Converting Peerless WBV-03 to Carlin EZ Gas
I have a 15 year old Peerless WBV-03-110-WPC which I (read: my new plumber whom I have not yet met in person) am going to convert later this week. In an effort to save time dialing it in, I am looking for some clarification for the specs Carlin has on their website.
The Peerless "Gross Output" sticker says 129,000 BTU. The Carlin website for the WBV-03 model shows an input of 140 MBH using their "1 slot" airband. When I emailed Carlin to confirm the setup, their "OEM guide" only listed two firing rates near mine, so they gave me the additional specs for the WBV-04 (133 MBH). If I use the lower firing rate, they advised I needed the "2 slot" airband set at 32%. (Everything else - diffusser, orifice - is the same.)
Although the model they cross-reference to is different than mine, should I use the lower firing rate and the 2 slot airband?
Thanks in advance.
