Magvent Dirt & Magnetite Separator MAGCVD
Magnetite Sludge and Dirt Removal from Heating / Chilled Water Systems
Magnetite Sludge and Dirt in heating and chilled water systems can be the cause of major problems such as pump failure, corrosion and energy loss.
The Magvent (MAGCVD) is used to remove Magnetite Sludge and Dirt. Installed on the return pipe in the system the Magvent (MAGCVD) will eliminate all types of dirt particles from heating and chilled water systems.
Problems arising with Dirt and Magnetite in water systems
Dirt and Magnetite Removal
Magnetite, Dirt and Sludge can be the cause of major problems such as pump failure, corrosion and energy loss in Heating & Chilled Water Systems.
The Magvent removes Magnetite, Dirt and Sludge . Installed on the return pipe in the system the Magvent will eliminate all types of Magnetite, Dirt and Sludge from heating and chilled water systems down to 5 micron and less.
Features and Benefits
Stainless Steel; Safe, Clean, Efficient and Hygienic
This unit must be installed in the return pipe of the system.
The Magvent requires no special commissioning.
Maintenance - Removing & cleaning the Magnetic rod
Isolating valves should be installed either side of the connecting flanges on the unit. Close the two isolating valves. Secondly open the ball valve located on the bottom of the unit or the fast bleed valve. Care should be taken as the water may be very hot. Then remove the bolts located on the single front blank flange. Then remove the blank flange with the magnate attached. Extreme care should be taken at this point as the magnate is very powerful.
Remove all attached debris on the magnetite. Once the magnate is clean and free from debris please re-insert into the main body of the unit. Tighten all bolts on the flange; close all valves on the unit. Open the two isolating valves (slowly) and check for leaks (around the gasket on the blank flange).
Maintenance will be required to remove trapped Dirt and Sludge. Opening the ball valve at the bottom of the unit will flush out non magnetic dirt and sludge; The valve may be opened while the system is under pressure.
Magnetite is removed by removing and cleaning the magnet.
The system pressure will flush the dirt out. Leave the valve open until the collected dirt has been flushed out; repeat this operation every few days.
Once the water is clear it may be possible to drain every 6 months or so depending on the size and age of the system.
All flanges are drilled to BS 4504 PN16 as standard. Other flange rating are available on request.
All models are supplied with a ball valve for draining the collected dirt and sludge.
