Unvented Hot Water Cylinder

4. Description of the product

4.1 General description

This product is a purpose designed unvented water heater. The unit has a stainless steel inner vessel, which ensures an excellent standard of corrosion resistance. The outer casing is a combination of resilient thermoplastic mouldings and soft jacket. All products are insulated with CFC free polyurethane foam (GWP

3.1) to give good heat loss protection.

The unit is supplied complete with all the necessary safety and control devices needed to allow connection to the cold water mains. All these components are preset and should not be tampered with.

4.2 Operation principle

The unvented cylinder is used to heat and store hot water for use in commercial applications.

Depending on the model the water can be heated directly using an element (supplied separately) or indirectly through a coil in the unit using an external heat source e.g. Gas, Oil or Electric.

To provide pressure to the tap or shower an unvented unit uses the incoming mains water pressure. To do this the cylinder is sealed and not vented. However, when the volume of water is heated it expands and without any room for expansion could cause the cylinder to rupture and fail. To allow expansion of this heated water it is important that an expansion vessel is used.

This vessel is pressurised and gives the heated water room to expand.

5. Before installation

5.1 Installation regulations

WARNING

Installation of the appliance must be carried out by a qualified engineer in accordance with prevailing and national regulations as listed below.

`

Building Regulations G3

`

The Building Standards (Scotland)

`

The Building Regulations (Northern

Ireland)

`

I.E.E Electrical Regs

`

UK Water Regulations

5.2 Installation requirements

Water supply

In an unvented system the pressure and flowrate is directly related to the incoming water supply. For this reason it is recommended that the maximum water demand is assessed and the water supply checked to ensure this demand can be satisfactorily met.

`

We suggest the minimum supply requirements should be 0.15MPa (1.5 bar) pressure and 100 litres per minute flow rate. However, at these values outlet flow rates may be poor if several outlets are used simultaneously.

`

A 28mm cold water supply is recommended, however, if a smaller supply exists, which provides sufficient flow, this may be used (although more flow noise may be experienced).

`

The higher the available pressure and flow rate the better the system performance.

`

See table 1 & 2 on pages 5 & 6 for cylinder operating pressures. This is controlled by the cold water combination valve assembly.

` The water supply must be of wholesome water quality (Fluid Category 1 as defined by the Water

Supply Regulations 1999).

`

Outlet/terminal fittings (taps, etc.)

`

The cylinder can be used with most types of terminal fittings.

`

Outlets situated higher than the cylinder will give outlet pressures lower than that at the heater, a

10m height difference will result in a 1 bar pressure reduction at the outlet.

`

All fittings, pipework and connections must have a rated pressure of at least 8 bar (dependant on cylinder being fitted) at 80°C.

Limitations

The cylinder should not be used in association with any of the following:

`

Solid fuel boilers or any other boiler in which the energy input is not under effective thermostatic control, unless additional and appropriate safety measures are installed.

`

Ascending spray type bidets or any other class 1 back syphonage risk requiring that a type A air gap be employed.

`

Steam heating plants unless additional and appropriate safety devices are installed.

`

Situations where maintenance is likely to be neglected or safety devices tampered with.

`

Water supplies that have either inadequate pressure or where the supply may be intermittent.

`

Situations where it is not possible to safely pipe away any discharge from the safety valves.

`

In areas where the water consistently contains a high proportion of solids, e.g. suspended matter that could block the strainer, unless adequate filtration can be ensured.

`

In areas where the water supply contains chloride levels that exceed 250mg/l.

5.3 Choice of location

The cylinder must be vertically floor mounted. Although location is not critical, the following points should be considered:

`

The cylinder should be sited to ensure minimum dead leg distances, particularly to the point of most frequent use.

`

Avoid siting where extreme cold temperatures will be experienced. All exposed pipe work should be insulated.

`

The discharge pipework from the safety valves must have minimum fall of 1:200 from the unit and terminate in a safe and visible position.

`

Access to associated controls and immersion heaters must be available for the servicing and maintenance of the system. Where these controls are installed against a wall a minimum distance of

250mm must be left.

`

Ensure that the floor area for the cylinder is level and capable of permanently supporting the weight when full of water (see table 1 & 2, page 5 & 6 for weights).

