Fernox has launched the new TF1 Sigma Filter Installer’s Pack, which comprises the ground-breaking, TF1 Sigma Filter with slip socket connection and the enhanced reformulated Cleaner F3 and Protector F1 500ml product. This 3-in-1 handy pack ensures installers have everything they need to clean and protect a domestic heating system.
Unlike other plastic filters on the market, the Fernox TF1 Sigma Filter has been precision engineered from a composite polymer for improved strength and reliability compared to conventional, lidded filters. A robust domestic filter, the TF1 Sigma Filter combines Hydronic Particle Separation (HPS) technology with a powerful magnet to ensure both magnetic and non-magnetic debris is captured and prevented from depositing within the boiler to cause premature breakdown or failure. The filter also benefits from a sealed, lidless design. Having no lid reduces ongoing servicing and labour costs as there is no ‘O’ ring to replace each year. A compressed ‘O’ ring, which needs changing, may compromise the watertight reliability of a lidded filter whereas the integrity of sealed filter design eliminates that risk. Not only that but the TF1 Sigma Filter saves time on-site during cleaning and maintenance of the system.
Also included in the pack is the Fernox Cleaner F3. This is a high performance, non-foaming chemical cleaner that has been reformulated to clean larger volume systems up to 130 litres, 16 radiators or 250sqm of underfloor so for 97% of all UK housing stock only one bottle is required to clean the system; saving the homeowner additional expense. The product starts to work after only one hour and can be left circulating in the system for up to seven days prior to flushing, which is especially useful for heavily contaminated systems. Time spent on-site for a thorough clean is much less due to the improved formulation. Effective against dirt and sludge, this universal cleaner removes debris that would otherwise block pipes or become trapped within the boiler, damaging vital components.
Once clean, the system is ready for dosing with the industry leading Protector F1. This reformulated chemical inhibitor offers even greater pH buffering and combines three different types of active inhibitors to form a protective barrier between the system metals and water – preventing electrolytic corrosion from taking place and stopping the build-up of sludge and limescale long-term.
The new Fernox TF1 Sigma Filter Installer’s Pack is available from all leading merchants.
