You will have to change the orifice for sure, but you have to get an orifice that works with the valve on the heater. Check with the manufacturer and see if there is a conversion kit, it is the only way to make sure that you make all the necessary changes to the unit. If there is not a conversion kit available, I would recommend that you not do it.

I have a older 40,000 BTU 3 burner natural gas deep fryer. I would like to convert to propane gas. The orifice number is size 32. Do I need to get different orifices to convert? The serial number is...


Hi there.

Burner orifice size for propane gas is number 55. You have to replace all burner orifice with this size if you want to use the fryer with propane gas. Pilot burner orifice should be replaced with propane pilot orifice.The gas valve spring should also be replaced with propane spring kit. The difference between the two spring is the natural gas spring is lighter or thinner compare with the propane gas valve spring.

Regards.

I need to convert a Endless Summer Blue Rhino patio heater Mod. No. 233010 from naturalm gas to propane , what do i need


You would need new pilot and main burner orifices. You would also have to ask the dealer/manufacturer if the valve on the propane heater will work with propane. It may not because the propane tank will have to be connected to the heater using an LP hose and regulator. You would then need to take apart the heater to install the new orifices. Considering the cost of a new heater that is set up for LP, I do not believe the conversion to be practical.

Dear sir i have a empire/corcho 1500 btu heater and i have a 70 gallon tank of propane tank but the heater says natural gas can i do this or do i have to use a conversion kit and do i do that and where do...


First off, yes you can convert it to propane. The difference is that the orifice, which should be in the conversion kit, has a smaller hole for the gas to pass through and needs to be changed. Secondly, the air consumption on propane is greater than that of natural gas and for that reason you need to open the air venturi, usually to the max to allow the largest amount of air to enter. Don't overlook the pilot light as well, it also needs to have a different orifice installed. You can find new orifices and/or conversion kits at the store where you buy your propane, assuming it's not a big box retailer. Go to a local propane supply location for the parts. Another option is to go directly to the manufacturers home page and order the propane orifices.

New BBQ chaged from propane to NG


Hello. The conversion of any gas appliance usually requires changing orifices, regulator and burner. Then once those changes are made you can adjust the gas flow. The difference in the orifices is this.
Natural gas orifices are larger than liquid propane orifices simply because the gas pressure for the natural gas is lower.

I would double check to be sure that you have installed the correct orifice. Also, you can adjust the amount of gas by turning the orifice in or out, using that socket.

I got a yellow flame on my Sunjoy Idustries patio heater model G-P018PSS and the flame is to big.


some of these items are engineered for a certain type of fuel. Some take propane some natural gas and other LP. take a look at your owners manual, it will explain what type of fuel to use and if you can convert your heater to the fuel that you are using.

Converting Thermos Stainless Grill to natural gas


You have to install a conversion kit for it to work the way you want. The reason is because the orifice in either the valves or the main "jet" that feeds the burner tube has to be changed. Natural gas is really not as efficient as lp gas (propane) because it takes more natural gas to create the same btu output as propane.

In short, your grill will not work if you do not do the conversion. I am including a link that lists the conversion kit for your grill, you can order it there and you can download the assembly manual as well.

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.
