CSA ANSI Z21.11.2-2013

Gas-Fired Room Heaters – Volume II, Unvented Room Heaters

Published by: CSA Group / 08/01/2013 / 141 pages / 27th Edition

Preface

This is the twenty-seventh edition of ANSI Z21.11.2, Gas-fired room heaters, volume II, unvented room heaters. It supersedes the previous editions published in 2011, 2007, 2000, 1996, 1992, 1989, 1983, 1978, 1974, 1971, 1967, and 1962.


Scope

1.1
This standard applies to newly produced gas-fired unvented room heaters and gas-fired unvented decorative room heaters for connection to the house fuel supply system (see Clause 3), hereinafter referred to as room heaters or appliances, constructed entirely of new, unused parts and materials, having input ratings up to and including 40,000 Btu/hr (11 723 W) except:

a) Unvented room heaters suitable for installation in bedrooms shall have input ratings of 10,000 Btu/hr (2 931 W) or less; and

b) Unvented room heaters suitable for installation in bathrooms shall have input ratings of 6000 Btu/hr (1 758 W) or less.

1.2
This standard covers unvented room heaters and gas-fired unvented decorative room heaters that comply with either of the following types:

a) shipped from the factory equipped specifically for use with one gas only. Field conversion of gas types by any means including the use of a kit shall not be permitted; or

b) a universal unvented room heater shipped from the factory equipped with a switching means for selecting the type of gas to which it is being connected.

1.3
Unvented room heaters are:

a) for use with natural gas;

b) for use with manufactured gas;

c) for use with mixed gas;

d) for use with liquefied petroleum/propane gases;

e) for use with LP gas-air mixtures; and

f) for manufactured (mobile) home aftermarket installation for use with natural gas only or for use with liquefied petroleum/propane gases only.

1.4
Universal unvented room heaters are:

a) for use with propane and for use with natural gas when provision is made for a switching means from one gas to the other; and

b) for manufactured (mobile) home or mobile home aftermarket installation for use with propane and for use with natural gas when provision is made for a switching means from one gas to the other (see Clause 4.1.4).

1.5
Unvented room heaters for installation in bathrooms shall be wall-mounted. Unvented room heaters for installation in bedrooms shall be wall mounted or for installation in solid-fuel burning fireplaces. An unvented gas log (see Clause 3), provided with means for mounting the burner base assembly to the floor of the solid-fuel burning fireplace, shall be considered as complying with the wall-mounted requirement for installation in bedrooms or bathrooms.

1.6
The construction of unvented room heaters for use with the above-mentioned gases is covered under Clause 4.

1.7
The performance of unvented room heaters for use with the above- mentioned gases is covered under Clause 5.

1.8
This standard covers appliances shipped from the factory equipped specifically for one gas only. Field conversion of gas types shall not be permitted.

1.9
Special construction provisions applicable to room heaters for manufactured (mobile) home aftermarket installation are outlined under Clauses 1.3(f), 4.20.4 and 4.21.2(j).

1.10
If a value for measurement as given in this standard is followed by an equivalent value in other units, the first stated value is to be regarded as the specification.

1.11
All references to psi throughout this standard are to be considered gage pressure unless otherwise specified.

1.12
Clause 2 contains a list of standards referenced in this standard, and sources from which these reference standards may be obtained.

ASQ Z1.4-2003 (R2013) and Z1.9-2003 (R2013) SET

Sampling Procedures and Tables for Inspection by Attributes (Z1.4) and Sampling Procedures and Tables for Inspection by Variables for Percent Nonconforming (Z1.9) SET

Published by: American Society for Quality / 2013 / 213 pages
About Z1.4-2003 (R2013):
Sampling Procedures and Tables for Inspection by Attributes is an acceptance sampling system to be used with switching rules on a continuing stream of lots for AQL specified. It provides tightened, normal, and reduced plans to be applied for attributes inspection for percent nonconforming or nonconformities per 100 units.

About Z1.9-2003 (R2013):
Sampling Procedures and Tables for Inspection by Variables for Percent Nonconforming is an acceptance sampling system to be used on a continuing stream of lots for AQL specified. It provides tightened, normal, and reduced plans to be used on measurements which are normally distributed. Variation may be measured by sample standard deviation, sample range, or known standard deviation. It is applicable only when the normality of the measurements is assured.

ASME PCC-1-2013

Guidelines for Pressure Boundary Bolted Flange Joint Assembly

Published by: ASME International / 11/12/2013 / 112 pages
The bolted flange joint assembly (BFJA) guidelines
described in this document apply principally to pressure-
boundary flanged joints with ring-type gaskets that
are entirely within the circle enclosed by the bolt holes
and with no contact outside this circle.1 These guidelines
may be selectively applied to other joint geometries. By
selection of those features suitable to the specific service
or need, these guidelines may be used to develop effective
joint assembly procedures for the broad range of
sizes and service conditions normally encountered in
industry.

CAN/CGSB 4.2 NO. 35.1-M90 (R2013)

Textile Test Methods – Colourfastness to Burnt Gas Fumes

Published by: Canadian General Standards Board / 11/01/2013 / 11 pages

This method assesses the resistance of the colour of textiles of all kinds and in all forms, except loose fibre, when exposed to atmospheric oxides of nitrogen as derived from the combustion of gases such as natural gas, manufactured gas or butane (c.p.) gas.

The method may be used to rate the colourfastness of dyes by applying the dye to textiles by a specified procedure and at a specified depth of colour, and testing the dyed textiles.

This method may require the use of materials and/or equipment that could be hazardous. This document does not purport to address all the safety aspects associated with its use. Anyone using this method has the responsibility to consult the appropriate authorities and to establish appropriate health and safety practices in conjunction with any existing applicable regulatory requirements prior to its use.
