Bosch Greenstar Floor Standing (FS) Combi & Straight Boilers

Global Protankless Supply is pleased to announce the highly anticipated Greenstar Floor Standing (FS) series boilers. The Greenstar FS Boilers are fully modulating heat only or combi floor standing gas condensing boilers with many of the same features and customer benefits of the Greenstar wall boiler, with some additional innovations.

Installation has been simplified, with two new innovations:

  a. The Greenstar FS includes an integrated supply return manifold that can be field converted into a low loss header (LLH) to accommodate existing pipe work.

  b. All line and low voltage connections have been relocated into junction boxes on
  the back of the boiler for easier access and wiring.

Venting options have been expanded from PVC, CPVC, concentric & ridged PP to also include flexible PP venting. This provides a quick and easy venting solution for retrofit applications where the boiler and piping is not relocated.

The FW200 Weather Compensation Boiler Control (87182262150) is an optional accessory and is not included with the Greenstar Floor Standing Boilers. The New System Control (NSC), capable of controlling multiple zones, will be launched around the same time as the new Greenstar FS to provide a flexible heating combination.  Please call Global Protankless Supply at 866-289-4652 for further details and to place your order.

Calculating Combustion Air Needed for Bosch Gas Tankless Water Heaters

The amount of combustion air today is very limited due to our attempt to reduce our fuel consumption. We are replacing our windows, doors, weather-stripping, caulking and adding insulation. Years ago there were no double pane windows in the basements much less steel insulated doors in the basement leading to the outside. There were old single pane glass windows and old wooden doors which, a lot of times you could see daylight around the door frame.

Today we have added thermo pane windows in the basement, new steel doors complete with magnetic seals. We even insulate the exterior perimeter between the floor joists. All these ideas are good, but they steal much needed combustion air required for a safe combustion process needed for a gas appliance. If your heating appliance is using indoor air for combustion you must be aware of the amount of combustion air that is required.

The combustion process requires the air being burned to contain 20.9% oxygen. If it does not, the flame will start producing CO (carbon monoxide). This is an odor free gas which gets inhaled and stops the body from absorbing oxygen. CO poisoning happens every year. We must be more concerned about this when we tighten up our homes and have appliances which use indoor air for combustion.  Gas appliances should never be installed in bathrooms or bedrooms where doors are normally kept closed.  This is stated in the National Fuel Gas Code (NFGC) manual.  Please also consult local codes for further clarification.

The federal code requires 50 cu ft. of space per 1000 Btu's input from your gas heating appliance. Your state or local code may exceed that. If we know what the input of the appliance is and divide it by the total cu. Ft. of the mechanical room say where the appliance is installed the answer would have to be at least 50 cu ft. per. If we do not have 50 cu. ft. per thousand Btu's, we must bring combustion air in from the outside. If there are hallways and other rooms available due to no door being on the mechanical room we can also calculate these other areas.

We need to measure all the areas we can get combustion air from, until we come to a doorway with a door. The code states even if it is a louvered door, we still stop when we come to a door. If the utility room has a door mounted, even if it is open all the time you stop at the door. Since the formula uses Btu's as MBH (thousand btu/h) we do not use the last three (3) zero's. For example 130,000 would be just 130.
As an Example:
If we do the math it would look like this; 
Room = 32 feet long x 25 feet wide x 7 feet high 
Boiler = 130,000 Btu input and a 40,000 Btu Water Heater
Volume = Length x Width x Height 
Volume = 32' x 25' x 7' = 5600 Cubic Feet
Total BTUH Input = 130 MBH + 40 MBH = 170 MBH 
5600 Cubic Feet / 170 MBH = 32.95 Cubic Feet per 1000 BTU
Combustion Air will be Required!!

Any additional combustion air needed beyond what is already available must be taken from the outdoors.  When bringing air from the outside you only need to bring in the balance of what you need. When in direct communication with the outdoors you need 1 sq in of free space for every 4000 Btu's.

Bosch Universal Hydro Generator

The Bosch universal Hydro Generator, part number 8707406104 (87074061040 or 8-707-406-104-0) is designed to work with all newer Bosch Therm 520HN heaters as well as all older model hydro generated units.  The universal hydrogenerator comes with miscellaneous water pipes, gaskets and bushings to adapt to the older units. The hydro generator works with water flow and has a small wheel that spins when the water starts to flow. The small wheel inside has a magnet on it that when spinning produces a certain amount of mili volts that is transferred through a couple wires to the ignition unit and that in turn lets the ignition unit light the pilot and then the main burner.  There is no need for any electrical power to operate the heater.
The older units that would require the universal hydro generator are the Bosch model 125HX, 425HN, 425HNO, 1600H and the Bosch WR400 series heater WR400-7K V1G23S3195.  The new universal Hydro Generator part replaces all older hydrogenerators such as 8707406043 (87074060430 or 8-707-406-043-0), 8707426026 (87074260260 or 8-707-426-026-0), 8707406059 (87074060590 or 8-707-406-059-0), 8707406069 (87074060690 or 8-707-406-069-0), 8707406095 (87074060950 or 8-707-406-095-0) and 8707406071 (87074060710 or 8-707-406-071-0).

