The Magnaclean is a central heating filtration system. It is a water treatment device that can be fitted anywhere on the heating system, but it is generally preferable to fit them close to the boiler on the return. Although there are various different brands of filter, the Magnaclean is probably one of the best known brands. The return on the hot water from the central heating comes back and flows into the Magnaclean and then flows back into the boiler.
How The Magnaclean Works
The idea behind the Magnaclean is brilliantly simple. As water flows through your heating system (pipes, radiators and your boiler etc, it picks up small amounts of swarf (small particles of metal and debris) The Magnaclean contains a magnet, as water flows back from the heating system, the Magnaclean, picks up the swarf, which sticks to the magnet and therefore does not continue to flow through your heating system, boiler and radiators, which can cause sludge that is corrosive. This also protects the heat exchanger in the boiler and this stops the water ways from furring up and becoming small, further impairing the performance of your boiler.
The Benefits Of Using A Magnaclean
This means that your hot water flows at a higher pressure, your house will heat up faster, you will use less gas (saving money!) and your heating system will run much more efficiently.
The Magnaclean offers added protection to your boiler against damage, helps it to last longer and to run more efficiently. This reduces the risk of central heating breakdowns, will give you substantial savings on central heating maintenance as well as extending the life of the heat exchanger and system pump.
It is recommended that you have your Magnaclean serviced annually – preferably at the same time as your boiler service. During a Magnaclean service, the heating engineer will clean the magnet inside using specialist equipment.
The Magnaclean is recommended if you are converting an open vented system into a sealed system as it gives added protection to the boiler.
