Great

This valve was the perfect fit for my radiators. I ordered 3 a year ago and they work great so I ordered 2 more to replace other old radiator valves.

Last year I purchased valves from here and they worked perfect. My recent order in Feb, 2015 was for the same SKU part. The valves I got were not milled properly. The spud was larger by 1/16. Makes a huge difference when trying to thread spud into radiator. Frustrating..Old valves from here were Even flow. These were Matco. Thank goodness SupplyHouse is easy to work with.

A perfect match for an 80-year old steam radiator...

By Mark the Super

from Chicago, IL

Verified Buyer

Comments about 1-1/4" (FIP x Male Union) Steam Angle Radiator Valve:

What to do when an 80-year old radiator steam valve starts leaking in one of your Chicago apartment buildings?

Replace it with a Matco-Norca direct replacement. It fit perfectly with the old radiator fitting so I didn't even have to mess with the radiator itself (which can be a nightmare.) Would definitely recommend this product to any DIYer or professional HVAC technician. Carefully use a propane torch and a pipe wrench to get the old valve off if it won't budge. This product significantly cuts your install time. Good luck!

Comments about 1-1/4" (FIP x Male Union) Steam Angle Radiator Valve:

ALTHOUGH I AM NOT FOND ABOUT BUYING ITEMS NOT MANUFACTURED IN AND BY AMERICAN COMPANIES I HAVE TO ADMIT THAT I AM SURPRISED AT THE QUALITY OF THE MATCO-NORCA STEAM ANGLED RADIATOR VALVES. ONE OF THE BULDINGS THAT I OWN WILL BE 100 YEARS OLS IN 2020. ALL OF THE ANGLED RADIATOR VALVES ARE ORIGINAL. NEEDLESS TO SAY AFTER 90+ YEARS THEY NEEDED TO BE REPLACED. THE HANDLES THAT WERE MADE OF WOOD ARE ALL GONE. SOME STEMS ARE BENT AND ALL OF THE 14 VALVES EITHER DO NOT OPERATE OR FAIL TO DO WHAT THEY ARE SUPPOSE TO.I AM IN THE PROCESS OF CHANGING ALL OF THE VALVES WITH THE MATCO- NORCA VALVES. THEY ARE OF HIGH QUALITY AND SO FAR ARE OPEARTING FLAWLESSY

  • 1" (FIP x Male Union) Steam Angle Radiator Valve

    Q:

    Can I use this valve for A hot water system? It says steam valve on description.
    Asked on 11/7/2013 by Michael from United States

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      Nope, This is strictly a steam valve (pressures less than 15 psi). It is not constructed to withstand the 60+ psi of water pressure, nor is it constructed for easy water flow when opened.
      Sorry, steam only.

      A:

      It should work just fine. I have had the same question in the past and been assured multiple times by different sources that hot water use is fine. As a result I have installed them for hot water service (radiators mostly) and they have been perfect. Sometimes the packing nut around the valve stem needs to be tightened (don't over-tighten) to stop a small seep, but that's usually because the nut has loosened during shipping or handling.
       
      One note, when you make the union connection, dab a light coat of pipe dope on one side (either one) of the union face to help it seal. This will help any slight "out-of-alignment" issues and allow you to get a good seal without having to over-tighten the fitting. Not always required but keeps you from having to take it apart and redo it and doesn't hurt a thing.
      Good luck!

      Yes, you can use it on your hot water heating system. I assume you have a system with cast iron radiators. The appears to a design which does not provide 100% shut off, so be aware of that.

    Q:

    Just bought a 95 year old house. The hot water heating system needs valves on many of the raditors. Are these the type of valves I would use - threading the same? Has the threading stayed the same over the years. I am assuming the radiators are original, is that a safe assumption?

    where do i find replacement radiators?
    Asked on 5/10/2013 by Do it yourself Dave from Peru IL

      A:

      For starters, these are intended for a steam system BUT yes you could use them for a hotwater system. Yes, the threading is the same so if you choose the correct size, the threads will work. Off hand I do not know where to get new iron radiatiors. You may want to add new baseboard units to save space but you may want to keep the look of the old house. Sometimes junk yards and salvage yards have the original iron radiators. Yes, an old radiator would work just fine. You might have to paint it to keep up the appearance - I hope you enjoy working on your old place. I have rebuilt many and have had a lot of fun doing it. Glad to answer questions for you.

      A:

      These are the valves you want.  Replacement radiators are exspensive and hard to find.  Many people switch to a hot water baseboard style heater that can be found at your local home improvement store.  You are probably looking at a 3/4 to 1" pipe threads on your raditors.

      A:

      I own 91 year house heated by steam. A couple of years ago I replaced the valves
      on all radiators using the valve pictured. Easy installation if you use  pipe
      wrenches large enough to provide good leverage for removing/installing valves.
      Or you can insert the handle of wrench into the end of a piece of pipe to
      provide leverage. Salvage yards/Habitat for Humanity Restore Store sometimes
      have radiators in stock.
