WARNING
Clearance to combustibles
Location of flammable or explosive objects, liquids or vapors close to the heater may cause fire
or explosion and result in property damage, injury or death. Do not use, store or locate flammable or explosive objects, liquids or vapors in proximity of the heater.
The clearance to combustible material represents the minimum distance that must be maintained between the outer heater surface and
a nearby surface. The stated clearance to combustibles represents a
surface temperature of 90F° (50C°) above room temperature. It is the
installer’s responsibility to ensure that building materials with a low
heat tolerance which may degrade at lower temperatures are protected to prevent degradation. Examples of low heat tolerance materials include vinyl siding, fabrics, some plastics, filmy materials, etc.
In locations used for the storage of combustible materials, signs must be posted to specify the
maximum permissible stacking height to maintain the required clearances from the heater to
the combustibles. Such signs must either be posted adjacent to the heater thermostats or in
the absence of such thermostats in a conspicuous location. In addition to stored or stationary
material, consideration must also be given to moveable objects such as cranes, vehicles, and
overhead doors, and structural objects such as sprinkler heads, electrical and gas lines, and
electrical fixtures.
It is beyond the scope of these instructions to consider all conditions that may be encountered.
Consult local authorities such as the Fire Marshall, insurance carrier, or safety authorities if you
are uncertain as to the safety or applicability of the proposed installation.

6. MOUNTING CLEARANCES
This heater must be mounted with at least the minimum clearances between the heater and
combustibles as shown in FIG-1, TABLE 1, Page 7. It is the installer’s responsibility to ensure
that building materials with a low heat tolerance which may degrade at lower temperatures are
protected to prevent degradation. Examples of low heat tolerance materials include vinyl siding, fabrics, some plastics, filmy materials, etc.
Positioning of lights, sprinkler heads, overhead doors, storage areas, gas and electrical lines,
parked vehicles, cranes and any other possible obstruction or hazard must be evaluated prior
to installation.
Ensure adequate clearance around the air intake at the burner to allow sufficient combustion air supply to the heater.
6A. SERVICE CLEARANCE: The lower ‘jaw’ of the burner cabinet swings down to provide
convenient service access to burner components. Provide a minimum clearance from any wall
or obstruction of 6 inches (15 cm) to the access end of the burner housing, and a minimum of
24 inches (61 cm) to any ONE side to allow servicing of burner, blower and controls. (see Figure 2) - the minimum clearances to combustibles must always be maintained.

* RECOMMENDED MOUNTING HEIGHTS are typical to provide optimum comfort in general
space heating applications. Variance to these typical heights can occur in some applications:
 Higher mounting heights due to structure or application requirements
 Lower mounting heights for area or ‘spot’ heat, or in areas with greater infiltration losses
(near overhead doors, etc)
IMPORTANT: Single or multiple heater placement must be such that continuous operation of heater(s) will not cause combustible material or materials in
storage to reach a temperature in excess of ambient temperature plus 90F°
(50C°).
It is the installer’s responsibility to ensure that building materials with a
low heat tolerance which may degrade at lower temperatures are protected to prevent degradation. Examples of low heat tolerance materials
include vinyl siding, fabrics, some plastics, filmy materials, etc.
Refer to “Clearance to Combustibles” information on pages 6 to 8, and
Figure 1 and Table 1.

