Principle of operation
Combustion System
The combustion system is based on a fully modulating forced draft com­bustion air blower, a negative
pressure regulator gas valve and a 100% premix burner. On a call for humidity, the combustion air
blower starts and creates a negative pressure across an orifice located at the air inlet. The blower
starts for a moment to purge the system, then the hot surface ignitor is activated. During this time
the electronic ignition module does a diagnostic check of safety systems including the air proving
switch which senses the negative pressure at the air inlet.
After the function of the safety systems has been verified, the gas valve will open and the gas/air
mixture is ignited by the hot surface ignitor. If flame is sensed by the flame sensor within 7 seconds
the gas valve remains open and combustion continues. If flame is not sensed, the above sequence
is repeated a maximum of three times after which the ignition module will lock out and a respective
error message will appear in the display.
The gas valve maintains a constant ratio of air to Natural Gas or Propane independent of blower
speed or external conditions. This air and fuel is thoroughly mixed in the blower and then forced
through the burner ports where ignition occurs.
Hot products of combustion are forced through a baffle inside the heat exchanger and then vented
outside. The heat exchanger has large vertical surfaces to minimize scale build-up and promote scale
shedding to the bottom of the tank. This self-cleaning action helps to maintain the efficiency of the
heat exchanger while the smooth surfaces allow for easy cleaning when necessary.
The GS 40 has a single combustion chamber/heat exchanger. The combustion system is duplicated
on larger units with multiple chambers inside a common tank.

Mixing pipe
The level in the water tank is continuously monitored by the level unit. On initial start-up, the control
unit checks the function of the level unit. During this test the tank is filled up first to level “A”, then
drained to level “C” and filled up again to level “A”. As soon as level “B” is reached and the test of the
level unit was successful the humidifier is ready for operation, if a humidification demand is present
the combustion process starts.
12
When the water level due to the evaporation process reaches level “B”, the level unit sends a signal
to the control system, which opens the double inlet valve and the water tank is filled up. On reaching level “A”, the level unit again sends a signal to the control system and the double inlet valve is
closed.
If the water level goes below level “C”, the combustion will be interrupted until the water level reaches
“C” again.
To ensure safe operation, the control system constantly monitors the proper function of the level unit
in regular intervals.
Steam generation/control
The steam is generated in the water tank via the heat exchanger/s. The steam production is regulated
continuously by the internal PID controller or an external continuous controller.
Flushing
The concentration of minerals in the water in the tank increases due to the evaporation process. In
order that this concentration does not exceed a specified value, an appropriate quantity of water is
pumped off from the tank at a fixed time interval and replaced by fresh water. These flushing cycles
are based on steam production to increase the efficiency of the humidifier.
When a flushing cycle is initiated the drain pump is activated and the inlet valve opens. In the mixing
pipe below the filling chamber the hot drain water is mixed with the cold cooling water and leaves
the unit with a temperature approx. around 60 - 70 °C.
If the lowest operating level is reached in the tank during the flushing process, the inlet valve remains
open until the water level in the tank has again reached the normal operating level.

Basic planning
4.1
Selecting the unit
The selection of the unit is reflected in the type description:
Condair GS 80 C G20 RS
1. Required maximum steam capacity
2. Required combustion gas
3. Combustion air supply
4.1.1
Calculating the maximum required steam capacity
The maximum required steam capacity is calculated from the following formulas:
mD =
V • ρ
• (x2 - x1)
1000
or
V
mD =
• (x2 - x1)
1000 • ε
mD: maximum steam demand in kg/h
V: volume of supply air portion per hour in m3/h (for indirect room humidification) or room volume
to be humidified per hour in m3/h (for direct room humidification)
ρ: specific gravity of air in kg/m3
ε: specific volume of air in m3/kg
x2: desired absolute room air humidity in g/kg
x1: minimum absolute supply air humidity in g/kg
The values for ρ, ε, x2 and x1 can be gathered from the h,x-diagram or the Carrier-Diagram for moist
air respectively.
For a rough estimate of the calculated steam capacity, the following table can be used. The values
listed in the table are based on a desired room air temperature of 20 °C and a desired relative room
air humidity of 45 %rh.
Note: To roughly estimate the calculated maximum steam capacity for larger supply air portions or
room volumes, the values listed in the table can be projected accordingly.

