GAS SUPPLY CONNECTION
Type of Gas
This dryer
is equipped
for use with
natural
gas. It is design-
certified
by CSA International
for LP (propane
and butane)
gases with
appropriate
conversion.
No attempt
shall be made
to convert
dryer from
gas specified
on serial/rating
plate for use
with
a different
gas without
consulting
the serving
gas supplier.
Conversion
must be done
by a qualified
service
technician.
(5as conversion
kit part numbers
are listed
on gas valve burner
base.
Gas Supply
Line
Recommended
Method
Provide a gas supply line of :1/2" (13 mm) rigid (IPS) pipe to
dryer location. Pipe joint compounds that resist action of LP
gas must be used. Do not useTEFLON®t tape. With LP gas,
piping or tubing size can be 1/2" (13 mm) minimum. Usually,
LP gas suppliers determine
size and materials
used in the
system.
Flexible Metal Appliance
Connector
It is recommended
that a new flexible stainless steel gas line,
design-certified
by CSA International,
be used for connecting
the dryer to the gas supply line. (The gas pipe which extends
through the lower rear of the dryer is provided with 3/8"
[10 mm] male pipe thread.)
Gas Supply Pressure Testing
A 1/8" (3 mm) NPT minimum
plugged tapping, accessible for
gauge testing, must be installed immediately
downstream
of
the installed shut-off valve to the dryer (as shown above). The
dryer must be disconnected
from the gas supply piping system
during any pressure testing of the system at test pressures in
excess of 1/2" psig (352 kg/m=).
Alternate
Method
The gas supply may also be connected using 3/8" (10 mm)
approved copper or aluminum
tubing. If the total length of
the supply line is more than 20 ft. (6.1 m), larger tubing will
be required.
If using natural gas, do not use copper tubing. Pipe joint
compounds
that resist action of type of gas supplied must
be used.
Shut-off valve required
The supply line must be equipped with a manual shut-off
valve installed within 6 ft. (1.8 m) of dryer in accordance
with National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1. This valve should
be located in same room as dryer. It should be in a location
that allows ease of opening and closing. Do not block access to
shut-off valve. In Canada, an individual manual shut-off valve
must be installed in accordance with the B149 installation
codes CAN/CGA B149.1 and CAN/CGA B149.2.
NOTE: Do not kink or damage the flexible stainless steel gas
line when moving the dryer.
Rigid Pipe Connection
The rigid pipe connection
requires a combination
of pipe
fittings to obtain an in-line connection to the dryer.
