My First Ack-O-Matic

I saw my first Ack-O-Matic boiler yesterday. I don't see a lot of boilers, and most of them are not this old.

Replacement is planned, so I didn't spend a lot of time evaluating it, but that device on the top of the boiler looks sure looks like a PRV to me.

If not, what might it be?

Thanks.

That's a relief valve. Hope there's another one on the boiler without a plug.
There's a boiler called "Ack-O-Matic"?

What genius thought up that one?

That would be Howard Ackerman, who manufactured the Ack-O-Matic and Ackerman boilers in the '50s and '60s. Wouldn't you name your product the Kat-O-Matic?
