What is Power Flushing?
Power flushing is the most efficient method of cleansin 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 power flushing 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. When used in conjunction with a Fernox cleanser a typical power flush can be completed in 3-4 hours.
Without treatment, corrosion debris will accumulate in the boiler causing increased limescale deposits, reduced heat transfer and up to a third of a fuel bill going to complete waste.
This increases in frequency and intensity as deposits of sludge and scale build up in an unprotected boiler.
The familiar cool low central area of a radiator indicates a build-up of black sludge sediment that restricts flow and reduces heat.
When the top of a radiator is cold during operation, either air or hydrogen is to blame. Hydrogen gas builds up as a by-product of electrolytic corrosion and is flammable (due caution is required)
Pump Seizure and failure
The abrasive and magnetic properties of black oxide sludge increase shaft and bearing wear in pumps causing them to stick or fail.
The cleaning and treating of central heating systems
All new systems should be pre-commission cleansed in accordance with BS:7593 and Benchmark. This ensures flux residues, excess jointing compounds, mineral oil and other contaminants that can be found in the system following installation, and that can effect the performance of the system or cause component failure, are removed. It is important when installing new boilers into old systems that all sludge is first removed from the system or this could accumulate in the new boiler and lead to premature failure. Additionally, in hard water areas existing systems will have accumulated limescale together with corrosion deposits in the heat exchanger, which could easily have reduced the boiler efficiency by over 5%.
