burnham independece steam boiler

Can the controls on the leftside of the boiler be swithed to the right side or do I have to order a new one or different brand. Have limited space in my utility room the boiler is a Burnham independence steam.




  • Don't think so


    As far as I can recall, I don't believe that there are tappings on the right side for the gauge glass and controls on the Independence. I am away from my office until Tuesday and the Internet service at this hotel is realllll slowwwww. You can go to the link below and download a copy of the I&O manual which has a tapping chart in it or you may have yours near your boiler. If the tappings are there, they will be shown in the chart. Hope this helps.

    The Independence is a nice boiler

    but if the controls are in the wrong place, it won't do you much good. Check out the Columbia CEG or Utica PEG steamers, they have the controls on the front. Here's one I'm particularly proud of.