SYSTEMS INCORPORATING 90° ELBOWS AND 180° ELBOWS
The radiant tube heater can be installed in configurations as illustrated in FIGURE 4. (below)
with a maximum of two 90° elbows per heater. The use of elbows reduces the total maximum
vent allowable. (See Section 11 : Flue venting)
S100/ITB I&O Manual
IM101230
RD: SEP 2013
RL: 8B- BA
12
90° elbows (JS-0528-SM) are shipped as a kit with one coupler, and two reflector end caps.
The S100 / ITB is available in a “U-Tube” model - S100U / ITBU - using a 180° turn box. A
double wide reflector covers the double tube run. Alternately, for a 180° elbow, order 2 x 90°
kits that connect to create a 180°.
IMPORTANT: Models with input 100 Mbh x 20 ft (30 kW x 6 m) must only be installed as a
straight system with no elbows allowed at the 10 ft (3 m) location.
Elbow Location / Input: A minimum run of straight radiant tube must be connected to the burner before any elbow as follows: Inputs 200 (60 kW) and 175
Mbh (50 kW) = 25 ft (7.6 m); Input 155 Mbh (45 kW) = 20 ft (6 m); Inputs 130
Mbh (38 kW) and 110 Mbh (32 Kw) = 15 ft (4.6 m); and Inputs 80 Mbh (23 kW),
60 Mbh (18 kW), and 45 Mbh (13 kW) a minimum of 10 ft (3 m) straight tube before elbow.

8. SUSPENDING THE SYSTEM - GENERAL
Inadequate or improper suspension of the tube heater can result in collapse of
the system, property damage, and personal injury or death.
It is the installer’s responsibility to ensure that the hardware and structural supports from which the heater is suspended are sound and of adequate strength
to support the weight and expansion forces of the heater.
Consider that the heater will expand in length as much as 1/2 inch (12.5 mm) or more for every
10 ft (3 m) of system length – typically the greater the firing rate, the greater the expansion.
Refer to Sections 13 & 14
1) Survey the available structural supports, considering the system configuration and heat requirements of the area to establish the optimum heater location.
a) Locating a heater directly under joists or beams, or installing supplemental steel support
rail or angle iron can substantially reduce labor and materials
2) Hardware with a minimum 60 lb. (30 kg) work load must be used at each heater suspension
point. A #8 Jack Chain or equivalent is typically used for suspending the heater.
a) Connect to the structure using typical hardware as illustrated in FIGURE 6 (below) or by
other mechanically sound means
b) If rigid devices such as 3/8” threaded rods are used for suspension, swing joints or other
means must be provided to allow for system expansion - approximately ½ inch to 1 inch
for every 10 ft (1 cm to 2.5 cm for every 3 m) of system length.
3) Tube system hangers must be located:

NOTE: Ensure that you are installing a single reflector - reflectors can ‘stick
together’ in packaging - take care to separate them.
S100 / ITB - STRAIGHT TUBE: After burner and tubes have been installed, slide the reflectors one at a time into the wire hangers. As each successive reflector is installed on an inline installation, the ends of the reflectors will overlap to provide continuous coverage over the
entire tube system. The overlapping joints MUST BE FASTENED TOGETHER with a sheet
metal screw.
Note that for either horizontal or angle mounting of the reflector, the tube must be level along
its length. Improper mounting can result in overheating of controls and combustible materials.
Reflector extensions can be added to the heaters as an option. See Figure 19 and instructions
next page
S100-U / ITB-U - U’-TUBE: After burner and tubes have been installed, slide the doublewide reflectors one at a time onto the hangers. Fasten the FIRST hanger nearest the burner to

