Indirect Fired Water Heaters Installation and Operating Manual

Installation & Operating Manual

2 Pre-installation

1. The installation must conform to the instructions in this manual and all applicable local, state, provincial, and national codes, laws, regulations, and ordinances.

Installations in Canada must conform to B149.2

Installation Code.

2. Be certain the domestic water supply to the tank has physical and chemical characteristics that fall within the limits shown in Table 2A. Where questions exist as to the composition of the water on the job, a qualifi ed water treatment expert should be consulted.

CAUTION

Water with characteristics outside the limits shown in

Table 2A may severely shorten the life of the tank due to corrosion. Damage to tanks in such cases is not covered under warranty.

Locating the Tank

1. Choose a location for your water heater centralized to the piping system. You must also locate the SST water heater where it will not be exposed to freezing temperatures. Additionally, you will need to place the water heater so that the controls, drain, and inlet/ outlets are easily accessible. This appliance must not be installed outdoors, as it is certifi ed as an indoor appliance, and must also be kept vertical on a level surface.

2. Keep distance between boiler and water heater to a minimum to: a. reduce piping heat loss b. provide minimal friction loss

3. Figure 1-1 on page 6 shows the weights of all the tanks fi lled with water. Make sure that the location chosen for the tank is capable of supporting it.

3. Read and understand all installation requirements in this manual.

Water Chemistry Requirements

Table 2A

Water used in the tank must have characteristics falling within the following limits:

CAUTION

This appliance must be placed where leakage from the temperature and pressure (T&P) relief valve, leakage from the related piping, or leakage from the tank or connections, will not result in damage to the surrounding areas, or to the lower floors of the building. A water heater should always be located in an area with a floor drain or installed in a drain pan suitable for water heaters. The manufacturer shall not be held liable for any such water damage. Damage caused by the failure to properly install a drain pan or in an area with a drain is not the responsibility of the manufacturer or Bosch Thermotechnology Corp.

(BTC).

4. The tank may be located some distance from the boiler provided the pump is designed to provide the fl ow called for in Table 3B - Pressure Drop Values, through the coil. Also, the further the tank is from the boiler, the longer the response of the boiler will be to a call from the tank zone. Insulate piping between the boiler and the tank.

WARNING

Failure to properly support the tank could result in property damage or personal injury.

Indirect Fired Water Heaters Installation and Operating Manual

Recommended Clearances

The installation location must provide adequate clearances for servicing and proper operation of the water heater. A

12 inch vertical clearance is recommended from the top of the water heater. A zero clearance is allowed for the sides of the water heater. However, boiler and servicing clearances must be fi gured when locating the water heater.

3 Boiler Side Piping

.

Figures 3-1 thru 3-4 show typical boiler side piping for several common situations. Regardless of which system is used it is imperative that the fl ow rates called for in Table

3B are developed through the coil. This requires properly sized piping and a properly sized pump. The system shown in FIG’s 3-1 thru 3-4 are described below:

DHW Prioritization

This piping system is designed to provide direct hot water priority over the other zones in the heating system. When there is a Domestic Hot Water (DHW) call for heat, the controller will shut off the boiler circulator and activate the domestic hot water circulator. Once the DHW demand is satisfi ed, the boiler circulator will be readjusted as demand requires. The circulator must be large enough to move the boiler water through the coils. The recommended piping for a DHW priority system is depicted in FIG. 3-1 and 3-2 using a GB142 wall hung boiler.

Zone with Circulator to Aquastat

This system is like the circulator zone system on a straight heat job except that one of the zones goes to the tank instead of radiation. As on any circulator zone system check valves should be installed in each zone to prevent unwanted circulation through zones which are not calling for heat. Figure 3-3 illustrates typical circulator zone piping with a fl oor standing G115WS, G125BE, GB125BE, or

G215 boiler.

Multiple Tank Connections (Boiler Side)

Multiple tank installations must be done in the “reversereturn” manner. The reason for this is to create the same pressure drop (and therefore, the same fl ow) through the coil of each tank. The boiler manifold piping must be sized so that each coil has the fl ow rate called for in Table 3B.

Because the pressure drop through tank coils varies from size to size, it is hard to predict the fl ow rate that will be developed through each coil when two tanks of different sizes are placed in the same manifold. For this reason it is best not to mix tanks of different sizes in the same zone if their recovery is critical. A sample system is shown in FIG.

3-4.

4 Domestic Side (Tank) Piping

Basic Domestic Piping

Figure 4-2 shows typical domestic water piping for a tank.

