AW Steam Generator - Introduction

These instructions apply to 9016 series Helo Generators AW4.5, AW7.5, AW11 and AW14 With SIMPLE and SMART controls. 240V/400V 1/3 Phase Models.

Helo steam generators are tested by Intertek-ETL Laboratory. The steam generators come assembled and ready for installation. Check that the size and rating of the generator is suitable for your application.

The AW steam generators may be connected as a ganged system where one Steamer controls one or two other generators. Bath controls connect to the primary steam generator and the primary steam generator connects to the second steam generator (and third steam generator, if installed). This provides more power for large rooms and light commercial use.

We recommend choosing steam generators which are closely matched in power. The highest kW steam generator should be the primary unit. Each steam generator should have its own automatic drain.

For commercial use, we recommend checking with your local inspectors to confirm the AW system is acceptable for your use. Many jurisdictions will require an ASME boiler for commercial use: AW steamers are not boilers.

Note: The AW steam generator may be configured for single or three phase power during installation. An exhaust fan installed outside the steam room is strongly recommended.to remove excess steam from the bathroom or shower area.

Electric Shock Hazard - High voltage exists within this equipment. Disconnect all electrical power before servicing the generator. All installation and service to this equipment should be performed by qualified licensed personnel in accordance with local and national codes. There are no user serviceable parts in this equipment.

Electrical grounding is required on all Helo steambath generators. The generator is designed for hookup with copper wire only, 75°C or better.

Wire the controls exactly as described. Do not connect any additional wiring or power supplies to the controls or their terminals in the generator.

Service only by authorized personnel!

All plumbing must be installed by a licensed plumber in accordance with all applicable local and national codes.

Install indoors only. Protect from freezing. Generator must be level side to side and end to end. 

The pressure relief valve and generator drain must be installed in such a fashion that the risk of scalding is reduced to a minimum. Draining these outlets into the steam room may present a scald hazard and may damage materials used to construct the room.

Danger - To reduce the risk of explosions, do not interconnect t steam lines!!

Caution - The steam outlet carries hot vapor! A separate steam line is required for each steam outlet. Do not connect a valve or shut-off in the steam line! Avoid traps and valleys in the steam line where water could collect and cause a steam blockage. The hot steam line must be insulated against user contact.

Do not install the steam head near a bench or where steam may spray or where condensation will drip on the user as this will present a scald hazard.

Be certain that steambath enclosures are properly sealed to avoid water damage from escaping steam. It is recommended that 100% silicone caulk be used to seal all pipes and fittings. Steam must be prevented from escaping into the wall cavity. Centering the steam pipe is critical in rooms made of plastic, acrylic, resin, fiberglass or similar materials. Allowing the steam pipe to touch materials not rated 115°c or higher will result in damage to these materials.
