The dryer must not be installed or stored in an area where it will be exposed to water and/or weather. Make sure you have everything necessary for correct installation. Each of the dryers is equipped with a timer, selector switches and indicator lights. The timers are set to provide 45 minutes (4 pins) of drying time when activated by the coin slide. Timer cams for 30-minute (6 pins) and 60minute (3 pins) drying timers are supplied with the unit in the parts bag. See Pages 8 and 9 for timer cam changing instructions.

K n A l/&inch, NPT plugged tapping, accessible for test-gauge connection, must be installed immediately upstream of the gas supply connector to the dryers. The dryers and their individual shutoff valves must be disconnected from the gas supply piping system during any pressure testing of that system at test pressures in excess of l/2 psig (3.4 kPa). The dryers must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing their individual manual shutoff valves during any pressure testing of the gas supply piping system at test pressures equal to or less than l/2 psig (3.4 kPa).

Each dryer is equipped with a power supply cord having a 3-prong grounding plug. To minimize shock hazard, the cords must be plugged into mating 3-prong grounding-type wall receptacles, grounded in accordance with National Electrical Code ANSVNFPA 70 - latest edition, and all local codes and ordinances. If a mating wall receptacle is not available, it is the personal responsibility and obligation of the customer to have a properly grounded, 3-prong wall receptacle installed by a qualified technician.

(Check governing codes and ordinances. Also refer to the ‘Recessed area and closet installation instructions,” Page 8.) An exhaust hood should cap the exhaust duct to prevent exhausted air from returning into the dryers. The outlet hood must be at least 12 inches from the ground or any object that may be in the path of the exhaust. l l l Allow as much roo ossible when Four-Inch outlet hood Is preterred. However, a 2-l/2-inch outlet exhaust hood may be used. (A 2-l/2-inch outlet creates greater back pressure than other hoods.) A maln exhaust duct can be used for exhausting a group of dryers. Main exhaust duct should be sized to remove 200 CFM of air per dryer. Large-capacity lint screens of proper design may be used in the main exhaust duct if checked and cleaned frequently. The room where the dryers are located should have make-up air equal to or greater than the CFM of all the dryers in the room.

A clean-out cover should be located on the main exhaust duct for periodically cleaning the exhaust system. An exhaust hood should cap the outside end of the main duct to prevent exhausted air from returning to the dryers. If an exhaust hood cannot be used, the outside end of the main duct should have a sweep elbow directed downward. If the main duct travels vertically through the roof rather than through the wall, install 180” sweep elbow on the end of duct at least 2 feet above the highest part of the building. The opening wall or roof shall have a diameter l/2 inch larger than the exhaust duct diameter. The exhaust duct should be centered in the opening.
