Saw this beauty today.
Sweet. What's the edr on it.? Don't tell me it's coming out.........0
Yes. It's in a 121 year old church and the existing steam system is a disaster. Without looking too hard, I saw at least 35 pipe repair clamps on the existing piping without opening anything up. The boiler is in worse shape.
I'm going to be proposing a home-run manifold hot water system with TRV's and a Lochinvar FTXL. 4 of the existing radiators are not nippled across the top. The remainder are all American Radiator Corto rads and I've had good luck converting them in the past.
My competition are all pushing for forced air. I'm 90% certain I convinced the church to not do that.Steve Minnich0
Nice what boiler you shooting with?Gary Wilson

I would like to see an IR picture of that one in operation.0
Well what good are ya Paul?0
It was a Bundy radiator catalog. And evidently he didn't invent it. It offered the Bundy Loop or that style.0
My memory is horrible, it doesn't have that style in it, after all. Here it is though, and it's still impressive. http://www.archive.org/stream/bundyradiatorsfo00aagrrich#page/172/mode/2up0
Keep me in mind if you have more like that to part with.Stephen Minnich said:
@Gordy - the rad pictured is one of the four that is coming out and going straight to my office. IF...I get the job.
