your product description eludes to a Natural Gas orifice with this High Pressure cast iron burner - here is some of the text - " Perfect for full boils and all-grain brewing. Need a natural gas orifice? Check out this item. Propane Troubleshooting: If you are not getting the best flame possible "
It seems like there was a link in this description at some point but no longer. I'm interested in one of these with a natural gas orifice. Thanks!
A: The natural gas orifice if needed can be found on part ID #99-1677
Q: Can this be conveyed to natural gas?
A: This can be converted to Natural gas with the proper orifice and regulator assembly
Q: I am looking for 2 replacement brass fittings ( I think you refer to them as orfaces ) for the banjo burners, I can not find them on your website.
A: These are sold under part ID 35-5214
Q: This may seem obvious, but just want to be sure: will I be able to use a regulator with a 1/4 in outlet with this product, since you say this burner accepts 1/8 in NPT? What is NPT? Thank you.
A: NPT is National Pipe thread, a standardized fitting sizing used on pipe fittings. The orifice size on this burner, is 1/8" and would not work with a 1/4" Pipe thread connection
Q: Does this come with a natural gas orifice or a propane orifice?
I'm planning on using natural gas do I need a regulator? Is the 20 psi regulator only for propane?
A: The burner would come with a propane orifice but a natural gas orifice can be purchased separately. The regulator and hoses we have on the site are set for propane
Q: What is required to run this on natural gas. and can you run this burner without a regulator on propane?
A: The burner would be best run with a regulator for safety reasons on LP gas. It can be hooked to a Natural gas connection by purchasing the right Natural Gas orifice to connect the NG hose and burner
Q: can this be connect to regular gas line and not propane tank?.
A: If you are talking about it being connected to natural gas then yes it can. You can use Blichmann's orifice or conversion kit for the Banjo Burner ( Item Number 54-3868 or Item Number 54-1849 ). Thanks!
Q: What size is the thread in the casting? (1/4" NPT?)
A: The thread on this accepts a 1/8" FNPT. Thanks for the question!
Will the regulator and hose from my HB300-2 14 inch propane burner work with unit or do I need a different one, if so do you have one and what is the price?
A: As long it's at least a 20psi regulator with the standard flare fitting (to attach to the orifice) it should work great. You could try it first, and if it doesn't work pick up item # 35-4295 on your next order.
Q: What is the diameter of this burner?
A: This is a 10 inch burner
Q: Will this burner fit in the blichmann burner housing properly? I have a blichmann and the burner now has a hole in it, housing is in great shape.
A: This burner will not fit the Blichmann floor or toptier burner stand. Blichmann is getting their burners specially cast just for their stands.
Q: Where would I buy the orifice for natural gas that is compatible with this burner?
A: You can use Blichmann's orifice or conversion kit for the Banjo Burner ( Item Number 54-3868 or Item Number 54-1849 ).
Q: could u let me know the weigh of this item?
A: This burner has a shipped weight of 17 pounds.
Q: you mentioned 12 inches tall this is from the bottom curve to the top? correct. my tank is 145 gal and I am looking to build 1 buernes for it but the bottom is around 14 inches
A: I apologize, that caption was for a different item that got superimposed on the Banjo Burner. The face of this burner is 10" in diameter.
Q: If you convert this burner to natural gas, I assume you need a special regulator? If this assumption is correct, from where can I obtain one? I have an outdoor natural gas line in my backyard and I would like to convert from propane (without blowing myself up!). Any information would be greatly appreciated.
A: Paul, if you are unsure of how to attach it, I would look for a professional to set this up for you- you are absolutely right, we do not want you to blow up;)
The difference in using this as natural gas is the diameter of the orifice on the gas adapter. For your natural gas, you typically use a small ball valve or needle valve to regulate the gas.
