Gas Light Burner - Boulevard 36

I have 12 gas lights with triple burners that have been off for 4 years. I am trying to determine the best way to clean them to ensure they have good gas flow.

What do you think would be the best way to clean them? They currently seem to be very low flow. I have turned the control dial to fully open with very low flow.

Are these on one common gas line ?

You might need to replace mantles.

I just love these things

Also check for spider webs in the orifices.

Hi Guys,
Yep that is the one. I have 12 of them I need to get back in working order for my neighborhood POA. They haven't been used for a couple of years.

Any ideas on the best way to clean these pipes? I just got done shopping all over Lowes looking for an option. Funny no pipe cleaners that have now turned into arts and crafts items.

In a pinch when I started trying to figure out how to clean them I started using a thin electrical wire. This worked a little but not great.

Yes these are on one continuous gas line that is un-metered. I don't know if they would have a main that would have a regulator separate from the valve on the top next to the mantles / burners.

You may have to get the gas pressure measured in the system.

I came across this site while cruising around for info on these lamps.
