Sections for Construction of a Boiler

SECTIONS FOR CONSTRUCTION OF A BOILER The boiler is made up of rings or sections. The length of sections is often made equal, for convenience in ordering and cutting plates. The length is limited by the width of plate obtainable and the size of the riveting machine. This boiler being 16 feet long would probably be made in three sections, but the lengths should be so adjusted as not to bring the ring seam over the hottest part of the fire.