WARNING
12. FLUE VENTING
Inadequate venting of a heater may result in asphyxiation, carbon monoxide
poisoning, injury or death. This heater may use a vent connection or indirect
venting system to remove products of combustion from the space. Seal all vent
connections with high temperature sealant. Venting must be in accordance with
all local, state, provincial, and national codes (ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54 in USA;
B149.1 in Canada) and as indicated below in this manual.
THIS TUBE HEATER IS APPROVED FOR VENTING DIRECTLY TO THE OUTSIDE AND UNVENTED (INDIRECT VENTING)
APPLICATIONS. THE SYSTEM MUST NOT BE OPERATED WITHIN A NEGATIVE AIR CONDITION UNLESS COMBUSTION AIR IS DUCTED FROM OUTSIDE DIRECTLY TO THE BURNER.
IF NEGATIVE PRESSURE IS EXPERIENCED OR ANTICIPATED, THE SECOND PORT (BARB) ON THE BLOCKED FLUE
SWITCH MUST BE CONNECTED DIRECTLY TO OUTSIDE AIR USING 1/4” PLASTIC HOSE FROM BLOCKED FLUE
SWITCH TO OUTSIDE OF BUILDING (FIELD SUPPLIED).
UNVENTED (INDIRECT MECHANICAL VENTING SYSTEM)
Indirect venting must not be used if the building experiences a negative air condition. A minimum 12 inch (30 cm) length of single walled vent pipe is to be installed on the swaged end of
the last tube before any Tee, Elbow or Termination Cap is fitted.
USA: Natural or mechanical means shall be provided to supply and exhaust at least 4ft3/
min/1000Btuh (0.38m3/min/kW) input of installed heaters. Some local codes may require an
electrical interlock to a dedicated exhaust fan. Exhaust must be located as high as practicable
in the structure above the level of the heater(s). Consult your local code and ANSI Z223.1 latest edition for all venting requirements and practices.
Canada: It is required that the heater(s) be electrically interlocked to dedicated exhaust fan(s)
by means of an Air Proving Switch. Exhaust fan(s) must be sized to create 300 cfm (8.5 cu m/
min) exhaust for every 100,000 Btuh (30 kW) or any fraction thereof of total input of installed
equipment. Exhaust must be located as high as practicable in the structure above the level of
the heater(s). Sufficient supply air must be provided. Consult the latest edition of CSA.B149.1
Section 8 for venting system and air supply requirements.
VENTED TO THE OUTSIDE
It is the responsibility of the installer to adhere to these instructions and all current local codes
and/or ANSI Z223.1 / CSA.B149.1 latest editions for all venting requirements, and practices.
It is a normal condition that during heat-up and cool-down a tube heater will expand and contract. Allowances for heater expansion must be made in the venting and combustion air ducting.
Improper installation can result in property damage, injury or death.

All vent pipe and adapters are supplied locally by others

All venting must be minimum 26 gauge single wall vent pipe of 4” (10 cm) diameter except
that portion of vent passing through a combustible wall or roof can be 4” type “B” vent as per
CSA International’s interim requirement. Refer to Section 11A for vent length requirements.

As an Option, two heaters may be vented through an approved common 4" x 4" x 6" Vent
Tee (10 x 10 x 15 cm), supplied by the manufacturer. Vent pipe from each heater does not
need to be equidistant to the vent Tee, but must comply to requirements below. The two

heaters must be controlled by a single common thermostat or “ON/OFF” switch.
Install a minimum 36 inch (91 cm) length of minimum 26 gauge single walled 4” (10 cm) diameter vent pipe on the system, and a minimum 12 inch (30 cm) before any Tee or Elbow.
Seal all vent connections with high temperature sealant. Vent connections must be secured
with three (3) #8 sheet metal screws uniformly spaced around the circumference of the pipe.
Any horizontal vent pipe must slope approx. 1/4” per foot away from heater
When the vent pipe passes through a cold or unheated area where the ambient temperature
is likely to produce condensation of the flue gases, the vent pipe will be insulated with a suitable material as approved and specified by the insulation manufacturer to withstand temperature up to 460°F (238°C).
The vent system must always be adequately supported to prevent sagging.

