RIELLO SC ACS 25 The SC ACS 25 is an instant domestic hot water mixer. It uses a brazed, stainless steel plate heat exchanger and is ideal for use in combination with DHW storage cylinders. Temperature of the hot water delivered to the taps is regulated by the thermostatic mixing of water in the primary circuit. The primary circuit pump is controlled by a flow switch in the DHW circuit, connected in series to the pump. The product is equipped with two filling/drain cocks. When the shut-off valves are closed, these can also be used to flush out the heat exchanger. A domestic hot water recirculation kit is available for further convenience. The SC ACS 25 instant hot water mixer comes complete with an insulated frame.

Also install a non-return valve and an expansion vessel along the domestic cold water supply. UNIT OF WATER PARAMETER MEASURE If the water supply is harder than 25 to 30 °Fr, a suitable treatment system should be installed upstream from the water heating system to prevent corrosion and the formation of limescale. PH Saturation index (PH delta) Total hardness Conductivity Solid substances Free chlorine Hydrogen sulphide Ammonia Bicarbonate Bicarbonate/Hydrogen sulphide Sulphur Nitrate Nitrite Sulphate Manganese Dissolved iron Free, aggressive carbon dioxide Bear in mind that, because of the low thermal conductivity of limescale, even deposits of only a couple of millimetres in thickness can significantly reduce the efficiency of the water heating system. The ACS 20 hot water mixer is made from materials that conform to the requirements of Ministerial Decree 174/2004 (Italy) implementing Council Directive 98/83/ EC. All fittings are assembled in the factory. It is nevertheless advisable to check their tightness after installing the product. It is also necessary to test the product for water tightness at operating pressure when putting it into service. bbValues in excess of those specified in the table alongside can damage the product and automatically invalidate the warranty. It is therefore important to analyse the water to ensure that all values are within the limits given in the table. 10 MAXIMUM PERMISSIBLE VALUE FOR COPPERBRAZED HEAT EXCHANGERS 7-9 (indicative of saturation) -0.2<0<+0.2 °Fr μS/cm mg/l mg/l mg/l mg/l mg/l 15-30 10…500 <30 <0.5 <0.05 <2 <300 mg/l >1.0 mg/l mg/l mg/l mg/l mg/l mg/l <1 <100 <0.1 <100 <0.1 <0.2 mg/l <20 ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS The following instructions are mandatory. 1 Use a multi-pole, magnetic thermal, earth leakage breaker and disconnector that conforms to legislation in the country of installation. 2 Respect the L (Phase) - N (Neutral) polarity. Keep the ground wire about 2 cm longer than the power wires. 3 Make sure the product is correctly connected to ground. aaIt is strictly forbidden to use water pipes to ground the product. aaDo not route the power cable near hot surfaces (like hot water pipes). Use a suitable class of cable if there is any bbThe manufacturer declines all responsibility for damage caused by failing to ground the product adequately or by failure to respect the wiring diagrams provided in this manual. PUTTING INTO SERVICE bbCAUTION! Completely fill the water circuit before Pos. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 putting the product into service. -- Check that the ring nuts of all the water fittings are tight. -- Fill the system and check it for water tightness. -- Open the cold water and hot water shut-off valves slowly in order to avoid pressure surges. -- Bleed the system as follows: -- Open a hot water tap near the product and unscrew the thermostat knob as far as it will go. -- Open the bleed screw on the pump upstream to bleed air from the storage cylinder side of the system. Continue until all the air has been bled from the system. -- Adjust the thermostat knob to the desired water temperature. t (*C) 35 40 45 50 55 60 65 DEFAULT SETTING ADJUSTMENT STOP 3 Default setting 1 2 bbAll fittings are assembled in the factory.
