those suffering from heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, or not in good health must not use this
device unless otherwise directed by a physician. Also,
steambathing should be avoided while intoxicated.
B. Plumbing Rough-In:
I. Plumbing Installation:
The Heavy Commercial "HC" Steam Generator
requires the following connections: ½" NPT piping
for water inlet. ½" NPT brass or ¾" (I.D.) copper
tubing for steam outlet, and ¾" NPT safety valve
should be piped to an indirect waste line. A 1"
minimum indirect waste line must be installed for
the drain. This should be completed before the
walls are installed.Before connecting the water line
it is important to make sure the line is thoroughly
clean and free of foreign matter.
A. Plumbing Pre-Installation
1) Insure that the model steam generator unit
purchased is sized adequately for your steam
room.
IMPORTANT: Refer to the specification plate
affixed to the cabinet of the steam bath generator.
2) Allow sufficient room (40" x 40" x 30"H) for
access to the unit in the event service is
required. Do not keep flammable materials
such as gasoline, thinners, paints, etc. in the
same area as the steam generator.
1) Rough-in a water line from the cold water pipe.
Brass pipe or copper tubing is recommended. A
shut-off valve should be conveniently placed in
the water feed line.

2) Rough-in the steam line using ½" NPT brass
pipe or ¾" I.D. copper tubing. Do not use iron
pipe as it will rust and discolor wall of steam
room. For a steam line that is longer than 10
feet, an appropriate pipe insulation rated for a
minimum of 212°F must be used. The steam
head location should be approximately 12" to
18" above the steam room floor.
CAUTION: NO shut-off valve should be installed
on the steam line. Do not create traps or valleys
in this line which would trap condensation and
block the flow of steam. The steam pipe should
be pitched away from the steam head allowing
condensation to run back into the steam generator (Preferably) or pitched toward the steam
head.
escutcheon onto the steam pipe and screw the
steam head into place. Care must be taken not
to scratch the steam head or escutcheon with a

Automatic Blowdown and ON/OFF Time Clocks
IV. Auto Blowdown and Auto ON/OFF Time Clocks
(Optional)
NOTE: the drain line must be angled downward, allowing gravity to properly drain the
machine.
The "HC" steam generator, with an optional auto
blowdown system, will automatically purge the steam
boiler. Working in conjuction, the time clock and
electrically motorized valve, which allows blowdown
on boilers, prevents excessive mineral and scale
build-up.
2) Auto Blowdown (electrical)
All wiring is done at the factory so that no
special electrical wiring is necessary.
B. Operation
First decide the TIME OF DAY you require the
boiler to blowdown. It is recommended to select
a time while the boiler is in use, but under low
demand. For the best results program the timer
to blowdown every day of use for a period of 5
minutes.
A. Installation
1) Auto Blowdown Drain Valve (plumbing)
Attach the main blowdown drain valve to 1"
indirect drain (most local codes require a
blowdown tank). A strainer must not be used
with the valve.

Steam Generator Operation
The blowdown will begin with the timer "ON"
command and end with the timer "OFF" command (see Pages 12 and 13).
VI. Steam Generator Maintenance
A. Manual Blowdown (Only if NOT equipped with
Automatic Blowdown)
C. Setting Automatic ON/OFF Time Clock (Optional)
The boiler should be drained on a daily basis to
purge the vessel of mineral deposits and possible
scaling. For effective blowdown, the WATER, and
START switches must be placed in the OFF position.
The drain valve should be opened completely,
allowing the boiler water to exit through your drainage piping into an indirect drain. Now, place the
water solenoid switch in the ON position allowing the
system to flush through for approximately 5 minutes.
Close the drain valve and allow the boiler to fill with
water until the proper level has been reached. The
generator is again ready for use, place the START
switch in the ON position.
The steam generator will turn ON with the timer
"ON" command and OFF with the timer "OFF"
command (see Pages 12 and 13).
IMPORTANT: The Auto Blowdown Timer and Auto
ON/OFF Timer are two separate timers. If your steam
generator only has one timer, then only one of these
two options can be programmed. Check with the
installer to see which option has been purchased.
V. Steam Generator Operation
A. Place START, WATER SOLENOID, and STEAM
SOLENOID switches in the ON position. The Water
Solenoid Valve will open and the boiler will fill to its
proper level (about two-thirds of the site glass full)
and automatically shut-off.
B. Periodic Inspection
CAUTION: Disconnect all power to the boiler before
servicing. Service should be performed by a qualified
person.
B. When there is adequate water in the boiler the power
contactor will energize and the red power light
(located above the toggle switches) will illuminate
indicating that the boiler is heating up.
1) Check electrical connections periodically to
ensure that they are tight.
2) Remove Liquid Level Probe periodically to check
for deposits. Check that the bottom union and
pipe into boiler which attaches the water level
probe assembly is clean of deposits. If necessary, clean stainless steel probes and teflon
insulated tubing by removing all foreign matter.
This will ensure proper conductivity and operation of boiler.
NOTE: This boiler is equipped with a Solid State
Liquid Level Control System. Water level is maintained in the boiler, by a ground potential signal
between each stainless steel water level probe and
the boiler, and operates by sensing the electrical
resistance of water.
Both the water feed and low water cut-off functions
are regulated by a low voltage electrical signal that
activates the control relay(s), depending on the
water level within the boiler which, in turn, energizes
the water solenoid valve and/or power contactor.
3) Remove flange-type element to clean any scale
that might have built on sheath of heating
element. Be careful when cleaning heating
element not to deform the rods.
C. When adequate steam has been generated from the
boiler and the desired temperature reached in the
steam room the steam solenoid valve will close
when controlled by the ST-200C. The steam room is
now ready for use.
NOTE: When the steam solenoid valve closes the
red pilot light above the toggle switches will go out
only after steam pressure builds to approximately 8
to 10 PSI within the boiler.
D. With the ST-200C Temperature Control System
(Thermostat) set the dial to the desired temperature
(Dial Calibration: 1 to 10 setting for comfort level).
Refer to Section III for Operating Instructions.
E. If an Automatic ON/OFF Time Clock is provided, set
"the timer cycle" in order to operate.
