Product Overview

Hearth Products Controls Electronic Ignition Gas Fire Pit Kit, Round Bowl Pan combines high quality construction with innovative technology to complete your gas fire pit project. The unique Hot Surface Ignition (EI) design allows for remote electronic ignition using either the ON/OFF or HI/LO remote control. The innovative flame sensing system features a pilot light and thermocouple that work to monitor the presence of flames and will automatically close the gas valve if the flames are extinguished. The penta shaped (except 13SSEI models) burner is constructed from premium 304 stainless steel; each burner features staggered burner ports, a 1/2" (or 3/4" for HC) female gas inlet, and is neatly machine welded to produce a seamless and durable product. Burners and pans are also backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty from HPC.

This burner kit is designed for both natural gas and propane applications, the burner will come assembled to the round bowl pan, which measures 2.5" deep, and has a 1.3" rim around the top; other measurements indicate the inner dimension of the pan. Also assembled will be the necessary hard piping for the sealed control box; propane units will include a wire mesh spider guard to keep spiders from clogging the gas line. This unit can be purchased as a 120 VAC unit with a standard three-prong plug-in for use in a GFI outlet. Alternatively, a 24 VAC unit requires an external power supply to operate (sold separately; SKU: 311).

The "ON/OFF" variation of this burner kit will require an external switch, timer, or optional remote (SKU: 578-C) to operate, while a remote control is included for the "HI/LO" variation. The "HI/LO" version of this burner kit is also compatible with the HPC smartphone app for added convenience. HI/LO units offer two flame height selections for user customizability. The "HI" setting offers maximum flame height and power, while the "LO" setting cuts the flame by 40 percent. In addition, the phone app allows on/off, timer, and troubleshooting functionality.

I like the craftsmanship of the product..most importantly is ready for use just plug it in..

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
      • *Do not use a burner rated for greater than 125,000 BTU with a 20-pound propane tank.
 
  • Fire Pit Burner - The shape and size of your fire pit burner can be choosed after determining your gas supply
    • Choose a burner kit based off of the inside dimension of your enclosure - the fire pit pan will be 6" larger than the burner to provide at least 3" between the edge of the burner and the inside edge of the pit
 
  • Fire Pit Pan - Included with all of HPC's preassembled fire pit kits
    • 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
    • An external shut off valve is not required with this kit, but may be an option for added safety
 
  • 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

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.
