As contractors become all too familiar with the damaging effects of iron oxide sludge on today’s high-efficiency commercial hydronic heating and cooling installations, the need for a solution has been growing. ADEY® Professional Heating Solutions is answering that need with the introduction of the MagnaClean Commercial™ Magnetic Filter range to the North American market.
MagnaClean Commercial’s unique, patented magnetic filtration system starts to work immediately upon installation, removing virtually all of the suspended iron oxide that collects in hydronic heating systems. “The removal of iron oxide is facilitated simply by the flow of water through a central magnetic core, which is populated by a series of magnetic rods inside the canister,” says Dr. Neil Watson, ADEY Global Technical Director.
By removing sludge from the system, MagnaClean Commercial restores peak performance and decreases maintenance costs over the life of the system. It also offers a solution for the most common complaints in commercial hydronic systems, including poor system circulation, blocked system pipes and radiators, and excessive system noise.
ASME-listed MagnaClean Commercial filters will be rolled out as a full line of commercial products, with five inlet and outlet flange size options including 2”, 3”, 4”, 6” and 8”. All MagnaClean Commercial units are designed for use in light-commercial to heavy-industrial applications, and feature cast stainless steel canister bodies containing multiple magnetic rods. Each rod has its own handle to facilitate easy, one-at-a-time removal and cleaning when the rods become saturated with iron oxide sludge. Multiple installation options allow for flexibility within any commercial application.
