The CLEARFLOW power flushing process is a versatile, easy to use and highly effective method of flushing heating systems. By utilising CLEARFLOW system flushing pumps, heating systems can be purged of sludge, scale and corrosion deposits with minimal dismantling and disruption.
HOW DOES Clearflow WORK?
The CLEARFLOW 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 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, 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.
What’s the difference between a descaling pump and a power flushing pump?
Can I use a descaling pump for power flushing?
Most smaller descaling pumps are not powerful enough to effectively flush a central heating system. They don’t have the vital flow rate or the pressure needed to maintain flow against the resistance of the heating system.
Power flushing pumps have not only been constructed to purge the system with fresh water whilst dumping the contaminated water, but are also supplied with flow and return hoses, dump and water inlet hoses, valves to isolate them from the system, adapters to speed connection into a system and a significantly higher performance rating.
They have a higher temperature rating, a starter pack of chemicals and a training package to ensure that you get the best from your investment.
