2. DESCRIPTION
Powermax 140 and 155x are combination boilers
in which the gas burner heats the contents of a
built-in thermal store. This heated water is used
as ‘primary’ water and circulated, as required, to
the radiators. Domestic hot water (‘secondary’
water) is heated by a heat exchanger and
delivered via a thermostatic blending valve which
prevents the hot water exceeding 60°C. The flow
rate is governed to a maximum of 12 litres per
minute (140) and 18 litres per min (155x.
A fully pre-mixed burner is used to ensure that
the gas is burned cleanly and efficiently. Ignition
is fully automatic and the ignition controller
incorporates a flame safety device.
A small diameter twin pipe flue system has been
designed for a length of up to 9.0 metres
(including a balanced flue terminal) through which
to draw inlet air and expel exhaust gases.
The standard terminal suits a wall thickness of
200mm to 500mm.
Operation
The appliance thermostat maintains the thermal
store at about 80°C and this stored water is
circulated through radiators via a pump inside the
casing.
A cold start thermostat prevents the pump from
operating until working temperature (approx.
60°C) is attained.
For summer operation the central heating can be
switched off by the user.
CP models come fitted with both CH pump and
an electronic 7-day, 3-event programmer.
Provision is made for fitting both room and frost
thermostats if required.
Installation of Sealed System models only may
fall within the scope of the Building Regulations
1992 (Part G). These require that installation of
an ‘unvented’ system shall only be carried out by
a competent person as defined in the Approved
Document G3. The above requirements do not
apply to a Powermax installed as part of an open
vented system.
Handling and Storage
Take particular care to avoid damaging outer
panels, switches, programmer etc. Trucking must
be done from the rear.
Store the appliance under cover in dry conditions.

5. SITING THE APPLIANCE
FLUE
General
AIR VENT
The appliance must be installed on a flat floor capable of
supporting the weight of the unit when ful l of water – up to
185kg. It should be sited to minimise the length of flue and to
avoid long hot water pipe runs.
The extended flueing capability enables the appliance to be
sited well away from an outside wall, thus installation in a first
floor cupboard or compartment, basement, utility room or
kitchen are all feasible locations. The appliance must not be
sited outside or in any outhouse where it could be exposed to
the weather.
The location chosen must permit the provision of a satisfactory
external flue termination. The location must also provide
adequate space for servicing and air circulation.
If floor settlement is likely due to the weight of the appliance,
ensure that pipework design is able to accommodate this.

