Customer Service Department at: 260 North Elm Street, Westfield,
MA 01085 for US or 7555 Tranmere Drive, Mississauga ONT L5S
1L4 for Canada. Always include the model and serial numbers from
the rating plate of the boiler in question. For information utilizing
the Fusion as a pool heater, see Addendum (UMPH) - Fusion Series
Gas Pool Heater.
RATINGS & CAPACITIES
Before undertaking the installation of the Futera Series boiler check
the rating plate to ensure that the unit has been sized properly for
the job. The “Net AHRI Ratings” specify the equivalent amount of
direct copper radiation that the unit can supply under normal
conditions. Also ensure that the unit has been set up for the type
of gas available at the installation site. Other important considerations
are the availability of an adequate electrical supply, fresh air for
combustion and a suitable chimney or vent system.
2. An optimum site will be level, central to the piping system,
close to a chimney or outside wall and have adequate fresh air
for combustion. Ensure that the boiler is level from front to back
and from side to side. Use metal shims to level the boiler.
Electrical and electronic components must also be protected
from exposure to water during operation and maintenance. DO
NOT install this boiler in a location that would subject any of
the gas ignition components to direct contact with water or
excessive moisture during operation or servicing.
3. Ensure that the floor is structurally sound and will support
the weight of the boiler.
The Futera may be installed directly on combustible
flooring, but never on carpeting.
4. Locate the boiler/water heater in an area that will prevent water
damage to adjacent construction should a leak occur or during
routine maintenance. If such a location doesn’t exist, a suitable
drain pan that’s adequately drained must be installed under the
unit.
5. DO NOT place this boiler/water heater in a location that would
restrict the introduction of combustion air into the unit or subject it to a negative pressure, see “GENERAL VENTING
GUIDELINES”.
6. NEVER place this boiler/water heater in a location that would
subject it to temperatures at or near freezing, see the “FREEZE
PROTECTION” section on page 11.
Never store combustible materials, gasoline or any
product containing flammable vapors or liquids in
the vicinity of the boiler/water heater. Failure to
comply with this warning can result in an explosion
or fire causing extensive property damage, severe
personal injury or death!
BOILER/WATER HEATER LOCATION
1. This boiler/water heater is suitable for indoor and outdoor
installations. Locate the boiler/water heater in an area that
provides good access to the unit. Servicing may require the
removal of jacket panels. Allow the minimum clearances
between adjacent construction and the boiler/water heater as
listed in Table 1.

COMBUSTION AIR & VENTILATION
This boiler/water heater must be supplied with
combustion air in accordance with Section 5.3, Air
for Combustion & Ventilation, of the latest revision
of the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA
54 and all applicable local building codes. Canadian
installations must comply with CAN/CGA B149.1 or
.2 Installation Code for Gas Burning Appliances and
Equipment, or applicable provisions of the local
building codes. Failure to provide adequate combustion
air for this boiler/water heater can result in excessive
levels of carbon monoxide which can result in severe
personal injury or death!
To operate properly and safely this boiler/water heater requires a
continuous supply of air for combustion. NEVER store objects on
or around the boiler/water heater!
3
Finned copper tube gas boilers – Boiler Manual
F
Combustion air contaminated with fluorocarbons
or other halogenated compounds such as cleaning
solvents and refrigerants will result in the formation
of acids in the combustion chamber. These acids will
cause premature failure of the boiler voiding the
warranty!
If the boiler is operated while the building is under
construction it MUST be protected from wood,
concrete, sheet rock and other types of dust. Failure
to properly protect the unit from construction dust
will damage the unit voiding the warranty!
Buildings will require the installation of a fresh air duct or other
means of providing make-up air if the intake air option isn’t used.
Any building utilizing other gas burning appliances, a fireplace, wood
stove or any type of exhaust fan must be checked for adequate
combustion air when all of these devices are in operation at one
time. Sizing of an outside air duct must be done to meet the
requirements of all such devices.
Never operate the Futera in an environment subjected
to a negative pressure unless it is Direct Vented. Failure
to comply with this warning can result in excessive
levels of carbon monoxide causing severe personal
injury or death!
All Air From Inside The Building
If the Futera is to be located in a confined space, the minimum
clearances listed in Table 1 must be maintained between it and any
combustible construction. When installed in a confined space
without the intake air option, Figures 5 and 6, two permanent
openings communicating with an additional room(s) are required.
The combined volume of these spaces must have sufficient volume
to meet the criteria for an unconfined space. The total air
requirements of all gas utilization equipment, fireplaces, wood stoves
or any type of exhaust fan must be considered when making this
determination. Each opening must have a minimum free area of
1 in2/1000 Btu/hr, 2200 mm2/kW based on the total input rating
of ALL gas utilization equipment in the confined area. Each opening
must be no less than 100 in2, 64,516 mm2 in size. The upper
opening must be within 12 in, 305 mm of, but not less than 3 in,
76 mm from, the top of the enclosure. The bottom opening must
be within 12 in, 305 mm of, but not less than 3 in, 76 mm from,
the bottom of the enclosure.
All Air From Outside The Building
When installed in a confined space without utilizing the intake
air option two permanent openings communicating directly with,
or by ducts to, the outdoors or spaces that freely communicate
with the outdoors must be present. The upper opening must be
within 12 in, 305 mm of, but not less than 3 in, 76 mm from, the
top of the enclosure. The bottom opening must be within 12 in,
305 mm of, but not less than 3 in, 76 mm from, the bottom of
the enclosure.
4
Where directly communicating with the outdoors or communicating with the outdoors through vertical ducts, each opening shall
have a minimum free area of 1 in2/4000 Btu/hr, 550 mm2/kW
of the total input rating of all of the equipment in the enclosure.
Where communicating with the outdoors through horizontal
ducts, each opening shall have a minimum free area of 1 in2/
2000 Btu/hr, 1100 mm2/kW of the total input rating of all of
the equipment in the enclosure.
When ducts are used, they must have the same cross-sectional area
as the free area of the opening to which they connect.
When calculating the free area necessary to meet the make-up
air requirements of the enclosure, consideration must be given
to the blockage effects of louvers, grills and screens. Screens must
have a minimum mesh size of 1/4 in, 6.4 mm. If the free area
through a louver or grill is not known, ducts should be sized per
Table 2.
Canadian installations must comply with CSA B149.1 when
air supply is provided by natural air flow from the outdoors for
natural draft, partial fan-assisted, fan-assisted, or power draftassisted burners, there shall be a permanent air supply opening(s)
having a cross-sectional area of not less than 1 in2 per 7,000
Btuh (310 mm2 per kW) up to and including 1 million Btuh,
plus 1 in2 per 14,000 Btuh (155 mm2 per kW) in excess of
1 million Btuh.

