FUEL GAS ODOR
Propane gas and natural gas have man-m
made odorants added specifically for detection of fuel gas leaks.
If a gas leak occurs, you should be able to smell the fuel gas.
THAT’S YOUR SIGNAL TO GO INTO IMMEDIATE ACTION!
■ Do not take any action that could ignite the fuel gas. Do
not operate any electrical switches. Do not pull any
power supply or extension cords. Do not light matches
or any other source of flame. Do not use your telephone.
■ Get everyone out of the building and away from the area
immediately.
■ Close all propane gas tank or cylinder fuel supply valves,
or the main fuel supply valve located at the meter if you
use natural gas.
■ Propane gas is heavier than air and may settle in low
areas. When you have reason to suspect a propane
leak, keep out of all low areas.
■ Natural gas is lighter than air and can collect around
rafters or ceilings.
■ Use your neighbor’s phone and call your fuel gas
supplier and your fire department. Do not re-enter the
building or area.
■ Stay out of the building and away from the area until
declared safe by the firefighters and your fuel gas
supplier.
■ FINALLY, let the fuel gas service person and the
firefighters check for escaped gas. Have them air out
the building and area before you return. Properly trained
service people must repair the leak, check for further
leakages, and then relight the appliance for you.
ODOR FADING -- NO ODOR DETECTED
■ Some people cannot smell well. Some people cannot
smell the odor of the man-m
made chemical added to
propane or natural gas. You must determine if you can
smell the odorant in these fuel gases.
■ Learn to recognize the odor of propane gas and natural
gas. Local propane gas dealers and your local natural
gas supplier (utility) will be more than happy to give you
a “scratch and sniff” pamphlet. Use it to become
familiar with the fuel gas odor.
■ Smoking can decrease your ability to smell. Being
around an odor for a period of time can affect your
sensitivity to that particular odor. Odors present in
animal confinement buildings can mask fuel gas odor.
■ The odorant in propane gas and natural gas is colorless
and the intensity of its odor can fade under some
circumstances.
■ If there is an underground leak, the movement of gas
through the soil can filter the odorant.
■ Propane gas odor may differ in intensity at different
levels. Since propane gas is heavier than air, there may
be more odor at lower levels.
■ Always be sensitive to the slightest gas odor. If you
continue to detect any gas odor, no matter how small,
treat it as a serious leak. Immediately go into action as
discussed previously.
ATTENTION -- CRITICAL POINTS TO REMEMBER!
■ Propane gas and natural gas have a distinctive odor.
Learn to recognize these odors. (Reference “Fuel Gas
Odor” and “Odor Fading” sections above.
■ Even if you are not properly trained in the service and
repair of the heater, ALWAYS be consciously aware of the
odors of propane gas and natural gas.
■ If you have not been properly trained in repair and service
of propane gas and natural gas fueled heaters, then do
not attempt to light heater, perform service or repairs, or
make any adjustments to the heater on propane gas or
natural gas fuel system.
■ A periodic “sniff test” around the heater or at the
heater’s joints; i.e. hose, connections, etc., is a good
safety practice under any conditions. If you smell even a
small amount of gas, CONTACT YOUR FUEL GAS
SUPPLIER IMMEDIATELY. DO NOT WAIT!

Installation Instructions
GENERAL
WARNING
Fire or explosion hazard.
Can cause property damage, severe injury or death.
1. Disconnect power supply before wiring to prevent
electrical shock or equipment damage.
2. To avoid dangerous accumulation of fuel gas, turn
off gas supply at the appliance service valve before
starting installation, and perform gas leak test after
completion of installation.
3. Do not force the gas control knob. Use only your
hand to turn the gas control knob. Never use any
tools. If the knob will not operate by hand, the
control should be replaced by a qualified service
technician. Force or attempted repair may result in
fire or explosion.
1. Read all safety precautions and follow L. B. White
recommendations when installing this heater. If
during the installation or relocating of heater, you
suspect that a part is damaged or defective, call a
qualified service agency for repair or replacement.
2. Make sure the heater is properly positioned before
use. Observe and obey all minimum safe distances of
the heater to the nearest combustible materials.
Minimum safe distances are given on the heater
nameplate and on page 4 of this manual.
3. The heater is approved for indoor use only.
4. The heater is not for use with ductwork.
5. The heater shall be installed so that it is not directly
exposed to water spray, rain, and dripping water.
