Owing to the very rapid movement and the consequent increased rate of transmission of heat, the pipes and radiators may be reduced in size, in many circumstances a very desirable thing to achieve.
Branches are taken off the flow pipe, and after circulating through coils or radiators are connected with the return pipe.
Ventilating radiators are similar, but have an inlet arrangement at the base to allow external air to pass over the heating surface before passing out through the perforations.
The city lies in an agricultural and grape-growing; region, and has a fine harbour and an extensive lake trade; the: manufactures include locomotives, radiators, lumber, springs, shirts, axes, wagons, steel, silk gloves and concrete blocks.
Gas and oil radiators would be more properly termed " convectors," since they warm mainly by convected currents.
