    Excellent work and read.

    Although i would point out that i would have left the steam traps out of the equation here since you now have a wet return with very low pressure. What type of steam traps did you specifically utilize? Mechanical or thermostatic? i would be hesitant to add steam traps to the system as the original did not have them and operated at a very low pressure as you stated. With this low pressure the banging noise would have been eliminated anyways dont you agree.

    excellent retrofit.

    thanks for the article.
