Our Propane Burners are manufactured to be used with Aquatic Glassel/fireglass. We are the only company in the world successfully offering custom made propane burners that safely burn Aquatic Glassel / fireglass. There are a lot of aspects of working with Propane please Click Here to Find out More.
NOTE* We do not currently Sell Propane Burner kits online. Please call us for a consultation as their are a lot of safety issues that must be dealt with before we can sell you a propape burner.
Here are 2 photos of the propane control box with the air mixer. Propane gas must be mixed with air to insure a clean burn without soot! If you burn straight propane you will experience black smoke/ soot on anything you place in your fire pit / fireplace
These are our FPPK models (fire pit propane kit) This is a 24" ring on a 30" base. The base is detached for remote locating.You can also see the thermo-coupler and electronic starter. The thermocouple is the safety switch which if the fire is blown out and leaving the thermocouple cold will shut your system off for safety reasons.
Round Pan Burner
Other sizes include:
- 18" pan with a 12" burner
- 24" pan with a 18" burner
- 30" pan with a 24" burner
We are taking order for the burners as they are being built as ordered. Manufacturing time varies on our work load, however 2-4 weeks is to be expected.
Regarding UL CSA Listing
Our products Do Not require any certification from the AGA, CSA or UL as it is considered a stand-alone product. And by the way these agencies are franchise operations and are privately owned. These are not government agencies. These agencies are hired for mass production testing and AGA, CSA and or UL do not certify custom one of a kind projects. So unless sand and or lava rock need certification - We Do Not certification!
Custom burners Do Not need certification. This only applies to production equipment. Just so you can understand that a certification costs about $15,000.00 and certification was developed for production/ mass production to assure quality.
Any parts that would normally need AGA or UL do in fact have these approvals. Parts with function need and should have some sort of approval. The pan burners we sell that do have UL, CSA and or any other listings are produced by other companies. The custom pan burners that we produce are just that, custom.
We would never use any “Third World Country” or any unlisted, untested parts to build any products and or parts to endanger any product performance what so ever. So therefore we do not require UL, CSA and or any other agency listings as these are custom. The parts that we use to build these pans are UL, CSA listed as they should be.
Installation of a Propane Pan
These fireplace photos were sent to us by a customer in Palm Desert, CA. We will show you step by step on how to install a clean burning propane pan burner, no really.
First clear out your fireplace and paint with stove paint if desired.
Hook up the flex line and check for any leaks before going any further.
Lava will be provided with your pan. Fill only inside the pan area. Light again and check your flame pattern.
On this application pea-graval was used to fill the backside of the fireplace. Make sure to keep your gravel/lava a couple of inches back away from the front.
This particular propane pan burner used Sky Blue base glass.
Now install your patented fireglass over your pan and everywhere else. Make sure your pilot is still above the surface of the glass or it will not work properly. Controls must also be exposed to operate.
The Liptack's from Arizona had a modern backyard fire pit that needed some help. They wanted to make sure they'd have a clean burn so we provided the propane system along with flex hoses, mounting brackets, outdoor stainless steel linear burner and 48" Propane Hose with Regulator.
They topped it all of crushed lava, 1/4" Black and Iridized Scartlet ED Diamonds.
Ty Havas didn't want the ordinary Propane pan for his fireplace. He wanted a pan that would be more than functional. So after some sketches and discussions we began making a cardboard mock up.
He would ultimately recieve a Stainless Steel pan with angled legs and 3 inch depth to accomodate the burner and fireglass. Here the cardboard mock-up along with his fireplace measurments (which you can see denoted on the cardboard piece below the mock-up) assure that we attain the correct size and appropriate design.
The fireplace is emptied out and it becomes apparent that its in dire need of a fresh coat of paint. And since the custom pan was built with legs, the fireplace floor will be left visible and as a result fresh tile will be added to the hearth.
The fireplace re-design is complete with two custom reflective sterling silver panels on either side of the pan to give the illusion of the fireplace being larger.
The custom stainless steel pan is filled 1/4" Bronze, 1/4" Bronze Reflective, Copper Ruby Red, Yellowish Opal Orange, and Red Brown.
A wonderful transformation.
This custom concrete top was built by our customer Tim Masloski. And though it looks amazingly cool; it was also amazingly heavy! Like Enrique Castro, the design superseded the the functionality of the piece. The 3" thick top could have been 1" thick with a form underneath.
Tim brought in the piece, and we went to work installing our custom propane burner system with an aluminum base, 38" linear Burner, Thermocoupler/pilot system, 100,000 BTU regulator and 15' quick disconnect hose.
We test the flame output, on both high and low settings to make sure the burner works properly.
The media was 3/16" Clear, Super Black, Clear Blocks with gravel as filler.
Turned out great Tim.
Brian Jensen's propane fire pit, with a 36" square pan and 24" Stainless Steel double fire ring under a combination of 1/4" Azurlite and 1/2" Azurilte.
