Suitable for: Glass fusing
Create breathtaking glass in the deluxe GL-24ADTSD Professional Series glass kiln. The GL-24ADTSD is proudly made in America by skilled craftsmen and designed for those whose livelihood depends on glass production. The kiln includes features not found on competitive kilns.
Deluxe Mercury Relays
For instance, for your peace of mind, mercury relays are standard on this kiln. Relays send power to the elements on command from the digital controller. Mercury relays found on the GL-24ADTSD are industrial-grade and far outlast mechanical relays. The life of the quiet, reliable mercury relay has been measured in millions of on/off cycles.
Elements in the Top, Walls, and Door
The GL-24ADTSD digital kiln heats from the top, three sides and door for unsurpassed heat distribution. It is 15” high inside with room to bend glass for curved windows or cabinet doors and to repair lampshades. Make huge glass-fused platters. Crack the door to drag a rod across the softened glass or to emboss designs in the surface. Explore small-to-medium sized casting and pâte de verre. Enjoy the glittering beauty of dichroics. Make treasured gifts.
The GL-series lid elements use an element groove that eliminates element pins. The element coils are wider than the groove opening, so the elements stay in place without pins.
Use the kiln’s side heat for taller projects such as drop-out vases sagged through a ring mold. Side elements, seated in dropped, recessed brick grooves, span the three walls in six horizontal rows.
The kiln’s door elements offer unsurpassed heat distribution for difficult pieces. (The door, with elements, is always hinged on the right side.)
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. The optional glass viewing windows are not available on the GL-24ADTSD.
Digital Temperature Controller
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 shut off time.) The sealed touch pad keeps out dust and is easy to wipe clean.
Paragon’s innovative controller will help you achieve consistent results from one firing to the next. 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.
