    Institution of Heating Ventilating Engineers later to become the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers The Working Party set up a Task Force of members who major aim was to create a historical record for future generations to understand and know how the industry was created and to identify the names of the Pioneers who designed and manufactured the systems and equipment Also to search out the Patents taken out by these Pioneers in developing and expanding this new industry Another aim was to collect historical items of hardware equipment etc and software books magazines adverts photographs and illustrations etc to be deposited in museums In 1977 The Working Party took Item 3 of the original IHVE Terms of Reference as its main objective To make the building services industry aware of the need to record historically significant installlations before they become extinct From 1979 the Archeology of Building Services Working Party changed its name from Working Party to Working Group and a further change in name was made in 1982 when it became the Building Services Heritage Group As the Heritage Group it maintained a small but energetic number of engineers dedicated to keeping alive the history of the

    or perhaps the water level falls so preventing or hindering circulation In this situation the result would be excessive pressures and explosions rather than fire I suggest If the furnace were lit in mid winter with part of the circuit frozen solid an ever present danger in churches heated only one day in seven pressure would rise excessively and again lead to an explosion rather than fire Indeed this occasionally happens at the present time in houses with a back boiler fitted All food for thought but I definitely remain sceptical about fire occurring without a preceding explosion Also any explosion would tend to occur in the furnace where the iron steel tubes in a fault situation would be subjected to excessive temperatures and so be critically weakened relative to the rest of the system REPLY TO THE QUERY ABOUT PERKINS The Perkins HPHW heating system according to its inventor A M Perkins was meant to operate at temperatures of up to 300 F but the system could be used for purposes other than space heating for example it was used as the heating source for baking ovens enamelling stoves and roasting ovens with temperatures of up to 600 F The Perkins system was designed as a hermetically sealed system so when the distribution pipework was full of water and had been fully air vented there could only ever be water inside the pipework The expansion vessels were sized to suit the volumetric water content of the system and to absorb the increase in water volume so steaming could never occur To date no type of safety valve has been seen on a Perkins HPHW system As the water content of the pipework system is small it didn t need much of an increase in the intensity of the furnace
