These boilers are available in two configurations; the BJVT has a thermocouple/continuous burning pilot, and the BJVS has an electronic intermittent ignition device (I.I.D.). Look for the model designation on the rating plate, which can be found on top of the boiler in the right rear corner.

The automatic vent dampers are standard on all U.S. and Canadian models. The side wall power venters can be used on both BJVS and BJVT models. Special instructions for their installation are included in the vent damper and power venter package. Read them carefully before installation.

1.2 Warranty

Model BJV boilers are covered by a limited warranty. The owner should fill out the warranty registration card and return it to .

All warranty claims must be made to an authorized representative or directly to the factory. Claims must include the boiler serial number and model (this information can be found on the

rating plate), installation date, and name of the installer. Shipping costs are not included in the warranty coverage.

Some accessory items are shipped in separate packages. Verify receipt of all packages listed on the packing slip. Inspect everything for damage immediately upon delivery, and advise the carrier of any shortages or damage. Any such claims should be filed with the carrier. The carrier, not the shipper, is responsible for shortages and damage to the shipment whether visible or concealed.

The warranty does not cover damage caused by improper assembly installation, operation or field modification.

1.3 Codes and Standards

The BJV Hydronic Boiler (or Brute Mini) is design certified by CSA (Canadian Standards Association) as complying with the latest edition of the “Standard for Gas Fired Low Pressure Steam and Hot Water Boilers”, ANSI Z21.13 in the USA and CAN1-4.9in Canada.

All boilers must be installed in accordance with the local building and installation codes as per the utility or authorities having jurisdiction. All local codes take precedence over national codes.

In the absence of local codes, refer to the following national codes for installation:

1.In the United States, the latest edition of "The National Fuel and Gas Code", ANSI Z223.1. Specifically, refer to Chapter 10, "Venting of Equipment".

2.In Canada, the latest edition of "The Installation Codes for Gas Burning appliances and Equipment", CSA B149.1.

Any changes to the boiler, gas controls, gas orifices, wiring, draft diverter, or improper installation may void the warranty. If change is required to any of the above, consult the factory.

1.4 Technical Assistance

2.2 Field Assembly

1.Brute Mini boilers have built-indraft diverter for natural draft operation.

2.Find the vent damper box which is located in the boiler package.

3.Install the vent damper directly to the top of the draft diverter outlet with the damper operator facing to the front of the boiler, and with the flow direction arrow pointing upward. Use the vent damper wire harness provided with the boiler to connect the vent damper to the boiler. The bracket end of the harness should be connected to the vent damper actuator.

4.For Model BJVS only: Install the metal plug provided with the vent damper onto the damper plate hole. Disregard the metal plug in case of standing (continuous) pilot boilers. For all

BJVT models, the damper plate hole should never be blocked.

5.Do not modify the automatic vent damper device. It is very important that no other vents are closed. Provide at least six inches clearance between the automatic vent damper and combustible construction, and be sure to allow access for servicing the damper.

6.Install the temperature/pressure gauge provided in the parts box.

2.3.2 Flooring

The boiler shall be installed on a level floor of noncombustible construction or onfire-resistantslabs or arches. Noncombustible flooring is defined as flooring material and surface finish not capable of being ignited and burning and with no combustible materials against the underside. Acceptable materials are those consisting entirely of a combination of steel, iron, brick, tile, concrete, slate, glass or plaster.Do not install the heater directly on a combustible wood or carpet floor without placing a noncombustible platform between the floor and the heater.

The boiler can be installed on a combustible floor if a noncombustible base assembly, available from , is used. See the boiler rating plate or the Parts List (Section 11) of this manual for the appropriate base part number. Boilers must never be installed directly on carpeting.

As an alternative to the noncombustible base plate, in the United States, the National Fuel Gas Code allows a heater to be placed on a combustible surface when there is a platform under the heater made of hollow masonry no less than 4 inches (102 millimeters [mm]) thick, covered with sheet metal at least 24 gauge thick and extending beyond the full width and depth of the heater by at least 12 inches (305mm) in all directions. The masonry must be laid with ends unsealed, and joints matched to provide free circulation of air from side to side through the masonry (see Figure 4). If the boiler is installed in a carpeted alcove, the entire floor of the alcove must be covered by a noncombustible platform.

