Specifically, RHMA is requesting permission to perform the 5year flexible staybolt inspection at the 7year, 6-month interval. RHMA feels that extending the 5-year inspection for removing the caps would not increase the safety risk to the boiler and the additional cost is not justified based on the low amount of annual service days.
