I have 13 various sized steam radiators. I live in Tri-State area. Iowa, Ill. & Wis.

11 of them are the taller radiators measuring about 39 inches tall, 4 have 3 steam columns, and the other 7 have 2. The sizes range from 3 fins to 12 fins. The other 2 are the shorter about 19 inches tall, one is 5 column and approx. 32 inches long. The other one is 6 column and approx. 60 inches long. The taller radiators are decortive except for one the shorter radiators are plain. Please let me know what size you are looking for. I have pictures to send.

i am curious, if you know of any way of cleaning inside of radiators , short of removing them and boiling them out!

I thought of draining system iin spring, back syphoning, with gallon of vinegar on hose attached to air valve?

Sorry, The only thing we did was drain our system every month during the heating season, and then again in spring. We never did anything else.
