Default Gas Burners with Love TS and Pilot Light Demo

There are a lot of stands being built with the Love TS controllers with gas burners and pilot lights.

I just finished assembly this weekend on my stand with this setup and thought I would share a video of the Love switches in action so you can see them working.

If anyone in the planning stages has any questions, feel free.

Great looking job, nice to see that you have all the right components for a safe burner control system for your new system, hope this sets the standard for burner control.

Well done! Make me want to tinker with my non-automated system.

A follow up on this...

Was doing some testing last night. Put 5 gallons in the HLT, wanted to boil it, transfer it via pumps to get things cleaned up and make sure all my connections were tight. I also wanted to see what sort of wind I could brew in and maintain pilot lights and burners. Cold windy temps notwithstanding, I wanted to see what the pilots could hold up to.

I watched it for a while and temp was approaching 200. I went inside to refill my glass, when I came out I sat back in my chair and noticed the temp was still at 198. My control box indicated that the solenoid valve was still open (power indicator light was on), so I looked and the burner wasnt lit and the pilot was out. The pilot safety valve had closed off the gas and my burner went out.

It was a windy night and the safety valve did exactly what I wanted it to. I did have to open the pilot valve a little more to get a little stronger pilot, but after I did that, it lasted throughout my testing.

Lesson learned - If, no WHEN, you add a pilot safety valve get one with an adjustable pilot so you can increase the strength of the pilot if needed. Especially if you brew outside.

Have you changed out the orifices in the pilot burners?, looks like they are the Nat. gas ones as the flame is yellow tipped.
