Boiler Design

Boiler Design Condensate Drain

This boiler is designed to provide central heating and instantaneous hot water for use as part of a sealed water central heating system with fully pumped circulation.

The pumps , expansion vessel and associated safety devices are all fitted within the boiler. The integral programmer is designed for both simple operation and maximum control. Once the controls are set the boiler will operate automatically.

Glow-worm has specially designed accessories for your appliance depending on yourrequirements, please contact your supplier or visit our website www.glow-worm.co.uk.

A plastic drain pipe must be fitted to allow discharge of condensate to a drain.

Condensate should, if possible, be discharged into the internal household draining system. If this is not practical, discharge can be made externally into the household drainage system or a purpose designed soak away, see section 9 for more details

Pluming from flue terminal

Like all condensing boilers this appliance will produce a plume of condensation from the flue terminal in cool weather. This is due to the high efficiency and hence low flue gas temperature of the boiler.

This is normal and not an indication of a fault.

Safety Devices

Electrical Supply Failure Reset Switch

In the event of a power supply failure the boiler will not work.

Normal operation of the boiler should resume when the electrical supply is restored.

However, if the boiler does not resume normal operation turn the mains reset switch off and on. If the boiler does not resume normal operation after this operation the overheat stat may have operated.

Frost protection

The appliance has a built in frost protection device that protects the boiler from freezing. With the gas and electric supplies ON and irrespective of any room thermostat setting, the frost protection device will operate the pump when the temperature of the boiler water falls below 7°C.

The burner will fire if the temperature inside the boiler falls to 3°C.

When the temperature reaches 10°C the boiler stops.

Any other exposed areas of the system should be protected by a separate frost thermostat.

Overheating safety

In the event of the boiler overheating the safety devices will cause a safety shutdown. If this happens, call your Installation/

Servicing company.

Discharge and Relief Valves

Heating and Domestic discharge safety valves and a

Domestic hot water pressure relief valve are fitted to this appliance. The valves must not be touched except by a competant person.

If the valves discharges at any time, switch the appliance off and isolate it from the electrical supply.

Condensate Drain Blockage

As a safety feature the boiler will stop working if the condensate drain becomes blocked. During freezing conditions this may be due to the forming of ice in the condense drain external to the house. Release an ice blockage by the use of warm cloths on the pipe. The boiler should then restart. Contact your installation/ servicing company if the fault persists.

Servicing, Maintenance and Spare Parts

Maintenance and Servicing

To ensure the continued efficient and safe operation of the appliance it is recommended that it is checked and serviced as necessary at regular intervals. The frequency of servicing will depend upon the particular installation conditions and usage.

3.3 Terminal Position

The minimum acceptable siting dimensions for the terminal from obstructions, other terminals and ventilation openings are shown in diagram 3.4. For Ireland the minimum distances for flue terminal positioning must be those detailed in I.S.813 “Domestic

Gas Installations”.

The terminal must be exposed to the external air, allowing free passage of air across it at all times.

Being a condensing boiler some pluming may occur from the flue outlet. This should be taken into consideration when selecting the position for the terminal.

Carports or similar extensions of a roof only, or a roof and one wall, require special consideration with respect to any openings, doors, vents or windows under the roof. Care is required to protect the roof if made of plastic sheeting. If the carport comprises of a roof and two or more walls, seek advice from the local gas supply company before installing the boiler.

H* and J* See diagram 3.4 . These dimensions comply with the building regulations, but they may need to be increased to avoid wall staining and nuisance from pluming depending on site conditions.

Increased siting flexibility can be achieved by using the Glow-worm

Plume Management Kit. A2044000 (black) or A2044100 (white).

NOTE: If the flue terminal is positioned near a light source insects may enter the flue system. Where safe and practical to do so advise the homeowner to check the flue outlet and clear visible insects from the terminal end.

3.4 Terminal Guard

A terminal guard is required if persons could come into contact with the terminal or the terminal could be subject to damage.

