YG-Flow Magnetic HIU Filter

The YG-Flow magnetic filters work by creating a loading zone that collect magnetic iron and steel particles. Magnets are geometrically arranged to form a magnetic field having a non-uniform magnetic strength.

Particles are most effectively separated when there is a strong magnetic gradient (rate of change of field strength with distance) from low to high. In other words, the higher the magnetic gradient, the stronger the attracting magnetic force acting on particles drawing them toward the loading zones. The strength of the magnetic gradient is determined by flux density, spacing and alignment of the magnets.

Water flow direction

  • Water inflow through the redirector then enters the middle part of the magnetic filter, ferrous particles are then drawn by the magnetic rod, non-ferrous particles will be filtered by stain-less steel mesh. Filtered water will flow along with the interior wall and finally flow out of the magnetic filter.

Why You Need the Magnet Filter?

  • Protect system components –  heat exchanger, pump, controls, radiator or underfloor heating.
  • Saving on heating bills.
  • No running cost.
  • Potentially extends system life time.
  • Warmer and quieter system.

Harmful effects to boiler system caused by ferrous particles

  • Sludge due to accumulation and corrosion of ferrous particles is easy to affect heat conduction of the plate heat exchanger within a HIU, reducing the heating efficiency and causing more energy consumption.
  • The heat blocked by the corrosive dirt escalates the temperature of the chamber, abnormal temperature overheats the metal components, which is likely to incur damage.
  • Sludge also affect pipeline system, causing blocking and reducing water flow, in extreme cases, serious blocking may trigger pipe burst.

Advantage of a magnetic filter – Ideal solution for HIU secondary side protection:

  • Removing iron, nickel and cobalt particles in the water.
  • Maximum surface magnetic field: 9200 gauss.
  • Saving energy by 6% per annum.
  • Providing consistent protection for the secondary system.
  • Reducing carbon emission.
  • Saving maintenance cost.
  • Extending longevity of the system.
  • No extra operating cost.
  • Easy to install and clean.
