Testing the burner

Posted by
Don Levesque (Saint John, Canada) on 15 October 2011 in Sport & Recreation and Portfolio.

The burner runs on propane gas which is stored in the basket in small cylinder. Between the cylinder and the burner, there is a control valve that sets the amount of gas pressure that goes to the burner. These valves can be adjusted.

For the propane to reach the burner, a pilot light is lit and heats up a small rod. Once the rod reached the right temperature, the propane is released to the burner. No pilot light, no gas.

On the burner there is an hand valve that the pilot opens to get the propane to flow to the burner which is lit by the pilot light. When the pilot releases the valve, the gas shuts off and the flame dies.
