Flushing is also an excellent way to pre-commission clean new heating systems, to remove excess flux, swarf and other debris, and the grease and oil used to prevent rusting of components before use.
It is prudent to power flush a heating system immediately before fitting a new boiler to an existing system to prevent possible future problems. Many systems are found to contain corrosion and sludge, even if no flow problems have yet shown themselves.
Existing debris is often mobilised by alterations to the system/piping and the increased efficiency of the new boiler, and may then accumulate in the boiler heat exchanger, causing noisy operation, reduced efficiency and, in extreme circumstances, failure of the boiler. The high efficiency and compactness of modern boilers, developed to minimise fuel costs and pollution, means that they are more susceptible to problems caused by debris in the system water.
The flushing process is a versatile, easy to use and highly effective method of flushing heating systems. Heating systems can be purged of sludge, scale and corrosion deposits with minimal dismantling and disruption.
How does it work?
|Immediate ongoing system protection|
|Reduced heating bills – up to 6% a year|
|Reduced carbon emissions|
|Reduced maintenance costs|
|Extended system lifetime|
|No ongoing running costs|
The VibraClean precision-made radiator agitator liberates sludge hardened deposits and blockages effectively.
Designed especially for the professional central heating market, used in conjunction with MagnaCleanse RapidFlush Filter, VibraClean brings immediate benefits:
Our experience has shown that using VibraClean in conjunction with the MagnaCleanse process not only speeds up the process, it contributes significantly to a higher quality system flush. It is possible to remove more sludge in 20 seconds than 30 minutes of traditional power-flushing.
