The fireplace below is a propane fireplace with a propane burner and remote control. We used a Clear Base Glass with Starfire Base Glass on top. Then we added:
Medium Amber Topping,
Yellow Amber Topper,
Steel Blue Topper,
Dark Red Orange Topper over the base glass. The controls were covered after the install was finished. If you look closely you can see the pilot light assembly.
The fire pit below is in the Palace of Qatar and this was commissioned for the King of Qatar. The fire pit is a propane/ butane fueled fire pit and it was installed by Gasco of Qatar. They didn't understand the glass so they opted to use lava rock. Now they (the King) have ordered the glass and if we can get the pictures we will post them.
We did propane for the King and there are no issues! Awesome marble!
The fire pit below was build by Mike Phillips ( a customer). First he ran a propane line to the fire pit area and then blocked his fire pit into shape. We use a FPPK (fire pit propane kit) in an aluminum pan 24" x 24" with a double 18" double stainless steel ring.The glass that was used was a Gray Base Glass
and Gray Reflective Base Glass
on top to add sparkle.
Below you can see the placement of the thermocouple and safety pilot light used for propane.
Below on the right side the controls were installed in the bricks.
The fireplace below belongs to Marcia and here is what we did to update her fireplace:
First here is what your fireplace may looks like now, nasty!
We reconfigure the pilot, burner, base plate, venturi and get it to burn properly.
Nice flames, then we continue.
If you look below we are showing you proper pilot light placement.
Paint is and you're done!
The glass that we used was a Starfire Base Glass, Bronze Rust Copper Base Glass and Bronze Reflective Base Glass on top.
If your fireplace does not work this easy or look this simple, then we didn't do it!
Let us help you make your fireplace work right and look good.
Here is the answer some of you think you know. (You don't!) These are Air Mixers, Venturis Carburetors.
These like a carburetor on any engine act as the air fuel mixture governor. Have you ever been behind an older car that smells funny? Wrong air mixture! Bad mechanic! The air mixers have to be calibrated not only to the valving but the burner as well. We have been building propane burners for several years now and we have never had an issue with any configuration that we have built, ever. It's the same as porting an engine for proper air flow. If you just STICK one of these on your burner then you may be giving us a call soon enough.
Here are a few pictures of the 1/2" and 3/4" air mixers, (40,000 to 400,000 btu mixers).
If you attach it and create back pressure, you will have a fire or an explosion, guaranteed. We are not trying to frighten you but to make you aware. We believe in safety first and we don't build systems without thermocouples and or pilot light systems, ever!
As you may have of seen on our "How Not To Do It Page" they still screw up no matter how hard they try. We are here only to help!
The Wine Barrel below was build by one of our newer dealers in Texas. Matt's Custom Welding. Contact us for information about Matt's wonderful work. We are going to be much more of Matt's work and look around his showroom in the pictures below. Many more projects to come.
There was a steel bowl installed using our propane system to burn our glass. They used Bronze Base Glass in the fire pit.
Another Wine Barrel Fire Pit with Cobalt Blue Base Glass. This was propane as well.
Typically you will burn at about 30,000 btu's. This will allow your 20 lb tank to last about 15 to 20 hours.
Now if you go TURBO! This is 100,000 btus. You want big fire? Here you go!
We don't do wimpy. That is for the competition, or if that is what they call themselves.
You want fire? You got it.Propane is not an issue, for us anyway.
The next fireplace is from Chris Ackopiantz in Palos Verdes California.
Chris lives in a condo complex with only wood burning fireplaces. Chris received permission from his complex to add a propane fed fireplace. Burning wood is not only dirty and nasty, it is very unhealthful as well.
Here are his pictures from beginning to end:
The glass he used was a:

Please be careful when inventing and or working with any explosive gasses.
There is one way to do it right, there are probably a few dozen ways on how to blow up propane. Did you see the story on how one young man was killed using a propane rocket? Would you like to know how to blow up your table? There is the correct way and an incorrect way.
