best for radiators close to the boiler

By Amit

Comments about Gorton No.4 Angle Vapor Equalizing Valve:

This is a great valve to use for radiators closest to the boiler. This valve limits the steam usage to its radiator and allows the steam to more quickly reach the radiators further away from the boiler. This is an essential step in balancing the steam flow around the house in order to ensure uniform heating of the house.
Please read my detailed review about Gorton No. 5 valves. Make sure to pick the right type of valve (Angle or Straight) depending on the valve location on your radiator!

Pex shipped my order out the same day and I received it the following day which was very helpful!

Overall Gorton valves are definitely the way to go to optimize your steam heating system. Gorton's website has excellent resources with sample layout for the whole house and suggested valve numbers for various locations in the house

      A:

      Number 4 valves are designed to be installed on radiators in rooms in which a thermostat is located, and on radiators that affect the thermostat. Number 5 valves should be installed on radiators near the boiler and in warm rooms. They have 4-times the venting capacity of number 4 valves.

      A:

      The thread is measured by the inside diameter of the pipe.

    • A:

      This information is not correct. A measurement of 1/4" clear inside the value stem calls for an 1/8" new valve. I had to run down to my local hardware store to confirm this before ordering as my old valves measure 1/4" clear - and I'm ordering 1/8" new valves. Hope this helps...
