Gas Appliance Classifications for Approved Venting Methods based on CEN-report CR1749:2001.
There is a difference between the gas connection diameter and the diameter of the supply line. Always use the most adequate dia of the supply
line to minimize the pressue drop through the gas pipes - if necessary, reduce the diameter of the supply line at the inlet of the unit.
3) Height from floor to bottom surface of heater. These are recommendations only. Positioning of unit heaters for proper performance is
application dependent. Operation is affected by other air moving equipment in the space, obstructions to the airflow, draughts and/or close
proximity to doors or windows, etc ... Care should be taken to avoid mounting the heaters above thse recommendations, unless downturn nozzle
options are used, as significant stratification may occur resulting in poor floor coverage and higher energy losses through the roof structure.
0710UPA-GBEN, Pag. 6/33
7. Flue
requirements
Model UPA heaters may only be installed as Type-B installations.
Flue must be in accordance with BS6230 or BS5440. Local requirements may
apply in addition to national requirements. These unit heaters are designed to
operate safely and efficiently with either a horizontal or vertical flue system when
installed with the specific requirements and instructions .
If this heater is replacing an existing heater, be sure that the flue is sized properly
for the heater being installed and that the existing flue is in good condition. A
properly sized flue system is required for safe operation of the heater. An improperly
sized flue system can cause unsafe conditions and/or create condensation.
The air heaters may only be installed as a power vented heater (type B) (the
combustion air is taken from the space where heater is installed), which requires
only a flue pipe exhausting to outdoors.
All products of combustion must be flued to outdoor atmosphere.
Each heater installed as a type B appliance must be fitted with an individual flue
pipe and the combustion air inlet opening is provided with a protection grill.
IMPORTANT :
The flue must be installed in accordance with national and local
regulations. Failure to provide proper flueing could result in death, serious
injury and/or property damage. The air heater must be installed with a
flue to the outside of the building. Safe operation of any power vented
gas apparatus requires a properly operating flue system, correct provision
for combustion air and regular maintenance and inspection.
Diameter & maximum
flue pipe lengths
Flue pipe diameters and maximum pipe lengths in table 5 apply to both horizontal
and vertical systems. Add all straight sections and equivalent lengths for elbow.
The total combined length must not exceed the maximum flue length.

Flue outlet
Venter outlet attachment requirements:
Depending on the size of the flue pipe as determined in table 5, attach either the
flue pipe directly to the collar or a taper-type connector.
Flues for power
vented installations
(type B appliances)
If the air heater is to be installed as a type B appliance, air for combustion will be
taken from within the space where the heater is installed. Ensure that an adequate
air supply for combustion and ventilation is provided within the building in accordance
with BS6230/BS5440 plus other relevant regulations and rules in force.
Single wall flue seamless aluminium or stainless steel pipes are required. All joints
must be sealed to prevent products of combustion from leaking into the building. If
the flue passes through a combustible element of the building it must be enclosed
by a sleeve of non-combustible material and separated from the sleeve by a minimum
of 25 mm air break. The temperature of any combustible material near to the flue
must not exceed 65°C when the heater is in operation. The flue must be at least
150 mm away from any combustible material.
Single wall flue pipe exposed to cold air or run through unheated areas should be
insulated. Where condensation is unavoidable, provision must be made for the
condensation to flow freely to a point to which it can be released, i.e. a drain or
gully. The condensation drain from the flue must be constructed from non-corrodible
material not less than 20 mm diameter. Copper or copper based alloys must not be
used for condensation drains.

