any tips on converting a some 1000's and y600 to propane
« on: May 18, 2017, 05:49:42 PM »
I got a great deal on a stack of bakers pride y600 and a set of blodgett 1000's. Only problem I dont have access to natural gas. Does anyone know how to convert these to propane?

I would call the manufacturer for recommended fittings. "Usually" a fairly simple fix, not always.......

I ate a lot of hummus this morning.  I've got plenty of natural gas and I'm willing to share.

we use Blodgett `100's in our pizzeria and they have a natural gas regulator on them.  I know they sell them for propane as well.  Check partstown.com.  Walter

Just got this motha converted...it is a 1048.  I have attached the receipt of parts, but it depends on when it was manufactured.   You can call the Blodgett parts dept and they will help you based on model and when it was manufactured.  You can google and buy em online.  Most of the pricing at various places is consistent.

thanks for the advice. I got some parts ordered. hopefully these ovens fire up after I convert them.

Anyone know how long a 5 gallon propane tank will last? Do I need to get a bigger tank?

I just did this to a set of Blodgett 1000s. Fairly straightforward. We needed a regulator on the tank as well. Pressure was too high coming off.
All in all it works fine though! Takes about 2 hours to get up to 550ish. Not sure how much gas that requires tho. Got a 100lb tank and there is still plenty of gas in there after bringing it up to heat. I would def suggest a bigger tank!