Important notes:
– The required maximum steam capacity depends on the specific application and the installation.
The calculated steam capacity based on the above formulas, the h,x diagram and the condition of
the air to be humidified does not consider any steam loss (e.g. due to condensation in the steam
hoses and the steam distributors), any heat loss of the unit as well as any absorption or release
of humidity of materials located in the room being humidi­fied.
In addition, the calculated steam capacity does not consider any losses caused by the draining
rate depending on the water quality.
The total amount of losses depends on the entire system and must be taken into consideration
when calculating the required steam capacity. If you have any questions regarding the calculation
of the steam capacity please contact your Condair supplier.
– For systems where the max. required steam capacity varies extensively (e.g. for test facilities or
for systems with variable air volume flow, etc.), please contact your Condair supplier.

System 2 is suited for air conditioning systems with a large portion of supply air, low supply air
temperature, post-humidification, or variable airflow volume. If the supply air hum­idity exceeds
the preset value, the continuous limitation is effected prior to the room hum­idity control.
The humidity sensor (A1) is preferably located in the exhaust air duct or in the room itself. The
humidity sensor (A2) for the limitation of the supply air humidity is located in the supply air duct
after the steam distribution pipe. This control system requires the internal PID controller or an
external continuous controller with the option to connect a second humidity sensor.
Attention! The continuous limitation of the supply air humidity is no substitute for the safety ­humidistat.

– System 3: Supply air humidity control with continuous output limitation
Supply air humidity control (humidity sensor installed in supply air duct) should be used only
where room humidity control is impracticable for technical reasons. Such systems always require
a PI-controller.
The humidity sensor (A1) is located in the supply air duct after the steam distribution pipe. The
humidity sensor (A2) for the continuous output limitation is located in the supply air duct before
the steam distribution pipe. Such a system requires the internal PID controller or an external PIcontroller with the option to connect a second humidity sensor.

To fully exploit the overall capacity of your GS humidifier, the output of each
steam outlet may be fed to more than one distribution pipe. If more than one
steam distribution pipe is fed per steam outlet the steam line must be divided
into multiple branches. Appropriate fittings are available on request.
Note: If the humidification distance (see chapter 5.3.1) has to be reduced for technical reasons, the
steam output of your unit must be divided between two steam distribution pipes or the OptiSorp
steam distribution system must be used. If this is the case, contact your Condair supplier.
OptiSorp steam distribution system
The OptiSorp steam distribution system is used in ventilation ducts with a short humidification distance
(for the calculation of the humidification distance refer to chapter 5.3.1). When ordering an OptiSorp
system the duct dimension must be specified. Please consult the data in the following table.

Important notes on mounting and installation works
Qualification of personnel
All mounting and installation work must be performed only by adequately qualified personnel familiar
with the Condair GS. Ascertaining the qualifications is the customer‘s responsibility.
General notes
All the information contained in these installation, commissioning and service instructions relating to
equipment assembly and to gas, flue gas, water, steam and electrical installation must be unconditionally observed and complied with.
The local directives and regulations for the installation of gasfired equipment (Steam humidifiers)
must be unconditionally observed and complied with.
All local regulations relating to the execution of gas, flue gas, water, steam and electrical installations
must be observed and complied with.

Unit fitting
5.2.1
Humidifier location
The positioning of the Condair GS is largely dependent on the location of installation of the steam
distribution pipe (see Chapter 5.3.1) and on the details of the flue gas pipe (see Chapter 5.6) and the
air supply line (RS units only, see Chapter 5.7). To ensure proper functioning of the steam humidifier and to obtain optimum efficiency, the following points must be considered and observed when
choosing the location for the steam humidifier:
– the local and national regulations for installation of gasfired equipment must be observed and
followed. The manufacturer accepts no liability for non-compliance with these regulations.
– Install the steam humidifier so that :
– the length of the steam hose is as short as possible (ideally 2 m, max. 4 m), the minimum
bend radius (R= 300 mm) and the minimum upslope (20 %) and the minimum downslope (5
%) of the steam hose can be maintained (see Chapter 5.3.2).
Note: Long steam lines reduce the maximum steam output of the humidifier, due to the heat
loss involved. The static pressure also increases.
– the flue gas pipe can be installed in accordance with the applicable local building and installation regulations.
– in the case of room air-independent units (RS units) the installation location can be reached
with an air supply line and good accessibility is assured.
– In the case of room air-dependent units care must be taken to provide an adequate intake of air
(in accordance with local building regulations).
For UK only: Please refer to BS 5440: Part II or BS 6644 when installing units. We draw your attention especially to combustion an ventilation air supply requirements for plant rooms. Permanent
low and high level openings communicating directly with the outside air shall be fitted with grilles
having a total minimum free area as follows.

