After lots of time researching how these steam boilers are supposed to be piped, I think I have gained the knowledge required to replace my very wrong near boiler piping. My main question is whether I should go with a drop header or the standard set up that the manufacturer shows. I have quite a bit of head room to come off the top of the boiler. This is a Weil McClain EGH-95 series 4. It is in a commercial building. The certified "Expert" (or knucklehead) that installed it completely ignored the manufacturers instructions and installed no equalizer or Hartford loop. This was installed 5 years ago, before I worked here. Where the boiler connects to the system, the connection size is 5" pipe. Would it be a good idea to go with a 5" header and riser to the system. I figured it would help slow the steam. Any other advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated, I will be starting this project in the next couple weeks to get ready for winter. We are currently making very wet steam. Also what is the preferred method of boiler cleaning among everyone here. I want to make sure we're in good shape. Here are some pictures of the current setup. As you can see, it is quite wrong. I just installed a skim port as well, because the installer didn't find it necessary.
