Replacing convector with panel radiator on monoflow system

astodolski Member Posts: 4
I am researching a heating upgrade in a kitchen.
Monoflow run supplying venturi tees (on the inlet side, not return).
Semi-recessed hydronic convectors.
Two are in kitchen. One is mid-point on run and considering its replacement.
Subject convector is 26.5 inches tank to tank by 6 inches - not including cabinet.

Replace one of the convectors with a steel panel radiator. Keeping it on the monoflow
Replace the 1/2 inch copper that connects radiator to tees with 1/2 Pex.

I would like to do this without having to completely change from monoflow to a 2 pipe system. The radiator I am considering is a Buderus 21 or similar in a Beacon Morris. Is this possible? It's not near the end of the run so I don't think I would have much of a problem but still wanted to ask any pros who do this.

    No problem , Just make sure the risers continually rise up into the radiator to the correct connection on the radiator . To eliminate any air trap and with the Buderus it would not work if the supply and return are crossed... If using the temperature sensor head you would need to add the diverter as not to take too much away from the rest of the system .
    I have enough experience to know , that I dont know it all
