I didn't know you'd worked on steam, that must have been some really neat stuff to troubleshoot and repair. My high pressure steam experience was pretty much limited to installation and start up and not a great deal of that either. Mostly low pressure steam is what I worked on. The last hospital job I did though was a small 100 hp 125 psi steam boiler just for redundancy in the autoclave sterilization and domestic water heat exchanger circuits. I was just certain though that of all people you and Gordon would enjoy the machinery and the processes shown in the video.
You fellows that did that work continually really earned your paycheck Don. There's a lot of young fellows out there now that wouldn't consider working in those extreme environments. Some of our little boiler rooms would easily be in excess of 110 degrees continually. Not all, but some.
Yessir, there were some hard working people that video too....that little lady looked like she knew her way around it from stem to stern !!! I was wondering which machine bobbed off the dogs tail. :lol: :lol:
