    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Describes strength and construction of calorifiers and storage vessels for central heating and hot water supply. Covers safety devices and pressure testing with units made from copper or carbon steel, heating by steam, water, heat transfer fluid or electricity. Does not cover calorifiers with steam on the outside of the tube battery.