Intake Air Option – General Guidelines
This configuration provides combustion air directly to the boiler’s
air intake adapter using a dedicated pipe when using the direct vent
option. Combustion air can be drawn in horizontally through the
same outside wall which terminates the exhaust gases or vertically
through the roof, see Figures 1, 2, 3 & 4.
Common intake air systems may be used provided
the common duct is sized properly. An intake
combustion air damper should be installed if the
common vent option is used in the intake air pipe of
each heater. Improper installation can result in excessive
levels of carbon monoxide which can cause severe
personal injury or death!
Single wall galvanized smoke pipe, single wall aluminum pipe,
flexible aluminum pipe, PVC or CPVC pipe can be used for the
intake air pipe. It must be sized per Table 3.

All joints in metal intake air systems must be secured using corrosion resistant fasteners and sealed using a suitable Silicone caulk.
If PVC or CPVC is used, the joints must be cleaned with a suitable
solvent and connected using a solvent based PVC cement. The
combustion air system MUST be supported by the building
structure not the boiler/water heater.
A combustion air damper interlocked with the unit
should be installed in the intake air pipe when the
infiltration of subfreezing air could occur, otherwise
the unit could freeze up voiding the warranty!
A UL listed stainless steel vent system must be used
unless this unit is fitted with an RBI supplied nonmetallic vent kit. Failure to comply with this warning
can cause excessive levels of carbon monoxide resulting
in severe illness and death!
For instructions utilizing the non-metallic vent option,
see Addendum (FTF-PVCVO) for PVC and (FTFPPVO) for Polypropylene.
Vent System Options
The flue products in the vent system may be cooled below their
dew point and form condensate in the flue. The materials used for
a Category IV vent must be resistant to any corrosive damage
from flue gas condensate. The flue from a Category IV vent system
must have a condensate drain with provisions to properly collect
and dispose of any condensate that may occur in the venting system.
The Futera Fusion may be vented the following ways:
Intake Air Option – Vertical Guidelines
The maximum equivalent length for the vertical intake air pipe is
100 ft, 30.5 m. Each 90° elbow and the intake air terminal are

The vent piping must be large enough to safely vent the
combined output of all of the appliances connected
to the system.
If an appliance using any type of a mechanical draft
system operating under positive pressure is connected
to a chimney flue, never connect any other appliances
to this flue. Doing so can result in excessive levels of
carbon monoxide which can cause severe personal
injury or death!
Category II Chimney Inspection & sizing
Masonry chimneys, when used, must be lined with a
metal liner certified for Category IV venting.
A thorough inspection of the masonry chimney must be performed
to ensure that the chimney is clean, properly constructed, lined
and sized. Exterior masonry chimneys should not be used unless
properly lined to prevent draft problems.
Always provide a minimum clearance of 6 in, 152 mm between
single wall vent pipe and any combustible materials.
Exit cones are favorable when used to increase
the velocity of the flue gas exiting the stack and,
may also help, in cold climates, to reduce ice buildup. Exit cone terminations must be supplied by
others, installed per manufacturer’s instructions,
and meet local and federal code.

