Powerflushing is the most cost-effective and powerful method of removing harmful debris from your heating system.
The photograph on the right shows just how much debris can form on the inside of your heating pipework. Powerflushing removes all of this harmful build-up.
What is Powerflushing?
The Most EFFICIENT and EFFECTIVE method of cleaning a Central Heating System.
The principle is to create a powerful fresh water flow under controlled conditions to remove debris from the system. By connecting the Powerflushing unit to the heating circuit in place of the system Pump, Boiler or Radiator, the circuit can be thoroughly cleansed of Limescale and Corrosion debris.
The causes of corrosion are clear, as soon as water enters a heating system, the process of Corrosion begins. This is because different types of metals (usually Copper, Steel and Brass) are exposed and react chemically in water which acts as an Electrolyte. Oxygen entering the water supply also begins the Corrosion process, as do impurities in Radiators and Pipes such as Flux residues and Copper swarf.
The consequences of corrosion
Sludge and Scale are the two Chief culprits, Black oxide sludge develops in ALL unprotected systems. Once corrosion starts it forms dense sediment deposits in all quiet areas of a Central Heating System and causes the majority of problems in Boilers, Pipes and Radiators. Scale on the other hand is formed by hardened deposits of Lime, that are attracted to the Hottest surface in the system, Radiators Pipes and Boilers.
POWERFLUSHING is also an Highly Effective option that reverse flushes debris from the system. For existing system cleaning, particularly when a replacement Boiler is installed, Sludge and Scale must be removed prior to commissioning.
