Thread: Commercial boilers
07/01/2019 09:10:44


Thank you for these comments.

The problem is that the boiler is not of a standard design. it is a 'one off'' with no details published.

Certificates available are very vague particularly regarding materials used for the various parts of the boiler.

I am not sure of its capacity but it is a steel boiler for a 71/4" gauge Narrow gauge loco.

I am thinking that it would be very risky to purchase this boiler.

So what does one do when the boiler supplier produces a certificate showing that his boiler has not been tested to 2xWP. I wonder if this might indicate other aspects of non compliance.

There is one supplier of loco kits whose boilers do not appear to satisfy the requirements of the Boiler Test Code 2018 regarding test conditions and certificates supplied.

Do commercial boilers supplied new in 2018/19 have to comply with the Boiler test Code 2018
