In Reply to: operator continuous attendance posted by tm on May 08, 2009 at 12:36:43:
: Can it be justified to consider relaxing a state requirement for continuous attendance of power boilers based on the availability of automatic computer monitored controls and safety shutdown devices? I would be interested in seeing comments regarding boiler attendance requirements / practices from those in juristictions requiring licenced operators
Well no from a safety standpoint. These devices can fail and boilers capable of high output could run out of water rather quickly. A trained operator in continuous attendance can respond to this event and prevent a major explosion. Case in point last years explosion in Tennesee. There are others. The Hartford Insurance Co. has data concerning these.
