The sources of all make-up air and room ventilation air movement to all dryers must be located away from any dry
cleaners. This is necessary so that solvent vapors will not be drawn into the dryer inlet ducts. Dry cleaner solvent
vapors will decompose in contact with open flame such as the gas flame present in clothes dryers. The decomposition
products are highly corrosive and will cause damage to the dryer(s) ducts and clothes loads.

4. ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS. The electrical power requirements necessary to operate the unit satisfactorily

are listed on the serial plate located on the back panel of each dryer. The electrical connection should be made to
the terminal board, on the rear of the unit, using #10 AWG wire for 120V, #12 AWG for 208-240V (neutral required).

It is absolutely necessary that the dryer be grounded to a known ground.

Individual circuit breakers for each stacked dryer are required. Use 30A circuit breakers for 120V and 20A
circuit breakers for 208-240V. This dryer is adjusted for 120V as shipped. Conversion instructions to 208-
240V (neutral required) are at the end of this booklet.

5. GAS REQUIREMENTS. The complete gas requirements necessary to operate the dryer satisfactorily are listed

on the serial plate located on the back panel of the dryer.

The inlet gas connection to the unit is 1/2-inch pipe thread. However, the size of the piping to supply the dryer should

A 1/8-inch NPT plugged tapping, accessible for test gage connection, must be installed immediately upstream

of the gas supply connection to the dryer.
