Question

clearance between radiator pipe and PVC


is there a minimum (recommended/required) clearance between radiator galvanized steel pipe and PVC pipe (as to avoid melting PVC)?

Unless you are running steam, you are not going to melt PVC even if the PVC touches hot water piping. You will soften it however, and it may deform. I don't know if there is a code reference, but I would keep the PVC at least 6 inches away.
