DRYER VENTING

Cannot
be Used

directed downward.
12" rain.
(305 ram)*
*Minimum
clearance above
any accumulation
of snow,
ice, or debris such as leaves
24" rain.
(610 ram)
Multiple
Dryer Venting
A main vent can be used for venting
a group
of dryers.
The
main vent should
be sized to remove
5663
I/min.
(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
your
distributor
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
return
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
interfering
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 screening over 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.
