2.0 INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS (Continued)
Water Supply Connection - Do-All Models Only
The incoming cold water supply connection, at the rear of the cabinet, requires 3/8" tubing and
water pressure of 25 to 50 psi. A manual shut-off valve must be provided convenient to the
appliance; this valve should be open when the appliance is in operation.
Drain Connection
The appliance drain (2" IPS) should be piped to a floor drain near the appliance. There should
be no solid drain connection; an “open gap” between the appliance and the floor drain is
required.
INFORMATION TO STEAM FITTER
Each cooking compartment requires approximately 1 BHP (34.5 lbs. of steam per hour to
operate satisfactorily. Therefore a two compartment requires 2 BHP and a three compartment
requires 3 BHP.
Assuming availability of a 30 psi supply steam pressure immediately to the appliance, then pipe
sizes of ½", 3/4" or 1" will deliver respectively 90, 165 or 385 lbs. of steam per hour to the
appliance Heat Exchanger. From the foregoing, a ½" pipe line is not recommended.
An important consideration is the pressure drop that will occur through the steam supply line
from its point of origin to the appliance. The greater the length of piping and number of valves
and elbows, the greater will be the pressure losses.
Consider a pressure drop of 1 (one) psi for each straight length of pipe equivalent to 120
diameters of that pipe. Thus, a 1" pipe having a straight length of 120" (10 feet) is equivalent to
120 diameters of that pipe and will have a pressure loss of 1 psi through that pipe.
Example:

DCL-2, DCL-3, DCL-4, DCP-2, DCP-3, DCP-4, DCW-2, DCW-3, DDA-2, DDA-3
INFORMATION TO STEAM FITTER (Continued)
Note, in 3/4" pipe size, that a Standard 90º Elbow and Angle Valve and a Globe Valve are
equivalent to 1.8 feet, 10 feet and 18 feet respectively of straight pipe.
Similarly, in a 1" pipe size, a standard 90º Elbow and Angle Valve and a Globe Valve are
equivalent to 2.2 feet, 12 feet and 23 feet respectively of straight pipe.
Example:
Total of above = 20 + 2.2 + 3 + 2.2 + 17 + 23 + 10 + 2.2 = 79.6 feet. Since each 10 feet is
equivalent to 1 psi pressure loss, 79.6 feet is equivalent to approximately 32 psi from an original
boiler supply of 40 psi.
It is suggested that, wherever possible, the steam supply line to the appliance is a separate line
from the steam source. If the appliance must be supplied from a line supplying other
appliances, the pipe sizes and pressure will have to be verified. Further, during idle periods,
when the steam in the supply line is not in use, water will form from condensed steam in the
supply line. It is advisable to prevent water pockets from forming in the steam line and
impeding the steam flow when it is required. Therefore, the steam supply line should be
installed level or run slightly downwards towards the appliance. Install a Ball Float Trap near
the appliance to drain out water (condensed steam) from the line to assure clean dry steam to
the appliance.

3.0 OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS (Continued)
Set timer at 5 minutes. Pull out operating handle and set in position. Steam should be heard
entering the compartment; also you should hear a hissing sound as compartment air exits the
vent at the rear side, until replaced by steam.
Observe that door gasket seals properly and that no leaks are evident.
After five minutes: Timer should read “0", steam will stop entering compartment, the exhaust
valve will open allowing steam and condensate water to exit, and the buzzer will sound.
To silence the buzzer, push in the operating handle.
DO-ALL MODELS ONLY:
Observe that water is flowing at the open drain. Steam from the compartment is cooled by a
flow of cold water from the thermostatically controlled valve. Pause one minute to allow steam
and condensate to exit. Turn handwheel counterclockwise to avoid pressure on the door
gasket when not in use.
Move the door latch to the left to release and open the door. Check each compartment in this
manner.
WARNING: The steamer and its parts are hot. Use care when
operating, cleaning, or servicing the steamer.
CAUTION: Live steam and accumulated hot water in the
compartment may be released when the door is opened.

3.0 OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS (Continued)
STEAMING
Each steaming compartment is controlled by its own controls. When a compartment is not
operating, the drain is open and the steam inlet valve from the boiler is closed. Food, properly
portioned and in appropriate solid or perforated pans, is placed on rack supports (or wire
shelves) in the steaming compartment. After closing and sealing the door, setting the timer,
and pulling out the operating handle, the steam inlet valve from the boiler opens, allowing
steam at a pressure of 6 psi to enter the compartment. Air from the sealed compartment exits
through the vent until the temperature reaches 180°F; then the vent closes and the
compartment can become pressurized. [On DDA models only, if the top compartment has
been switched to pressureless steaming, steam enters the compartment and is exhausted to
the drain without pressurizing the compartment.] Steaming continues until the timer reaches “0”
and the buzzer sounds. To silence the buzzer, push in the operating handle. Wait one minute
for steam or hot water to drain away. Open the door and remove the cooked food.
The cabinet (lower portion of steamer) contains the pressure regulator. On DDA models there
is also the drain assembly, water cooling valve, power switch, pilot light and drain thermostat.
PREHEAT COMPARTMENTS
If the cooker has been standing idle and the compartments are cold, preheat before loading.
GENERAL
Turn on power and steam supply to appliance. DDA Models open left door of cabinet and turn
on Power Switch. Pilot light will come ON indicating power to the condensate valve and drain
thermostat.
SHUT DOWN
Turn off power switch and steam supply to appliance.

4.0 COOKING GUIDELINES
The cooking guidelines in this manual are suggestions only. You should experiment with your
food products to determine cooking times that will give you the best results. Variables which
affect cooking time include size, weight, thickness of foods, temperature, density, previous
condition of the foods (fresh, pre-blanched or frozen) and degree of doneness desired.
To allow steam to circulate around the pans, food must be spread evenly throughout the pans.
Best results are obtained after the compartments are allowed to preheat. When all
compartments are to be loaded at the same time, it is best to allow the first compartment to
reach 4 - 4.5 psig before starting the next compartment. When processing frozen vegetables,
use half the suggested pan weights and allow sufficient time for cooking doneness.
