Stema Fin-tube question

Mario_3 Member Posts: 1
I have a 6ft length on 1 1/4 steel fin tube radiator on a one pipe steam system. What options do I have for replacement? I would like to get similar EDR numbers/ ANy input out there??

    Many options

    Get to the manufacturer's website and see how many BTU's that fin-tube six-footer puts out when steam is the energy source (as opposed to water) This is typically the output rating stated at 215F - if not specifically stated for steam.

    Sun-Rad type radiators are still available, as are tube/column type. CIBB is another option. Simply "convert" BTU's (if required) to EDR by dividing BTU's by 240; then, look at alternative forms and match the BTU/EDR as needed. If the fin-tube that's there, is adequate, make no BTU/EDR "adjustments" If the area seems cool or warmer than desired; now's the time to make an adjustment.

    Let us know how it all works out
