger kiln, continue to use the small one for testing or small projects. Perfect a new design in the small kiln before running production quantities in the large kiln. A small test kiln is invaluable in solving ceramic glaze problems and perfecting difficult glazes such as crystallines.

    The heat of the kiln is magical and offers wonderful surprises. Ceramic glazes undergo a complete transformation in the kiln. Opening a kiln to view your treasures is a festive moment that you will never outgrow. Artists have said, “Woohooo! Opening a kiln is a celebration!”

    Optional Xpress-1193 Furniture Kit

    1 C-10 (10” hexagon x 1/2”) Shelf, 1 C-10H 1/2 Shelf

  • The furniture kit consists of carefully selected fireclay shelves and posts for this particular model. When estimating the price of the kiln, include the cost of furniture. The furniture allows you to stack multiple layers of ware. Without it, you could fire only the ware that would fit on the kiln bottom.

    Optional Lid Safety Switch

    The optional lid safety switch turns off power to the heating elements when the lid is raised. The controller remains powered. The switch turns the power to the elements back on when the lid is closed. The switch mounts to the back of the lid. IMPORTANT: The lid safety switch is required in some areas such as Canada and Europe.
