External Static is the sum of duct loss, plus duct component static. All blowers shall be tested and set at rated speed after being installed in the factory-assembled unit.
Blower(s) shall be forward-curved, centrifugal, Class I or II (depending on application requirements), double width, double inlet, constructed G-90 galvanized steel. Unit shall have a heavy-duty, solid-steel shaft.
Direct drive blower assembly shall consist of a centrifugal backward inclined, non-overloading wheel secured directly to a heavy duty, ball bearing type motor via two set screws. The motor and wheel assembly shall be mounted to a heavy gauge galvanized steel frame. The motor shall be controlled by a variable frequency drive, allowing for variable airflow without the need of belts and pulleys.
Motor & Motor Compartment
Motors shall be heavy-duty ball bearing type and furnished at the specified voltage, phase and enclosure. Motor mounting plate shall be constructed of heavy gauge galvanized steel and shall be designed to provide easy adjustment of the belt tension. Blower motor shall be suitable for operation on _______ volts, _______ cycle, _____ phase power. Blower motor shall be a ______________________ HP motor, Open Drip Proof.
Shaft & Bearings
Shafts shall be precision ground and polished. Heavy duty, pre-lubricated bearings shall be selected for a minimum (L50) life in excess of 200,000 hours of operation at maximum cataloged operating speed. They shall be designed for, and individually tested, specifically for use in air handling applications.
Belts & Drives (Belt Drive Units Only)
Belts shall be oil and heat resistant, non-static, grip-notch type. Drives shall be cast type, precision machined and keyed, and secured attached to the fan and motor shafts. Fan operating speed shall be factory set using adjustable pitch motor pulleys. All drives shall be a minimum of 2 grooves above 2 HP.
The gas burner shall be direct-fired, draw-through type, sized to provide an output of ________ BTU/hr using natural or propane gas at an inlet-supply pressure to the unit of _____ inches water column (7" w.c. minimum).
The burner shall be capable of heating the entire air supply from _____F° to _____F°( ______ degrees F temperature rise). The burner shall burn over its entire length at all times when the system is in operation.
The burner shall have non-clogging, 4302B stainless-steel combustion baffles attached to a ductile aluminum gas-supply section with no moving parts to wear out or fail. The burner shall be capable of 92% combustion efficiency with a maximum turndown ratio of up to 30 to 1.
The gas burner shall be furnished with a pilot package arranged so that the pilot flame lights the burner with instantaneous ignition. Pilot assembly includes a flame rod, spark rod and pilot, which is automatically ignited by ignition transformer. A flame-rod rectification system shall be used to prove pilot and main flame.
Rear access doors will provide complete access to burner and pilot assembly.
Burner profile plates shall be self-adjusting to operate across the complete CFM range of each model heater. Every unit shall be designed for Variable Air Volume capabilities.
All gas equipment should conform to local code requirements. All gas manifold components shall be piped and wired at the factory.
High-gas pressure regulator
TEMPERATURE CONTROL SYSTEMS
Discharge Temperature Control: Use for building exhaust-air replacement to maintain a constant discharge temperature of supply air. The burner flame modulates to compensate for outdoor temperatures. The optional manual SUMMER-OFF/WINTER selector switch and exhaust system interlock controls the heater-blower operation. Supplied with optional remote-control panel with temperature selector dial and SUMMER-OFF/WINTER selector.
Discharge Temperature Control with room override: For building-exhaust air replacement and auxiliary-space heating to maintain a constant supply-air discharge temperature. A room override thermostat raises discharge set point for more heat to maintain room temperature. Discharge temperature probe and room-override thermostat modulate burner flame. Optional SUMMER-OFF/WINTER selector switch and exhaust-system interlock control heater-blower operation. Supplied with optional remote-control panel with temperature-selection dial, SUMMER-OFF/WINTER selector switch and room-override thermostat.
Space Temperature Control: For building exhaust-air replacement with modulated space-temperature control. A modulating space thermostat adjusts burner flame to maintain discharge-air temperature to compensate for changing building heat losses or gains. High- and low-discharge air sensor probes limit maximum and minimum discharge-air temperatures. The optional SUMMER-OFF/WINTER selector switch and exhaust-system interlocks control heater-blower operation. Supplied with optional remote-control panel with SUMMER-OFF/WINTER selector switch and a modulating-room thermostat.
WIRING AND ELECTRICAL
A single point electrical connection shall be supplied. The control circuit voltage shall be 115 volts. A control transformer shall be provided, when required. Wiring in control enclosures shall be in accordance with the National Electrical Code and the local code, as it may affect the installation. Motor starter shall be provided. Starter shall be line voltage, definite purpose type.
Unit(s) shall be complete with all items such as relays, starters, switches, safety controls, conduit and wire as previously mentioned, and as required for proper operation. All factory-mounted controls shall be factory pre-wired to the unit control panel. A safety disconnect switch shall be standard on all units and shall be sized according to the unit.
Unit(s) shall be operated, tested and set at the factory using job-site conditions for electrical and gas input. All operating and safety controls shall be tested and set at the factory. Adjustable or fixed sheaves shall be set for proper RPM at specified conditions. Gas-pressure regulator shall be set for specified burning rate at specified inlet pressure.
SERVICE AND PARTS
