a. Designed for connection to a vent; or
b. Not designed for connection to a vent.
The construction and performance of heaters covered by this standard are specified in Parts I and II, respectively. The definitions for certain terms used are in Part IV, Definitions.
If a value for measurement as given in this standard is followed by an equivalent value in other units, the first stated value is to be regarded as the specification.
All references to "psi" are to be considered gage pressures unless otherwise specified.
