Steam trap identification
This trap is mounted on the left side of a steam radiator in a 100yr old home. The photo shown with the union to the right is the position it was installed in with the 1/2 female ips connection in the downward position. Ive never seen a trap like this and its the only one in the home. In order for this trap to be mounted in the normal position the union and radiator spud would have to go onto the piping coming through the floor and a nipple into the radiator. The radiator delivers no heat but i dont know if it ever did, owners are new to the home. My question is has anyone ever seen one like this? I wanted to put in a regular hoffman but the throw for the spud is too long and the piping is encased in concrete in a 2nd floor bath, so i have no give. Best i can come up with is a regular hoffman and a radiator the same size less one section and run a nipple and coupling on the valve side