The room air-independent humidifiers (RS units) do not require a separate ventilation opening,
since the combustion air required is provided by an air intake pipe from outside the building.
CAUTION!
Operation of the humidifier with unclean air can lead to safety problems and reduce the output
of the unit. Impurities in the air are, for example: Halogens, ammonia, chloride, excessive dust,
lime and dirt. For questions about air quality, please refer to the technical service department
of your Condair distributor
– The Condair GS gasfired steam humidifiers are designed for floor mounting on the unit stand
(included in the delivery) fixed to the floor.
– The sheet covering of the Condair GS heats up during operation (max. surface temperature approx.
60 - 70 °C). Therefore make sure that no heat-sensitive materials are placed in the immediate
vicinity of the humidifier.
21
– No combustible materials must be placed in the immediate vicinity of the Condair GS humidifier
(Insulation materials, wooden floor coverings, etc.). Observe local regulations!
– Do not mount the humidifier in a location that is endangered by heat or frost! If the humidifier must
be mounted outside, it must be housed in a weatherproof and thermo­statically ventilated cabinet.
If necessary, please contact your Condair representative.
– Do not mount the humidifier on a base that is subject to vibration. If necessary, please contact
your Condair representative.
– The Condair GS must be installed only in locations equipped with a water drain or with sensors
that safely interrupt water supply in case of leak­age.
– Do not cover the air openings in the top and bottom covers of the humidifier housing otherwise
the air flow may be insufficient. Furthermore, do not place the unit in a narrow niche or a closed
compartment (observe minimum distances).

Positioning and mounting of the steam distribution pipes
The location for the steam distribution pipes should be determined at the time of dimensioning the
air con­ditioning system. Please note the following instructions to ensure proper humidification of the
duct air.
Calculating the humidification distance
The water vapor, emitting from the steam distribution pipes, requires a certain distance to be absorbed
by the ambient air so that it is no longer visible as steam. This distance is referred to as humidification distance “BN” and serves as a basis for the determination of the minimum distances from the
upstream components in the system.

Expansion- and mixing zone
φ 1: Incoming air humidity before humidification
φ 2: Air humidity after humidification
The calculation of the humidification distance “BN” is dependent on several factors. For a rough estimation of the humidification distance “BN”, the following table is useful. Recommended standard
values listed in this table are based on a supply-air temperature range of 15°C to 30°C. The values
given in bold print only apply to steam distribution pipes 81-.., the values in brackets apply to
the OptiSorp steam distribution system.

Installation notes and dimensions
The steam distribution pipes are designed for either horizontal installation (on the duct wall) or, with
accessories, for vertical installation (in the duct floor). The outlet orifices should always point upwards
and at right angles to the airflow.
If possible, the steam distribution pipes should be installed on the pressure side of the duct (max.
duct pressure 1700 Pa). If the steam distribution pipes are installed on the suction side of the duct,
the maximum vacuum must not exceed 800 Pa.
Select a location for the installation, tailored to suit your duct (see the following illustrations) and
position the steam distribution pipes in the duct so that a uniform distribution of steam is achieved.
26

Guidelines for dimensioning the ventilation ducts
– To facilitate the installation of the steam distribution pipes and for control purposes, a sufficiently
sized control opening should be planned.
– Within the range of the humidification distance, the ventilation duct should be waterproofed.
– Low temperature ducts below 15°C, shallow ducts, or branch ducts might require the use of a
field supplied condensate drain pan below the steam distributor (see figure below).
Branch duct
Shallow duct
Drain pan

– Air ducts passing through cold rooms should be insulated to prevent the humidified air from condensing along the duct wall.
– Poor airflow conditions within the air duct (e.g. caused by obstacles, tight bends, etc.) can lead
to condensation of the humidified air.
– Steam distribution pipes must not be mounted to round ducts.
– Exercise extreme caution when installing in fiberglass or internally lined ducts. If necessary, remove 10-15 cm of the lining where the steam is being introduced.
If you have questions relating to the dimensioning of ventilation ducts in combination with Condair
steam humidifiers, contact your Condair supplier.
Installing the steam distribution pipes/OptiSorp steam distribution system
Detailed information on the installation of steam distribution pipes and OptiSorp steam distribution
system can be found in the separate “Mounting Instructions” for this products.
28
Installing the main steam pipe
The steam pipe between the steam outlet of the unit and the steam hose adapter (main steam pipe)
must be made with solid piping.
steam hoses
(max. length 4 m)

