F. Notify all personnel in the area and the gas supplier from a telephone remote
from the area of the leak.
This unit must be connected to the building supply in strict accordance with all applicable
local codes, or in the absence of local codes, with the National Fuel Gas Code, Z223.1-
(latest edition), and in Canada, CAN/CGA-B149.1 and CAN/CGA-B149.2 “Installation Code
For Gas Burning Appliances.”
If required by local codes, an individual gas shutoff valve must be installed upstream of the
appliance and its gas pressure regulator. Prior to installing this valve, ensure that its flow
capacity and the capacity of the building piping are sufficient to deliver the quantity of gas
required for proper operation (½” psi).
Your CHITWOOD BROILER is designed and certified for operation at 5.0 inches water
column when using natural gas and 10.0 inches water column when using propane gas.
Any service personnel for any reason must never alter these valves.
After the Boiler is connected to the building gas supply, all joints and connections must be
checked for leakage. Acceptable methods for checking these joints include electric leak
detectors, pressure gauges, and a rich soapy water solution. AN OPEN FLAME MUST
NEVER BE USED TO CHECK FOR GAS LEAKS.
IMPORTANT: The Broiler and its individual shutoff valve must be disconnected from the gas
supply piping system during any pressure testing of the gas supply piping system at test
pressures equal to or in excess of ½ psi.
The Broiler must be insulated from the gas supply piping system by closing its individual
manual shutoff valve during any pressure testing of the gas supply system at test pressures
equal to or less than ½ psi.
CAUTION: Since some leak detection solutions, including soap and water, can cause
stress cracking, the piping shall be rinsed with water after testing unless it has been
determined that the leak test solution is non-corrosive.
If your CHITWOOD BROILER is equipped with casters, refer to the special note under the
section of this manual titled “Special Instructions for Broilers with Casters.” Your Broiler
is supplied with orifices, which are designed for use up to elevation of 2000 feet above sea
level. For elevations above 2000 feet, BTU ratings should be reduced at a rate of four
percent for each 1000 feet above sea level.
SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR BROILERS WITH CASTERS
A. Two of the casters supplied with your Broiler incorporate a locking feature.
Always ensure that the locking casters are located at the front of the Broiler for
B. When the broiler is equipped with casters, installation must be made with a
flexible gas connector that complies with the Standard for Connectors for
