We replace steam and return lines here on a daily basis. We can split steam fittings and radiator valves, and notch out 80 year male threaded joints in our sleep. The problem is vertical apartment steam risers with no access to the next fitting. Sometimes you cant fit a 700 in there to thread on the line. MegaPress says their fittings are rated for low pressure steam. Cutting out a bad section anywhere with a sawzall and pressing in a new section sounds too easy. Would you trust press fittings on steam, or should I just use them on the returns?
