1.1 INTRODUCTION

Description

The PulsaCoil 2000 shown schematically above is designed to provide an improved method of supplying mains pressure hot water when used with a suitable off peak electric supply/tariff.

The PC 125 model is only provided with one off peak immersion heater and it is only recommended for use when an Economy 10 or Heatwise tariff is available - see model selection guide on page 5 for details.

Because of the innovative method of hot water production no in-line scale reducer is normally required on the cold supply to the appliance.

If scale should become a problem the plate heat exchanger is easily isolated and replaced with a service exchange unit.

Because of the efficiency of the appliance improved SAP ratings can be achieved. Further details are available from the Gledhill Technical Department.

An important feature of the concept is that hot water can be supplied directly from the mains at conventional flow rates without the need for temperature and pressure relief safety valves or expansion vessels. This is achieved by passing the mains water through a plate heat exchanger. The outlet temperature of the domestic hot water is maintained by the Pump Speed Control (P.S.C.) board, which controls the speed of the pump circulating the primary water from the store through the plate heat exchanger.

* Note: The standard appliance is supplied as a manual fill model i.e. without a ballvalve and overflow which makes it particularly suitable for use in flats/apartments. A ballvalve and overflow fitting can be supplied as an optional extra if required.

The PSC incorporates the facility to automatically run the D.H.W. primary pump for about

3 seconds every 30 hours to help prevent it sticking.

1.3 SYSTEM DETAILS

Hot and Cold Water System

General

A schematic layout of the hot and cold water services in a typical small dwelling is shown below. PulsaCoil 2000 will operate at mains pressures as low as 1 bar and as high as 5 bar although the recommended range is 2-3 bar. If the manifolds (available as an optional extra) are being used the inlet pressure to the manifold must be a minimum of 2 bar. It is also important to check that all other equipment and components in the hot and cold water system are capable of accepting the mains pressure available to the property. If the mains pressure can rise above 5 bar or the maximum working pressure of any item of equipment or component to be fitted in the system, a pressure limiting (reducing) valve set to 3 bar will be required.

If a water meter is fitted in the service pipe, it should have a nominal rating to match the maximum hot and cold water peak demands calculated in accordance with BS 6700. This could be up to 60ltr/min in some properties.

Note : Each Pulsacoil 2000 is fitted with a strainer and flow regulator on the cold mains supply connection. If the supply pressure is less than 2 bar or if the manifolds

(available as an optional extra) are being used or if all taps are provided with flow regulators the flow regulator on the cold inlet should be removed.

No check valve or similar device should be fitted on the cold water supply branch to the PulsaCoil 2000.

Because of the innovative method of hot water production no scale reducer is required on the branch to the appliance. However, to comply with the Benchmark

Guidance Note for Water Treatment in Heating and Hot Water Systems the installer should check the hardness level of the water supply and if necessary fit a scale reducer to provide protection to the whole of the domestic water system.

The hot water flow rate from the PulsaCoil 2000 is directly related to the adequacy of the cold water supply to the dwelling. This must be capable of providing for those services, which could be required to be supplied simultaneously, and this maximum demand should be calculated using procedures defined in BS 6700.

Note: The diagram below shows the F & E cistern with ballvalve and warning/overflow pipe which can be fitted if required. However, the standard preferred arrangement is for the cistern to be manually filled from a temporary hose connection fitted with a double check valve.

1.3 SYSTEM DETAILS

Hot and Cold Water System

Pipe Sizing / Materials

To achieve even distribution of the available supply of hot and cold water, it is important in any mains pressure system, that the piping in a dwelling should be sized in accordance with BS 6700. This is particularly important in a large property with more than one bathroom.

However, the following rule of thumb guide lines should be adequate for most smaller property types as long as water pressures are within the recommended range of 2-3 bar.

1. A 15mm copper or equivalent external service may be sufficient for a

small 1bathroom dwelling (depending upon the flow rate available), but

the minimum recommended size for new dwellings is 22mm (25mm MDPE).

