I saved $750.00 last winter by adding multiple Gorton 2's, insulating the main lines, and adding a vaporstat. Gorton 2's do not like high pressure. They will hiss and spit at around 1.6 psi. So for those of you with hissing complaints, lower your pressure and they work fine. If you are unable to lower your existing pressure controller this low, get a vaporstat. Out of the box, my vaporstat was set to on at 3 ounces, and off at 8 ounces. After installing the vaporstat my Gorton 2 hissing problem disappeared.

I used two of the G2`s for my main venting. I put them on an antler setup. They are huge, so I had to route them up in between the ceiling joists. There have been a lot of complaints about hissing/not closing all the way. It is true. No matter what I tried these valves will not close all the way and they both hiss. I will probably be changing them both out once the heating season starts up again.

Great vent for long mains.
By Double D
from Buffalo, NY
The use of this Gorton 2 put me right where I needed to be with the venting of long mains. It took the place of 2 competitive vents with ease.
The smart mantra in steam heating is, vent the mains fast, the radiators slow. This is one of, if not the, fastest vents for mains there is, and from my online reading, has a very good reputation in the steam heating industry. But my experience was different. One of two I ordered was sealed shut and did not vent at all. PexSupply promptly sent an apology and replacement. The replacement vented slower than the other. It's main did not heat completely; when I switched the vents, the other one didn't. I increased the anticipator setting to get longer cycles and the difference is less noticeable now.
I installed this vent at the end of my 65-foot main steam lines, just before they drop down to return the condensate to the boiler. The old ones were permanently closed and didn't vent. I don't have a lot of steam heating expertise, but this vent is known as a high-capacity and high-quality one for steam mains. As far as I'm aware you can't vent mains too fast. This closes when the steam hits it and is quiet. One of the two vents did arrive nonfunctional, but I don't think that is the manufacturer's fault. It appeared to have been used and returned. PexSupply is exchanging it for a new one and paying the shipping so no big problem.
THE MAIN VENT -- slight rattle ok
from Jersey City, NJ
As good as it gets for a steam main air vent. Excellent.Note that it will rattle or clink slightly when turned in your hand. This is normal. I returned a perfectly good vent before realizing this.See Gerry Gil's YouTube where he opens one up and you will see why it does this and why it's perfectly ok. Find the video via his web-site as it does not appear in searches.
Main line steam Vent
By Dave B.
from Grosse Ile, MI.
This is one bad boy steam vent!!...Large and in-charge!...Only potential drawback could be Space limitations as this unit is slightly over 6"s Tall!...Creative piping can help with this issue, but a simple diagram as to best placement on single pipe steam applications could do wonders!!
from Needham, MA
Bought two and had to return one because there was a broken piece inside. Pex supply was great with the exchange.
A practical time tested eliminator valve
By Village Jim
from Cooperstown, New York
A well built valve. Gets the cold air out of the steam mains fast. A simple, practical, sturdy, air eliminator valve gets the steam to where you want it fast. We have an 1894 municipal building with the original pipes. Some of our main vents were missing and others were old radiator valves. I put two at the ends of each of our two mains and two in the middle. Fast cold air out means fast money in your pocket and a warmer building. I am a professional woodworker, and even I could figure that one out. We still have to work on the radiator venting, but we are off to good start. Keep it simple. Do the obvious first.
NO 2 Straight Ahead
By MG Light
from New York
When I first opened up the package I was amazed how big these air vents were. The first time the air started to blow through them I though I had left the faucet on. They are as powerful as they look and they raised the temperature of my unit by at least 3 degrees.
