Wondering if the Toridheet company still makes a furnace?
Also where to find the serial # or btu s of a Toridheet Boiler?
And what year might this one be, it is minty green and is about 3 feet tall and 18" wide and about 3 feet deep?

    Long gone!

    They produced a oil-fired rotary burner and a full line of appliances, boilers, furnaces and water heaters. Went out of business in the 1960's.

    WOW!
    Is it still operating as a rotary?

    Or has someone stuck a gun in the door?

    Best of Luck

    There should be a name plate somewhere

    that has the BTU ratings on it.

    Okay, Toridheat

    merged at some point with Fluid Heat.

    Don't know exactly when since most of my books don't have chronologies. I know all of these companies went down in the 1960's. You would not be the first person to have heating appliance in your home that was 'new-old stock', FACT!

    After a merger with Fluid Heat they then became a division of Anchor Post Products. All of these companies where in the Cleveland, Lorain, Elyria Ohio area.

    This is the only thing on the Internet about Anchor Post and I'm not even sure it's related:

    There are a lot of ways to identify the unit and I suggest you have a qualified person do it. Hope this helps.

    I do have many sizing books on the Toridheat line, but a model number is required to use them, sorry!
