Details

The new Paragon Janus-24 can fire both pottery and glass. Heating elements are mounted in the top, sidewalls, and door.



Glass and clay firing modes

Select between glass and pottery with the flip of a switch. With the switch in the glass position, heat comes from the top elements and the middle sidewall element. With the switch in the pottery position, heat comes from only the sidewall elements.



In the glass mode, fuse and sag large glass projects placed on a single shelf. In the pottery mode, fire to cone 10. You can also fire several shelves of smaller glass pieces using the pottery mode.



The elements in the roof are mounted in a firebrick “ball” groove that eliminates element pins. The element coils are wider than the groove opening, so the elements stay in place without pins. The groove dissipates heat efficiently.



Advanced element grooves

The elements in the roof are mounted in a firebrick “ball” groove that eliminates element pins. The element coils are wider than the groove opening, so the elements stay in place without pins. The groove dissipates heat efficiently.



Wires are fastened to the elements with heat-dissipating connectors refined and proven over many years in Paragon kilns. Elements are coiled from the finest high-temperature wire available.



Optional mercury relay

If you need to anneal glass for extended periods in your Janus-24, purchase the optional mercury relay upgrade. Mercury relays, which are found on our large industrial kilns, outlast mechanical relays. The life of the quiet, reliable mercury relay has been measured in millions of on/off cycles.



Heavy duty components

The insulating firebrick, wrapped in heavy-gauge steel, soak up heat for slow, efficient cooling. A double heat shield and air gap between the kiln and ventilated switch box help keep electrical components cool for long, trouble-free service. Costly heavy-gauge nickel-plated copper wiring is covered with high temperature glass-braided insulation.



The spring-pressure latch and a ½" recess around the edge of the firebrick door keep the door tightly closed. The door remains rock-steady on a heavy hinge shaft. Four hand lifts aid moving. The base is open in the back and slotted to dissipate heat.



Thermocouple with “special limit” wire

The thermocouple senses temperature inside the kiln. It is the small rod that extends into the side of the firing chamber. The Janus-24 comes with an exposed-tip thermocouple made with special-limit wire for superior accuracy. The new and improved thermocouple replaces our earlier sheathed thermocouple. The new thermocouple is made in America to our exacting standards.



Two peepholes

Watch the red-hot glass through two tapered peepholes, drilled one above the other in the wall opposite the switch box. Peephole plugs are included.



Door safety switch

The kiln includes a door safety switch that turns off the elements when the door is opened. The controller remains powered and automatically resumes firing when you close the door.



Digital temperature accuracy

The digital Sentry 2.0 includes two modes: Cone-Fire with programmed slow cooling and 18-Segment Ramp-Hold. Manufactured by the Orton Ceramic Foundation exclusively for Paragon.



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.



Martin Bush of Richardson, Texas owns a Janus-24. “What I like about it is the ability to fire ceramics, so I can make my own molds for slumping glass,” said Martin. “I have noticed that in the glass mode, the kiln cannot handle fast temperature rates (500 degrees per hour or higher), usually when I do pot melts. No problem. I just use the ceramic mode, which easily handles the higher rates. The size is great for a variety of projects, from small to large. Now that I see where I can use the ceramic setting with multiple shelves on small projects, even better!”



  • Glass/pottery selection switch
  • 3” insulating refractory firebrick walls
  • Operate the door latch with one hand.
  • Sidewall elements in dropped, recessed brick grooves are easy to replace.
