My customer has an old American Standard reheat water boiler, Boiler #1021, Series # 1B J1. It needs to be disassembled and I need to know the weight of each section or the heaviest section if they all aren't the same weight. Any help is appreciated.

    I believe those numbers were the foundry and/or assembly plant codes, since they appear on many boilers. Are there any other numbers on the rating plate?

    If that's the boiler I think it is, they probably weigh several hundred pounds each. You will need a hand truck and maybe a stair climber to move them.
