Select Mounting Location
The Amerec Steam Generator can be hung on a wall or set on it’s base. The best mounting location will satisfy all or most of the following conditions:
- The steam line should slope to allow condensation to drain into the steam room.
- The steam line should be less than 20 ft long. Ten feet is preferred. Steam lines over 20 ft long should be insulated.
- The mounting location should minimize the number of bends and elbows in the steam line.
- The steam line should enter the room 18” above the fl oor or at least 12” above a tub rim or ledge.
- No steam head shall be more than thirty (30) inches above the fl oor.
- The steam outlet should be located to avoid potential user contact.
- The generators should be installed in a dry, well ventilated area.
- The space provided should be at least: 7 cu ft for one generator
- 17 cu ft for two generators
- 27 cu ft for three generators
- Suggested locations are under a vanity, in a closet, attic, crawl space or basement. Preferably in the same room.
- Note: The generator must be in an area protected from freezing.
- The slave generators should be installed within a 25 foot cable length of the master generator and the master generator should be within a 25 foot cable length of the T100 control installation. See diagram.
- Note: Longer control and slave cables are available. Contact Technical Support at 1-800-363-0251 or email@example.com for assistance.
- The installation should provide clearance for service and element removal. See diagram 3.
- The mounting location should allow for a drain hookup. There should be no more than three 90° bends and 10 ft of pipe between any generator’s drain outlet and its drain valve inlet. See diagram 15.
