4. Identify the 3 differences of a utility boiler and industrial boiler

Answer: size of boiler, application of steam and hot water and design of boiler
Source: Handout 5
5. Select one which does not belong to the same maintenance category
a. Record boiler operating pressure or temperature. An excessive steam or
temperature drop will alert you to excessive loading on the boiler
b. Check combustion visually. Look at the flame to see if something has
Changes may be an indication that a problem is developing
c. Blow down the water level controls to purge the float bowl of possible
sediment accumulation. Operating conditions will dictate frequency of this
