    It is essentially a 2 pipe radiator vent system using the drips as steam traps. You might as well just go 2 pipe at that point. You are going to need to maintain a vent one way or another weather it is a radiator vent or a steam trap.

    I did a study of 100 most common steam boilers and the average steam velocity is about 40 fps for the near boiler piping I tried looking at making my own steam separater and the problem I had was slowing the velocity of the steam enough to allow the droplets to fall out Good luck
