Free Up Valuable Time, Money and Resources

Exception 6 is a New Jersey regulatory compliance option for operating and maintaining Low-Pressure Boiler Plants that exceed 100 Boiler Horse Power. The details about this regulation are outlined in New Jersey Administrative Code section 24:7. Many building managers, owners, and boards often misinterpret Exception 6 certification as a simple allowance to operate their boiler plants with fewer licensed boiler operators. In reality, certification follows an extensive and rigorous set of regulations that require, among other things, multiple site inspections by the Department of Labor and the correction of any existing boiler room deficiencies that violate applicable ASME and local building code requirements.

While Exception 6 certification can reduce the requirement for on-site licensed boiler operators, the spirit of the law is improved safety and compliance, not reduced personnel shifts. The requirements of the program, therefore, address many aspects of boiler room safety and remote monitoring, as well as the reduced on-site presence of licensed boiler operators.

Giving building owners the option to install a state-certified remote monitoring system on their low-pressure boilers has been a game changer. Eliminating the previously normal routine of having to manually check their low-pressure boiler every two hours of every day provides savings in both time and money. With Exception 6 services from Evco, remote boiler monitoring becomes an essential force-multiplier for building owners and managers, enabling facility staff to focus more of their time on tasks elsewhere in the building without sacrificing the safety or compliance of their boiler room.