5.4 Transport

Prior to installation the unit should be stored and transported in an area free from excessive damp or humidity. The unit should be stored in a frost free environment.

To aid installation, the water heater (800ltr upwards) is provided with lifting points located at the top of the unit.

To access the lifting eyes please remove the top cover.

6. Installation

6.1 General

After reading the previous sections in this booklet and choosing a good location for the unit please install, paying attention to the following hydraulic, electrical and commissioning sections.

Boiler selection

`

The boiler should have a control thermostat and non self-resetting thermal cut-out and be compatible with unvented storage water heaters.

`

Where use of a boiler without a thermal cut-out is unavoidable a “low head” open vented primary circuit should be used. The feed and expansion cistern head above the cylinder should not exceed

2.5m.

`

Can be a sealed system or open vented type - maximum primary pressure 3 bar (see Note 3 page

5).

`

The boiler cannot be vented through the cylinder.

6.2 Water connections

WARNING

`

Under no circumstances should the factory fitted temperature/pressure relief valve be removed other than by a competent person. To do so will invalidate any guarantee or claim.

`

The cold water combination valve assembly must be fitted on the mains water supply to the cylinder.

`

No control or safety valves should be tampered with or used for any other purpose.

`

The discharge pipe should not be blocked or used for any other purpose.

`

The tundish should not be located adjacent to any electrical components.

To hot outlets

T&P relief valve

Refer to the installation schematic (fig 13, below) for details on the pipework layout. Specific details for the discharge pipework layout is also provided in figure 16 on page 22.

`

All pipe fittings are made via BSP female pipe connections directly to the unit.

`

A stopcock or servicing valve should be incorporated into the cold water supply to enable the cylinder and its associated controls to be isolated and serviced

(not supplied).

`

The expansion vessel must be connected between the cold water combination valve and the cylinder.

`

The location of the expansion vessel should allow access to recharge the pressure as and when necessary.

`

A suitable draining tap should be installed in the cold water supply to the cylinder between the expansion valve and the heater at as low a level as possible.

`

It is recommended that the outlet point of the drain pipework be at least 1 metre below the level of the heater (this can be achieved by attaching a hose to the drain tap outlet spigot).

Cold water control pack

CAUTION

`

The expansion vessel pressure must be set in accordance with the inlet pressure set on the pressure reducing valve.

`

Flush supply pipework before connection to remove all flux and debris prior to fitting the inlet controls.

Failure to do this may result in irreparable damage to the controls and will invalidate any warranty.

`

The cold water control pack can be connected anywhere on the cold water cylinder supply prior to the expansion vessel.

`

The control pack incorporates the strainer, check valve, core unit and expansion relief valve.

`

The pressure reducing valve is factory set to 3.5 bar and should not be adjusted.

`

The valve can be fitted in any orientation to suit the installation as long as the valve is installed with the direction of flow arrows pointing in the correct direction.

`

The expansion relief valve should be installed with the discharge pipework in either the horizontal position or facing downwards.

`

No other valves should be placed between the cold water combination valve and the cylinder.

`

The blank plastic plugs in the body of the pressure relief valve are pressure gauge connections to enable pressure monitoring to be carried out, should the system develop a fault. It is recommended that these be accessible (the pressure reducing valve has two – only one need be accessible).

` Where discharge pipework is difficult to attain, the local building control officer from the local council should be sought for advice as this falls under G3 guidelines and is not down to the manufacturer for unvented systems.

Primary circuit control

`

The 2 port motorised valve supplied with the cylinder MUST be fitted on the primary flow to the cylinder heat exchanger and wired such that in the event of the cylinder overheating it will close the primary circuit.

`

Primary circulation to the cylinder heat exchanger must be pumped; gravity circulation WILL NOT

WORK.

`

It is recommended that an air bleed or automatic air vent is fitted to the highest point of the system.

`

Boiler flow temperature should be set to 82°

(maximum flow temperature to primary heat exchanger 89°C).

Secondary circulation

If secondary circulation is required it is recommended that it be connected to the cylinder as shown (see fig.

15, below).

`

The secondary return pipe should be in 28mm pipe and incorporate a check valve to prevent backflow.

`

A suitable WRAS approved circulation pump will be required.

`

On large systems, due to the increase in system water content, it may be necessary to fit an additional expansion vessel to the secondary circuit. This should be done if the capacity of the secondary circuit exceeds 10 litres.

