I think inspection authorities have to be careful that they don't get sued from any direction, including the manufacturers of the magetic jobbies. This wording leaves the ball in the boiler manufacturer's court. If a boiler manufacturer can identify a device or non-chemical program that satisfies the requirements (and somebody may very well have one at some point) of being testible, then go for it. I think the chances of ANY reputable boiler manufacturer exposing themselves to the potential liability of recommending something NOT approved by the ASME people is pretty much zero. That means that anyone wanting to use one of these devices for registered boilers here, will have to convince ASME first. The way the rules are written here, the OWNER of a plant is totally responsible for everything. He's the one that gets charged, if any charges are laid. However, there's nothing to say that he won't call out his legal department and sue everybody he even thinks was involved in some way. And he WILL.
