5 Gas Information

A. Gas Pressure Requirements

B. Gas Connection

Pressure requirements for VRTIKL-AUStoves are shown in Table 1 below.

Two taps are provided on the right hand side of the gas control for a test gauge connection to measure the inlet and outlet pressures. See Section 10: Maintaining and Servicing the Appliance.

The stove and its individual shut-offvalve must be disconnected from the gas supply piping system during any pressure testing of the system at test pressures in excess of 60 mbar.

If the stove must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing an individual shut-offvalve, it must be of thehandle-lesstype.

WARNING

Fire Risk. Explosion Hazard.

High pressure will damage valve.

• Disconnect gas supply piping BEFORE pressure testing gas line at test pressures above 6 kPa.

Close the manual shutoff valve BEFORE pressure testing gas line at test pressures equal to or less than 6kPa..

WARNING

CHECK FOR GAS LEAKS

Explosion Risk

Fire Risk

Asphyxiation Risk

Check all fittings and connections.

Do not use open flame.

After the gas line installation is complete, all connections must be tightened and checked for leaks with a commercially-available,non-corrosiveleak check solution. Be sure

to rinse off all leak check solution following testing.

Fittings and connections may have loosened during shipping and handling.
