  1. please clarify my doubt.... why two gauge glasses are given in boiler??

    1. during rough weather or ship heels at an angle it will be very difficult to find the correct readings. If two gauge glasses are there the we an find out it easily

    2. during rough weather, both gauge glass will not show correct reading. dude, its solas requirement to install 2 gauge glass as an alternative option.