Mod. 40 & 50
Air supply
WARNING :
When these air heaters are
installed in type B applications, designed to take air for
combustion from the space in
which it is installed. Do not
restrict the combustion air
intake.
Figure 5
Mod. 30, 60, 70 & 90
It is important to ensure that there is an adequate air supply at all times for both
combustion and heating requirements. Modern buildings involve greater use of
insulation, improved vapour barriers, and weather proofing. These practices mean
that buildings are sealed much tighter than in the past.
Proper combustion air supply for a power vented Type B installation requires
ventilation of the heated space. Natural infiltration of air may not be adequate. Use
of exhaust fans aggravates this situation. It is important to ensure that there is
adequate combustion air supply at all times. Reliance on doors and windows is not
allowed.
Always ensure that adequate combustion air is provided to suit the total
installation of all combustion equipment in accordance with BS6230 or BS
5440 as appropriate.
Ensure that the air combustion inlet opening at the rear side of the unit cannot be
obstructed (cfr. fig. 4 & 5).
0710UPA-GBEN, Pag. 9/33
8. Location heater
Remark:
Flue requirements may
affect location. Consult
section 7 before making
a final determination.
Use the minimum clearances and venting table in section 5 and the throw data in
the technical data table of section 6 when determining where to suspend the heater.
Recommended minimum height is 2.5m.
WARNING: If touched, the vent pipe and internal heater surfaces that
are accessible from outside the heater will cause burns. Suspend the
heater such that these components cannot be touched.
For best results, the heater should be placed with certain rules in mind. Always
ensure that minimum clearances are obtained. Locating a unit heater above the
maximum recommended height can result in significant air stratification. When
possible, heaters should be arranged to blow toward or along exposed wall surfaces.
Suspended heaters are most effective when located as close to the working zone
as possible, but care should be exercised to avoid directing the discharged air directly
on to room occupants.
Partitions, columns, counters, or other obstructions should be taken into consideration
when locating the unit heater so that a minimum quantity of airflow will be deflected
by such obstacles.
When units are located in the centre of the space to be heated, the air should be
discharged toward the exposed walls. In large areas, units should be located to
discharge air along exposed walls with extra units provided to discharge air in toward
the centre of the area. For optimum results heaters are best used in conjunction
with recirculating air fans suspended at high level.
At those points where infiltration of cold air is excessive, such as at entrance doors
and shipping doors, it is desirable to locate the unit so that it will discharge directly
toward the source of cold air, typically from a distance of 4.5 to 6.0 meters or install
a downflow unit over the door opening.
CAUTION : Do not locate the heater where it may be exposed to water.
Hazards of Chlorine apply to the location
of the combustion air
inlet
The presence of chlorine vapors in the combustion air of gas-fired heating equipment
presents a potential corrosion hazard. Chlorine, found usually in the form of freon
or degreaser compounds, when exposed to a flame will precipitate from the
compound, and go into solution with any condensation that is present in the heat
exchanger or associated parts. The result is hydrochloric acid which readily attacks
all metals. Care should be taken to separate these vapours from the combustion
process. This may be done by wise location of the unit flue and combustion air
terminals with regard to exhausters or prevailing wind directions. Chlorine is heavier
than air. Keep this fact in mind when determining installation location of the heater
in relation to building exhaust systems. Where chlorine vapours are prevalent heaters
with special grade 316 A1S1 stainless steel heat exchangers are recommended.

9. Hanging
the heater
WARNING:
Check the supporting
structure to verify that it
has sufficient load-carrying
capacity to support the unit
weight. Suspend the heater
only from the threaded nut
retainers or with a
manufacturer provided kit.
DO NOT suspend from the
heater cabinet panels.
Before suspending the heater, check the supporting structure to verify that it has
sufficient load-carrying capacity to support the weight of the unit.

service. NEVER TEST FOR
LEAKS WITH AN OPEN
FLAME. Failure to comply
could result in personal
injury, property damage or
death.
Warning : This appliance is equipped for a maximum gas supply pressure
of 50 mbar.
WARNING : Pressure testing supply piping
Test pressures above 50mbar : Disconnect the heater and manual valve from
the gas supply line which is to be tested. Cap or plug the supply line.
Test pressures below 50mbar : Before testing, close the manual valve on the
heater.
All piping must be in accordance with requirements outlined in the National Gas
Codes (different for each country). Gas supply piping installation should also
conform with good practice and any local codes. Support gas piping with pipe
hangers, metal strapping, or other suitable material. Do not rely on the heater to
support the gas pipe.
All sealing products shall be resistant to the action of liquefied petroleum gas or any
other chemical constituents of the gas being supplied.
Install a ground joint union and manual shutoff the gas cock upstream of the unit
control system.
The unit is equipped with a nipple that extends outside the cabinet. The gas connection
is 1/2” or 3/4”, dependent on the size of the unit.
Leak test all connections by brushing on a leak detecting solution.

