Hi guys Ive been piecing together a 10 gal direct fired rims for the last few months. I found a valve that is much cheaper than the asco valves on ebay take a look and let me know if you think they will suffice. I plan on using 3 of them in conjunction with 3 hurricane burners with the natural gas regulator converters. Let me know!
Here are the ascos

There are many of us who use the ebay valves for gas control. They work just fine.

I would personally shy away from the valves in the second link, and I would not use an ASCO 8219G094 for natural gas service.

How much pressure are you providing to the valves?

For a 1/2" valve have you looked at the ASCO 8030G069? (0-8 psig)

They list for $168 brand new, and are from a manufacturer who has been around for over 100 years.

If you need high pressure the 8210G075 is good for 0-50 psig.

These list for $184 each.

As far as I knew natural gas was low pressure. That's why I hose the low pressure valve. Correct me if I'm wrong. The reason for choosing those over the ascos is strictly because of the price difference. 120 per valve is pretty steep price difference.
