New and existing pipework installations on heating systems will require the removal of contaminate debris such as mill-scale, jointing compounds and building debris. These contaminants will increase the
risk of blockage at strainers and small bore control valves. Advances in modern day systems have made the process of pre-commission cleaning an essential procedure to facilitate maximum plant effciency.
As soon as heating systems are filled with water, deterioration of the system begins. The combination of water, air, a mixture of metals, and even installation debris and contaminants, can result in internal corrosion, sludge formation in low flow areas, and scaling of boilers and heat exchangers.
Symptoms include cold panels in radiators, blocked radiators, irritating boiler noises, a long recovery time after drawing off hot water, an inadequate water supply, and failure of pumps, radiators, and valves. These problems are not inevitable, and good care and maintenance of a system, and addition to the heating system of a quality corrosion and scale inhibitor.
The cleaning of existing systems sometimes requires practical solutions tailored to the customers needs. It may, for example, be desirable or necessary to keep heating or cooling systems operational whilst flushing and cleaning works to go ahead.
