What type of boiler is this??

Jeff_44 Member Posts: 94

A friend of mine just bought a wonderful old house. It has a hot water system with lots of radiators throughout the house. I have a steam system in my house and knowing that I have a boiler, my friend asked me to help him get his system started. He told me his boiler was a little old, but I wasn't prepared for what was lurking in the basement.

Can anyone help identify this type of boiler - also, I didn't see any type of circulating pump. Being a steam guy, I don't have much experience with hot water systems and I wonder if this is some kind of gravity system. Any help would be appreciated.

The thing is wrapped in asbestos and looks like something from "Lost in Space."
