NFPA 85 Code: Gas Train and Venting - The Boiling Point

Today on the Boiling Point, Ritchie talks with Mike Taylor about the National Fire Protection Association 85 Code that deals with Steam Boilers combustion systems.

A number of boiler rooms were built many years ago, potentially before the new codes were put in place. Codes regarding gas trains and venting are two types people often overlook. Making sure that your boiler room is up to date on these codes can not only save you from fines or shutdown, but can also protect you from a potential catastrophe.

More information about these new codes can be found at ABMA's website:
