Options and Accessories
The air filter assembly (P/N 2579375) is the only available option for the Nortec BP-Series blower pack.
To order it, please contact your Condair representative. There are no accessories for the Nortec BP.
4.4
Functional Description
The Nortec BP-Series blower pack consists of an electrically-driven fan, an optional air filter assembly,
a distributor assembly, a steam inlet, a thermostat assembly, a safety relay, fuse and a high/low speed
switch. The fan is controlled by the thermostat assembly and the high/low speed switch. Refer to Figure 3
on page 13.
When the Nortec BP is powered on, the safety relay closes and permits the humidifier to generate steam
when it receives a demand signal. The generated steam enters the Nortec BP through the steam adaptor into the distributor assembly. A normally-open contact in the thermostat assembly closes when the
temperature reaches approximately 140 °F (60 °C), at which time the fan starts. Air drawn through the
grill in the cover assembly then mixes with the steam and is dispersed into the room/facility through the
distributor assembly.
The high/low speed switch controls the speed of the fan, which is set to the specific humidification requirements of the room/facility. Once set, the switch setting should not be altered.
When the steam supply stops, the fan continues to run until the contact in the thermostat assembly
opens as its temperature drops down to approximately 122 °F (50 °C).
A security loop cable attached to the back of the Nortec BP prevents the humidifier from starting if the
safety interlock is disabled. A warning message "Blower pack not connected" is displayed on the humidifier.

Note 1: The drain line should have a minimum internal diameter of 1-1/4 in (30 mm), with a constant
downslope (minimum 1.2°) to the air gap funnel, and must not touch the sides or bottom of the funnel.
Use stainless steel or plastic pipe if using DI or RO water.
Note 2: The air gap funnel and trap should be located away from the control cabinet in the humidifier to
prevent any rising steam from damaging the electrical components in the cabinet.
Note 3: Condensate drain line should have a constant downslope (minimum 1.2°), with no restrictions.
It must have a trap with a height of 3.94 in (100 mm). The trap should be located a minimum of 12 in
(300 mm) below the Nortec BP /steam line. Also see note below.
Note 4: The steam line should be as short as possible – the maximum length varies depending on the
humidifier capacity and material used (refer to Table 2 on page 22). The steam line must have a constant slope (minimum upslope of 10° or minimum downslope of 2°), and have no restrictions in the line.
Steam lines must not merge except at the Nortec BP (and only through a Condair breakout adaptor). A
condensate line must also be installed just before the restriction. On long steam line runs, condensate
lines must be installed every 15 ft (4.5 m), and at the lowest point in the steam line. The condensate
lines must connect into full-size "Tee" connectors.
In addition, multiple Nortec BPs can also be used remotely with Nortec GS 450/600 and Nortec SE 1751050 humidifiers with the aid of breakout adaptors. Refer to Figure 5. Contact your Condair representative

installed and configured.
To install a remote-mounted Nortec BP refer to "Remote-Mounted Installation" on page 27.
5.3
Site Requirements
In preparation for installation of the Nortec BP, the following site requirements must be satisified. Report
any discrepancies to the site engineer.
Steam and Condensate Lines
The selected location for installation of the Nortec BP should allow proper routing of the steam and
condensate lines as described in "Best Practices for Steam and Condensate Line Installation" on page 20.
The length of the steam line should be kept as short as possible (refer to Table 2 on page 22) to
minimize heat loss through the steam line.
Mounting
The selected location for the humidifier and Nortec BP should meet the requirements described in
"Location and Clearances" on page 18.
The Nortec BP is designed for wall-mounting in protected interiors. The surface (wall, pillar, etc.) to
which the Nortec BP and humidifier are to be mounted must offer a sufficiently high load-bearing
capacity, and be suitable for the installation. Refer to "Size and Weight" on page 49.
The Nortec BP-Series blower pack must only be installed and operated in a drip-proof location within
buildings, where the permissible ambient temperature and humidity conditions are maintained. Refer
to "Operating Data" on page 49 for details.
The Nortec BP-Series blower pack should not be mounted on hot or very cold surfaces, or near
vibrating components, or on the floor.
The Nortec BP-Series blower pack should not be used as a ducted blower. The air volume from the
Nortec BP is not sufficient for proper operation in a ducted system.
Power Supply
The available voltage and phase of the power supply should match the requirements for the
Nortec BP-Series blower pack, as indicated on the specification label. Refer to Figure 2 on page 12.
5.3.1
Location and Clearances
The installation of the Nortec BP-Series blower pack depends largely on the location of the humidifier
as well as clearances required to ensure steam does not come in contact with any surfaces before it is
absorbed into the air. Refer to Figure 6 on page 19 and Table 1 on page 19 for Nortec BP minimum clearance requirements.
The clearance dimensions shown are for reference only, and are the minimums required for the proper
functioning of the equipment. Consult local and national installation codes. Condair does not accept
responsibility for violations of installation codes.