5.3.2
The following notes must be observed:
– The internal diameter of the steam outlet on the unit must be maintained over the entire length
of the main steam piping.
– The maximum length of the main steam pipe is 6 m.
Important! Allowance must be made for a pressure loss of 10 mm water column (approx.
100 Pa) per meter length or per 90° bend.
– The minimum bend radius for solid pipes is 4-5 x internal diameter. 90° bends should be
avoided. Wherever possible, pipe bends with large radius should be used (e.g. produced using
a pipe bending machine, or constructed from a pair of 45° bends). This reduces the performance
loss due to the formation of condensate, and in addition, the static pressure in the steam line.
– Use Cu pipe (for operation with untreated drinking water only) or stainless steel pipe (min. DIN
1.4301) exclusively.
– To minimize the condensate formation (= loss), the steam pipes must be insulated over the entire
length of the piping.
– Connection of the steam pipe to the steam outlet on the unit and the connection on the steam
hose adapter is effected by means of short lengths of steam hose secured with hose clamps.
– At spots where condensate could accumulate inside the pipe a condensate drain with siphon
(min. hose bend Ø200 mm) must be mounted.
29
Installing the steam hoses between steam hose adapter
and steam distributors
Important! Use original Condair steam hose exclusively. Other types of steam hoses can cause
undesired operational malfunctions.
The following notes must be observed:

– Lead the steam hose with an upslope of at least 20% or with a minimum downslope of 5% to
the steam distribution pipe.
–­ The steam hose should be kept as short as possible (ideally 2 m, max. 4 m) while observing the
minimum bend radius of 300 mm. Important! Allowance must be made for a pressure loss
of 10 mm water column (approx. 100 Pa) per meter steam hose.
– Reductions in the cross section such as kinks should be avoided throughout the entire length of
the hose. The installation of a stop cock in the steam hose is not permissible.
– Steam hoses must be prevented from sagging (condensate pockets); if necessary, support with
pipe clamps, rails or wall brackets. If sagging can not be prevented (e.g. when passing by obstacles) a condensate drain with siphon (min. hose bend Ø200 mm) must be mounted at the lowest
point of the steam hose (see following illustration).

– Important! When deciding on the length and layout of the hose, it should be noted that the steam
hose may become somewhat shorter with progressive ageing.
30
Securing the hose
The steam hose must be secured to the steam distribution pipe and humidi­fier steam outlet by means
of hose clamps.
Steam line with fixed piping
For steam lines with fixed piping, the same instructions apply to the laying of the piping as already
described. The following additional notes should be observed:
– The minimum internal diameter of 45 mm should be applied over the whole length of the piping.
– Use exclusively Cu pipe (for operation with untreated drinking water only) or stainless steel (min.
DIN 1.4301).
– To minimize the condensate formation (=loss), the steam pipes must be insulated.
– The minimum bend radius for solid pipes is 4-5 x internal diameter.
90° bends should be avoided. Wherever possible, tube bends with large radii should be used (e.g.
produced using a tube bending machine, or constructed from a pair of 45° bends). This reduces
the performance loss due to the formation of condensate, and in addition, the static pressure in
the steam line.
– Important! Allowance must be made for a pressure loss of 10 mm water column (approx.
100 Pa) per meter length or per 90° bend.
– Connection of the steam pipes to the steam distribution pipe and steam humidifier is effected by
means of short lengths of steam hose secured with hose clamps.

Water supply
The water supply pipe is to be connected via the filter valve (accessory “Z261”), to the connection
on the unit (see foregoing illustration). The filter valve should be installed as close to the humidifier
as possible.
Note: Instead of the filter valve, a shut-off valve and a water filter 5 µm ( (both essential) can be
used.
The following specifications must be observed:
– Connections on unit: BSP 3/4" (outside thread)
– Min. inner diameter of supply line: 12 mm
– Admissible mains pressure 3.0 to 8.0 bar (hammer-free system)
For mains pressures >8 bar, connection must be made via pressure reducing valve (adjusted to
3.0 bar). For mains pressures <3.0 bar please contact your Condair supplier.
– Supply rate: 10 l/min
– Admissible supply temperature: 1…30 °C
– Notes on water quality:
– For the water supply of the Condair GS, use exclusively untreated drinking water or fully
demineralized water.
Note: The use of fully demineralized water reduces the maintenance and the cleaning of the
water tank to a minimum.
– The use of additives such as corrosion inhibitors, disinfectants, etc. is not allowed, since
these additives may endanger health and affect proper operation.
– If the Condair GS shall be operated with softened or partly softened water, please contact your
Condair supplier.
– The connection material must be pressure-proof and certified for use in drinking water supply
systems.
CAUTION!
Fully demineralized water is aggressive. When making connections to a fully dem­ineralized water
system, use exclusively plastic or stainless steel installation materials (min. DIN 1.4301).
– Important! Before connecting the water line to the unit, the line must be flushed thoroughly.
33
Water drain
The drain line should be connected to the unit drain connection using a hose coupling. The drain
line should drop vertically down for a minimum of 50 cm and into an open drain funnel (min. height
15 cm). The drain line is then connected via a siphon to the building drain line. The minimum internal
diameter of 45 mm must be maintained over the full length of the building drain line. Make sure that
the drain line is correctly attached and easily accessible for the purpose of inspection and cleaning.
The following connection data should be observed:
– Connection on unit (hose connection): 3/4" (Ø19 mm)
CAUTION!
Use only temperature-resistant installation materials!
When using fully demineralized water, only stainless steel (min. DIN 1.4301) or chemically-resistant plastic (e.g. Polypropylene) connection components must be used.
– Drainage capacity: approx. 20 l/min
– Min. inner diameter of the building drain line: 45 mm
– Min. downslope after siphon: 10 %
Note: It is not permissible to curve the drain pipe upwards, because this can lead to the collection
of deposits at the lowest point in the pipe and to the blockage of the pipe.

