May 06, 2020 · The Slant/Fin Sentry boiler is a gas hot water boiler with an efficiency of 84.4% AFUE. The Sentry comes with several noteworthy features such a pre-purge option to conserve heat, a LED display which monitors system water temperature and allows the user to control the temperature as well, and a specially-designed insulated jacket to prevent heat loss and reduce operating noise.
Steam-fired boilers will have a small glass tube, called a sight glass, mounted on the side of the boiler. This sight glass is intended to show the level of water inside the boiler. Hot water boilers will not have a sight glass but are likely to have other accessories installed nearby, such as a pump or expansion tank.

The steam boiler is an old convection heating technology dating back over 200 years and is most commonly found in old homes. Because steam boilers operate at a higher temperature than hot-water boilers, they are inherently less efficient than their hot-water cousins and are more finicky to operate.
sections of this Code specify the rules by which steam boilers, pressure vessels and connecting piping are to be designed, constructed and installed. Section I of the ASME Code contains rules for Power Boilers which, for the case of steam boilers, are boilers designed for a maximum allowable operating pressure (MAWP) greater than 15 psig.
All steam boiler controls and secondary plumbing are in place and pre wired and most Superior Boiler vessels are designed to easily fit through a three foot wide doorway resulting in a very quick start-up. Superior Boiler Steam Boilers heat very rapidly and thus create dry steam quickly.
