This 200,000 Btu heater is essentially a large sidearm heater. Two of these (minus the hats, coats and other adornments) were used to heat a 1,100-gallon tank to provide hot water in a large office building.

It was designed for easy maintenance, with double doors on both sides for cleaning its seven coils.
