Customer case study with a Boiler-M8 filter

A customer wanted a new pressurised system as the water flow was terrible in his shower. The old boiler was replaced with an ATAG boiler. With a new boiler in place, a Boiler-M8 Ultimate was also fitted, so that the new boiler would be protected from being clogged up with debris caused by corrosion.

How The Filter Works

Debris in the heating system begins to build up as components, such as pipes, corrode throughout their lifetime. Corrosion can be reduced by annually dousing your system with an inhibitor. The loose debris then circulates and begins to build up, clogging areas and creating ‘cold spots’ in radiators. However, the Boiler-M8 Ultimate magnetic filter prevents this by catching the debris inside of its brass body. As the debris goes through the filter, the magnet picks up all the debris, which can then be easily emptied. This way debris can be easily removed before it causes any harm to the system. Boiler-M8 filters should be installed on the inlet as close to your boiler as possible so that it will catch all the debris circulating in the system before it reaches your boiler.

How To Empty The Filter

Emptying the debris from the magnetic filter is simple. Firstly, you close both valves on either side of the filter, this isolates the magnet from the water allowing you to remove the magnet. Rotate the filter so that the cap is pointing upwards. You can then easily unscrew? the bottom of the filter and remove the magnet. Then rinse it and put it back in.

If you’re dousing the system, then you will need to empty the filter. You can then easily remove the filter. For easy cleaning, all you have to do is take off the plastic sheath from the magnet and debris will all come off. After that, put the filter back together. Once the magnet is back inside and screwed tightly back on, you can proceed to open up the valves again. Once everything is tightened up again, be sure to use the air vent to remove any air from the body of the filter
