Looking for a hand fired boiler.

PostBy: Vampiro On: Fri May 09, 2014 12:17 am

Hi folks,

I am looking for a hand fired boiler. It could be an old Weil McClain, American radiator/ Ideal, Kewanee, Fitzgibbons, etc. It must have steam tappings (for gage glass, etc.). I am looking for a boiler in the 200,000 btu range. Slightly less or more btu's is acceptable.

The idea is to have this boiler be a backup in case of a power outage, or if I wanted to use the hand fired while maintaining the S260. The boiler room is going to be refurbished, so I would like to have all the boilers in place, as it is going to be a fire safe / rated boiler room with an air tight door and exterior combustion air supplying the boiler room. (1 cu. inch for every 1000 btu.). The boiler can be no wider than 29". My 260 fit fine through the door.

Thanks.

Thanks for the info. I had PM'd a member on here about one they will have available, but they never got back to me. It was an ideal....and it would have been ideal for me lol.