Flue Protection
When using an extended flue system it is essential to fit
protective ducting (such as that supplied in the extended flue
kits) in order to prevent direct contact with the hot flue pipe.
Compartment Installation
BLENDING VALVE
General requirements for cupboard/compartment installations,
including airing cupboards, are given in BS6798. Specific
requirements for Powermax installations are given below.
a
The compartment must be ventilated at high and low
level in accordance with BS5440:Part 2 and Section 7
of these instructions.
b
The compartment shall be a fixed rigid structure large
enough to allow it and the boiler to be inspected and
serviced. A minimum width between the door jambs of
550mm (21in) must be provided.
c
Internal surfaces should be non-combustible or lined
with non-combustible material. Examples of noncombustible materials having a fire resistance of not
less than 0.5 hour are plaster skimmed plasterboard,
and fireproof boarding. The floor need not be lined.
Doors or shelves made from combustible material, e.g.
wood must be at least 75mm from the front or top of
the boiler.
d
The door of an understairs cupboard shall have a
BS476:Part 8 fire resistance of not less than 0.5 hour;
and air vents must be direct to outside air.
e
The flue pipe must be protected by the ducting supplied
by Baxi UK or by another no less suitable noncombustible enclosure.
f
Householders should be discouraged from storing
clothes etc on the boiler itself. A removable shelf at
least 75mm above the boiler is acceptable.
DHW
COLD MAIN
3. NATURAL GAS SUPPLY
These boilers require a natural gas supply of 1.6 to 2.0 cubic
metres per hour. Gas supply pipework of not less than 22mm
diameter should be run to the appliance and to within 300mm of
the gas valve (gascock) and should be installed in
accordance with BS6891:1988. (i.e. The pressure drop
between meter and appliance not to exceed 1mbar).
The gas connection to the appliance is Rp1/2 (1/2 in B.S.P.) Entry
holes are provided through the controls chassis.
The complete installation must be tested for soundness and
purged as described in the above standard and in accordance
with Corgi recommendations.
4. ELECTRIC SUPPLY
The appliance requires a 230V ~ 50Hz single phase 3A fused
electrical supply which must be installed in accordance with the
current IEE Wiring Regulations and any Local Regulations
which apply. Detailed wiring instructions are given in Section 10.
Power consumption is approximately 140W for the appliance,
with the Central heating pump rated at an additional 40W to
88W depending upon pump speed.
WARNING : THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED
Note: This appliance may be installed in any room or internal
space, although particular attention is drawn to the
requirements of the current IEE Wiring Regulations, and in
Scotland, the electrical provisions of the Building Regulations
with respect to the installation of the appliance in a room or
internal space containing a bath or shower. Where a roomsealed appliance is installed in a room containing a bath or
shower, any electrical switch or appliance control, utilising
mains electricity should be so situated that it cannot be touched
by a person using the bath or shower.
Requirements for horizontal
balanced flue terminations
Detailed recommendations for flueing are given in
BS5440:Part 1. The following notes are intended to give general
guidance. The appliance must be installed so that the flue
terminal is exposed to the external air, preferably on a clear
expanse of wall. Acceptable positions are indicated in Fig.5.1.
Avoid positions where the terminal is adjacent to projections;
particularly immediately under a balcony, inside a re-entrant
position, or immediately adjacent to a drain pipe.
If the appliance is fitted under a ventilator or opening window,
the terminal must be at least 300mm (12in) from any part of the
window or ventilator, and in accordance with BS5440:Part 1.
3
Where the lowest part of the terminal is less than 2m (6ft) above
the level of any ground, balcony, flat roof or place to which
people have access, the terminal must be protected by a guard
of durable material. A Terminal Guard Kit is available as an
optional extra Part No. P210 from Baxi UK. The guard requires
a flat wall surface of approximately 450mm diameter,concentric
with the terminal assembly.
The exhaust flue pipe of the terminal must not be closer than
25mm(1in) to combustible material. Additional clearance must
be provided when passing the flue through timber walls.
Advice on gas installations in timber framed buildings is
contained in an IGE technical publication available from the
Institution of Gas Engineers, 21 Portland Place, London W1N 2AF.
Balanced Flue Terminal
Use Kit P260 for installations where the flue passes through the
wall immediately behind the appliance. The terminal is suitable
for a thickness of 200mm to 500mm as shown in Fig.6.1.
An 800mm wall liner P337 can be ordered separately.
Step-by-step instructions are given in Section 9.
Fig. 6.1
6
Flue Pipe Insulation
Lagging is recommended when the flue pipe exceeds 3m. The
insulation used must be non-combustible and suitable for
operating at temperatures up to 200°C. Class ‘O’ foil backed
glass wool or mineral wool insulation wrapped tightly around
the flue pipe will help to reduce pluming. It is not necessary to
insulate the air inlet pipes.

The maximum length of each air/flue pipe must not exceed 5m
(including a Horizontal BF Terminal) when the maximum of 4 air
pipe bends and 3 flue pipe bends is used – see Fig 6.3.
The pipes can leave the boiler horizontally to right or left, or
rearwards, or vertically upwards.
There is no minimum length.
If fewer bends are used between the appliance and the flue
terminal, the maximum length of straight pipe can be increased
if required – see table below.
6. FLUEING OPTIONS
Several flueing systems are available. ALL are ‘room sealed’
and a choice of terminals is offered:
1. Horizontal balanced flue terminal.
2. Vertical balanced flue terminal.
3. Ridge tile terminal (unbalanced)
4. Mini terminal balanced flue systems
All terminals can be sited up to 7.0m from the boiler. In some
circumstances, a horizontal terminal can be sited 9.0m from the
boiler – See below. Flue systems are supplied in kits, or
components can be ordered individually-see list in section 17.
Before starting an installation, check that the correct flue
kit has been supplied with the boiler.

