For the water boilers, they come with all that we just mentioned plus a 30 PSIG ASME rated safety relief valve. The boiler sections are tested for an 80 PSIG max working pressure. They have a combination high limit and low limit control board. The water boilers have a built in air eliminator which makes for better efficiency. Last but not least they have a combination pressure and temperature gauge that makes it easy to see exactly what the operating pressure your boiler is at any given time.
For Steam Boilers you will get in addition to the standard equipment available on all boilers. You will get a 15 PSIG ASME certified safety valve that is mounted on the side outlet. You will see a low limit and a high pressure control set. Also installed is a steam pressure gauge. Plus gauge glasses, gauge cocks and gauge guards all for better boiler operation. If you are looking to the ultimate boiler, there are some options that you can get. Available are low water cut off switches, which will tell you when there isn’t enough water in the boiler. Also available are tankless heaters, factory assembled boiler sections, and fire tested packaged boilers.
