Radiator Pitch

How much radiator pitch? 1/8th inch in 24" run? More? Less?
I wondered of too much pitch could cause condensate too drain too fast and cause interference with incoming steam flow

    I'd like to see a bit more -- but not much more. If everything is piped correctly, there shouldn't be a problem. The amount of condensate is remarkably small, really, so if it can drain freely at all it should work.

    There is no limit to the pitch. If you put a level on the radiator pitch it until the bubble is touching the line or 1/8"/foot
