Vacuum breaker compatible with a Honeywell trv thermostatic radiator valve?

Hi Heating Help,

Sorry, for the repost. My last one got derailed and I wanted to follow up. The vacuum breaker needs to go between the valve/vent (I've seen it called both, right or wrong) and the radiator. Which brings us back to the title, does anybody know which vacuum breaker we should get with a honeywell V2042HSL10 One-Pipe Steam Radiator Valve and what supplier might stock them.

    There wouldn't be a specific unit. What you need to look for is a vacuum breaker with a very low cracking pressure which has the ability to take a nipple or something of the sort on one side, to screw into the radiator, and a nipple or something of the sort on the other side to screw into the radiator vent. You may find you have to use several reducers or bushings or nipples...
