Physical difference between natural & propane orfice

I have found a good deal on wall mounted gas heaters but not sure if they are natural gas or propane.  I have been told changing them out on these type heaters is dangerous so I do not want to go that route.  I just want to know is there a physical difference that we can tell.

Merry Lynn, there will be no physical differences between Natural Gas heaters and Propane Gas heaters. Check the model number of the unit, it may have a N or P or LP printed at the end of it to distinguish which gas it uses. The plate that is attached to the heater should indicate the type of gas it uses.

 

DO NOT try to convert this heater to another gas.

How do i convert gas dryer to propane kenmore elite


kenmore has instructions along with the correct orfices you need to burn propane the only difference between gas and propane orfices is the hole size in the center of the orfices and there is very little difference in size propane is smaller hole because the pressure difference between natural gas low pressure proppane higher pressure

Bought a used jandy lite 2 unit. now switching from natural gas to propane. do i need to change all the orifices for propane? if so where can i purchase the orifices near tampa flroida or plant city...


Before you undertake this project, you should know that you will not just need the orfices. You will also need a different gas valve.

gas valve part number is : r0096900 for propane ($300.00+)
orfice part number: L0032900 (set of 2) ($3.00)

As you can see, this gas valve is not cheap. The lite2 is a very reliable heater, but chances are that if its been out of service, yo will also have to replace the thermocouple which will be another $75-$100.

Its very unlikely that anyone at your local pool supply store will have the gas valve in stock. They will definately not have the orfice in stock. Your best bet if you still want to proceed is to purchase these parts off the internet. Just google Jandy pool parts. then goto a few sites, search for the part numbers i gave you, and check for the best price.

How do I convert vanguard VMH26TPA wall heater from propane to natural gas?


You would have to get a conversion kit, which usually
is new orfices and a spring that goes into the gas valve. The kit would probably be cheaper than buying a gas valve and the orfices seperately

30 gallon propane supply tank for residential home, seems appliances are burning too hot, flames are very high what is the cause? Regulator? O2 supply?


could you have gotten a natural gas tank by mistake? it would have larger orfices and allow more gas than you need propane has more B.T.U.s than nat gas and requires a smaller orfice
chack with your gas co.good luck.

Trouble with waterheater


DO NOT USE THIS HEATER UNTIL IT HAS BEEN CHECKED OUT BY A PROFESSIONAL!

Most all gas appliances can use propane or natural gas, but they ship from the factory with orifices for one or the other.

Propane is rated at 11 iwg, natural gas at 7 iwg (where iwg=inches water gauge. 27 iwg=1 psig) (it takes a different regulator spring to handle this small difference in pressure.

A propane orifice will be smaller than a natural gas orifice.

The store that you bought the water heater should know what they sold you, and know if they have a kit to convert the regulator and orifices.