6. Certified construction heaters include a gas hose and
single-stage regulator. The single-stage regulator is to
be used only in applications where temporary use of
the heater is required. Contact the L.B. White Co. or
your fuel gas supplier if you have questions.
7.
For permanent heater installations, two-stage gas
regulation is required. The heater’s second-stage
regulator (with pressure relief valve) should be
installed outside of building. Any regulators inside the
buildings must be properly vented to the outside.
Local, state and national codes always apply to
regulator installation. Natural gas regulators with vent
limiting device may be mounted indoors without
venting to outdoors.
8. Insure that all accessories that ship within the heater
have been removed from inside of heater and
installed. This pertains to air diverters, hose,
regulators, etc.
9. Make certain that a sediment trap is installed at the
gas valve inlet to prevent foreign materials (pipe
compound, pipe chips and scale) from entering the
gas valve. Debris blown into the gas valve may cause
that valve to malfunction resulting in a serious gas
leak that could result in a possible fire or explosion
causing loss of products, building or even life. A
properly installed sediment trap will keep foreign
materials from entering the gas valve and protect the
safe functioning of that important safety component.
10. Any heater connected to a piping system must have an
accessible, approved manual shut off valve installed
within six feet (6 ft.) of the appliance it serves.
11. Check all connections for gas leaks using approved
gas leak detectors. Gas leak testing is performed as
follows:
WARNING
■
■
■
■
Fire and Explosion Hazard
Do not use open flame (matches, torches, candles,
etc.) in checking for gas leaks.
Use only approved leak detectors.
Failure to follow this warning can lead to fires or
explosions.
Fires or explosions can lead to property damage,
personal injury or loss of life.
-- Check all pipe connections, hose connections,
fittings and adapters upstream of the gas
control with approved gas leak detectors.
-- In the event a gas leak is detected, check the
components involved for cleanliness and
proper application of pipe compound before
further tightening.
-- Furthermore tighten the gas connections as
necessary to stop the leak.
-- After all connections are checked and any
leaks are stopped, turn on the main burner.
-- Stand clear while the main burner ignites to
prevent injury caused from hidden leaks that
could cause flashback.
-- With the main burner in operation, check all
connections, hose connections, fittings and
joints as well as the gas control valve inlet and
outlet connections with approved gas leak
detectors.
-- If a leak is detected, check the components
involved for cleanliness in the thread areas and
7
proper application of pipe compound before
further tightening.
-- Tighten the gas connection as necessary to
stop the leak.
-- If necessary, replace the parts or components
involved if the leak cannot be stopped.
-- Ensure all gas leaks have been identified and
repaired before proceeding.
12.
A qualified service agency must check for proper
operating gas pressure upon installation of the heater.
13. Light according to instructions on heater or within
owner's manual.
16. This heater can be configured for use with either
propane gas vapor withdrawal or natural gas. Consult
the dataplate, located on the case panel at the burner
end of the heater, for the gas configuration of the
specific heater. Do not use the heater in a propane
gas liquid withdrawal system or application. If you are
in doubt, contact the L.B. White Co., Inc.
17. Eventually, like all electrical/mechanical devices, the
thermostat can fail. Thermostat failure may result in
either an underheating or overheating condition which
may damage critical products and/or cause animal
injury or death. Critical products and/or animals
should be protected by a separate back-up control
system that limits high and low temperatures and also
activates appropriate alarms.
14. It is extremely important to use the proper size and
type of gas supply line to assure proper functioning of
the heater. Contact your fuel gas supplier for proper
line sizing and installation.
18. Take time to understand how to operate and maintain
the heater by using this Owner’s Manual. Make sure
you know how to shut off the gas supply to the building
and also to the individual heater. Contact your fuel
gas supplier if you have any questions.
15. Make sure the heater has the proper gas regulator for
the application. A regulator must be connected to the
gas supply so that gas pressure at the inlet to the gas
valve is regulated within the range specified on the
dataplate at all times. Contact your gas supplier, or
the L.B. White Co., Inc. if you have any questions.
19. Any defects found in performing any of the service or
maintenance procedures must be eliminated and
defective parts replaced immediately. The heater
must be retested by properly qualified service
personnel before placing the heater back into use.

Cleaning Instructions
WARNING
Fire, Burn, and Explosion Hazard
■ This heater contains electrical and mechanical components in the gas management, safety and airflow systems.
