DRYER VENTING REQUIREMENTS
If an Exhaust
The outside end of main vent should have a sweep elbow
ice, or debris such as leaves
A main vent can be used for venting a group of dryers. The
main vent should be sized to remove 5663 I/rain. (200 CFM)
of air per dryer. Large-capacity
lint screens of proper design
may be used in main vent if checked and cleaned frequently.
The room where the dryers are located should have make-up
air equal to or greater than CFM of all the dryers in the room.
Back-draft Damper Kit, Part No. 3391910, is available from
and should be installed in the vent of each
dryer to keep exhausted air from returning
into dryers and to
keep exhaust in balance within main vent. Unobstructed
air openings are required.
Each vent should enter the main vent at an angle pointing in
the direction of the airflow. Vents entering from the opposite
side should be staggered to reduce the exhausted air from
with the other vents.
If main vent travels vertically through the roof, rather than
through wall, install a 180 ° sweep elbow on end of vent at least
2 ft. (610 mm) above surface of roof.
The opening in wall or roof shall have a diameter
1/2" (13 mm)
larger than vent diameter. Vent should be centered in opening.
Do not install
end of vent for best performance.
The maximum angle of each vent entering the main vent
should be no more than 30 °.
Keep air openings free of dry cleaning fluid fumes. Fumes
create acids which, when drawn through the dryer heating
units, can damage dryers and items being dried.
A clean-out cover should be located on the main vent for
periodic cleaning of the vent system.
