I have the same question. They are expensive valves. Did you ever get an answer?

Cheers,

Duane

I think some guys have used these. I can't remember if it was for the Brutus or something similar.

Thanks for confirming what I thought. I saw a thread where they mentioned the part you posted.

Cheers mate

I did a standing pilot valve, I only have one since I am running a Brutus 2.0 but it is the same concept and it will only cost about $100 per automated burner. You have a safety measure built in with the pilot system, if the thermocouple on the pilot isn't lit it will not open the valve. I am running low pressure propane, and if you want to run high pressure the ones previously mentioned would probably work. My build is in my signature.

I've used these valves on my stand and they work well. But no safety mechanism as mentioned previously.
