WARNING

Improperly connected gas lines may result in fire, explosion, poisonous fumes, toxic gases, asphyxiation or death. Connect gas lines in accordance to national, state, provincial and local codes.

The installation must conform with local building codes or, in the absence of such codes, the National Fuel

Code (NFPA 54) and in conjunction with ANSI Z21.24/CSA 6.10 “Connectors for Gas Appliances”.

Important! Before connecting the gas supply to the burner control box:

• Verify that the heater’s gas type (as listed on the rating plate) matches that of your application.

NOTE: Unless otherwise noted on the rating plate, this infrared heater is designed and orificed to

operate on standard BTU gas. Contact the factory if utilizing non-standard BTU gas.

• Check that the gas piping and service has the capacity to handle the total gas consumption of all

heaters being installed, as well as any other gas appliances being connected to the supply line.

• Check that the main gas supply line is of proper diameter to supply the required fuel pressures.

• If utilizing used pipe, verify that its condition is clean and comparable to a new pipe. Test all gas

supply lines in accordance with local codes.

• Test and confirm that inlet pressures are correct. Refer to the heater rating plate for gas type and

the required minimum and maximum pressures (Chart 3.5). The gas supply pipe must be of

sufficient size to provide the required capacity and inlet pressure to the heater (if necessary,

consult the local gas company). Do not exceed the maximum allowed pressures for the heater,

the space or the gas piping system.
