BOILER INSTALLATION GUIDE There are numerous codes and regulations that offer a great amount of information on how to properly design and install boiler systems (see listing at end). Some may say that there are too many codes and regulations. For example, there are numerous regulations on how to size combustion air supplies, and
Listed below are sample specifications to assist engineers, and others, who wish to specify Superior Boiler on new projects. Each one can be customized for any particular requirement. Scotch Marine Boilers
