1.0 - Equipment Description

Your Groen HY-6G (CE) HyPerSteam Convection Steamer is designed to give years of service. It has two stainless steel cavities (cooking chambers) which are served by twin, independent atmospheric steam generators which are gas-heated. A powerful blower circulates the steam in each cavity to increase heating efficiency.

Each cavity holds up to three steam table pans (305 x 508 x 64 mm). A 1.5 mm stainless steel case encloses the cavities, the steam generators and the control compartment that houses electrical components. Door hinges are reversible (the doors may be set to open from the left or right). Operating Controls are on the front panel.

HY-6G (CE) steamers are equipped with fully electronic controls and a button-activated, preprogrammed CLEAN cycle.

The drain system includes a spray condenser, which helps keep steam from escaping down the condensate drain.

The HY-6G (CE) has two independent cavities, each with its own base-mounted steam generator.

2.0 - Inspection and Unpacking

Your HY-6G HyPerSteam will be delivered completely assembled in a heavy shipping carton and attached to a skid. On receipt, inspect the carton carefully for exterior damage.

CAUTION

SHIPPING STRAPS ARE UNDER TENSION AND CAN SNAP BACK WHEN CUT.

Carefully cut the straps around the carton and detach the sides of the carton from the skid. Be careful to avoid personal injury. Strap edges may be very sharp, particularly where cut. Write down the model number, serial number and installation date. Space for these entries is provided in the Service Log at the back of this manual. Keep the manual near the equipment for reference and update as needed.

CAUTION

THIS UNIT WEIGHS 550 LBS. (250 KG). GET HELP AS NEEDED AND USE MATERIAL HANDLING EQUIPMENT TO MOVE IT.

When installing, use material handling equipment to lift the unit straight up from the skid. Check packing materials for any loose parts.

The unit will be delivered in a heavy carton, strapped to a wooden skid.

OM/SM-HY-6G(CE)

3.0 - Water Conditioning

It is essential to supply the steam generator with water that will not form scale. Even though the steam generator is engineered to minimize scale formation, scale development depends on the hardness of your water and the number of hours the equipment operates.

In some areas of the country, water is low enough in minerals to avoid scale formation. But most water supplies are full of minerals which form scale. It is this scale which could lead to an early component failure.

Your water utility can tell you about the minerals in your water. The water going to the steam generator should have between 10 and 30 parts per million (ppm) total dissolved solids (TDS) and should have a pH (acidity rating) of 7.0 or higher. Please follow these simple precautions:

3.1Do not rely on unproven water treatments which are sold as scale prevention or scale removers. They don’t always work. The best way to prevent scale is to supply the purest possible water (10 - 30 ppm TDS).

3.2If your water contains scale-forming minerals, as most water does, use a well-maintained water softener. Whether an exchangeable softener cartridge or a regenerating system is chosen, a regular exchange system is essential.

3.3Installing a water meter between the softener and the steamer will provide an accurate gauge of water use, and will help determine when to exchange cartridges or regenerate the softener. Using a water softener will provide longer generator life, higher steam capacity, and reduce maintenance requirements.

3.4If you notice a slowdown in steam production, check the unit for scale build-up. Heavy scale reduces the unit’s ability to boil water, and can even cause heating elements in the steam generator to overheat and burn out.

MINIMIZE SCALE PROBLEMS BY USING AND MAINTAINING A SOFTENER, AND BY CLEANING THE STEAMER REGULARLY.

4.3.3Burner Air Adjustment

The unit is equipped with fixed aeration type burners which have no provision for air inlet adjustment.

Gas input is through a ½ inch B.S.P.T connection at the left rear of the unit.

4.3.4Equipotential Terminal

In accordance with national regulations, each unit is fitted with an equipotential terminal.

4.4 Water Supply Connection

The HY-6G CE model is fitted for a 3/4 inch B.S.P.T. cold water connection. The water supply must be provided at a rate of not less than 2.7 liters (0.70 gallons) per minute. Pressure must be 2.0 to 4.0 Bar (30 to 60 PSI) maximum.

