Does anyone have any experience with these radiators and valves?

    No, but they look like their pretty good.

    Probably need a Brinks truck to pay for them :)

    Burnham/us boiler also makes new ci radiators. Those might be more cost effective.

    The old hot water radiators can be converted to steam use by drilling and tapping the last section of the radiator on the opposite side of the steam inlet.

    About 1/2 way down from the top of the radiator in the middle section where the casting is thickest drill and tap a hole 1/8" npt for the insertion of a vent valve,

    There is no problem with the steam pressure as it is significantly lower than the water heating pressures.