Ridge Tile Terminal Fig. 6.5
Kit P242 allows the flue to terminate at an approved (gas vent)
Ridge Tile Terminal with combustion air being drawn from a
ventilated loft space or from a second ridge terminal. The inlet
terminal must be not less than 300mm above the top surface of
the ceiling insulation.The air inlet pipework must be at least
1.5m long and not less than half the flue length. Full fixing
instructions are supplied in each kit.
Additional components may be specified up to the maximum
indicated in the diagram and the table opposite.
Combustion air may be drawn from a ventilated roof space or
from a compartment or duct which is permanently ventilated
direct to outside air. The effective open area of the vent must
not be less than 160cm2 (25in2).
When combustion air is drawn from a roof space or
compartment or duct, that area must be effectively sealed from
the remainder of the dwelling. A tight fitting trap door or similar
is acceptable.
IMPORTANT Any flue pipework in a horizontal plane
MUST run downwards AWAY from the boiler by 5mm
per metre. To prevent water accumulation there must
be no sags or dips in the pipework.
Visible Pluming
The efficient operation of Powermax will naturally give rise to
condensation in the flue gases and pluming will be visible
during adverse atmospheric conditions. In installations with long
flue runs some condensate may be discharged from the
terminal. The terminal must, therefore, be sited to avoid
nuisance from either phenomenon.

TO THE APPLIANCE
Wiring must comply with the current IEE Wiring Regulations.
The supply cable must be 3-core 0.75sq.mm (24/0.2mm) to
BS6500 Table 16.
The supply must be of 230V ~ 50Hz. A 3A fused double pole
isolating switch may be used, having a minimum contact
separation of 3mm in both poles, providing it serves only the
boiler and its system controls. Alternatively a 3A 3 pin fused
plug may be used.
Wiring diagrams are shown in Fig 10.1 for standard model and
Fig 10.2 for model with built-in programmer. Note that the water
level switch is omitted on open vented models.

- green-yellow
of the user terminal
block. Ensure that the
cable is routed via the
N
L
anchorage and through
bushing in LH side panel. See Fig. 9.6. Trim all excess
length from main supply cable.
5.
If a combined clock thermostat is being used to control
the central heating, it should be of a type having voltage
free contacts. Remove link wire (terminals 27 and 28)
and connect the switched wire to terminal 28, feed wire
to terminal 27.
A permanent live is available at terminal L2 and
additional neutral at terminal N3 for supplying power to
the clock.

To provide time to control for models without the built-in
programmer, we recommend using the Powermax
‘Diadem’ analogue programmer kit P4230. To install
remove the slave plug – see Fig 12.2 – and replace with
the plug-and-lead supplied. Fixing instructions for the
‘Diadem’ programmer are supplied in the kit.
Alternatively choose a twin channel programmer that has
volt free contacts, as provided by programmers which
use the British Gas standard wall plate configuration and
a pumped/gravity option which should be set to “gravity”.
See Fig. 10.3. Power the programmer from terminal L2
and link to one side of the programmer’s hot water relay
contacts. Connect the switched hot water contact to
terminal 24. To wire the central heating channel, remove
link wire (terminals 27 and 28) and connect the
programmer’s CH relay contacts to terminals 27 and 28.
NB The appliance switch must be kept in the OFF
position otherwise the DHW remains permanently
switched on. The central heating switch should be ON to
obtain timed switching.
After completing the electrical connections, perform the
following electrical system safety checks:
A – EARTH CONTINUITY
B – POLARITY
C – RESISTANCE TO EARTH

Connect any external control cable to the terminal block
as indicated and described below – See Fig 10.4 – and
route via unused grommets on lower LH side of unit.
Note. The length of the conductors between the cord
anchorage and the terminals must be such that the
current carrying conductors become taut before the
earth conductor if the cable is tugged, ie the earth wire
must be longer than both the live and neutral when
connecting into the terminal block.

If a frost ‘stat is required, this should have voltage free
contacts and provide a single pole double outlet.
Connect as follows:
Frost ‘stat live to terminal L2
Output 1 to terminal 24
Output 2 to terminal 26
The Sopac-Jaeger TA 547-04 (Double Outlet) is a
suitable frost protection thermostat.

11 WATER SUPPLY
Fig. 11.1 Water connections
Mains Supply Requirements
It is essential that the mains water supply pressure and flow
availability are capable of meeting both the hot and cold water
services demand. The unit is capable of delivering up to 12
litres/min (140) or 18 litres/min (155x) of hot water. Where the
mains pressure is in excess of 6 bar, pressure reduction to
between 2 to 3 bar is recommended for splash free tap operation.
Unless consistently high mains pressures are available, it is
unlikely that a mains service pipe of less than 22mm OD
(copper) or 25mm OD (Blue MDPE) will provide an adequate
flow rate to the system. Powermax is not recommended for use
where the prevailing mains pressure is below 1.0 bar.
A full way isolating valve (e.g. gate valve or quarter-turn valve)
should be fitted in the supply before, but adjacent to, the unit.
It is recommended that a 22mm draw-off is provided from which
15mm or smaller pipes can then be used to supply hot water
services to individual terminations to give a balanced
distribution system.