If a terminal guard is required, it must be positioned to provide minimum of 50mm clearance from any part of the terminal and be central over the terminal.

The guard should be similar to that shown in diagram 3.5.

A suitable guard is manufactured by: -

4 Heating System

4.1 General

The boiler is for use only with sealed central heating systems.

The safety valve is an integral part of the boiler and it cannot be adjusted.

The digital readout on the controls fascia indicates the system pressure when there is no demand.

The circulation pumps are integral with the boiler.

4.2 Expansion Vessel

The boiler has an integral expansion vessel with a useful capacity of 12 litres (2.6 gallons), with a charge pressure of 0.75bar.

NOTE: The expansion vessel volume depends on the total water system volume and the initial system design pressure.

Guidance on vessel sizing is also given in the current issue of

BS5449 and BS7074 Part 1, for IE refer to the current edition of I.S.813 “Domestic Gas Installations”.

4.3 Flow Rate

If it is necessary to alter the flow rate, the system can be fitted with a lockable balancing valve in the main flow or return pipes.

The flow rate through the boiler must not be allowed to fall below

500 litres/hr.

4.4 Bypass

The boiler is fitted with an automatic bypass. Ensure that under no circumstances does the flow rate drop below the figure specified.

The installation of the boiler must comply with the requirements of the current issue of BS6798, in Ireland, refer also to the current edition of I.S.813 “Domestic Gas Installations”.

In GB it is necessary to comply with the Water Supply (Water

Fittings) Regulations 1999 (for Scotland, the Water Byelaws

2000, Scotland).

To comply with the Water regulations your attention is drawn to:

The Water Regulations guide published by the Water Regulations

Advisory Service (WRAS) gives full details of the requirements.

In IE the requirements given in the current edition of I.S.813

“Domestic Gas Installations” and the current Building Regulations must be followed.

4.5 Filling the Sealed System

NOTE: The water pressure at the boiler must be at least 1.2bar to enable filling the boiler to a minimum pressure. The boiler is supplied with a filling device.

This filling device is designed to enable the filling and pressurisation of the system in the event of loss of pressure.

4.6 Water Treatment

In the case of an existing installation, it is ESSENTIAL that prior to installing the new boiler the system is thoroughly flushed. For optimum performance after installation of a new system, the boiler and its associated central heating system should also be flushed. Flushing should be carried out in accordance with

BS7593: 1992 using a cleanser such as Sentinel X300 or X400,

Fernox cleanser or Salamander corrosion guard cleaner.

For long-term corrosion protection, after flushing, an inhibitor suitable for aluminium heat exchangers should be used, refer to the current issue of BS 5449 and BS 7593 on the use of inhibitors in central heating systems. Examples are Sentinel X100 Fernox or Salamander corrosion guard inhibitor.

4.7 Draining Points

Draining taps must be provided at the lowest points of the system, which will allow the entire system to be drained.

A drain point for the appliance is provided as an integral part of the hydroblock.

5 Domestic Hot Water System

General - All domestic hot water circuits, connections, fittings must be in accordance with the relevant standards and water supply regulations.

For GB: Guidance G17 to G24 and recommendation R17 to

R24 of the Water Regulations Guide.

For IE: The current edition of I.S.813 “Domestic Gas

Installations”.

5.1 Water Pressure

The circuit should be designed to avoid any unnecessary flow losses (decrease the number of elbows).

The maximum working pressure of the domestic hot water circuit is 10 bar. If the cold water supply pressure exceeds this, then a pressure-reducing valve must be fitted in the supply to the boiler.

The boiler will operate with a minimum supply pressure but with a low flow. Optimum performance will be achieved with a pressure of 1 bar.

5.2 ‘Hard’ Water Areas

The temperatures within the heat exchanger are limited by the boiler control system to minimise scale formation within the hot water pipework. However, in areas where the water is ‘hard’

(i.e. more than 200mg/litre), it is recommended that a scale reducer is fitted.

Refer to the manufacturer’s instructions or consult the local water company for additional advice.

