3 GENERAL BOILER INFORMATION
3.1
GAS SUPPLY
The meter and supply pipes must be capable of delivering the required quantity of gas in addition to the demand from any
other appliances in the house.
Refer to Technical performance data in Section 2.1 and 2.2.
The complete installation, including the meter, must be tested for gas tightness and purged as described in BS 6891.
3.2
ELECTRICAL SUPPLY
The boiler requires a 230/240 V ~ 50 Hz mains supply, fused at 3 A
The boiler must be earthed.
There must only be one common isolator, providing complete electrical isolation, for the boiler and any external controls.
This boiler has been fitted with a supply cable, however, if it is necessary to fit a cable use PVC insulated cable not less than
0.75 mm² (24 x 0.2 mm) to BS 6500 Table 16. The boiler should be connected to a fused three pin plug and unswitched shuttered
socket outlet (both complying with BS 1363), or a fused double pole switch with a contact separation of at least 3 mm in both poles.
Wiring external to the boiler must be in accordance with the current IEE Wiring Regulations (BS 7671).
Note: If a room thermostat is fitted, it must be suitable for 230/240 V switching.
3.3
AIR SUPPLY
The boiler does not require any air vents for cooling in the room in which it is installed or when installed in a cupboard or
compartment. The minimum clearances for servicing must always be maintained.
Note: A cupboard or compartment used to enclose the boiler must be designed and constructed specifically for the purpose,
i.e. comply with the Building Regulations.
3.4
FLUE SYSTEM - Fig. 3
The flue system must be installed in accordance with BS 5440:1.
For horizontal flues ensure that the Easy-Flue outer duct is installed horizontally (please note that the Easy-Flue inner duct
already has a pre-determined slope towards the boiler for condensate to run back towards the boiler).
When additional flue extensions are used, ensure the flue slopes downwards towards the boiler by a minimum of 25 - 30 mm
per metre of flue.
It is recommended that horizontal flue assemblies should be supported approximately every 1.5 m with access provided to
the joints.
Flue components are available as follows:CD Easy-Flue 500 mm (includes 90° bend and terminal) - Part No. 6.2000510.
CD Easy-Flue 1000 mm (includes 90° bend and terminal) - Part No. 6.2001010.
CD 750 mm flue extension - Part No. 6.2000750.
CD 1000 mm flue extension - Part No. 6.2001050.
CD 100 mm flue support brackets (pack of 5) - Part No. 6.1000355.
CD 90° bend - Part No. 6.2000590.
CD 45° bend - Part No. 6.2000545.
CD Vertical flue terminal assembly. Refer to the separate installation instructions supplied with the assembly.
CD Ridge flue terminal assembly. Refer to separate installation instructions supplied with assembly.
The following methods determine the correct length of flue required.
For rear exit flue (including terminal)
L = B + 160 mm (205 mm if wall jig is used)
For side exit flue (including terminal) L = B + C + 245 mm (min. side clearance required is 5 mm)
For vertical flue L = H - 1000 mm for vertical terminal assembly
Where L = Required flue length
B =Finished wall thickness
C =Distance from the inside wall to the side of the boiler
H =Distance from top of boiler side panel to roof position
Note: 1. If an extra 90° bend is used, this reduces the maximum flue length by 1.3 m. Each 45° bend used reduces the
maximum flue length by 0.9 m.
2. Under no circumstances must the flue length (including allowances for extra bends) exceed 12 metres horizontally
and 14 metres vertically.
3. Failure to use Alpha CD flue components with the boiler will invalidate the boilers CE approval, guarantee and may
be unsafe.
4. Further plume management flue accessories are available - refer to the Easy-Flue installation instructions.

Notes:
1.
In addition, the terminal should not be nearer than 150 mm to the framework of an opening into the building, i.e. a
window surround or door surround.
2.
This clearance may be reduced to 25 mm without effecting the performance of the boiler. However, to ensure the
condensate plume does not affect adjacent surfaces a clearance of 300 mm is preferable.
3.
