                          TO BE HELD APRIL 18, 1995 

   The Annual Meeting of Shareholders of Selas Corporation of America (the 
"Corporation") will be held at the Holiday Inn, 432 Pennsylvania Avenue, Fort 
Washington, Pennsylvania 19034 on Tuesday, April 18, 1995 at 2:00 p.m., for 
the following purposes: 

       (1) Election of directors; 

       (2) Ratification of the appointment of KPMG Peat Marwick LLP as the 
   Corporation's auditors for the year ending December 31, 1995; and 

       (3) Transaction of such other business as may properly come before the 

   Shareholders of record at the close of business on March 7, 1995 will be 
entitled to vote at the meeting. This notice and the enclosed proxy are being 
sent to shareholders on or about March 17, 1995. 

                              PROXY STATEMENT 

   The enclosed proxy is solicited by the Board of Directors of the 
Corporation. The proxy is revocable at any time prior to its use by delivery 
of a subsequently executed proxy or written notice of revocation to the 
Secretary of the Corporation. As of March 7, 1995, there were 3,460,050 
Common Shares outstanding, each of which is entitled to one vote on all 
matters to be presented at the meeting. The annual report of the Corporation, 
including financial statements, for the year ended December 31, 1994, on 
which no action will be requested at the annual meeting, is included 
herewith. It is not to be regarded as proxy solicitation material. 

                            ELECTION OF DIRECTORS 

   The Board intends to cause Messrs. Francis J. Dunleavy and Stephen F. 
Ryan, the two directors whose terms expire at the 1995 Annual Meeting, to be 
nominated for re-election at the 1995 Annual Meeting to serve until the 1998 
Annual Meeting and until their respective successors have been duly elected 
and have qualified. If either of the nominees should be unavailable on April 
18, 1995, the persons named in the proxy may vote the proxies for such other 
person as they may choose, unless the Board of Directors reduces the number 
of directors to be elected. 


<PAGE> 3

   Assuming a quorum is present, the two nominees receiving the highest 
number of votes cast at the annual meeting will be elected directors. For 
such purposes, the withholding of authority to vote or the specific direction 
not to cast a vote, such as a broker non-vote, will not constitute the 
casting of a vote in the election of directors. 

   The following table sets forth certain information concerning the nominees 
and the persons whose terms as directors will continue after the Annual 
Meeting, including their ages and principal occupations during the past five 

                                                                                Director     Term

   Under agreements expiring June 1, 1996 with Messrs. Ryan, Boyle, Deuer and 
Ross, the Corporation would be required to pay two years' salary to them upon

   Contributions to the Corporation's Retirement Plan adopted in 1986 
covering certain officers and salaried employees are not reflected in the 
preceding executive compensation tables. The Corporation's Retirement Plan is 
a funded, qualified, defined benefit pension plan that provides benefits for 
eligible employees. The Corporation's Supplemental Retirement Plan, adopted 
in 1994, is a non-qualified supplemental plan that provides benefits that 
would otherwise be denied to eligible employees by reason of certain Internal 
Revenue Code limitations on qualified plan benefits. The following table 
shows the estimated aggregate annual benefits, without offset for Social 
Security benefits, at normal retirement age payable under the Corporation's 
Retirement Plan and the Supplemental Retirement Plan based upon contributions 
both by the Corporation and the covered employee, assuming election of 
payment in the form of an annuity for the employee's life. Effective January 
1, 1992, the Corporation eliminated the requirement for employee contribution

Plan and the Supplemental Retirement Plan are based upon the average total
eligible annual compensation for all eligible years of employment.

Officers were as follows: Mr. Ryan, 6; Mr. Boyle, 8; and Mr. Ross, 3. Mr. 
Bailliart and Mr. Deuer do not participate in the Retirement Plan or the 
Supplemental Retirement Plan. 


   On October 20, 1993, the Corporation acquired all of the outstanding 
common shares of Resistance Technology, Inc., a Minnesota corporation 

   In connection with the acquisition of RTI, the Corporation issued to Mark 
S. Gorder, the President, Chief Executive Officer and formerly a principal 
shareholder of RTI, cash and four promissory notes of the Corporation, which 
notes aggregated $1,800,000, with the latest maturity being October 3, 1994 
and each of which carried an annual interest rate of 6 3/4 %. The four 
promissory notes were paid when due. 

