What is the difference between Propane burners and natural gas? I have propane installed.

Answer:Due to different characteristics propane requires an air mixer just before the gas supply reaches the main burner assembly. This air mixer ensures a proper metering of air to propane to ensure a proper flame. While propane uses an air mixer, natural gas uses a fuel injector just before the burner assembly. The other difference between the two is that propane uses a vermiculite media spread over the burner pan, while natural gas will use sand spread over the burner pan.
