This specification covers the material, design, and performance requirements associated with the construction of non-tilting (Type I) and tilting (Type II) jacketed kettles that use steam as a heat source for cooking food in commercial and institutional food service establishments. The kettles shall be available in four styles as follows: Style 1-floor mounted, pedestal; Style 2-floor mounted, with legs; Style 3-wall mounted; and Style 4-cabinetized. The kettles shall be classified into the following classes: Class A-directly connected to an external heat source; Class B-self-contained, gas-fired steam generator; and Class C-self-contained, electric steam generator. They shall also be grouped into three Grades according to maximum working pressure rating, and ten sizes according to capacity. The products shall be evaluated for their conformance with capacity, heating time, and energy utilization requirements.View Less