5.5.2
Leak testing
After completion of the installation work, the whole gas line must be tested to a maximum pressure
of 40 mbar (4.0 kPa) for natural gas or 150 mbar (15 kPa) for propane and checked for leaks using a commercially available soap solution. The bubbles indicate leaks. All leaks must be eliminated
before the humidifier is put into operation.
DANGER!
Never use an open flame to check for leaks. The presence of any leakage is a source of danger
to persons and to property, due to the possibility of fire and explosion.
If the gas circuit must be tested to a pressure of over 150 mbar (15 kPa), the gas supply pipe must
be removed from the unit connection. After the test, the gas line must be depressurized before it is
reconnected to the unit.
CAUTION!
Non-observance of the above instruction can lead to damage to the gas pressure regulating valve.
Gas pressure valves overloaded due to high pressure are not covered by the manufacturer‘s
guarantee.

and discharge of flue gases. For such applications, refer to the applicable
local regulations and the separate Installation Instructions “Installation as
a C6 appliance” available from your Condair dealer.
40
General installation notes
The following instruction notes must be observed:
– Flue gas specifications: ---> see table in chapter 10.2
– The flue gas temperature during normal application and when the maintenance schedule is
fulfilled is between 160 - 180 °C. If the unit is not maintained properly the flue gas temperature
could increase. In this case the temperature switch would shut down the unit if the temperature
exceeds 200 °C for safety reasons.
– Use exclusively corrosion free installation and sealing materials tested and approved for flue gas
systems.
– All connections of the flue gas pipe must be sealed with high temperature RTV silicone rated for
at least 250 °C.
– Select a suitable piping arrangement for the discharge of flue gases from the building.
– The minimum internal diameter must be observed over the entire length of the flue gas pipe.
– GS 40:
ø76 mm (3")
– GS 80:
ø101 mm (4")
– GS 120/GS 160:
ø127 mm (5")
– GS 200/GS 240:
ø152 mm (6")
– Horizontal pipe sections should have a minimum upward slope of 21 mm/m and should be supported every 1.5 m and additionally supported at every pipe bend.
– For any flue lengths over 7 m long, use insulated pipes.
– When the flue pipe is lead through nearby rooms the pipe must be equipped with an F90-type
insulation.
– Provide a fire-proof screen or barrier (at a minimum distance of 50 mm to flue gas pipe) to prevent
personal injury in areas where inadvertent personnel contact with flue pipe can occur or where
heat-sensitive products are stored.
– Secure the flue pipe (e.g. by means of beading the pipe, see overview) to prevent it from slipping
into the flue connector of the unit.
– A condensate discharge point should be installed at an appropriate position in the GS humidifier
flue gas system (see overview). A siphon with a minimum 300 mm head of water must be installed
in the condensate discharge line, so that no flue gases can escape via the discharge pipe.
Before operating the humidifier, make sure that the siphon in the condensate discharge is filled
with water and the condensate outlet is in accordance with the applicable local regulations for
sanitary installations.
Flueing with overpressure
When flueing with overpressure the maximum admissible length of the flue pipe equals 30 meters for
room air-dependent units and 21 meters for room air-independent RS unit (assuming same diameter
as connector on Condair GS) where each 90° elbow is equal to 3 m and each 45° elbow is equal to
1.5 m of straight pipe. Three elbows outside the humidifier casing is a recommended maximum for
flueing systems.
We recommend 30 m or 21 m respectively flue length maximum to ensure that output is main­tained.
For lengths over 30 m or 21 m respectively, please consult your Condair supplier.
41
Flueing with underpressure
If local regulations require flueing with underpressure, the underpressure must be within -0.2 and
-0.62 mbar. The applicable local regulations for the layout of flue gas pipes for underpressure must
be observed and complied with.
Additional requirements when flueing through a sidewall
Attention! Some countries prohibit leading the flue pipe through a side wall. Observe local regulations
and contact the local authorities and/or the chimney-sweep.
Position the humidifier as near as possible to the wall through which the flue pipe is to be taken.
Locate the flue terminal at least 1 m above any forced air inlet located within 3 m; or at least 1 m
below, 1 m horizontally from, or 0.5 m above any door, window, or gravity air inlet into any building.
A minimum horizontal clearance of 1 m from electric meters, gas meters, regulator and relief equipment is required.
Locate the flue terminal at least 2.5 m above grade when it is adjacent to public walkways.
Locate the bottom of the flue terminal at least 45 cm above grade or ground, or normally expected
snow accumulation level. The snow level may be higher on walls exposed to prevailing winds.
Avoid areas where local experience indicates that condensate drippage may cause problems such
as above planters, patios, or over public walk­ways, or over an area where condensate or vapor could
create a nuisance or hazard, or could be detrimental to the operation of regulators, relief valves, or
other equipment.
Refer to the flue manufacturer’s installation instructions.
Additional requirements for flue gas systems of RS units
The RS units are certified as C33 and C53 appliances. Where local regulations permit, the RS units
can be installed as C6 appliances. For such applications, refer to the separate Installation Instructions “Installation as a C6 appliance” available from your Condair dealer.
Please observe the following additional requirements for the flue gas installation of RS units:
– Only use installation material in accordance with the local regulations.
– The flue gas pipe and the air inlet pipe must have the same length (min. 2.1 m, max. 21 m).
– Observe the requirements regarding terminal locations in section 5.7.