These clearances may be reduced to 25 mm without effecting the performance of the boiler. However, to ensure the
condensate plume does not affect adjacent surfaces the terminal can be extended beyond gutters, pipes, eaves,
balconies etc. by upto 500 mm. If the flue is extended more than 500 mm outside, it should be boxed and insulated.
4.
To reduce the possibility of nuisance to neighbouring buildings etc. it is recommended the terminal should not be less
than 2500 mm from car parking spaces, building boundary walls, fences etc.
5.
A terminal must not be sited under a car port roof.
6.
In certain weather conditions the terminal will emit a plume of steam. If possible avoid positioning the terminal where
this may cause a nuisance, i.e. positions A, D, G, H, J or M.
7.
The flue terminal must be exposed to the external air and the position must allow the free passage of air across it at all times.
8.
A terminal must not be sited below 2 m where people have access to, such as public footpaths, access routes, patios
etc. However, If the terminal is fitted less than 2 m above a surface where there is no public access, the terminal must
be protected by a terminal guard. A suitable guard is available from Alpha Therm Ltd.

BOILER LOCATION
The boiler is not suitable for external installation unless it is installed within a purpose designed weatherproof building.
The boiler must be installed on a flat vertical wall which is capable of supporting the weight of the boiler. The boiler can be
fitted to or adjacent to a wall comprising of a combustible material without the need for a special thermal insulation barrier.
If the boiler is to be fitted in a timber framed building, it should be fitted in accordance with the Institute of Gas Engineers
'Guide for Gas Installations in Timber Frame Housing', reference IGE/UP/7.
The boiler may be installed in any room or internal space, although particular attention is drawn to the requirements of the
current IEE Wiring (BS 7671) Regulations, and in Scotland, the electrical provisions of the Building Regulations applicable in
Scotland, with respect to the installation of the boiler in a room or internal space containing a bath or shower. Where a roomsealed boiler is installed in a room containing a bath or shower, it must not be possible for a person using the bath or shower
to touch any electrical switch or boiler control utilising mains electricity.
The boiler may be installed in a cupboard or compartment, provided it is correctly designed for that purpose, i.e. complies
with the Building Regulations and the requirements of BS 6798.

CENTRAL HEATING SYSTEM - Fig. 6
The boiler is designed for use in a sealed central heating system in accordance with the requirements of BS EN 12828 and BS 6798.
The system should be designed to operate with flow temperatures of up to 82°C. When designing the system, the pump head,
expansion vessel size, mean radiator temperature, etc. must all be taken into account. Refer to the pump performance table
for guidelines.
System volume - The expansion vessel incorporated into the boiler is suitable for a sealed heating system with a maximum
water content of 80 litres (18 gal). Above 80 litres, consideration should be given to fitting an additional expansion vessel
fitted in the position shown in Fig. 6. To check correct operation of the expansion vessel(s) the system pressure should not be
more than 2.5 bar when the system is at maximum operating temperature (for further guidance refer to BS 7074:1).
The boiler is supplied with the following components built in:Pressure relief valve - complying with BS 6759 and set to operate at 3 bar. The discharge pipe must be routed clear of the
boiler and terminated in such a manner that it can be seen, but cannot cause injury to persons or property.
Pressure gauge - To indicate the system pressure to be maintained.
Expansion vessel - Conforming to BS 4814 with a capacity of 8 litres and pre-charged to a pressure of 1.0 bar.
By-pass - The boiler incorporates an automatic by-pass, therefore an automatic by-pass is not required for the system.
Cyclone (if applicable) - This is a device fitted in the heating return within the optional Premier Pack wall jig to remove any
foreign or solid matter etc. from the system.

FILLING THE CENTRAL HEATING SYSTEM - Fig. 7
The system design pressure (cold) should be set to 1.0 bar. This pressure is equivalent to a static head (see Fig. 6) of 10.2
metres of water.
Provision must be made for filling the system. This is done by the use of a filling loop. See Fig. 7.
A filling loop must be supplied by the installer.
Filling of the system must be carried out in a manner approved by the local Water Undertaking. Where allowed, the system
may be filled via a temporary connection as shown in Fig. 7. After filling, always disconnect the flexible hose of the filling loop.
