It's down to the wire now. I called the propane company to arrange installation when I mentioned that the kiln was previously fired with natural gas and that they would need to adjust the burners for propane...it was a conversation stopper. Apparently the propane company does not change the burners. Who does? I have to (sigh). Ok, so where are the burners located?
Another call to the ever patient people at Bailey Ceramics.
They do indeed have burner conversion kits. I need to provide the make/model of the kiln and approximately how old it is. Then, to be sure, they asked for a photo of the burner. "Uh...where is the burner?" I really appreciate that they do not laugh at or yell at me!! Instead they sent a diagram showing me exactly where to look and later a photo (see below). My wonderful husband came out to assist.
Here is what the burner looks like on my kiln and a photo of the natural gas burner orifice.
Here is how I found where my burner was (thank you to Mike at Baiely Ceramics):
The next step will be to install the proper burner to handle propane fuel. I will take photos to share~ just in case there is another person out there who knows absolutely nothing about gas kilns, but wants to learn.
And proof reading the posting it occurs to me that I did not take the orifice OUT to photograph it...I only exposed the orifice. So, I'll head out to the kiln shed later today to see how one takes the orifIice OUT of the burner. My mantra: It's okay to learn and grow, it's okay to not know everything, and it's okay to not be perfect.
