Summary: The following article is a part of National Board Classic Series.

 


 

The following instrument readings, as appropriate to the specific boiler system, need to be taken daily for low-pressure heating boilers and at least once per eight-hour shift for high-pressure boilers. These readings must be recorded in the boiler log.

NOTE: It is very important that the boiler log be kept in a consistent format, in order for trends to be perceived and followed with preventive action. Standard forms are available for this purpose; however, the log may be more useful if the log form is customized for the particular installation.
