Steam Radiator Flir Video?
I'm going to be giving a little steam heating workshop for a local historic district, and am looking for a FLIR video of a one-pipe, "steam" radiator (as opposed to hot water style) filling with steam, to show how it fills one section at a time, but can't find anything on youtube. I found a youtube of a hot water style on one-pipe filling, but I'd like to contrast the two. Does anyone have such a thing?
There's at least one on this site.steve0

The last one I watched here was in a Gym with wall hung rads.
What was quite impressive was the speed that the steam moved thru the main....(assuming it was shot in real time).
That alone is a benefit of steam over water.
Shows the benefit of quick venting for mains, and the logic of slower vents for radiation.0

Thanks, but what I need is a "steam" style radiator, where the sections are not internally connected at the top, to contrast with a "hot water" style, which I already have a FLIR movie of from youtube. I want to show the difference in how the steam fills the radiator: "hot water" type fills from the top down, "steam" type fills section-by-section.0
