Having mainly been involved in the operation of large boilers: In Canada, the furnace is generally referred to as the area surrounded by the waterwalls where combustion takes place; the boiler is the area comprised of the drum(s) and tubes where steam is generated. Purging always means to remove combustibles from the furnace and flue gas passes. The furnace is also referred to as the fireside, the boiler proper as the waterside. I was not aware that there were any differences in terminology between our 2 countries. Interesting. I also noticed that Americans refer to themselves as Stationary Engineers with licences, where Canadians refer to themselves as Power Engineers with certificates or tickets. Happy steaming!
