<<S.I.T. Makes those Pilots FYI.>>
Thank you, JTP10181.
I'd like to discuss the SIT pilot burner that is increasingly common these days, featuring a wire clip that can be removed which allows the top of the pilot burner to be removed easily.
From that point, an allen wrench allows the pilot orifice to be removed easily for cleaning.
I've found reassembly more difficult, especially if the clip bends or breaks.
It's a worthwhile idea to make pilot burners in fireplaces more easily cleaned without having to do a lot of disassembly to get at them. But I think these need some refinement still.
I'd like to get a supply of the wire clips ---- they should have a bowl of those at fireplace distributors for free would be my preference.
I think IU am correct that the NG pilot orifice is stamped .0030 while the propane orifice is stamped .0036, I've found a propane orifice in a NG fireplace already, making the flame much too small.
Which parts for this burner are you or would you consider carrying? The top burner cap, pilot orifice and clips are the choices that occur to me offhand.
Are you finding distributors that have these parts readily available?
