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 Burners 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 (or 3/4 Inch for HC) 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 can be used for either natural gas or propane 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.

Features

  • Stainless Steel Construction - Heavy duty 304 stainless steel guards against rusting and ensures a long lasting product
  • Standard & High Capacity - Burner rings are available in both 1/2" and 3/4" female NPT inlet sizes
  • Natural Gas or Propane - Burner kit is NG ready, with LP conversion kit available
  • Raised Central Hub - Gas inlet is raised above the concentric rings to prevent water from entering the valve or gas line
  • Includes - Penta burner and propane conversion kit (if propane option is selected)

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.

It is still in the bag since I haven/t gotten a plumber on laying the gas line

We converted an all inclusive kit designed for propane to natural gas. This ring is solid and it’s nice to finally get something that’s built to last.

This was a GREAT choice for us. I replaced a traditional three ring circular 36" burner with the Penta shape and wow... what a difference. The flame is big and looks natural. Definitely worth the little extra for the Penta shape burner.

PERFECT!!! Our fire pit is 32" and we got a 12" Punta fire burner. We wanted a log look so we put the burner in the center, layer the 'logs' up like a real camp fire, put the dark lava rock around the outside (to the brick) and it works beautifully. When we got it we were concerned about the size being so small but it looks very realistic. (real fires prohibited) Everyone says it looks awesome!

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.

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