13. COMBUSTION AIR DUCTING
Do not install filters on the combustion air intake. Ensure adequate clearance around
the air intake to allow sufficient combustion air supply to the heater.
This heater requires optional 4” Fresh Air Intake Adapter JS-0532-SE to connect an outside combustion air duct.
An opening is located on the top surface of the burner housing for combustion air . Ensure
adequate clearance around this opening to allow sufficient combustion air supply to the heater.
Combustion air duct must be constructed of noncombustible material.
When a tube heater is operated in a negative air condition or air-born dust or contaminants are
present as in woodworking and welding shops, air for combustion must be ducted from outside
the negative or contaminated area to the 4 inch (10 cm) diameter intake flange supplied on the
blower. Maximum system, vent and duct length is listed above.
 The total system length and individual flue vent or the combustion air duct is not to ex-
ceed the lengths listed above
 Total combined system length is reduced by five feet for every 90° elbow installed in the
vent or duct and in the tube system (see above for allowable total lengths)
 Exceeding the allowable lengths may create condensation or soot conditions and will void
CSA Design Certification and product warranty
The air intake will not be located less than:
 Three feet above grade
 Twelve inches from flue vent terminal of any heater with input up to 100,000 Btu/hr
 Three feet from flue vent terminal of any heater over 100,000 Btu/hr
This heater has an optional fresh air intake duct hood for wall (JS-0532-VC) or roof cap (JS0530-XX) to bring combustion air to the heater from outside. Ensure adequate clearance
around the air intake to allow sufficient combustion air supply to the heater. If drawing fresh air
from outside, it is recommended that any single wall pipe containing cold air be insulated to
prevent or reduce condensation on the pipe.
Do not use flexible dryer hose or any ‘soft wall’ tubing for air inlet duct, the corrugated sides
of this tubing restrict air flow. A good quality industry approved insulated flex is allowed.
CAUTION:
In locations where chlorinated Hydrocarbons are in use, such as Trichloroethylene or Chloroethylene Nu it is essential that combustion air be brought in from
a non-contaminated area. Burning the fumes from these gases will create Hydrochloric acid fumes, which are detrimental to humans, equipment and buildings. Typical sources of other contaminants are paint removers, paints, refrigerants, solvents, adhesives, degreasers, lubricants, pesticides, etc.
The heater manufacturer cannot anticipate all types and chemical composition of
possible contaminants at project sites. Confer with project site safety, health and
engineering staff and/or local authorities having jurisdiction such as the Fire Marshall and Department of Labor for possible contaminants and any conflict with the
installation of hot surface heating equipment.

13. GAS SUPPLY - HEATER EXPANSION - FLEXIBLE GAS CONNECTION
The gas supply must be installed to the heater using:

USA: an approved Stainless Steel Flexible Gas Connector certified for use on an infrared
radiant tube heater (ANSI Z21.24 CSA 6.10);

CANADA: an approved Type 1 Hose Gas Connector (CAN/CGA 8.1).

The heater must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing its individual
manual shut off valve (field supplied) during any pressure testing of the gas supply piping
system.
CAUTION:
Compensation for normal gas supply pipe expansion, and radiant tube heater
expansion must be provided. All piping must conform to local codes.
Provide a 1/8 in (3.2 mm) NPT plugged tapping, accessible for test gauge connection, immediately upstream of the gas supply connection to the heater.
DO NOT use pressure greater than 1/2 psig to pressure check the heater.
TEST FOR LEAKS: All gas piping and connections must be tested for leaks after
the installation is completed.
Apply soap suds solution to all connections and joints and if bubbles appear,
leaks have been detected and must be corrected. DO NOT USE A MATCH OR
OPEN FLAME OF ANY KIND TO TEST FOR LEAKS. NEVER OPERATE THE
HEATER WITH LEAKING CONNECTIONS.
The supply system should be checked first with heater turned “OFF” followed by
another check with heater turned “ON”.
IMPORTANT: Minimum supply line pressure at the inlet to the heater regulator must not be lower than 5.0 inches of water column pressure for natural
gas. The supply gas pressure must be checked with all heaters in operation.
Installation of a gas line (trap) “drip leg” is required at the inlet connection tee following the pipe drop to the heater. Failure to provide a “drip leg” could result in
condensation and foreign matter passing into the gas valve. Failure to install a
“drip leg” in the gas line can cause property damage, injury or death and will void
the heater warranty.

