Kiln heating elements

I’m looking for ideas on fixing my Paragon Home Artist kiln. This kiln is a bit different than most in that it has a ceramic fiber firing chamber where the coils are nestled in the wall of the chamber. The issue is that they are starting to contract and pull away from the wall and into the chamber. I have been in contact with Paragon and they suggested I use pyrolite adhesive to “glue” the elements back into the groove in the kiln wall. Bottom line is, this worked for a short while and the elements are again pulling away from the wall. Any other ideas and getting the coils back in their place and keeping them there?January 29, 2014 at 4:27 pm #13224jockoParticipant
Go to joppa glassworks, they carry all kind of stuff for glassworking equiptment. I am not familiar with your particular kiln but when I was at OSU we use to make tempory small kilns for a project. we used sheet metal and fiber frax for the sides and used wire to hold ceramic donuts which we threaded the kiln elements through. REMEMBER, They are exposed so DON’T TOUCH while the kiln is on. and I go on and on, visit this site and you may find something that will help: http://www.joppaglass.com/January 30, 2014 at 12:53 am #13225AGlassAct2Participant
