Can I use an orifice plate in finned steam convectors?
I'm in my first heating system in a 1936 home with its original 2-pipe steam wet return boiler. American Radiator is the brand. It all works amazingly well but I'm quite sure some or all of the steam traps are failed in the open position. I replaced two of them and they are working. Instead of doing that on the other 20 radiators could I install orifices in the inlet valves? I'm afraid the fin tube heating units might be too small for that solution. I'll attach a photo of a typical unit.
