ABSTRACT
The article discusses the requirement for drum-level instrumentation under Section 1 of the International Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). It mentions a report from the National Board of Boiler and Pressure stating that 90 injuries were caused by boilers and pressure vessels in 2003. It describes the different types of gauge glasses, such as tubular and ported. The various types of indirect indicating devices are cited.
