TF1 Compact Filter

Product Code: 62131 Category:
Warranty: 5 Years

A high-performance, magnetic in-line system filter, the TF1 Compact Filter is ideal for small and restricted spaces. This simple to install, composite plastic filter fits onto vertical and horizontal pipework in multiple orientations. Its design enables the capture of both magnetic and non -magnetic debris by using hydrocyclonic action and specifically engineered magnet assemblies to collect and contain debris within the filter before safe removal.

  • The TF1 Compact Filter is constructed from a high strength engineering polymer, suitable for heating and cooling system applications. The glass reinforced polymer has good hydrolysis resistance, as well as high resistance to strain and abrasion. The polymer is compatible with glycols and additives used in central heating systems.

    The TF1 Compact Filter has been designed to ensure there is minimal pressure head loss in addition to maintaining a high collection efficiency. The unique Hydrocyclone, magnet assembly, and area of low flow have all been engineered to allow the filter to capture a range of system contaminates, whilst not impacting the rest of the heating system.

    The TF1 Compact Filter utilises a range of high-quality component parts that ensure the filter offers optimum performance. All isolation valves are designed to allow users to operate them easily by hand, whilst also providing a secure connection to the system and a robust service point. The magnet is manufactured using a premium grade of neodymium, enabling a high-efficiency capture rate, as well as a robust filtration medium that will ensure a continued and consistent level of collection.

    The TF1 Compact Filter can be connected directly to the pipework using the valve fittings provided. The filter can be installed in any one of 24 separate orientations enabled by its unique inlet/outlet mechanism. The Fernox TF1 Compact Filter (UK patent granted No.2448232) is a revolutionary in-line filter, which combines Hydrocyclonic action with specially designed magnet assemblies, to remove both magnetic and non-magnetic contaminants from system water and contain safely within the filter before removal. The filter can be installed on vertical or horizontal pipework, in accordance with the flow direction indicated by the arrow on the manifold. The filter is designed to protect the boiler from the damaging effects of circulating corrosion debris, which has collected in the system as a result of a chemical reaction when water comes into contact with mixed metals used within a heating and cooling system. Ideally the filter should be fitted on the return to the boiler and can be installed at up to 45⁰ from the vertical position if space or head height is restricted.

    As with all magnetic products, if you have an implanted cardiac device extra caution should always be taken when handling any magnetic filter.

    Operating Principle
    Contaminated water enters the filter via the manifold, carrying a variety of system debris and particulate matter held in suspension. This debris, including ferrous impurities such as Magnetite, move through the manifold and into the main body of the filter.

    The TF1 Compact Filter utilises Hydrocyclonic filtration. A Hydrocyclone is a static device that applies centrifugal force to a liquid mixture to promote the separation of particles.

    The Hydrocyclonic action has been designed to convert incoming liquid velocity into rotary motion. As water enters the filter, it spins around and down the outside of the filter, carrying particles with it. The shape of the filter has been designed to create a low flow zone at the bottom where heavier particles are deposited.

    The Hydrocyclone in the TF1 Compact Filter has been optimised in order to allow for the maximum filtration ability of both magnetic and non-magnetic material.

    Once the flow of water has reached the bottom of the filter, water moves back up through the centre of the TF1 Compact Filter, carrying particles over the magnet sheath, promoting further magnetic filtration and enhancing the collection capabilities of the filter.

    Any dirt collected within the filter can then be discharged by removing the magnet from the sheath and opening the drain valve. This procedure is shown in the cleaning guide and does not require system shutdown, or for the filter to be disassembled.

    How to Install Fernox TF1 Compact

    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.
