trifecta kiln
Model Trifecta-b
This version of the kiln is outfitted with heavy-duty longer lasting elements designed to facilitate work with borosilicate. Melting a pot of boro requires running the kiln near its maximum temperature;
during these types of firings, normal elements wear faster and require frequent replacement. The elements in this version of the kiln minimize the need for replacing elements, although in boro work replacing elements is a fact of life. Runs on three elements. These Kilns are made to order. Delivery may take a little longer

The Trifecta Crucible Kiln

The Trifecta glass blowers kiln will take you to a new level of production. It holds three crucibles, which you can access through three 9 holes in the lid. Enjoy the freedom of mixing custom glass colors. Make huge glass figurines, paperweights, blown vessels, stringers, and much more. Pull your own neon tubing. Make glass castings. The Trifecta is a glass blowers dream kiln, designed by glass blowers. This kiln is pure celebration. Now available with optional wiring for Borosilicate Glass.

Crucible Covers, Extra Wall Insulation, K-25 Firebricks

The three crucible holes each include a firebrick crucible cover with wooden handle. The lid is held in place with four T-handle spring latches. (The lid does not have a hinge.) Four hand lifts are mounted to the lid.

The 3 thick, high temperature K-25 firebrick walls are wrapped with ceramic fiber blanket between the firebricks and stainless steel case. As with the walls, the K-25 firebrick lid and bottom are 3 thick, which is 20% thicker than the standard 2 1/2 firebrick. The extra insulation and heavy-duty elements are designed for very long heat soaks. Check the crucibles through the peephole, which is tapered for easy viewing. Four hand lifts aid in moving the kiln.

Platinum Thermocouple, Industrial Mercury Relay

The deluxe S-Type platinum thermocouple with ceramic protection tube is standard on all Trifecta kilns. This deluxe, hassle-free thermocouple far outlasts the standard K-Type for your peace of mind.

A mercury relay, ideal for long firings, is standard on the Trifecta. (The relay sends power from the controller to the heating elements.) The industrial mercury relay in this kiln outlasts mechanical relays. The life of the quiet, reliable mercury relay has been measured in millions of on/off cycles.

Separate Bottom, Steel Base Plate, 9 Stand

The Trifecta has a separate bottom section held in place with four T-handle spring latches. Should a crucible crack during firing and leak glass onto the firebrick bottom, merely replace the damaged bottom section. With the detachable bottom, you wont worry about damage from a crucible incident.

A 9 tall kiln stand is included at no extra charge. The stand is complete with mar-proof plastic feet. 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 reliable Paragon kiln is built to last.

A Convenient Digital Controller

The Trifecta includes the Sentry Xpress digital controller. Because of the extended holds at high temperatures, the controller is in a separate wall-mounted panel and attached to the kiln with 6 cables. This keeps the controller away from the heat for longer life. Program the digital controller for the exact consistency of glass melt that you desire. Enjoy predictable results. You can also use the kiln for pottery or glass fusing. The kiln comes with a one year warranty. (Please note: Due to the long firing cycles of a crucible kiln, the warranty does not cover the heating elements.)

The Trifecta has three elements. If one element burns out, the kiln will still have 2/3 of its original power. This may not be enough to keep the glass molten, but it might give the glass blower additional time to use up the glass and save the crucible. You will know an element burned out because you will see a drop in temperature.

Quality Components

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. The Trifecta control box is finished in a durable high temperature, water-base blue paint, which releases low emissions in the factory during spraying. This creates a safer working environment for our employees and cuts down on pollution.