The function of the components shown are as follows: a. Shut-off valves (recommended) - Used to isolate the tank for servicing.

b. Backfl ow Preventer (required by some codes) -

Used to prevent water from backing out of the tank in the event that inlet water pressure drops.

c. Expansion Tank (required when a backfl ow preventer is used) - This expansion tank absorbs the increased volume caused by heating water.

Use an expansion tank designed for use on domestic water systems. Refer to the expansion tank manufacturer’s literature for the proper size expansion tank to use.

NOTICE

If an expansion tank is used, do not put any valves between the expansion tank and tank inlet. d. Unions (optional) - Used to disconnect the tank in the unlikely event that this is necessary.

e. Drain (required) - Used to drain the tank for inspection or servicing.

Domestic Water Piping for Distant Fixtures

In some cases the furthest fi xture may be quite distant from the tank. Such an installation would result in an unacceptable delay before hot water reaches these distant fi xtures. Even if all the fi xtures are relatively close to the tank, the building owner may want hot water at all fi xtures as soon as they are opened.

A solution to this problem is that a pipe runs from the furthest fi xture on each branch back to the return of the tank (reference FIG. 4-2). A small DHW recirculation pump is mounted in this line and is wired so as to run continuously. A check valve in this line permits fl ow towards the tank inlet only.

When no fi xtures are drawing water, the DHW recirculation pump moves hot water from the tank to the end of the branch just below the last fi xture, then back to the inlet of the tank via the return pipe. When a fi xture is opened, hot water is already out in the branch very close to the fi xture and hot water appears at it almost immediately. The check valve prevents cold water in the tank’s inlet pipe from passing around the tank and heading directly to the fi xture.

Because hot water is always circulating in the hot water branch the entire branch should be insulated to prevent excessive heat loss.

Multiple Tank Domestic Water Piping

The two pipe reverse return piping uses more pipe than the two pipe direct return piping, but the fl ow is more balanced and even in the two pipe reverse return piping layout (see FIG. 3-4).

Each tank must have its own T&P valve. It is recommended that each tank be equipped with its own isolation valves, unions, and drains so that one tank may be removed from the system. If local codes require a backfl ow preventer, check with the appropriate authority to fi nd out whether one backfl ow preventer may be used for tanks or each tank must be equipped with its own backfl ow preventer. If each tank must have its own backfl ow preventer, each tank must also have its own expansion tank. If a common backfl ow preventer is permitted, an expansion tank must be sized to accommodate the expansion volume of all tanks.

Indirect Fired Water Heaters Installation and Operating Manual | 13

Installation & Operating Manual

Anti-scald Valves (Mixing Valves)

Anti-scald valves used with water heaters are also called tempering valves or mixing valves. An anti-scald valve mixes cold water in with the outgoing hot water to assure that hot water reaching a building fi xture is at a temperature low enough to be safe.

Usually, the maximum temperature of the outlet water will stay near the setting of the tank control. In some cases, however, hot water usage patterns can cause the outlet water temperature to rise signifi cantly above the control setting.

The temperature of water going to the fi xtures may be more carefully controlled through the use of a thermostatic mixing valve. This device blends a controlled amount of cold water with the hot water leaving the tank so that water at a more constant temperature exits the mixing valve. Anti-scald mixing valve piping is illustrated in

FIG.’s 3-1 thru 3-4.

WARNING

An anti-scald mixing valve does not eliminate the risk of scalding.

* Set the tank thermostat as low as practical.

* Feel water before bathing or showering.

* If anti-scald or anti-chill protection is required, use devices specifically designed for such service. Install these devices in accordance with their manufacturer’s instructions.

Temperature & Pressure (T&P) Relief Valve

WARNING

For protection against excessive temperatures and pressure, install temperature and pressure protective equipment required by local codes, but not less than a combination temperature and pressure (T&P) relief valve certified by a nationally recognized testing laboratory that maintains periodic inspection of production of listed equipment or materials as meeting the requirements for Relief

Valves and Automatic Gas Shutoff Devices for Hot

Water Supply Systems, ANSI Z21.22 and the

Standard CAN1-4.4, Temperature, Pressure,

Temperature and Pressure Relief Valves and Vacuum

Relief Valves. The combination temperature and pressure relief valve shall be marked with a maximum set pressure not to exceed the maximum working pressure of the water heater. The combination temperature and pressure relief valve shall also have an hourly rated temperature steam

BTU discharge capacity not less than shown in

Table 4A.