Taps: Ensure that all terminal fittings will withstand mains
pressure.
Showers: Because of the draw-off profile, thermostatic shower
mixers are recommended to optimise performance; these must
be suitable for use at mains pressure. The Range ‘Showermax’
thermostatic shower kit is recommended for use with this boiler.
Where it is possible for a flexible shower handset to reach
below the bath spillover level, compliance with the Water
Byelaws is essential.
PLUMBING
NO-GO AREA
Open Vented Systems
When installing ‘OV’ variants of Powermax the thermal store
within the appliance must be supplied with primary water from a
low pressure source e.g. a feed and expansion (F&E) cistern.
The unit is suitable for a maximum working head of 10 metres
(33ft head). The minimum static head is 600mm.
The vent pipe connection is situated at the top of the unit.
A 22mm open vent pipe must rise continuously, unimpeded, to
above the feed and expansion cistern. The top rear panel is cut
away to enable the vent pipe to run on the wall behind the
appliance.
Note also that the F & E water level must be at least 1metre
above the highest point of the primary circulation system.
An unvalved feed and expansion pipe must be provided from
the F & E cistern and teed into the C.H. return near the boiler.
Use 22mm if plastics pipe is used or if head is less than 1m.
Use in Hard Water Areas
In areas where temporary hardness exceeds 200mg/L,
treatment of the mains water supplied to the appliance is
recommended to maintain its performance. The Powermax
electronic water conditioner P3237 is available factory fitted or
can be retro-fitted. Any scale reducer, or ion-exchange softener,
will be most effective when installed immediately upstream of
the boiler i.e. in the inlet pipework.
Good quality polyphosphate dosing devices can also inhibit
scaling but generally should not be fitted where heat could
impair their performance. Always follow the manufacturer’s
instructions.
Record the type of conditioner being used in
log book.
PRIMARY SYSTEM
FLOW AND RETURN CONNECTIONS
These are on the LH side of the unit; the flow is taken from
below the pump. Pipework can be run inside the casing but
must not prevent the removal of the flue collector sump –
see NO GO area in Fig. 11.1. See also the plumbing layout
Guide on page 23.
Fig. 11.2a
!" #$"%
&"!"&
PIPEWORK ABOVE BOILER
Where the boiler has pipework rising above it, a non-return
valve should be fitted, preferably in the flow where it will not
obstruct filling.
Air vents must be fitted at the highest positions on flow and
return pipes and at any point where air is likely to collect.
TRVs IN SYSTEM
When all radiators are fitted with Thermostatic Radiator Valves,
a bypass loop (manual or automatic) must be provided.
SOLDER FLUX
Use water soluble flux for making soldered capillary joints in the
primary circuit. Traditional grease-based flux must not be used.
10
System Flushing
Sealed Primary Systems
For optimum performance after installation, Powermax and its
associated central heating system should be flushed in
accordance with the guidelines given in BS7593: 1992 –
Treatment of water in domestic hot water systems. Full
instructions are supplied with proprietary cleansers sold for this
purpose.
To help prevent both radiator corrosion and the possibility of
noise inside te boiler, it is recommended that Inhibitor is used.
To ensure that the correct amount of inhibitor is used add the
volume of the Powermax thermal store to your radiator and
pipework calculations as shown. It should be used in
accordance with the guidelines in the above standard and the
inhibitor manufacturer’s instructions.
Suitable inhibitors and flushing agents are available from
BetzDearbom and Fernox. Instructions for use are supplied with
these products.
Once the system has been fully flushed, complete the relevant
section in
log book.
Only ‘SS’ variants can be installed with a sealed primary
system. The ‘SS’ prefix is recorded on the Data Badge and
external packaging.
‘Sealed System’ models have an air separation fitting at the
back of the boiler. This also houses the water level safety switch
and connects the pressure relief valve and automatic air vent.
The installer must fit an external expansion vessel of adequate
expansion capacity. As a general guide systems of up to 7-9
radiators will need an 18 litre vessel; a 12 litre vessel may be
satisfactory for 5 radiator systems. The table below indicates
the size of vessel required for systems of different water
capacities.

