B. UNPACKING and SETTING UP
1. Inside the tumbler of this dryer there is an exhaust transition piece that must be installed on the outlet of the
exhaust before any further venting is connected to do this follow this procedure:
a. Remove the exhaust transition piece from the tumbler and place on the exhaust outlet.
b. Using the screws provided secure the exhaust transition piece to the dryer.
NOTE: It is recommended that this joint be taped as well as all other duct work joints to prevent moisture
and lint from escaping into the building.

C. DRYER ENCLOSURE REQUIREMENTS
It is recommended that the rear of the dryer be positioned approximately three (3) feet (36-inches) from the
nearest obstruction (i.e., wall) for ease of installation, maintenance, and service. Bulkheads and partitions should
be made from noncombustible materials. The clearance between the bulkhead header and the dryer must be a
minimum of 4 inches and must not extend more than 4 inches to the rear of the dryer front. The bulkhead facing
must not be closed in all the way to the top of the dryer. A 2-inch clearance is required.
NOTE: Bulkhead facing should not be installed until after dryer is in place. Ceiling area
must be located a minimum of 12 inches above the top of the dryer.
IMPORTANT: Even though a minimum of only 12 inches is required, 18 inches or more is
suggested, for steam dryers and especially in cases where sprinkler heads are
over the dryers.
NOTE: When fire sprinkler systems are located above the dryers, a minimum of 18 inches
above the dryer console (module) is suggested. Dryers may be positioned side wall
to side wall however, 1 or 2-inches is suggested between dryers (or wall) for ease of
installation and maintenance. Allowances must be made for the opening and closing
of the control and lint doors.

D. EXHAUST REQUIREMENTS
1. GENERAL EXHAUST DUCT WORK INFORMATION
Exhaust duct work should be designed and installed by a qualified professional. Improperly sized duct
work will create excessive back pressure which results in slow drying, increased use of energy,
overheating of the dryer, and shutdown of the burner by the airflow (sail) switches, burner hi-limits, or
basket (tumbler) hi-heat thermostats.
CAUTION: DRYER MUST BE EXHAUSTED TO THE OUTDOORS.
CAUTION: IMPROPERLY SIZED OR INSTALLED EXHAUST DUCT WORK CAN
CREATE A POTENTIAL FIRE HAZARD.
NOTE: When a dryer is exhausted separately, it is recommended that a back draft damper be
installed.
NOTE: When dryers are exhausted into a multiple (common) exhaust line, each dryer must be
supplied with a back draft damper.
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. Single or independent dryer venting is
recommended. When single dryer venting is used, the duct work from the dryer to the outside exhaust
outlet should not exceed twenty(20) feet. In the case of multiple (common) dryer venting, the distance
from the last dryer to the outside exhaust outlet should not exceed twenty(20) feet. The shape of the
duct work is not critical so long as the minimum cross section area is provided. It is suggested that the
use of 90º turns in ducting be avoided; use 30º and/or 45º angles instead. The radius of the elbows should
preferably be 1-1/2 times the diameter of the duct. Including basket/dryer elbow connections or elbows
used for outside protection from the weather, no more than one (1) elbow should be used for a horizontal
exhaust duct run and no more than three (3) for a vertical exhaust duct run. If more elbows are used, the
cross section area of the duct work must be increased in proportion to number of elbows added.
ALL duct work should be smooth inside with no projections from sheet metal screws or other obstructions
which will 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 cleanout of lint from the duct work.
IMPORTANT: Exhaust back pressure measured by a manometer at the dryer exhaust duct area must
not exceed 0.3 inches of water column.
5
NOTE: Where the exhaust duct work 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.
a.Outside Duct Work Protection
1) To protect the outside end of horizontal duck work from the weather, a 90° 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 180° turn to point the
opening downward. In either case, allow at least twice the diameter of the duct between the duct
opening and the nearest obstruction.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT use screens or caps on the outside of opening of exhaust duct work.
6
2. SINGLE DRYER VENTING
Where possible, it is suggested to provide a separate exhaust duct for each dryer. The exhaust duct
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 90° turns in ducting be avoided; use 30° and/or 45°
angles instead. The shape of the exhaust duct work is not critical so long as the minimum cross section
area is provided.
IMPORTANT: Minimum duct size for a gas dryer or 72 Kw electric dryer is 14 inches for
a round duct or 12.50" for a square duct. The minimum duct size for a
steam dryer or 80 Kw electric dryer is 16 inches for a round duct or
14.50" x 14.50" for a square duct. Duct size must not be reduced anywhere
down stream of dryer.
