Protection for the solar heating system.
The figure shows a cut-away view of the appliance.
In this appliance, the cold water enters the bottom of the tank through the cold
water inlet (14).
Once the appliance and the storage reservoir are completely filled with water,
they are both constantly under mains water pressure. When hot water is drawn
from the appliance, it is immediately replenished with hot water from the storage
tank, which in turn is replenished with cold water. The water in the storage tank
is heated by a heat exchanger which is connected to the solar heating system.
The appliance is equipped with a gas/air premix burner (17). The air is drawn in
through the fan (18). The gas is supplied via the gas control (16) on the intake
side of the fan. The gas/air mixture is then blown into the burner. The modulated
supply of gas and air ensures that the optimum gas/air mixture is always
achieved.
A gas-fired heat exchanger (11) in the appliance heats the tap water further if
necessary. The air required by the latter for combustion is forced into the burner
(17) by the fan (18).
The heated tap water leaves the tank through the hot water outlet (2). Once the
appliance is completely filled with water, it will constantly be under mains water
pressure. When hot water is drawn from the appliance, it is immediately
replenished with cold water.
The gas is fed to the burner via the gas control (16). The modulated supply of
gas and air ensures that the optimum gas/air mixture is always achieved. The
special construction of the burner causes the mixture to form a vortex (cyclone
effect) before it becomes ignited. This vorticity improves the ignition on the hot
surface igniter (20), as well as ensuring optimum combustion efficiency. The
special design of the heat exchanger (11) ensures that the flue gases are first
led downwards via the combustion chamber, then upwards via the heat
exchanger, and downwards again alongside the water in the tank. The flue
gases gradually become cooler in the process. Because the cooled flue gases
flow alongside the cold water lower down in the tank, they start to condense.
This condensation causes latent heat energy to be transferred to the cooler
water, thereby increasing the performance of the unit. The condensate yielded
by this process is discharged via the siphon (23).
Heat losses are prevented by the insulating layer (24) in both the storage tank
and the appliance itself. Both are enamel-coated on the inside to protect against
corrosion. The anodes (9) provide extra protection against corrosion. Both are
fitted with an inspection and cleaning opening (12) for maintenance purposes.

IMD-0219 R2
The net water temperature (Tnet) in the appliance is used to regulate when both
the gas burner and the solar heating system are started and stopped. Tnet is the
curve shown in the figure. The controller uses two measured values to calculate
this temperature: T1 (7) and T2 (13). In addition, temperatures S1, S2 and S3
are used by the controller of the solar heating system. S1 is measured in the
solar collector. S2 is located between the inlet and outlet of the heat exchanger
of the storage tank. S3 is measured at the top side of the storage tank.
Depending on whether or not hot water is being drawn off, hot water can be
pumped from the storage tank to the appliance. This happens when S3 is 5 oC
higher than Tnet. Water is then pumped from the appliance to the storage tank,
causing hot water to flow from the storage tank into the appliance. The pump
switches off as soon as S3 equals Tnet.
The other settings that govern the control behaviour are:
•
14
Tset
Tset is the the required water temperature that has been set on the
appliance (11.4.1 "Setting the water temperature via the SET POINT
MENU"). As soon as Tnet falls below Tset, the water heating via the solar
heating system is started, however, only if the temperature of the heating
Instruction manual SGS
gis
fluid (S1) is a certain (adjustable) value higher than the temperature
measured at the appliance (sensor S2). As soon as (Tnet = Tset = Tsolar limit),
heating via the solar heating system is stopped. There is one exception to
this rule, and that is when Tsolar limit is set to a higher value than Tset.
•
Hysteresis
The moment Tnet falls below (Tset - Tsolar diff - Hysteresis), the controller
registers such a heat demand that the gas burner and the solar heating
system jointly heat the water. The solar heating system is only employed
when the temperature measured by S1 is a certain (adjustable) value grater
than that of S2.
•
Tsolar diff
When Tnet exceeds (Tset - Tsolar diff), the gas burner is shut off and the water
is heated exclusively by the solar heating system. When Tnet rises above
Tset (provided Tset = Tsolar limit), the solar heating system switches off. The
value of Tsolar diff is adjustable (12.8.5 "Setting the solar difference").
•

