: Number one, you should never have the water level go out of sight...the Boiler should shut down on a Low Water Condition before that happens...if the Boiler has taken a big swing, and the water level has dropped, I would be very careful, and add water very slowy, because Number Two...you should NEVER shock a Boiler with cold water that has gone into a Low Water Condition...Low Water means...make sure the fire is out, as I'm sure you know...wish you luck convincing your management. :)
: I am running an A frame Nebraska boiler rated at 60,000 pph. It has always been the policy to cool the boiler off if the water level was ever lost and could not be seen in the sight glass. Management now wants water added back to the boiler as as possible when this occurs without waiting for a cool down period. Has anyone ever heard of this????
