Heatlink is helping its customers with a new way to solve the problem of magnetite in water.
For many years, strainers have been used as the main defence against the problem of contaminated water in heating systems. Strainers do not stop the problem, however, and if there is magnetite in the system then a strainer might not help at all.
Magnetite is created by the action of oxygen on ferrous components, and the particles are often so small they can pass right through a basic strainer. This can lead to damage in pumps and other components, resulting in product failure.
After working with multiple customers who are suffering because of this issue, Heatlink is now offering the Magnom H2O.
The Magnom H2O is core magnetic technology designed for OEM manufacturers that supply central heating systems within the HVAC sector. It prevents magnetite from passing into control valves, pumps and heat exchangers and not only extends the life expectancy of key components but also enhances performance.
Phil Harrison, managing director of Heatlink, said: “It seemed obvious to me that if we could help eliminate a key problem with a simple fix, then we should definitely be offering it to customers.
“This low cost solution extends the working life expectancy on sensitive controls, valves, heat exchangers and pumps. It’s easy to install and maintain and is a small product that can provide huge benefits.”
The Magnom H2O is exclusively available from Heatlink. To find out more, click here.
There has been mixed reaction to the Government's long-awaited Heat and Buildings Strategy from heating industry bodies.
The Strategy has unveiled phased out dates for the installation of fossil fuel heating, increased funding support for households purchasing heat pumps, and the rebalancing of environmental levies on electricity.
