Power Flushing in Cambridge

Power flushing in Cambridge is a termĀ used (in the heating industry over many years) to denote the procedure through 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 method can be made even more effective by using powerful cleansing and mobilising agents like FX2 and HYPER-FLUSH, from Kamco.

The goal is to restore systems with circulation and boiler noise problems (attributed to sludge and corrosion debris) to the best possible operation. Power flushing in Cambridge gets rid of these deposits as well as the conditions that they lead to.



How Does Power Flushing Work?

Because the water in your central heating system is constantly pumped the same direction, oil, grease, iron filings and sludge build up within each radiator. This has a negative effect on the efficiency on your radiators and your boiler. In reality it will lower the entire central heating systems life expectancy.

When your system is professionally power flushed it’s flushed in lots of directions, moving the sludge and debris, so the system can be drained of all deposits. When flushing a system chemicals are used to ensure the breakdown of all of the sludge, ahead of the deposits being extracted.

Power flushing your Heating system can also expand the lifespan of your boiler and under Part L of the building regulations your heating system must be power flushed when an old central heating boiler is being replaced by a new boiler.

System Pre Clean prior To Installation

Power flushing in Cambridge, together with SYSTEM PRE-CLEAN, is likewise a very good way to pre-commission clean new heating systems, to clear out surplus flux, swarf and other debris, and the grease and oil used to stop rusting of parts prior to use.

It is prudent to power flush a heating system immediately before installing a new boiler to an existing system to prevent possible future problems. Many systems are found to contain corrosion and sludge, even if no flow problems have yet shown themselves.

Existing debris is often mobilised by alterations to the system/piping and the elevated efficiency of the new boiler, and could then build up in the boiler heat exchanger, triggering noisy operation, diminished efficiency and, in serious circumstances, failure of the boiler. The high efficiency and compactness of modern boilers, developed to significantly lower fuel costs and pollution, means that they’re more prone to problems caused by particles in the system water.