Installation notes
– Max. admissible supply air temperature is 30 °C. Make sure the air supply line is not heated up
by the flue gas line.
– The maximum pipe length for the air supply line is equivalent to 21 meters. The minimum diameter (see above) must be maintained over the entire length of the line. In this estimate, each 90°
bend is equal to 3 m of straight pipe length and each 45° bend is equal to 1.5 m of straight pipe
length. Not more than 3 pipe bends must be built into the air supply line.
The air supply line should be approximately as long as the flue gas line and must be supported
at least every 1.5 m of its length and additionally supported at every pipe bend.
– The air supply line can be provided either as a fixed tube or as a hose. The minimum internal
diameter must be observed over the entire length.

– All connections on the air supply line must be positively sealed with a silicone sealant to ensure
proper sealing of the air supply line.
– The air supply line must be installed with the supplied air intake wall terminal (see illustration
above and refer to section “Terminal locations”).
– At low temperatures (under 18 °C), water of condensation can form on the outside of the air supply line. To prevent this, we recommend that air supply lines that are situated in cold rooms are
insulated.
44
Terminal locations
When locating the air intake and the flue gas terminals the following requirements must be observed:
– All terminal must terminate at an outside location.
– Location of air intake and flue gas terminal must comply with all local and national regulations.
– Air intake and flue gas terminal can be installed in different pressure zones.
– Air intake and flue gas terminal cannot be installed on opposite walls of the building.
– A minimum distance of 1.2 m must be maintained between the air intake and the flue gas terminal
to prevent recirculation of flue gases (see figure above).
– When the flue gas or air intake terminal is located less than 2.75 m from the ground or can be
accessed by personnel a guard must be installed at a minimum distance of 50 mm to the terminal
to prevent personal injury.
5.8
Installation of control and monitoring devices
– Install the room humidity sensor and the safety humidistat at the same height as thermostats
and in a location where the measured humidity corresponds to that of the room. Under no circumstances should the humidity sensors be positioned in the vicinity of the air flow from ventilator units or air intake grids. Do not mount humidity sensors on an outer wall, where temperature
fluctuations can affect the control behavior.
– Install the duct humidity sensor in a position where the measured humidity corresponds to that
of the room that is being humidified (usually in the duct return circuit). Do not position humidity
sensors in the immediate vicinity of steam distribution pipes, nor in sections of a duct subject to
air turbulence, nor within the path of the humidification process itself.
– Install the safety humidistat in the duct, after the steam distribution pipes and far enough away
from these, that all the steam has been absorbed into the air (minimum distance 3 m). The safety
humidistat must be positioned such that it only detects that the humidity is too high when the room
humidity is in reality too high or has reached the saturation limit.
– Install the flow monitor such that reliably detects the existence of an airflow and the absence of
an airflow. Connect it in such a way, that the circuit is closed when airflow is present and opens
when there is no airflow.
– Before starting the humidifier, check all control and monitoring devices for correct function.
– Calibration of the control and monitoring devices (On/Off and continuous) following the installation
is recommended. The accuracy of the humidity sensor and the safety humidistat must always be
checked before commissioning the humidifier system.