5.3 Domestic Water Flow Rate

The water flow rate is restricted to a maximum 16 l/min by a restrictor fitted during boiler installation,.

NOTE: The pipes from the heating and domestic hot water safety discharge valves must not discharge above an entrance, window or any type of public access area.

8.1 DHW Safety Discharge Valve

Take the short safety discharge tube, union nut and seal, supplied loose in the boiler fittings pack.

This must be extended, using not less than 15mm o.d. pipe, to discharge, in a visible position, outside the building, facing downwards, preferably over a drain.

The pipe must have a continuous fall and be routed to a position so that any discharge of water, possibly boiling, or steam cannot create any danger to persons, damage to property or external electrical components and wiring.

To ease future servicing it is advisable to use a compression type fitting to extend the safety discharge valve tube.

WARNING: Cylinder relief valve connections should not be used for any other purpose.

8.3 Tundish discharge

The internal safety valves, 24 and 36 have been tee’d together and the discharge pipe run so that it exits at the right hand bottom of the boiler ( Block diagram) 11.8.

The tundish (supplied) must be used with this outlet within the normal guidelines and code of practice and must be installed so that it is visible to the occupants and positioned away from any electrical devices.

It is necessary, during installation, to connect a 22 mm diameter metal discharge pipe to a suitable position outside the building.

It is permissible to use copper pipe.

WARNING: The discharge pipe from the tundish should terminate in a safe place where there is no risk to persons in the vicinity of the discharge, be of metal and:

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. discharge pipes between 9m and 18m equivalent resistance length should be at least larger than the nominal outlet size of the safety device, between 18m and 27m at least 3 sizes larger, and so on.

Bends must be taken in to account in calculating the flow resistance.

Have a vertical section of pipe at least 300mm long, below the tundish before any elbows or bends in the pipework.

Be installed with a continuous fall.

Be positioned away from any electrical appliances.

Have discharges visible at both the tundish and the final point of discharge but where this is not possible or practically difficult there should be clear visibility at one or these of these locations.

Examples of acceptance discharge arrangements are:

Ideally below a fixed grating and above the waterseal in a trapped gully.

Downward discharges at a low level; i.e. up to 100mm above external surfaces such as car parks, hard standing, grassed areas etc. are acceptable providing that where children may play or otherwise come in to contact with discharges, a wire cage or similar guard is positioned to prevent contact, whilst maintaining visibility.

Discharges at high level; e.g into metal hopper and metal down pipe with the end of the discharge pipe clearly visible

(tundish visible or not) or into a roof capable of withstanding high temperature discharges of water and 3m from any plastics guttering systems that would collect such discharges (tundish visible).

Where a single pipe serves a number of discharges, such as in blocks of flats, the number served should be limited to not more than 6 systems so that any installation can be traced reasonably easily.

The single common discharge pipe should be least one pipe size larger then the largest individual discharge pipe to be connected.

If unvented hot water storage systems are installed where discharges from safety devices may not be apparent i.e. in dwellings occupied by blind, infirm or disabled people, consideration should be given to the installation of an electronically operated device to warn when discharge takes place.

NOTE: the discharge will consist of scalding water and steam.

Asphalt, roofing felt and non-metallic rainwater goods may be damaged by such discharges.

WARNING: This appliance must be earthed. Incorrect installation can cause electric shock or appliance damage.

This appliance must be wired in accordance with these instructions.

Any fault arising from incorrect wiring cannot be put right under the terms of the Glow-worm guarantee.

All system components must be of an approved type.

Electrical components have been tested to meet the equivalent requirements of the BEAB.

Do not interrupt the mains supply with a time switch or programmer.

Connection of the whole electrical system and any heating system controls to the electrical supply must be through a common isolator.

Isolation should preferably be by a double pole switched fused spur box having a minimum contact separation of 3mm on each pole.

The fused spur box should be readily accessible and preferably adjacent to the boiler. It should be identified as to its use.

