INSTALLATION

NOTICE

Installation must conform with local codes, or in the absence of local codes, with the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1, Natural Gas Installation Code, CAN/CGA-B149.1, or thePropane Installation Code, CAN/CGA-B149.2, as applicable.

NOTICE

These installation procedures must be followed by qualified personnel or warranty will be void.

Local codes regarding installation vary greatly from one area to another. The National Fire Protection Association, Inc. states in its NFPA 96 latest edition that local codes are the “authority having jurisdiction” when it comes to installation requirements for equipment.

Step 1: Unpack

IMMEDIATELY INSPECT FOR SHIPPING DAMAGE

All containers should be examined for damage before and during unloading. The freight carrier has assumed responsibility for safe transit and delivery. If damaged equipment is received, either apparent or concealed, a claim must be made with the delivering carrier.

Apparent damage or loss must be noted on the freight bill at the time of delivery. The freight bill must then be signed by the carrier representative (Driver). If the bill is not signed, the carrier may refuse the claim. The carrier can supply the necessary forms.

A request for inspection must be made to the carrier within 15 days if there is concealed damage or loss that is not apparent until after the equipment is uncrated. The carrier should arrange an inspection. Be certain to hold all contents plus all packing material.

1.Uncrate carefully. Report any hidden damage to the freight carrier IMMEDIATELY.

2.Do not remove any tags or labels until unit is installed and working properly.

Step 2: Install Flue Riser

The flue riser assembly is packed separately in the fryer shipping crate. Attach the flue riser to the top rear of the fryer (see illustration on page 7).

Step 3: Install the Legs (or Casters) and Restraints

 

 

A set of legs or casters is packed with the fryer. A threaded pad is fastened to the base frame at each corner

 

(see illustration on page 7). Each leg or caster has a similar mating thread. When casters have been

 

ordered, the casters are provided with a Zerk fitting for proper lubrication when required.

 

1.

Raise fryer sufficiently to allow legs or casters to be screwed into the pads. For safety, “shore up” and

 

 

support the fryer with an adequate blocking arrangement strong enough to support the load.

INSTALLATION

2.

Screw the four legs or casters to the pads on the bottom of the fryer. When casters have been ordered,

 

screwed in or out to lower or raise each corner of the fryer.

For fryers having casters, tighten the lock

 

 

the casters having a locking-brakeshould be attached under the front of the fryer.

 

3.

Lower the fryer gently. Never drop or allow the fryer to fall.

 

 

4.

Use a level to make sure that the fryer is level. Each caster, or the tubular-endof each leg, can be

 

 

nuts after the unit has been leveled.

 

 

5.

Attach restraints as required by local codes.

 

NOTICE

Unit must be level to assure maximum performance. Improper leveling may void warranty.

NOTICE

Adequate restraining means must be attached to rear of appliance when installed. Installation must conform to local codes as applicable.

!WARNING

If disconnection of the restraint is necessary to move the appliance for cleaning, etc., reconnect it when the appliance is moved to its original installed position.

!WARNING

For an appliance equipped with casters, the installation shall be made with a connector that complies with the Standard for Connectors for Movable Gas Appliances, ANSI Z21.69 or Connectors for Moveable Gas Appliances, CAN/CGA-6.16,and aquick-disconnectdevice that complies with the Standard forQuick-Disconnect Devices for Use With Gas Fuel, ANSI Z21.41, orQuick Disconnect Devices for Use with Gas Fuel, CAN1-6.9.Adequate means must be provided to limit the movement of the appliance without depending on the connector and thequick-disconnectdevice or its associated piping to limit the appliance movement.

!WARNING

All GFS Series Fryers must be restrained to prevent tipping in order to avoid the splashing of hot liquid. The means of restraint may be the manner of installation, such as connection to a battery of appliances or installing the fryer in an alcove, or by separate means, such as adequate ties.

INSTALLATION

Step 4: Check Clearances and Ventilation

Select a firm, level location for your Southbend fryer. Leave clearance, whenever possible, so that access from the rear is possible to permit cleaning. If the unit is to be set on non-combustibleflooring, such as a concrete slab, 3 inches minimum toe room must be provided to prevent restriction of the air opening in the bottom of the unit.

! WARNING

There must be adequate clearance between fryer(s) and construction. Clearance must also be provided in front for servicing and for operation.

Minimum Clearances:

 

From Combustible Construction

From Non-CombustibleConstruction

Sides

7"

0"

Rear

7"

0"

ALL GFS SERIES FRYERS SHALL BE INSTALLED WITH AT LEAST A 16 INCH SPACE BETWEEN THE FRYER AND SURFACE FLAMES FROM ADJACENT EQUIPMENT.

No additional side and rear clearance is required for service as the fryer is serviceable from the front.

