Technical Note SB18: Boiler maintenance

Boilers use heat and water to produce steam. Other pressure equipment may be used in conjunction with a boiler, or separately. Best practice safety must be established for all operators, designers, manufacturers and suppliers of facility pressure equipment.

Boilers and other pressure equipment can be hazardous, particularly those used in industrial settings. Approved maintenance contractors should be used to deal with high-powered pressure equipment to manage these particular hazards. The now old Approved code of practice of the design, safe operation, maintenance and servicing of boilers is still the relevant document applicable in New Zealand.
