    How does this rad work? Only one inlet! The silvery thing is an automatic air valve allowing it to half fill up!

    I think I see a horizontal pipe and a nut on the bottom left hand side - but the air valve is obviously wrong.

    Twelve rads all the same in the house, I reckon that they must have somehow worked.

    Yes, do you know how they work?
  1.  
    One Pipe System

    In the one pipe radiator system, a single pipe runs from the furnace to each radiator. Steam is driven through that pipe, fills the radiators, and then condenses and runs back down that same pipe in the form of water. The water is recycled and used again in the next cycle.

    I refine my earlier statement ...

    I don't see a horizontal pipe and the air valve is clearly correct -

    you learn something every day - top marks to dpmiller and PeterStarck.

    Sounds very safe - or not - in terms of pressures and temperatures of the pipes and radiators !!
