How much sludge will a TF1 Omega Filter collect?
The TF1 Omega Filter out performs other filters of its size by collecting significant quantities of system contaminants, and competes with many larger filters thanks to the cleverly designed internal mechanisms of the filter.
The HPS technology improves the overall collection of the filter, as well as the performance of the Neodymium magnet.
Does the filter block and restrict flow through the system?
No, the TF1 Omega Filter has been designed to ensure that even when it reaches a level of maximum collection, system water can still pass through the filter, short-circuiting the body, and flowing freely through the manifold.
Is the TF1 Omega Filter compatible with all chemical water treatment products?
The TF1 Omega Filter is not only compatible with all Fernox products, it is designed to act as a dosing point for any Fernox Express products.
In circumstances where demineralised or softened water is used a quality inhibitor must be present to prevent corrosion from taking place. The TF1 Omega Filter offers a convenient and fast way of introducing an inhibitor into the system with no mess or fuss.
What are the benefits of using the TF1 Omega Filter?
The TF1 Omega Filter collects all types of corrosion, scale and installation debris.
By preventing these contaminants from circulating within a heating system, energy efficiency levels are optimised and the inconvenience of a system breakdown coupled with a major repair or replacement cost can be avoided.
What is a TF1 Omega Filter?
The TF1 Omega Filter is a high performance, nickel plated, in-line system filter, which is designed for domestic heating systems.
It is produced with quality materials and components and has been manufactured using precision engineering. Combining the strength of a powerful Neodymium magnet with Hydronic Particle Separation technology, the TF1 Omega Filter offers a superior collection capacity for both magnetic and non-magnetic debris.
When should Filter Fluid+ Protector be used in a heating system?
Filter Fluid+ Protector should only be used in combination with an in-line system filter, which can trap and contain the debris in the system before safe removal.
It is ideal for use in circumstances where a system has previously been cleaned or flushed but subsequently has not been adequately protected so further corrosion has taken place. It is also suitable for systems with poor design or low flow rates which make conventional cleaning difficult. Filter Fluid+ Protector enables ongoing purging and collection of system debris. Treatment levels should be checked annually as part of a maintenance and service programme to ensure full protection.
When I dose with Boiler Noise Silencer F2, do I also need to use a Fernox Protector?
Yes, Fernox Boiler Noise Silencer F2 is designed for use with any Fernox Protector.
It should be left permanently in the system with Protector F1 or Filter Fluid+ Protector and replaced or topped up at the same time.
What is Filter Fluid+ Protector?
This is an innovative, universal inhibitor package which uses the proven inhibition qualities of Fernox Protector F1 with an active dispersant.
This unique formulation is designed to detect, lift and deliver magnetic and non- magnetic debris to an in- line system filter.
Can I use Fernox Protector F1 or Filter Fluid+ Protector in old systems?
Fernox Protectors are suitable for use on systems of all ages. However, it would be advantageous to clean and flush the system with Fernox Cleaner F3 to remove sludge before adding the Protector F1.
Alternatively, the universal Fernox Filter Fluid+ Protector can deliver sludge and debris to an existing in-line filter or a newly installed TF1 Filter, whilst protecting the system against further corrosion formation.
Does Fernox Cleaner F3 need to be flushed out of the system?
Fernox Cleaner F3 should ideally circulate around the system for at least one hour, or up to a week, after which it should be drained out and the system flushed/ cleaned before adding Fernox Protector F1 or Filter Fluid + Protector together with a Fernox TF1 Filter to protect the system from further corrosion and scale formation.
