IMPORTANT INFORMATION
A. RECEIVING and HANDLING
The dryer is shipped in a protective stretch wrap cover with protective cardboard corners and top cover (or
optional box) as a means of preventing damage in transit. Upon delivery, the dryer and packaging, and wooden
skid should be visually inspected for shipping damage. If any damage whatsoever is noticed, inspect further
before delivering carrier leaves.
Dryers damaged in shipment.
1. ALL dryers should be inspected upon receipt and before they are signed for.
2. If there is suspected damage or actual damage, the trucker's receipt should be so noted.
3. If the dryer is damaged beyond repair, it should be refused. Those dryers which were not damaged in a
damaged shipment should be accepted, but the number received and the number refused must be noted
on the receipt.
4. If you determine that the dryer was damaged after the trucker has left your location, you should call the
delivering carrier's freight terminal immediately and file a claim. The freight company considers this
concealed damage. This type of freight claim is very difficult to get paid and becomes extremely difficult
when more than a day or two passes after the freight was delivered. It is your responsibility to file freight
claims. Dryer or parts damaged in transit cannot be claimed under warranty.
5. Freight claims are the responsibility of the consignee, and ALL claims must be filed at the receiving end.
ADC assumes no responsibility for freight claims or damages.
6. If you need assistance in handling the situation, please contact the ADC Traffic Manager at (508) 678-9000.
IMPORTANT: The dryer must be transported and handled in an upright position at all times.

fire hazard.
WARNING:
DO NOT use heat for drying articles that contain plastic, foam, sponge rubber, or
similarly textured rubber-like materials. Drying in a heated basket (tumbler) may
damage plastics or rubber and also may be a fire hazard.
7. A program should be established for the inspection and cleaning of lint in the burner area, exhaust duct work,
and area around the back of the dryer. The frequency of inspection and cleaning can best be determined from
experience at each location.
4
WARNING: This collection of lint in the burner area and exhaust duct work can create a potential fire
hazard.
8. For personal safety, the dryer must be electrically grounded in accordance with local codes and/or the
NATIONAL ELECTRIC CODE ANSI/NFPA NO. 70-LATEST EDITION, or in Canada, the

SECTION III
INSTALLATION PROCEDURES
Installation should be performed by qualified professionals in accordance with local and state codes. In the
absence of these codes, installation must conform to applicable AMERICAN NATIONAL STANDARDS:
ANSI Z223.1-LATEST EDITION (NATIONAL FUEL CODE)
or
ANSI/NFPA No. 70-LATEST EDITION (NATIONAL ELECTRIC CODE)
or in Canada, the installation must conform to applicable CANADIAN STANDARDS:
CAN/CGA-B149.1-M91 (Natural Gas) or CAN/CGA-B149.2-M91 (L.P. Gas) or LATEST EDITION
(for GENERAL INSTALLATION and GAS PLUMBING)
or
CANADIAN ELECTRICAL CODES PARTS 1 & 2 CSA C22.1-1990 or LATEST EDITION
(for ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS).
A. Unpacking/Setup
Remove stretch wrap protective cover, shipping corners, and top cover from dryer.
NOTE:
The access keys for the service doors are included in the information packet shipped in the
basket (tumbler). These keys should be removed and put in a safe place yet made
accessible because some will be needed throughout various phases in the installation of the
dryer.
Coin dryer’s are shipped with a coin box and coin box faceplate only. The coin box lock is not included and
must be purchased elsewhere or the lock can be ordered as a parts order from ADC factory.
The dryer can be moved to it’s final location while still attached to the skid or with the skid removed. To unskid
the dryer, locate and remove the four (4) bolts securing the base of the dryer to the wooden skid. Two (2) are
located at the rear of the base, and two (2) are located in the front. Once the bolts are removed, slide the dryer
off the skid.
With the skid removed, to make it easier to slide the dryer into its final position, slightly lower all leveling legs so
that the dryer will slide on the legs instead of the base frame. The dryer is equipped with four (4) leveling legs,
one at each corner of the dryer base. The slotted adjustment bolts for the two (2) front leveling legs are located
directly behind the lower access door, and the rear two (2) adjustments are directly behind the lower rear back
(guard) panel.
B. Location Of The Dryer
Before installing the dryer, be sure the location conforms to local codes and ordinances.
The dryer must be installed on a sound, level floor capable of supporting it’s weight. It is recommended that
carpeting be removed from the floor are on which the dryer is to rest.
