All central heating systems can suffer from a build up of debris and sludge. This build up is also known as Magnetite, and is caused by the dissolved metal and rust that becomes held in the water. If left untreated it can cause poor performance and can even lead to failure of the central heating system over time.
MagnaClean is a unique and highly effective cleaning system that can help rid your system of magnetiteand other nasty debris.
What Is MagnaClean?
A MagnaClean filter can be fitted to your central heating system to prevent the build up of rust and sludge. Once the filterhas been fitted, it picks up small amounts of swarf – tiny particles of metal and debris – that can potentially block your central heating system and cause cool spots and heating failure if left untreated.
The MagnaClean contains a magnet, and as the water flows through the heating system, the swarf sticks to the magnet, preventing it from flowing into your heating system, boiler and radiators.
The MagnaClean also helps to protect the heat exchanger in the boiler and can prevent the pipework from furring up, causing further lack of performance.
What Are The Benefits Of MagnaClean?
Keeping your central heating free from rust has many long term advantages and will allow your boiler to heat your house more efficiently for much longer.
The main benefit is an improvement in system efficiency. A build up in sludge creates cold spots that in turn reduces the heating output of each of your radiators. It also helps to:
Clean up your central heating system
By continually collecting swarf from the water system, the MagnaClean keeps the pipework clean and free from magnetite and debris. This protects against any potential damage that could be caused by rust and blockages. Because of its uniquedesign, the cleaner remains concentrated in the system throughout the cleaning process.
It removes a built up of rust
Because the MagnaClean is a permanently installed fixture, it continues to catch and remove deposits of iron oxide sludge, rust and other magnetic debris from the radiators and pipe work, in order to rid the system of any circulationissues. Removing these deposits helps to remove the problems caused by dirty water and corrosion deposit.
It makes radiators easier to heat, increasing efficiency
A clean central heating system is a more effective one. Clear pipework allows the water to rush to every corner of the system, meaning that your radiatorscan heat up quickly and reach the right temperature in no time at all. Radiators that get warm quickly will heat your house far more efficiently that ones that suffer from cold spots or require constant adjustment via the thermostat.
The system will suffer from fewer breakdowns
A clean central heating system will be less likely to break down on you. Most central heating system breakdowns are caused by a build up of sludge or rust in the system that can lead to blockages, corrosion and even complete failures. Keeping your water running clean will ensure that your central heating systems remains fully functional for longer.
It will improve your carbon footprint
If you are looking to reduce your carbon footprint, the MagnaClean system can reduce carbon emissions by as much as 200-300kg per year/household.
Fit Your MagnaClean Filter Today
Here at DHS-UK we recommend MagnaClean filters be fitted to all of the central heating systems we work with. The removal of magnetite from old systems will increase productivity, while fitting them in brand new heating systems will prevent the buildup from occurring in the first place.
