Requirements for Boiler Installation Rooms Notes on the installation of boilers and boiler house components 1 General This technical information describes the requirements for boiler installation rooms and contains notes on the installation of boilers and boiler house components for steam, superheated steam, warm and hot water boiler systems. It is intended to provide assistance to planners of installation rooms and buildings. All the relevant national and local regulations and applicable standards should also be followed. 2 Basic requirements for the installation room The following basically requirements for the boiler room must be met: • The boiler system may only be installed in a room that meets the local regulations for the installation of boiler systems. • The installation room must be kept clean and free from dust and dripping water. The inside temperature must be between 5°C and 40°C. If the air contains salt (proximity to the sea), the maintenance intervals of the boiler system may be shortened. • Unauthorised persons must be forbidden to access the boiler room through permanent, clearly visible notices. • Depending on the boiler parameters(water content, pressure, capacity), less strict installation or supervisory regulations may be applicable, depending on the national regulations. • Sound insulation requirements must be met in accordance with local regulations. • The control cabinets must be installed in such a way that no vibrations or shaking of the system components can be transmitted to the control cabinets. Installation must be carried out in areas which protect the control cabinets against excessive radiated heat and which safely allow access in situations which could be dangerous • Free access to inspection openings on boilers and plant components must be ensured. 2.1 Requirements on the building The following requirements on the building must be met: • The place of installation must be designed in such a way, in terms of construction, that vibrations caused by the process cannot cause any damage to buildings or neighbouring systems. • The structural loading of the building shell must be taken into consideration for all fixings. • Every boiler installation room must have n external wall or ceiling surface that is if possible continuous and clear, totalling at least 1/10 of the ground surface area (or in accordance with local requirements) which, in the event of excess pressure in the boiler installation room, will give much more easily than the other enclosing walls. • The opening for brining equipment into the boiler installation must be made in accordance with the dimensions of the individual components. Suitable lifting equipment must be provided in the boiler installation room for moving heaving equipment. • The clear height and width of all surfaces that can be walked on must be sufficient. Access to the system must be guaranteed in accordance with the local regulations. If the clear height of the installation room is smaller than the required height, for construction reasons, the minimum height must be agreed with the local authorities. • Suitable, clearly marked emergency rescue routes must be provided. • The boiler installation room, especially in the area of the valves and safety equipment, and the emergency rescue routes must be well lit. • The parts of the system that are to be operated must be easily accessed and there must be sufficient space to pen doors (including inspection openings) Requirements for Boiler Installation Rooms
