Unfired pressure vessels and hot water heaters must be inspected externally every two years.
The State of Nebraska requires that all jurisdictional objects installed in the state are to be constructed according to the requirements of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, and further requires that such items are to be registered with the National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors (The National Board).
Upon completion of the boiler or pressure vessel inspection, completion of any required corrective actions, and receipt of the certificate fees, the owner or user of the boiler or pressure vessel is will be issued a certificate of inspection. The certificate must be posted in close proximity to the boiler.
If the boiler or pressure vessel is sold, removed, scrapped, placed out of service, or the ownership of the facility where the object is located changes, the owner shall notify the chief boiler inspector.
The Nebraska Boiler Inspection Act does not apply to boilers on railway locomotives subject to federal inspection, boilers under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Government, or boilers used exclusively for agricultural purposes. For other exclusions, please review Section 48-726 of the Boiler Inspection Act
