Title Requirements to be met in internal inspection of water-tube and fire-tube boilers: recommendation of the "Pressure Equipment" technical committee of the C.E.O.C.
Original title Conditions à respecter pour la visite intérieure des chaudières à foyer intérieur et à tubes de fumée: recommandation de la Commission technique "Appareils à pression" du C.E.O.C. [in French]
Bibliographic information Apr.-May-June 1983, Vol.64, No.222, p.49-54.
Abstract These recommendations of the European Symposium of Independent Inspecting Organisations are an attempt to harmonise the methods used by the national inspection organisations to assure safe use of this equipment. They cover the possibilities of examining different parts of a boiler, the openings provided for cleaning, and the placement of internal accessories so as not to interfere with inspection of the internal walls of the boiler. Vertical and horizontal boilers have particular inspection requirements, as do boilers with flat walls.
