Section I
Interpretation: Section I, Preamble, Definition of Connection to Boiler

Question:
The fourth paragraph of the Preamble defines the point where boiler external piping begins
in terms of where the boiler proper terminates at, as follows:
(a) the first circumferential joint for welding end connections; or
(b) the face of the first flange in bolted flanged connections; or
(c) the first threaded joint in that type of connection; and which extends up to and
including the valve or valves required by this Code.
In the case of boilers where the connection contains one or more fittings between the boiler
and final point of connection (e.g. welding neck, elbow or tee), must the Manufacturer list
the first of any circumferential weld joint, flange face, or threaded joint as the connection on
the Manufacturers Data Report?
Reply:
No, one or more fittings may exist between the boiler and external piping provided the
Manufacturer defines where the boiler proper terminates and BEP begins.

Section I
Item Number 14-1074: Section I, PG-112 Guidance on use
of data report forms

Section I
Item Number 14-337: Section I, Preamble
Addition of solar heated steam generator

Includes solar receiver steam generators in the scope


of ASME Section I
Preamble Note 6 Solar receiver steam generator a
boiler system in which water is converted to steam
using solar energy as the principle source of thermal
energy. The solar energy is typically concentrated
onto the solar receiver through the use of an array of
mirrors that focus solar radiation on the heat transfer
surface.
