TES Installation Procedures

tes trailer requirements
TES Trailer Requirements
  • Payload Capacity
  • Dimensions
  • Tongue Length
  • Ventilation
  • Hose Access Door
payload capacity
PAYLOAD CAPACITY
  • The approximate combined weight of the standard TES package with three 100# propane tanks is 1600 lbs.
inside dimensions
Inside Dimensions
  • To maintain proper clearances around the TES unit and to carry accessories and other equipment a minimum 6’ x 12’ area with a 6’ ceiling is required.
  • A 6-1/2’ ceiling is required to stack TEX boxes four high.
tongue length
Tongue Length
  • A four foot tongue is require to be able to mount the AT70 Propane Tank Rack.
ventilation
VENTILATION
  • A 200,000 btu propane fired boiler requires 200 square inches of incoming air vent space to provide combustion air flow.
  • This will consist of one lower vent within 12 inches of the floor and a roof vent. Each vent of 100 square inches.
  • When calculating the vent area, consideration must be given to the blockage effects of louvers, grills and screens.

Roof Vent

hose access door
HOSE ACCESS DOOR
  • A hose access door is required to allow the hoses to be run out of the trailer while allowing the doors to be locked for security during operation.
  • The open space of the hose door can be included in the calculation of the total available vent space.

The door should be held open during TES operation

layout
LAYOUT
  • Determine the positioning of the TES unit and accessories.
    • Balance load to reduce tongue weight
    • Minimum of 6” between the TES unit and wall of trailer and any combustible materials.
    • TES exhaust outlet centered between roof beams.
    • Use wall e-channel to secure hoses and TEX boxes.
    • Floor anchors can be installed as needed without interference from beams or other obstructions.

exhaust
EXHAUST
  • The outdoor vent cap cannot be used in an enclosed trailer.

Outdoor Vent Cap

exhaust18
EXHAUST
  • Always use single wall galvanized metal vent pipe the same diameter as the draft flue collar.

200,000 BTU units: 7” Exhaust Pipe

250,000 BTU units: 8” Exhaust Pipe

The exhaust pipe must be installed straight up through the roof with an Exhaust Cap.

exhaust19
EXHAUST
  • Make sure the section of roof directly above the TES unit exhaust outlet is relatively flat and TES is positioned so exhaust outlet will be centered between the roof cross beams.
exhaust20
EXHAUST
  • Use plumb bob or level to locate and mark center spot on trailer roof directly above the exhaust outlet.
  • Draw an 8” diameter circle & cut out circle.

8”

exhaust21
EXHAUST
  • Drill 12 holes, each 3/16” in diameter around the edge of the flange on the Exhaust cap (NM4330).
exhaust22
EXHAUST
  • Apply a silicone, urethane or neoprene sealant to the bottom of the exhaust cap flange.
  • Place exhaust cap on roof centered over the opening.
  • Drill 3/16” holes through roof aligning with each hole on the flange and secure flange to roof with pop rivets.
  • Seal edge of flange and rivets with silicone, urethane or neoprene sealant.
  • Seal around inside edge of roof opening and exhaust cap
exhaust24
EXHAUST
  • Use a crimping tool to crimp top edge of Tapered Exhaust Adapter

Adapter 8” x 7”

Crimping Tool

exhaust25
EXHAUST
  • Place the Tapered Exhaust Adapter on top of the TES Exhaust outlet and measure the distance from the bottom of the Exhaust cap to the ridge just below the crimped section of the adapter.

Ridge

exhaust27
EXHAUST
  • Cut a section of 7” single wall galvanized pipe 1” longer than your earlier measurement.
  • Place pipe onto Tapered Exhaust Adapter.
exhaust28
EXHAUST
  • Insert crimped end of adapter and pipe assembly into bottom of Exhaust cap and set adapter over TES exhaust outlet.