All fittings used in the system must be able to withstand pressures up to 3 bar.

FLUSHING THE HEATING SYSTEM
It is essential that the central heating system is thoroughly cleaned and flushed when fitting an Alpha InTec boiler. Failure to
do so will invalidate the warranty.
The primary condensing heat exchanger is constructed in stainless steel and therefore is compatible with most materials
used in a heating system.
If a cleaning agent and inhibitor are used, they must be applied in accordance with their manufacturers instructions. Only
products from Fernox and Sentinel are acceptable for use with the Alpha InTec boilers. Further information can be obtained
from Fernox (Tel: 0870 8700362) or Sentinel (Tel: 0151 4209563).
If applicable - Although the Cyclone is fitted in the heating return within the Premier Pack wall jig, the heating system should
still be thoroughly flushed as detailed below. The Cyclone collection point should be emptied via the drain point (see Fig. 14b)
after flushing has been completed.
The system should be flushed in accordance with BS 7593 and BS EN 14336. The following procedures are recommended:
1. Installing onto a new system:
a. Fill the system, vent at high points, at pump, primary heat exchanger and radiators.
b. Check for leaks.
c. Drain the system.
d. If required, chemically clean the system as instructed by the recommended cleaner manufacturer.
Note: Ensure that the system is flushed to remove any remains of the cleaner.
e. If chemical cleaner is not used to clean the system:
i)
Refill the system.
ii)
Switch on the boiler and allow the system to heat up to the normal operating temperature.
iii)
Switch off the boiler and drain the system while the water is still hot.
iv)
Refill the system and check for leaks.
f. As required, add the recommended inhibitor to the system as instructed by the inhibitor manufacturer.
2. Installing onto an existing system, clean the system before fitting the new boiler:
a. If the old boiler is still working:
i)
Switch on the boiler and allow the system to heat up to the normal operating temperature.
ii)
Switch off the boiler and drain the system while the water is still hot.
iii)
Refill and chemically clean the system as instructed by the recommended cleaner manufacturer.
iv)
Ensure the system is flushed to remove any remains of the cleaner.
v)
Fit the new boiler.
b. If the old boiler is not working:
i)
Drain the system.
ii)
Remove the old boiler.
iii)
Flush the system through.
iv)
Fit the new boiler.
v)
Refill and chemically clean the system as instructed by the recommended cleaner manufacturer.
vi)
Ensure the system is flushed to remove any remains of the cleaner and check for leaks.
c. As required, add the recommended inhibitor to the system as instructed by the inhibitor manufacturer.
3.10 DISPOSAL OF CONDENSATE
Provision must be made for the safe disposal of condensate produced by the flue gases of the Alpha InTec boilers and
reference should be made to BS 6798 for the requirements on the disposal of condensate.
The boilers incorporate a condensate trap which has a seal of 75 mm, therefore no additional trap is required.
The condensate should ideally be discharged internally into an internal waste pipe (washing machine/sink waste) or soil pipe
to avoid the possible risk of freezing. The pipework must be in 22 mm pipe.
External pipe runs should be avoided, but if it is necessary, the pipework should be protected from the risk of freezing with
waterproof insulation and the length should be kept to a maximum of 3 m. Alternatively the condensate pipework could be
increased to a minimum of 32 mm diameter without the requirement to insulate the pipework. Termination should be into an
external gulley or soakaway as shown in Figs. 9 and 10.
Note: All pipework must have a continuous fall (see Figs. 8 and 9) from the boiler and must be of an acid resistant material
such as plastic waste pipe. (copper or steel is not suitable).
It should be noted that the connection of a condensate pipe to a drain may be subject to local building control requirements.
Optional Condensate Trace Heating Kit
An optional Alpha InTec trace heating kit is also available to prevent the condensate from freezing.
The control of this kit works with a unique patented design using the boiler PCB to control the trace heating. The outside
weather probe measures the external temperature, activating the trace heating cable only when the boiler is in operation
and producing condensate. This feature together with the latest technology variable resistance heating cable ensures only a
small amount of electrical energy is used.
