  • State Boiler Inspecto

'I thought you might be interested in this picture of a boiler that really blew up and came down in this position. This happened in Deerfield, New Hampshire, about 8 years ago. I was State Boiler Inspector at that time and found that this boiler was left get filled up with mud from water from a nearby brook in the spring thaw. The throat sheet at the front of the fire box blew out and ripped the boiler barrel full, length. The front flue sheet, tubes, and fire box took off intact and landed as they are seen some distance from the saw mill. The barrell sheet was flattened out like a politician's platform', says William F. Sumerfield, Exeter, New Hampshire.
