Best type of radiator trap

FizzFizz Member Posts: 504
Currently have Richardson System with 3 add-on radiators that have traditional traps.  As replacement traps, which are better, bellows or disc?

    Radiator Trap to Replace Richardson Ell

    I would recommend a Hoffman 17C with the Durostat.  It has one of the most restrictive outputs of the available traps.  I know that sounds counter-intuitive, but the Richardson ell is somewhat restrictive to air flow and the 17C seems to match that performance in my experience, esp. if you plan to leave in place some of the existing Richardson ells.

    I plan on leaving all in place unless they need replacement, which i don't think will be the case.  Thanks for advice, will check it out.
