Cochran Royal Warrant

Is this the oldest Operational Boiler?

Date Published:

We think it could be...

David Young, Cochran General Manager, recently took a call from a boiler insurance inspector based in South Africa. He was trying to trace design and manufacturing records for two vertical Cochran boilers still installed and operating in Calitzdorp, South Africa. Impressively we were able to supply the required records for the boilers built in 1939 and 1945 and more impressively the boilers passed their inspection and continue to deliver.

If you know of an older operating boiler we would love to hear from you.
