As we work out our first few installs of the the ADEY MagnaCleanse I wanted to share a few quick videos ProStaff’er Andy Mickelson has posted on his Instagram account. Andy has a older radiant system he’s been working on in Montana that has thousands of feet of Onyx tubing and some major corrosion with a terrible buildup of iron oxide within the heating solution.
The ADEY products; the MagnaClean magnetic filter, MagnaCleanse magnetic filter flush station and chemicals all work together to filter an entire hydronic system of efficiency-robbing elements. The magnetic sludge, as you’ll see in the short 60 second video posts can cause failure of system components such as circulators, valves, air eliminators and flow controls; depending on the type of heat-exchanger used at the heat source the debris can even cause total failure from restricted flow and over-heating. Please watch for future posts here on The Hub and our social media pages as I will be installing and using the ADEY products on some of my installs as well.
Today we installed and reviewed the @adey_na #magnaclean Filter and #magnacleanse rapid flush kit. This is the heating system we posted a video of a nasty water sample from a few months back. @mechanicalhub and I meet the good folks at @adey_pro at the #ahr2018 in Chicago and learned about this system. Swipe right to see how it works. We'll post some more videos tomorrow when we check back in.
So to keep this system clean up moving along, I found that I had to relocate the @adey_na #magnacleanse rapid filter to the secondary side of our radiant system. By nature of design the variable speed injection circuit transfers a very small amount of water to and from the primary loop, so after a couple of days of filtering this system, I still had a large amount of devris in the secondary loop. So we picked up some cam lock fittings, that allowed me to connect the included hose to a boiler drain. #prostaff #magnaclean #magneticfilter #boilerman #boiler #hydronic @mechanicalhub
