A Central Heating Magnetic Filter was cleaned today by our engineer Daniel who is confident that the installation of central heating magnetic filter is a worth while one.
The magnetic filter have been around for a few years now and are becoming increasingly popular with the industry and our customers. So we are recommending them wherever we go.
The importance of cleaning them is proven year after year as we notice our customers systems becoming much more efficient. We are seeing an increase in the life span of the boiler and an decrease in central heating systems noise and problems.
This larger system has three Ideal Classic boilers in synchronization and the filter, sited just below them was easy accessible and maintenance friendly. When cleaning a filter in a customers house, every care must be taken in removing and re-fitting the filter. Cleaning is also best taken place outside of the property where possible.
Sludge, Silt and debris in tour heating system can be the result from the corrosion of copper, zinc or aluminium components. This is nonferrous, and will not be caught by a magnet.
Ideally, if you have a new or modern central heating system, your central heating system should not contain any sludge anyway, because it should be dosed with corrosion inhibitor. This is easy to do, but some other heating engineers do not routinely install inhibitor or even check for its presence, preferring to sell magnetic filters to their customers instead.
MagnaClean® Professional has been developed by the company that pioneered magnetic filtration. ADEY’s filters protect more than three million heating systems in homes throughout Europe removing virtually 100% of the damaging suspended black oxide sludge that builds up in all heating systems.