Gas valve
The electronic controller opens the gas valve so that gas can be supplied to the
burner. As a safety measure, the gas valve has a double shut-off. The double
shut-off guarantees complete isolation of the appliance from the gas supply.
To help ensure smooth ignition, the gas valve opens gradually ('softlite").
2.4.5
Fan
The fan (18) provides an optimum air supply when there is a heat demand. As
a safety feature, the fan ensures that any gases present in the combustion
chamber are removed, both before and after combustion. We refer to this as
pre- and post-purge.
The fan speed is continuously monitored by the electronic controller (4). The
electronic controller takes control if the speed of rotation varies too much from
the set value.

Pressure switch
The pressure switch ensures the discharge of flue gases and the supply of
incoming air during the pre-purge and normal running of the appliance. The
default state of the pressure switch is open. When sufficient pressure difference
is reached, the pressure switch closes. However, in the event of a fault, the
pressure switch is tripped open, and the heating cycle is interrupted. The table
shows the trip point per appliance.
Note
The trip point of the pressure switch is not adjustable.

Flame probe
To ensure that no gas can flow when there is no combustion, the water heater is
fitted with a flame probe (21). The electronic controller uses this probe to detect the
presence of a flame, by means of ionisation detection. The electronic controller
closes the gas control the instant it detects that there is a gas flow but no flame.
2.5
Safety of the
installation
In addition to the appliance's standard built-in safety monitoring, the appliance
must also be protected by an expansion vessel, expansion valve, pressure
reducing valve, non-return valve and a T&P valve.
The use of an expansion vessel, expansion valve and/or pressure reducing
valve depends on the type of installation: unvented or vented.
2.5.1
Unvented installation
With an unvented installation, an expansion valve valve and expansion vessel
prevent the buildup of excessive pressure in the tank. This prevents damage
being caused to the enamelled coating (in the appliance) or to the tank. A nonreturn valve prevents excessive pressure buildup in the water supply system.
This valve also prevents water from flowing backwards from the tank into the
cold water supply system. The pressure reducing valve protects the installation
against an excessively high water supply pressure (> 8 bar). These components
are fitted to the cold water pipe (3.6 "Water connections, Vented").
2.5.2
Vented installation
With a vented installation, excess pressure is taken up by the open cold water
head tank. The height of the head tank determines the working pressure in the
water heater, which may not exceed 8 bar. The installation must also be fitted
with a vent pipe from the hot water pipe, that opens into the cold water tank.
Ideally, the vent pipe should discharge into a separate tundish/drain or
otherwise to the open cold water head tank. The water heater should also be
fitted on the hot water side with a stop valve (3.7.2 "Hot water side").
2.5.3
T&P valve
A T&P valve is only mandatory in an unvented installation. However, A.O. Smith
also recommends the use of a T&P valve in vented installations.
A T&P (Temperature and Pressure Relief) valve monitors the pressure in the
tank and the water temperature at the top of the tank. If the pressure in the tank
becomes excessive (> 10 bar) or the water temperature is too high (> 97°C), the
valve will open. The hot water can now flow out of the tank. Because the
Instruction manual SGS
17
2
Working principle of the appliance
gis
appliance is under water supply pressure, cold water will automatically flow into
the tank. The valve remains open until the unsafe situation has been rectified.
The appliance is fitted standard with a connecting point for a T&P
valve (3.7.2 "Hot water side").
2.5.4
Protection for the solar heating system
Drain-back tank
The solar heating system may optionally be equipped with a drain-back tank.
The tank fills itself with the heating fluid when there is no heat demand. This
avoids overheating of the solar heating system. The high insulation factor of the
tank also protects the system from freezing of the fluid. The use of the drainback tank also serves to extend the useful life of the fluid.
The presence of a drain-back tank is set (12.8.1 "Setting the drain-back tank")
during the installation. Refer to the solar heating system manual for more
details.
Fluid temperature
The heat exchanger of the solar heating system may be filled with glycol. If the
temperature of the heating fluid is too high, a signal is sent to the controller of
the solar collector and the pump of the solar collector is switched off. This signal
is passed to the controller by temperature sensor S1.
At present, no heating fluids other than glycol are supported. The heating fluid
type is set (12.8.2 "Setting the heating fluid type in the solar heating system")
during installation.

