McDaniel #16 Steam trap

Does anyone have any installation info for this steam trap?  I have a building in NYC with the original 1915 Erie City Iron works boilers and three McDaniel #16 steam traps connected to the dry return lines.

    well, may not be quiet as good as the instructions,

    but here is the patent, which will tell you how it works, and when you know how something works you can usually figure out how to employ it..kind of like reverse engineering the instructions..hope it helps.
