Propane Burners

Recommended Posts

I bought a propane burner and wondered whether it would be appropriate for a small raku kiln (modified 45Gal drum)

 

This burner is rated at 500,000 BTU/Hr. It was on sale for for $60.00 Cnd regular $80.00 And if 500,000 isn't enough I could buy two???

Glen;

You probably want to get a regulator as well from your propane supplier. Looks like a gauge about 2 inches in diameter. Screws into your tank, then the hose comes from that. Might be reverse threaded so go easy with the wrench. I agree with Neil. Have fun.

It's a go! Have fun. I set my regulators at 3.5 lbs. I fire with 2 burners but I have a large raku kiln. It is in my gallery.

I am having perfect weather for Raku at the moment.

Make sure the regulater is a high pressure regulator( usually 1 to 10 lbs pressure) not the type for a BBQ or fireplace.

Marcia, I havent built one yet but I was kinda thinking a 45 gallon drum lined with fiber?

Hi Marcia

 

I'm having trouble sourcing a high pressure propane regulator... any ideas where I might find one? Yours has a gauge I assume?

 

Thanks

I would not get one without a gauge. I would look for one more like this example, but in lower pressure. Although this does state 0-70 psi I would be leary of one that had such a large range so fine .5 and .25 PSI adjustments may be hard.

Thanks Brian I'm glad I asked!
