    This piped object is on a steam system, with the steam header connected to the left side. What is this?

    trap or coil --looking good

    maybe the guy that installed it could not get a trap and installed a coil instead , collected his cash and called it a day. the hangers alone are worth at least a thousand. not every dead steamfitter was a genius. i have seen more than a few puzzlers in n.y.c.

    That's the same one

    pictured in the "what is it?" thread. Since the return connection (seen above dirt leg) is plugged, it's safe to assume this hasn't worked in years.

    It was probably used to heat water in an overhead tank by gravity.