8.2 Condensate Drain Connection

Condensate should, if possible, be discharged into the internal household draining system. If this is not practical, discharge can be made externally into the household drainage system or a purpose designed soak away, see diagram 8.4 for more details

Connect the flexible pipe to the condensate drain flexible connection pipe supplied (1). Ensure there is a continual fall of

2.5° (44 mm/m).

(Do not use copper pipes).

It is recommended that any external condensate drain pipe is insulated and also preferably of 32mm diameter, to prevent freezing in adverse weather conditions.

The condensate is discharged periodically in ‘slugs’ by siphonic action.

It is not necessary to provide air breaks or extra traps in the discharge pipe as there is already a trap inside the boiler, see diagram 8.2.

Fitting an extra trap may cause the boiler siphon to work incorrectly.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

The float of the condensate trap also ensures fume tightness.

Therefore, it is not necessary to add water in the condensate trap.

Refer to BS5546 or BS6798 for advice on disposal of boiler condensate.

The fan should start and after a few seconds the ignition will commence.

If the burner fails to light the fan will stop. Initially this may be due to air in the gas supply line. The boiler will automatically have three attempts at ignition.

If necessary turn the reset switch to the off position (0), then back to the on position (I) and the boiler will restart.

After the boiler has lit, allow to warm at MINIMUM temperature setting to purge any air from the system.

NOTE: If the appliance is operated above MINIMUM on initial lighting, there is a possibility that the overheat thermostat will trip and “F5” will be displayed on controls fascia, this is due to air not having been completely purged. See diagram 9.1 for main reset switch.

Once the system has been purged of air turn the Hot water temperature control knob to the desired position and open a hot water tap. The diverter valve motor will move to hot water supply and the display will read system pressure. Check that hot water is available and then close the hot water tap.

Turn the Central heating water temperature control knob to the desired temperature.

The appliance will then continue to fire in central heating until the user controls are satisfied or there is another demand made for hot water.

10.5 Check the Gas Inlet Pressure and Gas

Rate

The supply from the governed meter must be of adequate size to provide a steady inlet working pressure of 20mbar (8in wg) at the boiler. On completion, test the gas installation for tightness using the pressure drop method and suitable leak detection fluid, purge as necessary.

NOTE: Due to the modulating operation of the boiler and the need to check the gas inlet pressure and measure the gas rate at maximum rate, it will be necessary to force it to maximum.

This can be achieved by turning on several hot water taps.

Operational Gas Inlet Pressure

With ALL other gas appliances operating, check the operational supply pressure at the gas service isolation valve test point, see diagram 7.1.

The nominal supply pressure for Natural Gas (G20) is

20mbar.

The nominal supply pressure for LPG (G31) is 37mbar.

Turn the taps and appliances off, then disconnect the pressure gauge.

Additionally the safe nominal maximum heat input of the appliance can be achieved at an inlet pressure down to

15mbar.

NOTE:

The BURNER PRESSURE cannot be measured and is not used to measure the gas rate.

Gas Rate

Make sure that ALL other gas burning appliances and pilot lights are off.

Check the gas rate using the gas meter test dial and stop watch, at least 10 minutes after the burner has lit, see table below for approximate rates.

2. It is the Law that any servicing is carried out by a competent person approved at the time by the Health and Safety Executive.

3. Before commencing with a service or replacement of parts the boiler should be isolated from the electrical supply and the gas supply should be turned off at the gas isolation valve.

4. When replacing a part on this appliance, use only spare parts that you can be assured conform to the safety and performance specification that we require. Do not use reconditioned or copy parts that have not been clearly authorised by Glow-worm.

5. If any electrical connections have been disconnected and after their connection, checks to the earth continuity, polarity, short circuit and resistance to earth must be repeated using a suitable multimeter, as described in section 13.

6. After servicing, complete the relevant Service Interval Record section of the Benchmark Checklist located in the centre pages of this document.

General Inspection

Prior to, during servicing and after any maintenance or changed parts, the following must be checked.

