Round Drop-In Pan with Spark Ignition Kit

We all have different ideas of how we want our custom gas fire pit to look, and what materials it will be made from. Common to all fire pits though, are the burners and a method to fit them. Utilizing an American Fireglass Round Drop-In Pan with Spark Ignition Kit has to be one of the most easily installed systems available.

Why Use A Drop In Tray?

There are three good reasons to use a tray with an integral burner in your fire pit.

  • If you are using Propane to fuel your system then it is generally considered best practice to use a tray, and may in fact be a requirement of local codes. Why? Propane is heavier than air, so once it is released through the gas ports of the burner, its natural tendency is to sink lower. The tray helps contain the propane gas, reducing the risk of pockets of unburnt gas collecting within the fire pit structure.
  • It is very simple to install a tray. During the construction of your fire pit structure, a ’shelf’ can be built upon which the tray can sit, and that’s it. All the plumbing is hidden out of sight below the tray, and it is very easy to remove for maintenance.

  • The tray is a great container for your fire pit media, be it fire glass or lava rock, holding it securely, and not allowing it to spill over. It also greatly reduces the amount required, which also helps keep the overall cost down.

What The Kits Consists Of:

The Tray and Burner are manufactured from 304 Grade Stainless Steel and are designed specifically for the rigors of outdoor installation.

The Gas Connection Kits are supplied with two 4′ lengths of whistle-free gas hoses attached to either side of a Safety Shut Off Valve. The valve is supplied with a Chrome Cover Plate and Chrome Key.

The Natural Gas version is supplied with 1/2″ flair connection ends and a 1/2″ flair to 1/2″ pipe adapter.

The Propane versions are supplied with 3/8″ flair connection ends and a 3/8″ flair to 1/2″ pipe adapter, an Air Mixer Valve, and a Propane Gas Bottle Regulator.

Please note this Propane system is only for use with Propane Bottled Gas, not large domestic Propane tanks.

Round Drop-In Pan with Spark Ignition Kit Specs:

These kits are available in two standard sizes 19″ and 25″ in diameter. The following chart provides you with all the specifications you need for each size, including the BTU rating of the burner, and the recommended amount of Fire Glass your selected tray will require.

19″ Diameter Tray –  12″ Burner – 92,000 BTU hr/max – Manufacturer recommended quantity of fire glass 30 lbs Cutout Size is 20″ diameter

25″ Diameter Tray –  18″ Burner – 147,000 BTU hr/max – Manufacturer recommended quantity of fire glass 50 lbs Cutout Size is 26″ diameter

The Push Button Spark Ignition System

A battery-powered Push Button Spark Ignition System means that there is no need to be running a mains electricity cable out to your fire pits location. Simply bolt the spark probe vertically onto the base of the tray in the provided location, and connect the supplied cable to the back of the push button unit you have fitted into your custom-made ‘control panel’. For convenience, we recommend installing the push button next to the Shut Off Key Valve supplied with your kit. Turn on the gas, push on the button, and you have fire! No matches blowing out, or damp tapers failing to light. This is the civilized way to light your fire pit!

A great way to protect your fire pit burner and tray and extend its lifespan is to keep it covered when not in use. Fabric covers work well but are a little bulky and awkward to use on a regular basis. American Fireglass has manufactured a range of Stainless Steel Covers that are tailor-made to sit neatly over your fire pit pan protecting it from the worst ravages of the weather.

American Fire Glass Stainless Steel, Round, Fire Pit Lid

If you are using an American Fire Glass Wind Guard you do not have to remove it to use the fire pit lid as these lids are designed to fit inside the wind guard.

All that’s remaining is to select your favorite fire glass to finish your fire pit project.

Pro Tips To Help You Get The Best From Your Fire Pit Kit

– Ensure you have sufficient gas pressure to ‘power’ your burner’s BTU rating

– Don’t forget to provide ventilation in your fire pit structure, at least 16 sq. in. on two opposing sides

– If using Propane ensure the venting is at the lowest point in the structure

– With Propane it is better to use 1/2″ size fire glass

– If possible set your drop in tray at least 2″ below the top of your fire pit structure ( to avoid the wind extinguishing your flame )

– Re: Above, if not possible use a fire pit wind guard

Consider using a matching Stainless Steel Lid to keep rainwater out of the fire pit tray

– Use a qualified Gas Technician

– Check your local codes regarding gas fire pit usage, it may have to be inspected and licensed
