Suitable for: Crystalline Glazes, Decals, Fast Firings, Low-Fire Ceramics, Porcelain and Stoneware
The Viking-28 is designed for extra heavy duty firing. This 12-sided kiln easily reaches stoneware temperatures. During busy seasons when orders are backlogged, you will be grateful you own a dependable Paragon Viking work horse.
The Paragon Viking 28 kiln features the Sentry 12-key digital temperature controller, easy access switch box, pinless elements, and the "LiteLid" counter balance spring system. The Paragon Viking 28 also comes with built in high amperage fuses, and heavy-duty mercury relays.
This kiln includes a stand with locking casters, a mounting bracket for the Orton Kiln Vent and a greenware drying rack. Simply load your greenware on the lower shelf and the heat from the kiln will dry the ware for the next firing.

Plenty of Power - All Vikings are digital. As with Paragon standard TnF top-loading studio kilns, they feature the Sentry 12-key digital temperature controller, easy-access switch box, pinless elements, and the LiteLid counter-balance spring system. But in addition, they come with built-in high amperage fuses, and heavy-duty mercury relays instead of our standard mechanical relays. Industrial mercury relays far outlast the standard mechanical relays and are also quieter.
The Viking-28 has power to spare. Their extra wattage helps compensate for aging elements or low voltage. They have ample power to reach cone 10 and, if you ever need it, to fire rapidly. Elements last longer, because the extra wattage and thicker 3" firebricks help the elements reach porcelain and stoneware temperatures without strain. Since the kiln can fire stoneware, it can naturally handle low-fire ceramics with ease.
Sectional Construction - You can separate the Viking-28 kiln bottom and sections to repair bricks, to change elements, or to move the kiln down narrow stairwells or through narrow doorways. Heavy-duty twist-lock spring latches securely hold the assembled kiln sections. The kiln is easy to maintain—the stainless steel case of each kiln section includes case tighteners.
