Steam boilers by law must have regular inspections by qualified boiler inspectors to ensure they are safe to operate and be covered by insurance. It is difficult to believe that badly corroded water tubes would not be detected on these inspections. Also if a steam boiler is mothballed it should be drained of water thoroughly dried then filled with an inert gas and sealed to prevent corrosion. It would also be thought that due diligence by way of citing recent boiler inspection reports would have occurred before any company undertook to refurbish the boilers. Either one or both of the above was not done properly and an enquiry must be conducted to determine who or what was at fault.