Flow Switch
Pump Requirements
The flow switch supplied with the boiler must be wired to the
terminal strip in the control panel to prevent the boiler from firing
unless there’s adequate water flow through the unit. The flow switch
must be installed in the supply piping adjacent to the boiler outlet
connection.
This low mass boiler requires a continuous minimum water flow
across the primary heat exchanger for proper operation. The boiler
pump is sized to overcome the head loss of the boiler primary and
secondary heat exchanger and the near piping in order to achieve the
required flow. The temperature rise across the primary heat exchanger
must never exceed 35°F, 19.4°C. See Tables 8 and 9 for the total
boiler recovery rate (gph) and inlet/outlet delta t based on the desired
boiler inlet temperature. The adjustable pump delay turns the pump
on each time the burner fires and runs the pump for 20 to 600 seconds
after the call for heat is satisfied.
Failure to properly install the flow switch may result
in damage to the boiler heat exchanger voiding the
warranty!
The maximum allowable primary heat exchanger
temperature rise is 35°F, 19.4°C.
HEATING SYSTEM PIPING
Factory Supplied - On Board - Circulating Pump
General Piping Requirements
All heating system piping must be installed by a qualified technician
in accordance with the latest revision of the ANSI/ASME Boiler and
Pressure Vessel Code, Section IV, and ANSI/ASME CSD-1,
Standard for Controls and Safety Devices for Automatically Fired
Boilers. All applicable local codes and ordinances must also be
followed. A minimum clearance of 1 in, 25 mm must be maintained
between heating system pipes and all combustible construction.
All heating system piping must be supported by suitable hangers
not the boiler. The thermal expansion of the system must be
considered when supporting the system. A minimum system
pressure of 12 psig, 82.7 kPa must be maintained.
The factory installed - on board - pump is sized to work the total
boiler head loss plus an additional (30 ft) of pipe and (6 elbows).
Please consult factory for systems outside these parameters.
Low Water Cutoff
If a boiler is installed above any radiation elements it must be fitted
with a low water cutoff device.
Refer to the wiring diagram supplied with the boiler for proper
wiring connections.
Expansion Tank & Air Separator
Bleed Air From Boiler
Open the boiler piping bleed valves one at a time, to purge the air
trapped in the primary and secondary heat exchangers. Refer to
piping drawings (Figures 7, 8 & 9) for bleed locations.
An expansion tank or other means to control thermal expansion
must be installed in the heating system. An expansion tank must
be installed close to the boiler on the suction side of the pump. An
air scoop and automatic air vent must also be installed to eliminate
air trapped in the system.
Heating Boiler Piping Connections
Primary/Secondary Piping
The supply and return connections should be sized to suit the system,
see Table 6.
Figure 10 shows a typical primary/secondary piping system. Boilers
connected to heating systems using zone valves, zone pumps, or
systems that have excessive flow rates must be isolated from these
systems to protect the boiler.

Multiple Boiler Systems
Systems using multiple boilers can also be installed using a primary/
secondary manifold system, Figure 11.
Piping For Use With Cooling Units
The boiler, when used in connection with a refrigeration system,
must be installed so the chilled medium is piped in parallel with
the boiler. Appropriate valves must be used to prevent the chilled
water from entering the boiler.
When a boiler is connected to a heating coil that may be exposed
to refrigerated air from an air handling device, the piping system
must be equipped with flow-control valves or some other automatic
means of preventing gravity circulation of the boiler water during
the cooling cycle.