9. Thermostat calls for heat, energyzing the venter motor.
10. When adequate air flow for combustion is proven by an air proving switch
and a prepurge period has elapsed, the integral ignitor and multifunctional
gas control operate. The ignition spark ignites the gas creating the burner
flame.
11. Burner flame is sensed by a flame rod sensor and when the heat exchanger is warmed up (+/- 30 seconds) and the fan control relay closes,
the fan motor is energized.
12. If the flame is extinguished during the main burner operation, the integrated control system closes the main valve and attempts to relight the
burner. The unit will attempt 5 ignitions before entering a “lock out” mode.
Lock out is indicated by the red warning light on the heater. To end this
mode push on the reset switch.
13. To turn the heater ‘OFF’ for short periods : adjust the room thermostat to
its lowest setting or ‘OFF’. The fan will continue to run to cool the heater
and then switch off automatically.
14. To turn the heater ‘OFF’ for long periods : see ‘To turn off gas supply at
the appliance’ below.
TO TURN OFF GAS SUPPLY AT THE APPLIANCE

Burner gas pressure
adjustment
The gas pressure is set for the required heat input before the appliance leaves the
factory. Provided that the gas supply to the air heater is in accordance with the
supply pressure described on the appliance data plate, the operating pressure will
not require adjustment. To check the pressure use the following procedure:
* Ascertain from the heater’s data plate the correct operating gas pressure;
* Turn the room thermostat control to its lowest setting;
* Remove the screw from the burner pressure test point of the multi-functional
control valve. Connect a manometer to the test point( see figure 10a & 10b);
* Adjust the room thermostat to call for heat i.e. above room ambient temperature;
* Observe the burner gas pressure on the manometer and compare to the required
pressure on the data plate;
* If necessary, adjust the burner gas pressure. Remove the cover screw (models
40 - 90) or cover cap (model 30). Turn the regulator screw anti-clockwise to
decrease pressure or clockwise to increase pressure (see figure 10a & 10b);
* Set room thermostat to lowest setting to turn OFF the burners. Replace the
test point screw/cap and with the main burner OFF, test for gas soundness
using a leak detector fluid.
Reset temperature control/room thermostat to comfort operating level.

gas valve
WARNING: The operating
valve is the prime safety
shutoff. All gas supply lines
must be free of dirt or scale
before connecting to the unit
to ensure correct sealing.
The main operating quick opening gas valve is powered through the thermostat and
safety controls. The main control valve is of the diaphragm type providing regulated
gas flow and is preset at the factory. The gas valve requires no field maintenance
except careful removal of external dirt accumulation and checking of wiring
connections. Instructions for testing pressure settings are in section 12.

23.
Limit
controls
If a limit control needs replacing,
use only the factory authorized
replacement part for the size of
heater.
For approximate limit locatins, see
figure 11a..
The combustion air pressure switch ensures that proper combustion airflow is
available. The switch senses the differential pressure between the negative
pressure in the flue gas collector box and the pressure in the control section.
(For switch location, see figure 11b.)
On startup when the heater is cold, the sensing pressure is at the most negative
level, and as the heater and flue system warm up, the sensing pressure becomes
less negative.
If a restriction or excessive flue pipe length cause the sensing pressure to be
below the allowable level, the pressure switch will shut off the main burner.
Figure 22
See figure 11b, for location. If it is
determined that the pressure
switch needs replacing, use only
the factory-authorized replacement part that is designed for the
model and size of heater being
serviced.
All units are equipped with temperature activated limit controls. The controls
are factory set and non-adjustable. If either setpoint is reached, the corresponding
limit control will interrupt the electric power to the gas valve. These safety
devices provide protection in the case of motor failure or lack of airflow due to
restrictions. (For locations, see figure 11a.)
