The Hurricane Burner can be purchased as a natural gas burner (natural gas orifice installed) or a low pressure propane burner (Hurricane Burner, restrictor plate and screw (no stand) - Burners - Equipment). As a low pressure propane burner it is designed to work with a low pressure propane (<11 WC). The Hurricane Burner in conjunction with a low pressure propane regulator will work just fine. As a matter of fact I can lock my strike or sparge water within a degree of my desired temperatures. Remember as I said before Pressure and volume are independant. I think the answer depends a lot on your supply. I think that a large quantity of propane at low pressure will make the same BTU's as a lesser volume of propane at high pressure. To draw an analogy it is similar to electrical power: 10 amps x 1 volt=100 watts while 1 amp x 10 volts=100 watts. It will depend to a large degree on the supply to the burners.

Thanks for posting this info. This definitely makes it easier for me to understand this type of stuff.

I have a question regarding the pressure into the valve: On page 4 of the linked pdf file, the diagram of the valve shows a "pressure regulator adjustment". What is this used for? If you had two of these valves connected to a gas manifold at a higher pressure, would these adjust the incoming pressure to the valves to the correct 11"WC/.5 psi pressure? I was thinking of having two of these setups to control HLT and MLT temps, like this.

Thanks in advance.

I can't find the 390868-1 part anywhere on patriots web site. Who makes it?

Default Recomendation for a Low poressure propane burner that works with a vr8200a2132

Hi,

I'm a newbie and I'm trying to build an HERMS setup with 15 gallons kegs.

I have bought a Honeywell vr8200a2132 but I'm really confused about what burner I must buy.

I will use it in low pressure propane, because I have not Natural Gas at home.

I would like to buy a not heavy burner, because I live in Lima-Peru and I must order it via Internet (the sipment of a 16 Lb burner would cost more that the burmer itself...).

I think that a Jet burner could be light and powerfull, which one could work with my vr8200a2132?

Thanks for the post Guy,
I'm working on a new build for myself and guess I'd need one of the Y8610U kits per burner. Or is there a way to use one kit plus other parts for the other two burners tied into the one kit?

Thanks, Kevin

This kit is designed to work with a single burner. The controller for the kit can only control one valve and have one igniter/sensor connected to it. I am curious why you need to control all three burners? I can understand the HLT and the MT, but why would you need to control the boil kettle?

OK, so I have my new HLT, 75 gallon stainless tank with a thermo-well. In order to heat with LP I get one these kits. My burner is a high pressure burner I pulled out of a Hotsey steam washer. It really goes! The question I have is about the kits heat tolerance. When this burner is heating everything up it will get very warm next to the burner. The specs talk about a 168 degree limit. I am afraid I will melt this puppy. Advice?

These kits are not meant for high pressure propane, they are for Low pressure propane 11" WC or natural gas. I do not think the valves operate correctly for higher pressure.

That said, the ignition module would be mounted remotely so heat should not be a problem.

OK, so are there ignition units that work with high pressure?
