Reg. 390 m
Water column

The piping to the water column shall be carefully noted to see that there is no chance of water being pocketed in the piping forming the steam connection to the water column. The steam-pipe should preferably drain towards to the water column. The water pipe connection to the water column must drain towards the boiler.

The relative position of the water column to the fire surfaces of the boiler shall be observed to determine whether the column is placed in accordance with the Regulations. The attachments shall be examined to determine their operating condition.


Reg. 390 n

Baffling-Water tube boilers

In water-tube boilers, it should be noted, as far as possible, whether or not the proper baffling is in place. In many types of boilers the absence of baffling often causes high temperatures on portions of the boiler structure which are not intended to be exposed to such temperatures, from which a dangerous condition may result. The location of combustion arches with respect to tube surfaces shall be carefully noted. These are sometimes arranged so as to cause the flame to impinge on a particular part of a boiler and produces overheating of the material and consequent danger of the rupture of the part.



Reg. 390 o

Localization of heat

Localization of heat brought about by improper or defective burner or stoker installation or operation creating a blow pipe effect upon the boiler, shall be condemned.
