The Best Gas Fire Pit Burner

What makes the patented Penta burner, by HPC, the best for gas fire pits in Denver with a round opening.

The Penta burner is a unique gas fire pit burner designed to provide the most realistic and fullest flame for a round gas fire pit opening. This star shaped burner was created by HPC to offer a new and innovative design that would piggyback off of the success of traditional round burners. The Penta burner has quickly become the most popular shape of any burner and has replaced all of our custom fire pits where we traditionally would have used a round burner.

The most realistic flame pattern is really the calling card of the Penta burner. The combination of the unique star shape with the varied burner port locations offers an unparalleled flame presence to that is superior to traditional round rings in both height and fullness—which makes it a great choice for log sets and especially Fire Glass.

Drilled, Not Punched Burner Ports in the burner ring are located in a 3, 9, and 12 o’clock pattern around the burner tube to provide a broad and even looking flame without the concentric flame pattern of a round ring. Drilled burner ports ensure no debris is left behind in the burner’s tubing—debris can cause an undesirable whistling noise.

A raised center hub is designed to prevent any water from entering the gas line. This burner is designed to be installed with the burner ports facing up, so the raised gas inlet hub ensures that what little amount of water may accumulate in those holes will not travel back into the gas line.
