I want to put radiator in loft conversion cold water tank as high as poss F and e tank below radiator top above level of tank no room to move f and e up any higher due to water tkn above. Can i take f and e tank out and put a expassion vessal in to circuit have a baxi back boiler with pump. Hot water heated by gravity on a vented hot water cylinder indirect.no 2 or 3 way valves in system.would this allow me to fit the rediator and a towel radiator in shower room. have electric heaters at moment.or is there an esier way to do this.

"Can i take f and e tank out and put a expansion vessel in?" Maybe, but most probably not. You would need to consult an engineer.

You don't give any heights of your existing system? I have fixed rads working before that are near the height of the header tank, but it depends on how your system is designed.

sorry about that there are radiators in the bed rooms below about 2.5m below f and e tkn loft rad in let and out is about 50mm above f and e tank out let the top of the rad is about 150mm above tank water level.
