Question about Garland H283 Gas Kitchen Range
I would like to install a Garland H283 in a kitchen in Boston, but the plumbing inspector needs ducumentation to pass the installation?
Has anyone delt with this issue?
There may be multiple issues here.
Question: Is this being installed in a residence?
If so, I can see why an inspector might have a problem with that. Commercial cooking appliances, *especially* really old ones have next to NO safety devices on them. There might in fact be NO safeties on this thing at all. This means that if stiff breeze blows out the pilot light, it will keep letting gas into the room until something blows up.
This is much less of a concern in a commercial setting where: a) there's always going to be lots of ventilation and b) the gas supply is more than likely going to be interlocked with a fire suppression system.
If he's asking for documentation, it could also be because he's looking to make sure that the gas line & venting are sized correctly. If you're running natural gas, then 1/2" black iron should be sufficient for the gas supply if you're within 50 FT. of the meter, but it also depends on what else you've got tied in. Bumping the gas line size to 3/4" is what I'd probably do anyways
Without more info, there's little else to be said except that arguing with inspectors is like arguing with cats, but less rewarding. :)
Here are *some* SPECS anyways:
24,000 BTU natural gas StarFire burners or 20,000 BTU propane gas StarFire burners. 30,000 BTU race track even heat oven burner
