TNF 28-3

 

28" opening, 29" depth

The massive, 12-sided Paragon digital TnF-28-3 kiln is a profit center of the busy ceramic studio. It eats up stacks of low-fire ware. At a cost per cubic foot, the TnF-28-3 is one of the most economically priced standard kilns we make.

 

The TnF-28-3 now features sectional construction. Separate the kiln bottom and sections to repair bricks, change elements, or to move the kiln down narrow stairwells or through the narrowest doorways. Twist-lock spring latches hold the assembled collars securely.

 

The top row of brick in the TnF-28-3 is 2” high and without element grooves. It is less susceptible to damage during loading than a grooved brick. We have upgraded the TnF-28-3 kiln to 48 amps. With beefier elements, it fires to temperature with less strain. It is rated to 2150°F, ideal for low-fire ware.

 

During busy seasons when orders are backlogged, you will be grateful you own a dependable Paragon kiln. Studio owners call these kilns “real work horses.”

 

 

 

Hinged at the bottom, the switch box on 8, 10 & 12 sided TnF kilns opens forward for easy maintenance. A folding support arm holds the box in the open position. The Sentry is mounted at the top of the switch box within easy reach. Operate it from a comfortable position.

 

The TnF-28-3 uses deluxe 3” thick firebrick throughout: in the sidewalls, the reversible brick bottom, and the 3” thick lid. The massive lid is easy to lift with Paragon's patented “LiteLid,” which does away with cumbersome pulleys and cords and reduces lid weight to only several pounds of pressure. Most people can lift the lid with one hand. Unlike pulleys and weights, the LiteLid is self-contained on the kiln. No need to drill holes in the ceiling for pulleys. The LiteLid sharply reduces wear between the lid and top rim of firebrick. The truss and floating lid allow expansion of the lid. Ask competitors if their lid spring includes a truss and floating lid.

 

The 24” wide stand for the TnF-28-3 kiln supports the brick bottom with framing that is 4 ½” wide across the top of each side. The stand is rock-steady, with 16-gauge frame and heavy 12-gauge legs.

 

If you move your kiln out of the way when not in use, order an optional deluxe kiln stand with steel casters.

 

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.

 

You will be amazed at the convenience of digital firing. The reliable solid-state Sentry controller continually monitors the firing so you can spend your time productively without closely watching the kiln. (Please remember, however, to check the kiln during firing and to monitor it near the expected shutoff time.) The sealed touch pad keeps out dust and is easy to wipe clean.

 

The controller has powerful features that you will enjoy using. Yet we have also worked hard to make the controller user-friendly.

 

Do you ever wonder how much electricity your kiln uses? The digital controller can figure this for you with the press of a button. Find out how little a kiln actually costs to fire. Learn to conserve energy by experimenting with firing speed, load density, etc.
