$3,640.23 $3,831.82 Regular price
The HPC Fire Inspired™ SST Torpedo™ burner produces the largest, warmest CSA Certified flame on the market.
The patented Penta burner is an HPC original best-seller and for good reason. This stainless steel, flat pan design was launched in 2004… and today is still the most popular flat pan style. Customers praise this round bowl insert as emulating the natural shape of a wood fire. This version is decked out with both new premium upgrades: Torpedo burners and bluetooth electronic ignition control built in so you can easily adjust the flame height from your smart devices.
The penta round flat has an economical design and is meant for a recess mount within an enclosure.
The new innovative Torpedo nozzles create a taller, more robust flame similar to that of a natural wood fire (see below) or on Youtube. The perfect mixture of air and fuel to create maximum flame without sacrificing fuel efficiency. This patented welded stainless steel design drains water and won't rust. Covered by HPC's no-nonsense hassle-free lifetime warranty.
As for safety features, HPC Fire is known as the industry standard. Their burners include flame sensing technology, which automatically shuts off the gas supply if the flame is extinguished, and emergency gas shut-off valves for quick and easy gas shut-off in the event of an emergency
This burner can be converted to propane and if desired, comes with a propane conversion kit, which includes an air mixer, coupler, and nipple. When installing the burner, make sure it's at least 6" smaller than the inside dimensions of your enclosure, and that the burner ports face upwards.
How to choose between a Bowl Pan or Flat Pan Insert?
Let’s start with bowl style pan, or spun pan. HPC Fire Inspired™ bowl pans are made through a manufacturing style called spinning. Metal spinning does not involve removal of material, as in conventional wood or metal turning, but forming (molding) of sheet material 18ga. 304 stainless steel over an existing shape.
This results in a much more ridged finished product than a flat pan as it has the sides and the lip for added rigidity and does not rely on the burner for rigidity. HPC Fire bowl style pans also incorporate a 1-3/8” lip, or collar that is perfect for a floating installation into an opening.
The bowl style pans are perfect for glass media as well, due to the sides and the cleaner install with the lip of the pan. The bowl pans will not hold water due to the ¼” weep holes in the pans. All of the HPC Fire CSA certified appliances: electronic ignition (EI), push-button flame sense (FPPK), and match-lit (MLFPK) are available with the bowl style pan.
As you look through bowl style sizing keep in mind that the size of the pan reflects the inside diameter (ID) of the pan, and does not include the 1-3/8” lip.
The flat pans are a little more economical than the bowl style pan, but they do not have a lip for easy installation.
The installer must find a way to support the flat pan within the opening, with support lips, rebar or supports on the sidewall of the opening. Because the flat pans do not have sides or a lip they rely on the burner being mounted to the pan to provide rigidity the pan needs to support the added weight. Any type of media can be used with a flat pan including glass, but the gap between the edge of the pan and the opening must be within a 1/8” to keep the glass from falling below the pan, so the larger the pieces of media the better for a flat pan. As above, all of our flat pans also have ¼” weep holes to mitigate any water that may stand on the pan. Due to heat from the flame, the flat will deflect a bit as they are burned but this hidden by the media being used over the burner. Each flat pan is cut out to size from a sheet of 18ga. 304 sheet of stainless steel. Keep in mind, all of HPC flat pans are cut ¼” smaller than the listed size. For example, our 36” flat pans measure 35-3/4” to help with perfect sizing.
Aside from Bluetooth hi/lo, there are two other options for ignition depending on your application and preferences: (1) Match Lit and (2) FPPK Push Button and (3) Electric On/Off.
If you have a fire pit that does not have access to electricity, the FPPK push button start is the way to go.
The most technologically advanced option is the electronic ignition, with the option to control via a fully integrated mobile app. The fire pit communicates directly with the app allowing you to control everything about the flame from a smart device. Safety is just as important, and the fire pit will also send safety notifications in real time.