In direct electric installations where a secondary circulation is required particular attention should be paid by the installer to maintain the returning water temperature (guidelines state that a minimum of 55°C return temperature is advisable). Factors such as, but not limited to, secondary circulation flow rates, minimising heat loss of all secondary circuit pipework and timed operation during periods of high demand are critical to the correct operation and longevity of the heating element(s) and thermostats.

Pipe capacity (copper):

15mm O.D. = 0.13 l/m (10 litres = 77m)

22mm O.D. = 0.38 l/m (10 litres = 26m)

28mm O.D. = 0.55 l/m (10 litres = 18m)

Note: Plastic pipe capacities may be reduced due to thicker wall sections.

Discharge

It is a requirement of Building Regulation G3 that any discharge from an unvented system is conveyed to where it is visible, but will not cause danger to persons in or about the building. The tundish and discharge pipes should be fitted in accordance with the requirements and guidance notes of Building Regulation G3. The G3

Requirements and Guidance section 3.50 - 3.63 are reproduced in the following sections of this manual.

For discharge pipe arrangements not covered by G3

Guidance advice should be sought from your local

Building Control Officer. Any discharge pipe connected to the pressure relief devices (expansion valve and temperature/pressure relief valve) must be installed in a continuously downward direction and in a frost free environment.

Water may drip from the discharge pipe of the pressure relief device. This pipe must be left open to the atmosphere. The pressure relief device is to be operated regularly to remove lime deposits and to verify that it is not blocked.

G3 REQUIREMENT

“...there shall be precautions...to ensure that the hot water discharged from safety devices is safely conveyed to where it is visible but will not cause danger to persons in or about the building.”

The following extract is taken from the latest G3

Regulations

Discharge pipes from safety devices

Discharge pipe D1

3.50 Each of the temperature relief valves or combined temperature and pressure relief valves specified in

3.13 or 3.17 should discharge either directly or by way of a manifold via a short length of metal pipe (D1) to a tundish.

3.51 The diameter of discharge pipe (D1) should be not less than the nominal outlet size of the temperature relief valve.

3.52 Where a manifold is used it should be sized to accept and discharge the total discharge from the discharge pipes connected to it.

3.53 Where valves other than the temperature and pressure relief valve from a single unvented hot water system discharge by way of the same manifold that is used by the safety devices, the manifold should be factory fitted as part of the hot water storage system unit or package.

Tundish

3.54 The tundish should be vertical, located in the same space as the unvented hot water storage system and be fitted as close as possible to, and lower than, the valve, with no more than 600mm of pipe between

Unvented Hot Water Cylinder

the valve outlet and the tundish (see fig 13).

Note: To comply with the Water Supply (Water Fittings)

Regulations, the tundish should incorporate a suitable air gap.

3.55 Any discharge should be visible at the tundish. In addition, where discharges from safety devices may not be apparent, e.g. in dwellings occupied by people with impaired vision or mobility, consideration should be given to the installation of a suitable safety device to warn when discharge takes place, e.g. electronically operated.

Discharge pipe D2

3.56 The discharge pipe (D2) from the tundish should:

(a) have a vertical section of pipe at least 300mm long below the tundish before any elbows or bends in the pipework (see fig. 13); and

(b) be installed with a continuous fall thereafter of at least 1 in 200.

3.57 The discharge pipe (D2) should be made of:

(a) metal; or

(b) other material that has been demonstrated to be capable of safely withstanding temperatures of the water discharged and is clearly and permanently marked to identify the product and performance standard (e.g. as specified in the relevant part of BS 7291).

3.58 The discharge pipe (D2) should be at least one pipe size larger than the nominal outlet size of the safety device unless its total equivalent hydraulic resistance exceeds that of a straight pipe 9m long, i.e. for discharge pipes between 9m and 18m the equivalent resistance length should be at least two sizes larger than the nominal outlet size of the safety device; between 18 and 27m at least 3 sizes larger, and so on; bends must be taken into account in calculating the flow resistance.

See Fig 13, Table 3 and the worked example.

Note: An alternative approach for sizing discharge pipes would be to follow Annex D, section D.2 of BS

6700:2006 Specification for design, installation, testing and maintenance of services supplying water for domestic use within buildings and their curtilages.

