Help with direct fired automation 1.5 bbl system
« on: Today at 02:29:35 PM »
I'm looking for help in figuring out how to automate my 1.5 bbl propane fired system.  I'm using BG14 burners with 30 psi regulator.  I have a PID temperature controller to activate the gas valve, but I haven't had success getting auto-ignition to work reliably. 

Attempts so far:
* pilot light - blows out when the valve is shutoff
* 12v hot surface igniter - worked for a few minutes, but the longer it ran, the less reliable the auto-ignition. 

Any ideas would be appreciated.