DOMESTIC WATER SUPPLY PIPING
Proper controls must be used to prevent water supplied
for domestic use from exceeding 130°F, 54°C or a
scald injury will occur! When higher water temperatures
are required for appliances such as a dishwasher, a
mixing valve or some other tempering means must be
installed. Households with small children may require
water temperature less than 120°F, 49°C. Local codes
must be complied with!
RBI water heaters are designed to run scale free. Due to the extreme
variables of water conditions world wide it is necessary to consider
pH values and water hardness in relationship to scaling. It is crucial
to consider these two variables when making heat exchanger and
pump selections. If local water conditions are extreme, follow the
guidelines in the Heat Exchanger Selection Table 7. Scale free
operation can be achieved by using water with a hardness between
8 and 18 and by maintaining the pH between 5 and 9. Follow
the conditions listed under NORMAL in the table. In some areas
of the country additional precautions must be observed due to
unusual characteristics of the local water supply. Call the nearest RBI
representative for details.
General Piping Requirements
The Fusion XLF boiler can be used in combination with an indirect
tank to provide hot water for domestic use. Piping and components
must be suitable for use with potable water. The indirect storage tank
must be equipped with a temperature and pressure relief valve that
complies with ANSI Z21.22 or CAN-4.4 and CAN-4.6.
The storage tank must be located as close to the unit
heater as possible to prevent excessive head loss which
will reduce flow.
Bleed Air From Unit Heater
Open the unit heater piping bleed valves one at a time, to purge the
air trapped in the primary and secondary heat exchangers. Refer to
piping drawings (Figures 10 & 11) for bleed locations.
Water Chemistry
The required temperature rise across the primary heat exchanger is
based on water having a hardness between 8 and 18 grains per gallon
with a level of dissolved solids not exceeding 350 ppm. Water having
a hardness less than 8 grains can cause excessive corrosion of the heat
exchanger. Water that has a hardness greater than 18 grains per gallon
and/or a level of dissolved solids exceeding 350 ppm will require a
recalculation of the pump size and temperature rise.
A cupro-nickel primary heat exchanger may also be required. The
manufacturer should be consulted when these water conditions are
encountered. See Table 7.
Expansion Tank
An expansion tank or other means to control thermal expansion
must be installed in the water heating system if back flow prevention
devices are installed.
Pump Requirements
This low-mass water heater requires a continuous minimum water
flow for proper operation. The proper velocity through the unit heater
must be maintained for efficient operation and long life. If the
temperature rise through the primary heat exchanger is lower than
recommended the water velocity is too high. Premature erosion of
the primary heat exchanger will occur. Conversely, if the temperature
rise is too high, the flow rate is too low. Scaling and softening of the
primary heat exchanger will occur. The temperature rise across
the primary heat exchanger must never exceed 35°F, 19.4°C.
The factory mounted circulatory pump is sized to work
the total boiler pressure drop and an additional 30 ft. of
pipe and 6-90° elbows.
Storage Tank Thermostatic Mixing Valve
Water can be stored at temperatures above 140°F, 60°C provided
that a thermostatically controlled mixing valve is used to temper
the hot water to an acceptable temperature before it’s supplied for
domestic use.
The mixing valve MUST be set to prevent a scald injury from
occurring, see the caution against scalding.
Storage of water for domestic use above 140°F, 60°C will provide
an increased quantity of tempered water and help prevent the
growth of water born bacteria.

GAS SUPPLY PIPING
Check the boiler rating plate to make sure that the
boiler is for the type of gas that will be used. If it isn’t,
do not connect the boiler to the gas supply. Gas supply
piping must be in accordance with the National Fuel
Code, ANSI Z223.1-latest revision or applicable
provisions of the local building codes. Canadian
installations must comply with CAN/CGA B149.1 or
.2 Installation Code. Failure to comply with this
warning can result in extensive property damage,
severe personal injury or death!
The Futera Fusion XLF comes from the factory ready to be piped
to the gas supply. If for any reason the boiler is not for the type of
gas available at the installation site, call your RBI representative to
resolve the problem.
A minimum gas supply pressure of 3.5 in, 88.9 mm,
WC natural or propane and maximum 14 in, 356
mm WC natural or propane, must be available at the
safety shutoff valve inlet with the unit(s) operating,
and not to exceed a maximum of a (1.0 in WC) drop
when firing from minimum input to full load of the
gas supply line and all the appliances running.
Table 10 should be used to ensure that the gas supply piping is sized
properly. If more than one appliance is supplied by the same supply
pipe, the piping must be sized based on the maximum possible
demand. Do not neglect the pressure drop due to pipe fittings. Table
10 should be used in conjunction with Table 10 to ensure that the
gas supply piping has the capacity to meet the demand.
Figure 14 depicts the proper way to connect the boiler to the gas
supply piping. The manual shut-off valve MUST be installed in the
supply piping. It should be installed 5 ft, 1.5 m above the floor where
required by local codes. Provide a sediment trap at the bottom of the
vertical section of the gas supply pipe upstream of the gas controls.
A ground joint union should be installed between the boiler gas
controls and the supply piping. Each of these items are needed to
ensure long life and ease of servicing. Always use a pipe sealant
that is suitable for use with LP gas.

FOR YOUR SAFETY READ BEFORE OPERATING.
POUR VOTRE SÉCURITÉ LISEZ AVANT DE
METTRE EN MARCHE
A. This appliance is equipped with an ignition device which automatically lights the pilot. Do not try to light the pilot by hand.
Cet appareil est muni d’un dispositif d’allumage qui allume
automatiquement la veilleuse. Ne tentez pas d’allumer la veilleuse manuellement.
B. BEFORE OPERATING smell all around the appliance area
for gas. Be sure to smell next to the floor because some gas is
heavier than air and will settle on the floor.
Propane gas may not always be detected by smell.
Propane gas is heavier than air and can collect in low
areas.
Open the make-up water valve and slowly fill the boiler and all
of the radiation with water. Ensure that all bleed and drain valves
are closed.
Adjust the make-up water pressure regulator so a minimum 5 psig,
82.7 kPa system pressure is maintained at the highest point in the
system piping. If a make-up water pump is used adjust it to maintain
a minimum 12 psig, 82.7 kPa pressure at boiler under operating
conditions.
Glycol systems require a minimum of 20 psig, 137.8 kPa
at boiler operating conditions.
Open the boiler piping bleed valves one at a time, to purge
the air trapped in the primary and secondary heat
exchanger. Refer to piping drawings (Figures 10 & 11) for
bleed locations.
With the boiler off, run the system pump for at least 30 minutes
and bleed the system piping using the bleed valves. If strainers are
used in the system piping, the make- up water valve should be closed
and the strainers checked and cleaned.
The system expansion tank should be checked to ensure that the
correct water level in the tank is maintained. The tank should be
less than half full of water with the system full and adjusted
to the correct operating pressure.
Start the boiler as described in the “OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS” section. Run the boiler for at least an hour. The system
pump(s) and all radiation units must be operated during this time.
Ensure that the make-up water valve is open.
Shut the boiler off and open the bleed valves to purge the air trapped
in the heating system piping. Close the make-up water valve and
check and clean the strainers and make-up water pressure reducing
valve.
Open the make-up water valve and adjust the system pressure if
necessary. The system should be checked and bled after three days
of operation.

