HPC Round Fire Pit Insert Torpedo Burner – Electronic Ignition

The EI Series from HPC Fire is their top-of-the-range ignition system that provides the highest safety levels and ease of use. Several features set it apart.

• The presence of the Safety Pilot flame ensures the main burner gas will flow, keeping the fire pit alight. However, if the flame is blown out, the gas supply shuts down preventing a potentially hazardous build-up or pooling of gas.
• The system will then automatically commence the Start sequence, relighting your fire pit. All this without any assistance or input from the fire pit user.


What are the Options when ordering

There are a range of sizes and a variety of options to ensure that you end up with the ideal fire pit kit for your requirements.

Select Your Size

Available in six sizes: 13″, 19″, 25″, 31″, 37″, and 43″.
Please note that the sizes reflect the internal diameter of the pan (the base) and do not include the 1.3” lip,

Select Your Gas

The kits are available in either Natural Gas or Propane versions. Please note that the EI Series is not for use with small LP Tanks and must utilize permanent, fixed piping for fuel supply.

Select Your Ignition

What is the difference between the two HPC Electronic Ignition Fire Pit models?

On/Off – This model allows your fire pit to be switched On and Off by a wall switch, your whole house system, or by Remote Control which in this case is an optional extra and only available for the 120 VAC models.

High/Low  – Included with this model is a Smart Remote which allows for the flame height to be set to either High or Low. The Low setting creates a 45% reduction in flame height. The remote also receives information from the fire pit to advise users of the fire pit status (flashing LED).  Although this system cannot be used with your whole house system it can be controlled via the HPC Bluetooth App. The built-in antenna enables a reliable connection to Apple and Android phones and allows for control of your fire pit from as far away as 20 feet.  The Bluetooth Smart App incorporates a timer, troubleshooting codes, total operational hours, and internal temp monitoring.

Select Your Voltage

The EI range is available in 120VAC or 24VAC versions. 24VAC is typically used poolside or with other lower voltage requirements.

A Class II 24VAC, 4 amp, 100 W transformer must be used to power the fire pit and be able to be switched on and off from a remote location to allow for easy access or emergency. The Fire Pit will not perform properly if the power supply rating is below 100W or the wire size is too small. HPC highly recommends the HPC SEBCO 24vac Power Supply Transformer available in the Accessories and Components section of this website.

Operating Instructions:

Once installed, it is remarkably easy to use.

Start-Up: Turn the Unit on using the wall switch, remote control, or App depending on your model and setup. When the ON command is received, the system completes initial safety checks and then starts the flow of pilot gas. After 5 seconds, the 24v Hot surface Igniter glows, igniting the pilot flame. When the system confirms the pilot flame is present, the main burner gas will flow and be ignited by the pilot flame.

Operation: The system monitors flame status, internal temperatures/voltages, and other safety parameters. If flame loss does occur, the system will turn off all gas flow and then restart by automatically commencing the Start sequence.
Turning off: This can be done via the wall switch, remote control, App, or whole house system depending on your setup.

Recommendations, Optional Extras, and Links to the products on The Magic Of Fire

  • HPC recommends installing a wall switch with remote-controlled units as it creates an additional layer of protection and security. With the switch off,  the device cannot operate. If a child gets a hold of a remote or the frequency is synced with another device, the unit cannot function as long as the switch is off.  For maximum safety, we recommend the HPC Commercial Grade Emergency Stop as it can be also locked into the off position!
  • The On/Off Remote Control which is an optional add-on.
  • The HPC SEBCO 24vac Power Supply Transformer recommended by HPC for use with the 24VAC Option
  • Several timers are available, and even a hybrid Emergency Stop Button/Timer. These allow the user to set a designated burn time and automatically turn off the appliance once the time has expired.
