About the Manufacturer

HPC is on the cutting edge of outdoor gas fire pit technology and offers a wide variety of burners to fit the need of any construction or do-it-yourself project. All HPC fire pit rings have staggered burner ports for a more natural-looking flame pattern and presence. Both stainless steel and cold rolled steel burners are available, and both feature ports that are drilled, not punched, for optimal quality; the burner hub is raised above the concentric rings to reduce the risk of water in the valve or gas line.

Product Overview

Hearth Products Controls Penta Stainless Steel Fire Pit Burner, 18-Inch, Natural Gas provides a high quality fire pit component necessary to complete your gas fire pit project. The unique Penta shaped burner is constructed from high quality 304 stainless steel; each Penta burner features staggered burner ports, a 1/2 Inch female gas inlet, and is neatly machine welded to produce a seamless and durable product.

This burner can be installed DIY with the help of a professional installer and is intended to be used with natural gas applications; for LP applications a propane conversion kit, which includes an air mixer, coupler & nipple, will be necessary. The burner should be at least 6" smaller than the inside dimensions of your enclosure and must be installed so the burner ports face upwards.

Love the way our fire pit turned out. We are very pleased with the penta's natural looking flames. The quality seems good. We are hoping it holds up to the elements.

I replaced an existing smaller burner on my firepit. This was purely an upgrade. I wanted a larger and more realistic flame. And I got it with the Penta-burner. Everyone loves it. I do get a slight hiss/whistle when it is operating on high. But I never operate it on high. I don’t need to. All is good. I’m very pleased.

Easy to install. Great looking flame. Had water and dirt in the line after old burner was cracked and flooded, so am experiencing some soot residue on the lava rocks for now.

This is a great burner. The flame is much better then my previous burner. The patio was too cold in the winter with the old burner. I think this one will be much better.

Love our burner! We recently went from wood burner to gas and absolutely love it! This burner does exactly what customer service said it would and gives a more realistic looking burn.

This shape is nice and puts out plenty of heat.

What to Consider When Building a Gas Fire Pit:

  • Gas Supply - Before you begin designing your fire pit, first determine your gas supply
    • Both Natural Gas and Propane may be used - Supply Pressure and BTU ratings need to be regulated for both
    • For Natural Gas: Supply Pressure should be set between 3.5" - 7" Water Column
    • For Propane*: Supply Pressure should be set between 8" - 11" Water Column
    • *If using a 20 lb. propane tank, consider the maximum BTU output of a tank that size ranges from about 90,000 - 125,000 BTU† and a regulator must be used
    • †The BTU rating of the 20 pound tank limits your burner options to sizes that are rated for 125,000 or fewer BTU
 
  • Fire Pit Burner - The shape and size of your fire pit burner can be choosed after determining your gas supply
    • Choose a burner that's at least 6" smaller than the inside dimension of your enclosure - that's 3" between the edge of the burner and the inside edge of the pit
 
  • Fire Pit Pan - Recommended for use with all fire pit burners, but required for use in propane applications
    • A pan can be flat or "bowl" style in order to accommodate your construction - it should be installed at least 3-4" below the top surface of your enclosure
    • The burner pan separates the air mixer from the burner in propane applications, but in all constructions it helps with water drainage and ventillation
 
  • Flange Extension - In many cases, the shut-off valve will be located inside the fire pit - if your enclosure walls are thicker than 3" it may be necessary to use a flange extension and a longer key
 
  • Ventilation - For all fire pit burners, adequate ventilation is required
    • The recommended amount of ventilation is 36in² - or (2) 18in² vents on two opposing sides to create proper airflow
 
  • Installation Collars - Are designed to simplify the installation of a fire pit pan
    • Our flexible installation collars can bend for round enclosures, and can be anchored in with concrete screws
 
  • Fire Media - Is the final step to finishing a gas fire pit
    • Both lava rock and fire glass may be used to complete your fire pit, the choice between the two is purely aesthetic
