I. PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
This indirect water heater (IWH) is designed to generate domestic hot water in conjunction with a hot water boiler, or other
suitable heat source, using forced boiler water circulation. This indirect water heater consists of a stainless steel tank in which a
smooth stainless steel coil is located. Boiler water is pumped through the coil and heats the water in the tank. This product is not
intended for use in pool heating applications or for heating any other fluid other than water. It is also not intended for use in gravity hot water heating systems.
This manual shows installations where a hot water boiler is used as the heat source for the IWH, however other heat sources (such
as solar collectors) may be used provided that the following conditions are met:
1) The heat source must be able to provide a continuous supply of 180F water to the coil at the flow rates shown in Table 2.1.
If lower temperatures and/or flow rates are used, the performance shown in Table 2.1 may not be achieved.
2) The thermostat provided with this IWH must be installed and wired in such a way that it will interrupt the flow of heat
source water passing through the coil when its contacts open. Failure to control the heat source flow using this thermostat
could result in unreliable operation or personal injury or death due to scalding.
3) The fluid passing through the coil must be water or other non-toxic fluid having a toxicity rating or Class of 1 as listed in
Clinical Toxicology of Commercial Products (latest edition).
4) The heat source must be used in accordance with its manufacturer’s instructions and those of the authority having jurisdiction.
IMPORTANT NOTE
All models have a stored volume of less than 120 Gallons. When installed in accordance with these instructions, stored
potable water temperature in the tank is limited to a value of 210F or less by a temperature and pressure relief valve.
The maximum possible heat transfer rate across the coil (heat input) is less than 200,000BTU/hr with 210F potable
water provided that boiler or heat source water temperature is limited to:
MS2-030 – MS2-075: 250F
MS2-119: 220F
All models are therefore outside of the scope of both ASME Section IV, part HLW and ASME Section VIII when
installed in accordance with these instructions and with the boiler or heat source water temperature limited as shown
above.

III. BEFORE STARTING INSTALLATION
1) Be sure that the planned installation is in accordance with all local codes.
2) Be certain the domestic water supply to the indirect water heater (IWH) has physical and chemical characteristics that fall within the limits shown below. Where questions exist as to the composition of the water on the job, a qualified water treatment expert should be consulted.
3) Read and understand all installation requirements in this manual.
4) Make sure that both this IWH and the boiler are sized to meet the domestic hot water demand. For basic sizing information see Appendix A.
CAUTION
Water used in this indirect water heater must have characteristics falling within the following limits:
PH 6.0 – 8.0
Chloride Content – Less than 80PPM
Maximum domestic hot water temperature – 150F
Water failing to meet these requirements may severely shorten the life of this product due to
corrosion. Such corrosion damage is not covered by the warranty.
IV. LOCATING THE INDIRECT WATER HEATER
1) Table 2.3 shows the weight of each indirect water heater (IWH) filled with water. Make sure that the location chosen for the IWH is capable of supporting it.
WARNING
Failure to properly support an indirect water heater could result in property damage, personal injury or
death.
2) Locate the IWH in a location where a leak in the tank, the adjacent piping, or an open T&P valve will not damage the surrounding structure. If the surrounding area is highly susceptible to water damage, install the IWH in a pan with a drain.
3) The IWH may be located some distance from the boiler provided the zone system is designed to provide the flow called for in Table 2.1 through the coil. Also, the further the IWH is from the boiler, the longer the response of the boiler will be to a call from the IWH thermostat. If long runs exist between the boiler and IWH it is advisable to insulate the piping.
WARNING
Like all water heaters, this product may leak water at the end of its useful life. Where water from such
leakage could cause property damage, install this indirect water heater on a drain pan that is piped to
a suitable drainage point.

V. PIPING
A) BOILER SIDE PIPING
CAUTION
1. The heat transfer-medium must be water or other nontoxic fluid having a toxicity rating or Class of 1, as
listed in Clinical Toxicology of Commercial Products, 5th edition.
2. The pressure of the heat transfer medium must be limited to a maximum of 30 PSIG by an approved
safety or relief valve.
