Steam Indirect radiator capacity

I have 6 of these in a building I'm looking at and can't find the info on estimated EDR versus the duct or grill size. I have it for Hot water indirects, but not steam. CAn someone point me in the right direction.

Thanks

    If you strike out, just use the capacity of the steam runout to the indirect at maybe 1 PSI. They didn't make those pipes any bigger than they needed to.

    I'm going back monday to check on a few dimensions, I might be able to see iron in some of them.

    I use an old supply house catalog from the 30's that 'ol Joe. (another dead man) gave me to size those, but one still really needs the size of the iron to use the catalog. Next best thing is what Steamhead said, size off the pipe load.

    PS- I think i have some brass goods to send back to you. But i lost your address.

    Well, I got into them and saw the iron and found something close in EDR. The system has seen a lot of hacks over the years, trying to get it running better. I'll try to get in touch, things are getting pretty wild here.
