Orifice size is different on lp and natural gas pressures to operate at are also.Some can be switched easily others cant .Id look at btu rating to see if burner big enough to heat the size boiler your using.If both lp and ng btu ratings are nor listed on tank next time your at store look at ratings on lp model same size . However if ya change orifice size use regulator and hose like off a gas grill ya can make it work.Hack wrote:Is there any advantage to building one of these with a burner from a hot water tank? I've got an old gas hot water tank I was going to get rid of and could use the burner from. It's a natural gas tank but I'd have to run propane on it. As long as I use a propane regulator will that be fine?
Most home cook stoves / dryers can be used for either by adjustments or using changeover kits.Water heaters around here are usually one ore the other.Barney Fife wrote:Propane has a higher BTU content than NG, so for home use, NEVER swap one for the other, but for one of these burners, it may actually be an advantage. You'll have to adjust the air a bit to get the flame nice and glue, but that should prove easy.