8
Even though a 12-inch clearance is acceptable, it is recommended that the rear of the dryer be positioned
approximately 2 feet away from the nearest obstruction, i.e., wall, for ease of installation, maintenance, and
service.
1. Leveling The Dryer
To increase bearing life, improve efficiency, and provide for better automatic closure of main doors, the tumbler
should be tilted slightly to the rear. Four (4) leveling legs are provided for this purpose and are shipped inside the
top tumbler (basket) and must be installed at the time of installation. A leveling leg must be screwed into the
bottom of the dryer base at each corner area where the bolts used to secure the dryer to the wooden skid were
removed.
C. Dryer Enclosure Requirements
Bulkheads and partitions should be made of noncombustible materials and must be located a minimum of
6-inches above the dryer outer top, except along the front of the dryer which may be closed in if desired.
NOTE: Even though a minimum of 6-inches above the dryer outer top is acceptable, a clearance of
18-inches (or more) is suggested for ease of installation and service (power electrical connections).
NOTE: When fire sprinkler systems are located above the dryers, a minimum of 12-inches above the
dryer outer top is required.
9
D. Fresh Air Supply
Air supply (make-up air) must be given careful consideration to assure proper and safe performance of each
dryer. An unrestricted source of air of 550 cfm is necessary for each tumbler. An unrestricted air entrace from
the outdoors (atmosphere) of a minimum of 2 square feet is required for each dryer. This area must be enlarged
if louvers or registers cover the opening. It is not necessary to have a separate make-up air opening for each
dryer. Common make-up air is distributed equally to the dryers. However, they must be set up in such a manner
that the make-up air is distributed equally to the dryers. For example, for a bank of eight (8) dryers, a total makeup air opening of 16 square feet is required. Two (2) openings 2’ by 4’ (16 square feet) are acceptable.
Allowances must be made for remote or constricting passageways or where dryers are located at excessive
altitudes or predominantly low pressure areas.
IMPORTANT:
Make-up air must be provided from a source free of dry cleaning solvent fumes.
Make-up air contaminated by dry cleaning solvents will result in irreparable damage to
motors and dryer components.
IMPORTANT:
Make-up air openings should not be located near duct work exhaust outlets. If the
make-up air opening(s) are too close to the exhaust outlet, lint and fumes may be drawn
back into the dryer through these openings.
NOTE: Component failure due to dry cleaning solvent fumes will VOID THE WARRANTY.
10
E. Exhaust Requirements
General Information
Exhaust duct work should be designed and installed by a competent technician. Improperly sized duct work will
create excessive back pressure which results in slow drying, increased use of energy, and shutdown of the burner
by airflow (sail) switch, burner hi-limit, or lint chamber hi-heat protector thermostat.
Where possible, it is suggested that a sperate (single) exhaust duct for each dryer/tumbler be provided.
CAUTION: IMPROPERLY SIZED or INSTALLED EXHAUST DUCT WORK CAN
CREATE A POTENTIAL FIRE HAZARD.
CAUTION: DRYER MUST BE VENTED TO THE OUTDOORS.
The exhaust duct work should be laid out in such a way that the duct travels as directly as possible to the
outdoors with as few turns as possible. The shape of the duct work is not critical so long as the minimum crosssectional area is provided.
It is suggested that the use of 90º turns in ducting be avoided; use 30º or 45º angles instead.
The duct work should be smooth inside with no projections from the sheet metal screws or other obstructions
which collect lint. When adding ducts, the ducts to be added should overlap the duct to which it is connected.
ALL duct work joints must be taped to prevent moisture and lint from escaping into the building. Additionally,
inspection doors should be installed at strategic points in the exhaust duct work for periodic inspection and
cleaning.
The duct work material must meet applicable National, State, and Local codes, or in Canada, the duct work
material must meet applicable Canadian National, Provincial, and Local codes.
IMPORTANT: When connecting duct work to the dryer’s top basket (tumbler) exhaust duct work, be
sure that when screws are used they do not restrict the operation (both opening and
closing) of the damper.
NOTE: When the exhaust duct passes through a wall, ceiling, or roof made of combustible materials, the
opening must be 2-inches larger (all the way around) than the duct. The duct must be centered
within this opening.
