Designed for use with Fernox TF1 in-line system filters or other similar filters, this unique inhibitor package includes an active dispersant which is proven to aid the safe collection of corrosion, debris and scale via a filter. The Protector + Filter Fluid Express enhances the performance of a system filter whilst offering full protection against corrosion and scale formation. This innovative, proven formulation also extends system life and maintains optimum efficiency, while still being an environmentally friendly formulation. Concentration levels should be checked as part of the annual maintenance system service. The Fernox Express range uses Barrier Pressure Pack technology and compressed air propellent to expel the product so the entire range is non-flammable. The propellent (compressed air) is not mixed with the active product so there is no risk of air ingress into the system which could accelerate future risk of corrosion.
One single dose of this product treats and protects a larger sized property with a heating system of 130 litres, up to 16 radiators, or 250 sqm of underfloor heating. Fernox Protector+ Filter Fluid Express can be dispensed directly into a radiator air vent, system filling loop, or via a TF1 Filter using the appropriate adapter supplied with the product. Fernox Express takes less then 30 seconds to dose the system without the need to drain down the system, saving time on-site. If dosing via a TF1 Filter, the filter should be empytied of any collected contaminants prior to treating with Protector+ Filter Fluid. It takes less than 2 minutes to clean in situ. Simply Isolate the filter, remove the magnet from the sheath, open the drain valve and dispose of the contaminants before replacing the magnet and closing the drain valve. Fernox Protector+ Filter Fluid Express should remain in the system. It is not suitable for use in microbore systems. In single feed indirect cylinder, e.g. Primatic systems or similar, potable water chemicals must be used. For heavily sludged systems or new installations, Fernox recommends cleaning and flushing using Fernox Cleaner F3 or Power Cleaner F8 before treating with inhibitor. Protector+ Filter Fluid must be used in combination with an inline system filter. The installation of a system, or new boiler should comply with all local legislation and regulations.
Fernox Protector+ Filter Fluid Express is supplied in 400 ml pressurised cans.
Fernox Protector+ Filter Fluid Express is classified as non-hazardous for human health, but as with all chemicals keep out of reach of children. In case of contact with eyes or skin, rinse immediately with plenty of water.

Follow these steps to successfully dose your central heating system.
Make sure the system is turned off and allow radiators to cool down (1). Select a radiator and shut both the wheel-head and lock shield valves (2). If a thermostatic radiator valve (TRV) is fitted, close it by turning it to the minimum setting.
Having removed the air vent pin using a cloth to absorb any escaping water (3). Screw the Fernox Express injection nozzle into the air vent (after cutting to the right diameter to fit tightly (4)). Fit the tube to the adapter and screw onto the canister. Attach the other end of the tube onto the nozzle in the radiator (5).
Re-open the wheel-head valve (6) (or TRV) and inject all the content of the Fernox Express by squeezing the trigger for 30 seconds (7). After the product has been dispensed close the wheel-head valve (8) (or TRV), remove the injector nozzle and tighten the air vent pin (9). Open both radiator valves, turn on the central heating system (10) and let it run for 15 minutes to allow the Express to disperse around the system.
Fernox Express can also be for dosed via the system filling loop using the appropriate special adapter supplied with the Express product as well as via the bleed valve on a fitted Fernox TF1 Filter. The whole process takes less than two minutes.