Fig. 11.3 Typical Discharge Pipe Arrangement
TUNDISH
An 18 litre expansion vessel part No P105 and wall bracket
P116 are normally supplied with sealed system boilers.
Connect the expansion vessel to the boiler central heating
return using a 15mm pipework spur, see Fig.11.2b. This spur
can also be used to connect a WRC approved filling loop.
Observe this sequence when installing loop: mains – stopvalve
– flexible hose – double check valve – boiler primary circuit.
NB: If the stopvalve is not in sight of the pressure gauge on the
Powermax, fit an additional gauge adjacent to the filling loop.
On ‘SS’ variants a pressure relief valve set at 3.0 bar is fitted at
the top of the thermal store. A 15mm pipe from the relief valve is
accessible at the front of the boiler. The tundish (supplied loose)
may be fitted within the casing or externally. The discharge pipe
from the tundish should be not less than 22mm diameter, and
must have a continuous fall to a visible and safe position.
See Fig 11.3.
Pipework from the tundish should fall vertically for 300mm and
then continue by continuous fall to a visible safe termination –
preferably below a fixed grating and above the water seal of a
trapped gulley. The tundish must be kept clear of electrical
devices.
Under normal working conditions no discharge will occur.
A multiple fault condition could cause a short discharge of
scalding water and steam. Adequate precautions should be
taken to prevent obstruction of the outlet and to minimise the
danger to persons (especially children) and property.
Section G3 of the Building Regulations Approved Document
should be consulted for full information.

Loosen cap on automatic air vent, check draincock is
closed and open isolating valves on CH pump.
Open stopvalve(s) and fill system with water to approx.
0.9 bar. Release air from radiators and pipework and run
cylinder up to temperature with CH off.
Bleed both heat exchanger and CH pumps.
Thoroughly check radiator valve connections, glands
and unions for leaks.
Set CH pump to speed 3, bleed every radiator and
pipework high points until all air or air/water mix is
removed.
Allow system to reach full temperature (boiler ‘stat
switches off) and note HOT system pressure. Check that
relief valve is not “passing” by observing tundish over
several minutes.(“Passing” is usually due to debris on
valve seat. Snapping valve shut several times will
normally cure this). After firing and checking, drain and
flush the system, refill as above adding inhibitor, and
check for leaks.
Again bleed every radiator etc. until all air or air/water
mix is removed and re check relief valve.
Check system final pressure equals HOT pressure noted
in f above. Top up pressure if necessary.
Adjust CH pump to correct speed for system. Remove

Green neon indicates the burner is operating.
Note: If the burner fails to light, the ignition sequence will be
automatically repeated until either the burner lights or a
safety LOCK-OUT condition is signalled by the red
neon. If red neon glows, switch to ‘O’ (OFF) at the
appliance on/off switch, WAIT TEN SECONDS
BEFORE SWITCHING ON AGAIN.
e
With the appliance operating check the green neon is stable.
Note: After first filling with cold water some noise may
occur within the combustion chamber as the flame
settles on the burner. This is normal and will disappear
after approximately one minute. It does not occur in
normal use.
f
Run boiler for 15-20 mins and transfer manometer tube
to outlet test nipple. Check burner pressure is
approximately 3.8 to 4.4 mbar (140) or 4.8 to 5.5 mbar
(155x). NB The longer the flue system the lower will be
the expected pressure. Record operating pressure in
log book. Very low values e.g. 3.0 mbar,
indicate an obstruction in the air supply; a high pressure
e.g. >6.0 mbar indicates a blockage in the flue pipe or
sump - see fault finder chart on page 12. Note that the
gas valve is factory pre-set and the burner pressure is
not directly adjustable. In case of difficulty consult The

the slider switch (accessible behind the switch
panel) to the right.
Press SELECT HW and SELECT CH buttons (repeat if
necessary) until the indicators align with either ALL DAY
or 24HR, Fig 12.5, and press SET button to align left
hand indicator with RUN.
On standard model move central heating switch to the ‘I’
(on) position, Fig 12.4.
Check that any connected room thermostat is calling for
heat.
Note that the central heating pump will not operate until
the storage cylinder contents have reached a
temperature of approximately 60°C. After filling with cold
water, this will normally take between 20 to 25 minutes.
Wait until the thermal store has reached its normal
temperature of approx 82°C (by temporarily switching
the central heating off again) before balancing the
radiators in the usual way to achieve a temperature drop
of 10° to 15°C.
Set the room thermostat or programmer according to the
manufacturer’s instructions. On programmer model
press SELECT CH button to align CH indicator with
AUTO and press SELECT HW button to align indicator
with ALL DAY.
With the thermal store fully heated, check DHW output
temperature is approximately 55-60°C using nearest tap
and a flowrate of approximately 5 l/min. Record inlet and