To protect the outside end of horizontal duct work from the weather, a 90º elbow bent downward should be
installed where the exhaust exits the building. If the exhaust duct work travels vertically up through the roof, it
should be protected from the weather by using a 180º turn to point the opening downward. In either case, allow
at least twice the diameter of the duct between the duct opening and nearest obstruction.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT use screens or caps on the outside opening of exhaust duct work.
11
IMPORTANT:
NOTE:
Exhaust back pressure measured by a manometer at the dryer exhaust duct area
must not exceed 0.3 inches of water column.
Careful consideration should be given to where the exhaust duct is located in relation to the
make-up air openings. If make-up air opening is too close to exhaust outlet, lint and fumes
will be drawn back in to the dryer area through these openings.
If the length of the duct work run or quantity of elbows used exceeds the specifications noted in this booklet, the
cross-sectional area of the duct work must be increased in proportion to the number of elbows or duct run added.
IMPORTANT:
For extended duct work runs, the cross-sectional area of the duct can only be
increased to an extent. For extended duct work runs, a professional HVAC firm
should be consulted for proper venting information.
Duct work should be laid out in such a manner where allowances are made at the rear of the dryer for removal
of rear service panels/guards.
IMPORTANT:
Even though the dryer’s exhaust outlet size is six (6) inches in diameter (at both the
top basket [tumbler] damper duct and the bottom basket [tumbler] elbow where it
leaves the dryer), the minimum connection at the point of exit from the dryer
in ALL cases MUST BE increased. The amount of increase in diameter will
depend on the venting application/layout as described further in this manual.
IMPORTANT:
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES CAN THE DRYER BE VENTED TO
THE OUTDOORS USING A 6-INCH DIAMETER EXHAUST DUCT!!!
1. Exhaust Connections of Top and Bottom Baskets (Tumblers)
There is no common venting connection provided with the dryer. Each basket (tumbler) exhaust duct is provided
with its own back draft damper. Each basket (tumbler) can be exhausted directly outdoors independently (refer
to the illustration [MAN2114] on page 16) or connected commonly (“Y”) together (refer to the illustration
[MAN2113] on page 17). Both single or common “Y” duct can be rigid or flexible ducting.
12
The illustration below shows the duct work connection points and what internal duct work is included in the
dryer.
The exhaust connection at the TOP basket (tumbler) must be made at the blower duct inside the cabinet. No
internal duct work is included for the TOP basket/tumbler. (Not available from ADC and must be
purchased elsewhere). Depending on the external duct work layout, the installer has the option of the duct
work coming out of the top of the back of the dryer. The duck work used inside of the dryer, from the blower
duct to where it exits the dryer, must be a minimum of 6-inches in diameter (30 square inches cross-sectional
area). At this point (where the internal ducting ends) the diameter must be increased to meet the application
as described further in this manual.
IMPORTANT:
When connecting duct work to the top basket (tumbler) exhaust duct, be sure that
when screws are used they do not restrict the operation (both opening and closing)
of the damper.
IMPORTANT:
ALL duct work joints must be taped to prevent moisture and lint from escaping
into the dryer and/or building.
The BOTTOM basket (tumbler) includes 6-inch duct work which extends from the dryer blower duct to the
lower back guard area. At this point the diameter must be increased to meet the application as described
further in this manual.
13
a. Connecting Both Top Baskets (Tumbler) and Bottom Baskets (Tumbler) Together
Both the top basket (tumbler) and the bottom basket (tumbler) can “Y” together to form one connection point.
The bottom basket (tumbler) already includes 6-inch diameter ducting extending to the lower back guard area.
The minimum connection at this point is 8 inches. The upper basket (tumbler) includes no internal duct
work. (Not provided by ADC and must be purchased elsewhere, must be a minimum of 6-inches, and only to
the top of the dryer.) At this point (where the internal ducting ends at top of the dryer) the diameter must be
increased to meet the application as described further in this manual.
IMPORTANT:
When connecting duct work to the top basket (tumbler) exhaust duct, be sure that
when screws are used they do not restrict the operation (both opening and closing)
of the damper.
IMPORTANT:
ALL duct work joints must be taped to prevent moisture and lint from escaping
into the dryer and/or building.
NOTE: Common (“Y”) exhaust connections of the top basket (tumbler) and bottom basket (tumbler)
should be installed in such a manner that the back guards/panels can be removed easily for
servicing.
IMPORTANT:
Exhaust back pressure measured by a manometer at each basket (tumbler) exhaust
duct area should not exceed 0.3 inches water column when both baskets (tumblers)
are operating.
