Heating Repair leads to Magnetic Filter and no Despair!

Heating Repair leads to Magnetic Filter and no Despair!

Last week we saw one particular Heating Repair take on a twist before we fitted a  Magnetic Filter. This changed our customer’s situation around. In Crowborough, East Sussex near Tunbridge Wells in Kent a customer called us in despair. Worcester Filter        Fernox Filter                       Magnaclean.

By the time our heating engineer had finished the work, the relief for the homeowner was so great that a free hamper presented to him with homemade mince pies!

The heating system had never been flushed, and so the whole radiator circuit was full of silt and sludge, the magnetite that collects over many years of use without care.

We were able to drain the system, cut out the blocked cold feed and then power flush. Once done we fitted a Magnetic Filter for ongoing maintenance, system care and protection.

What is a magnetic filter?

A magnetic filter is a device that helps collect the sludge that can build up in a central heating system.

Worcester Filter before and after

Much of the sludge is made up of rust particles that have corroded and come away from inside pipes or radiators. A magnetic filter is made up of a giant magnet that attracts these particles and then filters them out of the system. This helps prevent blockages and keeps the water flowing through the central heating system.

Why would my heating system need a magnetic filter?

The iron and steel components in central heating systems are vulnerable to corrosion and rusting. This produces a sludge which can block different parts of the system, principally the boiler heat exchanger, pump or the radiators.

Old, cast iron pipes were usually a few centimetres in diameter but more new pipework tends to be narrower, making blockages even more likely.