NOTE: Access to the manifold pressure test port is on the top of the valve. A 3/16" Allen
Wrench is necessary to check this. When checking or setting the manifold pressure, a water
manometer should be used. Gauges which measure in ounces per square inch or pounds
per square inch are not accurate enough to properly measure or set the pressure.
WARNING
THIS HEATER WILL EXPAND IN LENGTH AS IT HEATS UP. It is a normal
condition that during heat-up and cool-down a tube heater will expand and contract. Allowances for heater expansion must be made in the gas connection, venting and combustion air ducting. Improper installation, alteration, or adjustment
can result in property damage, injury or death.
The Btuh input and the tube length determine the overall expansion that occurs.
A typical infrared tube installation will expand toward both the Burner and the
vent end.
To allow heater expansion the gas supply must be installed using the flexible
gas connector supplied in the burner kit:
In the USA: a stainless steel Flexible Gas Connector certified for use on an
infrared radiant tube heater (ANSI Z21.24 CSA 6.10);
in CANADA: a Type 1 Hose Connector (CAN/CGA 8.1). Also the flue vent,
and combustion air intake (if used) must be installed in such a manner that
the normal expansion of the heater will be accommodated.
IMPORTANT: See next page: orientation of connection between heater and gas supply.

20 SEQUENCE OF OPERATION
The S87 ignition control module is powered by a 24v transformer and activated when the thermostat calls for heat. On every call for heat the S87J will delay start-up to provide a 30 second
system pre-purge. When the S87 is activated by a thermostat or call for heat an internal transformer provides power to the electronic generator circuit for Spark Ignition and the safety lockout timing begins. At the same time, the S87 opens the gas controls main valve allowing gas
to flow to the main Burner.
The S87 Control Module performs the following basic functions:
· Provides a 30 second system pre-purge
· Supplies power to the electronic pulse-generator circuit for the Spark Igniter (30,000 volts
open circuit).
· Allows 21 seconds for Ignition trial (TFI) before system safety lockout occurs.
· Senses the Burner flame for safe lighting
· Shuts off the spark after the Burner is lit.
Burner with direct spark ignition, sequence is as follows :
1a. Line Voltage Thermostat: Upon a call for heat by the line voltage Thermostat or “ON/
OFF” switch, the Blower and the 120/24 Volt Transformer in the burner are powered simultaneously with 115 volts.
1b. TruTemp / 24 Volt Thermostat:
Requires: Single heater per 24V thermostat - Relay Kit JS-0568-KT - installs in burner
Multiple heaters per 24V Thermostat - Control Center JM-0303-KT
The 120 volt supply to heater will power the 120v/24v Transformer and the 120V side of
the Blower switching relay simultaneously. A call for heat by the 24 volt Thermostat energizes the 24 volt control circuit and the 24v/120 volt relay powering the Blower.
2. The 24 volt control circuit powers the DSI control in series through the normally open Air
Pressure Switch (APS) and the normally closed Blocked Flue Switch (BFS).
3. The Blower creates a positive pressure and closes a normally open contact inside the Air
Proving Switch (APS).
4. 24 volts supplied to the DSI control initiates the 30 second pre-purge cycle.
5. After completing the 30 second pre-purge cycle the DSI control generates high voltage to
the Spark Igniter, and 24 volts to energize the Gas Valve.
6. The Burner will light and establish a steady flame.
7. Once the flame sensor determines there is a steady flame established, with a minimum
flame signal of 1.5 µA the spark igniter is then de-energized.
8. In the event ignition does not occur, the safety circuit will function to interrupt gas flow after
approximately 21 seconds and lock the system out. No further gas will flow until the power
has been manually interrupted for a period of 30 seconds. This will reset the ignition module and the operating sequence will restart at step #1
9. If the blower does not run, the blower air pressure switch (normally open contact) does not
close and power is not supplied to the ignition control.