14
2. Single Dryer Venting
Where possible, it is suggested that a separate exhaust duct be provided for each dryer. The exhaust duct
work should be laid out in such a way that the duct work travels as directly as possible to the outdoors with as
few turns as possible. It is suggested that the use of 90º turns in ducting be avoided; use 30º or 45º angles
instead. The shape of the exhaust duct work is not critical so long as the minimum cross-sectional area is
provided.
IMPORTANT:
Exhaust back pressure measured by a manometer at the dryer exhaust duct area
should not exceed 0.3 inches water column.
If the length of the duct work run or quantity of elbows used exceeds the specifications noted in this manual,
the cross-sectional area of the duct work must be increased in proportion to the number of elbows or duct run
added.
a. Single Dryer Venting - with each basket (tumbler) independently vented all the way to the
outdoors.
IMPORTANT:
For extended duct work runs...or where numerous elbows are used, the crosssectional area can only be increased to an extent and a professional HVAC firm
should be consulted for proper venting information.
IMPORTANT:
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES CAN THE DRYER BE VENTED TO
THE OUTDOORS USING A 6-INCH DIAMETER EXHAUST DUCT!!!
Where independent exhaust ducting is used for each basket (tumbler), the connection size at the point where
the internal ducting (6-inch diameter) leaves the dryer, the minimum size connection is 8-inch diameter (54
square inches cross-sectional area)...and this is only true providing;
(Refer to illustration [MAN2114] on page 16 for details.)
1) The maximum duct run is no more than 20 feet.
2) The duct work is on a horizontal run (no riser).
3) There is no more than one (1) elbow...which includes the outside outlet (i.e., elbow used for
outside protection).
IMPORTANT:
Even though the dryer’s exhaust outlet size is six (6) inches in diameter (at both the
top basket [tumbler] elbow where it leaves the dryer), the minimum connection at
this point of exit from the dryer is 8-inches diameter (54 square inches crosssectional area).
15
16
b. Single Dryer Venting - with common (top basket [tumbler] and bottom basket [tumbler]
connected together) exhaust connections.
If the top and bottom baskets (tumblers) connect or “Y” together as noted is Section E1, the minimum
diameter size at the “Y” or point of connections is 10 inches in diameter (80 square inches cross-sectional
area). Additionally, the maximum duct work travel from the top of the dryer to the outside exhaust outlet must
not exceed fifteen (15) feet. Refer to the illustration [MAN2113] located above for examples.
The vertical ducting need not be a minimum of 10-inches in diameter all the way into the dryer. Connections
inside the dryer can be 6-inches in diameter for the top basket (tumbler) and for the bottom basket (tumbler)
increased to 8-inches up to the top area of the dryer and then at that point must be a minimum of 10-inches in
diameter (80 square inches cross-sectional area). Additionally, the length of the exhaust run cannot exceed
fifteen (15) feet from the top of the dryer to the point where the exhaust end outside.
3. Multiple Dryer Venting (with Common Main Duct)
If it is not feasible to provide separate exhaust ducts for each dryer, ducts from individual dryers or baskets
(tumblers) may be channeled into a common main duct. Each dryer/basket (tumbler) is provided with a back
draft damper. The individual ducts should enter the bottom or side of the main duct at an angle of not more
than 45º in the direction of the airflow.
17
The main common duct may be any shape so long as the minimum cross-sectional area is provided. The main
duct should be tapered with the diameter increasing before each individual duct is added as per the illustration
[MAN2172] on page 19 and the illustration [MAN2171] on page 20.
The maximum length of venting from the last dryer to where it exhausts is the following:
VERTICAL -------- venting run must not exceed eight (8) feet. This calculation compensates for the
use of maximum of three (3) elbows including the two (2) elbows creating 180º
(turned downward) outside outlet.
HORIZONTAL ----- venting run must not exceed fifteen (15) feet. This calculation compensates for the
use of maximum of only one (1) elbow which is the outside outlet protection.
IMPORTANT:
No more than four (4) dryers (eight [8] baskets [tumblers]) maximum should be
connected to one (1) main common duct. Refer to the applicable section of this
manual for specific common venting size.
NOTE: The distance between the dryer single ducts being connected to the main common duct must
be a minimum of 31-1/2 inches (the dryers width).
The duct work should be laid out in such a manner where allowances are made at the rear
area of the dryer for removal of rear service panels/guards.
