Hi Bob,

I'm sorry, I thought since I had shown the whole build in this thread, that that was a given. Again, sorry!

Here's a shot from when it was still work in progress:



That's where it is located. Basement (indoor), dry & warm.

And just for reference, this shot from when it was finished.




Kind regards,
Oliver

Kind regards,

Oh, yes, you did post those shots. I didn't realize this was in the same space you've been working on. My mistake.

So the radiator is a two pipe hot water system not steam, but did the radiator ever have an automatic air vent on it in the past? I don't see one now which is why I ask.

If yes maybe the source of the high humidity in the area, and especially being directly under the panel.

In EU-heating systems automatic air vents are rare (at least they are in the Low Countries). And mostly installed on the (combi)boiler. Venting is done thru the device you can see on the upper left corner of the radiator, by hand, with a special key (that is always missing when you need it).
Cheers, Bert Vanderveen

Hi!

The original radiator had no automatic bleeder valve, it worked just as Bert described. All of the new radiators I put in got an automatic bleeder valve: hygroscopic bleeder valve -> https://www.amazon.co.uk/Caleffi-Hygroscopic-Radiator-Bleeder-Automatic/dp/B01M8IGKO3


But these only let a minimal amount air out - if present - and close within a fraction of a second if there is the slightest bit of moisture in the air.

But I can place a humidity logger there and see what it says over a couple of days maybe weeks. :) Actually that's a good idea!

Kind regards,
Oliver

Third time's the charm, or so they say. I didn't succeed the first two times at leaving "the internet", this time it has to be final.



For me it's the end of an era, on March 1st, I didn't renew my - first ever - bought domain. I was so young when I bought it back then, my parents actually had to sign the contract for it. Yesterday I cancelled the whole contract, which means that also all of my other Domains will have vanished in a couple of weeks. No more step by step farewell, but a clean cut once and for all. I made up my mind over this an hour ago, while enjoying a nice cigar in my garden.

With this in mind:




Bye!

Kind regards,
Oliver
