Trane radiator valve

Todd_39 Member Posts: 2
I have a customer that has "Trane Hermetic" radiator valves installed on the rads. There is a patent no. 2027190. I do not believe that they are the original valves. One has failed. Can they be found? This is 2 pipe steam.

    You might still be able

    to get rebuild parts for those valves from Trane. If not, try Tunstall Associates, www.tunstall-inc.com .

    That round radiator is rare! Any other interesting features of this Vapor system?

    The building has two of the round radiators. I wasn't sure if this was a vapor system. I'll have to get out my copy of the lost art and read that chapter again. There is nothing else on this system to indicate that it was a vapor system. It iscurrently 2 pipe pumped return. F&T traps at the end of the mains. Would there be a problem if I replaced the valve with a common readily availible valve?

    We installed a new boiler recently. It is at least the fourth boiler that the building has seen. The first would have been coal. I found a manual for one of the first gas boilers that was installed. It was an ACK-O-MATIC by the Ackerman Gas Boiler Corp. of McDonald PA. And this building that I have been working in is located in? You guessed it. McDonald PA.