Alpha InTec S - General Boiler Information
13
If the external temperature drops below 2°C and the boiler is on, the relay PCB is operated and voltage is supplied to the
trace heating wire causing it to heat up and prevent the condensate from freezing. When the outside temperature rises to
4°C or the boiler pump stops, the trace heater is switched off. The connection of the outside weather probe supplied with this
kit also enables the weather compensation feature on the boiler.

4.9. FIT PLUME MANAGEMENT COMPONENTS - (OPTIONAL)
The following procedures detail the options for management of the exhaust flue gas/plume emitted from the terminal.
a.
The terminal supplied with the Easy-Flue can be altered to divert exhaust flue gas/plume at an angle.
This can be achieved by simply turning the end section of the terminal to the desired angle.
b.
The CD Easy-Flue can be converted to allow the inner flue duct to be extended so as to position the terminal in an area
where the exhaust flue gas/plume will not cause a nuisance. This can be done before or after installation of the flue,
providing there is access to the terminal from outside.
i. Remove the screws (1 in Fig. 21) securing the terminal and remove the terminal by pulling it from the flue assembly.
Remove the screw (2 in Fig. 21) securing the terminal end section and remove the end section from the terminal.
ii. Locate a 93° Plume Management bend into the flue assembly and rotate it to the direction required.
iii. Connect to the 93° bend the required Plume Management components as detailed and refer to Fig. 21.
Notes:
1. The wall support brackets must be used to secure the Plume Management pipework to the wall and
prevent disconnection of the 93° bend from the flue assembly or any other component.
2. Each joint must be secured with one of the screws provided to prevent accidental disconnection.
3. Ensure there is always a slight slope towards the flue assembly fitted in the wall and there is no part
of the plume management pipework where condensate/rain will collect and cause a blockage or any
restriction.
iv. Terminate the Plume Management pipework by fitting the terminal end section (push-fit) previously removed. Refer
to Fig. 22.
v. The Plume Management components available for extending the inner flue duct are as follows:
Plume Management 93° bend 60 mm dia. (each 93° bend equivalent to 1.3 m flue length)
Plume Management 45° bend 60 mm dia. (each 45° bend equivalent to 0.9 m flue length)

4.12 OPTIONAL ALPHA SYSTEM DIVERTER KIT
The Alpha Diverter valve kit operates as a hot water priority valve meaning if the heating is on and there is a hot water
demand the valve will divert the primary hot water to the cylinder until the cylinder sensor is satisfied. The heating will be
held off during this period so it is recommended that a high recovery cylinder is used. The kit comprises of a diverter valve
and cylinder sensor.
Installing the kit is simplified due to the direct wiring of the diverter valve and cylinder sensor to the boiler connector block
and the option of an RF or direct wired Climatic Programmable Boiler Energy Manager should be used to control hot water
and heating (see Section 8 - Wiring Diagrams).
When using this kit the hot water cylinder temperature and heating temperature can then be independantly set using the two
thermostat knobs on the boiler control panel or the control dials on the Alpha Climatic control unit if fitted.

5 COMMISSIONING
When commissioning the boiler, ensure the Benchmark Checklist is completed.
5.1
FILL THE SYSTEM
1.
The boiler is fitted with an automatic air vent positioned on the pump (see Fig. 2), ensure that the vent is always open.
2.
Open the central heating flow and return valves (vertical slot in-line with valve) (see Fig. 13).
3.
Open the fill point valve on the filling loop until water is heard to flow.
4.
To remove the air - Vent each radiator in turn, starting with the lowest in the system.
5.
Vent air from the primary heat exchanger via the manual vent at the top left hand side (see Fig. 29).
6.
It is important that the pump is properly vented to avoid it running dry and damaging its bearings. Unscrew and remove the
cap from the centre of the pump. Using a suitable screwdriver rotate the exposed spindle about half a turn, then replace
the cap.
7.
Check the operation of the pressure relief valve (see Fig. 2) by turning the head anti-clockwise until it clicks. The click is
the valve lifting off its seat allowing water to escape from the system - check that this is actually happening.
8.