Michael built this awesome propane fire table with a tree trunk base. Below the propane Valve and air mixer is installed below the table top; allowing for easy access while keeping it out of sight.
A 10" Stainless Steel Center-less ring surrounds his unique rock center piece which sits a-top our crushed lava rock.
Check out Michaels website to see more of his custom work.
These pictures come to us from Vito Sanfilippo in Pennsylvania. He had a propane fireplace with some old dirty fake logs. So he did the right thing and got rid of those mess makers, and contacted us.
He applied a fresh coat of fireplace paint, and then removed the glass fireplace doors, as they are not needed with fireglass fireplaces.
The propane pan is installed and you can see the control valve on the lower right hand corner of the fireplace. The glass used was 1/4" Clear and 1/4 Bronze fireglass.
Vito really crancked up the heat, demonstrating just how well our propane burners work!
Thanks for the great pictures Vito! We hope your enjoying your new warmer & cleaner fireplace this winter in Pennsylvania.
This was a custom size pan because of the smaller size of the fireplace, but we can build anything.
The following propane burner pan was modified to work via remote control. Designed as a trapazoid, with tapered edges the pan was showcased a removable front
The removable front concealed the control valve for the standing pilot light stystem.
Below you can see the ease of the ignition system being connected to the remote control unit.
This propane pan was designed with a remote control unit that was concealed with a removal panel.
This keeps the aesthetic of the custom pan by concealing the components.
Joe Ramirez contacted us with a few fire pit problems, which we helped him fix. When building a propane fire pit, keep in mind the following:
- Don't put your controls under the base plate, you want to make sure that if you ever need to service the unti you will be able ot have access to it.
- The Air mixer needs to be located in its proper position so that base of the fire pit wont fill up with gas and create a bomb.
- Again air ventalation is critical when it comes to propane.
Here is what Joe had to say...
"Were all good, I spoke to Morgan very helpful, you got a great crew. Works like a champ. Thanks again."
A Propane Burner With a Brushed Finish
The propane pan below has a brushed finish on the front metal shield. This is a two part shield, one to retain the fireglass and second to conceal the controls.
The picture below shows the complete front dropped down to access the controls.
This type of propane burner can modified for outdoor (rectangle) fire pits.
Propane Burner Issues
I have seen this scenario all too often, the supplier only cares about making the sale. They don't ask what your doing,or how you're doing it, or even if your using propane or natural gas!!! Which if you haven't already figured out can have disastrous consequences. And sometimes you painfully discover that there is no customer support after the sale.
We are the only manufacturer building clean burning propane burners that can be used safely with aquatic glassel/fireglass. We are involved with your propane project from beginning to end and more importantly are available after the fact!
An Ordinary Outdoor Fire Table - Converted to a Fireglass Table With Propane
This was a basic wood burning fire pit purchased locally and converted with our fire pit propane kit (FPPK). So often we receive phone calls with customers who believe that they have to re-invent the wheel when it comes to fire tables. But the truth is, we often simply modify exsisting outdoor tabels so that our propane units work in various formats.
The fire pit below has a 1/4" Clear, 1/2" Clear Base
with Red Orange Topping
, Emerald Green
Topping and Light Sky Blue Topping
Outdoor Propane Fire Table With Tile Top
The fire table wasn't configured correctly which is always obvious by signs of sooting (carbon monoxide - the black stuff on the glass.)
We are the only company manufacturing propane burners that are properly configured with the appropriate safety valves and air mixers to insure a clean and safe burn. If built correctly, you can safely and cleanly burn aquatic glassel / fireglass.
If you purchased a propane fire table from someone else, other than us, you will have problems. So contact us today to receive the correct and safe type of propane burner to assure a clean burn. The Aquatic Glassel used in this fire table was Starfire and Pale Cobalt Blue Topper.
Round Pan Burner
Below is a 36" aluminum pan burner for propane with a 3" outside lip. These can be made to fit any fire pit, fire table of fire fit for natural gas or propane. We can build anything! This pan has a thermo-coupler for safety and air mixer built in to eliminate soot. Contact us with your questions 909 989-6129.
Here is an example of a 30" base with a double 24" FPPK (fire pit propane kit) stainless steel burner. You will notice the igniter and thermo coupler (heat switch for safety). The base plate is to prevent propane from leaking into the fire pit below.
A Restaurant Propane Fire Pit Converted to Work with Fireglass
This fireplace is in Shawano, Wisconsin at the Cotton Patch Restaurant. E mail Patti and tell here you saw her fireplace. Here are a few before shots of the fireplace before the conversion began.
This was a custom propane burner which was designed to cleanly burn under the glass! The fireplace has Bronze, Bronze Reflective, Ice, Gold and Yellow Amber Topper.