1. If, at any time, the boiler will not operate properly, follow the
instructions “TO TURN OFF GAS TO APPLIANCE,” page 25,
and call your service technician or gas supplier.
2. Turn off all electrical power to the boiler.
3. Close main gas shut-off valve (field supplied), Figure 14.
4. Purge the gas piping up to the boiler’s manual gas valve (located
ahead of the main gas valve). When the bleeding is complete,
check all gas joints up to the gas valve for leaks.
5. Wait five (5) minutes to clear out any gas.
6. Make sure all limits, pressures switches and safety device contacts
are closed.
7. Open the main gas shut-off valve.
8. Disable any external call for heat, such as from a building
management system or remote operating controller.
9. Toggle the remote/local switch (in control cabinet — see
Figure 18) to REMOTE.
10. Turn on electrical power to the boiler.
11. Turn the power switch on the front of the boiler control cabinet
to ON.
12. The HeatNet display will light up when the power is on. If all
interlocks are properly closed, the display will say STANDBY. If
not, refer to the XLF HeatNet Control manual for troubleshooting.
13. Slide the HeatNet control’s low fire switch (on HeatNet control
board) to the LOW FIRE position.
14. The boiler will begin the start-up sequence.
15. Allow the boiler to pre-purge and enter the pilot ignition cycle.
16. If pilot lights (indicated by a good flame signal 5.0 V DC) proceed
to step 18. (See Honeywell R7800 literature for use of a meter
to check flame signal if keypad readout is not available.)
17. If pilot is unstable (indicated by a low or erratic flame signal
causing pilot flame failure), toggle the low fire switch to DISABLE,
then back to ENABLE to start another cycle (reset the Honeywell
control if necessary). Repeat for one or two more times to ensure
the pilot line is purged of all air. If pilot is still unstable, the pilot
gas pressure may need to be increased. See step 18.
18. Pilot pressure adjustment:
a. Switch the Honeywell control to TEST position within the
first 10 seconds of the pilot ignition sequence.
b. Connect one side of a manometer or pressure gauge to the
manometer pressure port (barbed) on the pressure test manifold
(located inside control panel). See Figure 15. Leave the other
side of the manometer open to the room.
c. Measure pilot gas pressure by pressing and holding the
service valve marked PILOT GAS.
d. Set pilot gas pressure to 3.0 in WC (± 0.5 in) by adjusting
the pilot gas pressure regulator, inside the air box. Access

Verify low fire operation
1. Connect a manometer or Magnehelic gauge with the pressure
side to the manifold pressure port. See Figure 15, for locations.
2. Set Honeywell R7800 control to RUN position. The boiler will
operate at low fire because the low fire switch is in the low fire
position.
3. Measure the flue gas CO2 with the boiler running at low fire.
Set low fire CO2 to 8.0% – 8.5% by adjustment on the Dungs
valve using a 3mm Allen wrench.
a. Turn the wrench in small increments (10 degrees at a time).
b. Allow time after each adjustment for the boiler to reach
steady state.
4. After setting the CO2, measure the pressure signal, Ps.
a. Press the Ps (signal) button and read the pressure. The
pressure at low fire should be as shown in Table 12.
b. If the pressure is outside of this range, follow the instructions in the HeatNet Control manual to set the required
turndown.
c. Utilize the ACTech drive to trim the low fire pressure signal
(Ps) as follows: Press the “Mode” button on the AC Tech
Drive.
d. The drive will now require a password. Use the Arrow Keys
on the AC Tech Drive to enter the password value of “523”
then press “Mode”.
e. The parameters of the drive will be accessible at this point.
Use the Arrow Keys on the AC Tech Drive to scroll to P45.
Press “Mode” to view the entry; use the Arrow Keys to adjust
the value to achieve the required combustion – CO2/O2,
and pressure – (Ps) at low fire based on the desired turn
down. The default values are listed in Table 12.
f. When complete press “Mode” again to save the value.
If using a U-tube manometer turned sideways for low
pressure readings, you MUST turn the manometer
upright before attempting to measure pressures at
other than low fire. Pressure signal could reach up to
11 in when the boiler is at high fire, and can cause
fluid to be pulled out of the manometer into the boiler.
Should this occur, immediately shut down the boiler
and contact the factory for procedure. Preferably, use
a Magnehelic gauge instead of a U-tube manometer
to measure the pressure to avoid this potential hazard.

