The TNF82 with Sentry 12-Key Controller is a round top loading Insulating FireBrick Kiln with groove mounted Elements. It measures 16.5″dia x 22.25″D inside. The TNF823 Kiln is rated to 2350°F. It fires on 240 Volt / 1 Phase and used a NEMA 6-50P Cordset. Drop Down Switchbox. Rated to 7200 Watts.
The digital automatic TNF-82 Paragon kiln is large enough for most ceramic projects. Figured at cost per cubic foot, it is among our lowest-priced hobby kilns. It uses the same circuit size as most of our studio kilns. Upgrade to a larger kiln later without having to install a new circuit.
This kiln now features the easy-access drop-down switch box. Remove two screws, and the box, hinged at the bottom, opens forward for easy maintenance. The kiln features a top row of 2” high blank wall bricks. Since the brick is without element grooves, it is less susceptible to damage during loading than a grooved brick.
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.
The TNF-82 is made of a 2 ½” thick firebrick in the lid, walls, and bottom. It is designed for low-fire ceramics, china paint, decals, and gold. For porcelain and stoneware, select a kiln made of 3” firebrick.
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.
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.