*Area indicated is for one of two openings; one at floor level and one at the ceiling, so the total net free area would be double the figures indicated. For special conditions, refer to NFPA54 ANSI Z223.1. In Canada refer to the National Standard CSA B149.1 which differs from this table.

NOTE: Check with louver manufacturers for Net Free Area of louvers. Correct for screen resistance to the Net Free Area if a screen is installed. Check all local codes applicable to combustion air.

Table 2. Minimum Recommended

Air Supply to Boiler Room.

Important: See gas piping selection chart, Table 3 for gas line sizing. In all cases, pipe size is larger than inlet connection on heater. Run pipe size shown in chart and reduce at heater inlet.

Outside Air Supply: When combustion air is supplied directly through an outside wall, each opening should have a minimum free area of one square inch per 4,000 BTU/h (1.2kW) input of the total input rating of all appliances in the enclosed area.

If air is provided through horizontal ducts, each opening and duct must provide one square inch of flow area for each 2000 BTU/h (0.6 kW). These requirements are summarized in Table 2. Note that the required size of openings shall be based on the net free area of each opening. Where the free area of louver or grille is known it shall be used in calculating the effective free area. Where the free area are not known, it shall be assumed that wood louvers will have 25 percent free area, and metal louvers and grilles will have 75 percent free area.

Inside Air Supply: When combustion is supplied from inside the building, each opening should have a minimum free area of one square inch per 1,000 BTU/h (0.3kW) input of the total input rating of all appliances in the enclosed area. These openings should never be less than 100 square inches

(645 sq. cm).

Note: In Canada, follow Canadian Standard, CSAB149.1 or local codes.

Exhaust Fans or Vents: Any equipment which exhausts air from the boiler room can deplete the combustion air supply or reverse the natural draft action of the venting system. This could cause flue products to accumulate in the boiler room. Additional air must be supplied to compensate for such exhaust.

The information in Table 2 is not applicable in installations where exhaust fans or blowers of any type are used. Such installations must be designed by qualified engineers.

If a blower or fan is used to supply air to the boiler room, the installer should make sure it does not create drafts which could cause nuisance shutdowns of the pilot. If a blower is necessary to provide adequate combustion air to the boiler, a suitable switch or equivalent must be wired into the boiler control circuit to prevent the boiler from firing unless the blower is operating.

The boiler must be completely isolated and protected from any source of corrosive chemical fumes such as those emitted by trichlorethylene, perchlorethylene, chlorine, etc.

WARNING

Do not store any chemical, cleaners, or other corrosive material near combustion air openings or in the room. Avoid locating dryer vents in the vicinity of combustion air openings. Failure to prevent corrosive materials from mixing with combustion air can result in reduced boiler life and unsafe boiler operation.

AVERTISSEMENT

N’entrepposer aucun produit chimique, produit nettoyant ou produit corrosif à proximité des bouches d’air de combustion ou dans la pièce. Éviter de placer des tuyaux de ventilation pour sécheuse à proximité des bouches d’air de combustion. Le fait de laisser des maitières corrosives se mélanger à l’air de combustion risque de réduire le cycle de vie de l’appareil de chauffage et de compromettre son fonctionnement.

3.2 Exhaust Venting

Vent piping must be of the same or larger diameter as the vent damper or draft diverter outlet. The only correct procedure for vent pipe sizing is to do so in accordance with Table 3 and the applicable installation code as stated in the following warning.

Page 8

BRADFORDWHITECORP.

 

 

WARNING

Vent pipe diameter must be as required by the National fuel Gas Code Z223.1 or the Canadian Installation Codes for Gas Appliances CSA-B149.1.Undersize pipe can result in inadequate venting and oversize pipe can result in vent condensation. In either case the result can be release of combustion products to the indoors. This can cause serious injury or death by carbon monoxide poisoning or asphyxiation.

AVERTISSEMENT

Le diamètre des tuyaux de ventilation doit répondre aux exigences du National Fuel Gas Code Z223.1 ou du code canadien des installations des appareils à gaz CSA B149.1. Des tuyaux trop petits rispquent d’entraîner une ventilation inadéquate et des tuyaux trop gros risquent de provoquer une condensation dans les tuyaux. Dans un cas comme dans l’autre, des produits de combustion risquent de s’échapper dans le bâtiment et causer des blessures graves ou l’asphyxie par le monoxyde de carbone.