error mode. The error is also visible on the
display of the SGS appliance
Safety of the solar heating system
Expansion vessel
The solar heating system must be equipped with an expansion vessel (16). An
expansion vessel serves to limit pressure variations in the system. The
expansion vessel in the solar heating system can withstand a maximum
pressure of 6 bar. The supply pressure to the expansion vessel depends on the
static head of the system.
Besides the expansion vessel, the system is protected from overpressure by an
expansion valve ( "Expansion valve").
Expansion valve
The solar heating system is equipped with an expansion valve (23). The
expansion valve monitors the pressure in the solar heating system. If the
pressure is excessive (> 6 bar), then the valve will open. The hot water can now
flow out of the installation. The valve remains open until the unsafe situation has
passed, i.e. until the pressure has fallen back below 6 bar.
Note
Because the installation is always under pressure and is not automatically
filled, the system will again need to be replenished (5 "Filling").

1) Parallel systems with diameter of 130mm or 150mm. If the maximum total
length for a diameter of 130mm is insufficient, 150mm diameter should be
used. Any diameter enlargement must be carried out on both air supply and
flue gas discharge.
You must use the longest pipe when calculating the pipe length. For example, if
the chimney pipe is 35 metres and the air supply pipe is 32 metres, then 35
metres should be taken as the length for calculation. Next, add the Lequivalent for
every 90° and 45° bend to this 35 metres, in both the air supply and flue gas
discharge. The following practical example illustrates how to use the table.
Practical example of parallel flue gas discharge
Example
The figure shows a SGS 100 installation. This has to be fitted with a 35m parallel
pipe 130mm in diameter plus eight 90° bends. We need to check whether this
configuration complies with the requirements stated in the table.
Appliance with parallel flue gas discharge material
The longest pipe must be used to check the maximum length. In this case, the
chimney pipe is the longest. This is 35 metres. This 35 metres is the sum of pipe
sections 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. The length of the transition piece can be ignored. The
total number of bends used in the flue gas discharge and air supply is 8. The
bend in the transition piece can be ignored. According to the table, 2.4 metres
per bend must be added. This brings the total pipe length to:
(2.4 x 8) + 35 = 19.2 + 35 = 54.2m.
This is less than the maximum length of 60 metres stated in the table. The
installation therefore fulfils the requirements.

INTERNAL CHECK
The appliance's heating cycle
The appliance's heating cycle is activated as soon as
the measured water temperature (Tnet) falls below the
threshold value (Tset). This threshold value depends
on the currently selected appliance operating mode.
For example, if the appliance is in "OFF mode" (frost
protection), then this value is 5°C. If the appliance is in
"ON mode", then this threshold value is selectable, for
example, 65°C.
The heating cycle runs in turn through the following
states:

The solar limit temperature is the maximum water
temperature obtained in the appliance via the solar
heating system (measured by sensor T1).
This value can be set between 65 ... 80 °C. The default
value is 65 °C.
If you set the solar limit higher than the set
point (11.4 "Setting the water temperature"), then
once the set point is reached, the solar pump will be
started to heat the water further. However, this only
makes sense if the solar heating system is actually
generating heat. This makes use of the difference
between the temperature at the top of the solar
collector (S1) and that in the appliance (measured by
S2). This value is also adjustable (12.8.3 "Setting
threshold temperature of pump in solar heating
system").
Call up the menu for the solar limit as follows:
12.8.3
Setting threshold temperature of

