electrically grounded in accordance with local codes or, in the
absence of local codes, with the National Electrical Code ANSI/
NFPA 70, or Canadian Electrical Code, CSA C22.1.
Copies of the standards listed above may be obtained from:
CSA International
8501 East Pleasant Valley Rd.
Cleveland, Ohio 44131-5575
National Fire Protection Association
One Batterymarch Park
Quincy, Massachusetts 02269
A. 3 prong ground plug
B. 3-prong polarized type outdoor outlet
C. Ground prong

Gas Supply Requirements

Explosion Hazard
Use a new CSA International approved "outdoor"
gas supply line.
Securely tighten all gas connections.
If connected to LP, have a qualified person make sure
gas pressure does not exceed 11" (28 cm) water
Examples of a qualified person include:
licensed heating personnel,
authorized gas company personnel, and
authorized service personnel.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
Observe all governing codes and ordinances.
IMPORTANT: This installation must conform with all local codes
and ordinances. In the absence of local codes, installation must
conform with American National Standard, National Fuel Gas
Code ANSI Z223.1 - latest edition or CAN/CGA B149.1 - latest
IMPORTANT: The infrared sear burner must be connected to a
regulated gas supply.
Refer to the model/serial rating plate for information on the type
of gas that can be used. If this information does not agree with
the type of gas available, check with your local gas supplier.
Gas Conversion:
No attempt shall be made to convert the infrared sear burner
from the gas specified on the model/serial rating plate for use
with a different gas type without consulting the serving gas
supplier. The conversion kits specified must be used.
Gas Pressure Regulator
The gas pressure regulator supplied with this infrared sear burner
must be used. The inlet (supply) pressure to the regulator should
be as follows for proper operation:
LP Gas:
Set pressure: 11" (27.9 cm) WCP
Inlet (supply) pressure: 11" to 14" (27.9 cm to 35.5 cm) WCP
Natural Gas:
Set pressure: 4" (10.2 cm) WCP
Inlet (supply) pressure: 7" to 14" (17.8 cm to 35.5 cm)
WCP maximum.
Contact local gas supplier if you are not sure about the inlet
(supply) pressure.
Burner Requirements for High Altitude
Input ratings shown on the model/serial rating plate are for
elevations up to 2,000 ft (609.6 m).
For elevations above 2,000 ft (609.6 m), ratings are reduced at a
rate of 4% for each 1,000 ft (304.8 m) above sea level. Orifice
conversion is required. See "Assistance or Service" section to
Gas Supply Line Pressure Testing
Testing above ½ psi (3.5 kPa) or 14" (35.5 cm) WCP (gauge):
The infrared sear burner and its individual shutoff valve must be
disconnected from the gas supply piping system during any
pressure testing of that system at test pressures greater than
½ psig (3.5 kPa).
Testing below ½ psi (3.5 kPa) or 14" (35.5 cm) WCP (gauge) or
The infrared sear burner must be isolated from the gas supply
piping system by closing its individual manual shutoff valve
during any pressure testing of the gas supply piping system at
test pressures equal to or less than ½ psig (3.5 kPa).
Natural Gas:
Infrared sear burners are equipped for use with Natural gas. They
are design-certified by CSA International for LP (propane or
butane) gases with appropriate conversion.
Infrared sear burners are set for Natural gas use and have a
pressure regulator with
" (1.3 cm) female pipe threads.
A. Rear side of burner
B. " (1.3 cm) sear burner gas pipe
C. New CSA approved outdoor flexible gas supply line
