Magnetic System Filter

If you’re looking to change your gas boiler, it’s important to familiarise yourself with magnetic filters. These essential features are designed to keep your boilers and heating system running smoothly by removing harmful metallic particles and sludge that circulate the heating system. The filter captures these articles preventing them from entering the boiler. Sludge builds up over time, reducing efficiency and causing costly repairs and even system failure. By using strong magnets to attract and remove sludge from your system, magnetic filters can extend the working life of your boiler, pipes and radiators whilst maintaining overall performance. Whether you’re a homeowner, or business owner, knowing what you need and where to find it is important. Consider researching MagnaClean LLC on Google for more information on how to install and maintain one.

Over time, the water in your central heating system reacts with the inside of your steel radiators. The resulting dark/black/reddish dissolved rust (iron oxide) consists of a ‘gummy’ consistency, causing a reduction in water circulation that diminishes the efficiency and performance of your central heating. It’s vital to control/capture suspended debris to prevent harm to the circulation pump or other moving parts, such as the two/three-way motorised valves.

It is designed to ‘grab’ any magnetic debris, such as corroded iron and steel suspended within the system, preventing them from permeating the boiler!
They are quick to install and can be easily serviced during your annual boiler service.

Our standard offering includes supplying and installing a MagnaClean Professional 22mm Magnetic System Filter. However, if you have a preferred system filter in mind, like a Vaillant, Worcester Bosh etc., we are happy to accommodate your request.

  • Determine a suitable location for magnetic system filter installation, usually on the return pipe, just before the boiler.
  • Drain the system to prepare for installation.
  • Cut into the pipework to install the necessary valves and filter.
  • Refill the system and proceed with commissioning.

Serviceteam plumbing and heating engineers regularly install system filters, so rest assured you’re in safe hands.

How it works

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can I add a new magnetic filter to my existing system?

It can be, but it depends on the location of your boiler, as some free space is needed. Generally, a new magnetic filter can be easily installed on an existing central heating unit.

Our engineer will conduct an on-site inspection to assess the compatibility and provide a quotation for the installation.

Q: When should a Magnetic System Filter be serviced?

As the filter continuously collects dirt and debris, you need to clean it periodically to ensure optimal performance. The cleaning process can easily be included in your annual boiler service (subject to conditions). It’s important to keep the filter clean for your system’s protection.
