(a) The maximum allowable pressure consistent with the maximum and
minimum operating temperatures of a boiler carrying the ASME

which it was constructed and stamped or a later edition
of the ASME Code, provided the

rules of the later edition.
(b) The maximum allowable pressure consistent with the maximum and
minimum operating temperatures of a boiler or pressure vessel
that does not carry the ASME Code symbol shall be
