Looking at a part started one but cannot see any safety valves on the drawing.

Would appreciate knowing if would be able to use at a club as designed please as not familiar with current regulations.?

Thank you

Well reeves sell the safety valve body so it must be on the drawings somewhere! It's the lever type which may be better replaced with something else for actual running and keep the correct looking one for display.

Thanks reply Jason

I think it looks as it may go in the centre at the top but just one safety valve.

Can a boiler with just one safety valve meet the current regulations please ?

Thank you

As far as I know there is no requirement for two.

The drawing show a weight type Salter safety valve and is also part of the castings kit available from Reeves. There is no reason why you should not fix a "normal" safety valve in its place on the regulator "block" in between the cylinders.
