Why Real Steam Pros Don't Use Copper for Steam Piping
cause the joints start to leak after a few years!
This is a Columbia CSFH-4150 steamer in Martinsburg, WV, about two hours from Baltimore. The piping was not only leaking, but was so badly configured that they had to down-fire the boiler so it wouldn't send water up into the system, where it caused banging.
Another problem was that the run of the copper tee where the two mains were connected was sending most of the steam to the shorter 2-inch one. So the longer 3-inch main was quite slow.
