richmond radiators

I just finished taking a radiator survey in my home. I plan on replacing my gas fired steam boiler after the heating season is done. I have 3 Richmond radiators. I didn't see them listed in Dan's EDR book. Does anyone have any info on them? They are steam only rads, column type. If i cant get specific info I will go with the generic edr for colum rads listed in Lost Art. Thanks

    They should be standard column rads

    so any of the usual column charts should work. But if you're not sure, post some pictures so we can see them.

    They are standard column(at least to the naked eye). They are all 3 or 2 column and I assessed them at 40 ft edr.

    Go to Resources at the top of the page, then radiators. There's a section on Richmond Radiators which contains all of the EDR information. I forgot  I had sent the pamphlet to Dan for posting.

    Thanks

    I just took a look in library. The ratings are just about identical to standard column radiator ratings.
