Perhaps! But it sounds like you're blaming Case's flaws and problems on the operators and the Alberta code, but not Case! All the brands had the same code to follow and (generally) the same engineers...

Please explain to the gallery how much good a water glass that is nearly 2 feet back of the back head of a boiler really is. As were some that Alberta recommended be installed

If you remember back to that get-together in the Red River District back in September, some of those fellers might have been considered as being "spellerized?"
Or something!

Hooda thunk?! It’s a real thing...... Definition of spellerizing

Subjecting the heated bloom to the action of rolls having regularly shaped projections on their working surface, then subjecting the bloom while still hot to the action of smooth-faced rolls. The surface working is said to give a dense texture to pipe made from the bloom, adapting it to resist corrosion.
