1944 Monarch Malleable Super Heater
Have you seen one of these 1944 Super Heaters lately?
The image on the left is an AD for the 1944 Monarch Superheater we found online. The photo on the right is the actually one located here in a friends cabin at Vallecito Lake, North of Bayfield, Colorado. And ... It works and burns wood and was used to burn all grades of coal back in the old days.
As the Ad states, it was an answer to the nation's 1944 wartime plea to save fuel. Monarch invented this new, radiant Super Heater. It employed a new downdraft principle and gases were completely burned. When it was new the Monarch heater turned into fuel-saving heat and stopped losses which other heaters could not avoid. It efficiently burned all grades of coal (and wood). It also stated that there was "No smoke while refueling."
Anyone ever seen one of these 1944 Monarch Super Heaters?
