Default Lookout boiler

Anyone have any catalogs on " Lookout" boilers made in Tennessee, 1940's vintage.

I looked in my archives and I have nothing for Lookout Mfg. Co. however today I had to dig out my hydronic rating book to look up for another customer for a boiler replacement, in one book I have several pages, I am assuming you are asking about a vertical, if you are looking for a rating I need the OD diameter and number of tubes and if it has submerged or exposed tubes on the top tube sheet

Does it list a model 20-DF ? This is a flueless boiler about 4 feet tall. That model number is on the firebox door and there were two other large Lookout boilers at the auction I bought this one at . There was only one firebox door so I'm not sure if this is the correct model number or not.

Yes somewhat, sizes 1.5-25hp vertical tubeless series yours 36 inch diameter 29 inch grate diameter. went through two books that I have back to 1900 thats all I have. no DF series must be a casting number for the door they did make a D series but the picture shows a mechanically fired fire box boiler but no 20hp book only shows three styles of vertical tubeless, exposed and submerged, see if those mesurements are correct if not let me know what they are

Hi: Glenn What do you have on a lookout boiler 25" OD X 5'5 tall Flueless, and the geate is about 23" dia. ??? The 5'5 tall is just the bolier size. ad about 10" more inch. for the grate box. I don't have a ash box. Thanks Paul W.

6 1/2 hp 20" by 19" Grate area
8hp 24" by 23" Grate area
10hp 24" by 23" Grate area
12hp 30" by 29" Grate area

Physical height information not given, not sure what the differences are between the 8 and 10hp but the rating is equal so the 8hp was either underrated or might have been physically smaller in height.

Well I just found an obscure notation refrencing Eclipse Lookout Co. Chattanooga, Tenn. followed this to a boiler shown as a vertical Type D boiler with steam trim, hp ranges 2-30 with max MBH rating output but no physical size or model given. so maybe we need to concentrate on looking for Eclipse literature. company must have been reoganized at some point or they were manufacturing a boiler for eclipse under their patent rights, these appear to be more modern style boilers, also shown is a type T and Z boiler both vertical but the main characteristic is they all have three hand hole plates on one side

I have a look out boiler (1940 I think) - it's a vertical fire tube boiler, the grate is 19" in diameter and the boiler is 48" tall (from the grate to the top of the flues). I could not find any info on it anywhere, but looking at old catalogs (and other boilers) I figured it to be about 4hp. I use it with a 6hp engine and it produces a steady 2kW (I use it for battery charging sometimes). We mostly burn lodgepole pine.
