The B1 Sand B1 SSC, with a long pointed flame are used on straight short flame burners and immersion tube burners. P8S and P8SSC, with a wide relatively short flame , are used on spread head and large straight shot flame burners. The "sc" denotes "Single Coupled", that is, the burner head is drilled and tapped to allow for a thermocouple with 7/16 - 27 male connection.
Burners and/or pilot assemblies placed in an air stream must use a P8SSCA pilot burner. The "A" denotes an air shutter which is cupped over the venturi end so the pilot flame will not be blown out.
The B1SSC consists of a separate side entry venturi burner head to allow for 7/16"-27 male thermocouple connection. Comes complete with orifice, air shutter and lockrinq
Pilot burners are small burners used to light large burners when spark ignition or pilot lights are too "cold". Burning constantly or lighted prior to the main burners, they provide a long pointed or short and wide flame pattern depending on the application.
IMPORTANT: Whenever ordering pilots always specify the type of burner it will be used with and the type of gas and pressure to be used. In addition, because flame height is critical for good pilot burner operation and safety, a separate needle valve should always be used in the pilot burner gas supply