2. The internal cold feed from the main incoming stop tap to the PulsaCoil

should be run in 22mm pipe. The cold main and hot draw-off should also

be run in 22mm as far as the branch to the bath tap.

3. The final branches to the hand basins and sinks should be in 10mm and to

the baths and showers in 15mm. (1 metre minimum)

4. We would recommend that best results for a balanced system are

achieved by fitting appropriate flow regulators to each hot and cold

outlet. These MUST be fitted in cases where the final branch pipe sizes

are not as recommended in item 3 or water pressures are above the

recommended water pressure range of 2-3 bar. Details of suitable flow

regulators are provided in Appendix A.

rising mains via an independent branch.

The shower must incorporate or be fitted with the necessary check valves to provide back-syphonage protection in accordance with the Water Regulations.

The supply of hot and cold mains water directly to a bidet is permitted provided that it is of the over-rim flushing type and that a type ‘A’ air gap is incorporated.

Hot and Cold Water System

If the length of the hot water draw off pipework is excessive and the delivery time will be more than 60 seconds before hot water is available at the tap, you may wish to consider using trace heating to the hot water pipework such as the Raychem HWAT system. Please consult Gledhill Technical

Department for further details.

Note: If manifolds (available as an optional extra) are being used suitable flow regulators are automatically provided in the manifold and do not need to be provided at each outlet. See Appendix B for further details.

All the recommendations with regard to pipework systems in this manual are generally based on the use of BS/EN Standard copper pipework and fittings.

Note: A conventional pumped secondary circulation system is NOT suitable for use with this appliance.

It is important that the cold water pipework is adequately separated/protected from any heating/hot water pipework to ensure that the water remains cold and of drinking water quality.

However, we are happy that plastic pipework systems can be used in place of copper internally as long as the chosen system is recommended for use on domestic hot and cold water systems by the manufacturer and is installed fully in accordance with their recommendations.

This is particularly important in relation to use of push fit connections when using the optional flexible hose kits - see 2.2 Installation, Pipework connections.

It is also essential that if an alternative pipework material/system is chosen the manufacturer confirms that the design criteria of the new system is at least equivalent to the use of BS/EN Standard copper pipework and fittings.

Taps/Shower Fittings

Aerated taps are recommended to prevent splashing.

Any type of shower mixing valve can be used as long as both the hot and cold supplies are mains fed. However all mains pressure systems are subject to dynamic changes particularly when other hot and cold taps/showers are opened and closed. To minimise the impact of this we would always recommend the use of thermostatic showers with this appliance.

The shower head provided must also be suitable for mains pressure supplies.

However, if it is proposed to use a ‘whole body’ or similar shower with a number of high flow/pressure outlets please discuss with the Gledhill technical department.

The hot water supply to a shower-mixing valve should be fed wherever practical directly from the PulsaCoil 2000 or be the first draw-off point on the hot circuit. The cold supply to a shower-mixing valve should wherever practical be fed directly from the

PulsaCoil 2000 Schematic Wiring Diagram

Electrical Installation

The Schematic arrangement of the wiring within the PulsaCoil 2000 is shown above.

The whole of the electrical installation shall be designed and installed by a competent person fully in accordance with the latest edition of the Requirements for Electrical installations BS 7671.

The PulsaCoil 2000 appliance is provided with two side entry 3kW immersion heaters and has been designed to generally operate with an off peak supply.

The lower immersion heater heats the whole of the contents and is normally connected to the off peak supply.

Page 11

1.0 DESIGN

1.3 SYSTEM DETAILS

Electrical Installation

The upper immersion heater is positioned at a level on the PulsaCoil 2000 to provide sufficient hot water for at least one bath - see Technical Data Table on page 5. This is connected to the unrestricted on peak supply and is normally switched manually by the householder to provide a day time boost when required. Alternatively a time clock could be wired into this supply to provide an automatic boost on a daily basis if preferred.

Two typical methods of providing electrical supplies are shown below for information.