3.59 Where a single common discharge pipe serves more than one system, it should be at least one pipe size larger than the largest individual discharge pipe

(D2) to be connected.

3.60 The discharge pipe should not be connected to a soil discharge stack unless it can be demonstrated that the soil discharge stack is capable of safely withstanding temperatures of the water discharged, in which case, it should:

(a) contain a mechanical seal, not incorporating a water trap, which allows water into the branch pipe without allowing foul air from the drain to be ventilated through the tundish;

(b) be a separate branch pipe with no sanitary appliances connected to it;

(c) if plastic pipes are used as branch pipes carrying discharge from a safety device they should be either polybutylene (PB) to Class S of BS 7291-2:2006 or cross linked polyethylene (PE-X) to Class S of BS

7291-3:2006; and

(d) be continuously marked with a warning that no sanitary appliances should be connected to the pipe.

Note:

1. Plastic pipes should be joined and assembled with fittings appropriate to the circumstances in which they are used as set out in BS EN ISO 1043-1.

2. Where pipes cannot be connected to the stack it may be possible to route a dedicated pipe alongside or in close proximity to the discharge stack.

Termination of discharge pipe

3.61 The discharge pipe (D2) from the tundish should terminate in a safe place where there is no risk to persons in the vicinity of the discharge.

3.62 Examples of acceptable discharge arrangements are:

(a) to a trapped gully with the end of the pipe below a fixed grating and above the water seal;

(b) downward discharges at low level; i.e. up to

100mm above external surfaces such as car parks, hard standings, grassed areas etc. are acceptable providing that a wire cage or similar guard is positioned to prevent contact, whilst maintaining visibility; and

(c) discharges at high level: e.g. into a metal hopper and metal downpipe with the end of the discharge pipe clearly visible or onto a roof capable of withstanding high temperature discharges of water and 3m from any plastic guttering system that would collect such discharges.

3.63 The discharge would consist of high temperature water and steam. Asphalt, roofing felt and nonmetallic rainwater goods may be damaged by such discharges.

Worked example of discharge pipe sizing

Fig. 13: shows a G1/2 temperature relief valve with a discharge pipe (D2) having 4 No. elbows and length of

7m from the tundish to the point of discharge.

From Table 3:

Maximum resistance allowed for a straight length of

22mm copper discharge pipe (D2) from a G1/2 temperature relief valve is 9.0m.

Subtract the resistance for 4 No. 22mm elbows at 0.8m each = 3.2m

Therefore the permitted length equates to: 5.8m

5.8m is less than the actual length of 7m therefore calculate the next largest size.

Maximum resistance allowed for a straight length of

28mm pipe (D2) from a G1/2 temperature relief valves equates to 18m.

Subtract the resistance of 4 No. 28mm elbows at 1.0m each = 4.0m

Therefore the maximum permitted length equates to:

14m

As the actual length is 7m, a 28mm (D2) copper pipe will be satisfactory.

WARNING

DO NOT operate the immersion heaters or primary circuit until the cylinder has been filled with water.

`

WARNING: If the unit is to be left unused following installation and commissioning, e.g. unoccupied properties, the water heater should be drained or regularly flushed through with fresh mains water once a week.

`

When placing the unit into service, the procedure for filling the unit and the system checks above should be observed.

7.2 Checklist before commissioning

`

Check all water connections for leaks and rectify as necessary.

`

Turn off mains water supply.

`

Remove the pressure reducing valve head work to access the strainer mesh, clean and re-fit.

`

Turn the water supply back on.

`

Manually open, for a few seconds, each relief valve in turn, checking that water is discharged and runs freely through the tundish and out at the discharge point.

`

Ensure that the valve(s) reseat satisfactorily.

7.3 Commissioning procedure

Direct units

`

Switch on electrical supply to the immersion heater(s) and allow the cylinder to heat up to normal working temperature (65°C recommended).

`

If necessary the temperature can be adjusted by inserting a flat bladed screwdriver in the adjustment spindle on front of the immersion heater thermostat and rotating. The adjustment represents a temperature range of 15°C to 74°C.

`

Check the operation of thermostat(s) and that no water has issued from the expansion relief valve or temperature/pressure relief valve during the heating cycle.

Indirect units

`

Fill the indirect (primary) circuit following the boiler manufacturer’s commissioning instructions.

