Industrial Size PC and Propane Burner
    #1438810 - 04/08/03 11:47 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

this is a query about equipment that may be
more familiar to folks in this forum than others...

at least that's my rationale for posting in here,
feel free to move as necessary.

now that we got that out of the way, I found this
on craigslist the other day:



please note the ryobi hand sander there for
scale, this is an old All American 941.

(holds 18 quarts or so...)

anywho, this thing also came with this burner:



the seller said that it could run off of natural
or propane.

not sure if I buy that.

also, check the end:



bad picture, but there is this cap on the end,
that really doesn't seem to serve much
purpose, the tip in the center is not threaded,
which makes me wonder how or what this is
supposed to connect to...

here's the head of the burner:



I wonder, can I rest the pc directly on this?

can this be run while sitting on a concrete
porch or garage floor?

or does all this need to be put on some sort
of rack, with the burner raised above the ground
and the surface raised above it.

thanks for any input on the matter, the price
was irresistable but the fooker won't fit on
my stove it's so darned big!

Build a little tripod of sorts out of NON-FLAMMABLE material. I think it would be dangerous to sit the cooker directly on top of that.

it may be okay on concrete.. but i would build a stand.... concrete can pop if you put to much heat to it..


that is very nice btw.. how much was it.?

I'm still puzzled by the piping on the
burner itself.

the attatchments don't make sense...

anyone seen any such thing before?

natural gas or propane?

Hi,
you definately must use something to set the pc up off the burner with!
It's not for setting the cooker directly on. I would try with natural gas first as it is not as 'hot' a gas as propane is. the cup thingy on the end is the air adjuster. One turns it and it lets either more or less air into the mixture so that the gas burns just right. If one take the top cover off one's gas range you will see that the burners all have similar adjusters on the pipes.
The connector should be the pipe in the middle of the 'cup thingy'.
Also have you tested that old pressure cooker yet? sometimes the older ones do not seal properly, or the pressure guage does not work, or needs adjusting. do an engine search on pressure cokkers and look for a site that will tell you how to test your used cooker. good luck and be real carefull.
Athena.

take the burner to a Walmart(or some place like it) and look at the other burners they have.
it seems to look like the end of the other burners that I have seen.

you might just have to get a standard hose with a regulator and a propane tank to use the burner.

I'd build a rack...you don't want to sit the burner on the ground...and you don't want to put the pressure cooker on top of just the burner.
Go look and see what they have and how they are set up at a store bro.

this is how I would make the rack for the burner.
take bricks and lay them on the ground.
then put the burner on top of the bricks.
then lay bricks upward (several high) making walls...an edge to set the pressure cooker on.
then put the pressure cooker on top of the brick walls.
A mini oven so to speak.

hard to describe...if you want I'll make a diagram in PSP and post it for you.

nice find.
:grin:

definitely, be careful with that burner !
if you are unfamiliar with gas appliances, get a professional to help set it up .
or, just set the pc on a gas grill/BBQ .
my main concern is that propane is heaver then air, so if you are doing this in an enclosed space like a garage, and if there is a gas leak, you wont know it till the gas reaches the level of your nose . KABOOM !!

I showed it to a buddy, he does catering.

apparently they use similar assemblies
for outdoor events.

basically said the same thing about the
bricks.

we're going to get a propane tank and
the rest of the necessary attatchments
and fire this bad boy up proper.

I'll keep you posted on whether or not
the PC will hold pressure.

thanks for all the input, everyone.

(edit: added relevancy to opening sentence)

nice, can you tell me a little more about that
base and what the burner actually looks like?

do you have an air valve and a pressure valve
from the gas source?

(air valve for gas/air mixture adjustment)

how many cooks do you get on one tank of propane,
assuming that's what you are using?