However, the PulsaCoil 2000 appliance is suitable for use with any method of supply

- if unsure please consult Gledhill Technical

Department for further assistance.

NOTE: The PC 125 model is only supplied with a lower immersion heater.

The size of the appliance and the need to use the on peak boost facility is reduced if a better off peak tariff can be agreed with the electrical supply company - see Model

Selection Guide on page 5.

If separate circuits are provided the two switches must be clearly labelled for the householders use.

A 3 amp supply is also required from the unrestricted on peak supply for the control circuit.

Although the PulsaCoil 2000 appliance is primarily designed to operate with an off peak supply it will also operate quite successfully if it is only supplied with an on peak supply.

However, this will substantially increase the running costs of the appliance and should only be considered if an off peak supply is not available.

Note:

In addition to the supplies to the immersion heaters, PulsaCoil 2000 requires a 3 amp supply for the control circuit. This 3 amp supply must be provided via a fused 3 amp double pole isolator providing 3mm of separation to both poles.

2.1 SITE REQUIREMENTS

The appliance is designed to be installed in an airing/cylinder cupboard and the relevant minimum dimensions are provided in section 1.2 Technical Data.

Because of the ease of installation we recommend that the cupboard construction is completed and painted before installation of the appliance. The cupboard door can be fitted after installation.

If the unit needs to be stored prior to installation it should be stored upright in a dry environment and on a level base/floor.

Installation and maintenance access is needed to the front of the appliance and above the F & E cistern. See Section 1.2 Technical Data for further details.

The minimum dimensions contained in section 1.2 Technical Data allow for the passage/connection of pipes to the appliance from any direction as long as the appliance is installed on the installation base provided. If the installation base is not used extra space may be needed to allow connection to the pipework and the whole of the base area should be continuously supported on a material which will not easily deteriorate if exposed to moisture.

The floor of the cupboard needs to be level and even and capable of supporting the weight of the appliance when full. Details of the weight when full is provided in section 1.2 Technical Data.

The appliance is designed to operate as quietly as practicable. However, some noise

(from pumps etc) is inevitable when hot water is being used. This will be most noticeable if the cupboards are located adjacent to bedrooms, on bulkheads, or at the mid span of a suspended floor.

Cupboard temperatures will normally be higher than in a conventional system and the design of the cupboard and door will need to take this into account. No ventilation is normally required to the cupboard.

The separate feed and expansion cistern will need to be located on top of the appliance or at high level in the cupboard housing the PulsaCoil 2000. The dimensions and clearances are provided in section 1.2 Technical Data. The location will need to provide a suitable route for the cold feed and expansion pipe as well as the open safety vent pipe. The location will also need to provide a suitable route and discharge position for the warning/overflow pipe and the ballvalve supply from the mains cold water system (if provided).

Note: The standard appliance is supplied with a cistern without a ballvalve/ overflow for filling manually.

An electrical supply must be available which is correctly earthed, polarized and in accordance with the latest edition of the IEE requirements for electrical Installations

BS 7671.

The electrical mains supply needs to be 230V/50Hz.

The sizes/types of electrical supplies must be as detailed in 1.3 System Details,

Electrical Installation and the connections must be made using a double-pole linked isolator with a contact separation of 3mm in both poles which are located within 1m of the appliance. The supplies must only serve the appliance.

The hot and cold water ‘first fix’ pipework should be terminated 50mm above the finished floor level in accordance with the dimensions provided in 1.2 Technical

Data.

HANDLING

When lifting the unit work with someone of similar build and height if possible.

Choose one person to call the signals.

Lift from the hips at the same time, then raise the unit to the desired level.

Move smoothly in unison.

Larger units may require a team lift.

Preparation/placing the appliance in position.

The ‘first fix’ pipework positions should be checked using the template provided with each appliance. If these have been followed installation is very simple and much quicker than any other system.

The appliance is supplied shrink wrapped on a timber installation base. Carrying handles are also provided in the back of the casing.

