Antique Boiler Inspection Survey

Results from National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors survey


| March/April 2002


In the aftermath of the Case tractor explosion at the Medina County Fairgrounds on July 29, 2001, in Medina, Ohio, the National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors mailed out a survey to its accredited boiler inspectors around the U.S. regarding their regulations for antique or historical boilers, which in practical terms means antique steam traction engines and portable steam engine boilers.

According to the National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors, the survey was requested by Ohio chief boiler inspector Dean Jagger in response to the Case explosion. The National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors has been kind enough to share those results with us for the benefit of our readers. Special thanks go to Donald E. Tanner, executive director of the National Board, for permission to print the results of this survey.