The illustration [MAN2172] on page 19 and the illustration [MAN2171] on page 20 show the minimum crosssectional are for multiple dryer venting. These figures must be increased in proportion if the main duct run from
the last dryer to where it exhausts, has numerous elbows, or is unusually long.
IMPORTANT:
For extended duct work runs, the cross-sectional area of the duct can only be
increased to an extent. For extended duct work runs or where numerous elbows are
used, a professional HVAC firm should be consulted for proper venting information.
NOTE: Inspection doors should be installed at strategic points in the exhaust duct work for periodic
inspection and cleaning.
a. Multiple Dryer Venting - where each basket (tumbler) is individually vented.
With multiple venting where each basket is vented independently (a separate exhaust is used for each basket
[tumbler]) to the common main duct, a minimum of an 8-inch diameter duct (50 square inches cross-sectional
area) connection between the dryer and common main duct is acceptable providing this duct does not exceed
eight (8) feet in length.
IMPORTANT:
No more than four (4) dryers (eight [8] baskets [tumblers]) can be connected to one
(1) common duct (vent).
18
NOTE: The distance between the dryer single ducts being connected to the main common duct must
be a minimum of 31-1/2 inches (the dryers width).
NOTE: The duct work should be laid out in such a manner where allowances are made at the rear
area of the dryer for removal of rear service panels/guards.
IMPORTANT:
Individual ducts being added to the main common vent must enter the main common
vent duct work at an angle not more than 45º in the direction of the airflow.
The above illustration [MAN2172] shows the minimum cross-section area for multiple (common) dryer venting.
The maximum length of venting from the last dryer to where it exhausts is the following:
VERTICAL----------venting run must not exceed eight (8) feet.
HORIZONTAL-----venting run must not exceed fifteen (15) feet.
19
These figures must be increased in proportion if the main duct run from the last dryer has numerous elbows or is
unusually long. For extended runs or where more elbows are added, the cross-sectional area of the duct can only
be increased to an extent and a professional HVAC firm should be consulted for proper venting information.
IMPORTANT:
NOTE:
Exhaust back pressure measure by a manometer at the dryer exhaust duct must
not exceed 0.3 inches of water column when both baskets (tumblers) are operating.
Inspection doors should be installed at strategic points in the exhaust duct work for periodic
inspection and cleaning.
b. Multiple Dryer Venting - where tumblers of each dryer “Y” together.
With multiple venting where the top basket (tumbler) and bottom basket (tumbler) are connected or “Y” together
as described in Section E1 (page 12 through page 14), the minimum diameter size at the “Y” (point of connection) and main common duct is 10-inches in diameter (80 square inches cross-sectional). This duct run cannot
exceed eight (8) feet in length.
20
IMPORTANT:
NOTE:
No more then four (4) dryers (eight [8] baskets [tumblers]) can be connected to
one (1) common duct (vent).
The distance between the dryer single ducts being connected to the main common duct
must be a minimum of 31-1/2 inches (the dryers width).
The duct work should be laid out in such a manner where allowances are made at the
rear area of the dryer for removal of rear service panels/guards.
IMPORTANT:
Individual ducts being added to the main common vent must enter the main common
vent duct work at an angle not more than 45-degree in the direction of the airflow.
The illustration [MAN2171] on the previous page (page 20) shows the minimum cross-section area for
multiple (common) dryer venting.
The maximum length of venting from the last dryer to where it exhausts is the following:
VERTICAL---------venting run must not exceed eight (8) feet.
HORIZONTAL----venting run must not exceed fifteen (15) feet.
These figures must be increased in proportion if the main duct run from the last dryer has numerous elbows or
is unusually long. For extended runs or where more elbows are added, the cross-sectional area of the duct
can only be increased to an extent and a professional HVAC firm should be consulted form proper venting
information.
IMPORTANT:
NOTE:
Exhaust back pressure must not exceed 0.3 inches of water column when both
baskets (tumblers) are operating.
Inspection doors should be installed at strategic points in the exhaust duct work for periodic
inspection and cleaning
21
Important Venting Reminders
1. Duct work sizing and installation should be done by a qualified professional.
2. The dryer must be vented to the outdoors.
3. The duct work should be routed as short as possible to the outdoors with as few turns as possible.
4. Avoid 90º turns...use 30º or 45º turns instead.
5. The size (cross-sectional area) of the duct work will depend on the application (i.e.,single dryer venting,
common venting etc.), as well as the length of the duct and the amount of elbows. DO NOT EXCEED
THE SPECIFICATIONS NOTED IN THIS MANUAL.