The feed and expansion cistern complete with ballvalve, cold feed/expansion and overflow/warning pipe fittings are provided in a separate box.

If flexible connections have been ordered these will also be inside the feed and expansion cistern.

The appliance should be handled carefully to avoid damage and the recommended method is shown above.

Note: Although the above guidance is provided any manual handling/lifting operations will need to comply with the requirements of the Manual Handling Operations

Regulations issued by the H.S.E.

The appliance can be moved using a sack truck on the rear face although care should be taken and the route should be even.

In apartment buildings containing a number of storeys we would recommend that the appliances are moved vertically in a mechanical lift.

If it is proposed to use a crane expert advice should be obtained regarding the need for slings, lifting beams etc.

2.0 INSTALLATION

2.2 INSTALLATION

Before installation the site requirements should be checked and confirmed as acceptable.

The plastic cover and protective wrapping should be removed from the appliance and the installation base (provided) placed in position.

The appliance can then be lifted into position in the cupboard on top of the base and the front panel removed by unscrewing the 2 screws and lifting the door up and out, ready for connection of the pipework and electrical supplies.

The feed and expansion cistern support shall be installed ensuring that the base is fully supported, the working head of the appliance is not exceeded and the recommended access is provided for maintenance - see section 1.2 Technical Data for details.

Pipework connections

The position of the pipework connections is shown opposite. The connection sizes and dimensions are listed in Section 1.2 Technical

Data.

All the connections are also labelled on the appliance. It is essential that the pipework is connected to the correct connection.

The connections can be hard piped but we recommend the use of flexible connections

(available as an optional extra).

If using push fit connectors with the flexible hose kits it is important to check that they are compatible. Written approval has already been obtained for:-

Hepworth - Hep

O BiTite

John Guest - Speedfit

Yorkshire - Tectite

However, as similar assurances cannot be obtained for Polypipe fittings we cannot recommend their use.

Connections A, B and D are plain ended copper pipe.

Connection C is a compression fitting.

Connection E is RC1⁄2 (1⁄2 in BSPT internal)

A - Safety open vent

B - Cold feed/expansion

C - Incoming mains cold water

D - Domestic hot water

E - Drain tap connection

Note: The safety open vent and cold feed/ expansion should be connected to the

F & E cistern using the pipework assembly provided.

All factory made joints should be checked after installation in case they have been loosened during transit.

The fittings for the feed and expansion cistern should be installed following the instructions provided by the manufacturer in a position to suit the particular location and the cistern fitted on its supports/base.

The cold feed/expansion and safety open vent should be installed between the appliance and the feed and expansion cistern.

2.0 INSTALLATION

2.2 INSTALLATION

It is normally envisaged that the feed and expansion cistern will be located in the same cupboard as the PulsaCoil 2000 appliance itself to maintain a dry roof space.

The cold feed/open vent pipework assembly

(as supplied) should be used if it is intended to install the F & E cistern directly on top of the appliance.

However, if it is necessary to locate the cistern in the roof space (or on a higher floor) the cold feed/open vent pipework assembly (as supplied) should be used to connect to the F & E cistern and pipework site run by the installler to connect this to the appliance.

Obviously, any pipework in the roof space and the feed and expansion cistern will need to be adequately insulated to protect against frost damage.

Combined feed and open vent pipe arrangements must not be used.

No valves should be fitted in the safety open vent which must be a minimum of

22mm copper pipe or equivalent.

The mains cold water supply to the ballvalve shall be provided with a suitable servicing valve.

The overflow/warning pipe (if provided) shall have a continuous fall, be fitted to discharge clear of the building and be sited so that any overflow can be easily observed. It shall also be installed in a size and material suitable for use with heating feed and expansion cisterns in accordance with BS 5449 (e.g 22mm copper) and should not have any other connections to it.

