Paragon Fusion-7 Glass Fusing Kiln

Paragon’s new Fusion-series digital hot glass kilns are packed with exciting features. The digital Sentry Xpress 3 key controller comes standard on all Fusion-series kilns. Control both heating and cooling with simple 3-key operation.

The Fusion-7 offers the convenience of 120 volt operation. 

The Fusion-series lid elements use a new element groove that eliminates element pins. The element coils are wider than the groove opening, so the elements stay in place without pins.

A heavy galvanized steel base covers the reversible brick bottom completely. It folds up under the stainless case on all sides to strengthen the firing chamber. This is one more assurance that your Paragon kiln is built to last.

Judith Conway of Vitrum Studio said, “The Paragon Fusion-7 is an excellent kiln. Operating on regular household current, it is an easy addition to your home/studio. And Paragon offers better-than-excellent customer service. We have sold many, many Fusion-7's, and all our customers/students/friends recommend them to others as both a great starter kiln and a kiln to keep on hand for both test firings and smaller firings and smaller load firings in the years to come.”

Imagine the glass you could sag, slump, and fuse with this kiln. Make small bowls, pendants, earrings, cufflinks, and even bracelets. Enjoy the glittering beauty of dichroics. Make treasured gifts. When you own a Paragon kiln, you can experiment with new glass ideas to your heart’s content.

Becky Johnson, a glass teacher in Dallas, Texas, describes the excitement of a kiln: “I like to open the kiln with my students so that we can review and admire each other’s treasures together. The transformation of the glass inside the kiln is magical and mystical. It changes from pieces of arranged cut glass to awe-inspiring art. To be some part of that process is a true gift.”

The Sentry Xpress 3-key controller is packed with features. It includes two modes: Single Speed and 8-segment Ramp-Hold.

Features of the Sentry Xpress 3-key Controller on Paragon Glass Kilns

  • Design programs with up to 8 segments (steps) in Ramp-Hold mode.
  • Fire to a single temperature at a single speed in the simplified Single Speed mode.

  • Change the target temperature in Ramp-Hold during firing without having to stop the kiln to reprogram.
  • Hold (soak) the temperature in both Single Speed and Ramp-Hold. Experiment with Hold to improve color saturation of china paints.

The Optional Fusion-7 Furniture Kit

Glass must be fired on a ceramic shelf; never directly on the kiln firing chamber bottom.

1 - C-13 - 13” Round Shelf
4 - 1” wide Square Posts, ½” long
1 lb. Bag Glass Separator

Optional Glass Viewing Window

Watch the bright red kiln interior through the optional 1” x 3” high-temperature glass window. (Note: always wear firing safety glasses when viewing the kiln interior.) Conveniently watch your glass treasures progress through every stage from tack fuse to full fuse.



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.




Optional Bead Door

Adding the optional 2 1/2” x 6 1/2” bead door to your Fusion-6 or -7 is like buying two kilns instead of one. Not only can you fuse and slump glass, but with the bead door you can also anneal glass beads. Comes complete with bead mandrel holder.

Note: The kiln may fire a little slower when equipped with the bead door.



Optional Mercury Relay Upgrade

Order your new kiln with the mercury relay upgrade, which is a single TF-26 mercury relay. The mercury relay is quiet and reliable. The life of a mercury relay has been measured in millions of on/off cycles. Mercury relays outlast the standard mechanical relays and are available as an option on new kilns.

Optional Fiber Lid Upgrade

The Fusion-series glass kilns can be ordered with an optional ceramic fiber top in place of the firebrick top. Serious glass artists have long requested the fiber top for their firebrick kilns. The ceramic fiber lid includes a deluxe brushed stainless steel outer lid cover. (The photo shows the Fusion-8 but represents all Fusion models. Note: The price above is only for a fiber lid ordered with a new kiln. 





Optional 18 Inch tall Kiln Stand

The 18" square x 18" tall stand will raise the height of your Fusion kiln firebrick floor to 20 1/2". Very sturdy. Assembly required.