To ensure proper boiler operation, boilers that are
vented sidewall and use room air must not be fired
at less than 33% input.
5. Observe the burner flame after setting low fire. Make sure the
flame is stable, but not too tight on the burner (causing infrared
operation).
DO NOT LEAVE THE BURNER IN AN INFRARED STATE.
A few random speckles of red are acceptable, but large
concentrations of spots or large areas of red are not.
If large amounts of red concentrations are observed,
verify combustion readings.
Leave the manometer connected to the test manifold.
It will be needed for high fire operation testing.
Verify high fire operation
1. Jumper the AA terminals on the HeatNet board and allow the
boiler to rise to maximum (100%) input.
2. Allow the boiler to reach steady state combustion at high fire.
3. Verify high fire blower speed as follows:
a. With the manometer (or gauge) connected to the test manifold,
press the Ps (signal) button and read the pressure.
b. The pressure at high fire should be as shown in Table 12.
c. If the pressure is NOT correct, follow step 4.
Finned copper tube gas boilers – Boiler Manual
F
4. If the high fire signal pressure is not correct:
a. Follow the instructions in the HeatNet Control manual to
calibrate the required input (Ps) for high altitude installations.
The maximum firing rate value in the HeatNet control is
factory set at (90%). At this setting, for sea level applications
and with typical vent lengths, the boiler will be at rate. DO
NOT increase above (90%) unless needed for high altitude
installations.
b. For sea level installations only, the ACTech drive can be used
to trim high fire input (Ps) as follows: Press the “Mode”
button on the AC Tech Drive.
c. The drive will now require a password. Use the Arrow Keys
on the AC Tech Drive to enter the password value of “523”
then press “Mode”.
d. The parameters of the drive will be accessible at this point.
Use the Arrow Keys on the AC Tech Drive to scroll to P46.
Press “Mode” to view the entry; use the Arrow Keys to adjust
the value to achieve the required combustion – CO2/O2,
and pressure – (Ps). The default values are listed in Table
12.
e. When complete press “Mode” again to save the value.
5. If the pressure signal is correct, measure the flue gas CO2. It
should be between 9% and 9.5%.
a. If CO2 is correct, proceed to step 6.
b. If CO2 is not within this range, adjust the air trim adjustment
slightly (see Figure 16) on top of mixing box to achieve a
CO2 of 9% - 9.5%.
c. If adjusting the air trim adjustment does not correct the
problem, contact technical support at the factory to
troubleshoot the problem.
6. If CO2 and pressure signal are correct, allow the boiler to reach
steady state and verify supply gas pressure and check input rates
as explained in the Gas Supply Piping section.
7. Remove jumper on AA and allow boiler to settle into minimum
input. Observe the combustion readings to ensure the boiler
is operating correctly.
8. When finished, disable the low fire hold switch and replace test
ports to normal state. Remove the manometer connections and
close the control panel door.
9. The Futera XLF boiler allows for many modes of operation
and control methods. Reference the HeatNet Control manual.

1. Measure pressure when the boiler is firing at full rate. Low
gas pressure could indicate undersized gas line or insufficient
gas supply.
2. Static and operating gas pressure required at the gas valve inlet
is listed in the Table 13.
If the gas pressure is above the limit in Table 13, a lock-up
style gas pressure regulator suitable for dead-end service,
(such as an Equimeter or Fisher) must be installed
to prevent increase (creep) of gas pressure when the
units are not operating and gas supply pressure, as
indicated in Table 13, must be maintained to the inlet
of the boiler gas train not to exceed a maximum of
(1.0 in WC) drop when firing from minimum input to
full load of the gas supply line and all the appliances
running.
Pilot Adjustment
1. The pilot pressure has been factory set at 3 in WC, and shouldn’t
need adjustment.
a. With the boiler powered, generate a call for heat.
b. When the prepurge is complete the ignition/pilot trial will
begin.
2. To adjust the pilot the following steps must be taken:
a. Put the Honeywell RM7800 test switch in the test position.
The control will hold in the ignition/pilot sequence, allowing
you to check the pressure.
b. Connect one side of a manometer or pressure gauge to
the manometer pressure port (barbed) on the pressure
test manifold (located inside control panel). See Figure 13.
Leave the other side of the manometer open to the room.
c. Measure pilot gas pressure by pressing and holding the
service valve marked PILOT GAS.
d. Set pilot gas pressure to 3.0 in WC (± 0.5 in) by adjusting
the pilot gas pressure regulator, inside the air box. Access
from the boiler top cover. See Figure 16.
e. Check pilot air pressure using service valve marked PILOT
AIR.
f. Pilot air pressure should be 0.60 in WC (± 0.10 in).
Never force the regulator adjustment screw beyond
the stop limits or damage to the regulator will occur!
26
This pressure regulator (supplied by others) may be
installed at the service entrance to each unit or a “master”
regulator sized to handle multiple units with adequate
turndown capability may be utilized. Consult local gas
utility or regulator manufacturer for recommendations
to meet specific job site requirements.
Input Rate — Natural Gas
Gas appliances are rated based on sea level operation with no
adjustment required at elevations up to 2000 ft, 610 m. At elevations
above 2000 ft, 610 m input ratings should be reduced by 4% for
each 1000 ft, 305 m.
Check the input rate as follows:
1. Turn off all other gas appliances that use the same gas meter
as the boiler.
2. Call your gas supplier and ask for the heating value of the gas.
3. Start the boiler and let it run for 15 minutes.
4. Using the gas meter and a stopwatch, clock the time that it takes
to burn 10 ft3, 0.28 m3 of gas and divide this time by 10.
5. Insert the heating value and the time, in seconds, into the formula
below.
6. Input = (heating value, Btu/hr)(3600)/(time, seconds)
7. If the computed rate deviates by more than 5% from the rated
input value of the unit, consult factory.
Never increase the input to the boiler above that for
which it is rated. Doing so can cause premature failure
of the boiler!