Note: If a warning/overflow pipe is NOT provided the F & E cistern should be filled from a temporary hose connection supplied from any cold water tap or from a permanent cold branch provided adjacent to the F & E cistern. The temporary hose must be fitted with a double check valve and removed once the appliance is filled.

NOTE: The three 230V, 50Hz supplies should be as shown in the schematic diagram on page 12.

The PC 125 model is only supplied with the lower (off peak) immersion heater.

2.0 INSTALLATION

2.2 INSTALLATION

Electrical Connection - Standard Appliance

The PulsaCoil 2000 is pre-wired to a 12 way terminal strip from the A.C.B. and plumbers are well able to complete the electrical installation as long as they are competent to carry out the work strictly in accordance with the IEE

Requirements for Electrical Installations BS

7671. The arrangement of the wiring is shown on the previous page.

All the terminals are suitably labelled.

Note: Do not attempt the electrical work unless you are competent to carry it out to the above standards.

Before commencing check that the power source is in accordance with section 2.1 Site

Requirements and ensure that it is isolated.

Run the external wiring from the adjacent isolator through the service slot provided in the base of the appliance.

Make the connections as shown opposite on the terminal strip provided.

Clamp the cables in the grips provided below the terminal strip and ensure all cables are routed to avoid hot surfaces.

Note: The appliance pipework should be bonded to earth to comply with the IEE

Requirements for Electrical Installations BS

7671.

The appliance is provided with a 4.0mm earth cable from a strap on the case to the earth stud on the wiring panel.

Before switching on the electrical supply check all the factory made terminal connections to ensure they have not become loose during transit.

2.3 COMMISSIONING

Open the incoming stop valve and fill the domestic mains cold and hot water systems including the PulsaCoil 2000 appliance.

Check the water level in the feed and expansion cistern and if a ballvalve is fitted adjust if necessary.

Check the whole of the domestic hot and cold distribution systems for leaks.

Page 19

Page 18

2.0 INSTALLATION

2.3 COMMISSIONING

Fully flush and if necessary chlorinate the hot and cold water system in accordance with the recommendations in the Water Regulations and BS 6700.

Once the system is finally filled turn down the servicing valve for the ballvalve in the F & E cistern to the point where the warning/overflow pipe will cope with the discharge arising from a ballvalve failure.

If an overflow is not provided ensure the temporary filling hose is isolated and removed from its connection to the cold water supply.

It is essential that all systems function properly for optimum performance.

Run a tap and using a digital thermometer check that the temperature of the hot water is about 55°C. This temperature is factory set and is independent of the store temperature and hot water flow rates.

This product is covered by the ‘Benchmark’ scheme and a separate commissioning/ service log book is included with this product. This must be completed during commissioning and left with the product to meet the Warranty conditions offered by Gledhill.

To achieve this the flow rate from each tap should be checked and a suitable number of taps run simultaneously to check the impact of this on the flow rate at individual taps.

Important Do’s and Don’ts

We recommend that flow restrictors are provided for each tap/terminal fitting to ensure that the available flow is shared evenly - See Appendix A for further details.

Commissioning the PulsaCoil Control System

Once the PulsaCoil 2000 is filled with water one end of the link (L1) can be removed from terminal 12, inserted into terminal 11, and the electrical supplies switched on.

WARNING - Inserting this link into terminal 11 will complete the electrical control circuit and allow a supply to the immersion heaters. DO NOT INSERT THIS LINK AND

SWITCH ON THE ELECTRICITY SUPPLY UNTIL YOU HAVE CHECKED THAT THERE

IS WATER IN THE F & E CISTERN . Failure to do this will result in dry firing and premature failure of the immersion heaters.

The green indicating lamp on the front of the appliance will light to show the control circuit supply is live.

The red indicating lamp will only light to indicate a fault condition, (See 3.4 Fault

Finding for further details).

Note: It will light initially if the electricity is switched on and the link has not been moved from terminal 12 to terminal 11.

When the green indicating lamp is lit switch on the on-peak (top) immersion heater and allow the appliance to reach temperature. Check that the rod thermostat mounted in the on peak immersion heater has switched off at the correct temperature of approx 72ºC.