Installation notes
All work concerning the electric installation must be performed only by adequately qualified personnel (electrician or workman with equivalent training). Ascertaining the qualifications is the customer‘s
responsibility.
Observe all local regulations concerning the electric installation.
DANGER! Danger of electric shock!
The steam humidifier may be connected to electric mains only after all installation work has been
completed.
CAUTION!
The electronic parts inside the humidifier are very sensitive to electrostatic discharge. To prevent
damage, appropriate measures against electrostatic discharge (ESD protection) must be taken
when carrying out installation work
Primary wiring
Humidifiers require field wiring to primary voltage terminal blocks. Power requirement is 220…240V/50…60Hz,
10 A slow-acting fused (“F1”) circuit, single phase. Wiring is fed through a 22 mm hole in the bottom of the
control compartment. Installation of external service switch “Q” (all pole disconnecting device with a minimum
contact opening of 3 mm) is mandatory.
When installed, the appliance must be electrically grounded in accordance with local codes, if an external
electrical source is utilized.
Connect ground wire to cabinet ground clamp.
External wiring sizes must be in accordance with existing local electrical codes and by-laws.
Remote operation and fault indication (H1)
The Remote operation and fault indication board is equipped with 4 relays for remote operation and fault
indication.
– “On”:this relay closes after the humidifier has been powered up
– “Steam”:
this relay closes as soon as steam is produced
– “Service”:
this relay closes when the set maintenance interval has expired
– “Error”:
this relay closes when an error occurs
External safety circuit (K1)
To guarantee the safety of the humidification system, monitoring the operation by means of a safety circuit
is an absolute requirement. To accomplish this, the potential-free contacts (250V/2A) of external moni­tor­ing
devices (B1: safety high limit humidistat, B2: airflow monitor, B3: ventilation interlock, etc.) are connected in
series to terminals 1 and 2.
Control or sensor signal
The control signal (signal Y) is connected to terminals 3 and 4. The air supply limit signal (signal Z) is connected to terminals 3 and 5. By default the Condair GS is configured for a 0…10 VDC control signals. The
control signal type can be modified via the software (see menu “user settings”, in the operating instructions
for the Condair GS control). The configuration whether the Condair GS is controlled via the internal or via an
external controller is also done via the software.
Output A3
This output is available for custom purposes. The lines are connected to terminals 6 and 7. The output signal
type is configured by setting the jumper on JP3 (5 Vdc max. 500 mA) or on JP4 (24Vdc max. 150 mA).
Full tank blow down 24 VAC (S1)
This input signal can be used for remote triggering a full tank blowdown. If a 24 VAC signal is present for more
than 60 seconds the tank blows down. The signal line is connected to terminals 8 and 7.

