Does anyone remenber the Milwaukee Valve Company

I am looking for an old piping diagram from about 1925 for the Milwaukee Valve Co.'s vapor/vacuum heating system.  Another name for this company was "MILVACO"

    If you can't find MILVACO's diagram

    don't sweat it. If your system is like other MILVACO installations I've seen, it's pretty much standard Vapor, similar to Dunham, Webster etc. using an Air Trap and Return Trap.

    Milwaukee Valves

    Milwaukee Valve Company is still in business. You can get them though local plumbing/heating supply companies. Just specif the brand or they likely with cross you to another manufacturer.
