MagnaClean Boiler Filters

What is a MagnaClean ?

Adey have been developing filters for decades and MagnaClean is a brand owned by Adey. MagnaClean is a central heating system filter that keeps your central heating free of magnetite within the system and prolong the life of your central heating system. Magnetite, also known as sludge, is the result of a chemical reaction in the system. The central heating system generates sludge annually, decreasing its efficiency, resulting in higher energy bills. Sludge creates cold spots in radiators which results in the radiators producing less heat.

How does Magnaclean work?

The MagnaClean filter is installed permanently near the boiler to catch the sludge as it passes through the central heating system. Magnaclean can be fitted any time on your current system so you don’t need to wait for your boiler replacement to have one fitted.

Once the MagnaClean filter is installed, it will start protecting your central heating system by catching rust particles that passes through. This filter also protects your boiler and thus reducing the number of breakdowns. This filter should be cleaned at least once a year. Cleaning the MagnaClean filter is simple and only involves a spanner and couple of small valves. However, if you do not feel comfortable cleaning it yourself, you can wait for your boiler service where an engineer can clean the filter and perform a boiler service at the same time.

Benefits of a MagnaClean filter

Installing any filter onto your central heating will protect your boiler and MagnaClean being the best, can help in the following ways:

  • Protects central heating system.
  • Increased life of your central heating system.
  • Keep central heating system sludge free meaning reduced energy bills.
  • Environmentally friendly by reducing the carbon emission produced by your central heating system.
