The Chaffoteaux et Maury BRITONY DUO 55 is a
combination of an unvented stainless steel storage
cylinder heated indirectly by a fanned flued sealed
system boiler within matching outer cases. It benefits
from the high efficiency provided by the modern low
water content BRITONY System Plus 60 boiler and a
high power coil within the cylinder. A combination
providing very fast reheating of the hot water.
For greater flexibility of installation, the cylinder could
be fitted below, on the right or the left of the boiler or
separately from the boiler. Supplied directly from the
main water supply the cylinder does not need a separate
feed cistern or vent pipe in the loft space.
The BRITONY DUO 55 provides central heating as well
as hot water. The boiler is designed for sealed systems
only and a circulating pump, diverter valve, expansion
vessel, a pressure gauge and safety valve are included
within the boiler.
with an expansion vessel, pressure reducer, strainer,
check valve, temperature and pressure relief valve,
expansion relief valve. The cylinder has been tested
and approved by the WRc as meeting with the
requirements of EN 60335 2.21 and EN 60529. The
boiler has been tested and approved to carry the CE
mark.
The BRITONY DUO 55 can be installed with the
standard horizontal flue, raised horizontal, concentric
vertical, twin pipe or SE duct flue arrangements.
Adapters, bends and other accessories are available
on request.

Safety Valves
The DUO 55 has a pressure relief valve fitted to the
boiler and a temperature and pressure relief valve fitted
to the cylinder. It is most important that they are
terminated below the boiler and over the tundish which
in turn should terminate safely outside the premises (see
Fig. 14). It is recommended that the tundish is installed
directly below the discharge pipe from the temperature
and pressure relief valve (37 Fig. 15). If necessary, the

Fitting the Horizontal
Flue
The standard horizontal flue kit is suitable for lengths
from 300mm up to 610mm. With extensions, the
maximum length is 3m. For rear flueing, the standard
pack will accommodate a maximum wall thickness of
490mm and for side flueing a maximum wall thickness
of 477mm. This takes into account the minimum side
clearance of 5mm.
The paper template will provide the position for the centre
for drilling the flue hole with a core drill. If the flue is a
side exit installation, calculate the position of the hole
by drawing a line from the centre position on the template
to the corner of the wall (sloping downwards away from
the boiler at 5mm per IOOOmm). Then measure
horizontally 212mm. This will be the centre position of
the flue hole. For greater detail please refer to the
instructions enclosed with the flue kit.
The instructions for fitting the raised horizontal, vertical
concentric, twin pipe and SE duct flue options can be
found in the relevant flue starter packs.

Flue
The boiler must be installed so that the flue terminal is
exposed to the free passage of external air at all times.
It must not be allowed to discharge into another room
or space such as an outhouse or closed lean-to.
The minimum acceptable clearances are shown below:
A Directly below an opening, window etc.

It may be necessary to protect the terminal with a guard
if it is accessible and could be damaged. Reference
should be made to the Building Regulations for guidance.
Suitable guards may be obtained from your local
merchant.
Ventilation
The room in which the boiler is installed does not require
specific ventilation. If it is installed in a cupboard or
compartment permanent ventilation is not required for
cooling purposes.
Gas Supply
The gas installation and soundness testing must be in
accordance with the requirements of BS 6891. The
boiler requires a 22mm supply. Ensure that the pipe
size is adequate for the demand including other gas
appliances on the same supply.
Electrical
Supply
The appliance requires an earthed 230V - 50Hz supply
and must be in accordance with current I.E.E. It must
also be possible to be able to completely isolate the
appliance electrically. Connection should be via a 3 amp
fused double pole isolating switch with contact
separation of at least 3mm on both poles. Alternatively,
a fused 3 amp / 3 pin plug and unswitched socket may
be used, provided it is not used in a room containing a
bath or shower. It should only supply the appliance.

System Pressure
The boiler is suitable for sealed systems only. The
maximum working pressure for the appliance is 3 bar.
All fittings and pipework connected to the appliance
should be of the same standard.
Flushing
and Water Treatment
The performance of the appliance could be impaired by
system debris or the effects of corrosion.
The system must be flushed thoroughly to remove metal
filings, solder, machining oils and other fluxes and
greases before connecting the boiler.
An appropriate flushing and descaling agent should be
used, particularly if it is an existing system.
Refer to BS 7593 (1992) for guidance).
For more information on the use of corrosion inhibitors,
flushing and descaling agents, advice can be sought
from the manufacturers of water treatment products

System Controls
The boiler is electronically controlled and is suitable for
most modern electronic time and temperature controls.
The addition of such external controls can be beneficial
to the efficient operation of the system. The boiler
connections for external controls are 24V and so only
controls of 24Vor that have voltage free contacts should
be used.
They must not be connected
to a 23OV supply.
By pass and Pump
The boiler is fitted with a pre-adjusted by pass. Although
adjustment is not normally necessary, the by pass can
e
C&M
-.-
19
be reset by turning a screw (D Fig. 22) anti-clockwise to
open the by-pass using the chart below for guidance.
If used on a system with thermostatic radiator valves,
the flow rate with thermostatic valves closed should be
adjusted to at least 100 Vhr.
The chart below indicates the residual head of the pump
available for the system.
Expansion
Vessels
Boiler
The expansion vessel is pre-charged to 0.7 bar
(lOlb/it-?). The vessel is suitable for systems up to 145
litres capacity. For systems of greater capacity an
additional expansion vessel will be required. Refer to
the chart below and BS 7074 pt. 1 or BS 5449.
Cylinder
The domestic hot water expansion vessel is pre-charged
to 3 bar (45.51b/in2).
Fig. 22
Head and flow rate available
m H,O I <- Minimum flow rate
The vessel is suitable for the 55 litre of water in the
cylinder.
Filling Point
Provision must be made to be able to charge the system
on commissioning and to make up any subsequent
pressure loss. The method of connection must utilise
approved equipment and must comply with the water
regulations. A filling loop can be so installed as to be
hidden beneath the boiler.
