BOILER RULES REVISED
The Virginia Boiler and Pressure Vessel Rules and Regulations were amended effective July 2, 2003, to adopt certain parts of the 1998 Edition of CSD-1.
One of the most severe and frequent accidents
to boilers is a low water condition. The Department of Labor and Industry
has taken steps to adopt the latest national standards to help minimize
the frequency and severity of low water conditions. All new steam boilers
contracted for and installed after July 2, 2003, are required to have
two (2) low water fuel cut-offs. The second low water cut-off is required
to have a manual reset.