The pump of the solar heating system is switched on
when the difference (9.3 "The appliance's heating

14.1 Introduction
Maintenance
frequency
A service should be carried out at least once a year, both on the water side and
on the gas side. Maintenance frequency depends, among other things, on the
water quality, the average burning time per day and the set water temperature.
Note
Regular maintenance extends the service life of the appliance.
To determine the correct maintenance frequency, it is recommended to arrange
for the service and maintenance engineer to check the appliance on both the
water and gas side, three months after installation. Based on this check, the
best maintenance frequency can be determined.
14.2 Determining service
interval
To aid servicing, the electronic controller has a service interval with which the
service and maintenance engineer can determine the frequency of
maintenance, based on the number of burning hours.
The service interval can be set to: 500, 1000 or 1500 burning hours. The
standard setting is 500 burning hours.
Example
In the first three months, the appliance has burnt 300 hours. During
maintenance, it is evident that one service per year will be sufficient. Therefore,
after one year, some 1200 burning hours will have elapsed. The first value below
1200 hours that can be selected is 1000 burning hours.
In this case, the service and maintenance engineer sets the interval to 1000.
In the first three months, the appliance has burned for 300 hours. During
maintenance, it is evident (perhaps due to the water quality) that service will be
required at least once every 6 months.
Therefore, after six months, some 600 burning hours will have elapsed. The first
value below 600 hours that can be selected is 500 burning hours.
In this case, the service and maintenance engineer sets the interval to 500.

15.1 Introduction
Performing
maintenance
Caution
Maintenance may only by carried out by an approved service and
maintenance engineer.
At each service, the appliance undergoes maintenance on both the water side
and the gas side. The maintenance must be carried out in the following order.
1. Preparation for maintenance
2. Water-side maintenance
3. Gas-side maintenance
4. Solar collector maintenance
5. Finalizing maintenance
Note
Before ordering spare parts, it is important to write down the appliance type
and model, and the full serial number of the appliance. These details can be
found on the rating plate. Only by ordering with this information can you be sure
to receive the correct spare parts.

heating cycle").
10. If you have adjusted Tset , return it to the desired value (11.4 "Setting the
water temperature").
11. Remove the plastic cover on the top of the appliance.
12. Check the supply and burner pressure (3.13 "Checking the supply pressure
and burner pressure"), and adjust them if necessary.
13. Check that all components of the chimney flue system are properly attached.
14. Check the pressure differential across the orifice plate of the pressure switch
(see the table). If the pressure difference is too low, the heat exchanger must
be cleaned (15.4.4 "Cleaning the heat exchanger").

15.3 Water-side
maintenance
15.3.1
Introduction
The following steps must be carried out on the water side:
1. Checking the anodes.
2. Descaling and cleaning the appliance and storage tank.
3. Cleaning condensation water discharge.
15.3.2
Checking the anodes
Timely replacement of the anodes extends the service life of the appliance and
storage tank. The appliance's anodes must be replaced as soon as they are
60% or more consumed (take this into consideration when determining the
maintenance frequency).
1. Loosen the anodes using suitable tools.
2. Check the anodes, and if necessary, replace them.
15.3.3
Descaling and cleaning the appliance and storage tank
Scale and lime buildup prevent effective conduction of the heat to the water.
Periodic cleaning and descaling prevents buildup of these deposits. This
increases the service life of the appliance, and also improves the heating
process.
Take the rate of scale formation into account when deciding on maintenance
frequency. Scale formation depends on the local water composition, the water
consumption and the water temperature setting. A water temperature setting of
maximum 60°C is recommended for prevention of excessive scale buildup.
To guarantee a good, watertight seal around the cleaning opening, replace the
gasket, washers, bolts and, if necessary, the lid with new parts before
reassembly (see the figure). A special set is obtainable from the
supplier/manufacturer.
To simplify descaling and cleaning of the appliance and storage tank, both are
equipped with a cleaning opening.