Commissioning
Before the Condair GS is operated for the first time, the responsible personnel must inspect all
installations for correct execution and check that the unit is correctly configured (see check
list in chapter 6). All deficiencies must be corrected by specialist action before commissioning takes
place.
The humidifier is operated as follows:
1. Examine the humidifier and all installations for possible damage.
CAUTION!
Damaged units and units with damaged installations must not be operated!
2. Check the cleanliness of the outer cabinet:
The panels may be cleaned with a damp cloth and warm soapy water.
CAUTION!
Make sure no water is dripping into the cabinet through the ventilation openings in the unit
housing.
3. Fill the water tank:
• Close the shut-off valve in the gas supply line.
• Open the shut-off valve in the water supply pipe.
• Set humidity controller to maximum humidity demand.
• Switch-on the service switch in the electrical supply circuit.
• Switch-on the humidifier at the unit switch.
• The filling valve opens and the water tank fills (filling time: approx. 30 minutes for the largest
model, for smaller units the filling time is shorter). At the end of the filling cycle the control unit
checks the function of the water level unit. If the control unit has verified the proper function
of the water level unit the ignition sequence starts. After three attempts at ignition the auto
ignition switches off. The red LED lights and a corresponding error message is shown in the
display. Now switch the humidifier Off.
4. Check ignition:
The regulator is still set to maximum humidity demand and the shut-off valve in the gas line is
closed.
• Switch-On the humidifier at the unit switch.
The combustion air blower(s) start(s). Note: On multi-blower units, wait until all blowers have
started.
Then, 15 seconds later (pre-purging time) the igniter is activated and the gas pressure regulating valve opens. After 7 seconds the gas pressure regulating valve closes and the igniter is
de-energized (due to missing ignition).
Note: On multi-burner units, this process is successively completed for all burners.
After three ignition attempts per burner (complete with pre-purging), the humidifier goes into
safety lockout.
• Open the shut-off valve in the gas supply pipe.
No gas should flow to the main burner. End of the test.
• Switch-off the humidifier at the unit switch. Note: To reset the safety switch-off, switch-off the
humidifier for at least five seconds and then switch it on again.
• Adjust the humidity controller again to the set humidity value.
52
5. Pre-purge of the gas pressure regulating valve(s):
• Disconnect all ignitors from the ignition modules.
• Switch-On the humidifier at the unit switch.
The combustion air blower(s) start(s). Note: On multi-blower units, wait until all blowers have
started.
Then, 15 seconds later (pre-purging time) the gas pressure regulating valve opens for 7 seconds, then it closes again (due to missing ignition).
Note: On multi-burner units, this process is successively completed for all burners.
After three ignition attempts per burner (complete with pre-purging), the humidifier goes into
safety lockout.
Note: To reset the safety switch-off, switch-off the humidifier for at least five seconds and then
switch it on again.
Repeat this sequence minimum 2 times in order to make sure no air is left in the gas system.
• Switch-off the humidifier at the unit switch.

As soon as the humidity controller demands humidity, the combustion air
blower(s) start(s). Then, 15 seconds later (pre-purging time) the ignition
process for the burner(s) is started. The burner(s) ignite(s) and steam is
generated in the tank via the heat exchanger(s). The green LED lights and
the adjacent display is shown.
If no flame is detected by the flame sensor within 7 seconds after the
ignition of a burner, the gas pressure regulation valve closes again. The
ignition sequence is repeated a maximum of three times per burner. If no
burner could be ignited, the humidifier goes into system lockout. The red
LED lights and an appropriate fault message appears in the display. At
the same time, the operating and remote fault alarm potential-free contact
(“Error”) closes.
Note: The system lockout is reset by switching the humidifier off briefly
(5 seconds) and then on again.

Safety
Before maintenance is initiated, the Condair GS must be tak­en out of operation in accordance
with instructions in chapter 7.5 and protected against unintentional switching on.
8.2
Maintenance instructions
To maintain operating reliability, the Condair GS must be serviced at regular intervals. Here, a
distinction is made between the first service after 500 hours of operation (I), the minor service
every time the maintenance alarm appears (II) and the annual maintenance (III).
Important! Depending on the hardness of the water and the average steam output, under certain
circumstances it may be necessary to reduce the service interval for the minor maintenance work.
If the lime residues deposited on the floor of the tank exceed a height of 5 cm the interval must
be reduced. If the height is less than 5 cm the interval can be extended.
Important: Every service action must be documented in the “Maintenance” report sheet (a copy of
this document is provided in these installation, commissioning and service instructions). Warranty
is void if the speci­fied maintenance intervals are not observed and the maintenance work are not
carried out according the instructions.

Cleaning the water tank
WARNING!
Danger of combustion!
The water and all lime deposits in the tank can be extremely hot and may lead to burning on contact.
Therefore, allow the humidifier to cool before commencing cleaning work.
The combustion chamber walls are usually self-cleaning. Due to the expansion and contraction during the humidification process, lime deposits peel from the walls and sink to the floor of the tank. An
accumulation of lime on the floor of the tank up to a maximum height of 50 mm is permissible and
does not affect the operation of the humidifier.
• Remove the lime deposits in the tank and combustion chamber walls with a plastic scraper. Do
not use metal spatulas or scrapers, because these are likely to scratch the internal walls of the
tank.
• Remove lime deposits from the floor of the tank with a spatula and/or with an industrial water
suction apparatus. Rinse out residual accumulations of lime with fresh tap water via the open
auxiliary water drain connection (Using a bucket). Never rinse away lime accumulations directly
into the connected water drain outlet, because there is a danger of the drain pump, the drain pipe
and the siphon becoming blocked.
• Remove the hose connections to the tank and clean them internally.
