boiling water. Make sure relief discharge pipes, such as from a boiler or a radiant heating system, will safely contain water treated with boiler chemicals and/or antifreeze. Reliefs include the boiler pressure relief valve, the back flow preventer discharge port, and the domestic hot water tank temperature and pressure relief valve. Any

Making Sure Steam Piping Is Safe(10 Simple Rules and
The heat exchanger has a sump with a condensate discharge port. Preferably, the boiler includes the above referenced condensate trap such that the inlet of the condensate receiving end is secured
Auxiliary boilers can also be operated in port to provide hotel service steam. When a boiler is secured in port (laid-up), one of six different methods is used. Only one of these methods, placing the boiler under a steam blanket, results in boiler blowdowns. A secured boiler is placed under a steam blanket by keeping steam continuously
Safety valves that are installed outside of a building for discharge directly into the atmosphere should be covered using a hood. The hood allows the discharge of the fluid, but prevents the build up of dirt and other debris in the discharge pipework, which could affect the backpressure.
The valve and discharge pipe are assembled to the boiler, terminating in a threaded male coupling. Determine the routing of the discharge pipe in the vicinity of the boiler. Make up as much of the pipework as is practical, including the 15mm elbow and nut supplied.
