The Paragon Darby Dipper crucible kiln for glass blowers.

Paragon Industries, the kiln factory in Mesquite, Texas, has just introduced the Darby Dipper crucible furnace. It is designed for glass blowers who need a small, 120 volt kiln for making custom glass colors, blown vessels, and neon tubing. The kiln can also be ordered in 240 volts and for international electrical systems.

The Darby Dipper is made from 3” insulating firebricks and has extra ceramic fiber insulation in the walls. The kiln, or furnace, is equipped with a Sentry Xpress digital temperature controller and an S-Type platinum thermocouple. The digital controller mounts on the wall and is connected to the Darby Dipper with 6’ cables.

Access to the crucible is gained through a 6” hole in the top. The kiln includes a firebrick cover with handle to place over the 6” hole. Sidewall heating elements are protected in dropped, recessed firebrick grooves. The stainless steel case can be adjusted with case tighteners.

“Paragon was founded by Frances Darby,” said Arnold Howard, spokesman for Paragon. “She would be amused by the name Darby Dipper.” Frances Darby founded Paragon in 1948. The kiln factory is a few miles east of Dallas, Texas.

Paragon Industries, L.P. manufactures kilns and furnaces for ceramics, pottery, glass fusing, dental laboratories, heat-treating, and knife making. Paragon kilns are made in America. Paragon was founded in 1948.