■ Such components may become inoperative or fail due to dust, dirt, wear, aging, or the corrosive atmosphere of an
animal confinement building.
■ Periodic cleaning and inspection as well as proper maintenance are essential to avoid serious injury or property
damage.
1. Before cleaning, shut off all gas supply valves and
disconnect electrical supply.
2. The heater should have dirt or dust removed
periodically:
a. After each use, give the heater a general cleaning
using compressed air or a soft brush on its interior
and exterior. At this time, dust off the motor case
to prevent the motor from over-heating and
shutting the heater down.
b. At least once a year, give the heater a thorough
cleaning. At this time, remove the fan and motor
assembly and brush or blow off the fan wheel,
giving attention to the individual fan blades.
Additionally, make sure the burner air inlet venturi
ports and the “throat” of the casting are free of
dust accumulation and the area between the heat
chamber top and inside case is also free of dust.
WARNING
This heater must not be washed. Use of a pressure
washer, water or liquid cleaning solution on this heater
can cause severe personal injury or property damage due
to water and/or cleaning solution:
A. In electrical components, connections and wires
causing electrical shock or component failure.
B. On gas control components causing corrosion which
can result in gas leaks and fire or explosion from the
leak.
The heater must be cleaning in accordance with the
manufacturer’s instructions without being subjected to
liquid spray or wetting.
c. Observe and obey the Warning within these
Cleaning Instructions. This same Warning is also
supplied on the heater.
Maintenance Instructions
1. Have your gas supplier check all gas piping annually
for leaks or restrictions in gas lines. Also, at this time
have your gas supplier clean out the sediment trap of
any debris that may have accumulated.
2. The appliance area shall be kept clear and free from
combustible materials, gasoline, and other flammable
vapors and liquids.
3. Regulators can wear out and function improperly.
Have your gas supplier check the date codes on all
regulators installed and check delivery pressures to
the appliance to make sure that the regulator is
reliable.
4. Regulators must be periodically inspected to make
sure the regulator vents are not blocked. Debris,
insects, insect nests, snow, or ice on a regulator can
block vents and cause excess pressure at the
appliance.

Heater Component Function
Air Proving Switch
Safety device used to insure that the proper air flow is being
achieved before the gas valve is opened. (115,000 and
170,000 Btuh Heaters)
Burner
Cast iron component used to channel gas and provide an
area at which the fuel may ignite.
Burner Orifice
Brass metering device used to feed gas to burner at a
specific rate.
Fan Housing
Chamber used for compressing air for efficient air
movement.
Fan Wheel
Component used in conjunction with the motor and fan
housing to pull the hot air from heater and blow it into room
for heating (also known as a “squirrel cage”).
Gas Hose
Flexible connector used to convey gas from supply line in
building to heater.
Heat Chamber
Metal “fire box” within the appliance that provides an area
where burner flame mixes with combustion air thereby
providing heat.
High Limit Switch
Safety device wired into the control system which is used to
break an electrical circuit to the gas control valve in event of
overheat situation.
Motor
Electric device used to force preheated air through the
heater and to circulate heat within a certain area. Converts
electrical energy into mechanical energy.
Pilot Light Orifice
A metering device used to supply gas for the dual purpose of
igniting the main burner and heating the thermocouple.
Pilot Safety Control Valve
A gas control valve which is held open by electrical power
supplied by a pilot generator and which closes automatically
to shut off the flow of gas to the main burner when the pilot
flame is extinguished or becomes too small to light the main
burner.
Pilot Shield
A formed sheet metal piece that fits around the pilot
assembly to protect the the pilot flame against drafts.
Pilot Tube
Formed copper tube used to convey gas from the safety
control valve to the pilot light orifice. The tube is internally
“tinned” when natural gas is used to resist the effects of
sulphur in the fuel.
Regulator
The heart of any gas supply installation. Used to deliver a
working pressure to the appliance under varying conditions
in tank pressure.
Thermocouple
A thermoelectric device that converts heat energy directly
into electrical energy. Works in conjunction with the
electromagnet in the gas control valve thereby providing gas
supply for the pilot light.
Thermostat
Electrical device used as an automatic “on/off” switch which
will respond to changes in temperature in a certain area.
Can be wired so contacts in the thermostat open or close on
temperature increase or decrease.
