I don’t know Kaleo, except for my Bluestar and Garlands, and some recent Capital open- burners, there are various sized burners for different BTU ratings. In fact some people wanted smaller ‘simmer’ burners and would epoxy their burner holes up and install a smaller nipple- eventually Capital just made a new smaller burner- same size, fewer holes. And yes, I know of people buying and installing different burner heads on their gas ranges.
Bluestar uses the same burner head for their 10, 15, 18, 22, 25K burners and just varies the number of holes. The 18K and 22K even have the same holes, they just increased the orifice size at the brass nipple. And yes it’s frowned upon, because it is after all gas. I’ve played with some mid-1940’s Magic Chefs that had cast iron oven burners, and yes, the port or nipple would clog up. decreasing the oven heat That port was actually adjustable for opening size. I never checked the stovetop burners… With wall furnaces we would remove the burner heads and use a sharpened nail to clean out the port.
