Tools Required: 3/4" (19 mm) hex socket & ratchet driver, wood block 4" (100 mm) or 5" (125 mm) thick, a knife and

a groove joint pliers, which will open to 1 3/8" (35 mm).

1. Remove and discard packaging.

2. The crate base is attached to the dryer by (4) cap screws driven upward from below the crate base. Remove crate

base from dryer, by tipping dryer sidewise and place block under crate base rail in center of dryer. Using a ratchet
and 3/4" hex socket, remove and discard (2) crating bolts from side, which is raised. Remove block from under crate
base. Repeat for other side.

3. Install leveling legs. Using a walking motion, move dryer sideways about 6" (150 mm) off crate base. Tip dryer up

and place block under edge of dryer. Thread two leveling legs about two-thirds into the T-nuts on the base from which
the crating bolts were removed. Remove block from under dryer.

With a walking motion move dryer completely off crate base. Discard crate base.

Tip dryer sidewise, as previously done, and place block under edge of dryer on raised side. Thread leveling legs

into nuts as was done for the first side.

Slide unit into position where it will be installed. Adjust leveling legs, using the groove joint pliers, to level and align

dryer with adjacent units.


1. CODE OF CONFORMITY. All commercial dryer installations must conform with local codes, or in the absence of

local codes, with the Nation Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1A. Canadian installations must comply with current
Standard CAN/CGA-B149 (.1 or .2) Installation Code for Gas Burning Appliances or Equipment, and local codes if
applicable. The appliance, when installed, must be electrically grounded in accordance with the National Electric
Code, ANSI/NFPA No. 70-1990, or, when installed in Canada, with Standard CSA C22.1 Canadian Electrical Code
Part 1.

2. INSTALLATION CLEARANCES: This unit may be installed at the following alcove clearance. (millimeters)

I. Left Side


II. Right Side


III. Back

18" (457 mm) (Certified for 6" (150 mm) clearance; however, 18" (457 mm) clearance is
necessary behind the motors to allow servicing and maintenance.)

IV. Front

48" (1220 mm) (to allow use of dryer)

V. Top

Refer to figure labeled “Vertical Clearance Dimensions”.

AB. Certification allows 0" clearance at the top 4" (100 mm) back from the front.

However, a 1/4" (6 mm) clearance should be allowed in case the dryer needs moving.

C. A 10" (250 mm) clearance is required from top at all other points.

VI. Floor

This unit may be installed upon a combustible floor.

Do not obstruct the flow of combustion and ventilation air.

Maintain minimum of 1" (25 mm) clearance between duct and combustible material.

Refer to the label attached to the Belt Guard on the rear of the dryer for other installation information and start-up

3. MAKE-UP AIR. Adequate make-up air (650CFM/DRUM, 1300CFM/DRYER [36.8 m³/min]) must be supplied to

replace air exhausted by dryers on all types of installations. Provide a minimum of 1.5 ft² (0.14 m²) make-up air opening to
outside for each dryer. This is a net requirement of effective area. Screens, grills or louvers, which will restrict the flow of
air, must be considered. Consult the supplier to determine the free area equivalent for the grill being used.

The source of make-up air should be located sufficiently away from the dryers to allow an even airflow to the air

intakes of all dryers. Multiple openings should be provided.
