One pipe steam system: Whistling noise @ air vents??
thanks alan! both ends of the main vented properly. any help much appreciated!!!!!!!!!
When air passes thru my hoffman adjustable valves, they make a whistling noise for about 5-20 seconds that sounds like the sounds whales make underwater, sort of a long whistling noise. The sound is very irritating to me-could someone PLEASE make suggestions? I can't find anything in the WE GOT Steam book (THANK YOU DAN FOR WRITING THIS LIFE-SAVING BOOK!).
One suggestion (thank you Frank!) was trying vent-rite adjustable valves instead...thoughts on this? I can't locate vent-rite valve to purchase.
Are your main vents in order? If not, all the air in your mains will be vented out of your radiator vents and that's a lot of air.

Ellis, I should be able to get them for you
soon as I get home from Tim McElwain's Gas Training Institute, I'll get on it. And let's not forget the pipe insulation for the crawlspace.
P.S. Have you become Daddy yet?0
