: Can someone please explain to me what boiler plants require licensed operators in NJ?

: We have a building with two Cleaver Brooks Scotch Marine hot water boilers. Each is rated at 4184 mbh. The relief valves are set at 30 psig.

: I was told they never had a licensed operator in the past and I am not quite sure I understand why.

State of NJ licensing requirements:


34:7-1. License necessary; emergencies; exceptions; administration; examinations

No unlicensed person shall operate a steam generator, similar equipment potentially capable of generating steam having relief devices set over 15 psig. and rated at or developing over 6 boiler horsepower or a steam power generator, if over 6 horsepower or a steam or hot water heating plant of which the indicated or rated capacity exceeds either 499 square feet of heating surface or 100 boiler horsepower or 1,000 kilowatts or 4,000,000 British thermal units input regardless of pressure or temperature conditions; and no owner, agent, superintendent, manager or other person having charge of any building or work in which such equipment is located, or used, shall use, or cause or allow to be used, any such equipment described in this section unless the same is in charge of a properly licensed person, except in emergency, and then for no longer than 15 days unless the commissioner in writing extends such time, of which emergency the owner of such equipment, or the agent, superintendent, manager or other person in charge thereof shall promptly notify the mechanical inspection bureau in writing, stating fully the circumstances.

The only exception to my knowledge is a plant under the direct juridiction of the Federal Government.
