In addition to those requirements listed in WAC 296-104-300, the following are also required:
(1) All boilers that are automatically fired low pressure steam heating boilers, small power boilers, and power steam boilers without a constant attendant who has no other duties shall be equipped with:
(a) Two high steam pressure limit controls, the highest of which shall be provided with a manual reset.
(b) Two low-water fuel cutoffs, one of which shall be provided with a manual reset device and independent of the feed water controller.
(c) Coil type flash steam boilers may use two high-temperature limit controls, one of which shall have a manual reset. This is instead of the low-water fuel cutoff.
(d) All control and limit devices shall be independently connected and electrically wired in series.
(2) All automatically fired hot water supply, low-pressure hot water heating boilers, and power hot water boilers shall be equipped with:
(a) Two high-temperature limit controls, the highest of which shall be provided with a manual reset.
(b) One low-water fuel cutoff with a manual reset and independent of the feed water controller.
