The power flushing process is a versatile, easy to use and highly effective method of flushing heating systems. By utilising the flushing pump, it enables heating systems to be purged of sludge, scale and corrosion deposits with minimal dismantling and disruption.
How does it work?
The power flushing pump is simply connected into the 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, 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 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, the system contains fresh clean water and reinstatement of the system to normal operation takes only a few minutes.
System flushing will not remedy design or mechanical faults, which should be rectified, but in many cases it will cure the problems caused by these.
Employ a Trained Engineer to Perform Your Power Flush
It is advisable to employ a trained engineer to carry out your power flush because an untrained person can easily ruin your central heating system by, for instance, using an incorrect solution to clean a boiler containing an aluminium heat exchanger.
