The boiler room log lists boiler operation data that can be used to increase boiler safety and efficiency as well as identifying a potential malfunction. 8-A boiler room log is used to record information regarding operation of the boiler during a given period of time. The number and frequency of the checks to be performed depend on the plant.
This leaflet provides basic advice on the risks and regulatory requirements for the operation of steam boilers. It sets out the general principles of boiler safety for people with limited technical knowledge of boilers, such as owners, managers and supervisors, who do not have access to industry guidance.
(4) The continuous, manned attendance by the operator during all times of operation of a non-solid-fuel-fired steam boiler having a fuel input rating of less than 12,500,000 BTU/hr is not required when an automated electronic control system meeting the requirements of "ASME CSD-1" referenced in rule 4101:4-3-01 of the Administrative Code is

Testing steam boiler control systems. Any boiler regulations will emphasise that regular testing of any boiler control system, particularly with respect to the water level, is an important requirement. All testing should be carried out with the water in the visible region of the water level gauge.
When determining boiler room air requirements, the size of the room, air flow and velocity of the air must be reviewed as follows: 1. Size (area) and location of air supply in the boiler room a) Two (2) permanent air supply openings in the outer walls of the boiler room are recommended. Locate one (1) at each end of the boiler
The ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (ASME BPVC), which is administered by ASME (New York, N.Y.; www.asme.org; founded as the American Society of Mechanical Engineers), is a well-established standard for the design and fabrication of boilers and pressure vessels.ASME code-symbol stamps show compliance with the requirements of the standard, but code stamping of steam systems in ethylene and
