Q:Hi, I have an antique magic chef/maytag stove from the 1930-40's, and the size of the orifice seems to be the same size we are looking for to convert the stove from natural to propane, but we are confused about the hole sizes. Some web sites have lp sized at#72, while others say sizes #56-52 are for lp, while other sites have these sizes listed for natural gas usage. We are wanting to buy the conversion pieces but are confused on which size for the conversion to lp. Thanks!
A:It sounds like this may be a residential application. The size of orifice dictates the amount of power in BTUs for the unit. Often times these orifices are drilled to size for each application. I would recommend consulting with a professional gas technician to best identify you specific needs.
Q:I've got a APW WYOTT GRILL MODEL GCRB-36H. It is natural gas now but I WANT TO CONVERT IT TO LP GAS. The label calls for a 50 drill size orifice. Which orifice will fit it? and do I need a hood for it also? or will the natural gas hood fit? Please let me know soon. thank you!!
A:Thank you for your question. Considering the amount of detail unique to your needs, and the application of gas connections, I would recommend consulting a technician to best fit your conversion needs. Here are a couple of our #50 size orifices:
Q:I am converting back from LP to natural gas, long story, anyway I have a Whirlpool stove and the manual calls for a # 49 and # 52 orifice hood for the natural gas. Would these be the same as on the web site for gas or LP?
A:Yes, this size orifice will suffice for your needs. What matters most with these orifices is the size, as that is what adjusts the flow and BTUs of either gas.
Q:I am in need of a #52 for LP, however; I need it to be 1" long. It is for a Rustic gas stove, currently Natural gas equipped.
A:My, try this orifice instead: https://www.etundra.com/restaurant-parts/gas-parts/orifices/cecilware-f177a-number-52-orifice/.
Q:I am needing to get a Brinkman smoker to get to a much higer temperature, about 450f. I not smoking meat but rather
A:I am sorry, Brinkman is a residential brand that we do not carry. I recommend contacting the manufacturer about how to reach a higher temperature with your unit.
Q:Will this orifice work for a Hotpoint gas range model number RGB530DETBB?
A:I am sorry, we do not carry Hotpoint prats. We only sell commercial parts and it looks like your stove is for residential use. I recommend calling the manufacturer to get the correct part.
Q:what is the differance between a natural gas orface and a propane orface ?
A:Basically what you're doing when going from natural gas to LP is changing to a smaller orifice to allow for the higher pressure supplied by the 'bottled' gas. Natural gas supplies typically run around a pressure of 5.5 inches water column, while LP runs at twice that pressure, averaging around 11 inches. The orifice through which the gas travels to the burner must be smaller to accommodate this difference.