IMPORTANT:
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES CAN THE DRYER BE VENTED TO
THE OUTDOORS USING A 6-INCH DIAMETER EXHAUST DUCT!!!
6. The inside of the duct work should be as smooth as possible...with no projections from the sheet metal
screws.
Ducts to be added should overlap the duct to which it is to be connected.
7. ALL ducts should be taped to prevent moisture and lint from escaping into the building.
8. Inspection/clean out doors should be installed throughout strategic points in the duct work for periodic
inspection and cleaning.
9. Wherever the duct passes through combustible materials, the opening must be 2-inches larger (all the
way around) than the duct. The duct must be centered within this opening.
10. The outside of the duct work must be protected from the weather. A 90º elbow must be used for a
horizontal run and when going vertically through the roof by using a 180º turn to point the opening
downward. The distance between the exhaust duct and the nearest obstruction (i.e., roof or ground) must
be twice the diameter of the duct.
11. DO NOT use screens or caps on the outside opening of the exhaust duct work.
12. The duct work exhaust outlets SHOULD NOT be located near make-up air openings. If make-up air
openings are located too close to the exhaust outlet, lint and fumes may be drawn back into the dryer area
through these openings.
13. Exhaust back pressure measured by a manometer at each basket (tumbler) exhaust duct should not exceed
0.3 inches water column when both baskets (tumblers) are operating.

Regulation is controlled by each gas valve’s internal regulator. Incoming supply pressure must be
consistent between a minimum of 6.0 inches and a maximum of 12 inches water column pressure.
c. Liquid Propane (L.P.) Gas
Dryers made for use with L.P. gas valve’s pressure regulator blocked open so that the gas pressure must
be regulated upstream of the dryer. The pressure measured at each gas valve body pressure tap must be
a consistent 10.5 inches water column. There is no regular provided in an L.P. dryer. The water column
pressure must be regulated at the source (L.P. tank), or an external regulator must be added to each dryer.
3.
Piping/Connections
ALL components/materials must conform to NATIONAL FUEL GAS CODE specifications, or in Canada, the
CANADIAN INSTALLATION CODES (for General Installation and Gas Plumbing).
It is important that the gas pressure regulators meet applicable pressure requirements and that gas meters be
rated for total amount of ALL the appliance Btu’s being supplied.
The dryer is provided with two (2) 3/4” N.P.T. inlet pipe connections (one for each basket/tumbler) at the rear of
the dryer. If a separate feed is provided for each basket (tumbler) from the main supply line (header), then a
3/4” line connection is sufficient. However, if the top basket (tumbler) and the bottom basket (tumbler) connections are connected together, the supply from the header must be increased to 1-inch (maximum fifty [50] feet to
the header). For typical gas connections refer to the illustration on page 28. It is recommended that a gas shutoff valve be provided to the gas supply line of each dryer basket (tumbler) for ease in servicing.
The size of the gas supply line (header) will vary, depending on the distance this supply line travels from the gas
meter (or in case of L.P. gas, the supply tank), the number of tees, other gas-operated appliances on the supply
line, ect. Specific information regarding supply line size should be determined by the gas supplier.
NOTE: Undersized gas supply piping can create a low or inconsistent gas pressure which will result in
erratic operation of the burner ignition system.
Consistent gas pressure is essential at ALL gas connections. It is recommended that 3/4” pipe loop be installed
in the supply line servicing the bank of dryers. An in-line pressure regulator must be installed in the gas supply
line (header) if natural gas line pressure exceeds 12.0 inches water column pressure. Refer to the illustration on
the following page (page 28) for details
27
IMPORTANT:Water column pressure of 4.0 inches for natural gas dryers and 10.5 inches for L.P. gas is
required at the gas valve pressure tap of each dryer for proper and safe operation.
A 1/8” N.P.T. plugged tap, accessible for a test gauge connection, must be installed in the main gas supply line
immediately upstream of each dryer.
IMPORTANT: Pipe joint compounds that resist the action of natural and L.P. gases must be used.
WARNING:
Test ALL connections for leaks by brushing on a soapy water solution (liquid detergent
also works well). NEVER TEST FOR A GAS LEAK WITH AN OPEN FLAME.
