Alexander Graham Bell once said, “The inventor looks upon the world and is not contented with things as they are. He wants to improve whatever he sees, he wants to benefit the world; He is haunted by an idea. The spirit of invention possesses him, seeking materialization. HPC is truly driven by the inventor spirit, striving for continuous improvement, offering the world modern day solutions that enrich their lives.

HPC’s latest innovation is the Universal Gas Orifice known as the UGO. The UGO originated with the desire to simplify and streamline consumer experiences. With hard work and dedication, the HPC team never lost sight of their goal, actualizing their concept and turning it into reality. The UGO is a true game changer.

Designed to streamline and simplify the process of converting gas burners, this revolutionary product is set to redefine convenience for dealers, installers and end users alike. Gas fire pit conversions have traditionally been a complex and time consuming task, requiring specialized knowledge and tools. Prior to UGO, the conversion process was lengthy requiring the installer to convert the valve by  removing and re-installing a new burner orifice. However, with the introduction of the “UGO, efficiency takes center stage. This innovative device eliminates the need for multiple gas type orifice sizes by providing a single, adaptable solution suitable for both types of gas, natural and propane. With UGO gas conversion is complete with 3 easy simple steps. First, ensure the gas supply is disconnected or in the off position. Then loosen the set screw on the collar of the orifice. Next, rotate the collar to open the gas Venturi openings. Once aligned, the set screw needs to be retightened. Next rotate the orifice ¼ turn with a flat screwdriver and then turn the gas to the on position. The appliance is ready for use allowing consumers to enjoy their design.

HPC Fire Inspired never skimps on standards for safety. HPC offers the most CSA certified appliances on the market. HPC’s appliances are CSA certified with use of UGO, as our team works collaboratively with CSA to understand the standards and requirements for safe reliable features.