Install the combination temperature and pressure relief valve into the opening provided and marked for this purpose on the water heater. Failure to properly install the correct temperature and pressure (T&P) relief valve can result in a discharge of hot water that can cause severe personal injury or substantial property damage.

Install Drain Valve

Drain valve and fi ttings are supplied by others.

Standard Installation

• Install a tee connection at the domestic cold water inlet

(FIG. 4-1).

NOTICE

Verify that the combination temperature and pressure

(T&P) relief valve complies with local codes. If the combination temperature and pressure relief valve does not comply with local codes, replace it with one that does. Follow the installation instructions in this section.

Figure 4-1 Drain valve installed

DRAIN

VALVE

1 4 | Indirect Fired Water Heaters Installation and Operating Manual

Installation & Operating Manual

Do not place a valve between the combination temperature and pressure relief valve and the tank.

Standard Installation

• Install the T&P relief valve in the connection marked

“Relief Valve”.

Determine T&P relief valve size by the following specifi cations, unless they confl ict with local codes:

- SST150-40 - 3/4” NPT with a minimum AGA Rating of

105,000 Btu/hr.

- SST250-65/300-80/450-119 - 3/4” NPT with a minimum AGA Rating of 200,000 Btu/hr.

NOTICE

The SST series water heaters will absorb/store less than 200,000 Btu/hr when domestic water outlet temperature is 210°F and boiler water supply temperature is 240°F. Listed outputs are based on

ASME Section VIII Interpretation VIII-1-86-136. Check with local codes for applicability.

T&P Relief Valve Discharge Piping

T&P relief valve discharge piping must be:

- made of material serviceable for a temperature of

250°F or greater.

- directed so that hot water fl ows away from all persons.

- directed to a suitable place for disposal.

- installed so as to allow complete draining of the T&P relief valve and discharge line.

- terminated within 6” of the fl oor.

T&P relief valve discharge piping must not be:

- excessively long. Using more than two (2) elbows or 15 feet of piping can reduce discharge capacity.

- directly connected to a drain. Refer to local codes.

- subject to freezing.

Minimum Relief Valve (AGA Rating) Table 4A

WARNING

Do not install any valve between the temperature and pressure (T&P) relief valve and the tank connection or on the T&P relief valve discharge piping. Improper placement and piping of T&P relief valve may result in a discharge of hot water that can cause severe personal injury, death or substantial property damage.

CAUTION

The temperature and pressure (T&P) relief valve is not intended for constant duty, such as relief of pressure due to repeated normal system expansion.

Correct this condition by installing a properly sized expansion tank in a domestic water system. Refer to the expansion tank manufacturer’s installation instructions for proper sizing. Be advised, the hot discharge water from the temperature and pressure

(T&P) relief valve, can cause severe personal injury, or substantial property damage.

WARNING

Failure to install and maintain a new, listed ¾" X ¾" temperature and pressure (T&P) relief valve will release the manufacturer from any claim which might result from excessive temperature and pressures or discharge of hot water.

6 Start-up and Check-out

1. Make sure the system is free of leaks and that air is purged from the system.

CAUTION

Fix any leaks found before proceeding further.

Leakage from the boiler piping can result in severe damage to the boiler.

2. Many soldering fl uxes contain Zinc Chloride which can cause severe corrosion damage to stainless steel. After completing all domestic water connections, fl ush the indirect water heater thoroughly before leaving the installation. This is particularly important if the indirect water heater will be unused for an extended period of time after installation. Flush the indirect water heater by drawing at least three times its volume from the tank.

3. Make sure that all electrical connections are made correctly and that no exposed high voltage wiring is present.

4. Make sure that each zone valve or circulator operates when, and only when, its thermostat calls for heat. Let each zone operate long enough to purge any remaining air from the system.

5. Set the indirect water heater to the desired temperature. Because hot water presents a scald hazard, it is best to set the thermostat at 120°F or lower and raise it only if necessary to provide adequate hot water.

6. Re-enable the burner and allow the boiler to operate.

Make sure that the boiler shuts down when the indirect water heater is satisfi ed.

7 Maintenance

The SST series indirect water heater is an extremely simple device and as such requires very little maintenance.

There are, however, several items which should be checked out on an annual or as needed basis to ensure a reliable supply of hot water:

• Make sure that the rest of the boiler and domestic water piping is free of leaks.

• The indirect water heater depends upon the boiler for a source of heat and is therefore only as reliable as the boiler.

