Control equipment to regulate flow and pressure of gases.

What does a Fuel Attendant do?

Controls equipment to regulate flow and pressure of gas from mains to fuel feedlines of gas-fired boilers, furnaces, kilns, soaking pits, smelters, and related steam-generating or heating equipment in such establishments as power plants, steel mills, pottery works, chemical plants, and petroleum refining facilities: Opens valve on feedlines to supply adequate gas for fuel when boilers are to be put in operation and to maintain standard pressure on gaslines. Closes valve to reduce gas pressure when increase in gas consumption by boilers causes pressure to rise. Observes, records, and reports flow and pressure gauge readings on gas mains and fuel feedlines.