   At the time of consummation of the acquisition of RTI, RTI entered into a 
five-year employment agreement with Mr. Gorder which provides for a minimum 
base annual compensation of $160,706. Under such employment agreement and an 
accompanying non-competition agreement between the Corporation and Mr. 
Gorder, Mr. Gorder, who currently serves as president and chief executive 
officer of RTI, has agreed not to engage in certain activities which are 
competitive with RTI for a period equal to the greater of (i) three years 
following the termination of his employment by RTI or (ii) five years from 
the date of his employment agreement. 

   Mr. Gorder is a general partner (with a one-third interest) of Arden 
Partners I, a Minnesota general partnership ("Arden") that owns and leases to 
RTI under a lease entered into in October 1991 one of RTI's two manufacturing 
facilities. In connection with the RTI acquisition, Arden executed an 
agreement with RTI to extend the term of such lease from November 1, 1996 to 
October 31, 2003 and to grant RTI two successive renewal term options of five 
years each. Under this extension agreement, the base monthly rent during each 
extension term is to be tied to the fair rental value at the commencement of 
the applicable extension term. Under the current lease, RTI pays Arden a base 
monthly rent of approximately $30,253.

   Notwithstanding any incorporation of future filings, including proxy 
statements, by reference contained in any of the Corporation's previous 
filings under the Securities Act of 1933 or the Securities Exchange Act of 
1934, the following Compensation Committee Report and the Performance Graph 
on page 9 shall not be incorporated into any such filings. Such report and 
graph are not to be deemed filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission 
and are not to be regarded as proxy solicitation material. 


   The Corporation's compensation program for officers, which is administered 
by the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors, is designed to align 
a significant portion of officer compensation with the Corporation's business 
objectives and performance. The Compensation Committee consists of four 
outside directors, none of whom has ever been an employee of the Corporation 
or any of its subsidiaries. 

   The Corporation's officer compensation program is comprised of base 
salary, potential annual cash incentive compensation and long-term incentive 
compensation in the form of stock options. Officers are also covered under 
medical, life insurance, pension and savings plans generally available to 
employees of the Corporation or the business unit managed by the officer. 

   Through the use of data on comparable companies and its evaluation of 
officers' performance, the Compensation Committee's objective is to recommend 
to the Board of Directors the setting of total base salary and potential 
incentive compensation for Mr. Ryan, the Corporation's Chief Executive 
Officer, and other officers at levels designed to achieve the Corporation's 
objectives of attracting, retaining, motivating and rewarding talented 
executives. The Committee's philosophy is that a significant portion of the 
total potential compensation of the Chief Executive Officer and other senior 
executives should be leveraged to be dependent upon the degree of the 
Corporation's or a business unit's financial success in a particular year. 
The Corporation had record earnings years in 1989, 1990 and 1991, sustained a 
loss in 1992, returned to profitability in 1993 and experienced further 
improvement in 1994. Thus the bonus or incentive compensation paid to 
officers such as Mr. Ryan, Mr. Boyle and Mr. Ross, whose bonus or incentive 
compensation is tied to corporate performance, can vary markedly from year to 
year in accordance with the financial performance of the Corporation as a 
whole. Mr. Deuer receives bonus compensation on a discretionary basis, based 
upon, among other things, the performance of his business unit. Mr. 
Bailliart's bonus compensation is tied to the achievement of target net 
income (measured in U.S. dollars) of his business unit. Although such target 
net income was not achieved in 1994, the Committee recommended, and the Board 
of Directors approved, a discretionary bonus for Mr. Bailliart with respect 
to 1994 based upon, among other things, Mr. Bailliart's performance. 

   The Corporation's Executive Incentive Plan, which was formulated over the 
course of 1992 and early 1993 and amended in 1994 and which covers the 
officers of the Corporation other than Mr. Bailliart and Mr. Deuer, ties one 
half of potential payments to participants to return on shareholders' equity 
("ROE") and the other half of potential payments to consolidated net income. 
Minimum levels of performance must be achieved before any amounts are paid 
under the consolidated net income or ROE components of the Plan. Once the 
applicable minimum performance threshold has been achieved, payments under 
each component of the Plan are a function of a maximum bonus for each officer 
dependent on a percentage of the officer's base compensation and ROE or 
consolidated net income achieved for the year. Under the Plan, the Committee 
has the discretion to recommend to the Board that an additional bonus be paid 
to participants.

