Adey MagnaClean Professional 22mm Filter
Features and Benefits:
Why have MagnaClean?
We live in an age of high efficiency boilers, but for many years little attention has been placed on the cleanliness of central heating systems.
The majority of systems suffer from black iron oxide contamination, which creates thick sludge deposits that are the result of corrosion taking place within radiators and other metallic components. The oxide particles can range from very large to sub-micron, with the latter leaching into the system water continuously during use. These particles bond to all components, often causing premature failure of pumps and valves. When they contaminate the boiler heat exchanger and pipework, dramatic efficiency losses result. Tests have shown that even a minimal build up results in a serious drop in boiler efficiency!
The Magnaclean filter will provide many years of protection, maintaining the high efficiency of your heating system, resulting in financial benefit and increased reliability, and is backed by a two year limited guarantee.
How it Works
MagnaClean Professional has been carefully designed to remove particulate from suspension, whilst allowing 100% flow rate at all times.
Installation is simple, with each isolation valve rotating through 360°C, supporting any number of location options. These valves have been specially designed for use with Magnaclean and have high quality P.T.F.E seals.
An added advantage to installers is the ‘Pro-Fill’ air vent built in to the lid. This special vent incorporates a unique one-way valve, allowing the installer to inject corrosion inhibitor chemicals directly into the Magnaclean without the need to isolate anything. Just remove the air vent screw, inject the chemical and replace the air vent screw. Simple!
Magnaclean® is a powerful, compact magnetic filter with a unique swirl chamber designed to remove 100% of suspended Iron Oxide and other particulate from the water circulating through the heating system. Unlike typical Y-strainer filters which clog up and experience a dramatic reduction in flow performance, Magnaclean® maintains full flow rates at all times, and is so powerful it will retain at least 50X the amount of debris on its easily removed sheath. The incredibly tough ‘Glass fibre reinforced Nylon’ shell is almost unbreakable.
Incorporated into the lid is a special air vent, which allows installers to quickly and easily add corrosion inhibiting chemicals without the need to isolate the filter. Simply unscrew the vent nipple (one-way valve shuts off), connect the chemical adaptor (supplied with all concentrates) and introduce the liquid directly into the heart of Magnaclean, where it will quickly disperse into the circulating water. Replace the vent. Job done!
Initially available to suit 22mm pipe work. A twin 300mm high unit built onto a special plinth is available, that has been specifically designed for installers who Power-Flush systems, to prevent contaminants released during the flushing process from entering the heating boiler.

Pros: Easy to fit with full instructions for installation and maintenance
Cons: None so far
Must cheaper to buy and fit rather than the British Gas quotation for the same product!
Pros: Easy to fit and well built, powerful magnet
Fitted well, all parts included were a dream to use. Well reputated and easy to use bit of kit!
Pros: nothing to report at present
Cons: the use of endfill copper fittings !!!!!!
What a nightmare! whilst the product may be good, why o why can't the makers supply the two copper fittings as yorkshire fittings instead of endfil.
Mine failed and leaked which meant I had to cut them out, buy more standard fittings and adjust all the pipework.
Clearly designed with plumbers in mind who are proficient at using endfill joints - a false economy in my view.
I haven't checked out how much gunge the filter has captured at this stage therefore don't know whether it is as efficient as promised.
Pros: Easy to fit - well packaged
The Magna filter was competitively priced and arrived within a couple of days. It was easily fitted and I would definitely recommend plumb world to a friend
Pros: easy to fit in accessible position next to boiler
fitted magnaclean after replacing 2 heating pumps due to contamination. seems easy to fit and service.hope it does its job.
Pros: Does the job well.
Cons: Fiddly to install., Thread made of Plasticine;
If it weren't for the thread on the thing being made, seemingly, of warm butter, this would be a great product. Needed to get a new one after the person servicing the boiler threaded the previous one and I almost did the same to this one. I'm sure it would be a lot easier if you are fitting it in an easily accessible space, otherwise, prepare for some frustration.
Up to date it dose what it says on the tin.it has been in operation for 3 weeks , been dissmantled twice both occasions sludge build up found on magnet.
Pros: Keeps muck out of your boiler
Cons: Plastic joints onto metal fittings
Very good item if you want to prolong your boiler life you should always fit a magna clean as it prevents muck entering the heat exchanger because no matter how well you chemically or power flush you will still have some muck left in it
