Antique something??

I found this in one of my crawl spaces mixed in with a pile of galvanized pipe and the big inserts that came from a converted coal boiler I assume. You know, the big iron ones that slide into the large passages.



Anyway, it appears to say Rich Fin and 30 gallons. There is some number before that but I can't make it out.





Does anyone know what this is?

    I'll guess...

    ... that it's a heat exchanger for hooking up to a 30 gallon tank for domestic hot water.  It would go in the fire box.  In cook stoves, they were called water fronts or water backs.  Maybe someone else will have a better informed guess!

    HX:

    I think you have it. Especially if there is no plug in the second port. The ones I saw went on a Florence oil stove, like a side arm heater. Except they went into the side of a stove with the Kerosene pot burners. They were around when I started, but the Boss didn't service them unless we ripped them out.

    Interesting

    Yep, no plugs in the first two ports, the second two have plugs. Looks like probably 3/4" NPT.



    I was surprised I couldn't find anything at all on this. Usually when I find an old name on an item like this I can find something, but not this time.