protection is required to prevent damage to the heat exchanger in the
event high differential temperatures are encountered. The fault or
warning condition may be changed in the AUX FUNCTIONS
menu under ALARM TYPE. The default condition is WARNING
with LIM->HALF RATE = YES.
When this condition exists and the ALARM TYPE is set to
WARNING and LIM-> HALF RATE, the boiler is limited to 1/2
it’s input rate. So, if the boiler is trying to fire at 80%, the rate is
limited to 40% until the temperature across the heat exchanger
falls at least 10°F below the maximum designated temperature
for the Futera Fusion boiler model. In this case: 40°F - 10°F = 30°F.
If the ALARM TYPE is set to FAULT, the boiler will display the

MAINTENANCE
Disconnect electrical power and close the manual gas
shut off valve before performing maintenance or severe
personal injury may result!
Servicing, inspection and adjustment must be done by
a trained technician in accordance with all applicable
local and national codes. Improper servicing or
adjustment can damage the boiler!
The boiler must be cleaned and inspected at least once a year and
before each heating season. Make sure that the burner and ignition
components are free from dust, soot, dirt, corrosion or other deposits
that would impair the boiler’s performance. Refer to Figure 15 for
component identification.
Improper burner servicing can result in premature
burner failure voiding the warranty!
Pilot and burner removal
1. Close the manual shutoff valves in the gas supply line and turn
off electrical power to the boiler.
2. Remove the jacket top panel.
3. Remove wires from the spark rods and remove the UV sensor
from the transition piece.
4. Remove the pilot assembly:
a. Disconnect the compression nut at the front of the pilot block.
b. Remove the pilot gas tubing.
c. Remove the (2) screws from the pilot block.
d Remove the pilot assembly.
5. Disconnect the flexible gas line from the manifold.
6. Disconnect the wires to the fan and remove the (2) bolts and the
fan hold-down plates that secure the fan to the transition piece.
7. Lift and remove the fan housing from the boiler, taking care not
to damage the spark rods and or their alignment.
8. Remove the four nuts holding the transition piece to the heat
exchanger.
9. Remove the transition piece, taking care not to damage the O-ring.
10. Remove the burner, taking care not to damage the gasket.
11. Replace all components after servicing.
Heat exchanger inspection
1. Close the manual shutoff valves in the gas supply lines and turn
off electrical power to the boiler.
2. Remove burner following the instructions in the Burner Removal
section.
3. Remove the front jacket panel and combustion chamber door.
4. Inspect the inside and outside of the heat exchanger for signs
of damage, sooting or corrosion.
5. The outside surfaces of the copper tubes should be free of
any soot deposits. A slight black smudge is normal with
some types of gases. Black soot indicates poor combustion.
Green deposits indicate condensation due to low return water
temperatures. In either case the heat exchanger must be cleaned
thoroughly and the problem resolved before the boiler is
returned to service.
6. If there are no signs of damage, sooting or corrosion, reassemble
the unit following the previous steps in reverse order.
7. A badly corroded or damaged heat exchanger must be replaced,
see the Heat Exchanger Repair & Replacement section.
Heat exchanger cleaning
1. Close the shut off valves in the inlet and outlet piping. On heating
systems close the system fill valve and relieve the system pressure
from the boiler by carefully lifting the relief valve or opening
the drain valve.
2. Disconnect the boiler from the system piping.
3. Remove the eight bolts on the rear pipe enclosure panel.
4. Remove the front jacket panel and combustion chamber door.
5. Slide the heat exchanger out of the unit.
6. Remove the “V” baffle straps and “V” baffles.
7. Thoroughly clean the heat exchanger with water from a highpressure hose. Use a soft bristle brush if necessary.
8. Replace the cleaned heat exchanger and other components in
the reverse order of their removal.
Heat exchanger repair & replacement
1. A leaking or otherwise damaged tube(s) can be replaced as
outlined in steps 2 through 8.
2. Remove the heat exchanger from the boiler as outlined in the
Heat Exchanger Cleaning section.
3. Remove the pipe plugs from the inlet/outlet and return headers
opposite from the ends of the tube(s) being replaced.
4. Carefully cut the damaged tube(s) in half, taking care not to
damage the adjacent tubes and remove.
5. Install and swage/expand in place the new tube(s). Replace the
pipe plugs using a suitable thread sealant on each one.
6. Sagging or distorted heat exchanger tubes are an indication of
low water flow through the system. A damaged heat exchanger
must be replaced and the condition that caused the damage
resolved before the boiler is returned to service.
7. Replace the heat exchanger and other components in the reverse
order of their removal.
Air intake & vent system
Thoroughly inspect the air intake and vent systems for any signs of
blockage, corrosion or leakage. Immediately replace any unsound
vent system piping. Inspect the air filter and wash with warm water
and soap if dirty.