Best Practices for Steam and Condensate Line Installation
Before proceeding with installation, Condair recommends that you familiarize yourself with the best practices
for installing atmospheric steam lines and condensate lines described below. Refer to Figure 7 on page 24.
Steam Lines
–
Use rigid steam pipes made of copper or stainless steel (minimum DIN 1.4301) exclusively, and use
steam hoses for short distances only. Refer to Table 2 on page 22 for details. Use original steam and
condensate hoses from your Condair representative. Steam and condensate lines made of any other
materials may adversely affect the operation of the unit, and will void the warranty.
WARNING!
Excessive backpressure can result in serious injury or damage to equipment!
Excessive backpressure in the steam line may affect the proper functioning of the humidifier,
and may also cause unexpected release of hot steam vapors. Bare skin exposed to the hot
steam vapors can result in severe burns.
Prevention: Minimize the length of the steam line and the number of bends, as the backpressure
can rise approximately 0.12 in H2O for every foot (100 Pa for every meter) of steam line, and
every 90° elbow.
–
The length of the steam line should be kept as short as possible. It should not exceed the maximum
equivalent length shown in Table 2 on page 22. Exceeding the maximum length can affect performance
of the unit and may void the warranty.
–
Note: With oversized steam lines the maximum length can be extended. Use a Condair steam hose
for short distances only.
IMPORTANT! When determining the length and routing of steam lines, allowances must be
made for thermal expansion. If a steam hose is used, allowances must be made for shrinkage
in the length of the hose due to aging.
20
Installation
–
The inside diameter of the steam line must match the diameter of the steam adaptor on the humidifier.
–
Use long radius elbows for steam pipes – the minimum bend radius is 5× the internal diameter.
Steam hoses should have a minimum bend radius of 12 in (300 mm).
–
Do not decrease the diameter of the steam line, as it increases the backpressure in the line and condensation of the steam. If necessary, increase the diameter of the steam line on the downslope, and
install a condensate line at the lowest point. Once expanded, a reduction in diameter is not permitted
except at the Nortec BP Install a Condair steam line reducer at the connection to the Nortec BP, and
install a condensate line just before the restriction. Contact your Condair representative for details
of the reducer.
–
If using Nortec BP-Series blower packs with large humidifiers (with dual steam cylinders), do not
connect the output from both steam cylinder to a single Nortec BP. Each Nortec BP has a maximum
capacity of 100 lb/h (45 kg/h).
–
For Nortec GS/SE humidifiers use a breakout adaptor to distribute the stream to more than one
Nortec BP – refer to Figure 5 on page 17. For details of steam lines for Nortec GS/SE humidifier
models contact your Condair representative.
–
The steam line from the humidifier must lead straight upwards for a minimum of 12 in (300 mm)
before continuing to the Nortec BP. The steam line must have a constant slope (minimum upslope
of 10° or minimum downslope of 2°), and have no restrictions in the line.
–
Rigid steam pipes can be connected to the Nortec BP and the humidifier by means of short lengths
of steam hoses and secured with hose clamps. If using a steam hose, it must be secured to the
Nortec BP and the humidifier steam outlet with hose clamps.
2582277_F_2008_Nortec_BP_IOM
Nortec BP
CAUTION!
Do not over-tighten the hose clamp. The maximum torque for 1-3/4 in (45 mm) gear clamps is
16 in·lbs (180 N·cm).
–
To minimize formation of condensation and maximize efficiency, steam lines made of rigid pipes
(copper or stainless steel) must be insulated with a minimum of 1 in (25 mm) of pipe insulation over
its entire length.
–
The weight of the steam line must be supported so there is no load on the humidifier.
WARNING!
Risk of severe burns from contact with hot steam vapours!
Restrictions in the cross-section of the steam line will cause excessive backpressure in the
steam cylinder when the unit is operating, which may cause unexpected release of hot steam
vapors. Bare skin exposed to the hot steam vapours can result in severe burns.
Prevention: Observe the following:
Nortec BP
•
Upon completion of the installation, purge the steam line to remove any contaminants and
installation materials.
•
If using a steam hose make sure there are no kinks in the hose. A heated hose is more likely
to kink.
•
To prevent condensate pockets, the steam line must not sag. If necessary, support the steam
line with pipe clamps, trough, or wall brackets, and install a condensate drain at the lowest

Condensate Lines
–
Use a 3/8 in (9.5 mm) condensate hose, or 3/8 in (9.5 mm) stainless steel pipe or 1/4 in (6.5 mm)
copper pipe for condensate lines and traps.
WARNING!
Risk of severe burns from contact with hot fluids or steam!
The condensate lines may be filled with hot fluids or steam. Bare skin in contact with hot fluids
or steam can result in severe burns.
Prevention: Never plumb the condensate lines to empty into a sink used by personnel. Always
connect the lines to a drain according to applicable national and local plumbing codes.
–
The condensate drain line from the Nortec BP must have a constant minimum downslope of 1.2°,
with a trap height of 3.94 in (100 mm). It may be connected to the fill cup port on the top of the humidifier or to the building floor drain with condensate cooler, as required. The condensate trap must
be at least 12 in (300 mm) below the condensate port on the Nortec BP.
–
Condensate lines must also be installed at all low points, and at horizontal-to-vertical transitions in
the steam line. The condensate drain lines should always connect to full-size "Tee" connectors in
the steam line and have a minimum downslope of 1.2°. Install full-size "Tee" connectors for condensate drain lines at all horizontal-to-vertical transitions. The condensate trap must be at least 12 in
(300 mm) below the "Tee" connectors.
–
For a steam line that is longer than 15 ft (4.5 m) up to the maximum recommended length, install
condensate lines and traps at regular intervals. The maximum distance between the condensate
lines is 15 ft (4.5 m).
–
Make sure that the condensate lines allow proper flow.
–
Do not over-tighten the hose clamps on the condensate lines.
IMPORTANT! Before starting up the humidifier, prime the condensate traps with water.

7.2
Starting and Stopping
When the humidifier and Nortec BP-Series blower pack are powered on, the contact in the Nortec BP
safety relay closes, which allows the humidifier to produce steam when there is a demand for humidity.
Note: If the safety relay is open, or the security loop cable (wiring provided by others) is disconnected
the humidifier will not generate steam.
As steam enters the Nortec BP-Series blower pack the contact in the thermostat assembly closes, at
which time the fan starts.
When the demand for steam is satisfied, the humidifier stops producing steam. The fan continues to run
until the thermostat assembly cools down, at which time the contact in the thermostat assembly opens
and the fan stops.
