Ron,

Awesome build, I'm building something similar, with banjo high pressure burners, and I was wondering if you did something to convert them to low pressure, b/c I thought you couldn't use the honeywell valve with a high pressure system.

Also what did you find out for the pressure regulator. I got a 0-30psi regulator, but it sounds like that won't work.

Anyway good luck with the build!

Hey Donnie,

I used LPG orifices and drilled them to get the BTU's that I wanted for each burner. Yes the Honeywell's do run on low pressure. 11" Water Column is what they need. I used a set of regulators like used on a house. One at the tank, and one at the brewery. There is also a single regulator that does both stages, typically used on RV's I think. I started with one of those, but the one I bought did not put out the BTU's I wanted. I had the others so I switched and just left it that way.

Your 0-30psi will put out way too much pressure, I would not even try it with the Honeywell's it will blow out diaphragms.

There are charts that tell what size to drill the orifices to get the desired BTU's. And if you need I can dig through and find out where I ordered the orifices. Just let me know.

Good luck, and enjoy the build.