When this has been proven isolate the incoming power supplies and remove the incoming on and off peak supplies from the immersion heater supply terminals.

Temporarily reconnect the on peak supplies to the off peak terminals (numbers 8, 9) and 10) and allow the appliance to reach temperature.

Check the rod thermostat has switched off the off peak immersion heater at the correct temperature of approx 72ºC.

1. DO check the incoming mains water pressure. The preferred range of mains pressure is 2 -3 bar.

2. DO check the flow rate of the incoming cold water main is adequate to meet the maximum hot and cold water simultaneous demands.

3. DO check that all connections are in accordance with the labelling on the thermal store.

4. DO NOT insert link (L1) and switch on the electricity supply until you have checked that the appliance is full of water i.e. there is water in the F & E cistern.

5. DO check the water level is correctly set in the F & E cistern when cold and that there is no overflow when the appliance is up to temperature.

6. DO check that the rod thermostats switch the immersion heaters on/off at the correct set points i.e. approx 72°C.

7. DO insulate any exposed hot water pipework in the PulsaCoil cupboard.

8. If the ballvalve in the F & E cistern is permanently connected to the mains cold water supply DO plumb the overflow/ warning pipe in a 20mm internal diameter pipe and ensure it discharges in a conspicuous external position. Use a material which is suitable for use with heating F & E cisterns in accordance with

BS 5449 (such as copper).

9. DO ensure the green light is ‘on’ and the red fault light is off.

10. DO ensure that the functioning and control of the system is explained to the occupant.

If the control thermostats do not switch off the immersion heaters at the correct temperature the overheat thermostat will operate the manual reset button. In this case check and adjust or replace the relevant rod thermostat and reset the overheat button. Reduce the store temperature by running some hot water and repeat the test relevant to the immersion heater/control thermostat concerned.

These instructions should be placed along with the component manufacturers instructions in the pocket provided on the rear of the front panel. The front panel should then be refitted.

Once it has been proved that the control thermostats are working correctly isolate the incoming power supplies and re-connect the immersion heater supplies in accordance with the details in 2.2 Installation.

3.0 SERVICING

3.1 ANNUAL SERVICING

No annual servicing of the PulsaCoil 2000 is necessary.

However, if required, the operation of the controls and a hot water performance test can be carried out to prove the appliance is working satisfactorily and within its specification.

3.2 CHANGING

COMPONENTS

Free of charge replacements for any faulty components are available from Gledhill during the in-warranty period on return of the faulty part (normally 12 months).

After this, spares can be obtained direct from Gledhill using the ‘Speed Spares’ service, or through any of the larger plumbers merchants/specialist heating spares suppliers.

Help and advice is also available from the

Technical Helpline on 01253 474401.

However, all components are readily accessible and can be changed quickly and easily by the installer using common plumbing practice.

If it is necessary to replace the pump fitted to the appliance the pump head (motor pack) only should be removed as recommended by Grundfos. Assuming it is within warranty this will be accepted by a merchant as being covered by the Grundfos national service exchange agreement, as long as it is a complete pump i.e. alleged faulty motor pack and new base is left with the merchant. It is important when a pump has been replaced to ensure that any air is adequately vented and the pump is set on speed 3.

3. Overflow from Feed and Expansion Cistern

Check that the controlled level of water in the cistern is no higher than necessary.

Adjust if required or check the ballvalve is shutting off the water supply.

4. Operation of the red indicating lamp on the front of the appliance.

This will light to indicate a fault condition. Initiallly this may be due to a failure to move one end of the link (L1) from Terminal 12 to Terminal 11.

However, once the unit is in use it will indicate an overheat condition and the manual overheat button will have popped out. If this is the case check and replace as necessary the relevant immersion heater thermostat (set to 75ºC).

Manually reset the appliance by pressing in the manual overheat button (inside the appliance front cover).

