Fire Pit Components

A gas fire pit has several components, including the burner and pan, burner media, the ignition and control system, and the exterior enclosure. Each one should be selected to create the beautiful custom fire pit that will enhance your outdoor living space and provide the focal point for your next gathering of friends or family. Whether you like a more traditional look or want to create something quite modern, quality components are the key to a long-lasting installation.

Do I need refractory cement if I'm planning to use a 1' x 2' stainless steel fire pit propane burner and make my own fire pit? Will regular cement withstand the heat of my burner?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on June 17, 2013

Answer:
In almost all cases, it is not necessary to use refractory cement when building the enclosure for your fire pit. However before we can determine this you will need to know the BTU output of the burner that you will be using and how close will the burner tube physically be to the surrounding cement top?

I replaced the ignitor assembly of my firepit's Honeywell electronic control and now the pilot keeps going out. Is there a blowout box to protect the pilot from getting oxygen starved?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on June 18, 2013

Answer:
We do offer a blowout box that could be fitted to your existing pilot assembly. The part is the Hearth Products Controls Blowout Box Assembly - For HWI Series Fire Pit Burner Kits. This part is usually used for Hearth Products Controls hot wire ignitors, but it is adaptable to other brands.

We are purchasing a Sojoe firepit and the outer dimensions are 32 inches. We need to be able to place a metal cover over it to make sure the fire is out after use (it is for a public facility, not my backyard). I cannot find a full metal cover anywhere, only screens. Do you know of any such protection and if not for Sojoe, do any other companies make something like that?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 31, 2013

Answer:
While we do offer a pair of solid fire pit covers, they are intended to be used with masonry or stone fire pit enclosures and are highly decorative. An example is the Hearth Products Controls Aluminum Fire Pit Cover with Copper Finish - 32 Inch x 10 Inch. For your application, it is likely a better option to have a cover fabricated by a local metal shop. I apologize that I do not have any other options.

I have a gas line running to a Corten Steel Firepit and want to create a gas fire element. What parts do I need?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on April 8, 2013

Answer:
For most applications, a base pan, burner ring, shutoff valve, and decorative media will be needed. However, you will need to determine the diameter of the it, if you want match lighting, manual ignition or an electric ignition of the system.

I'm constructing an outdoor propane fire table and I'm looking for a flame control unit. Can you tell me what the main differences between the HPC FPSPPK Flame Sensing System - Match Lit system and the HPC FPP Manual Spark Flame Sensing System are? Which would you recommend?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on September 4, 2013

Answer:
The primary difference between these two items is the ignition of the pilot. While the FPSPPK must be match lit, the FPPK uses spark ignition, allowing you to light the pilot without removing the blowout box.

Both units us flame recognition as a safety feature and carry the same flow capacity.

Is there such a thing as a manual control valve for adjusting flame height in a fire pit? I'm planning to install a NG pit and would like to adjust flame height.
By eFireplaceStore on June 30, 2014

Answer:
Most outdoor manual valves that use a pilot assembly are configured for on/off operation only, with no ability to vary flame height. A simple manual control valve, such as the Hearth Products Controls Decorative Brass Straight Manual Key Valve Kit can control flow to the burner, but only if the burner being used is a match light type.
