Hilton Anchorage and Egan Center: The Boiler Code Week is a forum for business leaders and policymakers to discuss high profile topics related to the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code concerning the design, fabrication, and inspection of boilers, pressure vessels, and nuclear power plant technologies.
Pennsylvania State Boiler Code Section IV HG-716 for modular boilers stated that side-by-side installation boilers are acceptable up to a maximum of 400 MBH (117 kW) capacity.
If the burner and the FD fan were both shut down, low system air flow may trip off the boiler for violating the airflow requirement by boiler code. Thus single burner mode should be tested then developed in the system control.
Winters is the only instrumentation manufacturer that complies to the new temperature ranges of ASME Boiler Code Section IV.
Another organization, The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME International) in New York has yet another boiler code, the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, that offers standards and guidelines.

However, because the boiler code had a strict requirement on the amount of the lowest combustion air of a boiler, although a burner was shut down in single burner mode, the associated FD fan still needed to run to supply excessive combustion airflow so as to maintain the total airflow in compliance with the boiler code requirement, under which condition the efficiency of the boiler was the best that can be achieved.
Ultimately, this led to the first edition of the ASME Boiler Code. Published in 1914, the Code was a collaboration of manufacturers, operators, steel fabricators, utilities, and others that had a stake in boilers and boiler safety.