3.4 FAULT FINDING

A number of the DHW faults indicated in the above chart will be indicated by the pump speed control PCB.

The layout of the pump speed control board is shown opposite. In faulty conditions if the hot water outlet temperature exceeds 60º, the pump speed will be reduced to minimum and if the outlet temperature exceeds 65ºC, the pump will be switched off until the outlet temperature reduces to 50ºC.

If hot water has not been used for a period of

30 hours the pump speed control board will run the pump for approximately 3 seconds to help prevent it sticking.

The red LED on the pump speed control board will also flash differently to indicate a number of fault conditions - see diagram opposite. If necessary change the faulty sensor (fault 2,3, or 4) board (fault 5) or fuse/check electrics

(fault 6) to resolve the problem.

If the problem cannot be resolved by the installer the manufacturer should be contacted.

When requiring a visit from the manufacturer the installer must have the completed ‘Benchmark’ commissioning/ service record sheet to hand to enable help to be provided.

Vast quantities of water are needlessly run off to waste due to

Taps, Mixers and Showers discharging flow rates far in excess of the rates required for them to perform their duties.

The contrasting flow rates shown on this leaflet clearly illustrate the savings that can be made whilst still providing a good performance.

British made Aquaflow Regulators provide constant flow rates by automatically compensating for supply pressure changes between 1 bar & 10 bars.

To facilitate installation into the wide range of plumbing equipment which is encountered in the U.K, Four Fixing

Options are available:-

OPTIONS FOR SHOWERS

1. MXF “DW” Range - For fitting behind Fixed Shower Heads

or onto Flexible Hoses for Handshowers (preferably onto

the inlet end when lightweight hoses are used).

2. Compression Fitting Range. “In Line” regulators as in Option

4 for Taps & Mixers.

4 FIXING OPTIONS FOR TAPS &

MIXERS

1. MK Range - Combined Regulators & Aerator

for screwing onto Taps & Mixers with internal

or external threads on their noses. Anti Vandal

models also available.

2. MR05-T Range - Internal Regulators. Push-fit

into Tap or Mixer seats. Produced in three

sizes - 12.5mm (BS1010), 12mm & 10mm,

Flangeless models also available for Taps

with Low Lift washers.

3. MXF Standard Range - Screw on tail

models for Taps & Mixers. Fix onto the tails

The arrangement of each manifold is supplied as shown. This provides the best balance of flows but the flow regulators/duty of each branch can be changed if required as long as a reasonable balance is maintained. If it is necessary to change or clean the flow regulator this can be done without needing to drain the system by closing the valve and removing the screwed cover below the white plastic cover.

The manifolds are designed to be used with plastic pipework and are supplied complete with isolation valves and flow regulators on each branch. They would normally be installed in the same cupboard as the thermal storage appliance (as shown on page 36) but can be installed in another cupboard close to the appliance if required.

An optional location where cupboard space is tight

APPENDIX B

The pressure loss through a flow regulator at the designated flow rate is about 1.8 bar.

Therefore for the flow regulator to control the flow rate at pre-set level, the inlet pressure must be greater than 1.8 bar. If the inlet pressure is lower, the flow rate will be correspondingly less than the pre-set values.

The maximum equivalent pipe lengths from the manifold to the terminal fittings can be estimated from the above information and the resistance characteristics of the pipes.

The examples presented below are for 15mm copper pipe in table 1 and for plastic pipework in table 2.

The size of the distribution pipes supplying the manifold should be calculated using the method set out in BS 6700. A typical diagrammatic arrangement of a system using

Manifold Type 1 is shown below. This is only meant to show the principles involved and the actual connection of fittings to the manifold will need to suit the arrangements shown on page 35.

Note 1 - If it is proposed to fit chemical water treatment such as a water softener this should be fitted in this location and the cold water branch in the sink should be branched off the cold water main prior to the treatment device instead of the cold water manifold.

Any other isolating/control valves and backflow protection devices should be provided as necessary to comply with the

Water Regulations.
