It is designed for glass blowers who make custom glass colors, blown vessels, and neon tubing. It can also cast glass.
The wall-mounted digital temperature controller is connected to the Trifecta with 6’ cables. The Trifecta holds three crucibles. Three 9” holes in the lid each include a firebrick crucible cover. Spring latches hold the lid to the kiln.
3” high temperature K-25 firebrick is used throughout the kiln. The firebrick walls are wrapped with a ceramic fiber blanket, which is protected behind a stainless steel case.
A mercury relay, which turns on the heating elements, and an S-Type platinum thermocouple are standard on the Trifecta. The separate firebrick bottom can be replaced should a crucible ever crack and spill hot glass. The bottom is attached to the furnace with four T-handle spring latches for quick removal.
“All our kilns and furnaces are made in America,” said Arnold Howard, spokesman for Paragon. “51 percent of the employees have been with Paragon for over 10 years. We even have five employees who have been here over 30 years.”