! WARNING

Improper ventilation can result in personal injury or death. Ventilation that fails to properly remove flue products can cause headaches, drowsiness, nausea, or could result in death.

All units must be installed in such a manner that the flow of combustion and ventilation air is not obstructed. Provisions for adequate air supply must also be provided. Do NOT obstruct the bottom front of the unit, as combustion air enters through this area. Be sure to inspect and clean the ventilation system according to the ventilation equipment manufacturer’s instructions.

NOTICE

Proper ventilation is the owner’s responsibility. Any problem due to improper ventilation will not be covered by the warranty.

Due to the variety of problems that can be caused by outside weather conditions, venting by canopies or wall fans is preferred over any type of direct venting. It is recommended that a canopy extend 6" past the appliance and the bottom edge be located 6'6" from the floor. Filters should be installed at an angle of 45° or more from the horizontal. This position prevents dripping of grease and facilitates collecting the run-offgrease in a drip pan, unusually installed with a filter. A strong exhaust fan tends to create a vacuum in the room and may interfere with burner performance or may extinguish pilot flames. Fresh air openings approximately equal to the fan area will relieve such a vacuum. In case of unsatisfactory performance on any appliance, check the appliance with the exhaust fan in the “OFF” position. Do this only long enough to check equipment performance, then turn hood back on and let it run to remove any exhaust that may have accumulated during the test.

The exhaust fan should be installed at least 2 feet above the vent opening at the top of the fryer. This unit is not intended to be connected directly to an outside flue.

Step 5: Gas Connection

A 3/4" male NPT line for the gas connection is located near the lower left rear corner of the fryer (see illustration on page 7). The serial plate (located inside the front door of the fryer) indicates the type of gas the unit is equipped to burn (natural gas or propane). The fryer should be connected ONLY to the type of gas for which it is equipped.

A millivoltage circuit diagram is located inside the front door of the fryer.

All Southbend equipment is adjusted at the factory; however, pilot height should be checked at installation and adjusted, if necessary (see page 22).

For orifice sizes and pressure regulator settings, see the chart on page 5. If the fryer is being installed at over 2,000 feet altitude and that information was not specified when ordered, contact the appropriate authorized Southbend Service Representative or the Southbend Service Department. Failure to install with proper orifice sizing will result in poor performance and may void the warranty.

If applicable, the vent line from the gas appliance pressure regulator shall be installed to the outdoors in accordance with local codes or, in the absence of local codes, with the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1,Natural Gas Installation Code, CAN/CGA-B149.1,or thePropane Installation Code, CAN/CGAB149.2, as applicable.

An adequate gas supply is imperative. Undersized or low pressure lines will restrict the volume of gas necessary for satisfactory performance. A combination gas valve and pressure regulator, which is provided with each unit, is set to maintain a 4" W.C. manifold pressure for natural gas or 10.0" W.C. manifold pressure for propane gas. However, to maintain these conditions the pressure on the supply line, when all units are operating simultaneously, should not drop below 7" W.C. for natural gas or 11" W.C. for propane gas. Fluctuations of more than 25% on natural gas or 10% on propane gas will create problems and affect burner operating characteristics. A 1/8" tap to measure the manifold pressure is located on the combination gas valve, which is on the burner manifold located directly below the burners inside the cabinet.

Purge the supply line to clean out dust, dirt, or other foreign matter before connecting the line to the unit. It is recommended that an individual manual shutoff valve be installed in the gas supply line to the unit. Use pipe joint compound that is suitable for use with both natural and LP gas on all threaded connections.

!CAUTION

ALL PIPE JOINTS AND CONNECTIONS MUST BE TESTED THOROUGHLY FOR GAS LEAKS. USE ONLY SOAPY WATER FOR TESTING ON ALL GASES. NEVER USE AN OPEN FLAME TO CHECK FOR GAS LEAKS. ALL CONNECTIONS MUST BE CHECKED FOR LEAKS AFTER THE UNIT HAS BEEN PUT INTO OPERATION. TEST PRESSURE SHOULD NOT EXCEED 14" W.C.

!CAUTION

THIS APPLIANCE AND ITS INDIVIDUAL COMBINATION GAS VALVE MUST BE DISCONNECTED FROM THE GAS SUPPLY PIPING SYSTEM DURING ANY PRESSURE TESTING OF THAT SYSTEM AT TEST PRESSURES IN EXCESS OF 1/2 PSIG (3.45 kPa).

The appliance 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 1/2 psi (3.45 kPa).

Connect the gas supply directly to the 3/4" male NPT connector located near the lower left rear corner of the fryer. When tightening the supply pipe, be sure to hold the mating connector extending from the unit securely with a wrench. This will prevent any damage or distortion to the internal piping and controls of the unit.

After connecting the gas supply, check again that the fryer is level. Use a long spirit level four ways; across the front and rear of the frypot, and along each edge.