NOTICE
Use of the minimum pipe sizes shown in Table 7.2 is strongly recommended. Failure to size the
indirect water heater boiler-side piping and circulator may result in failure of the water heater to meet
the performance requirements shown in Table 2.1.
A typical boiler-side piping installation is shown in Figure 5.1. A circulator zone system is shown, but zoning can also be done
using two or three-way zone valves, as long as the boiler water flow rate called for in Table 2.1 can be achieved (this requirement is
harder to meet with some zone valves). If circulator zoning is used, check valves must be installed in each zone to prevent unwanted circulation through zones which are not calling for heat.
Table 5.2 shows combinations of circulators, pipe size, and equivalent length that will result in the flow rates called for in Table
2.1.
FIGURE 5.1: BOILER-SIDE PIPING USING CIRCULATOR ZONES
8
The maximum equivalent length shown in Table 5.2 is that for the indirect water heater loop (IWH loop). The IWH loop piping is
shaded in Figure 5.1. To calculate the equivalent length of this loop:
1) Count all fittings in the planned boiler loop.
2) Using Table 5.3, find the equivalent length of each fittings in the IWH loop. In doing this, keep the following in mind:
a. In many cases, there will be more than one pipe size in the IWH loop. As long as all piping in the loop exceeds the size shown in Table 5.2, conservative results can be obtained by treating all piping in the loop as though it were of the smallest size.
b. The equivalent length of most cast iron boilers can be safely treated as zero. This is often not the case, however, with condensing and water tube boilers. In such cases either use primary-secondary piping (Figure 5.4) or use an alternate method to size the pump and piping.
3) After the equivalent length for all fittings has been identified, total them and add the result to the total length of straight pipe in the loop. This sum is the total equivalent length for the IWH loop and must be less than that shown in Table 5.2 in order to use the circulators shown.
4) If primary-secondary piping is used as shown in Figure 5.4, calculation of equivalent length is exactly the same as shown above, except that IWH loop is the shaded piping in Figure 5.4 (i.e. the IWH loop does not pass through the boiler).
Example: A 40 gallon IWH is to be installed in the IWH loop piping shown in Figure 5.1 (shaded). The cast iron boiler has a
negligible pressure drop. The loop consists of the following pipe and fittings:

BASIC DOMESTIC PIPING
B) DOMESTIC SIDE PIPING
Figure 5.6 shows typical domestic water piping. All components except the control are provided by the installer. The function of
the components shown are as follows:
a) Temperature Control (required) - This control is provided by the factory and must be installed in the control
well location shown in Figure 2.2. Remove the cover and loosen the clamping screw. Apply the silver heat conductive compound supplied to bulb. Insert the capillary bulb so that it is “bottomed out” in the control well as shown in Figure 5.5 and screw the control clamp securely in the well groove at the end of the well. See Section VI for wiring details and Section VII for instructions on adjusting the temperature setting.
b) Shut-off valves (recommended) - Use to isolate the indirect water heater (IWH) for servicing.
c) Backflow Preventer (required by some codes) - Use to prevent water from backing out of the IWH in the event that inlet water pressure drops.
d) Expansion Tank (required when a backflow preventer is used) -This expansion tank absorbs the increased volume
caused by heating water. If a backflow preventer is installed, this expansion tank is required because the increased water
volume will otherwise have no place to go and the T&P valve will open. 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.
CAUTION
If an expansion tank is used, do not put any valves between the expansion tank and Indirect Water
Heater inlet.
e) Unions (optional) - Use to disconnect the IWH in the event that this is necessary.
f) Drain (Required) - Used to drain the IWH for inspection or servicing.
g) Temperature/Pressure Relief Valve (“T&P Valve” – Required) - Opens to relieve excess pressure or temperature which has developed in the Indirect Water Heater’s storage tank. This valve must comply with Z21.22 Standard for Relief Valves and Automatic Gas Shut-off Devices for Hot Water Supply Systems and must meet the following requirements:
Maximum Pressure Setting - 150psi
Maximum Temperature Setting - 210F
Inlet Size ¾” NPT Male.
Temperature Probe Element length (below male thread) 3 – 8 inches.
