#31 Large Dormatory Boiler

Description: Seen here is a steam boiler used for heating Bursley Residence Hall at the University of Michigan. There are three of these used for heating Bursley, each capable of producing 9,000,000 BTUs. In the dead of winter two of the three are being used at once, while the third is used as a backup in case of failure. These were placed in Bursley during its construction, in 1965.
