Power Flushing Process
Identifying the need for power flushing
Without being too technical as some other websites do we have tried to explain the basics of system corrosion and how power flushing Manchester can help rectify problems. Power flushing is a sure way of increasing the efficiency and performance of your central heating system, boiler and radiators. Some of the symptoms of poor circulation around the central heating system are cold spots in radiators this normally builds up from the bottom middle of a radiator. A noisy boiler can also be the early signs of system sludging and scaling. Failing components such as central heating pumps and motorised valves clogged up with sludge deposits. Leaks on radiators and pipe work caused by sludge deposits attacking the system. With the aid of a power flush poor performing radiators can be brought back to life and the system will operate much better
The power flushing machine is simply connected into the central heating installation, either across the circulating pump couplings or either side of one radiator. The powerful water flow, combined with a flow reversing device, will dislodge and move deposits and corrosion which resist normal central heating system cleaning methods.
Once the sludge deposits have been loosened and mobilised, fresh clean water will be pumped at force through the heating system, pushing the contaminated water out through a full bore dump valve to the nearest drain. During the flushing process, radiators are cleaned individually without removing or disconnecting them from the heating system, by directing the water flow of the pump through each radiator separately. Chemicals can be added to the flushing process depending upon the severity of the problem.
Upon completion of the flushing process, the system contains fresh clean water and commissioning of the system to normal operation takes place. A corrosion inhibitor will then be added to the system to help prevent further problems in the future.
Power flushing of the central heating system will not remedy design or mechanical faults, these however can be addressed at the same time with relevant remedial work and prevent the problem occurring again. Advanced Gas and Heating will carry out power flushing in Manchester and surrounding areas.

Magnetic Type Cleaning Filters
Upon completion of power flushing the central heating installation a cleaning filter can be installed to remove magnetic and non-magnetic deposits. Modern central heating systems with high efficiency boilers are clean, efficient and economical, but only if operating at peak performance. The natural process of black iron oxide build-up soon impairs performance and eventually clogs the boiler and radiators.
The majority of systems suffer from black iron oxide contamination often down to poor installation or system design. This creates thick sludge deposits that are the result of corrosion taking place within radiators and other metallic components. The oxide particles range from very large to sub-micron with the latter leeching into the system water continuously during use.
Installing a Magnetic type filter to a new or existing central heating system is simple. It comes with purpose designed valves, which allow 360º rotation. Some filters require isolating and removal of the magnetic core, others require just a simple flush through for a few seconds. This can be carried out by the customer or by the engineer at the annual boiler service.