● The integrity of the flue system and flue seals.

● The integrity of the appliance combustion circuit and relevant seals.

● Electrical, gas and water connections.

● System pressure.

● the combustion performance, refer to the following procedure.

● The operational gas inlet pressure and gas rates, refer to the commissioning section paragraph 11.5.

Correct any fault before continuing.

COMPETENCY TO CARRY OUT THE CHECK OF

COMBUSTION PERFORMANCE

NOTE: BS 6798: 2009 Specification for installation and maintenance of gas-fired boilers of rated input not exceeding

70kW net advises that:

● The person carrying out a combustion measurement must be assessed as competent in the use of a flue gas analyser and the interpretation of the results.

● The flue gas analyser used should be one meeting the requirements of BS7927 or BS-EN50379-3 and be calibrated in accordance with the analyser manufacturers’ requirements.

● Competence can be demonstrated by satisfactory completion of the CPA1 ACS assessment, which covers the use of electronic portable combustion gas analysers in accordance with BS 7967, parts 1 to 4.

● Ensure that the gas analyser is set to the correct fuel setting.

NOTE: Safe combustion can only be verified by measuring CO/

CO2 ratio. This must not exceed the value shown in Table 3.

COMBUSTION CHECK AND SETTING THE AIR/GAS

RATIO VALVE

● Remove the front casing panel, see diagram 11.2 and hinge down the control box. Taking care not to touch any internal components, proceed as follows:

● Connect the CO2 combustion analyser to the relevant test point, see diagram 10.1.

1. Maximum rate check and adjustment.

NOTE: To verify the maximum gas rate CO2 setting, the appliance must be checked at the maximum rate first.

With the power off and the appliance cold, unclip the controls fascia and hinge down to reveal the potentiometers on the rear of the user interface, see diagram 10.2.

Take care not to allow the fascia to drop down and damage the wiring. Turn on the electrical supply.

Ensure external controls are calling for heat. The boiler should fire automatically.

Allow the boiler to fire for at least 60 seconds and then, referring to diagram 10.2, rotate the service potentiometer fully clockwise the appliance will operate at maximum rate.

Wait until the CO2 value is stable and check that the value is within the range specified in Table 3.

If the combustion reading is not within the acceptable values

AND the integrity of the complete flue system and combustion circuit seals have been verified and the inlet gas pressure

(and gas rate) have been verified, then it will be necessary to adjust the combustion rate of the appliance.

NOTE: Adjustment is made by turning the gas valve throttle

⅛ of a turn, waiting 1 minute to allow the appliance to stabilise before checking or making further adjustments.

Refer to diagram 10.6 and rotate the “throttle” (anti-clockwise to increase) to the required CO2, see Table 3. On completion, rotate the service potentiometer fully anti-clockwise to resume normal control.

2. Minimum Rate Check and Adjustment.

Now check the minimum gas rate CO2 setting as follows:

With the service potentiometer in the fully anti-clockwise position and appliance running, turn the service potentiometer clockwise to the mid-point or 3 O’clock position. The appliance will now run at minimum rate.

Wait until the CO2 value is stable and check that the value is within the range specified in Table 3. If adjustment is necessary, proceed as follows:-

NOTE: Adjustment of the CO2 at minimum rate is very coarse and should not be adjusted more than ⅛ of a turn at a time. Wait 1 minute to allow the appliance to stabilise before checking or making further adjustments.

Gradually rotate the “offset adjustment” (anti-clockwise to decrease) to the required CO2, refer to Table 3 and diagram

10.6.

On completion, return the service potentiometer to the fully anti-clockwise position.

3. Re-check CO2 and check the CO/CO2

Combustion Ratio.

Re-check the maximum and minimum CO2 values to ensure that they are still within limits.

Check that the CO/CO2 combustion ratio does not exceed the value in Table 3 (*note add value into the table = 0.004).

If the CO/CO2 setting exceeds the value stated then a complete service will be necessary – Refer to section 11.1.
