Today’s high-efficiency hydronic heating systems rely on optimal water quality to maintain peak performance. Iron oxide sludge, also called magnetite, can destroy water quality and, in turn, affect total system health. This black sludge is an unavoidable result of oxidation inside untreated hydronic systems, and it can cause loss of system efficiency and expensive damage. According to Dr. Neil Watson, ADEY® Global Technical Director, “Nearly 70 percent of circulator pumps returned to pump manufacturers fail due to iron oxide and other water quality issues. Data also show that over 95 percent of debris in hydronic heating systems is made up of iron oxide.”
ADEY, a U.K.-based company launched in 2003, is introducing MagnaClean Micro2™ to the North American market to protect total system health. It features a unique, patented magnetic filtration system that, within minutes of installation, begins to capture and remove virtually all of the suspended iron oxide that collects in hydronic heating systems, restoring optimal water quality. MagnaClean Micro2 is specifically designed for smaller installations, making it ideal for tight spaces.
Designed for ¾-inch copper and ¾-inch NPT iron pipework, the MagnaClean Micro2 is suited for baseboard and smaller residential installations. The compact unit is easily fitted on the return pipe to the boiler/circulator via rapid-fit connectors. It can be installed in minutes and serviced even faster, due to the unit’s quick-release trigger, low-profile drain valve, and built-in air vent.