Water quality minimums require totally dissolved solids (T.D.S.) of 30 parts per million maximum, and a water pH of 7.0 or greater. If the available water supply fails to meet these requirements, water treatment equipment must be provided to ensure steamer reliability and operating life.

OM/SM-HY-6G(CE)

Install a WRAS approved double-check valve or an equally effective backflow preventive device in the incoming cold water line at the point of connnection(s) to the steamer and in compliance with all local plumbing codes. This installation must be per WRAS-IRN R160 Schedule 2-15(1). For units with the dual water connection option, a double-check valve shall be installed on each water line.

Do not allow the connection to have any leak, regardless of how small.

4.5 Drain Connection

The HY-6G (CE)Steamer must be leveled front to back. A 38mm (1½ inch) ID hose may be attached to the drain pipe (supplied) by means of a hose. DO NOT

CONNECT THE HOSE DIRECTLY TO A BUILDING DRAIN. There must be a free air gap between the end of the hose and the building drain. The free air gap should be as close as possible to the unit drain. There must also be no other elbows or other restrictions between the unit drain and the free air gap.

CAUTION

DO NOT USE PLASTIC PIPE. THE DRAIN MUST WITHSTAND HOT WATER.

Install the drain line with a constant downward pitch.

IMPORTANT: Do not allow any water traps in the line. A trap can cause pressure to build up inside the cavity during steaming, which will make the door gasket leak.

Leave an air gap between the hose and the building drain, and don’t allow water traps in the hose.

4.6 Initial Start-Up

After the HY-6G(CE) Steamer has been installed, test it to ensure that the unit is operating correctly.

4.6.1Remove all literature and packing materials from the interior and exterior of the unit.

4.6.2Make sure the water supply line is open.

4.6.3Make sure that the gas supply line is open and that the manual knob on the main gas valve is turned to the “on” position. This valve is located behind the front access panel on the right side of the unit.

4.6.4Turn on electrical service to the unit. The HY-6G(CE) will not operate without electrical power. Do not attempt to operate the unit during a power failure.

4.6.5The steamer will not operate until the pilot burner has been ignited. To light the pilot burner, activate the pilot switch located at the lower front, next to the main gas valve. When the pilot ignition sequence has been successful, a green light on the pilot switch will glow.

4.6.6The “trial for ignition” period is roughly 90 seconds. If the pilot burner does not light within about 90 seconds after the switch is activated, the ignition system automatically stops gas flow to the pilot burner and stops the ignition trial. If this happens, turn off the pilot switch and repeat the trial for ignition.

During the initial start-up, the pilot may require several trials for ignition until all the air is bled from the gas piping. Subsequent start-ups should require only about 5 seconds to achieve pilot ignition. Reinstall panel(s). NOTE: See Automatic Operation of Pilot at the end of this section.

4.6.7.Once the pilot burner flame has been established (the green light on the electrical panel is on), press the ON/OFF touch pad for the desired steamer cavity. The steam generator will fill with water.

NOTE: The door MUST be closed for the main (high) burner to work.

4.6.8When the steam generator has filled with water, the main and low burners will ignite automatically. Within 6-8 minutes the READY light will come on, indicating that the water has reached its standby temperature. When the READY light is displayed, you may take any one of the following steps:

OM/SM-HY-6G(CE)

a.Set the timer to the desired time for timed steaming.

b.Turn the timer knob to the manual ON position for continuous steam.

c.Let the unit stay at standby temperature.

WARNING

WHEN YOU OPEN THE DOOR, STAY AWAY FROM STEAM COMING OUT OF THE UNIT. THE STEAM CAN CAUSE BURNS.

4.6.9To shut down the unit, press the ON/OFF touch pad into the off position. The steam generator will then drain. You may also switch off the pilot switch to conserve energy.

4.6.10If the HY-6G(CE) Steamer behaves as described, the unit is functioning correctly and ready for use.

4.6.11Automatic Operation of Pilot

Once the pilot burner is lit, it essentially functions as a standing pilot. In this state, if the pilot is accidentally extinguished (by a very strong gust of wind for example), it will re-ignite automatically. The unit will completely shut down for a few seconds while the pilot is re-ignited.