• Make sure that the boiler is maintained in accordance with the boiler manufacturer’s instructions.

• If a water treatment system is required to keep the water chemistry within the parameters shown in Table 2A (see

Section 2 - Pre-Installation), make sure that this system is properly maintained.

Maintenance Schedule

Annual service by a qualifi ed service technician should include the following:

5. Review homeowner’s maintenance responsibilities and their frequencies, including any not listed in the following section.

Homeowner monthly maintenance to include:

1. Visually check valves, pipes, and fi ttings for leaks. Call a qualifi ed service technician to repair leaks.

To Fill the Water Heater

1. Close the water heater drain valve by turning the knob clockwise.

2. Open the cold water supply shutoff valve. Open several hot water faucets to allow air to escape from the system.

3. When a steady stream of water fl ows from the faucets, the water heater is fi lled. Close the faucets and check for water leaks at the water heater drain valve, combination temperature and pressure relief valve and the hot and cold water connections.

1. Any procedure required by local codes.

2. Verify system pressure. Air venting procedure may require adding water to bring boiler system up to pressure, typically 12 psig.

3. Manually operate T&P relief valve at least once a year.

This will release some hot water.

4.

WARNING

Water from opened drain valves, unions and other connections may be extremely hot. To avoid severe personal injury, death, or substantial property damage:

- Tighten all drain hose connections.

- Direct hot water away from all persons.

WARNING

Before operating a temperature and pressure (T&P) relief valve, make sure no one is in front of or around the T&P relief valve discharge piping. Hot discharge water can cause severe personal injury or substantial property damage.

4. Move operating lever to open position for a few seconds and then move it back, allowing it to snap closed. After the T&P relief valve is operated, if it continues to release water, close the cold water inlet to the water heater immediately. Follow the draining instructions, and replace the T&P relief valve. If the

T&P relief valve weeps periodically, it may be due to thermal expansion. Do not plug the T&P relief valve or discharge piping.

To Drain the Water Heater

Should it become necessary to completely drain the water heater, be sure to follow the steps below:

1. Disconnect the power supply to the heat source.

Consult the plumbing professional or electric company in your area for service.

2. Close the cold water supply shutoff valve.

3. Open the drain valve on the water heater.

4. Open a hot water faucet to allow air to enter the system.

Drain the water heater if it will be shut off and exposed to freezing temperatures. Freezing water will expand and damage the water heater.

DANGER

Plugging the temperature and pressure (T&P) relief valve or discharge piping can cause excessive pressure in the water heater, resulting in severe personal injury, death, or substantial property damage.

• If boiler water contains suffi cient antifreeze, then only the domestic water needs to be drained.

• If boiler water does not contain suffi cient antifreeze, the boiler water and the domestic water must be drained.

If antifreeze is used in the boiler water, check concentration. Boiler water (including additives) must be practically non-toxic, having a toxicity rating or class of 1,

Indirect Fired Water Heaters Installation and Operating Manual | 19

Installation & Operating Manual as listed in the “Clinical Toxicology of Commercial

Products”. A maximum 50/50 mixture of inhibited propylene glycol is recommended. Follow the antifreeze manufacturer’s instructions.

WARNING

Do not use automotive, ethylene glycol or petroleum-based antifreeze. These types of antifreezes are toxic and could cause severe personal injury or death if leakage into the domestic hot water supply occurs. Do not use any undiluted antifreeze. This can cause severe personal injury, death, or substantial property damage.

How to Properly Size Your Indirect Water Heater

Use the First Hour Rating (FHR) to properly size your

Indirect Water Heater. The First Hour Rating is the amount of hot water in gallons the heater can supply per hour

(starting with a tank full of hot water), depending on tank capacity, source of heat, and the size of the burner.

Estimate your peak hour demand as follows:

• Determine what time of day (morning, noon, evening) you use the most hot water in your home. Keep in mind the number of people living in your home.

• Use the worksheet below to estimate your maximum usage of hot water during this one hour of the day -- this is your peak hour demand. Note: The worksheet does not estimate total daily hot water usage.

The worksheet example shows a total peak hour demand of 165 gallons; therefore, this household would need a water heater with a First Hour Rating of no less than 165 gallons.

Fixture Count Guide

To quickly estimate the minimum gallons of hot water required based on a family size number of baths and hot water appliances the First Hour Rating of the STS tank must be equal to or exceed the total fi rst hour requirements.

Peak Hour Demand Worksheet