`

To ensure the cylinder primary heat exchanger is filled, the 2 port motorised valve (supplied) should be manually opened by moving the lever on the motor housing to the MANUAL setting. When the primary circuit is full return the lever to the

AUTOMATIC position.

`

Switch on the boiler, ensure the programmer is set to Hot Water and allow the cylinder to heat up to a normal working temperature 65 o

C (recommended).

8. Operation

8.1 General

WARNING

`

If water discharges from the temperature/pressure relief valve on the cylinder shut down the heat source.

Do not turn off any water supply. Contact a competent installer for unvented water heaters to check the system.

`

Do not tamper with any of the safety valves fitted to the system. If a fault is suspected contact a competent installer.

`

DO NOT bypass the thermal cut-out(s) in any circumstances.

Benchmark

The cylinder is covered by the Benchmark Scheme which aims to improve the standards of installation and commissioning of domestic heating and hot water systems in the UK and to encourage regular servicing to optimise safety, efficiency and performance.

Benchmark is managed and promoted by the Heating and Hotwater Industry Council. For more information visit www.centralheating.co.uk.

Please ensure that the installer has fully completed the

Benchmark Checklist (page 32 & 33) of this manual and that you have signed it to say that you have received a full and clear explanation of its operation. The installer is legally required to complete a commissioning checklist as a means of complying with the appropriate Building

Regulations (England & Wales).

All installations must be notified to Local Area Building

Control either directly or through a Competent

Persons Scheme. A Building Regulations Compliance

Certificate will then be issued to the customer who should, on receipt, write the Notification Number on the

Benchmark Checklist.

This product should be serviced regularly to optimise its safety, efficiency and performance. The service engineer should complete the relevant Service Record on the Benchmark Checklist after each service.

The Benchmark Checklist may be required in the event of any warranty work.

Flow performance

When initially opening hot outlets a small surge in flow may be noticed as pressures stabilise. This is quite normal with unvented systems. In some areas cloudiness may be noticed in the hot water. This is due to aeration of the water, is quite normal and will quickly clear.

Temperature controls – direct units immersion heater(s)

`

All immersion heaters are fitted with a thermostat which is fitted in the centre of the heater plate and a cut-out which is fitted to the side of the thermostat.

`

Access to the thermostat can be made by opening the immersion heater cover - DISCONNECT THE

ELECTRICAL SUPPLY BEFORE OPENING THE

COVER(S).

`

Temperature adjustment is made by rotating the adjustment spindle on the top of the thermostat.

The adjustment represents a temperature range of

15°C to 74°C.

`

Maximum working temperature is 74°C/165°F. In very hard water areas limit to 60/65°C (140/150°F).

DO NOT bypass the thermal cut-out(s) in any circumstances.

Temperature controls - indirect units

The cylinder units are fitted with an indirect thermostat and thermal cut-out. These controls must be wired in series with the 2 port motorised zone valve supplied to interrupt the flow of primary water around the heat exchanger coil when the control temperature has been reached.

DO NOT bypass the thermal cut-out(s) in any circumstances.

Operational faults

Operational faults and their possible causes are detailed in the Fault Finding section (p.28) of this book.

It is recommended that faults should be checked by a competent installer.

The air volume within the expansion vessel will periodically require recharging to ensure expanded water is accommodated within the system. A discharge of water INTERMITTENTLY from the expansion valve will indicate the air volume has reduced to a point where it can no longer accommodate the expansion.

This will require a suitably qualified person to check the expansion vessel pressure and no attempt should be made to re-pressurize the expansion vessel by the end user.

9. Maintenance

9.1 General

Maintenance requirements

Unvented hot water systems have a continuing maintenance requirement in order to ensure safe working and optimum performance. It is essential that the relief valve(s) are periodically inspected and manually opened to ensure no blockage has occurred in the valves or discharge pipework. Maintenance of this appliance should only be carried out by a suitably qualified person. Failure to do so could invalidate the warranty.

Similarly cleaning of the strainer element and replacement of the air in the expansion vessel will help to prevent possible operational faults.

The maintenance checks described below should be performed by a competent person on a regular basis, e.g. annually to coincide with boiler maintenance.

After any maintenance, please complete the relevant

Service Interval Record section of the Benchmark
