Fero Radiator Bleed

Hello,

In researching many video and how to's, I am not able to clearly identify how to bleed my radiators. My radiators look like this:

Would I just loosen the large the oversize nut/bolt at the top with a matching size wrench?

Any help is greatly appreciated

    Since you posted in strictly steam I have to ask - Do you have a steam system? If so, you dont need to bleed anything.

    .....embarrassing
    Guess i am not sure where to post my question. I have radiators that are partially cold and hot, which was consistent with the issue that was suggested to be remedied by bleeding them.

    All inclusive picture of the radiator showing each end fitting and also of the boiler and piping around it. Then someone will tell you.

    What problem are you experiencing other than partially warm radiators?
    If it is in fact a steam system, you will generally have partially filled radiators in mild weather. The sections closest to the supply pipe will be hotter than the rest.

    How many pipes are connected to each radiator? Again, pictures of your radiators from all angles are helpful. And if you don't mind, pictures of the boiler and piping in your basement.