Table 3. Exhaust Vent Connection Size.

3.3Vent Pipe Sizing and General Installation

All vent installations and boiler stacking must be designed and installed in accordance with all local, state or provincial codes and with:

1.Chapter 7, “Venting of Equipment” of the national Fuel Gas Code, ANSI 223.1 latest edition, or the applicable provisions of the local building codes.

2.In Canada, CSA-B149.1.

The draft diverter outlet is to be connected to an

unobstructed vent pipe of the same or larger diameter, terminating outside the building. The vent pipe must have a listed vent cap and extend at least two feet above any object with a ten foot radius. All connections should be made with rustproof sheet metal screws.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not use sheet metal screws at the snap lock joints of Type B gas vents.

Do not weld or fasten the vent pipe to the boiler draft diverter. The weight of the stack must not rest on the boiler. The draft diverter and boiler top must be easily removable for normal boiler service and inspection.

Avoid horizontal runs of the vent pipe, and 90° elbows, reductions and restrictions. Horizontal runs should have at least a 1/4" rise per foot (20mm per meter) in the direction of flow. A vent connector shall be supported for the design and weight of the material employed to maintain clearances and prevent physical damage and separation of joints.

Avoid terminating boiler vents near air conditioning or air supply fans. The fans can pick up exhaust flue products from the boiler and return them inside the building, creating a possible health hazard. Do not located the vent terminal where flue products could strike against building materials and cause degradation.

Always use double-wallor insulated vent pipe when used as a chimney (Type B or equivalent). In cold weather, uninsulated outside vents can chill the rising flue products, blocking the natural draft action of the venting system. This can create a health hazard by spilling flue products into the boiler room. Use engineered venting tables acceptable to the authority having jurisdiction to size the venting pipe or liner.

Avoid oversize vent piping or extremely long runs of the pipe which may cause excessive cooling and condensation.

Before connecting a vent connector to a chimney, the chimney passageway shall be examined to ascertain that it is clear and free of obstructions. When inspection reveals that an existing chimney is not safe for the intended application, it shall be rebuilt to conform to nationally recognized standards (see National Building Code or ANSI/NFPA 211), lined or relined with a suitable liner, or replaced with a vent or chimney suitable for the equipment to be attached.

3.4Common Venting Systems

3.4.1 Venting Multiple Appliances

When common venting BJVS or BJVT natural draft boilers with other appliances through one shared duct called a “common vent”, special care must be taken by the installer to ensure safe operation. In the event that the common vent is blocked, it is possible, especially for fan-assisteddevices, to vent backwards throughnon-operatingappliances sharing the vent, allowing combustion products to infiltrate occupied spaces.If the appliances are allowed to operate in this condition, serious injury or death may occur.

WARNING

Operation of appliances with a blocked common vent may lead to serious injury or death. Safety devices must be implemented to prevent blocked common vent operation. If safe operation of all appliances connected to a common vent cannot be assured, including prevention of spillage of flue gasses into living spaces, common venting should not be applied, and appliances should each be vented separately.

AVERTISSEMENT

Le fonctionnement des appareils avec un système d’évacuation bloqué peut provoquer des blessures graves, voire la mort. Des dispositifs de sécurité doivent être installés pour éviter le blocage des systèmes d’évacuation. Si le fonctionnement de tous les appareils connectés à un système d’évacuation commun ne peut pas être assuré, y compris la prévention de la dispersion des gaz toxiques dans les espaces habités, on ne devrait pas installer un système d’évacuation commun et chaque appareil devrait être ventilé séparément.

It is for this reason that, in addition to following proper vent sizing, construction and safety requirements from the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1 or in Canada, from CSA B149.1 as well as all applicable local codes, it is required that installers provide some means to prevent operation with a blocked common vent. It is suggested that a blocked vent safety system be employed such that if the switch from one appliance trips due to excessive stack spill or backpressure indicating a blocked vent condition, that all appliances attached to the vent be locked out and prevented from operating. As an additional precaution, it is recommended that a Carbon Monoxide (CO) alarm be installed in all enclosed spaces containing combustion appliances. If assistance is required in determining how a blocked vent safety system should be connected to a product, please call Applications Engineering (see back cover for info).

