Section 2120.1410 Historical Boiler Definition

 

a) An "historical boiler" means a boiler capable of generating steam for motive power when operated for public display, exhibition and/or educational purposes, without regard for its actual physical age or its method of construction. Historical boilers are owned and operated by steam hobbyists and are not used in commercial or any other applications that require an annual inspection by the State of Illinois. Historical boilers include steam-powered conveyances such as: traction engines, portable and stationary engines, road rollers, automobiles, watercraft, and railroad locomotives not regulated by the Federal Railroad Administration.

 

b) Model steam engines whose boiler barrels are 12 inches or greater in inside diameter and/or whose firebox grate area is 1 square feet or greater shall be subject to inspection.

 

c) Exempted from inspections are any historical boilers that are used only for static presentations, i.e., unfired, and not subject to internal vessel pressure greater than atmospheric.
