It also includes hangers and supportsand other equipment items necessary to preventoverstressing the pressure-containing components.
Rules governing piping for miscellaneous appurtenances,such as water columns, remote water level indicators,pressure gages, gage glasses, etc., are includedwithin the scope of this Code, but the requirements forboiler appurtenances shall be in accordance withSection I of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code,PG-60.
The users of this Code are advised that in some areaslegislation may establish governmental jurisdiction overthe subject matter covered by this Code. However, anysuch legal requirement shall not relieve the owner ofhis inspection responsibilities specified in para. 136.1.
