Torpedo Technology

HPC has developed several important technological advancements to address water-related issues caused by outdoor elements. All HPC Fire Features are made from commercial-grade stainless steel, which allows the units to withstand harsh weather conditions.

Each component in the product's design plays a critical role in ensuring its quality and functionality, from the pan construction to the use of a manifold. HPC fire pit pans are made with stainless steel and have strategically placed weep holes that facilitate drainage and prevent water from accumulating in the pan.

HPC burners feature a raised hub design with weep holes located at the ends to guide water downward and out toward the hand-drilled holes. The weep holes are approximately 3/32 of an inch and are tooled to ensure proper drainage. This HPC fire feature uses potting technology, which ensures that it meets the CSA and ANSI standards for outdoor use.

The HPC Torpedo Burner has several layers of protection against water damage. The potting material made of rubber prevents water from entering the product, while a layer of water-repellent dielectric grease adds further protection.

To protect against water damage, HPC uses a Manifold with a leg or sediment trap that guides water away from the valve and valve box. HPC's air mixer is located underneath the pan instead of on the surface, reducing the risk of water issues. HPC also installs valve box ventilation, which increases air movement and ventilation to keep the valve and valve box dry even during storms.
