What are the requirements for installing a temporary (portable) boiler or pressure vessel shipped to an Indiana location for emergency or temporary service?
There are no special rules set forth at 680 IAC 2 for the installation of temporary or portable equipment. Therefore, a regulated boiler or pressure of this kind must meet the requirements applicable to a used or re-installed boiler or pressure vessel each time it is shipped to a different location for use in Indiana. Consequently, if the portable equipment in question has been previously installed in Indiana, it will have been registered with the division and may or may not have a current and valid permit to operate (inspection certificate). If a previously registered temporary boiler or pressure vessel is being re-installed in Indiana and the location is insured by the owner or user of the location, the responsible insuring company inspector shall be contacted for approval to operate the unit. The acceptance of an existing (valid) certificate for a unit shipped to another location shall be at the discretion of the inspector. The Boiler and Pressure Vessel Safety Section shall be contacted for the initial inspection of portable equipment not previously registered in Indiana. If circumstances necessitate that an insuring company inspector must report the installation of portable equipment not previously registered, that inspector should contact the BPVSS office for instruction and/or assistance
