About Fernox TF1
For a central heating system to continue to operate at a peak level of efficiency it needs to be properly maintained. The water contained in closed loop systems can become fouled by lime scale, iron oxide particles, flux residues and other contaminants. Over time these problems can only accumulate if left untreated and will affect your system in various ways. Radiators can acquire cold spots where iron oxide residue has built up. Boilers can become noisy as they gather accumulations of lime scale. Pumps can seize up. Systems can become sluggish, taking a long time to heat up. Even highly efficient boilers, such as those rated A or B on the SEDBUK band can have their effectiveness diminished without effective water treatment. The eventual outcome can be larger fuel bills caused by the decrease in efficiency or even costly repairs following a system breakdown. Draining water from a radiator will indicate the cleanliness or otherwise of your system.
Fernox was established in 1964 by German engineer Peter Muetzel as the world?s first chemical water treatment company. It is now a global leader in its field, with its own dedicated in-house research and development facilities. Their TF1 hydrocyclonic and magnetic in line filter can help to maintain heating efficiency in a system after cleaning. It has specially designed magnet assemblies for removing iron oxide contamination from a system and the hydrocyclonic action deals with other contaminants. Available in 22mm or 28mm pipe sizes, it can be installed either horizontally or vertically and flush to the wall on existing pipe work. It also provides a dosing point for topping up the system with other Fernox products. It can be quickly cleaned without removal, is easy to fit and clean and does not restrict water flow. Spare filters are also available.
