I recently procured this boiler because it looked neat! Spencer Heater from Williamsport, Pa. 216k btu. Was used w/ oil gun. Horizontal tubes look to be in near perfect condition. Can anyone tell us about it? I can't find much info on it at all.
Glenn, you might as well start a new chapter in "Old Boilers" in your coal burner Registry. I know it did not look that pretty when you found it. 60 years of rust and dust does some 'modification'. Shove a GJ stoker in the beast and have 220K to play with.
Looks exactly like the old Kewanee type C boilers which were made in the factory at Kewanee Illinois. They were bought out in 1991 by Burnham and closed by their new owner in 2001. I was their ASME code authorized inspector in my previous life for a spell.
