Comments about Gorton No. 5 Angle Vapor Equalizing Valve:

I've not had the best results with Gorton vents and cannot figure out what the problems are. They don't seat well on my main vent or radiators. I'm waiting to hear from a rep.

Comments about Gorton No. 5 Angle Vapor Equalizing Valve:

We bought our 3800 square foot home, that was built in 1890, in August of 2013. There are 19 radiators on two floors and almost all of them were fitted with adjustable valves, and we just were not getting even heat throughout the house; especially in the rooms farthest from the boiler. So we decided to purchase 19 of these Gorton valves this October, ten of them were these No. 5, and they have worked wonderfully so far. The radiators we fitted with the 5 valves have been warming up just like the rest of the radiators in the house. Hopefully they continue to work like this through the winter. The only complaint I have is that some of the valves are dirty and look like they've been used before. But that hasn't hindered their performance.

I've used Gorton vents for years and they are excellent at keeping my steam radiators heating evenly and quietly. Use the charts at their website to know the right size to use and where. Very pleased.

Comments about Gorton No. 5 Angle Vapor Equalizing Valve:

Gorton valves are the best solution to uniformly heat your house with steam radiators.
Pex shipped my order the same day and it arrived the following day which was a great bonus as I was able to put the valves to good use rightaway.

Adjustable valves are prone to failure. These fixed size valves from Gorton are a great way to set up the whole house to heat up just the way you want it and utilize the steam from the boiler in the most efficient way. These valves come in different sizes and Gorton's website has complete description of all the valve sizes along with a reference diagram of how to choose the valve size depending on the location of the radiator with reference to the boiler.
For my house, this proved to be the work-horse valve (No. 5). I use it on most of my radiators.
So you would definitely want to order a bunch of these and a few spares, just in case. Also double-check your radiator to make sure if you need this (angle) valve or the straight valve!
See my reviews of No. 4 and No. 6 valves for more details.

    What is the difference between an angle valve and a straight valve?

      A:

      One has a bend in it (angle valve). Choose the valve for efficacy and fit,
      and keep in mind the steam needs to go somewhere, so angle versus fixed
      will be something to consider if you (don't) have the space.

      A:

      The angle is mainly used on the sides of radiators. The straight is used on
      the top of radiators. The device has to remain in the vertical position with
      that little vent on top. Actually that picture is almost upside down. It is
      the piping that determines which one you need.
