Write a review of Kewanee boilers
Kewanee Boilers is a Midwestern company that produced boilers for more than one hundred years. Its products are still in use worldwide. Most of Kewanee's manufacturing equipment is owned by Burton Mechanical, which also maintains sales records and can assist customers with replacement parts.
Kewanee Boilers began producing boilers in 1868 in Kewanee, Illinois. Several companies owned Kewanee Boilers during the company's lifetime; Burnham Corporation ultimately bought Kewanee in 1991. As part of the acquisition, the company obtained engineering drawings that date back to 1916.
Burnham closed Kewanee in 2001 because the demand for industrial firetube boilers was decreasing. As a result of the closing, Burnham launched a company called Classic Parts and Service to keep the original replacement parts in stock for Kewanee customers.
Burton Mechanical, Limited acquired Classic Parts and Service in 2006 and today carries original Kewanee parts. Burton Mechanical owns much of Kewanee's original machinery and is able to manufacture needed parts as a result.

Many different blower wheels were used on Kewanee boilers. The type of blower wheel used depended upon the altitude of the boiler site. Burton Mechanical has a varied stock of blower wheels available.
Kewanee boilers were made to operate with oil burners, gas burners, or a combination oil and gas burner. Different types of diffusers were created to cause the proper amount of fuel to mix with air for combustion. Burton Mechanical carries all types of Kewanee diffusers.
