While every boiler should be professionally inspected annually, there is more than one type of inspection made by an inspector. Jurisdictions and insurance companies recommend that power boilers be inspected annually, both internally and externally, while not under pressure.
Most laws and insurance company guidelines recommend an annual inspection of boilers. This inspection would be a thorough internal and external inspection, with the boiler cool and under no pressure. However, some organizations recommend conducting an additional external inspection halfway through the year while the boiler is under pressure.
In addition to maintaining your boiler, it is recommended that you schedule an annual inspection by an independent, certified member of the NBBI (National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors).
Generally, the states that have mandated S stamp for manufactured boilers, have also mandated in-service inspection by authorized inspection agencies. The API also has a recommendation practice, API RP 573, for the inspection of fired boilers and heaters.