And here is what Patti had to say:
Well, it's been about two weeks since I installed the new fireplace, and it is the talk of this sleepy little town. Because of the "Ice" on the top, it has been nicknamed the "Fire and Ice" fireplace. I just placed an order for a pound each of 1/4" Gold, Yellow Amber Topper and Clear Ice. I think it needs a smidgen more color, and since the Ice is the big feature, I decided to add a little more. I have to say, I didn't think I would like the ice, but it looks amazing!
Thank you Ed and Jimmy for all of your help and hand holding over the past few months. I will take more pictures when I add the new products.
Custom Center-Less Burner Ring
These are our round burner rings without a center hub. These unique center-less rings are available in either steel or stainless steel.
Brushed Aluminum Propane Pan
The pan below is a brushed aluminum pan with sculpted legs. This propane pan is now offered with an adapter on the back-side for remote control use (battery operated).
Here is the same pan, being tested.
Now we add the fireglass a Multi Mix
for the photo shoot only. The pan is 2" with 3" legs. This pan was custom made for our client in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
Custom Install of a Propane Pan in a Copper Bowl
Our client Crista here in California bought this copper bowl with a lid and we installed a propane burner inside. We used one of our FPPK kits (fire pit propane kit).
Here is the Bowl with the FPPK installed on top of the table Crista built to hold the copper pan/ bowl.
Ventless Fireplace #1 - Natural Gas
The ventless burner
below was sent to our customer in Georgia. The glass that we tested it with was Multi Mix
a combination of various fireglass. This type of burner can also be used with Natural Gas. Notice the stainless box tray underneath the upper pan.
Ventless Fireplace #2 - Propane
The ventless burner
below is made of steel and there were actually 4 of these made. We covered the front and sides with 5" skirts. These pictures were taken just after the testing. This is a propane ventless burner
and these are available in natural gas as well.
The pictures below are of the same burner as above with Azurlite
installed. These 4 ventless burners
are being installed in Georgia. If you dream it, design it, think of it, we can build it as we are the innovators in the industry.
Ventless Fireplace - Propane
The propane ventless burner
below was designed in a stainless steel pan.
You'll notice where the sensor is in order to work. The Stainless steel pan was filled with Gold fireglass
for the test burn.
Ventless Fireplace #3 - Propane
The pictures below are of a steel propane ventless burner.
We used the original burner and installed an air mixer under the pan to insure a clean burn. As you will see the thermo-coupler, pilot light and ODS (oxygen depletion sensor are intact). These pans can be made in any shape or material.
What ever burner you purchase with or without remote control, we can convert it for you. Propane or natural gas, vented, direct vent or ventless as shown.
The skirts will hide the the valves and the remote control will be moved to the side of the fireplace. This was a ventless burner the customer sent to us for conversion and they asked for us to add a remote to all 4 vent less burners.
The Roxbury Hotel
The fire pit table is at the Roxbury Hotel and we will show you the process from beginning to end. We start with the framing and making sure we undersand how the gas line comes in and out out of the floor.
Roxbury Hotel, a cool fire pit!
Stainless Steel / Propane Pan
The pan burner below was built to be used outdoors that's why its stainless stell. We've installed an electronic ignition
under the pan. These can also be made for natural gas.
Fireglass With An Unconverted Propane Burner
The fire pit below is a failed attempt to burn fireglass with a regular propane burner. Remember you can't burn propane with fireglass without modification! If you try this, this is what it will look like.
You need to calibrate the burner or it will back fire, burn black or explode! We won't tell you who tried this but we will tell you we did fix the issue and now the customer is very happy. We did use Azurlite
with Azurlite Reflective
A Propane Fire Pit - Done Right!
The pictures below will show you how to install a propane burner and valve in your fire pit without drilling a hole in the side of your fire pit with our FPPK (fire pit propane kit).
This was install in Calabasas California with Bronze
and Bronze Reflective
on top. The fire pit has 10" solid sides which made this a good candidate for the FPPK to be installed on the inside wall.
This propane fire pit was calibrated so that every valve and ring we installed would eliminate back flow and any problems that may happen. We also installed the proper type of air mixer to insure a clean burn; eliminating the soot produced by propane. If you have a propane fire pit you know what I am talking about.
Single Burner Pipe - Propane Pan Burner
The propane burner below was made to inset flush to the floor with a remote control underneath the pan. The pan sat 5" below the surface so the glass would appear to be just above the surface. The outer ring was bolted down to keep the glass from falling underneath the burner in the event you ever had to service the burner or remote control. The tower you see is actually for the air mixer to draft fresh air to the propane before it burns.
As you can see we drilled it to look like a ribbon burner
Ribbon (Single Pipe) Propane Burner
The burner below is a propane ribbon burner
with all stainless steel construction. A ribbon burner produces a linear flame, this can accomdate different design expectations.
The pan and all around was filled with glass hiding/ concealing all of the workings. A ribbon burner will mold all of the flames together making it look like a ribbon of fire.
