EDR of this found radiator

Not sure how to rate the EDR of this. My neighbor is gutting a room and I saved this from the trash heap. I wonder if she got rid of it because it "didn't work." I poured at least a gallon of water from it.



I'm not entirely sure how this was mounted, it doesn't seem to have any feet.



There is a bunch of 1.5" pipe too, I wonder if I should rescue that as well as I have some plans to add some new rads.

    Size

    Could you measure the length and width for me?

    dimensions

    About 25" across the top, 17" high. The outer columns are about 2 1/2" wide. I couldn't get a good reading on the side of the inner columns, seems about 2".

    Thatcher made these

    and strangely, they don't list the rating, but similar wall radiators in their catalog show a rating of five square feet EDR for each piece. So that's a total of 10 square feet for what you have in the photo. One square foot of steam EDR is 240 Btuh.



    Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks, this helps

    a lot. I'm not entirely sure where I can use such a small radiator, or even how to mount the thing, but maybe my local steam guys can think of something creative (I'm looking at you Steamhead).



    The worse that will happen to this is I'll donate it to a local architectural salvage company in Baltimore so it will get a Second Chance. Beats going to the dump.

    Maybe

    you can use it when you re-do your first-floor bathroom.



    See if you can find the wall brackets, if you haven't already. That's how it was mounted, and they are hard to find.



    Get the pipe too, if it's in good shape it may be salvageable.

    No brackets

    If there are any brackets they are buried in a mountain of plaster. I don't really want to mess my neighbors trash pile up too much. I sifted through a bunch of it and found nothing but an ancient outlet box.



    I did manage to save an 8' length of pipe. They used a sawz-all to but it into sections so the ends are a bit rough but the majority of it looks in good shape.
