1.3Warranty

Bradford White’s Brute Magnum appliances

are covered by a limited warranty. The owner should fill out the warranty registration card and return it to Bradford White.

All warranty claims must be made to an authorized Bradford White representative or directly to the factory. Claims must include the 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.

1.4Dimensions

The overall dimensions are 34.5" (88cm)

wide, 65.75" (167cm) tall, 55" (140cm) deep. Other dimensions can be found in Figure 1.

1.5Locating the Appliance

The Brute Magnum is for indoor installations

only.

The appliance should be located to provide clearances on all sides for maintenance and inspection. It should not be located in an area where leakage of any connections will result in damage to the area adjacent to the appliance or to lower floors of the structure.

When such a location is not available, it is recommended that a suitable drain pan, adequately drained, be installed under the appliance.

The appliance is design certified by CSAInternational for installation on combustible flooring; in basements; in closets, utility rooms or alcoves.

Brute Magnum Boilers or Water Heaters must never be installed on carpeting. The location for the

appliance should be chosen with regard to the vent pipe lengths and external plumbing. The unit shall be installed such that the gas ignition system components are protected from water (dripping, spraying, rain, etc.) during operation and service (circulator replacement, control replacement, etc.). When vented vertically, the Brute Magnum must be located as close as practical to a chimney or gas vent. If the vent terminal and/

or combustion air terminal terminate through a wall, and there is potential for snow accumulation in the local area, both terminals should be installed at an appropriate level above grade.

The dimensions and requirements that are shown in Table 1 should be met when choosing the locations for the appliance:

Table 1. Clearances.

1.6 Locating Pump-MountedWater Heater with Respect to Storage Tank(s)

For best results the Brute Magnum water heater should be located within 15 feet (4.6m) of the storage tank(s). The pump is sized for 30 feet (9.1m) of piping.

Water heater pumps are sized for water hardness; 7.6 to 17 grains per gallon for normal water, greater than 17 grains per gallon for hard water, and 1 to

7.5 grains per gallon for soft water. If the appliance must be installed with longer piping runs, then larger diameter pipe or tubing may be able to be used, in some instances. Consult the factory for assistance.

1.7 Locating Pump-MountedBoiler with Respect to Return/Supply Header

Brute Magnum units must be piped in primarysecondary fashion because of the internal pump and mixing system.

For the best results the Brute Magnum Boiler should be located within 15 feet (4.6m) of the supply and return headers. The pump is sized for 30 feet (9.1m) of piping, in most cases, enough for primarysecondary piping systems.

If the appliance must be installed with longer piping runs, then larger diameter tubing may be able to be used, in some instances. Consult the factory for assistance.

Section 2

VENTING AND COMBUSTION AIR

2.1Combustion Air

Brute Magnum boilers and water heaters must

have provisions for combustion and ventilation air in accordance with the applicable requirements for Combustion Air Supply and Ventilation in the

National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223 1; or in Canada, the Natural Gas and Propane Installation Code, CSA B149.1. All applicable provisions of local building codes must also be adhered to.

A Brute Magnum unit can take combustion air from the space in which it is installed, or the combustion air can be ducted directly to the unit. Ventilation air must be provided in either case.

2.1.1 Combustion Air From Room

In the United States, the most common requirements specify that the space shall communicate with the outdoors in accordance with method 1 or 2, which follow. Where ducts are used, they shall be of the same cross-sectionalarea as the free area of the openings to which they connect.

Method 1: Two permanent openings, one commencing within 12" (300mm) of the top and one commencing within 12" (300mm) of the bottom, of the enclosure shall be provided. The openings shall communicate directly, or by ducts, with the outdoors or spaces that freely communicate with the outdoors. When directly communicating with the outdoors, or when communicating to the outdoors through vertical ducts, each opening shall have a minimum free area of 1 square inch per 4000 Btu/hr (550 square mm/kW) of

total input rating of all equipment in the enclosure. When communicating to the outdoors through horizontal ducts, each opening shall have a minimum free area of not less than 1square inch per 2000 Btu/hr (1100 square mm/kW) of total input rating of all equipment in the enclosure.

Method 2: One permanent opening, commencing within 12" (300mm) of the top of the enclosure, shall be permitted. The opening shall directly communicate with the outdoors or shall communicate through a vertical or horizontal duct to the outdoors or spaces that directly communicate with the outdoors and shall have a minimum free area of 1square inch per 3000 Btu/hr (734 square mm/kW) of the total input rating of all equipment located in the enclosure. This opening must not be less than the sum of the areas of all vent connectors in the confined space.

