Anyone have a source (new or used) for Trane replacement steam element for 117 EDR (or less)
1950 school house, type SW 10" x 56" element, five 1/2" OD finned tubes.
Cabinet is 32" tall. 3/4" feed, 1/2 trap.

Cracking tubes, too brittle to solder.

I could modify something smaller to go in existing cabinet if need be.

Thanks.

    I have used Spirotherm "speed heat" elements to make up a heating element replacement for convectors with good results. They don't have steam ratings in their brochure, but they are rated to 220 deg and are made with "M" tubing which is thicker than most paper-thin coils are made of.
