    Please? How about you tell us what you come up with and we’ll tell you if you’re right :wink: Also it’s not length/width/depth or “ribs”. It’s height/sections and either tube style or column style (and how many tubes or columns). Finally, you’re looking for totally sqft of steam, not btus exactly.

    Ok that’s a column type radiator. 3 columns, 5 sections, height 38”? That would be 25 sqft.