Continue to fill the system until the pressure gauge indicates 1.0 bar. Close the fill point valve and check the system for
water soundness, rectifying where necessary. Disconnect the filling loop from the mains supply.
Water may be released from the system by manually operating the drain point (see Fig. 2) until the system design
pressure is obtained. The system design pressure (cold) should be between 0.75 and 1.25 bar.
Refer to Sections 3.8 and 3.9. Filling and Flushing the system.
9.
Ensure that the condensate trap has been filled with water. Refer to Section 4.5, paragraph 4.

Alpha InTec S - Commissioning
5.4
INITIAL LIGHTING - Refer to Fig. 26
1.
Before turning on the gas and electrical supplies check the heating system is filled to the correct pressure. Refer to
Section 5.1 Fill the System. The pressure gauge on the right of the control panel indicates the heating system pressure.
When the boiler is cold the needle should be within the green band.
2.
With the gas and electrical supplies to the boiler off, ensure that the central heating flow and return valves are open.
3.
Turn on the gas and electrical supplies to the boiler.
When the electricity supply is turned on, the boiler will automatically go through a system purging cycle for 8 minutes
counting down from 96 on the display. This can be interrupted by pressing the RESET button (item 3 in Fig. 26). It is
recommended that this cycle is allowed to complete when first lighting the boiler to help remove air from the system.
After this the boiler will be in either Standby or On mode, the On-Off/Standby button (item 1 in Fig. 26) is used to scroll
between these modes or press and hold it in to turn the boiler off.
Note: This does not isolate the electricity supply to the boiler.
4.
Ensure all external controls are calling for heat.
If the optional controls are fitted, refer to the instructions supplied, and ensure they are in an 'on' mode.
5.
Press the Summer/Winter button (item 2 in Fig. 26) to select either summer (
Note: The Summer mode will only function if the Alpha System Diverter valve kit has been fitted.
When using a standard Y or S plan system the boiler MUST be left in the Winter mode.
): In this mode the boiler will only fire when hot water is requested to heat the hot water cylinder. The
Summer (
heating will not function even if requested by any controls. The desired hot water temperature can be set using the hot
water selector switch (item 5 in Fig. 26) on the control panel, when the boiler operates the display will indicate the actual
primary flow temperature (item 14 in Fig. 26).
): In this mode the boiler will provide heating and heat the DHW cylinder depending on the request from any
Winter (
controls fitted. The boiler will always prioritise hot water to the domestic hot water cylinder when it requires heating. The
heating will activate depending on the request from any external controls fitted.
The domestic hot water (item 5 in Fig. 26) and central heating (item 6 in Fig. 26) selector switches on the control panel
can then be turned to the required set temperatures shown on the display, (item 5 in Fig. 26 is only operational if the
Alpha Diverter valve kit has been fitted). The display will then display the actual primary flow temperature (item 14 in
Fig. 26) when operating in heating or to heat the DHW cylinder.
) or winter (
) mode.
Note: If a weather compensation probe is fitted (can only be fitted when the Alpha Diverter valve kit is fitted) a gradient
value of 1 to 9 is displayed when adjusting the central heating temperature selector switch. This is because the boiler
output is modulated according to outside temperature. Refer to external probe instructions for further information on this
feature.
6.
From this moment the boiler functions automatically. With no demand for heat (central heating or domestic hot water
production) the boiler goes to “standby” function.
Each time the burner ignites, the flame present symbol (item 10 in Fig. 26) is displayed together with the relative
strength of the flame.
For any controls fitted please refer to the instructions supplied with the controls for connection and operation details.
5.5
BOILER OPERATION
If there is a call for heat, the pump will start to circulate the central heating water. The fan will run and the pre-mix burner will
light. The burner output then automatically adjusts to suit the system demand; as the temperature of the water in the boiler
approaches that set by the adjustable temperature thermostat, the burner output is reduced. When the set temperature is
reached, the burner is turned off. The fan continues to run for 30 seconds and the pump continues to run for three minutes,
after which the burner can relight if required. If the primary sensor has not registered the pre-set temperature but the room
thermostat is satisfied the burner is turned off. The fan continues to run for 30 seconds and the pump continues to run for 10
seconds. In this instance there is no delay before the burner will relight.