   Officers covered by the Executive Incentive Plan received bonus 
compensation for 1994 pursuant to the Plan as the level of performance, 
measured by both consolidated net income and ROE, resulted in bonus 
compensation slightly below the midpoint between bonus payable at threshold 
levels of performance and maximum potential bonus based upon 1994 targets 
established by the Board of Directors and recommended by the Compensation 

   The Corporation's stock option plans are its long-term incentive plans for 
officers and key employees. The stock option plans are designed further to 
align the interests of the Corporation's executives and its shareholders by 
creating a direct link between long-term executive compensation and long-term 
increases in shareholder values. Since all options are granted at fair market 
value at the time of grant, there is no built-in profit and thus the value of 
the option is tied solely and directly to increases in value of the 
Corporation's Common Shares. Stock options are granted to the Corporation's 
officers from time to time as deemed appropriate by the Committee based on 
various factors, including particularly the executive's ability to influence 
the Corporation's long- term growth and profitability. 

   The Compensation Committee periodically reviews the base compensation of 
the Corporation's officers. At the end of 1994, based on various factors, 
including the Corporation's continued earnings improvement in 1994 and the 
relationship between the level of Mr. Ryan's base compensation and the median 
compensation of chief executive officers of companies in the American Stock 
Exchange Capital Goods Index with annual revenues between $40 million and 
$120 million, the Committee recommended an increase of $10,000 in the base 
annual rate of compensation of Mr. Ryan.

   The following graph shows the cumulative total return for the last five 
years, calculated as of December 31 of each such year, for the Corporation's 
Common Shares, the Standard & Poor's 500 Index and the American Stock 
Exchange Capital Goods Index. The graph assumes that the value of the 
investment in each of the three was $100 at December 31, 1989 and that all 
dividends were reinvested.

   The Corporation's Board of Directors met ten times in 1994. Directors who 
are not officers of the Corporation receive an annual retainer of $20,000 
plus $800 per Board or Committee meeting attended on a particular day and 
$400 for each additional Board or Committee meeting attended on the same day. 

   The Board of Directors has standing Audit and Compensation Committees. 
There is no standing Nominating Committee. 

   The Audit Committee, comprised of Mr. Austin, Chairman, and Messrs. 
Bissinger and Whitney, met two times in 1994. The Audit Committee receives 
information from the outside auditors and from management of the Corporation 
relating to the Corporation's financial statements and considers 
recommendations of the auditors and financial management as to audit and 
accounting matters. 

   The Compensation Committee, comprised of Mr. Dunleavy, Chairman, and 
Messrs. Bissinger, Carriker and Whitney, met three times during 1994. The 
Compensation Committee reviews and makes recommendations to the Board of 
Directors concerning officer compensation and officer and employee bonus 
programs and administers the Corporation's 1985 Stock Option Plan and the 
1994 Stock Option Plan. 


   Under Securities and Exchange Commission rules, certain shareholder 
proposals may be included in the Corporation's proxy statement. Any 
shareholder desiring to have such a proposal included in the Corporation's 
proxy statement for the Annual Meeting to be held in 1996 must deliver a 
proposal in full compliance with Rule 14a-8 under the Securities Exchange Act 
of 1934 to the Corporation's executive offices not later than November 16, 


   The management of the Corporation knows of no matters other than those 
stated above to come before the meeting. However, if any other matters should 
properly come before the meeting, the enclosed proxy confers discretionary 
authority with respect thereto. 

   The cost of printing and mailing this notice and soliciting the proxies is 
to be borne by the Corporation. Employees of the Corporation may solicit 
proxies by personal interview, mail, telephone and telegraph. The Corporation 
has retained Hill and Knowlton, Inc. to assist in the solicitation of proxies 
at an estimated cost of approximately $3,750 plus expenses. The Corporation 
will request brokerage houses and other nominees to forward soliciting 
material to the beneficial owners of the shares held of record by such 
persons. The Corporation will reimburse them for their expenses in doing so.
