In Reply to: ball valve for radiator shut-off posted by Hoot on May 17, 2004 at 16:33:47:
: Can I use a ball valve for the radiator shut-off on a steam system? I'm installing a copper tube&fin baseboard. There is no access to come up to the radiator from underneath like a normal installation, so I can't use your normal through-the-floor shut off valve. How about a bronze ball valve on the same plane as the side inlet of the baseboard? I've never seen a ball valve used for a radiator shut off so I'm wondering if there's a reason I shouldn't do it this way.
Are you asking for asme regulation or are you asking if it will fail in place, and what is the W O G on your ball/Apollo valve?
