Easy Installation

 Heater Installation - Wall Spacing Throughout NZ, Local Authorities require every combustion burner (i.e. gas, wood, diesel or pellet burners) to be issued with installation consent (fees apply), before the heater can be installed. After installation your Local Authority will inspect the FF-95 Heater installation and issue a Code Compliance Certificate. If preparation of the Consent Application presents any difficulty, please call 0800-379-247 and Avon will provide assistance. Avon can assist with arranging installation anywhere.

The simplicity of the balanced flue (see image on right - click image to enlarge) enables LASERTM heaters to be installed in a typical through wall installation in an hour or two, plus the external tank (see balanced flue page for more information).

The Combustion Chamber and Flue are fully sealed so that no diesel fumes can enter the heater space. Made of high quality Stainless Steel (SUS 430 Grade), the entire combustion chamber, flue pipes and balanced flue assembly cannot rust or corrode.

A range of accessories are available to simplify complicated installations (see accessories page).

An optional custom made perforated sheet metal cover is available to fit between the back of the heater and the wall, painted to any colour. Inquire for a sketch drawing to enable you to fill in the exact dimensions prior to manufacture, fax or mail to Avon and we will manufacture the "cover" to suit your site.

An external fuel tank is required. There are many options for fuel tanks and numerous types and sizes are available. Avon sell an 84L Toyotomi Stainless Steel Tank (see accessories page), which is an ideal size to top up with a portable container, alternativly large bunded and unbunded tanks (e.g. 250, 500 and 1,000 litre) can be sourced. Your individual needs will determine the best tank option. Remember, the bottom of the tank must be at least 400mm above the floor that the LASERTM Heater is installed on, and the top of the tank not more than 2.8 metres above. Extension tank legs are available.

 BEL Fire Shut-Off Valve NZ regulations require the fuel supply from the tank to be fitted with an automatic shut off valve, to stop the fuel supply in the event of a fire anywhere in the vicinity of the tank, the fuel pipe or the heater. A long proven method is a spring loaded auto shut off valve (see photo on right - click photo to enlarge, also see accessories page) installed close to the tank, and held open with a special "string" that is stretched taut between the lever of the fire valve and an anchor point inside the heater. Then if any excessive heat occurs anywhere along the entire length of the string, or near the fuel tank, the string fails and the fire valve shuts OFF the fuel supply. Avon supplies TOYOTOMI heaters with the fusible link string, fire valve and fuel filter fitted.

Clean fuel is absolutely critical for the reliable operation of any liquid fuel burning heater or engine. Avon supplies a special "spin-on" fuel filter that not only traps water droplets and filters fuel, but which will separate water from diesel fuel even when the water and fuel have been "homogenized" (see Gar-ber Fuel filter on the accessories page).

For installations where there is no option but to install the tank below the LASERTM heater, or when several heaters need to be supplied from one fuel tank (ideal for low cost total Central Heating in larger homes) a "Fuel Lifter" pump is available (see accessories page).

The completed installation must comply with National and Local Council Codes relating to the installation. Installation is relatively simple and does not require a specialist installer (as necessary for a heat pump), so we can easily arrange installation anywhere in NZ. Clients with DIY skills may be able to install the FF-95 themselves (or can arrange via a local installer). We provide detailed installation instructions.