28
H. Preparation For Operation
The following items should be checked before attempting to operate the dryer:
1. Read and follow ALL “CAUTION”, “WARNING”, and “DIRECTION” labels attached to the dryer.
2. Check incoming supply voltage to be sure that it is the same as indicated on the dryer data label located
behind the left coin control panel, on the right wall (refer to SECTION IX [pages 48 and 49] of this
manual).
3. Check to assure that the dryer is connected to the type of heat/gas indicated on the dryer label.
4. The sail switch damper assemblies are installed and pre-adjusted at the factory prior to shipment.
However, each sail switch adjustment should be checked to assure this important safety control is
functioning.
5. Check bolts, nuts, screws, terminals, and fittings for security.
6. Be sure ALL gas shut-off valves are in the open position.
7. Be sure ALL back panels (guards) and electric box covers have been replaced.
8. Check ALL service doors to assure that they are closed and secured in place.
9. Rotate the baskets (tumblers) by hand to be sure they move freely.
I. Preoperational Tests
ALL dryers are thoroughly tested and inspected before leaving the factory. However , a preoperational test
should be performed before the dryer is publicly used. It is possible that adjustments have changed in transit.
1. Turn On Electrical Power To The Dryer
a. Open ALL gas shut-off valves.
2. Computer System Operational
a.
COIN MODELS ONLY
1) The LED display(s) will flash back and forth between “FILL” and the amount needed to start
the dryer (i.e., “25”), which means that the dryer is available and 25¢ is required to start it.
2) Insert the proper number of coins into coin acceptor. Once the correct amount needed to
start the dryer has been inserted, the LED display will read “PUSH”.
3) Start the dryer by pressing the desired setting (i.e., LOW TEMP). The LED display will now
read selection (setting) made and the amount of time vended (i.e., “LO 10”).
29
NOTE:
The dryer can be stopped at any time by opening the main door. To restart dryer, shut the
main door and press desired setting.
4) Open main door to stop dryer, and change selection to “PERM PRESS” (medium) setting.
Repeat this procedure, but change the selection (setting) to “HIGH TEMP”. This will confirm that
the selection key circuits are functioning properly.
NOTE: Selection (setting) changes can be made at any time during the drying cycle by opening and
closing the main door and then making a new selection.
5) Repeat above procedure for other basket (tumbler).
b. OPL (NON-COIN) MODELS ONLY
1) The LED display(s) will read “FILL”, which means that the dryer is available.
2) Start the dryer by pressing the desired setting “LOW TEMP”. The LED display will now
read selection (setting) made and the drying time portion of the LED display will read ”00”
and count upwards in time.
NOTE: The dryer can be stopped at any time opening the main door. To restart the dryer, shut the main
door and press the desired setting.
3) Open main door to stop the dryer, and change selection to “PERM PRESS” (medium) setting.
Repeat this procedure, but change the selection (setting) to “HIGH TEMP”. This will confirm

NOTE: Selection (setting) changes can be made at any time during the drying cycle by opening and closing
the main door and then making a new selection.
4) Repeat above procedure for the other basket (tumbler).
3. Heat Circuit Operational Test
a. GAS MODELS
When a gas dryer is first started (during the initial start-up), it has a tendency not to ignite on the first
attempt. This is because the gas supply piping is filled with air. It may take a few minutes for this air to
be purged from the lines.
30
The dryer is equipped with a Hot Surface Ignition (HSI) system which has internal diagnostics. If
ignition is not established after the first attempt, the heat circuit HSI module will try two (2) additional times
and if a flame is not established the HSI module will lock out until it is manually reset. To reset the HSI
system, open and close the main door and restart the dryer (press desired temperature selection).
NOTE: During the purging period, check to be sure that ALL gas shut-off valves are open.
Once ignition is established, a gas pressure reading should be taken at the gas valve pressure tap of each
dryer to assure that the water column pressure is correct and consistent.
NOTE: Water column pressure requirements (measured at the gas valve pressure tap from the manifold
side of the gas valve):
Natural Gas---------3.5 Inches W.C.
L.P. Gas-------------10.5 Inches W.C.
IMPORTANT: THERE IS NO REGULATOR PROVIDED IN AN L.P. DRYER. The water
column pressure must be regulated at the source (L.P. tank) or an external regular must
be added to each dryer.
4. Make a complete operational check of ALL safety-related circuits (i.e., lint basket switches and
sail switches).