Routine Annual Servicing
To ensure safe, efficient operation of the appliance, it is
necessary to carry out routine servicing at regular intervals.
The frequency of servicing will depend upon the particular
installation conditions and the use to which the boiler is put.
IMPORTANT: Before commencing any servicing or
exchange of components, always turn off the gas supply
and isolate the electricity supply.
An annual inspection is recommended with servicing every
other year.
After completing any service work always test for gas
soundness.
To gain access to the boiler for servicing, remove front panel
and top cover as described in section 9 and fig 9.1.

Combustion testing
A combustion analysis test point is provided on the flue
collector (just above sump joint). The test point is a tapped hole
and is sealed by a special screw/washer assembly. Insert the
sampling probe by approximately 25 to 30mm until it touches
the inner gauze. This will enable an accurate reading to be
taken. For a correctly installed appliance typical values to be
expected are:CO
< 20ppm
CO2
8.8 - 9.6%
Levels significantly outside these limits should be investigated
and may indicate a defective component or faulty installation.
Ensure the test point is FULLY GASTIGHT. Do not substitute
any other screw for the special Powermax screw
(Part No. P690).

pipes. Visually inspect combustion chamber and pipes
for excess deposits (a small torch will be useful). If
cleaning is required, first remove sump – see step g.
Remove M6 screw that secures the retaining strap and
withdraw strap. Allow sump to drop vertically to floor
level but leave underneath boiler to collect deposits.
Heat exchanger tubes can now be cleaned using a
28mm (11/8") diameter brush. Remove sump ensuring it
is clear of gauze in flue collector. Vacuum away deposits
and clean sump prior to replacing.
Note: Apply similar care when replacing sump, ensuring
it is evenly retained. Check sump joint for soundness
using an electronic ‘sniffer’ whilst boiler is operating.
Check that boiler and its controls are functioning
correctly.
Remove HW mini expansion vessel and probe bladder
using a blunt instrument. Replace if deflated, Part No. P527.
Electrical safety testing
It may be necessary to carry out electrical test work to ensure
the safety of the appliance circuits after overhaul or as part of
an inspection programme. This should be carried out to latest
edition IEE regulations for Class 1 appliances with the flash test
set at 1500 volts.

Using a differential manometer connect the positive side
of the manometer to the gas valve outlet pressure
tapping and the negative side to the air pressure sense
line using a tee piece.
Start the boiler, ensure that the inlet pressure is
adequate, i.e. ~20 mbar and bring thermal store up to
working temperature (above 60°C). Read the
differential pressure across the micromanometer (ΔP).
If reading is outside the range _ 0.13 to _ 0.16 mbar,
carefully remove the servo governor cap and adjust the
value of ΔP to _ 0.13 (±.03) mbar (i.e. the gas pressure
is 0.13mbar less than the air sense pressure) .
Replace cap and tighten.
Re-connect sense line tubing to valve.
Check burner pressure is approximately 3.8 to 4.4 mbar
(140) or 4.8 to 5.5 mbar (155x). NB The longer the flue
system the lower will be the expected pressure. Very
low values e.g. 3.0 mbar, indicate an obstruction in the
air supply; a high pressure e.g. >6.0 mbar indicates a
blockage in the flue pipe or sump - see fault finder chart
on page 12. In case of difficulty, consult The Technical
Helpline 08706 049049.

17. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR EXTENDED BALANCED
FLUE SYSTEMS
Installing Terminal Assembly
Note: The flue terminal must be installed horizontally.
b
Mark the centre of the 140mm (51/2 inch) diameter hole
and core drill.
Note: If the wall is clad with a combustible material an
additional 25mm wide area must be removed around
liner.
Measure the wall thickness and cut the liner to this
length. Cut opposite end to lugs.
Fit the liner through the 140mm diameter hole, lugs
inside, and make good internal and external rendering.
The latter may be done with arm extended through liner.
Note: Ensure lugs are either vertical or horizontal and
avoid filling threads in lugs with mortar.
Mark wall thickness measurement on terminal air/flue
pipes using datum ‘A’ ‘A’ shown in Fig. 17.1. Fix liner
closure plate on to the pipes at this length using the
clamp attached. Avoid crushing pipes with clamp. If
either pipe requires cutting to length (eg to allow bends
to be fitted) do this now.
Push flue terminal assembly into liner. Secure terminal
by fixing plate to liner using the screws supplied.

Routeing of Air/Flue Pipes
a
Note: If air/flue pipes run horizontally leftwards, align
bends and fit the first pipe length to the left, before
securing clamp with 70mm long screw.
Move appliance to its final position. Note: Fixing the first
stage of the open vent pipe and F & E pipe is
recommended next (See section 11 of main instructions).
With appliance in position, determine length of
protective duct required and if necessary adjust
standard length to suit – See Fig 17.5. Fix duct to wall
with screws and plugs provided. Temporarily set aside
duct cover.
For flue and air pipes leaving the boiler vertically, refer to the
plan view in Fig. 17.7 (especially when planning to first fix the
extended pipes).
a
Measure distances of flue pipe runs and note as a guide
to cutting pipes. The maximum length of each air/flue
pipe run must not exceed 5.0m (including a Horizontal
BF Terminal) if the maximum of 4 air pipe bends and 3
flue pipe bends is used – see Fig.17.2. There is no
minimum length.
If fewer bends are used between the appliance and the
flue terminal, then the maximum length of straight pipe
can be increased if required – see table below.
Any exhaust flue pipe accessible to occupiers of the
dwelling must be covered with protective ducts – Part
No. P360 is suitable.
The flue terminal assembly and the (hot) exhaust
products flue pipe must not be closer than 25mm (1") to
combustible material. If the flue pipes are run through a
timber wall or cupboard, or via a roof space with
wooden rafters; ENSURE A 25mm GAP IS LEFT
AROUND THE EXHAUST FLUE PIPE; OR EXTEND
THE PROTECTIVE DUCT.

Preparing Appliance & Protective Duct
a
See Fig. 17.3. Slip a worm drive clip over both ends of
flexible inlet duct. Push one end of the duct over the
spigot on fan inlet and secure with clip.
If flue pipework leaves appliance vertically, remove 90°
elbow from flue pipe and engage plain end with flexible
duct. Secure with worm drive clip.
Insert flue pipe extension adaptor P338 into flue pipe
socket on boiler. Re-fit rear box (This can not be fitted
after vertical flue pipe has been fixed).
MAX. No OF BENDS (90° or 135°)
Flue Pipe Insulation
When the flue pipe length exceeds 3m, the flue should be
lagged. The insulation used must be non-combustible and
suitable for operating at temperatures up to 200°C. Class ‘O’
foil backed glass wool or mineral wool duct/pipe insulation
wrapped tightly around the flue pipe only will be satisfactory.

Measure and cut the first pair of flue pipes away from
the appliance (within duct). Smear a film of silicone
sealant (approx. 0.5mm thick) around mating surface of
pipes. Push pipes firmly into the sockets using a
twisting motion to spread sealant.
Measure and cut next pair of air/flue pipes. Slip pipe
supports along pipes as required before engaging pipes
with socket of preceding pipes or bends.
Smear a film of sealant (approx 0.5mm thick) around the
male pipe surfaces before pushing pipes firmly together.
Select the duct bend (if required) and insert pipe bends.
Push plain end of pipe bends into pipe sockets. Repeat
above procedure to reach terminal. Ensure that air inlet
and flue gas connections are correctly made as
indicated in Fig 17.1.
Fix pipe supports to masonry or woodwork so that flue
pipes are held securely in position.
Check especially that every joint within the duct is
thoroughly sealed before fitting the duct cover.

Use of excessive sealant within the
socket must be avoided. Otherwise
sealant may be pushed in front of the
pipe (especially one that is not
deburred) thus causing a restriction
in the air/flue pipework.
Experience has shown that an
effective technique is to smear
silicone sealant around the
OUTSIDE of a DEBURRED pipe end
which is then inserted into the socket
with a twisting action.
Restricting the flue or air supply can impair
the operation of the Powermax appliance
and invalidate the manufacturer’s warranty.
