Do you have a similar valve kit that will work with LPG? If not, can this one be converted to LPG?

Is this the model with the rear inlet and outlet?

Answer:This is indeed the model of Maxitrol valve that has the inlet and outlet on the back side of the valve, adjacent to one another.

I would like to take this kit to Italy and have it connected to an existing natural gas line. Does this kit come with an ash pan? Is there a longer hose available, maybe 3-4 feet? Are connectors available in NPTF threads to connect to the existing gas line?

Answer:This kit is actually just the modulating valve, pilot assembly, and flexible gas line. A burner pan must be separately purchased to go with the unit. We do offer a complete system that uses the same modulating valve, but includes a burner pan and log grate as well. We also offer longer gas supply lines that can work with the kit. The size needed will depend on the width of the fireplace or opening that you plan on installing the set into.
Our products are designed with an NPT cut to each inlet. As such, thread seal compound or gas rated teflon must be used to seal each connection. An adapter would be needed if the incoming gas supply line is cut to NPTF thread specs.
