SECTION I POWER BOILERS
Provides requirements for all methods of construction of power, electric, and miniature boilers; high-temperature water boilers, heat recovery steam generators, solar receiver steam generators, and certain fired pressure vessels to be used in stationary service; and power boilers used in locomotive, portable, and traction service. Rules pertaining to the use of the single ASME certification mark with the S, M, E, A, PP, V, and PRT designators are also included.
SECTION VII CARE OF POWER BOILERS
Provides guidelines to assist those directly responsible for operating, maintaining, and examining power boilers. These boilers include stationary, portable, and traction type boilers, but not locomotive and high-temperature water boilers, miniature boilers, nuclear power-plant boilers (see Section XI), heating boilers (see Section VI), pressure vessels, or marine boilers. Guidelines are also provided for the operation of auxiliary equipment and appliances that affect the safe and reliable operation of power boilers.

Universal Engineering Services(UES) has more than a decade experience in the pressure vessel design engineering for customers in UAE, Oman, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, and many more countries all over the world. UES work to many ASME standards to design and validate pressure vessels, boiler, fittings and piping systems such as Pressure vessel design to ASME VIII-1 and VIII-2, Hot water heaters and boilers to ASME I and IV, Piping to B31.1, B31.3, B31.5 and others. We, as pressure vessel design consultants, witnessed thousands of vessels and fittings to multiple codes.