PCB Control Boards for Powerstream Pro & Bosch Tronic 5000 Electric Tankless

The PCB control board (Printed Circuit Board) is a thermostatically controlled circuit board that allows the whole house electric tankless water heater, models WH17, WH27 & WH36, to be manually controlled by a temperature dial that would range in temperature from 86-131 degrees. The PCB in conjunction with a flow transducer enables the PCB to turn on additional elements in the heater as necessary depending on the amount of gallons per minute (gpm) flowing through the heater.

The PCB would recognize many factors in the function of the heater to maintain a steady temperature and all of this is determined on where the temperature knob is set to, the gpm flowing through the heater, and the temperature of the incoming ground water.

To obtain the maximum heating potential of the Bosch Tronic 5000 electric tankless water heater it must be wired correctly and have the full required voltage to the unit. The Bosch Tronic 5000 WH17 would require 2 independent double pole 40 amp breakers wired with 8 gauge wire and could draw a maximum of 80 amps at full flow through the heater. The WH17 would require the home to be supplied with a minimum of a 150 amp service. The Bosch Tronic 5000 WH27 would require 3 independent double pole 40 amp breakers wired with 8 gauge wire and could draw a maximum of 120 amps at full flow through the heater. The WH27 would require the home to be supplied with a minimum of a 200 amp service.  The Bosch Tronic 5000 WH36 would require 3 independent double pole 60 amp breakers wired with 6 gauge wire and could draw a maximum of 180 amps at full flow through the heater. The WH36 would require the home to be supplied with a minimum of a 300 amp service.

The maximum inlet water temperature allowed into the electric tankless is 86 degrees Fahrenheit.

The Bosch Tronic 5000 WH17, WH27 & WH36 have had many upgrades and engineering improvements over the years. In January 2007 the WH17(RP17PT) & WH27(RP27PT) went from having copper canisters that contain the heating elements to an upgraded Polymer module. The PCB control board was also upgraded to maintain a more steady temperature that works with the heating elements in the polymer modules.

Below are the designated PCB control board part numbers for the units before and after 2007.

Before 2007 with serial #60A 00000 or lower:
Powerstream Pro RP17PT PCB with copper can units, part #93-793777

Backdraft Reducer #9301BFP for Bosch Tankless Water Heaters

The Heat Fab backdraft reducer (9301BFP) is the preferred option for limiting backdraft for the Bosch Condensing tankless water heaters (see fig. 22).

Note: The following solution is available only for 3" diameter venting.

In cold climates, components of a tankless water heater can freeze and burst from negative draft. A leading cause of negative draft is combustion appliances in the building not being supplied with sufficient combustion air. A wood stove or furnace can pull its combustion air from the water heater‘s vent pipe, allowing the cold incoming air to freeze the cold water in the heat exchanger. The best prevention for this risk is two pipe venting which draws the appliance combustion air from outside creating a positive pressure inside the unit.

For this solution to be effective, the internal flapper must be 100% closed when the water heater is not running. Refer to Figures 24 and 25 for preferred installation positions in the vent system.

Installation considerations:
• Install damper per the supplied manufacturer‘s instructions.
• The damper is only to be used in the exhaust vent piping.
• Ensure directional arrow on damper label faces in the same direction as exhaust flow.
• If installed horizontally, the axis must be horizontal or slightly pitched up towards termination to ensure damper closes 100% when heater is not running.
• To allow accessibility, damper must not be installed in an enclosed section of vent pipe.
• Do not install damper in unconditioned spaces (e.g. attics) Condensation can build up while the heater is running which can later freeze and potentially block the flapper.

The Bosch C1210ES/ESC, C1050ES & C950ES are all approved to use the Backdraft Reducer.

Bosch Greenstar Intelligent Cascade Module (ICM) #7719003528

Bosch is always working on new ways to improve their products and has recently came out with an Intelligent Cascading Module (ICM) part #7719003528 for the Bosch Greenstar gas-fired wall-hung boilers.  The ICM modules are designed to control cascade systems.  A cascade system is a heating system where several smaller boilers are connected in parallel to achieve higher output.  The Bosch ICM modules are only suitable for controlling Bosch Greenstar boilers with BUS-enabled Heatronic 3 systems.
One Bosch ICM module can control up to 4 Greenstar boilers.  By conecting up to 4 ICM modules, up to 16 boilers can be linked to form a single cascade.  Depending on the heating system controls used, a cascade system with up to 4 or up to 16 boilers can be created.  The maximum number of boilers that can be connected and the number of ICM modules required for the different systems are shown in the table below.

Bosch Tankless Water Heaters and Pressure Regulating Valves

  1. Pressure Regulating Valve is a valve that automatically cuts off the flow of a liquid or gas at a certain pressure. Regulators are used to allow high-pressure fluid supply lines or tanks to be reduced to safe and/or usable pressures for various applications.

  2. Bosch tankless water heaters work on water pressure and flow.  Some people experience fluctuating temperatures sometimes if they are on a well system as the well pump has a high and low setting for when the pump comes on and off.  Most common well pumps are set to like 30 - 55 psi of pressure.  So when you are using the hot water and if the pump kicks on during this time you could see a change in flow and pressure which will change the flow and water temperature out of the Bosch tankless water heater.  
  3. A Pressure Regulating Valve installed on the cold water line before the Bosch tankless water heater can be set at the low PSI such as 30 psi and then will always maintain that 30 psi consistently whether the pump kicks on or not.
  4. There are all sorts of different pressure regulating and pressure reducing valves on the market.