If there is a request to heat the DHW cylinder during the burner delay, the boiler will operate to heat the cylinder until the
demand is satisfied; the boiler will then immediately revert to provide CH if there is a demand.
Note: If the system pressure is very low, the primary pressure switch will prevent the boiler from operating.
Frost Thermostat
The boiler incorporates a built in frost thermostat which automatically turns on the boiler and pump if the water in the boiler
falls below 4°C, providing the electrical supply is on and the boiler is in standby mode. The boiler will operate until the water
temperature in the boiler reaches 42°C.
Any other pipework outside of the boiler must be protected from the risk of freezing and insulated. Additional protection from
an external frost thermostat and pipe thermostats should be considered.
Pump Cycle
If the electrical supply is on and the boiler has not operated for 24 hours in heating or hot water, the pump will operate
automatically for thirty seconds every 24 hours.

6 ROUTINE SERVICING
To ensure efficient operation of the boiler it is recommended that it is checked and serviced as necessary at regular intervals.
The frequency of servicing will depend upon the particular installation conditions and usage, but in general once per year
should be adequate.
It is the law that any service work must be carried out by a competent person, i.e. Gas Safe registered personnel.
Warning: Before servicing the boiler, isolate the electrical supply and close the boiler gas service cock. Allow the boiler to cool.
The data label is positioned on the inside of the left hand side panel.
Always test for gas tightness after servicing any gas carrying components.
Always carry out electrical system checks i.e. Earth Continuity, Resistance to Earth, Short Circuit and Polarity with a suitable
meter after servicing.
General
Please Note: During routine servicing, and after any maintenance or change of part of the combustion circuit, the following
must be checked:
1. The integrity of the flue system and the flue seals, as described in Section 4.6 and 4.7.
2. The integrity of the boiler combustion circuit and relevant seals.
3. The operational (working) gas inlet pressure at maximum rate, as described in Section 5.6.
4. The combustion performance, as described below.
Competence to carry out the check of combustion performance
Please Note: BS 6798:2009 Specification for installation and maintenance of gas-fired boilers of rated input not exceeding
70 kW net advises that:
1. The person carrying out a combustion measurement should have been assessed as competent in the use of a
flue analyser and the interpretation of the results.
2. The flue gas analyser used should be one meeting the requirements of BS 7927 or BS-EN 50379-3 and be
calibrated in accordance with the analyser manufacturers' requirements.
3. Competence can be demonstrated by satisfactory completion of the CPA1ACS assessment, which covers the use
of electronic portable combustion gas analysers in accordance with BS 7967, Parts 1 to 4.
Combustion check
Connect the flue gas analyser to the flue gas sampling point as shown in Fig. 28.
Notes: 1. Prior to servicing, it is recommended that a flue gas analyser is used to measure the performance of the boiler
(refer to Fig. 28 for the position of the flue sampling point). If the CO/CO2 ratio measured is greater than 0.003
or when other checks and comments from the customer have indicated that there may be problems, cleaning of
the heat exchanger will be necessary. All Sections 6.1, 6.2, 6.3 and 6.4 must be carried out. Repeat the flue gas
analyser test after reassembling the boiler and check that the CO/CO2 ratio is less than 0.003.
If the CO/CO2 ratio reading is still above, then you must repeat Sections 6.1, 6.2, 6.3 and 6.4 until you obtain a
ratio reading of below 0.003.
If the combustion reading is greater than the acceptable value AND the integrity of the complete flue
system and combustion circuit seals have been verified and the inlet gas pressure (and gas rate) have
been verified. Please call our Technical Helpline.
2. If the CO/CO2 ratio measured is less than 0.003 and other checks and comments from the customer suggest
there are no problems then only Section 6.1 and Section 6.2 paragraphs 1, 2 and 3 need to be carried out to
allow a visual check of the components within the room sealed chamber.
3. If a flue gas analyser is not available, then all Sections 6.1, 6.2, 6.3 and 6.4 must be carried out.
6.1
IMPORTANT NOTES PRIOR TO SERVICING
