Balancing Steam Systems Using a Vent-Capacity Chart, by Gerry Gill and Steve Pajek

This is an e-booklet in PDF format. We will e-mail it to you on the next business day after you place your order. Thanks.

Gerry Gill and Steve Pajek are two of the sharpest steam-heating guys in America. They've been getting the most out of the older steam-heating systems in the Cleveland, Ohio area for years, and as part of their work, the did some remarkable research into balancing steam systems using these charts. Gerry and Steve tested just about all the air vents and steam traps used today (and yesterday) on steam heating, and they accurately rated the venting capacity at extremely low pressure. You'll be amazed by what you can do with this information when it comes to saving fuel.

And because Gerry and Steve are such generous guys, they've asked me to donate 100% of the price of this e-booklet to charity. I'm more than happy to do that.

And again, this is an electronic booklet. We'll e-mail it to the address you've given us as a PDF on the next business day after you place your order. It will be from If you don't see it, please check your spam file. Thanks.

This chart has completely opened up the way I look at venting, and air in steam systems. It has become a frequently used service tool for troubleshooting problem radiators and systems. Using this chart, I have concrete proof to support my diagnosis on any job. It's also a great way to present new options for optimizing those older steam systems for your clients. Who doesn't want even heat? With this chart, you'll never be content with half-hot radiators again.

Balancing Steam Systems is a very useful tool for the professional and also for (me) the layman. The instructions were clear and it was easy to calculate how much air I have in my entire one-pipe system. After doing the calculations it was easy to figure how much ventilation was required to allow my system to breathe and heat properly. I recomend this exersize to everyone that has steam heat.

This is probably the first work on venting since the days of coal heating. For those who believe engineering is a science and not an art, this book will tell you exactly how to size the venting of radiators so that the system heats evenly.

No more trial and error. No more wasted vents. For the true steam plumber.