Controls
Manometer test port manifold
Use the “GENERAL OPERATION” and “CHECKING AND
ADJUSTMENTS” sections of this manual for reference.
1. Check the operating controls for proper operation.
2. A float type low water cutoff device must be flushed out per
the manufacturers’ instructions.
a. The probe on a probe low water cut off must be removed,
cleaned and inspected at least once a year.
b. Ensure that the low water cutoffs operate properly. If not,
replace them.
3. The flow switch contacts must be open when water flow is not
present.
4. The relief valve should not weep or discharge water at normal
system pressure. If it does, contact a qualified service technician
to have it inspected.
1. The Futera Fusion XLF includes a manometer test manifold.
Connect the manometer pressure hose to the Pressure Tap port
shown in Figure 20. These pressures signals may be used for
troubleshooting when specified by factory support.
2. Figure 21, shows the sensor hose connections inside the
Futera Fusion XLF air box.
NEVER try to clean or repair the relief valve! If the
valve fails to operate properly, have it replaced!
5. The aquastat high limit controls the maximum water temperature
in the boiler.
a. If the water temperature reaches the set temperature before
the demand for heat has been met, the aquastat high limit
should shut the boiler off.
b. The water temperature should never exceed the maximum
set point of 250oF, 121oC, for boilers and 210oF, 99oC
for water heaters.
c. The aquastat high limit cannot be repaired. If it fails to
function properly, replace it.
6. Visually check the pilot and main burner flames to ensure proper
operation, see Figure 19.
A yellow, floating flame indicates a lack of combustion
air. Do not operate the boiler until the problem is
solved or severe personal injury or death may occur!

Troubleshooting A Startup
Symptom
An Interlock is tripped.
1.
Identify Source
1. Is it a 24 VAC Interlock?
2. Is it a 120 VAC Interlock/
Alarm?
Check
Action
1. All 24 VAC Interlocks are
located on J11A and J11B.
Examples of 24 VAC Interlocks:
1.SPARE3
2. V ariable Frequency Drive(VFD)
3. Low Water Cutoff(LWCO),
4. Gas Pressure
5. Spare 4
6. Operator OPLIM
7. Water Flow
8. Air Pressure from UV Sensor.
1.Use a multimeter and check
for 24 VAC on J11A,J11B to
identify which interlock has
tripped. Reset the Interlock or
check for disconnected wiring
or shorts.
2. All 120 VAC interlocks/Alarms
are located on J5. These include:
1.FLAME SAFE ALARM (Ignition
CTRL ALARM)
2. V alve Alarm (IRI ALARM)
3. XS_FACTORY (Reserved
4. HIGH LIMIT
1. Use a multimeter on J5 to
to check for 120 VAC on
these interlocks (except the
HIGH LIMIT). The High Limit
Interlock is displayed when
there is no 120 VAC, since
the HIGH LIMIT breaks the
120VAC to the Ignition
Control.
The Air Pressure from UV
Sensor interlock if displayed
will allow the boiler to
function, but it needs to be
functional while the boiler is
running for it to clear.
NOTE: Stray Voltages
Greater than 8 VAC and less
than 18 VAC on these
interlocks can cause
intermittant operation. If this
is the case, check for back
fed voltages from field wiring.
3. Internal Alarms
1. OPEN SENSOR
2. SHORTED SENSOR
3. COMBUSTION AIR DAMPER
Check sensor voltages at
J10A and J10B. The
Temperature sensor inputs
should be between 0 VDC
and 5 VDC measured across
the sensor. Example: At 77°F,
the voltage would read 2.5
VDC.
The combustion air damper
prove switch must be wired
across SPARE 1 and must be
a "DRY" contact. Do not
apply a voltage to this input,
the input supplies it's own
voltage/current.
