7.11.1 - Introduction

This section is concerned with the special requirements for devices and circuits which are designed to produce heat for transfer to their surroundings. All water heaters (as well as those for other liquids) must be provided with a thermostat or cut-out to prevent a dangerous rise in temperature. Not only could the high temperature of the water or other liquid be dangerous, but if allowed to boil, very high pressures, leading to the danger of an explosion, could result if the liquid container were sealed.
