Power Flushing, Jet Flushing & Hard Flushing...
...are all expressions used (in the heating trade over many years) to denote the process by which heating systems are forcibly cleansed using water at high velocity, but low pressure, so that no physical damage is caused to the system.
The objective is to restore systems with circulation and boiler noise problems (caused by sludge and corrosion deposits) to optimum operation. Power flushing removes these deposits and the problems that they cause.
At Ian Redfern as services we use the Kamco CLEARFLOW power flushing process, which is a versatile, easy to use and highly effective method of flushing heating systems. By using this radiator power flushing system, heating systems can be purged of sludge, scale and corrosion deposits with minimal dismantling and disruption.
How does it work?
Ian Redfern gas services will connect the pumping equipment to your heating system, either across standard circulator pump couplings, across the tails of one radiator, or wherever most practicable. The powerful flow, combined with instantaneous flow reverser device, and powerful magnetic filter will dislodge and mobilise deposits and corrosion which resist traditional system cleaning methods.
Once the corrosion and sludge deposits have been loosened and mobilised, fresh clean water is forced through the heating system, pushing the contaminated water out through a full bore dump valve to waste. During the CLEARFLOW process, radiators are individually flushed, without removing or disconnecting them from the system, by directing the full output of the pump through each radiator separately.
At the end of the flushing process, Ian Redfern Gas services will ensure that your central heating system contains fresh clean water and reinstate your system to normal operation.
