System debris may consist of pipe scale, thread turnings, rust particles, thread sealing tape or jointing paste and airborne dust particles.
If left within the pipework, this debris may cause erosion to bends and fittings, causing damage to pumps and control valves. Modern systems contain many small control valves in which the seats could become damaged or blocked, these types of valve require a clean system to work efficiently.
Dirt separators are an efficient way of removing debris and are capable of removing small particles down to 5μm (microns) in size. Debris is collected in the large chamber allowing longer periods between cleaning, which can be done whilst the system is operating. Dirt separators if cleaned regularly have low pressure loss characteristics, important for reducing energy demands and ongoing running costs.
Excessive air within a system can cause excessive noise, reduce the accuracy of control valves and the performance of heating and cooling equipment, therefore removal is important.
Proud of our heritage - passionate about our future
The Water Regulations Advisory Scheme (WRAS) Approval demonstrates that a particular product is compliant with Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations or Scottish Byelaws.
With the proliferation of storing water at high water temperatures i.e. above 60°C or having a storage vessel capable of storing hot water at a temperature exceeding 80°C valves capable of reducing the water supply temperature to a more acceptable distribution temperature must be fitted adjacent to the hot water storage vessel.