Minimum CSA capacity – Per Table 5.7
Note that minimum required CSA rating is specified in BTU/hr and depends upon the maximum high limit setting on the boiler. For low pressure steam boiler installations (where boiler water is drawn from below the water line) use the 221 - 250F column.
Pipe this valve as shown in Figure 5.6. Run the discharge pipe to a location where hot water will not cause injury or damage. Leave a 6” gap between the T&P valve pipe termination and the drain or closest obstruction. Do not run the T&P valve discharge to the outdoors or to other locations where water in this pipe could freeze or become blocked by debris. Make sure all discharge piping is pitched so as to allow complete drainage of any water in the line.
WARNING
Do not put any valves between the relief valve and the tank.
Do not reduce discharge pipe size.
Do not pipe the relief valve to a point where it could be exposed to freezing temperatures or become
plugged by debris.
11
FIGURE 5.5: AQUASTAT INSTALLATION
h) Heat Trap (Optional) - The heat trap retards the migration of heat from the IWH up the hot water supply pipe.
i) Vacuum Breaker (Recommended) - This valve protects the IWH in the event that the pressure in the tank falls below atmospheric. Use a Watts N-36 or equivalent.
PIPING WITH A “TEMPERATURE LIMITING VALVE”
Usually, the maximum temperature of the outlet water will stay near the setting of the control. In some cases, however, hot water
usage patterns can cause the outlet water temperature to rise significantly above the control setting. The temperature of water
going to the fixtures 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 IWH so that water at a more constant temperature exits the mixing
valve. Typical thermostatic mixing valve piping is illustrated in Figure 5.8. Consult a licensed plumber or the local plumbing
authority for requirements in your area.
WARNING
A thermostatic mixing valve does not eliminate the risk of scalding.
Set the thermostat as low as practical.
Feel water before bathing or showering.
If anti-scald or antichill protection is required, use devices specifically designed for such service.
Install these devices in accordance with their manufacturer’s instructions.

VI. WIRING
The following general notes apply to all wiring:
1) Wiring must be done in accordance with all codes. In the absence of any codes the system must be wired in
accordance with the National Electric Code (ANSI/NFPA 70).
2) The indirect water heater (IWH) is equipped with Honeywell a L4080B series temperature control. This control has a set of contacts which make upon a call for domestic water and break when this temperature is satisfied.
A. BASIC CIRCULATOR ZONE WIRING
Figure 6.1 is a connections diagram for a non-priority circulator zone system using Honeywell R845A’s. The R845A is equipped
with two sets of contacts (3,4 and 5,6) which become made when the T and T terminals are made. Terminals 1 and 2 on the
R845A are supplied with 120 VAC to power its internal transformer. In this application one R845A is provided for each zone
including that of the IWH.
When any thermostat (including the thermostat on the IWH calls for heat, the relay in the R845A for that zone becomes energized.
Terminals 3 and 4 become “made”, energizing the circulator. Terminals 5 and 6 are also made which start the boiler.
FIGURE 6.1: CIRC. ZONE WIRING (NON-PRIORITY)
USING HONEYWELL R845’S
15
B. ZONE VALVES
Figure 6.2 is a connections diagram for a zone system using Honeywell V8043F motorized zone valves. The motor on these
valves is connected between TH and TR. TH/TR is provided for the electrician’s convenience as a binding post and is connected
to nothing inside the valve. The “end switch” terminals are connected to a set of switch contacts inside the valve which become
made when the
valve is open.
A call for heat from any thermostat or the IWH aquastat results in the application of 24 volts across the motor in that zone’s zone
valve. This drives open the zone valve. When the valve has opened, the endswitch in that zone valve makes and brings on the
boiler.
FIGURE 6.2: ZONE VALVE WIRING
C. ZONE PANELS
Consult the zone panel manufacturer’s instructions for proper indirect water heater wiring.
WARNING
• Regardless of the control system selected, the L4080B on the indirect water heater must be the only
•
control that will permit boiler water to flow through the indirect water heater.
Use of other temperature controls in place of the L4080B supplied with this indirect water heater
could result in personal injury or death due to scalding.
