New Features of MagnaClean® Commercial™ Bring Added Convenience to the Fight Against Iron Oxide Sludge in Commercial Hydronic Systems
ADEY® Improves Magnetic Dirt Filter for Light Commercial to Heavy Industrial Applications
PITTSBURGH, PA (FEBRUARY 09, 2018) – 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 (see box below), the need for a solution has been growing. ADEY® Professional Heating Solutions answered that need with the introduction of the MagnaClean® Commercial™ Magnetic Dirt Filter range to the North American market last year, and recently unveiled improvements.
How MagnaClean Commercial Works
Several pounds of sludge can collect on the magnets, making it difficult to pull all the rods out collectively when fitted through a mounting plate. This year, the ADEY magnet array has been redesigned to allow the rods to be lifted individually; this redesign makes it much easier for the servicing contractor to lift the magnets, particularly in tight spaces. This easy release sequence allows the magnetite from each rod to fall into the base of the filter body so it can be flushed out via the 1¼” NPT drain at the base of the filter. The valve on the flow side can be opened and the debris flushed out through the drain. This product advancement not only makes servicing safer, it also further simplifies the flushing and cleaning routine.
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.
MagnaClean Commercial filters are available in 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. Multiple installation options allow for flexibility within any commercial application.
MagnaClean Commercial Technology Comes Out Ahead of Other Filtering Methods
In addition, a 2” MagnaClean Commercial collected over three pounds of iron oxide during a two-hour cycle at a standard flow rate. By comparison, a 2” basket filter collected less than one ounce. A comparable dirt separator collected just over a half ounce of iron oxide under the same flow conditions. Pressure drop is also significantly lower across a MagnaClean Commercial filter than with the other methods of filtration — 54% less than a dirt separator and 68% less than a basket filter.*
*All data based on studies of European systems, using the European version of MagnaClean Commercial product.
