    Question Kiln burner query

    Hi everyone,
    My partner and I purchased a gas kiln recently. The piping/tubing and fittings for the gas burner are quite old and we'd like to tidy them up a bit and replace some of the older parts. Does anyone know where I can find out about purchasing replacement parts, or if a gas fitter is required to make changes to them? My partner wasn't sure on regulations in that regard, and being a kiwi, I'm not familiar with such things over here in Aus!

    Thanks!

    On the Metal Work forums there are two members (AndrewOC and Corin) who work for a company called Gameco.
    Game are professional gas equipment suppliers and supply stuff for kilns and forges etc.
    I suggest you contact either of those two members.

    If you are doing this for professional purposes you will have to get it done professionally and even if you aren't professional I believe it's like electrical work still illegal to do this yourself.
    A professional gas fitter will be able to do all the proper tests etc and write a new certificate for the installation that are required after fitting new parts etc.
    For example any insurance you would have on your property would be invalid if something went wrong.

    Thank you very much Bob, we thought that might be the case, but weren't entirely sure. I will contact Andrew or Corin about our requirements.
