    Condensate meter

    Just repaired a few leaks on this system.
    140-300 psi steam coming in, reduced with spence valves
    To 5 psi for radiators then to condensate meter then to indirect drain

    district steam

    5 psi is still a bit high for radiator/ main vents/traps to handle. can it be dialed down?--NBC

    Lower presure

    Yup,going back when heat is on to test return Lines
    & try to cut down the presure it may need that presure
    To push condensate back lots of back pitched lines

    steam valve

    The Old Spence amd hoffman press. reducing valves required a set horizontal pipe length coming off the outlet piping as well as the pilot piping, If the piping run was to short the valve may hunt and have a hard time maintaining lower outlet pressures.

    Thanks good info. Not sure how much we'll end up
    Doing. The piping is a mess but they have no
    Complaints about the heat