16
VII. START-UP AND CHECK-OUT
1) Make sure that the system is free of leaks and that air is purged from the system.
DANGER
Never attempt to fill a hot empty boiler
WARNING
Fix any leaks found before proceeding further. Leakage from the boiler piping can result in severe
damage to the boiler.
2) Many soldering fluxes contain zinc chloride which can cause severe corrosion damage to stainless steel. After
completing all domestic water connections, flush the indirect water heater (IWH) thoroughly before leaving the installation. This is particularly important if the IWH will be unused for an extended period of time after installation. 3) Make sure that all electrical connections are correctly made and that no exposed high voltage wiring is present.
4) Temporarily disable the burner.
5) 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.
6) Re-enable the burner and allow the IWH zone to operate. Make sure that the IWH control shuts down the zone when it is satisfied.
7) The setting of control determines the maximum water temperature in the tank. The differential of the control is a fixed 8°F with a 150°F maximum setting, set by the manufacturer to the lowest setting of 100°F.
For the most energy efficient operation, adjust the control for the minimum water temperature necessary to meet domestic water needs. Because hot water presents a scald hazard, it is best to set the control at 120ºF or lower and raise it only if necessary to provide adequate hot water. See Table 7.2 for more information about scalding.
a) Adjust the dial shown in Figure 7.1 until the desired temperature setting on the dial is aligned with the arrow shown.
b) After the IWH completes a heat-up cycle, check the water temperature at the faucet. Allow enough
water to flow to ensure that the water temperature reflects the tank temperature. Adjust the IWH temperature setting as necessary.
i) Adjusting to a lower temperature setting will not immediately affect the water temperature. Draw
sufficient water or allow the water heater to sit until a heat-up cycle is initiated. Repeat steps a) and b).
ii) Adjusting to a higher temperature setting may not immediately affect the water temperature if
a heat-up cycle begins, return to steps a) and b). If a heat-up cycle does not begin, draw sufficient
water or allow the water heater to sit until a heat-up cycle is initiated. Repeat steps a) and b).

VIII. MAINTENANCE
This indirect water heater (IWH) 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 safe reliable supply of hot water:
* Verify proper operation of the L4080B control.
* Make sure the boiler and domestic water piping is free of leaks.
* If there is an oil lubricated circulator in the system, make sure that it is lubricated as called for by the circulator
manufacturer.
* The IWH 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 page 7, make sure that this system is properly maintained.

APPENDIX A. SIZING
NOTICE
The following procedures are used to size indirect water heaters based on the amount of hot water
which will be required during a given hour. In doing so it is assumed that this demand will be evenly
spread out over the course of the entire hour.
THESE SIZING PROCEDURES ARE PROVIDED AS A GUIDE TO ASSIST THE PROFESSIONAL
INSTALLER IN SIZING INDIRECT WATER HEATERS. BECAUSE OF THE LARGE VARIETY OF DEMAND
SITUATIONS ENCOUNTERED IN THE FIELD, THE SUITABILITY OF THESE PROCEDURES TO ALL
INSTALLATIONS CANNOT BE GUARANTEED.
Residential Applications
Table A.1 shows the minimum sized indirect water heater (IWH) that should be considered for one and two family homes based
on the numbers of bedrooms and bathrooms being served. In cases where the boiler is sized significantly larger than that shown
in column (e) in order to meet space heating demand, there is usually no need to add boiler capacity just for the IWH. Note that
the sizing recommendations shown in Table A.1 may not provide satisfactory performance when there are unusually high peak demands, such as when multiple showers are used simultaneously or when a hot tub is filled. To address these cases, review Tables
A.2 and A.3 and make adjustments to IWH model and/or boiler size, to make sure that the peak demand can be satisfied. For hot
tubs, it is recommended that the IWH model have a domestic water volume at least as large as the nominal volume of the tub.
Commercial Applications
Use a fixture count method to determine the domestic hot water demand, such as that shown in the Service Water Heating chapter of the ASHRAE Applications Handbook. Then use the data provided in Tables 2.1, A.2, and A.3 to select the boiler and IWH.
