This is an interesting forum. I don't know if this is the correct place to post this but can someone tell me what I have in these photos. It is about 4 1/2 feet high x 4 feet wide x 7 feet deep. It is in the building I just bought. I looked for information on US Radiator Corp and found nothing.

US Radiator Corp. redirects to American Standard. Not sure but it looks like USRC was at some point absorbed into AS and then their products were discontinued? Not sure but I'm not finding much either.

Is there another heat source in the building? Looks like that hasn't been fired in a long time, more pictures of the inside as well may help. It could be you got a load of too hard to remove scrap or a diamond in the rough, in either event it most likely would have to be rebuilt on site.

Seen this one yesterday...similar somewhat,don't you think?

It is set up w/ a big bituminous stoker and also has an ash conveyor to remove ashes to outside.

I have more pictures showing stoker and ash conveyor. :)