IMPORTANT: Exhaust back pressure measured by a manometer at each basket (tumbler)
exhaust duct area should not exceed 0.3 inches of water column.
It is suggested that the duct work from each dryer (minimum 14 inches for a gas dryer or 72 Kw electric
dryer and 16 inches for a steam dryer or 80 Kw electric dryer) not exceed twenty (20) feet with no more
than one (1) elbow should be used for a horizontal exhaust duct run and no more than three (3) for a
horiztonal duct run (including dryer connections and outside exhaust outlets). If the duct work exceeds
twenty (20) feet or has numerous elbows, the cross section area of the duct work must be increased in
proportion to the length and number of elbows in it. In calculating duct size, the cross section area of a
square or rectangular duct must be increased by twenty (20) percent for each additional twenty (20) feet.
The diameter of a round exhaust duct should be increased ten (10) percent for each additional fifteen (15)
feet. Each 90° elbow is equivalent to an additional thirty (30) feet, and each 45° elbow is equivalent to an
additional fifteen (15) feet.
7
IMPORTANT: For extended duct work runs, the cross section area of the duct can only be
increased to an extent. When the duct work approaches the maximum limits as
noted in this manual, a professional heating venting air conditioning (HVAC)
firm should be consulted for proper venting information.
ALL duct work should be smooth inside with no projections from sheet metal screws or other obstructions
which will collect lint. When adding ducts, the duct to be added should overlap the duct to which it is to be
connected. ALL duct work joints must be taped to prevent moisture and lint from escaping into the building.
Inspection doors should be installed at strategic points in the exhaust duct work for periodic inspection and
clean-out of lint from the duct work.
NOTE: Where 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.
a. Outside Duct Work Protection
1) To protect the outside end of horizontal duct work from the weather, a 90° 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 180° 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, louvers, or caps on the outside of opening of exhaust duct
work.
3. MULTIPLE DRYER (COMMON) VENTING
If it is not feasible to provide separate exhaust ducts for each dryer, ducts from individual dryers may be
channeled into a "common main duct". The individual ducts should enter the bottom or side of the main
duct at an angle not more than 45° in the direction of air flow and should be spaced at least 48-3/8 inches
apart. The main duct should be tapered, with the diameter increasing before each individual 14-inch
(minimum for gas dryers or 72 Kw electric dryers) or 16-inch (minimum for steam dryers or 80 Kw electric
dryers) duct is added.
IMPORTANT:
The AD-120ES is not provided with a back draft damper. When exhausted into
a multiple (common) exhaust line, a back draft damper must be installed at
each dryer duct.
IMPORTANT: No more than four (4) dryers should be connected to one main common duct.
8
The main duct may be any shape or cross sectional area, so long as the minimum cross section area is provided.
The illustrations on pages 10 and 11 show the minimum cross section area for multiple dryer round or square
venting. These figures must be increased 10 square inches when rectangular main ducting is used, and the ratio
of duct width to depth should not be greater than 3-1/2 to 1. These figures must be increased in proportion if the
main duct run to the last dryer to where it exhausts to the outdoors is unusually long (over twenty [20] feet) or has
numerous elbows (more than one [1] elbow) in it. In calculating duct work size, the cross section area of a square
or rectangular duct must be increased twenty (20) percent for each additional twenty (20) feet. The diameter of
a round exhaust must be increased ten (10) percent for each additional twenty (20) feet. Each 90° elbow is
equivalent to an additional thirty (30) feet, and each 45º elbow is equivalent to an additional fifteen (15) feet..
IMPORTANT: For extended duct work runs, the cross section area of the duct work can only be
increased to an extent. When the duct work approaches the maximum limits as noted
in this manual, a professional HVAC firm should be consulted for proper venting
information.
IMPORTANT: Exhaust back pressure measured by a manometer at each dryer exhaust duct area
should not exceed 0.3 inches of water column.
The duct should be smooth inside with no projections from sheet metal screws or other obstructions which will
collect lint. When adding ducts, the duct to be added should overlap the duct to which it is to be connected.
ALL duct work joints must be taped to prevent moisture and lint from escaping into the building. Inspection
doors should be installed at strategic points in the exhaust duct work for periodic inspection and clean-out of
lint from the duct work.
NOTE: Where the exhaust 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.
a. Outside Duck Work Protection
1) To protect the outside end of horizontal duct work from the weather, a 90° 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 180° 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, louvers, or caps on the outside of opening of exhaust
duct work.
