I need a steam pro in NW Jersey

Hi all,



Please forgive me if this is the wrong place to look for help.



I've got what appears to be (after reading "Lost art.."  an Arco Model K vapor orifice system. The system is shown on p.269 fig. 60, the valve is p.268 fig.59.



The system works--that's all I'll say. The pressure seems to be awfully high (pressuretrol approx 3psig) and it takes a pretty long time for some of the upper floor radiators to heat. Most of the valves are shot and I've been forced to replace them with normal (non-orifice) valves, which I now understand is bad news.



The boiler may be approaching the end of it's useful life.



I am a complete layman who will invest the time to read and learn about this system, but I need a real pro to come out here and straighten it out.



Anyone out there interested in coming out to Mansfield Township (warren county just outside of Hackettstown) ?



thanks,

Todd Wilding