22. SPARK IGNITION CIRCUIT
The step-up transformer in the ignition control provides spark ignition at 30,000 volts (open circuit). To check the spark ignition circuit, proceed as follows.
 Shut off gas supply to the gas control
 Disconnect the ignition cable at the ignition control stud terminal to isolate the circuit from
the Spark Igniter or Igniter / Sensor
 Prepare a short jumper lead, using heavily insulated wire such as ignition cable
CAUTION
In the next step, DO NOT allow fingers to touch either the stripped
end of the jumper or the stud terminal. This is a very high voltage circuit and
electrical shock, personal injury, or death can result.
 Perform this test immediately upon energizing the system before the Ignition Control goes
into safety lockout and interrupts the spark circuit. Touch one end of the jumper firmly to the
ignition control GND terminal. (DO NOT remove the existing ground lead.) Slowly move the
other end of the jumper wire toward the stud terminal on the Ignition Control to establish a
spark.
 Pull the wire away from the stud and note the length of gap at which spark discontinues.
 A spark length of 1/8 in. (3 mm) or more indicates satisfactory voltage output. If no arc can
be established, or the maximum spark is less than 1/8 in. (3 mm), and power to the Ignition
Control input terminals was proved, replace the Ignition Control.
TURN OFF THE POWER AND RECONNECT THE IGNITION WIRE TO THE IGNITION CONTROL STUD. DISCONNECT THE IGNITION WIRE FROM THE IGNITER AND REPEAT THE STEPS ABOVE BY GROUNDING
THE WIRE OUT TO THE TUBE BODY THIS TIME. TURN ON THE POWER AND PULL THE WIRE AWAY
FROM THE TUBE AND NOTE THE LENGTH OF GAP AT WHICH THE SPARK DISCONTINUES. IF THERE IS
NO SPARK OR WEAK SPARK REPLACE THE IGNITION WIRE.
SPARK IGNITER SET UP
Use the following diagram to check the Igniter gap. If the gap is incorrect all adjustments
should be made with the GROUND PRONG/PIN ONLY! DO NOT BEND THE IGNITER

23. FLAME SENSING CIRCUIT
The output of the flame sensing circuit cannot be checked directly on the S87 body.
Check the flame sensing circuit directly by checking the flame sensing current from the
sensor to the S87 as follows.
1. Connect a meter (dc microammeter scale) in series with the flame signal ground
wire as shown below. Using the Honeywell W136A Test Meter or equivalent.
Disconnect the ground wire from the S87. Connect the red (positive) meter lead to the
free end of the ground wire. Connect the black (negative) meter lead to the quickconnect ground terminal on the S87.
2. Restart the system and read the meter. The flame sensor current must be at least 1.5 uA
and steady. If the reading is less than 1.5µA or unsteady, see LOW OR UNSTEADY
FLAME CURRENT section, below.
If a flame is present at sensor and a reading of zero uA is obtained, check for a
secondary ground connection to the 24V (GND) terminal. If secondary connection
exists, temporarily remove connection and measure flame current.

LOW/ UNSTEADY FLAME CURRENT
If the current to the S87 flame circuit is less than 1.5
µA or is unsteady, check the burner flame, flame sensor location and electrical connections as follows.
Electrical Connections and Shorts
Connections at the flame sensor must be clean and
secure. If wiring needs replacement, use moisture
resistant #18 wire rated for continuous duty up to
2210 F [1050 C].
Flame Sensor
The flame signal is best when about 1 in. [25 mm] of
flame rod is immersed in the burner flame. A bent flame
rod, bent mounting bracket or cracked ceramic insulator will affect flame signal.
Replace flame sensor if necessary.
Burner Flame
The flame sensor must be constantly immersed in
flame. Check burner flame condition as shown opposite. Observe burner rating plate for the correct
gas pressure, and check with a manometer. If gas
pressure is correct check line and orifice for obstructions.

WARNING
START UP ‘SMOKE’
During start up, material coatings used in the production process of tubes and reflectors will
“burn off” and create smoke during the first hour of operation. This is temporary and normal.
Please ensure that there is sufficient ventilation to adequately clear the smoke from the space.
Notify site and safety personnel to ensure that alarm systems are not unduly activated.