NOTE: The sail switch can be checked for proper operation by opening the main door, and while
holding the main door switch in, start the dryer. The heating units should not come on. If it
does, make the necessary adjustments.
5. Each basket (tumbler) SHOULD BE operated through one (1) complete cycle to assure that no
further adjustments are necessary and that ALL components are functioning properly.
IMPORTANT: The dryer baskets (tumblers) are treated with a protective coating. This coating can be
removed by tumbling old clothes or material in the baskets (tumblers) using a mild
detergent to remove the protective coating.
NOTE:
Drying and cooling cycles are complete when the LED display reads “donE”.
6. Computer Programs/Selections
Each Microprocessor controller (computer) has been preprogrammed by the factory with the most
commonly used program (parameter) selections. If (computer) program changes are required, refer to the
Microprocessor Controller (Computer) Programming Manual which was shipped with the dryer.

SECTION VII
ROUTINE MAINTENANCE
A. Cleaning
A program and/or schedule should be established for periodic inspection, cleaning and removal of lint from
various areas of the dryer, as well as throughout the duct work system. The frequency of cleaning can best be
determined from experience at each location. Maximum operating efficiency is dependant upon proper air
circulation. The accumulation of lint can restrict this air flow. If the guidelines in this section are met, an ADC
dryer will provide many years of efficient, trouble-free, and most importantly, safe operation.
WARNING: LINT FROM MOST FABRICS IS HIGHLY COMBUSTIBLE. THE
ACCUMULATION OF LINT CAN CREATE A POTENTIAL FIRE HAZARD.
WARNING: KEEP DRYER AREA CLEAR AND FREE FROM COMBUSTIBLE
MATERIALS, GASOLINE, and OTHER FLAMMABLE VAPORS and LIQUIDS.
WARNING: TO AVOID THE HAZARD OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK, DISCONTINUE
ELECTRICAL SUPPLY TO THE DRYER
NOTE:
Suggested time intervals shown are for average usage which is considered six (6) to eight (8)
operational (running) hours per day.
DAILY (beginning of every work shift)
Clean lint from basket(s)/tumbler(s)
Inspect lint screen(s)/drawer(s) for damage and replace if torn.
WEEKLY
Clean lint accumulation from around microprocessor sensor probes and sensor bracket assemblies.
90 DAYS
Remove lint from the motor air vents and surrounding area.
IMPORTANT: Lint accumulation will restrict the airflow over the motor(s), causing over heating and
irreparable motor damage. Motor failure due to lint accumulation will VOID THE
WARRANTY.
38
Remove lint accumulation from around the openings in the dryer’s back panels.
Remove lint from gas valve burner train area with a dusting brush of vacuum cleaner attachment.
Remove any lint accumulation from the coin acceptor area, including the optical switch.
Inspect and remove lint accumulation in customer-furnished exhaust duct work system and from the dryer’s
internal exhaust ducting.
WARNING: THE ACCUMULATION OF LINT IN THE EXHAUST DUCT WORK CAN
CREATE A POTENTIAL FIRE HAZARD.
WARNING: DO NOT OBSTRUCT THE FLOW OF COMBUSTION AIR and
VENTILATION AIR.
Inspect and remove lint accumulation from the dryer’s exhaust duct work back draft dampers.
NOTE: A back draft damper that is sticking partially closed can result in slow drying and shutdown of the
heat circuit safety switches and/or thermostats.
6 MONTHS
In the cleaning of the dryer cabinet, avoid using harsh abrasives. A product for the cleaning of appliances is
recommended.
ALL bearings and set screws should be checked to insure they are tight.
B. Adjustments
7 Days After Installation and Every 6 Months Thereafter
Inspect bolts, nuts, screws (bearing set screws), non-permanent gas connections (unions, shut-off valves, orifices, ect.), electrical terminals, and grounding connections.
Tighten loose belt(s) when necessary and check the alignment.
Inspect drive (motor/impellor [fan]) shaft belt. A cracked or seriously frayed belt(s) should be replaced. Tighten
loose belt(s) when necessary and check the alignment.
Complete operational check of controls and valves.
Complete operational check of ALL safety devices (door switches, lint compartment switches, sail switches,
burner and hi-limit thermostats).
39
C. Lubrication
The motor bearings, idler bearings, and tumbler bearings are permanently lubricated. NO LUBRICATION
IS NECESSARY.