Refer to the installation and operating instructions on all appliances to be common vented for instructions, warnings, restrictions and safety requirements. If safe operation of all appliances connected to a common vent cannot be assured, including prevention of spillage of flue gasses into living spaces, common venting should not be applied, and appliances should each be vented separately.

3.4.2 Inspection of Commonly Vented Appliances

If the instrumentation of this boiler replaces an older boiler in a common vent system with other appliances, or if you remove additional appliances from the common vent, all the appliances must be checked for proper venting.

At the time of removal of an existing boiler, the following steps shall be followed with each appliance remaining connected to the common venting system placed in operation, while the other appliances remaining connected to the common venting system are not in operation.

1.Seal any unused openings in the common venting system.

Sceller toutes les ouvertures non utilisées du système d’évacuation.

2.Visually inspect the venting system for proper size and horizontal pitch and determine there is no blockage or restriction, leakage, corrosion and other deficiencies which could cause an unsafe condition.

Inspecter de façon visuelle le système d’évacuation pour déterminer la grosseur et l’inclinaison horizontale qui conviennent et s’assurer que le système est exampt d’obstruction, d’étranglement, de fuite, de corrosion et autres défaillances qui pourraient présenter des risques.

3.Insofar as it is practical, close all building doors and windows and all doors between the space in which the appliances remaining connected to the common venting system are located and other spaces of the building. Turn on clothes dryers and any appliance not connected to the common venting system. Turn on any exhaust fans, such as range hoods and bathroom exhausts, so they will operate at maximum speed. Do not operate a summer exhaust fan. Close fireplace dampers.

Dans la mesure du possible, fermer toutes les portes et les fenêtres du bâtiment et toutes les portes entre l’espace où les appareils toujours raccordés au système d’évacuation sont installés et les autres espaces du bùtiment. Mettre en marche les sécheuses, tous les appareils non raccordés au systéme d’évacuation commun et tous les ventilateurs d’extraction comme les hottes de cuisinière et les ventilateurs des salles de bain. S’assurer que ces ventilateurs fonctionnent à la vitesse maximale. Ne pas faire fonctionner les ventilateurs d’été. Fermer les registres des cheminées.

4.Place in operation the appliance being inspected. Follow the lighting instructions. Adjust thermostat so appliance will operate continuously.

Mettre l’appareil inspecté en marche. Suivre les instructions d’allumage. Régler le thermostat de façon que l’appareil fonctionne de façon continue.

5.Test for spillage at the draft hood relief opening after 5 minutes of main burner operation. Use the

flame of a match or candle, or smoke from a cigarette, cigar or pipe.

Faire fonctionner le brûleur principal pendant 5 min ensuite, déterminer si le coupe-tiragedéborde à l’ouverture de décharge. Utiliser la flamme d’une allumette ou d’une chandelle ou la fumée d’une cigarette, d’une cigare ou d’une pipe.

6.After it has been determined that each appliance remaining connected to the common venting system properly vents when tested as outlined above, return doors, windows, exhaust fans, fireplace dampers and any other gas burning appliance to their previous conditions of use.

Une fois qu’il a été déterminé, selon la méthode inidquée ci-dessus,que chaque appareil raccordé au système d’évacuation est mis à l’air libre de façon adéquate. Remettre les portes et les fenêtres, les ventilateurs, les registres de cheminées et les appareils au gaz à leur position originale.

7.Any improper operation of the common venting system should be corrected so the installation conforms with the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1. When resizing any portion of the common venting system, the common venting system should be resized to approach the minimum size as determined using the appropriate tables in Appendix G in the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1.

Tout mauvais fonctionnement du système d’évacuation commun devrait être corrigé de façon que l’installation soit conforme au national Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1 et (ou) aux codesd}installation CSA-B149.1.Si la grosseur d’une section du système d’évacuation doit être modifiée, le système devrait être modifié pour respecter les valeurs minimales des tableaux pertinents de l’appendices F duNational Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z2231.1 et (ou) des codesd}installation CSA-B149.1.
