WAC 296-307-42515

What requirements apply to vaporizers?

(1) Vaporizers, their parts, and other devices that may be subjected to container pressure must have a design pressure of at least 250 psig.
(2) Each vaporizer must have a valve or suitable plug that will permit substantially complete draining of the vaporizer. It must be located at or near the lowest portion of the section occupied by the water or other heating medium.
(3) Vaporizers must be securely fastened to minimize the possibility of loosening.
(4) Each vaporizer must be permanently marked at a visible point as follows:
(a) With the design pressure of the fuel-containing portion in psig.
(b) With the water capacity of the fuel-containing portion of the vaporizer in pounds.
(5) Devices to supply heat directly to a fuel container must have an automatic device to cut off the supply of heat before the pressure inside the fuel container reaches 80% of the start-to-discharge pressure setting of the safety-relief device on the fuel container.
(6) Engine exhaust gases may be used as a direct source of heat supply for the vaporization of fuel if the materials of construction of those parts of the vaporizer in contact with exhaust gases are resistant to the corrosive action of exhaust gases and the vaporizer system is designed to prevent excessive pressures.
(7) Fusible plugs are prohibited on vaporizers.
