The design of the BLRB is attributed to G.H. Tomlinson and the first unit having water walls was constructed in 1934 by Babcock and Wilcox. A contemporary BLRB is similar to a large industrial watertube boiler and may be either two drum design (popular for operating pressures less than 900 psi) or single drum (popular for pressures above 900 psi).
Application of the ASME Code can result in much larger factors of safety, which sounds positive, however it may also disqualify a piece of equipment that has been in-service satisfactorily for many years.

ASME boiler and pressure vessel code (BPVC)Edit. The largest ASME standard, both in size and in the number of volunteers involved in its preparation, is the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC). The BPVC provides rules for the design, fabrication, installation, inspection, care, and use of boilers, pressure vessels, and nuclear components.
ASME B16.34 Valves- Flanged,Threaded, and Welding End. In December 1973, a reorganization of the subcommittee structure for B16 was approved. Subcommittee 15 was redesignated as Subcommittee N and was assigned responsibility for all steel valves. Work began to include coverage for flanged-end valves in ANSI B16.34.
The focus of these guides, supplement to the well-known ASME and EN standards, is the welding of CSEF materials for combined cycle, supercritical and ultra-supercritical power plants. Assessment of base metal and filler materials, prior to start of any activity is vital for a quality weld.
The ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code is an American Society of Mechanical Engineers standard that regulates the design and construction of boilers and pressure vessels. The document is written and maintained by volunteers chosen for their technical expertise. The American Society of Mechanical Engineers works as an Accreditation Body and entitles independent third parties such as verification,

In current coal-fired power plants, boilers are simply suspended from the top of the support structures. Therefore, boilers easily vibrate. In order to suppress vibration of boilers during earthquakes, stoppers made of steel are installed between a boiler and its support structure. The stoppers dissipate vibration energy by plastic deformation.
The ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel (BPVC) Section X Code and the European design codes EN 13121-3:2016 (GRP tanks and vessels for use above ground) together with EN 13923:2005 (Filament wound FRP pressure vessels — materials, design, manufacturing and testing) are some of the few known design codes applicable to composite pressure vessels.
