Boiler Database
« on: May 17, 2010, 09:39:32 AM »

I'm trying to put together a boiler details database to enable us to complete steam tests on manufactured boilers.  To help all those who no longer have the original manufacturers  certification I would really appreciate it if anyone who owns a manufactured boiler and does posses the original manufacturers certificate if they could let me have the stated working pressure for it and possibly capacity if included.  All I need is something along the lines of:

Hemmens Richmond boiler, Working Pressure-5.6 bar, capacity-500ml.

If the capacity isn't stated, which is usually the case, and you are able to fill the boiler with water and pour it out into a measuring jug I would be very grateful.

To keep the thread clear it may be better to PM me the figures.

Many thanks

Not trying to argue the point BB but I really think you should give some creedance to the safety valve issue, as reading on another forum of someone "Tweaking" a standard Mamod unit.

Ian, I can't even remember what the original issue was now.  Could you please either PM me or start a new thread on the subject to keep this thread for database information.

Thanks

One problem with these old threads - pre meltdown is you can't be sure that the names next to the posts match up (they may on this one).
I appear everywhere as mkenzig, others appear as guest. It's a minefield really

People coming and going is just life, but nonetheless sad and especially so if they have ability or wit  :} - At the moment I'm sad that Mike and Martin
have fallen out and that has led to Mike going. I don't want to know the why's of it as that might have me making stupid choices on which
(of two people I like) was right or wrong. Better to just hope those gone will return in time.

I have to say, though I know nothing of steam, the idea of good reliable databases seems an excellent resource for the future. Someone should do it O0
