Current through 2022-14, April 6, 2022

Low water protection shall be accomplished in one of two ways:

All solid fuel fired boilers shall be provided with a properly installed and operating low water cut-off.The low water cut-off may be installed in, or attached to, the boiler at the level recommended by the boiler manufacturer, but in no case shall the low water cut-off be installed below the crown sheet. The low water cut-off, when not installed directly in the boiler, may be installed either in the main supply line (vertical riser) as close to the boiler as possible or in a water column of continuous piping attached directly to the boiler.
B. The low water cut-off shall be designed and approved for the media in which it is used, either steam or water.
C. No valves or other obstructive devices may be installed between the boiler and any safety controls or devices; or
2. If the opening of an electric circuit will not arrest the combustion process, low water protection shall be accomplished in accordance with the appliance manufacturer's instructions.