Other methods of introducing combustion and ventilation air are acceptable, providing they conform to the requirements in the applicable codes listed above.

In Canada, consult local building and safety codes or, in absence of such requirements, follow CAN/CGA B149.

2.1.2 Intake Combustion Air

The combustion air can be taken through the wall, or through the roof. When taken from the wall, it must be taken from out-of-doorsby means of the horizontal wall terminal, shown in Table 3. See Table 2 to select the appropriate diameter air pipe. When taken from the roof, afield-suppliedrain cap or an elbow arrangement must be used to prevent entry of rain water (see Figure 2).

Figure 2. Combustion Air and Vent Through Roof.

Use single-wallgalvanized pipe for the combustion air intake (see Table 4), sized per Section 1.8. Route the intake to the heater as directly as possible. Seal all joints with tape. Provide adequate hangers. The unit must not support the weight of the combustion air intake pipe. Maximum linear pipe length allowed is 50 feet (15.2m). Up to five elbows can be used with the 50 feet of pipe. Subtract 10 allowable linear feet for every additional elbow used.

The connection for the intake air pipe is in the back of the unit. Take the plate off the back to reveal the collar on the filter box. Run a bead of silicone around the collar and slide the pipe over the collar. Secure with sheet metal screws.

Table 4. Required Combustion Air Piping Material.

In addition to air needed for combustion, air shall also be supplied for ventilation, including all air required for comfort and proper working conditions for personnel. The Brute Magnum loses less than 1 percent of its input rating to the room, but other heat sources may be present.

2.2Venting

The Brute Magnum is a Category IV appliance

and must be installed with a stainless steel venting system that complies with the UL 1738 Standard (see Table 5). It must be installed per this installation manual and the venting system manufacturer’s Installation Instructions. The unit’s vent can terminate through the roof, or through an outside wall. It can be installed through walls that are from 3" (7.6cm) to 12" (30cm) in thickness.

See Table 2 to select the appropriate vent pipe diameter. The vent pipe must be pitch upward, toward the vent terminal, so that condensate will run back to the Brute Magnum, to drain. Route the vent pipe to the heater as directly as possible. Seal all joints and provide adequate hangers as required in the venting system manufacturer’s Installation Instructions. Horizontal portions of the venting system must be supported to prevent sagging and may not have any low sections that could trap condensate. The unit must not support the weight of the vent pipe. Horizontal runs must slope upwards not less than ¼ inch per foot (21mm/m) from the unit to the vent terminal. Up to five elbows can be used with the 50 feet (15.2m) of pipe. Subtract 10 allowable linear feet for every additional elbow used.

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT COMMON VENTING:

A single vent that is shared by multiple Brute Magnum units MUST be engineered by a competent venting specialist, and involves the selection of draft inducing equipment, hardware and controls to properly balance flue gas pressures. Do not common vent

Brute Magnum units unless the vent system meets this requirement. Brute Magnum units are never permitted to share a vent with Category I appliances.

A condensate drain is built into the Brute Magnum. A pressure switch monitors the condensate drain pan, and will trip if the condensate level gets too high. This will prevent the Brute Magnum from firing if there is a blockage or overflow.

Connect a clear plastic tube, minimum 3/8" diameter, between the drain connection and a floor drain (or condensate pump if a floor drain is not accessible).

Caution

Condensate is mildly acidic, and may harm some floor drains and/or pipes, particularly those that are metal. Ensure that the drain, drainpipe,

and anything that will come in contact with the condensate can withstand the acidity, or neutralize the condensate before disposal. Damage caused by failure to install a neutralizer kit or to adequately treat condensate will not be the manufacturer’s responsibility.

A neutralizer kit is available from Bradford White. The kit includes a condensate pump.

The condensate tray must be primed before starting the unit. Fill the tray with water through the exhaust vent connection on the back of the unit. Continue filling until water flows out of the condensate drain port. This prevents the flue gases from escaping through the condensate drain. The condensate drain must be installed so as to prevent accumulation of condensate. When a condensate pump is not used, the tubing must continuously slope downward (except for the trap loop) toward the drain with no spiraling.

Consult local codes for disposal method.
