I have a "single pipe" steam heat system in my 1930s home. I had a radiator sandblasted and it seems some kind of emergancy releif cap (emergancy might be pressure buildup), on the top side far from supply side, got blown off.

It was sandblased due to the excessive paint buildup and it was chipping and scaling. It was in a bathroom where families have taken showers since the place was built.

Can someone tell me where to get steam radiator parts? There has to be somewhere? Its just that in my climate, it doesn't get very cold, so theres much less steam and water based heating installed.

Thanks.

Can I email to you some digital pictures and you could help nail down an exact identification. When I've called boiler/steam firms, I don't know enough of what I'm talking about to communicate with them effectively.