Then the unit will come back on and resume operation in the mode and with the (running) timer value existing just prior to shutdown. The pilot switch may be turned off during “off hours” to conserve energy.

After the unit has been running, if the pilot burner ever fails to re-ignite automatically within 90 seconds, wait 5 minutes before you attempt to reactivate it. In the unlikely event that ignition problems persist, contact your authorized Groen Service Agency.

NOTE: For operation at high altitudes (2000 feet and above) please consult the Groen Food Service Engineering Department.

4.7Gas Type Conversion (See Paragraph 4.3.1 for important information for gas conversion. Verify the type of gas to be used).

To change the type of gas used (e.g. G20 to/from G31) change the following:

Burner injector

Pressure setting on Main Gas Valve

Data plate

Gas pressure Regulator Springs

The governor spring does not need to be changed; only the pressure setting. ALL CONVERSIONS

MUST BE FOR APPROVED GAS IN THE COUNTRIES LISTED IN PARAGRAPH 4.3.1

OM/SM-HY-6G(CE)

5.0 - Operation

WARNING

ANY POTENTIAL USER OF THE EQUIPMENT SHOULD BE TRAINED IN SAFE AND CORRECT OPERATING PROCEDURES.

5.1 Controls

Operator controls are on the front right of the unit. The control panel has the following touch pads and

indicator lights. (Your controls may have either words or the symbols shown below):

The ON/OFF touch pad gets the

HyPerSteam ready for use, or shuts it off.

The READY indicator light shows that the steam generator is at standby temperature and the cavity is hot enough to begin steaming.

The CLEANING indicator lights when the unit is operating in the cleaning mode.

The SERVICE indicator light shows when the water level probes have stopped working, and need to be cleaned (normally an indication of lime deposits).

When one probe is not working, the SERVICE light flashes briefly every few seconds. When both probes fail, the light will flash continuously and the beeper will sound.

The HI TEMP indicator light comes on when the steam generator is too hot.

The unit will automatically shut off, and cannot be turned on again until it has been serviced.

The TIMING indicator light stays on when the timer is running.

The CLEAN touch pad is used to start the automatic 50 minute cleaning cycle.

The timer is used in three ways:

Gas Lockout Indicator and Reset Control

Should the pilot fail to ignite during start-up, a yellow indicator on the control panel (see page 11) will light and the supply of gas to the unit will be halted.

When this occurs, the ignition process may not be started again for five minutes. After that time, press the Lockout Reset Switch located behind the front panel and attempt to start the unit again. If the lockout continues to occur after three attempts, contact your Groen Service Agency for assistance.

5.2 Operating Procedure

5.2.1Press the ON/OFF touch pad for the steamer. The steam generator will fill, and heat until the READY light comes on. (About 10 minutes.)

5.2.2Load food into pans in uniform layers. Pans should be filled to about the same levels, and be even on top. The maximum allowable weight of food is 9.8 kilograms (21.6 lbs.) per pan.

5.2.3Open the door and slide the pans onto the supports. If you will only be steaming one pan, put it in the middle position.

5.2.4Close the door. With the READY indicator lit, take one of the following steps:

If you want to steam the food for a certain length of time, set the timer for that period. The timer will automatically run the steamer for the set time and then turn it off. A red light will come on and a beeper will sound. Steam production stops.

To steam continuously, turn the timer to the manual ON position. A green light will come on. The unit will continue steaming until you stop it by turning the timer to OFF. When steaming continuously YOU MUST CONTROL STEAMING TIME.

1In the OFF position the steam generator stays at a low boil or “holding” temperature.

2When a cook time is set, the unit steams until the timer reaches OFF. The steaming stops, a red light comes on and a beeper sounds.

3With the timer turned to the ON position, the unit steams continuously. The green light stays lit. The steamer will not time down.

WARNING

WHEN YOU OPEN THE DOOR, STAY AWAY FROM THE STEAM COMING OUT OF THE UNIT. THE STEAM CAN CAUSE BURNS.

5.2.5Open the door. Remove the pans from the steamer, using hot pads or oven mitts to protect your hands from the hot pans.

5.2.6To shut down the unit, press the ON/OFF touch pad OFF. The steam generator will drain.
