ASME Section VI: Recommended Rules for the Care and Operation of Heating Boilers


Although heating boilers are designed and constructed safely under Section IV, the rules of Section VI are recommended for their care and operation. These rules are non-mandatory, unless adopted into law, guidelines for the safe and efficient operation of steam-heating boilers, hot-water-supply boilers, and hot water-heating boilers after installation (however, they are not applicable to potable water heaters). It should be noted that this chapter generally follows the format of Section VI; where additional information is considered beneficial, it has been added.
