Tackling the sludge in your business could reap financial rewards

As the weather gets colder, businesses are becoming increasingly reliant on their central heating & hot water systems.

Plumbing & Gas Solutions Limited of Wymbush, Milton Keynes is urging businesses to think about the water quality of their heating & hot water systems as they up their usage

this winter.

Managing Director, Carl Yeomanson, explains why: “The black sludge in heating systems - also known as magnetite - is what causes cold spots on radiators, boiler and pump breakdowns, noisy systems, expensive fuel bills and so many more issues! The majority of people are just unaware of how this sludge destroys everything in its path.”

If magnetite and debris is not removed from heating systems, it will accumulate in radiators, pipework and heat exchangers, causing severe blockages. This diminishes the transfer of heat and can result in pipe, radiator & appliance damage. In some cases, it can also lead to premature failure of the boiler. Sludge is also a huge energy absorber! You can waste up to 4 times more energy trying to heat your water through the horrible

black stuff!

One way to remove the sludge and debris is to ‘power flush’ the system. Power flushing is a process using the latest technology to send water through the system at a high velocity to dislodge and remove any debris, limescale and sludge build-up to prolong the life of the heating system and reduce the risk of breakdowns. Plumbing & Gas Solutions Ltd use a variety of techniques to achieve the best results including the use of heat transfer fluids, thermal imaging technology, agitation, pH & Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) testing. Power flushing brings many benefits such as improving heat distribution and lowering energy bills while increasing system reliability.

Power flushing isn’t always the best approach and the team at Plumbing & Gas Solutions Ltd have other less invasive technologies available. With the support of some of Europe’s leading manufacturers in improving water quality, Carl and his team are best placed to offer a professional overview of your system.

“We have the experience and proven track record in improving the water quality and lowering fuel bills substantially while also making commercial buildings more comfortable for its occupants,”
