Paragon SC3-BD Kiln

The digital SC-3 kiln fires silver clay, decals, china paint, enameling, and glass in minutes up to 2000°F. The SC-3 is popular with seminar teachers because it fires fast, plugs into a standard 120 volt household outlet, ships by UPS, and is large enough to fire many pieces.

The SC-3 has been in production since 1998. It is a proven design that we have steadily refined every year. Artists in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Japan love their SC-3.

The SC-3, for a digital kiln, is surprisingly affordable. It fires automatically at the rate and temperature you enter. A large, brightly lit display prompts for firing rate, temperature and hold time. Use the hold feature to automatically soak any type of clay silver to its recommended time.

The 6 1/2" wide bead door includes a brushed stainless steel mandrel holder. The high-tech ceramic fiber firing chamber is wrapped in a steel inner case. The outer steel case remains cool due to the layer of air between it and the inner case. In addition, the case is slotted for air circulation. Electrical components, located in the base, stay cool even at extended hold times.

The fast-firing element is embedded in the firing chamber shell. The SC-3 heats from the sides and back. Each SC-3 includes a 1/4" thick ceramic fiber shelf.
